Subject: [personal|photos] First post-chemo haircut, and a radio play

Right after work, I went and got my first post-chemo haircut. We threw some color on as well...

It's a clunky cut because I'm in the first stages of the multi-year process of growing my hair back out. (Assuming further chemo doesn't derail me somewhere along the way.) Still, it was fun.

After that, the_child and I went up to the McMenamin's Kennedy School to have dinner with T— and J—. Post-prandially the four of us attended the Willamette Radio Workshop's production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, presented (and recorded) as a radio play. Standing room only, and unfortunately for us, we were among the SROs, but it was a lot of fun.

Later, I have the alarm set to see if we can get a look at the lunar eclipse. Doubtful given the cloud cover, but around here anything is possible.

That's a great haircut and pair of photos.

I don't think I can really explain why I think so, but you look younger, happier and healthier to me. (I don't think the younger bit is due to the colour, FWIW.)

Thank you, Joe. I have 100x more energy than when you saw me in September, for one thing... :)

I was wondering if that was all it was. Either way, congrats, great hair. (Now write more Sunspin please! :P I hadn't noticed until your recent post that "To Raise a Mutiny Betwixt Yourselves" was yours - it was my favourite from The New Space Opera 2. Much respect!)

In fact, the novella I just finished drafting also concerns the Before Michaela Cannon, from "Mutiny"... So, yes, working on that.

We're currently arguing about whether you look more like Crosby (Crosby, Nash, Stills & Young) or Parker Stevenson as the older Hardy Boy.

Either way - you look good :>

Agreed. Bald Jay looks like a Bond villain.

Pity you can't leave the Bond villain there, for the maniacal laughter part...

Oooooh, baby, very GQ! This looks great . . . I'm not entirely sure about the sideburns (smiles).

The out of focus background looks like the bridge of the Enterprise. Where do you get your hair cut, anyway? (Phasers on "layered look.")

Excellent look. Quite rakish. I like it. What I like best, though? That sparkle in your eye is back.

I generally prefer long hair, but you look really hot with this style. It draws more attention to your eyes, and the sideburns and goatee make you look a little devilish while flattering the cheekbones.

You've got Hair! And it looks great.
Yeah, in a few years it will be long and all over the place as usual.
