Stuff That Happened Today

The Pirate and I were walking across a parking lot and found a little squishy translucent silicone ball with soft prickles all over it. It was laying on the ground, dirty and dusty and kicked to the curb. I recognized it immediately for what it was. A street urchin.

I also decided to shave my head. I'm toying with the idea of eBaying my shaved hair, but I don't know. It may be more trouble than it's worth. But I've just decided that I want to start over, and I must confess a sort of curiosity about the actual color of my own hair. I proposed the idea to the Pirate and he was surprisingly receptive. Woo-hoo!

And today, I did not stick anything up my nose. Not even once.

Oh, I can't wait to see you shaved. I've been wanting to shave my head for years. I don't know why I haven't yet, except that I think I'm a little bit of a coward deep down. But I still really want to. Also, I think my sister might kill me (but who cares about that). :)

So many blessings with that.

Would YOU like to come over and shave my head? You can take pictures and it's like shaving your own head, only without the consequences. And as a bonus, I'll let you take my many, many eyebrow pencils and write whatever you want on the shaved head.

I would love to take part in your shaving ceremony. :)

When were you planning on doing it? I think I'm free Friday and Saturday, if you would like to do it that soon.

I was hoping for tonight or tomorrow. I'm booked for the next few weekends and my hair is REALLY pissing me off.

I could probablly do it tomorrow night. Though I'm working in San Fran and I don't get off until 6, so I wouldn't be back until 7:30 or 8. Don't know if that works for you.

If it doesn't work out for me to be there, then it doesn't work out for me to be there. I can be there in spirit, at least.

Yeah, it'll have to be in spirit. Don't worry - I'll take pictures so that everyone can see the process and share it with me.

:) In spirit then. I can't wait to see the pictures.

I keep threatening to shave my head for the same reasons! I don't think I have the guts, though. And my hubby is NOT receptive to the idea!

I was completely surprised that he was as receptive as he was, considering that the last time I cut my hair very short, he barely looked at me for a day or so until he got used to it. Then again, that time, I did it without warning him. This time, he gets to feel included in the decision.

I'm pretty certain that the answer about my actual hair color is going to be very disappointing. For all the time it's been red/blue, I keep getting comments from people who tell me how much they love it, and I want to say "I don't suppose I can convince you that it's natural," but I always forget because it's derailing to me to receive compliments.

I'm pretty sure that at this point, it's just mostly gray. :(
