I have a study-partnership with a guy from my anatomy class, and when we met for breakfast yesterday we ended up talking about everything but anatomy, including dreadlocks. He told me that when he was high school he had a dread hawk, which I thought was awesome until he told me how he started his dreads. He used crisco and aluminum foil to make dreadlocks. I asked him how the fuck he did that and he said he simply sectioned his hair with cloth hair bands, slathered the sections up with crisco, twisted them and wrapped them in foil. I don't know how that could possibly work, as crisco is literally vegetable oil, but he said they help up fairly well. He only had them for a few months and I can't imagine how he kept them clean, I'd be really interested to see pictures. I told him that was definitely a method I had never heard before, and I thought I'd just about heard them all.
Now onto the photo dump - pictures from my trip to South Florida and more.
This concludes my procrastination, and now it's about time I stop ignoring the fact that I have a symposium on Creutzfeldt-Jakob's disease due on Monday. Anyone else besides me terrified by prion diseases?
