today I must write out the third essay assignment and grade some papers. I need to write some dissertation but I have to pay attention to my students first. I also really need to do laundry but might run down to rei for retail therapy/laundry insurance.

I was thinking of growing some hair for commencement and was putting all kinds of goo in it to get it to lie close to my head instead of sticking out straight like a bristle brush but it had gotten to the point where my scalp was dripping with the stuff and my hair was still sticking out and it was kind of gross and besides that I was depressed and angry yesterday so I washed all the goo off and took out the clippers and shaved myself bald again.

sooo much better. I can't explain exactly what it is about being bald that makes me feel strong and confident, but there it is. I was like, I'm gonna shave that mom right offa my head. it worked pretty well.

i've tried to figure out why (let's say) lex luthor's so damn sexy to me. i think the hairless scalp is sort of, well, phallic. or maybe i'm making that up. *g* in any case, i'm glad it makes you feel strong and confident! (i need something to make me feel like that.)

no I think you might be onto something there. it's as though if I can't have a phallus in the usual place I'll just turn my head into one. can't speak for what bio-men are trying to make up for.

for me in particular, it makes me look closer to my real age and seems to give me an air of authority that I don't know I would feel if Picard had a full head of hair. :D

also your jaw muscles, on testosterone, become more pronounced and they add that angularity to the temples that screams predator. or something. people on the street don't have to know that I hunt mainly spinach. :)

Really? Huh, never would have guessed that.

Yea, when I shaved my head, I had guys in gangs giving me the eyeball, trying to figure out which gang I was in. This was not necessarily, BTW, a good thing... (yikes!)

Yea, it is a manly thing - scary and manly...

It does drip in the rain though --
