Quick Thought for the Weekend
Never leave yourself alone with bleach and Manic Panic when you’re currently bored with/despising your hairstyle.
I am a roller derbying, dark fantasy author. This blog chronicles my adventures in life, writing and skating.

For what it’s worth, real dreds do leave you about an inch of ‘open hair’ on your scalp. I spent two years trying to knot them right down to the scalp before I found out I was supposed to have that bit of reg’lar hair. Now, it comforts me. If/when I do opt for the big change, I’ll have *really* short spikes, not bare scalp!

An eye for British hilarity, maybe?

Kate — Those scissors and I are good pals. Or mortal enemies (depending on the outcome).Sqt — I’m jealous. I love nerd girl glasses.Steve — See, that’s what did it. I had synth dreads for over two years (I was–and am–still on the fence about real ones and having my head shorn if I got sick of them). So, my head needed a rest and I took them out. Then came, “My hair is flat and boring. I look like shit. Oh? What’s this? Hair bleach? Okay.” Charles — I think maybe for not dying by just using the toaster, or something. Lana — That image is from one of the best U.K. sitcoms ever made, “The Young Ones.” RRN — Hair is transitory, I guess. It grows back and it’s fairly resilient despite our attempts to turn it into hay. I guess we know we can do pretty much anything to it and the consequences are fairly temporary (which is far better than being bummed and running out to get a tattoo that mirrors your current mood, but not much else).

That rules.What is it with hair ? For many many years every time something horrible happened I went strait into the bathroom and shaved all my hair off. I never really understood why…But it always seemed to help.

*LOL* Is that image from a British TV show?

Used to be one of my favorite hobbies, pre-dreds. Problem was, I’d forget my hair was, say, bright green, and I’d wonder why people were staring. Not that I minded, just you know, was my fly unzipped or what?Ah, good times…

Funny, I just posted about going brunette and getting nerd-girl glasses. It must be the week of drastically changing one’s appearance.

Oh, dear. Been there. Been laughed at by kids in the store when I went to buy something to cover it up.Beware the little scissors in the bathroom too…Now, go drag out that fabulous cowboy hat and head to the salon. 😉
