Shiny hair.

Years ago someone told me that if you washed your hair with cold water you'd have shiny hair.

So I showered and washed my hair in cold water.

And my hair shined.

It was the 1970s and my hair was very long.

And shiny.

But the showers were cold.

Hair was shiny.

Cold hair.

But shiny.

And this went on for a couple of years.

I dreaded the cold shower.

But I had shiny hair.

And then one day I woke up and thought to myself:

'Why the heck do I want shiny hair anyhow?'

I had no answer.

So I took a hot shower. A wonderful hair dulling hot shower!


There is no moral to this story.


There is nothing to sum up.


The point is that cold water makes your hair shiny.


Hot showers>cold showers

Me and the Hoag are getting stood up tonight by the Blonde...seems she'd rather listen to the future leader of the free world give his speech than listen to me and dull-haired Hoag talk about cold showers.

Or something.

Obama is speaking tonight. Not McCain.

Did you just concede the 2008 presidential race to the Democrats?

I'd vote for Obama over McCain.

Though the thought of Biden as President sends shivers up (down?) my spine.

As I told someone today, I don't agree with Obama policy. I do think the country needs his pizzazz.

For four years anyhow...

When I was with the Howling Commandoes, McCain was someone we referred to as a 'chowderhead'

That's chowdah! Chowdah!!!

"I do think the country needs his pizzazz."

I totally misread this as "I do think the country needs his pizza."

Now I'm hungry.

"Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos" -- a reprint of the orgin issue -- was the comic that got me into collecting comics, which I did for a solid decade-plus.

Ended up selling 'em at fire-sale prices when I moved out on my own.

To this day I miss my full run of "Plop!", as well as various other absolutely no-value items.
