Who has short hair? I have short hair.


No, this isn't a Nair commercial gone bad. This is me, sick of dealing with my hair.

For years I'd been letting it grow long, trying desperately to get it into a pony tail. But it's too damn wavy and wild to do that without a ton of mousse or gel.

So when my marriage bombed I got it cut. I lost the pony tail, but kept a fair bit of volume, because after having been in the Air Force for four years, damned if I wanted to go back to that short.

But now? Screw it. I'm tired of primping and preening. I'm tired of putting sticky slimy crap in my hair to hold it in place. I'm tired of constantly looking in the mirror to make sure nothing is out of place.

I tried just styling with water for almost a week, but it wasn't working. I looked like a mad scientist or something.

So screw it!

Zzzzzt. Buzz buzz. Zzzzzzt.

After an hour in the bathroom with a hair clipper, I now have short short hair. Hopefully it doesn't look that bad. I think I did fairly good job for the first time I've really done a serious cut of my own hair in six years. I got good at cutting my own hair with a clipper in the Air Force. I'd like to think I've still got it.

Of course, now I'm hungry.

After I got out of the shower (from washing the clipped itchy hairs away) I found a message from my mum on the answering machine. So I called her back, and an hour and a half later said goodbye. I'd make myself something to eat now, but hell, It's about bed time. Maybe it's just as well, since I cheated on my diet at work by snagging a narsty evil chicken and cheese sandwich from the vending machine.

But damn I'm hungry. This watermelon Smirnoff Twisted isn't cutting it. And it's not as good as the grape or orange flavors. It's not bad, but, meh. I want a hot dog. A big arse Chicago hot dog. With onions and relish and ketchup. And a poppy seed bun. Mmmmmmmmm. I wonder if I can find anything worth eating in the fridge. I doubt it.
