A couple folks I haven't seen in a while asked me how the haircut turned out. Excellent, I'd say. Karen, who works at Suede, gives the best haircut I've ever had. On one level this sucks because I was happily spending under $20 at Rudy's Barbershop for the past many years. But the proof is in the various complements I've received. I'm down with the blond, I've decided. It's been a summer thing for the past few years but I have to say that I've loving the bald-spot hiding properties of the blond hair. So I think as my sexy/whitetrash (take your pick) dark roots proliferate, I'll be back to see Karen.
