Speaking of hair... let's talk about growing out straight across, blunt bangs shall we? The process sucks my ever-loving will to live. I hate it. I try to push them over to the side and then I have this big chunk on the other side just hanging out being unruly. Twist them back with a bobby pin, you suggest? No. I look like a moron. In the 1st grade I woke up on picture day with the gum I had in my mouth stuck to a big chunk of hair right in the front by my face. My mom tried ice, peanut butter, Crisco.... every home remedy she could think of to get it out (and I had 3 younger brothers at the time, she didn't have time for all bullshit before school and work). So, she finally just ended up cutting the gum out. The cut resulted in a big, uneven chunk of really short hair just hanging out by my face. I had to wear my hair (pinned back, braided back, twisted back) in mini barrettes and ribbons for almost a year (shut it... it was 1985/6... ribbons were in). Clearly I have been scarred.
