I got a haircut.

And unlike the haircuts that I've had three or four times a year for the last decade, I got them all cut.

The ponytail went first. 20 seconds with some scissors took off 10 years of history. I've been carrying it around in a ziploc bag like it's my kidney for the last hour. Luckily, I had 10", so I can donate it to Locks of Love. Hopefully some child with cancer will like it as much as I have.

I wanted to go with a haircut like Goran Visnjic has, but unfortunately because of the undercuts and the donation, I didn't have enough to work with.

So, here we go. Make sure the children have left the room.

I'd rather say "was" instead of "is" :smile:
(Not that it was that bad before, either, but your new look is definitely an improvement!)

Va va voom! Wow! Sexy! I've always preferred the short-haired, clean-cut look. You look like a totally different person (in a good way)! :approve:

First of all Enigma, good job donating to Locks of Love. Worthwhile cause. My wife has done that also.

I think you look good with the shorter hair.

Oooh, Enigma, you look great!!! :!!) :!!)

That's so nice of you to donate your hair, I don't think enough people are aware they can do that and it's such a good cause.

You should start smoking. If you hurry and get cancer maybe you can get your hair back. 10 years of your life, you hair's been with you through every moment. Now it's all gone. Sad isn't it. lol just messing with you.

ps is your last name Barnum or Bailey? What's with the circus tent walls?

That's okay Gokul, I still have flowing hair like that, and even thicker! I don't like guys to have longer hair than I have. :biggrin:

My condolensces!

Is this one of those - "it's time to get a job, so I better look the part?". You're too young for a mid-life crisis. :biggrin:

I had relatively long hair a few years ago, just above my shoulders. A senior manager at one of my company's major clients of expressed dissatisfaction. One of the managers in my company then hinted that it would very nice if I got a haircut. I agreed - no big deal.

Fortunately, he didn't ask me to shave. :biggrin:

The beard (this generation) is almost 24 yrs old. It gets an occassional trim and a shampoo every day.

do you ever hang your head upside down over the side of the bed and put sunglasses on your chin and pretend you are Don King?

That's MR CLEAN to you. And he would kick Don King's ass, so bring it.

Actually, no. This was a "I've had the same damn haircut since I was 17" situations.
I broke up with the girlfriend who liked the long hair.
I haven't really liked it much (not that I like this one much better) for the past year or four.
I finally got it to a 10" ponytail (usually have it about 2" shorter) so I could donate it.
I needed a haircut.
My friend (whose house has the Barnum & Baileys walls, Trib) wasn't going to let me weasel out of it.

Now, let's hope that the chicks will swoon and throw themselves at me. :yuck:

I'm sure at least a few will throw up and swoon when they see you.
Is your friend a clown? Never take hair style advise from a clown.

So, no different than before, huh? Disheartening.

What'cha got against clowns? Are you a clownophobe? They are people, too you know. They have feelings. :frown:

Do you mind if I throw myself at you before I swoon? That way you can catch me...I really hate swooning and coming too with a big lump on my head. :rofl: I can include some oatmeal raisin cookies in my next baking adventure. (We should just wait until tribdog isn't looking.)

I guess Tribdog is worried about competition.

It seems the PF Sisterhood approve. Evo gave you a double :!!)


I tried a ponytail, but my hair is so dense it just didn't work. So I usually wore a bandana tied around it.

Well give it a few months to grow out.
