Anyone else need a haircut?
I just finished cutting Zodiak's hair. It must have taken a lot out of him, because he went upstairs to take a nap. So, I'm sitting here bored if anyone else needs a haircut.

*Disclaimer: I am not a professional, so if I screw it up, you have to wear it like that. :rofl:

1. LOL! I need a trim!

And it's so curly, you couldn't screw it up if you tried! :D

:hi:

:hug:

3. Trims are easy!
I can do that no problem. It's when it gets into tapering that I screw up have challenges. :rofl:

:hi:

How goes the talk preparation? :hug:

5. I will be sure to compliment ZI on his haircut

next time i see him! :rofl:

Prep is going OK... i am having intermittent freak-outs :( I just feel like there are so many things to remember! I am actually less worried about the talk itself, and more worried about all the meetings. I am reading everything i can about academic interviews, trying to head off total curveball questions, but i'm still worried! :scared:

Today's lovely weather helped a bit -- i spent the morning doing yardwork, which was good for clearing out my head! :)

Hope you guys have had a great day! :hug:

10. You mean you didn't take the kids to the p-a-r-k?
We've had the windows open and I'm wearing shorts. My legs are neon white! :rofl:

I am sure that you are going to do a great job! You're a smart and funny woman, and I think any university would be lucky to have you.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you, as is Zodiak. He said he really hopes that it's everything you want, and that they offer it to you.

:hug:

15. Aww, thanks sweetie

I'm sure I'll be fine once I get there -- the problem with me is always the nerves beforehand! Same with talks -- right beforehand I'm super nervous, but fine once i get going.

We didn't take the boys to the you-know-where -- they wore themselves out running around the yard while we cleaned. Simon is very helpful at deconstructing piles of sticks, LOL. They also got to go for a couple rides today, which is very exciting in puppyworld! :rofl:

I wish it were that easy for Zodiak.

9. Sure sure.
Money saved is one reason he has me cut it, but the main reason it that he doesn't like strange women running their hands through his hair. So, I get stuck doing. And he doesn't care what it looks like, he's just happy that I cut it.

I love how silly he can be sometimes.

If I had hair.

13. Got one yesterday, thanks.
Your prices might be better, but there's that travel expense...

16. My prices are the best!
FREE!

I can't cover travel expenses, though. Maybe you could do a corporate tax write off. Those are so popular these days!

17. Almost everything is cheaper than going to the doctor these days.
And Weldon Barber has to be better than a Flowbee.

I have to use hot rollers to make mine look that cute.

Can you hack it down to something reasonable?

23. So funny.
I told my wife I had to have it cut today. She usually cuts mine, because she doesn't like it when the stylists butcher it. I told her, if not today, I was going to cut it myself. That made it happen.

I only get 2 to 4 haircuts a year.

I guess she has as much faith in your skills as the stylists.

27. Much, much less.
One night I came home drunk and decided it was time. I pulled it back and chopped it. I looked like a mangey goo-goo doll. She was laughing at me, and I said, "I'll deal with this in the morning" and went to bed.

I am not allowed to cut my hair anymore. :)

28. Actually, I could use one.
My hair looks rather like a mushroom today. Must be the humidity. I ended up taking the scissors to my own head using my computer's webcam as a mirror. Unfortunately, that turns everything backwards, which made it quite the exercise in dexterity. :P

Don't worry. I'm used to er...non-professionals. :yoiks:

30. Oh, my.
You should have videoed the hair cut and posted it to YouTube. That would be viral by now. :rofl:

and

Hey!! I resemble that remark. :P

It actually looks OK. I've got so much hair it doesn't really make a difference. :P

40. I had a friend do that once.
She had the shortest bangs I've ever seen in my life! Be careful.
