Progress report on my awesome 'do. I've got about an inch and change of growth since the buzz down. The curls are coming in really tight, yet still distinct - soft, wispy curls along the temples, thick twists cover the rest. There's still the weird patch of hair that grows longer than the rest of … Continue reading Keepin’ It Short
Hair like wool, eyes like fire, feet like burnished bronze…
I've gotta do something about all this hair! Ohh, how cute, a dark-hued person and a light-hued person mated and made a cappuccino cutie! Yeah?, well, these cappuccino cuties grow up with really fucked up hair!!! No, no, it's not that bad. Genes are a helluva thing, though. My indigenous heritage wants to grow thick and long.

Wordless Wednesday: The Contender
Dead Man’s Locker
What happens to the machine when the human abandons it? Behold, the personal computer. A Packard Bell desktop, to be precise, with all the whiz-bangs the end of the 20th century allotted: 100 megahertz Intel processor, 1 gigabyte SCSI drive, a floppy and a CD drive, and, the creme-de-la-creme, a 28.8 bits per second dial … Continue reading Dead Man’s Locker
Sometimes I Graffiti Cats on Buses
Visiting the NOMAD art bus during the Florida Bookstore Day after party. The non-profit organization visits disenfranchised neighborhoods to provide creative activities otherwise nonexistent for residents. Please visit their Page and support art for all!
All summer long, my naturally curly tresses stayed in various forms of braid. Not only is this a way to combat Florida's famous humidity, but a natural means to encourage growth. Results: three full inches of new growth, softer kink, and even layers! Why heap pounds of hair onto your scalp when you can suck … Continue reading Swept Aside
