The Long Awaited Haircut

POST #    1255

Sunday, I went over to my local barbershop and got a lot of hair trimmed off. I told the barber that she could take 4 or 5 inches off, but it seems like it was about 8 inches. I feel like a Polish/Chinese businessman from when Regan was president. It's a strange feeling.

My last haircut was all the way back in January. A list of pros and cons so far:

- I can see.
- No longer eat hair with my food and have the subsequent food flavored hair.
- No longer called "mam" by flight attendants.
- Was not arrested all week by the police despite being near protesters.
- Now using less shampoo and grooming for less time, so it's a money/time saver.
- It only cost me $8.

- Hair now short enough so it goes right into my eyes.
- The feeling of all the wind blown hair is diminished.

so that's what you look like underneath it all. Perhaps I'll have to stop by the wings night now that you're recognizable.

"smush my boobs on your new hair cut" - um yeah.

So tien if you are up and looking at your blog e-mail me, i am having desperate problems and cannot communicate with anyone right now. I have another 40 minutes at this lovely internet cafe and am trying to contact all my slackass friends who are still resting their sweet heads.

I like the cut, you do look a bit younger. Go eight dollars!
