It's a nice summery look for him. I don't know, it just breathes.

does doug not read your website, jacob?

Doug DOES read my website. In fact, he was the first one to comment on me putting his picture up. Why do you ask?

I think it's just laziness....although Doug, being the leading authority on why Doug doesn't post on the page, might have a more well-reasoned theory. Ironically, though, if my theory IS correct, he won't vocally back me up.

Actually, the "Supplies" reference is a reference to UHF. A group of kung-fu guys jump out of a broom closet that's labeled "supplies" and start kicking ass. But when they jump out, they yell, "Supplies!" It's a say-it-out-loud racist (racy?) joke.

Handyman kits............?

Handyman kits? Like TOOLboxes? Am I a tool? If so that is news to me.

Hmmmm... I guess that I don't comment out of a combination of laziness and an un-thought-through idea that my thoughts on things that Jacob posts are more easily conveyed to him through some kind of chat program rather than by making them public record on his site. I guess that many people are wondering about how I feel about the new haircut, so a post IS quite called for in this case...

I got the haircut for a lot of reasons. I had been thinking for at least a couple of years that the reason I kept my hair long was for low maintenance (just pull it back in the morning and go) but I recently began to realize that it was a rather high maintenance hairstyle that was frequently getting caught in things I was working on. I also started to pay attention to other guys that had pony tails and became horrified that most pony-tailed individuals were either aging hippies (which there are PLENTY of in Eugene) or fitness celebrities like Tony Little. I don't really want to be affiliated with either of these groups, so I decided that I shouldn't share their hairstyle. I guess the long hair thing was basically a relic of my junior high/high school self-conscious effort to look like my rock-star heroes. It stayed for so long because I don't care all that much about my personal appearance, and I tend to resist change because I subconsciously (and incorrectly) associate it with being "trendy".

Now that the hair is gone, I don't really miss it. I don't get it caught in tools/car windows/buttons/food/etc. anymore. My hair is even more low maintenance now (no combing at all!) But most importantly, I have discovered that my hair is really fluffy, causing it to stand up and make me feel like Eraserhead, a feeling that is both unsettling and comforting in an odd way.

Interesting. It seems that I can no longer see any comments posted by Michele. I seem to recall one about Pippy Longstocking braids and the location of Anderson. Regarding the braids, yes they will be missed, but my new routine of getting out of bed, eating, drinking coffee and leaving is quite a bit more convenient than inserting 30 minutes into the agenda to wrap my hair around a piece of coat-hanger (although I agree that the braids looked mighty sharp).
Regarding Anderson's whereabouts: I have no idea. I really wish that I knew how to get a hold of him because I haven't talked to him in ages. Did you try looking for him on the Western Washington University website?

I guess that means that Pippi Longstocking also had to take 30 minutes out of her whacky, fun-filled, "mean-adults-can-suck-my-cock" day to fix her hair up like that. Doug, Pippi, i apologize to you both. i had no idea.
