the beauty, the splendor, the wonder of my hair

The Department of Choosing Department Heads will be in session in just a little bit.

I just had eight inches cut off of my hair.

I need a moment alone.

(yes, two nights in a row I'm quoting lyrics from Hair)

Gimme a head with hair, long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen
Give me down to there, hair!
Shoulder length, longer (hair!)
Here baby, there mama, Everywhere daddy daddy

Hair! (hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair)
Flow it, Show it;
Long as God can grow it, My Hair!

Let it fly in the breeze and get caught in the trees
Give a home to the fleas in my hair
A home for fleas, a hive for bees
A nest for birds, there ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder of my

Hair! (hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair)
Flow it, Show it;
Long as God can grow it, My Hair!

I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy
Snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty
Oily, greasy, fleecy, shining
Gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen
Knotted, polka-dotted; Twisted, beaded, braided
Powdered, flowered, and confettied
Bangled, tangled, spangled and spaghettied!

O-oh, Say can you see; my eyes if you can,
Then my hair's too short!
Down to here, down to there,
Down to where, down to there;
It stops by itself!
doo doo doo doo doot-doot doo doo doot

They'll be ga-ga at the go-go
when they see me in my toga
My toga made of blond, brilliantined, Biblical hair
My hair like Jesus wore it
Hallelujah I adore it
Hallelujah Mary loved her son
Why don't my Mother love me?

Hair! (hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair)
Flow it, Show it;
Long as God can grow it, My Hair!

» I Feel Your Pain from The Bitch Girls
I've been a little behind on my blog reading since things have been so busy. All I can say is that I feel your pain, Michele. I cut 8 inches off of my hair in October. Most of it has [Read More]


What a coinkydink. I had three inches cut off my hair yesterday.

Is that something like the Department of Redundancy Department?

you know the difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut?

2 weeks

oh baby. drink one for me. haircuts are the stuff of nightmares.


Hopefully you saved it--there is apparently quite the market for hair.

even though I don't miss my hair, I miss other peopl ethinking I am a long-haired hippie freak...because now, that my father's/grandfather's hairline has taken hold, "they" actually have to get to know me as a person before "they" can make any judgements; and then they call me a long haired hippie freak who now has a shaven noggin' and deceives them without their better (or lack of) judgement


I was going to cut mine off a couple of years ago but decided to paint my front door purple instead. What made ya do it??

My hair is too thick to be long. It weighed about fifty pounds and looked like shit.

Yes, pix please. NASA needs them, we are going to include them on a research thingee we're going to be launching into deep space...

in the new glasses picture, it's only down to your collarbones. eight inches?!

i really just like saying "eight inches" over and over.

My last haircut (performed by my gracious husband) was accomplished with an electric clipper and a number 3 guard.

Net effect: I look like a Genie.

I've got a hair appointment tomorrow to lose 4 inches off mine. Should I just start drinking now?

I had hair that was down passed my ass and now the longest pieces are like 3 inches... don't you think that was stressful...
