I hope never to enter the basement again - in December I'll have MoBob dig out the Christmas stuff. Of course now the apartment's a mess, but that's a lot more manageable than descending into the Fourth Circle of Hell.*
I'm a little disappointed with yesterday's haircut at the Graham Webb Academy upon recommendation from washingtondc. It was OK, just not short enough - I couldn't tell the length with my hair wet and of course the student stylist was cautious as well. The lady next to me was a much more serious case. She had cocker-spaniel hair: chunks of blonde, caramel, and black on a short pixie cut. While I'd brought my copy of What You Wear Can Change Your Life with a photo of a round-faced woman with a cute hairstyle, she brought a laptop with before and after photos, with crisp, precise instructions. I hope she left a big tip.
