Kinda okay with it. A bit disappointed to find out that I have a relatively even skull, and have no 666 tattoos or anything of the sort. No horns, no nothing. What a rip-off.

Also, this. Ladies (and gents), steady yourselves.

I like your mohawk. Hair or no hair, you're still weird looking.
Love.

Tori said...

The mohawk weirdly suits you.

Sorry to hear about the lack of 666 tattoos.

Wendy said...

I will leave another mohawk comment. Mohawk equals sex. Yessiree.

Kate: Oh, you tease, but I got your mushy christmas card today ;) You are ever so sweet.

Tori and Wendy: I'm really regretting shaving it off, now :p I may consider it as a possible hairstyle once the hair starts growing back ... in May...

Deborah: Thank you so much. I'm so very glad I was able to bring about some levity. Also, we have a shared interest. Check out my other blog, if you'd be so inclined. http://blackriderstudios.blogspot.com

I will most certainly email you. Please, by all means, email me if you'd so wish. armand.munteanu@gmail.com

Holly: Thank you for the message, the love and the cyber hugs! Here's a thought: if we're all part of this club, do we get a secret handshake? I mean, I guess we DO get matching haircuts, but you know... ;)

dear armand, i LOVE your photography website! you have such a fascinating eye - especially your macros. i think your "Day 8 self-portrait" is quite powerful. since you salivate over pinholes, you will like my friend erin malone's online quarterly journal "Without Lenses."

Deborah: Thanks for the links! I love Without Lenses -- so many ideas!! I also love your photos! I know I'm a bit macabre, but I think the cemetery shots are wonderful. I'll email you about nerdy camera talk...

Hi Cancer Boy,
I wan Cancer Girl in 1972. I was about a year younger than you and had Hodgkin's. It looks better in the rear view mirror!
Go! Fight! Win!

dear Cancer Boy....yes, the look alike hairdo's tell everyone that we are in the same club...the club that NOONE wants to join. but here we are and what the hell..we go through it. i am proud of you. you are doing everything just right for yourself. keep blogging - i wish i had started it when i got diagnosed..but i didn't...then again, i am an old woman - old enough to be your mom - you go Cancer boy!!

Oh Armand... I love you and your fancy hair. :0)

Also the hat Mel is making for you is friggen awesome...

Armand said...

Robin: Thank you for your kind words. It's so good to hear that others have come out well, through this bloody obscure cancer.

Holly: It's good for you. Here's me being a smartass youngster, then -- Psychological research suggests that talk therapy, also in the form of journalling, etc., is extremely beneficial ;) I wanted to say "Blog like there's no tomorrow!"... Then it hit me as a rather inappropriate thing to say... Then I sort of had to chuckle... Nothing like one's own mortality to bring about some laughter.

Enigmatic anonymous poster: Hair ain't so fancy no mo'... But yes, I do look forward to the hat, indeed! Yay cancerhat!
