well..

It’s happened.  After greasing up my face last night to help with the erbitux rash, I ran the extra through my hair to do a little hair sculpture!  It was the perfect length.  I got a real bobo the clown look going.  But then noticed that my hands had come away furry.  Oh damn.  I grabbed a chunk and pulled.  Out it came.  This morning when I tested it, it gave even less resistance.  Oh well.  So I took it off.  No sense in waiting for it to become a nuisance..  hair on the pillow, etc.

Besides.  I really LIKE being bald.  I think it feels great.  When I’m not on chemo, my hair is so bloody thick that I really don’t have much excuse to take it off..  I mean, if it were thinning, I’d say ‘to hell with it’ and shave it off..  But it’s NOT.  At ALL.  It’s like a make up brush!  So for me, this is really one of the big upsides to getting chemo.  I get to be bald for a while.  Love it.

  1. On the plus side, your face looks a lot better now AND you look like you’re from the future. Always look on the bright side of life, brother!

  2. Been bald for a long time, but sometimes I dream I can feel the wind blowing through my hair. Enjoy it while it lasts, but I bet really feeling the wind blow through your hair will be nice, too.

  3. I agree with everyone else — bald looks great on you!! and I’m so glad that this is a change that you like

  6. Ya so right. Bald is being more aware. Ya feel things. Like a sixth sense. Enjoy the new dew, I do. Have a very Merry Christmas and an Amazing New Year.
    Peace, Love, Joy and Laughter.

  7. Hi,
    A Merry Christmas from the biking town of Copenhagen, Denmark. I don’t know you, but I have followed your blog and looked at your beautiful bikes since I myself was down for open heart surgery earlier this year.
    I wish you all the best for your body, mind and family!

    Picture: As you can see we still commute on bike here even with lots of snow.
    I changed to winter tires on my ’92 mountainbike last week.
