Today, Autumn wrote about The Conundrum of Body Hair. I’m chiming in. I recently went about three months without shaving my underarms, two and a half months without shaving my legs. From October through the New Year, I grew increasingly fuzzy. The results looked something like this: I say “something like this” because me and […]
Once upon a time, I was a cute li’l baby: As was my boyfriend, Ian: There is no moral to this story. Sometimes a person feels like baby-gazing.
Even when I’m not blogging, I am almost certainly wearing clothes. Last photo of the fauxhawk before it stopped looking like a fauxhawk… plus an awkward petticoat reveal. Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose… plus a scorpion brooch for good measure. How short is too short? Sometimes, you don’t know until you’re […]

The very best thing about blogging is getting to know fantastic people. On November 11, 2006, I posted the following words to Myspace. Somehow, Jen happened upon […]
(A flashback to May 4, 2007, two days after my first ever buzz cut. Classy, Myspace-style photo was taken immediately after the haircut.) My hair is gone, suddenly. I’m adjusting to some changes: 1) Everyone in the world wants to to rub my head. On one hand, I love love love this; I’m a touchy-feely […]

This will sound hopelessly obsessive, but it’s the truth: lately, I have found hair repulsive. Only one girl out of every 20 has hair that’s pretty enough to impress me, and I find […]
