Hmm.

I decided, as I was going to London, to have an expensive haircut.

They took off a bit more than I wanted.

I now look like quite a sensible lesbian.

Still, at least they found the inner me.

Photo, photo! I demand a photo. Unless of course, this induces another hissy fit, then I retract my request. Did the goatee make it intact? *wibbles*

*opps, for 'goatee' read superb manly beard*

If you've had a haircut and at the end of it you look "sensible" all you can do is reflect that it could have been worse.

I had a lesbian haircut once. I didn't know what lesbians were back then but I found out soon enough.

I think you need some hair jewellery (sparkly clips, beads, glittery things etc...) then you will look quite like a funky sensible lesbian and all the other inner lesbians will fall at your funky feet

Terri Nixon said...

Hah! I just noticed your "I was looking for a blog" quote up there, and it quite took my mind off the need for pictorial evidence for a minute.
I said for a minute.

Button said...

I shall join the gathering hordes chanting "photo, photo, photo".

Imo said...

There are "sensible lesbians"!?!

Button said...

also, I'm intrigued. May I ask what would be considered an 'expensive' haircut in London?

Spinsterella said...

Are you also wearing comfortable shoes?

richard said...

I think you're just scared of another inexplicable "get your hair cut" outburst from me.
Incidentally I had a haircut too and shaved off my temporary beard. I no longer look like a Swiss murderer, but rather more like quite a tired English teacher who tries to be nice but secretly wants to slaughter his colleagues.

James, you have always looked like a sensible lesbian.

Did you know that Mary Jane is slang both for shoes and lesbians[1], so you could have a Mary Jane in sensible Mary Janes. Wonderful thing the English Language.

i thought "mary jane" was a slang word for marijuana.

perhaps not.

Sal said...

I think the picture that Richard posted resembles [Sir] Ben Kingsley - now he doesn't look like a sensible lesbian now does he?

Billy said...

"i thought "mary jane" was a slang word for marijuana."

sensible lesbians don't get stoned. only wild and unruly ones.

patroclus said...

If only I had a camera I could provide the necessary pictorial evidence, but as it is, Richard's will have to suffice.

It's about time James started suffering like the rest of us. Having unsatisfactory hair is the sign of a quality blogger, after all.

Aimee said...

Ooh Patroclus, I now fear you may have been being facetious when commenting on my blog about paying out vast amounts of cash for a fabulous haircut. And I thought I'd finally found some backup to justify spending my overdraft on attaining beautiful hair.

James, even if you hadn't had your hair cut in London and had tried closer to home, you said Falmouth's local hairdressers is a Toni & Guy. So I would surmise that you were pretty much destined to have lesbian hair either way. Toni & Guy might have left some of the length, but it'd still look a bit dykey.

photo! photo! photo!

Nicole said...

The sensible lesbian that I work with got a haircut yesterday, too: I was wondering why it looked so much more like a writer's expensive haircut than her usual sensible lesbian one....

Photo photo photo, etc.

Jayne said...

All you need is some lippy and a pair of spike heels and voila - transformed into a lipstick lesbian! Better surely?

woot said...

I love a good band wagon

*chants*

Photo, photo, photo etc...

Jayne said...

PS Any news on the dog/knickers situation? Enquiring minds need to know...

dizzi said...

"Enquiring Minds need to know"? Is that not a quote from Sister Act 2?

*slinks away in shame at knowing quotes from Sister Act 2*

*slinks back*

PHOTO! PHOTO! PHOTO!!

*and is gone once again*

It's starting to resemble 'shades' in here. Ahh.. the internet of the 80s...

Why is no one around when I'm pissed & want to talk?

Hamilton's Brain said...

dizzi1 - It's also a quote from Lost Boys, which is far more respectable. I think it's from an American anti-drugs campaign, but don't quote me.

Button said...

ah! Lost Boys, of course. I knew that I knew it.

Terri Nixon said...

Ooh, my inner pedant has merged with my not-so-inner anorak and is dying to tell you that the quote is in fact: "Are you freebasing? Enquiring minds wanna know."

*sigh of relief* Thank God that's off my chest ...

patroclus said...

Not so fast, Terri - is that the Frog brothers?

Button said...

Corey Feldman, yes? and the other Corey?

Heather said...

Corey Haim?

Button said...

ah ha!
That's the one.

Hamilton's Brain said...

Edgar and Alan Frog, of which only one was a Corey. I could never remember which was which, but that didn't stop me.

Ahem.

"My own brother! A s___-sucking vampire!"

Gross misunderstanding of vampirism, that.

Button said...

googled.
Corey Feldman = Edgar Frog
Jamison Newlander = Alan Frog

Corey Haim = Sam Emerson (the brother)

You wouldn't think I had a proper job to be doing would you?

Hamilton's Brain said...

Love is with your brother...

The OST was in the charts for about thirty years, wasn't it?

Anonymous said...

Do you think they dropped Poe Frog at the development stage?

POE said...

Someone call me?
Hmm, I may have to think about adopting 'frog' as my surname.

Terri Nixon said...

Yep, the quote was from Sam to Michael - "you need sunglasses to talk on the phone?"

Sorry for hijacking your blog, James!

(but I just want to add, the bit that comes after your bit, Hamilton's Brain, "You wait til Mom hears about this, buddy!" is possibly the funniest line in the entire film.)

Maud said...

I'm sure it's been said, but you tease! Pictures are positively demanded.

Lynsey said...

What defines a sensible lesbian haircut? I didn't know they existed and am now scared I may inadvertently have one. It would explain the lack of boyfriend.

Also, the Lost Boys is my all time favourite film and I got very excited by the quotage there. Does that make me very or just a bit sad. Ho hum

Jayne said...

Good lord, I go away for a couple of hours and a whole Lost Boys thread is spawned from my post. Sorry James! Not that I don't love the movie (great soundtrack too). To be pedantic, I think the Frog Bros were also quoting - "enquiring minds need to know" was, I believe, the tag line on gossip articles in scurrilous US mags in the 50's. National Enquirer and all that. Could be wrong though.

patroclus said...

Haircut update: I wouldn't say so much 'sensible lesbian' as 'Take That-era Robbie Williams'. Err, here's a picture to help you visualise it.

*runs away quickly*

Jayne said...

Heh! It's going to cost you a fortune in hair product James!

woot said...

Does James have the cheeky grin too?
