A not very timely note

This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.

"Hair Gel" by G.

I couldn't think of anything to write about, so I decided to just look around for some inspiration. And then I saw it. The most shiny metallic bottle of men's hair gel I had ever seen. I decided to take this bottle and give it a inspection. By god, it had walnuts in it. Am I interested in putting walnuts in my hair? Hey, many people put weirder things in their hair. Just take a look at a bottle of shampoo. It has like the coolest ingredients ever. Because I definitely want to put Hydroxyethylmonium in my hair. Anyways, back to the gel. I weighed it in my hand; it was almost completely full. I began to think, when did I actually use this gunk? I remembered faintly of some dance that possessed me to lather the clear stuff into my hair and concoct some mildly attractive hair style. Why... cause everyone else did it that's why! Yes I'm such a unique person. Or maybe I'm just "special"... I'm writing about hair gel..HAIR GEL. Not your mind. Not how you relate to water. Not how to control anger or something psychologically helpful like that. Oh no, I chose to yammer on about this monotone colored hair gel that was collecting dust on a table top. But don't you worry, dear reader, I will soon recover and resume the translation of my deepest thoughts; just for you of course. I'll recover from my temporary loss of amazing thought on the double, faster than Indiana Jones runs from that big rock that's always there in the treasure room.

Perhaps there is a lesson to be learned from hair gel. When I was young, I had a full head of lustrous gel-worthy hair. Today, not so much.

Could a certain zen-like meaning be involved in today's post?

Or maybe, it just was about hair gel. : )

It's good to blog about hair gels. I remember being 6 years old and not, for the love of me, understanding why my mother would punish me for eating her her gel - if it was not meant to be eaten, why on earth was it that sweet? I was appreciating it - after all, I'm sure hair was too dead a cell to taste it!

Cool blog :-P
