Outside my comfort zone.

I said I was going to do something outside of my comfort zone this year, and I've decided that shaving my head, while something i've always wanted to do, definitely falls outside the COMFORT ZONE. So today I did it. I signed up.

On March 18th, at Larkin's On the River downtown, I will have my head shaved! EEEP! It's kind of scary, but exciting. I'm really excited about doing something for charity. I don't have great hair, I don't love it and it has been in pretty bad shape for awhile, so really, it's a great excuse to just Start Over.

So, few friends who frequent this blog, if you have a couple dollars spare, I would appreciate it from the bottom of my blogger's heart. Enjoy the warm fuzzies that donating will provide your heart with, and I will look forward to feeling the wind whip across my badly head.

I've Been Watching Things:

We stayed with a friend who has Netflix, which made me want I've been watching things again. Hooray! I haven't been in much of a mood to watch anything, but it's such a SHINY NEW TOY. So here's what we've been watching:

Babies came out awhile ago, and it has been on my To Watch list for ages. I loved it, and more importantly Oz loved it. There are no subtitles, no narration, just babies being babies all over the world. It was a little cringe-worthy watching the American parents being complete idiots (I mean come on, you can't read "How to be the best parent you can be!!!" or some such nonsense with your baby sitting right there playing! PLAY WITH THE BABY!!!). I thought a European family featured would have been nice too.

Then we found Stephen Fry's America in the instant queue and added that one. I watched this when it originally aired in the UK, and to my friends reading with Netflix, if you get the chance, it really is a nice watch. I adore Stephen Fry. This is one of my "happy go-to" things to watch. It made me nostalgic for our road trip (and yeah, I need to post some more from that! ha!)

And lastly, we watched something incredibly cheesy. George Romero's Monkey Shines. Wow. Awesome 80s Horror. Hilariously, wonderfully bad.
