Hair Today, Long Tomorrow!

Look at my hair:


It has gotten big. And it's untidy. And it's messy. And that's very similar in meaning to the word untidy so probably didn't need to be said. I would like to do something with it (and as I listen carefully I can hear the distant sound of my mother whooping joyfully). The trouble is I don't know what to do with it. This is how my hair cycle currently works:

1) Get hair cropped short.

2) Grow hair long.

3) Don't know what to do with hair other than...

4) Get hair cropped short.

5) Grow hair long.

6) Don't know what to do with hair other than...

7) Get hair cropped short.

8) Grow hair long.

9) Am chastised by members of my corps for not having short and well kept hair in keeping with the traditions of the Salvation Army.

10) Shave hair off completely by way of protest.

11) Realise that doing exactly what they want you to do is a crap form of protest.

12) Grow hair long.

13) Don't know what to do with hair other than...

And so on and so forth (lather, rinse, repeat).

The thing is, I quite like it long. I just don't like it messy. And I certainly don't want to crop it.

So what do I do? I don't even know what my options are.

Firstly, get some cards made up that simply say. 'You're a Muppet' for handing out to anyone who questions your 'keeping of traditions'. Look at the size of Booth's facial appendage. You should buy one of those hairdressers magazines(the kind with dozens of pics), they are very good at highlighting (no pun intended) what to do and also what not to do.

Glyn, Glyn, Glyn - long hair in the Salvation Army is so 2006...

Glynman, far be it from me to give out hairdressing advice, but just do whatever you want to do. Keep it long but get it tidied up (it's a do-what-I-say-not-what-I-do moment).

And Booth's beautiful beardage surely dispels the myth that there is no place in the Army for crazy hair.

More of it, I say!

Oh I remember the days when Andy used to comment on my blog... ;)

Funnily enough, Mitch, I was reading yours today thinking 'I can identify with that' but didn't really want to highlight that fact as I already get enough stick for the fact I'm on the verge of turning 30...

And Neighbours isn't really my thing. Nor, for that matter, are exercise bikes. Sorry!

Stand up to the fascists!

If memory serves me correct, Jesus had a pretty crazy hair-do too!

And all the old testament dudes had big beards, which would probably raise an eyebrow if you worked in Mcdonalds, let alone in church!
