Today was fun. I got my first London haircut and its totally punk-rock. Its buzzed about 3/4 of the way up, and then the top layers are hanging over above it. Its one of those haircuts that you have to be committed to, but I am very happy with it. It reminds me of an early 90′s skater cut.
The haircut took almost all the money I had in my wallet. It was way more than I am used to paying in the U.S. But since I didn’t have the kids with me I took the opportunity to stop in the local music store and check it out, and more specifically see if they had the latest Mummers cd “Mink Hollow Road.”
I have checked other music stores in London and not had any luck, but somehow hadn’t looked in my local one yet!
When “Mink Hollow Road” came out months ago I of course wanted to buy it right away, but it wasn’t available in the U.S. and it was more than I wanted to spend to import it. Plus by then we were already well aware that we might have the opportunity to buy it in the U.K. if we moved here this summer.
The cd was there, and since its a 6 track EP, it was just 5 pounds. I felt just like I did when I was in college (or “at University” ) as I looked through my wallet and found that if I counted out all my change I had just enough for the cd. I was totally grinning while I handed over my coins for a new cd and walked home rocking the new hair cut.
