Frizzy Hair

Remember how Pennsylvania is SOO humid? Remember how I never once did NOT have frizzy hair? Well it's back and in full force! But this time, Germany style. I feel like I look like this:

Well not the pretty part of that, but the hair part. It's crazy. I need professional hair help!

I'm messaging my sister on Facbook right now and I told her I feel bi-polar. I told her I feel elated to be here and then I think about David going on vacation and I freak out. Then I think about the awesome people I've met and feel happy again and then I think about shopping at German grocery stores and it's instant anxiety. So pretty much thats how it is. Although, I've found most German people speak some English. Especially around here. Someone told me that as long as they are not a grandparent age, they speak English cause they've learned it. That was proven wrong today when we went to OBI to get some paint. Both the paint guy and our check-out lady spoke great English and they were grandparentish age. Well the English wasn't great, but good enough for us to communicate! I'm thankful.

This is an old, unfinished post. The frizzy hair is still there. So is my bi-polar feeling toward Germany. It seriously changes every single moment. Right now I'm okay because we have Hulu Plus and I have a friend coming over. I also have a can of Diet Pepsi sitting next to me. Thus, I am happy.

Do you know about OPSEC? I don't either. But I kind of hate it. Because I'm now terrified to post anything that might remotely get me in trouble from the OPSEC trolls that are out there. I hear the trolls are disguised as army wives.

From Wikipedia (so it's absolutely true)
Operations security (OPSEC) is a term originating in US military jargon, as a process that identifies critical information to determine if friendly actions can be observed by adversary intelligence systems, determines if information obtained by adversaries could be interpreted to be useful to them, and then executes selected measures that eliminate or reduce adversary exploitation of friendly critical information.
Though the above statement is true in its official military format, OPSEC is the process of protecting little pieces of data that could be grouped together to give the bigger picture. OPSEC is the protecting of critical information deemed mission essential from military commanders. Protecting this critical information is through the use of email encryption software, being careful of who may be listening to you (like in a hotel bar), paying close attention to a picture you have taken (back ground), or not talking openly on social media sites about information on the unit's critical information list (military deployments, shortages of equipment or movement of VIPs). 
In more modern usage, the term has come to have a similar meaning including protecting information from unfriendly eyes, including industrial espionage, hackers, or social engineering.
So there you go. Now you know. I'm hoping I'll never be silly enough to post such information, but if I do, I hope you'll me out on it.

Here are some pictures of a place called Mantel Markt. It was a beautiful day. These are unedited pictures.

 I loved how the sun was shining on the houses but the sky was so dark. The little town was glowing.  Can't get enough of these little villages? What's the right term for them? They call them municipalities. But that's a hard word. Communities? Yes. That.

We'll be driving along in this gorgeous farming country and all of a sudden come upon a little community such as this. Then drive through it and that's the end. I like how everything is grouped together. It makes it seem much more organized. And pretty. And that's what's important right?

Those clouds in the picture? Those are the source of my frizzy hair. What's your favorite product for such a problem?
