(no subject)

so Josh and I just returned from Texas and we're now back in our designated countries, which is balls. We visited with my dad and my cat, drank a lot of beer and rejoiced in being able to wear a tshirt outside.

On the plane from Atlanta to NYC a Jamaican flight attendant came up and started touching my hair and asked me if I was "trying to get dreads". I told her I'd had them for 2.5ish years and she looked shocked, but then started telling me how if I wanted them to stay together I'd have to wax them, etc. I just told her that wax never washes out so I don't use it, which made her think for a second but then say "so is all that string to keep your hair together?"
uh yeah.

Other than that though, Josh and I were pretty much left alone the entire time we were in Texas. There was one drunk guy that sat too close to us and kept telling us we were free spirits and how he usually doesn't shave his beard, which I think was meant to tell us that he too was a free spirit...kay.

Although at the bowling alley in the lane next to us there was a guy who told us how his spiderweb on the elbow tattoo represented his first kill. I didn't ask what he killed but I'm assuming it was a person. I had to stop myself from asking if he did it with his bare hands or with a gun, because in my eyes it doesn't count if you kill someone with a gun. Anyone can pull a trigger, but not everyone can crush a trachea with their pinky. Ya get me?

Anywhoodle this fast is making me all crazylike so I should probably get to sleep and dream about the bagel with scallion tofu cream cheeze that I will be mackin on tomorrow morning.

my dreads are finally a cute short :] ♥

bahahha i totally have not been paying attention to the community obviously. i just went back and was like 'WHAT IS UP WITH ALL THE FLIPPYS?!?!' darn.

BTW. do any of you guys watch Split Ends? there was an episode the other day with this woman who came in wanting her dreads tightened, and there was also a stylist who had dreadlocks. it was kinda icky cos there was so much wax and such involved. the lady was going on and on and on about how she aspires to be like the rastas and the chinese Tibetan monks. i kinda lol'd at her since she was preaching all this shit and was going to a SALON to get her dreads done. i'll find clips and post them.

It's been quite a long time =]

So it's been a while guys!! I just wanted to post some pictures to show you the progress I've made over the past year and a half =D I can't imagine my life without dreads...they've followed me through my worst struggles and my happiest of times - They've been through it all with me, and I don't know what I would do without them!

Anyway, let me know what you think, and how you guys are!! I've missed you all!! I'll be updating with a time line soon, so keep checkin back!

cut dreads as extensions?

hello gudu members

i cut off my five year old dreads last week. i still have them, and a friend of my told me a gudu member posted about how he sold his dreads on ebay as extensions. i'm curious about doing this myself, and am just wondering if this is a good idea?

they're all between 8 and 10 inches long (I was able to keep four inches of length), incredibly tight and very clean, 100% real. just wondering if this is a feasible idea or not. thanks for the help.
