compulsive hair disorder  

P-Con is in two days. I keep considering showing up with a shiny new v. short haircut. I have deduced that I feel my hair should either be short enough to show my ears, or long enough to pull back, because with this chin-length bob I never wear earrings, and there’s no point in having five ear holes into which I never put earrings. And in looking at pictures of me with long hair, I don’t actually *like* long hair on me very much, which suggests short is perhaps the wiser way to go.

OTOH, I should know by now that I shouldn’t get my hair cut when I’m in the middle of writing a book. OTOH, I am never not in the middle of writing a book.

I can see two advantages to cutting it short: one is it would remove most of the bleached stuff, which I use as an excuse to not swim because it would only damage that hair that much more. (I would obviously be obliged to find *another* excuse not to swim, then.) The other is that short hair recovers from hat head more readily, and with summer coming up and the anticipation of wearing a big hat a lot, that’d be nice.

…why don’t I have a CHD icon?

Now, see, I'd make the argument for "short hair is harder for babies to grab and yank" on the whole growing it out vs kids roll thing. :)

My hair has never been *anywhere near* that long. I can't imagine. Oi!

My mom used to call me Rapunzel. :) My first actual haircut was at 7 when my dad was helping me comb it and I was crying it hurt. He walks away, then I hear 'Snip.Snip.Snip.' and 'There, Missy. Your knots are on the floor.' I cried! And mom came home, told me I looked pretty and to go outside and play. Then she proceeded to rip dad a new one. :) Heeheehee... I'll never let him live that down.

And yeah, shorter maybe harder for kids to grab, but it takes less work ifyou don't wash it. When I wake up now with short hair, i have bed head and not in a good way...
