Fear Factor

It's another beautiful day in Hamburg. Scout and I took a nice walk, I did a little shopping at the drug store, and I faced down one of my deepest fears...

My hair.

My bangs have grown out of control. I have thick hair that grows quickly, which is nice if you're looking for thick hair that grows quickly, but when you've left your favorite stylist back in San Jose, it can be problematic. Jennifer gave me a great cut that has allowed the rest of my hair to grow out gracefully, but not much can be done for my bangs. When they grew long enough to go over the top of my glasses, it's time for action.

So I had a decision to make. Do I face my fear of German and get it done by a professional? Or do I face my fear of the scissors and do it myself? Well, in the end, German won out as the greater fear, so this morning I took to the bathroom with scissors in hand.

I have to say I did a pretty good job. I cut very conservatively and ended up with a straight blunt cut. None of that pixie look that Jennifer gives me, but at least it's not hanging over my glasses anymore.

In other news, one of Kevin's American co-workers is here in Hamburg for the week. We're planning on meeting up with him tonight and going to the Dom. That should be fun.
