Shameless Plug

I think that I have at least five people interested in being a part of a Ukulele Sunday Uke Circle. I would appreciate any helpful suggestions from my audience as to how to make it a success. Howlin' Hobbit suggested that funny hats and beer were crucial. Donita Curioso said that she could bring her dumbek and a few funny hats. I think the Howlin Hobbit meant fun hats, as in fedoras, porkpies, and bowlers-the kind I wear to cover my bald spot. I think that Donita Curioso meant party hats-the kind with mouse ear, pointy tops, or propellers. Let me know if I'm wrong, folk.

Oh, yeah. Feel free to read the post below.

I suppose "fun hats" would work, but I really did mean "funny hats". In fact, the turds site (in the about section where they announce their meetings and such) they say:

"Please bring your instrument along and wear a ridiculous hat to prevent the more complex chords and melodies from escaping."

... so it's really ridiculous hats, not just funny ones.

But the beer is, of course, the essential part.

BTW... I hide my bald spots by shaving my head.

JEFF! DO NOT SHAVE YOUR HEAD!!!! Howl, stop giving him ideas!

I have the mother of rediculous hats. I took a mariachi sombrero and embellished the hell out of it. It features a fringe made of rubber goldfish, glitter butterflies, a pile of satin Christmas balls and some electrified roses at the back. It was my New Year's hat from 2001. Uncomfortable as hell, tho. But I'll wear it for the good of the group.

Hats and headdresses are my costuming specialty. The problem is I'd have to dig into the Halloween stuff to get at them and you know what an involved process that would be. Guess I'll have to make something new.

Hmm, maybe I should shave my head.... Hmm....

I used to have an almost shaved head. A friend who worked out of his kitchen: Snips Kitchen of Beauty. Snip snipped my hair to 1/4 of an inch. On purpose.

Oh, those were the days.

It was actually Snip's Kitchen of Beauty and Wisdom. As for Viv's potato head doo, we used to tell people that her hair was that short so you could see the tattoo of the Last Supper on her dome. People would actually try to look.
I had a head shave twice. Both times for an Annie production. If you shave your head for union productions, you can usually weasel more money out of 'em.

Well, you have a nice, Audrey Hepburn kind of head and can carry off something like that. I could never attempt it. I'd look like the dyke-iest dyke in dykedom.

Jim occasionally brings up the idea of shaving his head (as you can see). I think he does this to annoy me. Or maybe to scare me, I dunno.

There is no shame in having a bald spot. Just don't do the comb over thing. Major ew.

Jim said...

I only do it to annoy...

This is what annoys me: If your hair is thinning, what is it that people EXPECT you to do? Come your existing hair AWAY from the bald spot? Just leave what hair you have a sloppy mess? Dreadlocks? Cornrows? Of course you have to come it in SOME direction. And. no matter what direction you comb it, it will be a comb-over. In fact, if you have a full head of hair, you have a comb-over. That's what the natural end result of all combing is. Sheesh!

Howling Hobbit has it right.

Donita said...

Ok, first let me say that my last post was a response to Virginia's post, not Bill's. Bill doesn't have an Audrey Hepburn head.

The kind of comb over I'm talking about it is the kind where the part is one inch above the ear and 4 strands of hair are attempting to cover the dome. Not sexy.

I think it's best to just get a decent haircut, comb it normal and let the bald spot be. I don't think you have to hide it. But you should do what pleases you.

Sheesh yourself.

I have an Audrey Hepburn neck.

And I'll bet it's delicious.
