April 6th, 2006



I'm getting something done to my hair. I don't know what, though. My first plan was to have this done last Friday. Then on April 1st I could post that I had my hair cut. And then everyone would think it was an April Fool's joke when it wasn't.

Basically, I'm tired of my hair. I've been growing it long since October of 2002 when I was trying to impress Deborah and she liked men with long hair. I've not touched it since either primarily because a number of women for whom I get tingly feelings like long hair. Sadly, if any of them have tingly feelings for me my hair hasn't inspired them to act on those feelings. But now it's so long and troublesome because fine hair breaks easily that it's a pain to take care of. As long as it wasn't a problem, I didn't mind leaving it long on the pet my hair please angle. But no more.

I've gone from really long hair to zipped hair before, though I don't know if I want that so much. Perhaps keep it long, but chop off much of the length so that the damaged part is gone and I have an actual hair style rather than just long hair. I have an appointment tomorrow at a swanky salon where I'm promised that the stylist will be able to tell me what to do with my hair. But if she tells me to chop it, off it comes.


Recruiting mentors

Tonight's Community for Youth activity was to canvas a neighborhood recruiting mentors for next year's program. The students in my group were great. They approached people. We chatted with store owners. We put up flyers. We talked to passers by.

But the fun part was the guy collecting signatures for some initiative to make Seattle or Washington greener or something like that. After chatting with him a bit, we walked back past him. At that point he asked So what are these brats names? And not in a playful manner. We all did a double take and the Come again?. He repeated it, and made it worse. What are these racist brats' names? At which point they nearly exploded, and I hustled them across the street lest they kick the guy's ass (and they could have and looked about to) and then have to bail them out of jail.

Fucker deserved to get his ass kicked though.
