i do want to show you

my new haircut, but i haven't washed my hair now in a day or so, and so this isn't the best time to take it's picture! i took a shower last night before i went out to drink some green beer, and never got a chance to take one today. i will admit since then i've just been wetting it and applying product at times, and it's holding up pretty good. i imagine right now it smells a lot like chicken grease, but it doesn't actually look that different from when it's clean.

had to get up early this morning to go the doctor's, and found out a few troubling things. for one thing, i am a hunchback. to be clear, i have a buffalo hump. a few weeks ago i noticed this weird lump on the base of my neck and was like, no fucking way, i'm a HUNCHBACK. i mean, my neck and back hurts a lot because my bed it shitty and i work bending over a lot (insert sex joke here), but a hump is not in any way, shape, or form acceptable. the doctor was so nonchalant about it but i was pretty depressed. being compared to a buffalo at any point in time, for any reason, just doesn't make me feel too good. tomorrow morning i go in for a few blood tests to see what might be causing that as well as some other stuff.

what other stuff? he thinks my hair is thinning. hair thinning is right on my list of things i never want to happen to me, and so after being sucker punched with news of my buffalo fucking hump i'm also losing hair. they should give out razor blades or xanax with those kinds of diagnoses! shit man. being slightly hungover, unwashed and learning that it's not enough my hair is short now, but it's falling out, is not my idea of an awesome day. again, he's thinking some of the tests they'll do tomorrow will figure that shit out.

then to cap it all off, i got called into work on my day off. true, i could have said no, but we are down three people in the deli due to one broken foot, one case of mono and one staph infection, and what was i going to do today but cry about my hump and thinning hair? getting out of the house was good for me, even though now i kind of want to slink inside a hole and have some cocktails. dear diary, this week has sucked major ass. humps and hair and hangovers, oh my!

Thanks for the laugh today. That was good stuff. Sorry to laugh at your misfortune. :( Hope that things improve with the add'l testing!

BTW, how's your dad these days? Haven't heard much about him in your blogs. Hoping that's 'cause he's doing well and there's nothing to tell!! :)
