Well Sirfurryanimal, I used to live on Mt. Baker in Washington State, which meant I had to drive 35 miles to get a haircut...no patience for that...so I would just cut it myself!
And so I have been doing that now, too...people kinda choke as they tell me how nice it looks...but hey,
"I do not mind it
for I are behind it,
the people in front get the jar!"
