To All The Doubters


There have been those who have not quite believed that I shaved my head, and kept it that way for a long time. Well, here is your evidence. This is not just any photo, this is a photo that was recently sent to me by Terri Sheridan, Librarian and Archive Collection Specialist at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. This is a vintage photo taken in 1997 during our Shell-a-bration summer exhibition. At the time, I was working at Shellrassic Park, the dig pit where kids dug up shell fragments and matched them to whole shells on an identification board. So this is official and legitimate; notice the name badge with the maiden name and the cheesy teenage grin (I was 18 then, but kept my head shaved well into my 21st year). I shaved my head. And the Florida heat doesn't much dissuade me from doing it again.

P.S. Anyone who knew me then can please feel free to back this story up in the comments section. And if you shaved your head with me, maybe it's time for a post on your blog about it! (I'm talking to you, Leigh...)

I've been waiting for this!!

Michele Villano recently emailed me her shaved head picture. That just leaves Chantel Walker (and anyone else who has yet to come forward)...

By the way - You can definately pull it off

That is not at all what I pictured but you do look super adorable! I have wanted to see this forever and I love it. I thought you would kind of look tough, but you really just look kind of tender.

Thanks for sharing.

I have to admit, there was one short minute when I thought this was a current picture and that you had once more shaved your head. I was very excited about it. Just think - you could have matching family haircuts!

For a moment, I thought you'd done it again!

We've been telling folks for years how cute your shaved head look was. If you want to do it again, I think you'd still look great!

Am I mistaken, or was there a brief moment post-mission when you had that all shaved. Seemed like that was the case...I seem to remember a conversation about Annie Lennox

Such a cute picture! Just adorable...I TOTALLY remember that hair. It was fun to touch. Did you dye it blue once or am I thinking of someone else?
