I was thinking today, and I kind of feel bad.
By that I mean, I feel as if this community thinks I'm a creepazoid. I surely give compliments to the ladies of the community, but really I'm only trying to be nice. I swear. I almost feel as though I'm perceived as the guy who lurks around the community and comments on the pictures of hot mommas (myspace style, if you're on it) aka, the internet come on. I also feel like it might seem I'm just a guy with a dread fetish.
Which I do have, but that's not the point, who of us here don't have one?
Honestly, it isn't my style to hit on girls over the net.
I think that's turbo-creepy, and I hate it. I hate to be thought of that way, whether it's true or not...
So here's the deal. It's late now and I can't do it, and I won't be able to until after work tomorrow (I work the lunch shift at a restaurant), but I promise I'll scan the three pictures of me with dreads. I may be lying, there may be only two, but regardless: there will be pictures. It'll ease my mind at the least.
Soon after that I'll post pics of my dread making process, I've been meaning to anyhow.
Goodnight to you all, GUDU. If my notions are ill-concieved, then awesome, if not, then I'm glad I posted. You're all wonderful.
See you tomorrow.
Right. It's half past 2 in the morning. I can't sleep. I was lying awake in bed and I suddenly realised:
I think I want to be dreadless again.
It shocked me to realise it, but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. People have been commenting on how nice my natural hair must have been (I guess because I have more of it showing than usual.. my dreads are a bit loose these days) but this isn't anything to do with them. I think I'm ready for this change.
EEP! It's scary though. I'm still gonna stay in this community (if you'll have me!!) so I can see all of you and your beautiful dreadies.
Oh, and one other thing. I'm going to be getting people to sponsor me to do this. So if you want to help me out, just leave a comment with your name, email address, amount of money you'd be willing to give, and the charity you'd like to see me give the money to. Cool.
I hate to make myself out to be a liar, but my dad is on the computer that has the scanner and I can't use it. He's a CPA and is doing some important accountant crap. Not to diss on accountants, haha. You guys crunch the numbers so I don't have to.
Anyhow, I've been at work all day, a result of being called in to cover shifts at the last minute. AND I had to work a double, which sucked. And now I'm going to head off to a promising night of psychadelics.
So, in short, there's a raincheck on my photos. It'll be tomorrow, rain or shine, sleet or snow...etc etc. I don't have to work and I'm sure I could convince my dad that he needs an extended lunch break so that I can use the scanner.
Thanks for all the encouragement guys, it really assuaged my worries.
