It's a very liberating sensation. But for those who have become accustomed to seeing me with long and curly hair, this must come as a shock. The summer was getting to me and my other reasons to keep my hair uncut have long since disappeared. And so has my hair.

After having survived countless threats by several (near & dear to me) to have it cut during my sleep, my current crop of hair has been reaped. I've come to realize how much of a hassle it had been. Except for the bright April sun beating down on my head or the newly acquired intimate knowledge of A/C vent locations in office, everything else seems to be going according to plan.

And after all, it'll grow back. It's not like this is the first time I've doen this.

Worry about your hair too much and soon you won't need to.

Conflict is the essence of drama. Conflict between people is easy enough to construct - the villain, the hero and the heroine. Put a face on each and the characters play themselves out. Evil shall rule, but it shall be short-lived. Good shall win at the end and order shall be restored.

But occasionally something comes along which distills drama out of nothing but circumstances. No evil, merely ordinary people, their thoughts and cognitive dissonances echoing off each other. That's how I felt at the end of watching Juno.

Unlike other movies I write about, I have no spoilers for this one. But the soundtrack haunts me. Definitely something to go back and listen to - not just for the melody, but for the lyrics.

You're such a good friend   
I haveta break your heart.  
Tell you that I love you    
then tear your world apart.

Listen - and hum along ... ~~ you're a part time lover and a full time friend ~~.

I thought drama was when actors cried.
But drama is when the audience cries.
