does this thing work?

A Two-fer
The title means the lady's going to try two things at once:
1) Impress her friends with her ability to upload a picture. Because...whoah...mad skillz, neh?
2) Show the picture of her with new short hair. As is often the case with pictures, it shows, with brutal honesty, just how many, many pounds she has to pare from her frame. Ah, but the hair ... the hair ... *uses mad mental skillz to divert viewers' eyes from torso to tonsure*

Ooh, I like it!

And psshh, no distraction necessary. :-)

Thankee kindly!

I like!

I kinda like it, too! (And that had by no means been a foregone conclusion.) The young man who tidied up my geometrically challenged initial cut also turned out to be a comic book fan, who liked many of the same titles BB and I do, so we all had quite a nice conversation as he did his excellent work.

It's cute, but it's going to take some time for my head to wrap itself around your new look. You're not quite as unrecognizable as jbru was when he cut his long hair and shaved, too, but...wow. That's a big change.

Your glasses are good, too.

Congratulations on the demonstration of your mad skillz.

I was surprised by just how much my face changed shape when I dropped a good chunk of weight in 2007-2008. Now that the weight is doing its best to creep back on, I'm noticing the facial differences more than I did the first time around.

You look good to me. You always do.

Heh. I think you've seen me with short hair before; in 1985 and 1986, since we damned near shaved it off when Andy was about two months old. Since then, however, it's grown steadily, with only inch cuts to trim split ends.

And hair does grow back; I didn't get bangs precisely because, once I decide to grow it back (and I will, knowing my own essentially "long hair" bent), I'll want it all the same length.

"And hair does grow back;..."
On behalf of myself, my father, and a bazillion other men and women who can do at part or all of their shampooing with a face cloth, fuck you very much for the sage wisdom.

Ah, a hit, a palpable hit. My most profound apologies.

Your hair looks great though it seems to be a different shade of red from when I saw it last. Maybe my memory is faulty.
Apr. 12th, 2009 07:06 am (UTC)
Well, my hair has bounced about the red section of the spectrum, since I've never minded playing with my quite gleefully artificial tresses. It could well have been lighter, or more gold, or darker, when we last saw each other. I highly doubt it's your memory!

Looks good (not just the hair).

Thanks! If you look above my head, you'll see a row of guitars hanging on a wall. BB took the shot just outside his favorite guitar shop, where we'd gone so that he could drool over 1900-vintage Gibson guitars, some ukeleles and banjos, and the odd Rickenbacker. And I'll herewith put in a plug for The Guitar Works, 709 Main Street in Evanston. If you're a guitar player in the Chicago area, take time out and visit this fine establishment. Owner Terry Straker is an honest and excellent artist and craftsman, with a fine team of folks just like him. Don't waste your time and money on music chain stores, come to The Guitar Works!

I'm liking the hair
Apr. 12th, 2009 04:57 pm (UTC)
Glad to hear it, especially from a long-haired lass such as yourself!

Many thanks! (I understand that you went through a similar transformation, which I don't think I've seen and am intrigued to hear about.)
Apr. 12th, 2009 07:51 pm (UTC)
Looks good! My hair is getting a little darker. I got a lot of silver in the three-week hospital stays and now it's almost all falling out. Weird.

Physical stress can do that - people can see their hair change color, or texture (straight to curly, curly to straight, that sort of thing.)
Apr. 13th, 2009 02:06 am (UTC)
Awesome hair. What pounds? Where?
Apr. 13th, 2009 06:09 am (UTC)
Bless you, my daughter!
Apr. 13th, 2009 10:00 am (UTC)
You look awesome. I see no pounds to be lost.

Thanks - I wish the picture had shown more of my motorcycle jacket (which should, properly speaking, be referred to as a non-motorcycling jacket, since I don't own or ride a motorbike); BB and FB gave it to me as a Christmas present back about 16 or so years ago. It's way cool.
Apr. 13th, 2009 03:43 pm (UTC)
Bah you look great! Sympathy to Bob's hair...
Apr. 13th, 2009 03:51 pm (UTC)
Heh. I'll pass the sympathy on.
Apr. 13th, 2009 04:57 pm (UTC)
Apr. 13th, 2009 08:58 pm (UTC)
What a pleasure to see your smiling face. I miss you both so very much at Minicon.
