The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
You don't see haircuts like that very much.
Perhaps the world would be a better place if we did Ren!
Your consistently good taste in music is in evidence in the last three posts as always, jams. And renegade eye is not the only one who misses that kind of haircut. My hair is rather ill-defined: the lady in my life likes it long, and so do I, but once in a while I have to change from the musician look to the businessman look for a short while. It's a small price to pay for being able to do most of my work from home.I hope your cracked rib is on the mend. Last year, something set me coughing for a few months; I didn't break a rib, but I can certainly appreciate what you're going through. Be well, my friend.
For me my hair gets cut every few months. Having Psoriasis can make even comblng the hair unpleasant at times.. I get the odd light hearted comment at work (the very occasional snide one gets me jumping down their throats!)The rib ispainful. I dont think I'l be getting uninterrupted sleep for a few days!
These guys all own stock in a black turtleneck factory. They outfit themselves in only black turtlenecks to ignite a fashion trend, and raise black turtleneck commodity prices.Their music played backwards reveal the messages of, "Buy More Black Turtlenecks." "You need more black turtlenecks.""Your neck is feeling very cold at this moment." "We get a group discount down at Lucky Ralph's Hair Chop Shop."
Ah their dark secret is out!
I get the odd light hearted comment at work (the very occasional snide one gets me jumping down their throats!) - jamsOh, you mean something like, "jams o donnell, why if you aren't a site for psoriasis!" Sorry; I couldn't resist. Only my regular use of a nasty-smelling shampoo keeps mine halfway in check, so I'm a fellow sufferer. And I've used that line about myself, usually to coworkers rude enough to make a remark to me about the problem. As to hair length, by now, my regular clients know better than to comment on my need for a haircut. I do cut it when I go for interviews, which is often enough because I am a contractor.I hope your rib recovers quickly. Meanwhile, if I remember correctly, the Irish have an excellent and tasty cure for pain-driven insomnia: it comes in a fifth bottle...
lol steve. Do you use the tar based stuff? THat is pretty foul! On the other hand for me I dont deal with the public so the dress code is not so strict.The cracked rib is not so painful,. Sadly I have pulled another muscle on the other side.. Arse! That bottle of the water of life sounds like a tempting prospect!
jams, I was not entirely truthful in my previous comment. For decades, I used the tar-based stuff, and it stinks to high heaven. More recently, I found a product I refer to as Blue Goo, that works about as well (or badly) and doesn't stink as much.I don't work with the public, but expectations in corporate America are sometimes pretty rigorous. At the beginning of a business relationship, I conform to those expectations; however, if the relationship is ongoing... and many are, because most clients like my work... I give them a taste of what I really look like, the look that Stella emphatically prefers.I learned of that "water of life" from my sainted father, and we didn't have much of it, because we weren't well-off and he wouldn't drink the cheap stuff. In your case, at the moment, it's whatever gets you through the night... again, I hope you can soon sleep well.
Had a wretched nights sleeps with my new muscle pull going into spasm with depressing frequency. To be honest the last thin I really want at the moment is alcohol!As for the scalp I find a shampoo with Salicykic Acid in works very well. One of teh Neutrogena T Gel range (used to be called T Sal)
a steroid based gel and plenty of baby oil! you had a cold & now your rib is cracked?
Got a steriod application too and I use oilatum too. Keeps the skin plaques away!I went from a cold to a chest infaction with a shit load of coughing... some violent coughing at the weekend ddid for the rib. I did for another muscle yesterday.. Arse!
My Mom told me about a cure for scalp flakes that I'm going to try this weekend. You warm up four tablespoons of olive oil in the microwave and then massage it into the scalp. Then, you put a shower cap over it and wait it out for about an hour before rinsing. You should try it jams, and then post some pictures on your blog for our amusement!
Hmm I will give it a go but perhaps I will draw the line at the picture! There aint that much left and what there is is going grey!
I bought this single in 1966. They were way ahead of their time.
I was three at the time.. It is still a damn good song though
