By sony_b on Ask a Fancy Person: Occasionless Gifts, Chemo Baldness at the Office, The "Thanks For the Birthday Wishes" Anomie

I went through chemo last summer and chose to stay bald the entire time - including at the office and at corporate conferences I attended. Going in I knew I wouldn't do a wig, I didn't even bother buying one. I did try scarves but I was always fussing with them and was never comfortable. Big lipstick, big earrings. I never had a stranger make a comment in 7 months. Be comfortable! I noticed that people were much more comfortable around me when I was bald than when I was futzing with the stupid scarves - they could tell it bugged me, and it bugged them in turn.

Also, for more casual occasions where I wanted to keep my head warmer I really liked Buffs (planetbuff dot com).

When Husband and I first heard this song we both thought it was hilariously similar to the "Ras Trent" bit by Lonely Island. Picturing Andy Samberg yelling "Rastafarianism!" really makes "Rude" more tolerable. www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcK0MYgnHjo

I'm actually going to patent my own yoga outfits. I bet nobody else has ever thought of wearing to their yoga session a once-white-now-grey Gap tshirt with some slightly baggy-at-the-knee running leggings which got repurposed when I stopped running. They are very particular to me, being soggy with sweat and rather larger than the average yoga outfit. I am going to patent them right now and the sue the downward doggy arse off of anyone I see wearing anything similar next week.

What does it mean to "hail men"? Is it like hailing a taxi? If I walk out to the curb, raise my arm and yell "Man!", will a man pull up and give me a piggy-back ride to my house when I'm drunk?

Got a job. It even approximates being a 'real' job.
