I looked for the registered sex offender sign up sheet…

So tonight I went to the mall for a long overdue haircut. I’ve been desperately needing a haircut for a while, and I really wanted to get one before Sunday (yesterday), but it just wasn’t happening. Apparently, Andi (my haircutter/stylist/whatever the hell) decided it was in her best interest to move to another location. So instead of working less than a mile away from my home, she now works like a half hour away from me. The nerve. What about my interests, Andi? (I still haven’t forgiven her for the time she decided to lay down with a man and went out for months because of her newborn.)

Andi has apparently moved to a more upscale/trendy haircutting establishment (no, you don’t get the name, it’s horrible and yes, I understand it’s a mall, but it was pretty nice. They had coffee for you, should you want it), the price of my haircut went up. I was paying about $25 (including tip, which I do decently because she is good) when she worked at the old joint, but tonight it ran me $35 ($25 for cut, plus $10 tip). However, the price increase was completely worth it because I now get my hair washed after I get it cut. At the old place, hair washing was extra, so I would usually just shower before I went, and skip the extra duckets, but here, it’s built in into the price, so I might as well partake since I’m paying for it. Holy cow, I forgot how good it feels to have someone scrubbing down the noggin. I damn near fell asleep.

Since I had arrived 20 minutes early, I hit FYE and lucked out by not spending *any* coin. After the cut, I styled and profiled my way over to Footlocker for some shoelaces, but they didn’t have the ones I wanted, so I went to Kid’s Footlocker (and how is it I can go into a foofoo store like Bath & Body Works and buy foofoo soap with no problems — except walking out with that stupid ass foofoo bag — but the moment I stepped into Kids Footlocker I looked for the registered sex offender sign up sheet?). I went into Spencer and was saddened a little by the fact I saw NOTHING I wanted, a surefire sign I’m growing up. Ironically, though, I did buy something at the store next door…Hot Topic.

I have a love/hate relationship with Hot Topic. I hate the fact that they make their money selling vintage T-Shirts, the vintage part being shirts of TV shows I grew up with. But I love that they always have the coolest Chuks/Vans/skater shoes (and although I don’t skate, I still love the shoes) in the mall. I also love the looks I get when I walk in from both the clientelle and staff when I go in. I almost feel like they are whispering amongst themselves, “What’s the old guy doing here?” even though I’m only 36. I also love their clearance racks, because they price shit to move.

I headed straight to the back of the store, and was pleased to find a clearance on shoes. Sadly, the only Chuks they had were pink (and I don’t do pink), but I did dig up a snazzy pair of Vision Street Wear shoes, and I saw on Hot Topic’s site there are black ones on sale, too, so I may hit the mall closer to me sometime this week.

Yeah, bring on the Hot Topic hate, I deserve it.

(And no, Fnord, I don’t buy my shirts there anymore. I haven’t in years. They don’t sell Hawaiian shirts there. Those are way too colorful for that store.)

That’s a lot of coin to trip your hair. I pay $15 plus tip and I get a shampoo too. Going to a dog groomer is where it’s at.

I love our shoes ::Sighs Wistfully::

I had no idea you could get them at Hot Topic though =P. Next years line is about to come out as well, and we’re definitely digging the styles. We have some new skate shoes and boots, and the like.

Anyways, Enjoy them!

Your blog sucks balls because I didn’t read the instructions and lost my whole reply. 😡

Anyway, I used to love Vision shoes. I haven’t worn a pair in like 18 years though. The last pair I had were high tops that sort of looked like these:comment image but slightly different.

I need new sneakers and I only buy skate shoes, maybe I will give Vision a try again. My DCs are ratty as hell.

I will not go to Hot Topic to get them though. 😛

I pay $70 for my hair, $120 if I get it coloured. Guys have it easy. Even when I had short, short hair the price didn’t go down. >:( >:(

Those are nice shoes!

Hey, watch it bitch. And speaking of shoes, I just found sneakers at Walmart for $18! I had to buy them. They’re like a novelty item or something.

$35 for a haircut? You are fucking insane. I bought a set of Wahl clippers for £20 (about $40*) five years ago and get my wife to shear me.

Real men have buzz cuts. :ninja:

*I was going to do the usual £20 = $3000 but it would’ve kinda undermined my point.

Snooze, ZOMG WOW. I go about every 2 – 3 weeks. I would weep over paying that much every coupla weeks. And the shoes are way comfy. I just ordered a black pair.

aric, were they Badidas? Treebok?

DJ, it was nice when I was bald. Haircuts were the price of a pack of razors every few weeks. 🙁

The shoes increased your manhood ten-fold.
