OK, now I'm kinda confused. I was all excited on Friday because Condi's coiffure seemed to have undergone substantial alterations. Today, though, it kinda looks the same as it has for months. What gives? Well, obviously it was at least trimmed on Thursday, because it is shorter. I believe that on Friday, however, the 'do was still in that euphoric post-treatment phase where everything has a lot more volume, so that made Condi's hair delightfully spherical and puffy. It looks like the party's over today, though.
I'll keep the Condoleezza Rice Hairdo Alert System at "Elevated" for the next few days, as the post-wash'n'set period is still a treacherous time, but I'm afraid a rise in the threat level to "High" is unlikely (she would basically have to put a traffic cone on her head) and, alas, "Severe" is still something we can only fantasize about.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention another possibility, that this is the Animagic, Disneytronic Condibot, and it's hair hasn't been modified yet. See? This is why we can't be too hasty or too eager to fool around with the Condoleezza Hairdo Alert System.
