Hair today, gone tomorrow.

We're getting some family pictures taken today. The wife's side of the family. There is two additions to the family that were not present for the last time, so we're about due. So, not having had a haircut in months, I needed at least a trim.

My hair was getting fairly longish. Not shoulder length long mind you, but fairly long nonetheless. I had been growing it out intentionally, not just because I'm too cheap to get a haircut...which I am.

What's the difference between a good haircut and a bad one?
Two weeks.

What that means is that saving two weeks of bad hair costs my wife about $100! This post is not about me complaining how much it costs to pay someone to hold a pair of scissors and not royally screw up. Didn't we learn about scissors back in kindergarten?

I knew I needed to get this taken care of at the beginning of the month. So, while eating out for lunch one day...nobody tell Andrea that I spent money on lunch. Because that is WAY worse than $100 on a haircut!!!

Anyway, while at lunch I notice this little hair place next door. A haircut for less than $10 I'm on it!

I walk in and the lady working there motions to an empty seat...they're all empty, not just the one. Should have been a clue, but it's the middle of the day, how should I know how busy a hair salon should be. I only see the inside of one every few months.

She asks what I want done.

I pull my hair down in front of my eyes and make a line with my finger about 1/2 inch above my eyebrow (I only have one). "Only trim about an inch to inch and a half off."
"So just trim it up."
"Would you like it over your ear?"
"Yes please."

About the time I saw a good four inches of my hair fall to the ground I realized the English comprehension skills were a little lacking. I can only keep growing this stuff for so much longer you know.

So, I'm back to the same haircut I've had for years. It looks good (after I trimmed the bangs myself when I got home), but I was growing it out.

I wonder if we could pass a law stating that people have to pass an English test to work in any job that requires interaction with customers.

Solidly Anti-McCain

Read this.

It may be typical of the pro-Obama Dungeons & Dragons crowd to disparage a fellow countryman's memory of war from the comfort of mom's basement, but most Americans have the humility and gratitude to respect and learn from the memories of men who suffered on behalf of others.

I had no intention of voting for someone so out of touch anyway, but this sure seals the deal. This statement alone is so far gone from reality, you would think McCain was a Hollywood A-lister.

Just to be fair and balanced. I have no intention of voting for the racist, anti-american, working-class hater that is Obama either.

Everyone take a moment and think about these two incompetents that the majority of the country are going to vote a very sheep like manner. Can you not think of at least one person in your very own neighborhood that has more common sense than both of these guys put together?
