Hair Today Gone Tomorrow


All Gone

So I've gone and done it! With 2 weeks of holiday ahead of me last night I shaved my head.

As I said below, I've always wanted to do this, just once, to see what I would look like.

It's actually very hard to shave your head. I started with the clippers and went down to a number 1 all over (via a Mr T style mohawk of course) and then I used my razor to do the rest. Unlike your face, the top of your head is very boney and dome shaped. This means that when you shave you just remove a thin strip of hair. It's also easy to cut yourself.

Still, all done now. It's a very strange feeling to have no hair for the first time. It feels very sensitive to heat, moisture etc. I have to admit that I can't stop touching it.

I went running this morning and it felt great to have lots of excess heat escape from my head. It was also nice to feel the wind as well.

So, I think my head shaving experiment is a total success. I have seen what I look like bald and I am enjoying the experience.

I'm now interested to see how long it takes to grow back, and if it grows at the same rate and my facial hair. I'll keep you informed.

Alice has lost her first tooth!! It has been wobbly for ages and now finally it fell out. Apparently she thought it was a grape when it came out. er, OK.

Anyway, she looks very cute with her gap and is looking forward to a visit from the tooth fairy tonight. I think 20p should do it.

Good news. Bryan Fuller is a TV genius. It's just a pity that the TV execs keep cancelling his shows.

I'm particularly interested in this as The Lotus Caves was my favourite book as a small boy. I still have my copy. I may have to read it again.

Who Loves Ya Baby?

For the past 6 weeks or so I have had much less hair than I used to have. I have always had thick hair with more curls in it than a slinky and I just got a bit sick of it so I shaved it all off. Well, not all of it but most of it.

I love my new hair. It requires no effort to look after and I think it looks much better. I have also bought a hair trimmer so I don't even need to go to the hairdressers any longer. This is a good thing as I can't believe how quickly hair grows when it is very short! I'd be spending a fortune.

So, I was looking in the mirror the other day and thought, "I wonder what I would look like totally bald?". The more I think about it the more I want to know. It's become an obsession! I don't want to be totally bald forever, just shave my head completely once to see what it looks like.

Now, starting next week I have the best part of 2 weeks off work. As I said above, hair grows very quickly when it is very short and I think I could shave it at the beginning of my holiday and it would be mostly back to where it is at the moment in a couple of weeks.

The question is, should I do it? I'm thinking yes but opinions would be welcome. :-)

Donington back in action Planet F1 Formula One News

Good news!

There was a chance that Donnington would be lost along with it's exceptional F1 museum. Thankfully it seems to be back on track (pardon the pun).

It's just a pity it's simulating a Ferrari and not a Mclaren. :-)
