..looking backwards...

Yes, I do work for a molecular genealogy company..no, not like I am a genetisist or anything..

"Hello? GeneTree..how may I help you??"

..but this post is not about genealogy..oh no.

It's about me not looking backwards...at me..

All of me..actually, my hair in particular.


It has a mind of it's own. Seriously.


So when I see the front view of me..and I think..

"lookin' go-oo-d"

I slowly turn around and ...


{que shower scene music from Psyco...}

AKKKK! It looks like...like...


..you know, when someone gets hit in the face with a pie??...and all their hair jets out in a circle around the meringue?


Yeeeaah...that's what the back of my head looks like...all. the. time.

Seems I have "post-chemo-cowlicks-stupified-hair-syndrome"



So, I just don't look anymore. I figure, if you're lookin' at me walkin' away...it's probably not my hair you're focused on..

I'm just sayin'...

My hair today is always a problem.
It was great when I was young and could just wear it long and straight. I keep trying new styles but non seem to work.

I remember when you were upset about a haircut that was shaved at the sides to stop it sticking out with your glasses. Now its the back. Yet all looks fine in your photos. As one has alredy said. That is the latest style to have... messy hair. I have a problem with those ugly age spots all over me and in my hair. Yuk.

I have a cowlick, too. Not only that, I passed it along in the gene pool and everyone after me has the same danged one. My hairdresser tells me that there's no cure. My hair is growing in a definite spiral. What?!

I have two cowlicks - one on my forehead and one at the top of my head like Dennis the Menace. I just cut my own hair for the first time. I put it in a ponytail and cut off the tail. Then I trimmed it. Hmmm - not too bad!
