Well, I’ve got a busy couple of days coming, but it’ll all be for the best in the end. While my game didn’t arrive today, it should be showing up tomorrow, just in time for me to have other things that need to be done. =P But, in addition to that, I should be receiving, what I hope to be, very delicious pretzels in a quantity that is, quite frankly, ridiculous.
With active days coming again, I guess I should really try to hammer out that review. I know, writers block isn’t a great excuse, but it’s what I’ve got! =P I’ll see what I can do, and that’s the best I can promise you. =P
In more personal news, I need a haircut. Seems like a rather straightforward thing to need, but my circumstances have actually changed in regards to this. You see, my mom has been cutting my hair since… well, forever. I don’t believe I have ever gotten my hair cut by anyone else. But, with her in a wheelchair, and me just generally being large and rather inflexible, managing to make it so she can comfortably reach my hair is somewhat difficult. So, I find myself in need of a solution.
Now, in addition to my mom doing my hair since I was a pouchling (I love that term), I have actually had the same hairstyle since then too. I mean, it works on me, so why bother to change it? But, not really having an official “name” for my hairstyle makes it kind of hard to convey to a barber, especially since I know absolutely nothing about cutting hair. To make all of this even worse, nobody I know goes to a barber anywhere near here. I know someone who has his sister cut his hair, but she’s away at college, and another person I know goes to his aunt, who lives out of state, etc, etc, etc…
So, my options at this point are actually fairly open. I could go and pay about $15-$25 to get my haircut at someone I don’t know, and they might manage to do a good job, or I can take another option that has presented itself. Now, I’m not big on change, but let’s face it, if I have to try something new and possibly completely crazy, I might as well choose the most interesting option. What’s the most interesting option you ask? Buy some clippers and learn to cut my hair myself!
I know, it sounds downright crazy, but as it turns out, many people have managed to do it, and come up with some interesting hairstyles along the way. Granted, I could look really stupid by the time I’m done, but the same thing could happen from a visit to a barber I don’t know too. Then, of course, there’s the advantage of cost. Even if I screw up this time, it’s a one time cost of $40 for the clippers, which is just two visits to the barber, not a bad deal at all (and I’ll have until the day those clippers die to come up with a hairstyle that actually works).
I might be somewhat insane for trying it, but at the same time, I’ve never been much of a person to care about how I look, so worst case scenario I wander around for a month or two looking like an idiot. Course, and this could just be the fact that I’m tired and typing this up, it could end up working out very well, and I manage to solve my newly arrived hair problem on the first day, living happily ever after never having to worry about who is going to do my haircuts.
Yep, I must be tired. Alright, time for me to head off to bed, it’s late, and I’ve got stuff to do tomorrow. おやすみなさい！ =D
