Rapunzel's Lament

My new haircut makes me look like the love child of Harpo Marx and Minnie Mouse.

MWAAA hahaha! I've had a few of those haircuts in the past, too. But I was *fat* on top of it. No matter how it was cut, I'd still end up looking like Shelly Winters.

Awesome! Do you know how many deranged teenagers would BEG for a haircut like that?

nick said...

Can't quite picture it. You mean shaggy and smooth at the same time?

Only the freak flag has changed and not the "freak" underneath. A flag change doesn't mean the flag still ain't snappy in the wind.

EsLocura said...

sounds fabulous ... well not really but am trying to be nice.

Molly said...

Well, if you're as cute as Minnie and as funny as Harpo [and we have reason to believe you are both!] what's to fret about? Besides, hair grows. There are also some lovely hats out there....or, you could go a step further and get a Shiobhan do!

Mickey is heartbroken.

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

I'm very sure that you are quite lovely, however it came out, and remember, it will grow.


Much love, bella.

I suspect you look wonderful and I would love to see it.

TechnoBabe said...

I'm trying to picture the new hair cut, frizzy? big ears? big hair?

I always thought Shelley Winters was very attractive, and a good actress.


Deranged says it all.


No. It curls when it's short, which is ok, but it also pouffs out like mouse ears, which is not.


If I am a freak, it has nothing to do with my hair but as always, I appreciate your support.


Nice try.


Yes, we'll always have hats. I'm going to leave Siobhan's style to her, however.


My parents hope that in time he'll heal and forgive them.

Thanks for coming by.


I can see that you have this move down.


I will leave you to your suspicions because nothing I can say will change your mind.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Not frizzy, nor do I have big ears. My strong-willed, wavy hair bulges at the sides when short. It also grows much faster than average, being extremely entropy-minded, so it will soon be long again. And happier.

Hi, Hearts. That comment about Mickey was mine. It was a lapse on my side to use my real name.

Jameil said...

harpo mouse or minnie marx? i'd choose the latter. lol

heartinsanfrancisco said...


The comment sounded like you but I followed the link and got a "profile not available" page, so I decided that someone was impersonating my squirrel friend.


Don't you be talkin' stink about my mama now.

Jocelyn said...

Oh, babes, hold your hand in front of your face and take a pic for us, woncha?

Which is, um, not to say I want direct evidence so I can laugh at you. I, er, em, uh, want to assure you it's not that bad.

Btw, re: your comment about how things could be worse at our house: AMEN, DARLIN'. Our problems all arise from living in the middle of a horn of plenty.

Which is a really weird mixed metaphor when I think about it.

On a limb with Claudia said...

I bet your hair is gorgeous! How could it not be?

Pictorial evidence required, please :)

Liam said...

I have all kinds of images going through my head... and I don't even know what you look like.

secret agent woman said...

The thought of it has me giggling. A few months ago I accdentally colored my hair way too dark and my son said I looked goth. Needless to say, I've been working on geting it lighter ever since.

Maria said...

I am lucky to finally have a decent hair cutter. It took me over 40 years to find her, though.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Have I mentioned how I love it when you and all the other popular girls point and snicker at me on the playground?


Yeah. What she said.


I already did. See post. A little imagination required.


It's true. You don't. I'm secretive like that.

Agent Goth,

I don't color my hair. Haircuts are traumatic enough - I couldn't handle that, too.

But um, could I see a picture of your tats and piercings?


I've had some doozies over the years. This haircut isn't actually that bad; my hair just likes to be long.

Jo said...

Oh, Gawd. I can relate. When I was ten years old, my mother's best friend gave me a perm. 'Nuff said.

Oh, you poor thing ... I can relate.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


My mother adored Shirley Temple and when I was eight, she hauled me off to her "beauty parlor" where they cut my long, wavy hair and attached me to a medieval machine on a tall stand with metal rods, any one of which could have electrocuted me.

The result of this perm gave me the appearance of a dandelion at the white, pouffy fluff stage. Shirley Temple, rot in hell.

Jo said...

Ha! I was in Brownies at the time. Do they have Brownies in the States? Anyway, I had to go on a Brownie outing and I had to wear my Brownie hat. You should have seen it perched on top of my head, with my frizzy hair and my ears sticking out. I was a sight! I remember trying to pull my hat down as far as it would go. Oh, the humiliation.

Oh, goodness, what our parents do to us. :-)

heartinsanfrancisco said...


We do have Brownies here, and I was one at the time, too. The hat couldn't save me either.

A few years later, my best friend, who was a redhead, and I poured a bottle of Mercurochrome on my blond hair so we could both be redheads. It turned shocking pink and my father hacked it off - no beauty parlor this time - so short I looked like a little boy in drag. Speak of humiliation.
