New Thing #67: My new haircut/new look.

My hair was getting wily.

Really wily.

Just so, so wily.

Mangy. Out of control.

So I fucking got rid of all of it!

Or, most of it.

This is the shortest my hair has ever been. (Aside from the few times I've shaved my head--but I don't count those times because both times I shaved my head, I did it for plays I was acting in. This is the shortest I've ever actually cut my hair just for myself.)

Rock on.

So good.

I think this is your new look.

christy said...

Jesse, you have to say "FIRST!"

Erik said...

Jesse, it's nice, right? I've been wanting to buzz for a while.

Erik said...

Oh, and yeah, Jesse, listen to Christy.

christy said...

I dig the new look!! Though I do have a weakness for mop-tops.

But this way it looks far less likely that things are alive in your hair.

Erik said...

Christy, it didn't just LOOK like things were alive in my hair...things were alive in my hair.

christy said...

I don't even want to think about it...I mean look at MY hair...

I saw this consumer report once that says 97% of all people have this kind of bug that lives in their scalp.

There are so many things I don't want to think about.

Erik said...

Your Kristen Davis, Christy, you don't have any living things in your hair.

christy said...

Oh good, thank god.

Jessica said...

I dig the new look - rock on indeed! It looks soft - do lightly rub your hand over it as you think? I would.
I wish I could shave my head sometimes...but I have a big lump on the back of my head. Dr. said she could get rid of it, but there would be needles involved and I'm not in the elective surgery echelon of health insurance. But I love a close cut - means there's no hiding...seems very direct.

As Kirk Wilson would say "HHHHHHHHOT."

Mrs. Kickass said...

I just realized you have many Jessicas and Jesses in your life...well this is Jessica Hanna. Oh I know what I'll be
...that last post was from me too. ;)

Bonnie said...

Okay, you buggy-headed people. You're creeping me out.

And yay for the buzzcut! Love it!

Erik said...

Jessica! (Mrs. Kick-ass!) Thank you for the compliments about my new 'do. I would totally support you if you shaved your head, big bump and all. I think women with shaved heads are super hot.

Erik said...

Bonnie, sorry about all of the bug talk.

Erik said...

Did everyone notice how I said "your Kristen Davis," when I meant "you're Kristen Davis"?

Carrie Bradshaw totally would have made fun of me.

The Only Jesse said...

I'm not an Erhead! I take pride in being last.

Anonymous said...

Jesse,
You're not last anymore. Christy, now you can compete for either first or last. Isn't that exciting?

Question: Doesn't anyone who reads Erik's blog ever sleep?

Erik, love the buzz.
PAM

christy said...

I did notice, Erik. I thought it was charming. Same way I thought it was charming when you said "grammer". Just like I am truly in love with the phrase "almost hit me/you by a car", and I love that everyone is spelling masturbation with an "e".

Carrie Bradshaw I am not.

My boobs are way smaller and much more proportional to my body.

And I am so in love with my new blog! I just went out and took a bunch of pictures for my next one! I just keep thinking about all the things I want to blog and it makes me so happy.

christy said...

And PAM,

It will be so hard to compete for last, because you have to be so sneaky about it. Like if I said "LAST!" someone would just immediately post after me and say "No, I'm LAST."

Dave said...

I'm not trying to be last, but couldn't let this string go by without saying how dashing I think you look Erik.

Very very nice!!

soleclaw said...

I too am a fan of the new 'do! It's definately a keeper.

Erik said...

Okay, I love that people are now competing for last. I love it because you all know I am such a comment whore and the fact that "last" is kind of a completely unattainable position to hold. Or, actually, it's imminently attainable, but incredibly hard to maintain because any dirtbag (and when I say dirtbag, I mean me) could just add another comment after you and then they're fucking "last."

Which basically just means that if people are trying to get "last" comment on my posts, I get more and more comments and I'm a happy boy.

Erik said...

Christy, I've always had a hard time spelling the word masterbation...
masturbation...(?)
mastirbation...(?)

I guess there are some things that are more difficult to spell than they are to do.

And no, Christy, you're not Carrie Bradshaw. You're (did you notice the correct grammer!) (-ar) probably more Samantha aren't you. I mean, even though you look like Kristen Davis IRL, I can't say that you're Charlotte because

(a) I'm Charlotte
and
(b) Charlotte would never name her blog wildinbed.blogspot.com

Though I love that you did.

Erik said...

Dave, thank you! I'm not sure that I've ever been called "dashing." Or if I have, it's been a really long time. (And I've never been called dashing in print.) (I guess this isn't really "in print," is it? I should have prolly said "online.")

(Am I the only one who thinks we should get rid of the word "probably" because it's archaic and has too many syllables and we should replace it with the word "prolly"?)

(Prolly.)

Erik said...

Thank you Nichole (soleclaw)!

You know, I just realized...I've always wondered what "soleclaw" means, but I've never asked you. I wonder if you will ever read this comment thread again and see that I asked you that question. I should ask you on your blog where you are certain to see it, and I will.

christy said...

it's coleslaw with the letters reversed.

christy said...

but I don't really know what "coleslaw" means.

christy said...

and you mean *you* did (named my blog).

I'm so not Samantha. At all. I talk about sex WAY more than I actually have it.

I'm most like Carrie, only I have smaller boobs and don't care about grammer/ar. I tend to fall for arrogant jackasses.

But you're right, I'm not Charlotte. You're Charlotte. A gay, Jewish Charlotte.

I'm really Dale Cooper.

(I've never even seen Twin Peaks!)

(I even thought of writing a blog about it to convince you to let me BORROW Twin Peaks)

(But then I was afraid you wouldn't love me anymore if I admitted I'd never seen it)

(And then I figured maybe I should just ask you to borrow Twin Peaks, that I was being "histrionic" aka over-dramatic)

Bonnie said...

It's just another word for mayonnaise.

Erik said...

Hey Bonnie, I just found out that Christy has never seen Twin Peaks before and I decided I'm not going to be her friend anymore.

Coleslaw is more than just mayonaise. There's lettuce-ish stuff in there too!

Bonnie said...

Pff. That's just a formality.

It's like chicken salad, shrimp salad, tuna salad, egg salad... it's all mayonnaise.

Especially if you grew up in the south.

Bonnie said...

Oh, and you have to still be friends with Babes McPhee even though she hasn't seen "Twin Peaks."

We can't all have everything.

Erik said...

Oh, I'll be friends with her again (in about five minutes), I just wanted her to sweat it out a little bit because she admitted to being histrionic.

Bonnie said...

Okay, I totally can't comment with y'all 'til I finish my column.

For reals.

I must be good.

Rent's due, y'know.

christy said...

PHEW. I wasn't sweating it out so much because I admitted to being histrionic but because I outed you to my religious-ass mom.

Erik said...

FINSIH YOUR COLUMN, BonBon! Um, "finish" it, too.

christy said...

But mostly FINSIH it, BonBon McSomething.

Erik said...

I'm glad you outed me to your RAM. Your RAM needs to know more GAMs. (That's supposed to stand for Gay-Ass Men. Not Gay Ass-Men. Gay-Ass Men.)

Erik said...

After that last comment, I can just sense all of the google hits I'm going to start getting!

Erik said...

Yes, FINSIH it!

christy said...

I'm glad, too, Erik. She totally needs to know more GAM. She's so such an amazingly awesome, fabulous, entirely different person when she forgets for a minute that she is married to my dad and teaches sunday school.

The weird part is, my dad is a kick ass awesome guy too he just hides it all behind a religious, Dick Cheney republican exterior (ewww).

My parents kick ass. Although okay, my dad *is* homophobic. But he had a bad experience as a youth. I don't really think its at all fair to hate anyone because people usually react rationally their experiences (he was broke and adorable and 18 and didn't have a place to stay and a guy who took him in tried to lay him). And he *is* pro-choice, but he also was born to a 17-year-old and he really believes that if she could have afforded an abortion he wouldn't have been born. You just can't judge anyone, no matter how Republican they are.

And what about Gay-Ass-Men. When the hyphens are all around, you just don't know for sure about anything.

christy said...

I meant rationally *to their* experiences.

christy said...

and I meant *pro-life* he is *pro-life*

I blame the syrah, entirely.

christy said...

I don't think my mom will read the comments on your blog.

Bonnie said...

Okay, I just came back to tell y'all that I FINSIHED my column!

Signed,
BonBon McSomething

Bonnie said...

BTW, how did your hairstylist react to your photojournaling? Did you tell him/her it was for your blog and give out the URL and all that cool stuff?

Just wondering how deep your blog addiction lies. ;)

Gina said...

HOT FUCKING SEXY BITCH! Wanna make out?

christy said...

Erik, I somehow missed this comment before but I have ALWAYS pronounced/spelled "prolly" like that.

When I see other people write "prolly" I feel a little bit plagiarized.

Erik said...

What about BonBon McBonBon?

Erik said...

Gina, we should totally make out for old times sake. Matt wouldn't mind, would he?

Erik said...

Christy, your parents just MIGHT read my comments...you never know. My mom reads yours!

Erik said...

Bonnie, I wish I had told my haircutter to read my blog, but I didn't. I SHOULD HAVE. That would have reflected my obsessive nature. But I'm always disoriented when I'm getting a haircut because they make me take my glasses off.

Erik said...

If that makes any sense.

Erik said...

Hopefully it does, but it prolly doesn't.

christy said...

I think I like "Bon McBonBon" better.

Like, "Bon. Mc-Bon-Bon (rest, rest) Bon. Mc-Bon-Bon-Bonnnnn."

Bonnie said...

That was cool, Babes.

Now... can you do my nickname to the tune of "The Theme from Knight Rider"?

christy said...

Bon-bon-bon-bon, bon-bon-bon-bon...bon-bon-bon-bon-Mc-Bonnn(bon).

Bonnie said...

Bitchin'.
