Then I remembered I have a reason to be scruffy next Friday:
The Big Lebowski! Cinco de Lebowski at the Bagdad Theater and Pub, Friday, May 7th, to be more exact. It'll be (as usual for Cort and Fatboy's Midnight Movies) $3 to enter. The doors will open at 8:30 (p.m., you jackasses!), with live bands (The Troublemakers and Lord's Own Choir) starting at 9:30 and the movie starting at 11. You have to be 21 or older, 'cause of beer. And White Russians.
I'd had enough presence of mind to re-grow my Van Dyke well in advance of this upcoming momentous date, but the rest of my hair? WAS THREATENED WITH CHOPPING. Wrong time. This follicle-directed aggression will not stand, man.
Thus I shall be at least poofy-haired (if not necessarily scruffy; I will be working that day) come May 7th. I'm sure you're relieved.
