Haircuts and Nonsense

A mixed bag today.

Firstly: There are three types of people in this world, not two, as previously thought. Thank you.

Secondly, I recently got a haircut, and I noticed an interesting social phenomenon. People say “nice haircut” as a replacement for “I want you to know that I am aware that your hair is notably shorter than it was in the recent past,” because the latter sounds stupid and isn’t a compliment. Not that I’m self-conscious about my looks, but I’d like someone to come up to me, peer at my now-lighter cranium, and say, quite nonchalantly, “Don’t worry – it’ll grow in, I’m sure.” I would really believe a future compliment from that person, wouldn’t you?

And lastly, I had an…interesting day today. Read more about it here: in the posting from today (11/30) and the first comment following it.
