For all things Tooks, and some things, er, relating to other people. As well as to other things. You get the picture.

A Hairy Retrospective

I'm gonna catch some serious flak for this one, but I gotta do it. As many of you know, we have this iMac, which has made of me a convert through its nifty bells and supercool whistles. One of which has captivated many a visitor to our home, namely the Photo Booth feature, which lets you snap snapshots using the integrated camera (at the top of monitor) and timer, complete which clicky sound and fake flash. But nobody is as captivated with this toy as the beautiful woman I live with, who uses the Booth to document and catalogue the vagaries of her various configurations and combinations. Of hair. Each visit to the salon engenders a lengthy photo-session involving myriad angles, poses, and lighting arrangements. Needless to say, all this is a rich fount for affectionate heckling from yours so very truly.

Which brings us to the present. Let's accompany a beautiful woman on a very personal journey.

In the beginning, there was what I call the Long and Lovely. Imported straight from the mean streets of Bogota, Colombia, by way of McAllen, TX.

Next, we come to the Shorter and Sweeter, circa Fall 2007--a heady time of love, loss, and learning.

A detour through Halloween/Hollywood brings us the Ugly Caty, which makes bad look pretty darn good.

And now, the present: The team is still laboring on the nameology, but the working title is the Sassy Lassie. The tagline: "Business or pleasure--what's the difference?"

SO there you have it. It's been a wild ride, I know--I wouldn't be surprised if some of your hairs were blown back in the process. But you stuck it through, and now you know: Technology is a tool that can be used for good or ill. And beautiful women can make you do bad things.

Admire those changing locks with me,
