Hair. Hair hair hair.

I don't know why I do these sorts of things. Hair hair hair. Bizarre commitments, and the like. I'm sure I did it when I was much younger--I just can't remember back that far. I do know that during the summer between my sophomore and (first) junior year, I said, "OK self, here's the deal: you're not going to wear shorts or short-sleeved shirts all summer, nor are you going to cut your hair or shave." Right. I was working in the lawn & garden department of Wal-Mart at the time, which led to some fun, near-delirious events. Then I closed the end of the summer with an internship in the PR department at Geneva. I think I now know why they told me to stay inside all day and keep out of the public's sight.

Hair hair! Now I'm doing it again. I grew a beard. Big dead, since I'm fickle and my facial hair grows quickly. But I also told myself, "Jason, don't cut your hair until Beaver Falls Coffee & Tea Co. opens." And I responded with, "OK."

So I have a fairly trimmed beard and a mane of hair that--as of now--growing at a freakish rate. I'm at the stage where I have to periodically toss my hair back, much like a surfer or fashion model. A low-rent surfer or fashion model. If I drive with my car window rolled down, the wind most certainly whips (whips!) through my hair. HAIR!

I'm predicting that in two weeks, my hair will be crazy. It's already a noticeable presence; I feel it all of the time, have to look through strands of brown half of the time. I sort of like the look, and I guess I'll have to like it until the shop opens. I'll probably want to cut it, at some point, at least for a sanitary reason. But until then: hair.

dude... i know exactly what you mean. i haven't had a haircut in months now, and i haven't shaved in at least a month. which i basically am only doing because i'm not sure what Harvey wants me to have for the show. i really need to ask him about that.

i really wanna be un-hairy again.

The Coffee Shop has a Name! Yay for Beaver Falls Coffee & Tea Co. !

As for your hair being a noticeable presence... Truely sorry, but as a girl with hair like Cousin It, it's hard to sympathize with the follicular struggles of one such as yourself. ;-p
