going gracefully

last night as i was looking in the mirror, it occurred to me that my hair won’t be here forever.  every haircut that i get from here on out could be my last (not really but in the interest of being dramatic i’ll say that).  my hair has been with me for 30 years now.  it’s shown no signs of going anywhere until a couple of months ago.  i don’t know if i’m super paranoid because i’m 30 or if it’s really receding at the pace i think it is.  either way it’s on my mind.

i’ve had a receding hairline for as long as i can remember.  in grade school, a good friend of mine was kind of enough to tell me about it.  i went home and asked my mom what he meant.  ever since then i’ve been slightly self conscious about my hair but in all honesty it still seems thick enough to sustain a couple of more years.

so yesterday evening as i pulled my hair back and gave my hairline a good look, i started thinking about those celebrities we see on a regular basis that have had receding hairlines and have gone about it the right way.  it’s encouraging for me to look at a heath ledger or a jude law and know that women still think these dudes are good looking.  if their hair can go gracefully, then why can’t mine.

new warby parker frames for 2011

fresh from my inbox: warby parker has released some new frames for 2011.  you can see the rest at their website.  if you don’t know the deal with warby parker, here’s the skinny: they make vintage inspired frames for $95 and for every pair they sell they give a pair to someone in need.  why wouldn’t you buy glasses from them?  i’ve made it all the way through the ordering process twice but don’t know my pupilary distance and have been too lazy to go get it measured.  i’m gonna do it this week.
