Women don’t whistle

A funny thing happened to me in the office today: I was whistling the tune of an African (christmas?) song*) which we are singing in my choir at the moment. It was a quarter to nine and the secretary from the adjacent department came in to “to check who it was” as she thought it couldn’t be me: “Women don’t whistle, normally.”

*) A song that is strangely popular in German speaking countries: Listen to this impression of the song by some unknown German choir – very Germanic still, isn’t it?

Bangs – yes or no?

BangsAbout an hour ago I had the idea that I would look more like myself if I had bangs. I asked my boyfriend how he would like that over the phone, and I surely would have been the first woman on earth if I had gotten a straight answer out of him upon a question of that kind…

Instead, I created a little photoshoppery and am now hoping for the precious feedback of my dear blogger friends: Shall I get bangs or not? [Bangs courtesy Bamboo Girl]

Straightforward answer, please!
