Quick, cover the smell with some skunk spray!

(Also, this is why electric burners suck. A gas stove would have at least had the courtesy to set you on fire.)

Exactly how much hair loss was involved?

Are you going to look strange when I come to visit?

Ohhh, I have a story... at an old barn I used to board my horse at, they had these OLD fans with huge, unprotected blades. I was looking into a stall that had one of these fans attached to the front of it (to cool off the horses), admiring a little foal. At the time I had really long hair... before I knew what the hell was going on, the fan grabbed my hair and reeled my head in. I must have been a sight. Thankfully, it stopped before my head was chopped to pieces, but I was literally attached to the fan. I didn't know what else to do, so I yelled for the owner of the barn, hoping he was nearby. He came strolling down the aisle, and he and his barn help (whom I had a huge crush on, btw) both took one look at me and busted up.

So, he cut my hair off () and I ended up with this little 3-inch chunk of hair on the side of my head. It wasn't really noticeable unless I pointed it out, but it bugged the hell out of me for weeks.

This is the smell you missed by not going to the cattle branding. It's karma.

Why were you cooking your hair in the first place?

I was honestly thinking of it but Britney did it first and I didn't want to follow her suit.

Just the ends are burned but it's enough that there was good damage. I'm going to have to get my hair cut.

When did Siu become a lunch lady? Besides, she was making dinner, correct?

Sinead is awesome. Britney is not. Siu is closer to the Sinead end of the spectrum, in my opinion.

Agreed. If she were on the Britney end, the world would be a worse place.
