y'see, because this is typed out you miss the whole tone and exchange of body language and looks and relaly, if i could somehow type all of htose things out you'd understand how annoying it was. um. why do you think i dreaded my hair? because i want people like you to ask me all the damn time?
that's the other thing about my dreads too. i love them and so does matthew and yes, we want to live as natural and organically and red-meat free as possible (which will not be half as hardcore as others), but we are not hippies. i don't wear flowy dresses and birkenstocks and neither does he. and if we did, it would be for comfort, not to be called hippies. i just get sick of these automatic labels that are put on people if *one* thing happens to fit a category. who else agrees with me on this?
and there is nothing wrong with hippies or people who happily define themselves as such. i am just not.
