Cowart's Common Room
Marmelade Lark

Well if this isn't the wettest and most depressing, grey, soggy, dull afternoon, then I don't know what is. I have just had my hair cut, struggling through the rain, and I look now quite shorn, though maybe younger and more business like. I have always liked having long hair but age is catching up with me and the smartness level is shorter than it was. Never mind it will grow again and will be comfortably once more over my ears come the January frosts for it grows very quickly does my hair. In the meantime it is an excuse for a long, fluffy and flamboyant scarf.

I wonder if everyone's hair grows at the same rate? Or is the rate of growth a function of something or other like alcohol consumption? And do hair and nails grow together at the same pace? I think my toe nails grow more slowly than my finger nails which do grow quite quickly and I have the impression that they grow more quickly now than before. All this shows that we have a remarkable lack of knowledge and curiosity about out own bodies. Or at least I do about mine. I have heard that your hair and nails go on growing after you are dead so that if you are embalmed and on display, the hairdresser and chiropodist have to call every few weeks to give you a trim.

Perhaps the answer is Marmelade - just as the answer to the universe was 42 and a half - or something like it - for I never got on with the book - indeed I don't get on with science fiction at all - unless it is Blake's Seven or 'Quatermass.'

So here is the marmelade pot on which I spent so much money. Out of the studio it seems quite an ordinary pot without even a knobble to its lid or a hole for the spoon handle. I suppose it might do for sugar
lumps. Did you know that sugar lumps in France are cylindrical, like horse pills? Not so much lump as 'comprime.' Anyway here, especially for Bradan, is the pot.Very HappyVery HappyUploaded Image

Fairy Nuff's Avatar What a lovely pot Fennie, whatever you put in it.

My friend and I both had short hair at the beginning of 5th year when we both decided to start growing it long again, by the time we left school 2 years later mine was at my waist and her's only just reached her shoulders and no more... and mine had been trimmed regularly to keep the bottom tidy, hers hadn't been trimmed at all.

I understand the growing after you're dead is a myth, its just that your muscles relax and your hair and nails protrude more. Just a s well, can you imagine cemeteries full of mounds of uncut hair! Laughing
