Labels are for soupcans AND people!

The big 1-0.

May, 1995: A teenager with long hair gets fed up with fighting his hair constantly - multiple brushings daily, blow-drying, products, etc... just to have 'straight, non-tangly hair'. In a fit of pique, he shaves his head.

During the intervening time, he decides he likes not having to fight his hair, but becomes lazy, and never sees a barber again.

July 1997: A teenager with growing hair gets fed up with fighting his hair constantly - multiple brushings daily, blow-drying, products, etc... just to have 'straight, non-tangly hair'. In a fit of pique, he throws his brush into the river.

During the intervening time, he remembers how much he likes not having to fight his hair. Being lazy, he also decides not to go out and buy a new brush.

July 2007: Sitting in the south of France, a no-longer-teenager finds himself amazed that he's had dredlocks for a decade. They reach his knees, and he's not had to fight with his hair in ages.

Wow.

ps: those people are me.
face of the me

Finally, a more or less decent update

(Who knew that life would be busier during summer break than when classes are in session??? Every weekend I end up going to some "you must come!!!!" family function, and this weekend I'm sick. That doesn't seem right...)



I haven't posted in forever. So, I come bearing lots of pictures of what my dreadies currently look like. About a quarter of them have very recently turned 1, and the rest will be blowing out the lone candle on their birthday cake in November. Well. Not literally. All right, more words are to follow along with pictures under the cut.

PS: my camera has not been my friend lately and so I resorted to taking pictures using a built-in MacBook camera, pardon the craptacular quality! Also, if you think the pictures are a little big, let me know, it shall be fixed.

Hope everyone's summer is funful! :-)
