To Mohawk, or not to Mohawk


So, at least half of you will hate this idea, or so I believe.

I am planning to cut off all my hair on the 12th as you have read.

After the public hair cut I have to have it styled. The original plan was to shave my head anyway, but for fun get a mohawk. My high school reunion for the classes of the 1980's here in Dundas is less than a month after chemo starts so theoretically I will have some hair left by then. What better way to rebel against cancer than an aggressive haircut? What better way to rebel against any good girl image anyone may still have of me?
But truly, I have always wanted to be 'Storm' from the Uncanny Xmen in the 80's-NO not the heinous Halle Berry version (yes she is hot, but Storm she is not!) I had a Storm costume for the 'Chateau' Halloween party at Middlebury College in 1986( maybe '85) and I stood in the girls dorm washroom shaving the sides of my head much to the chagrin of the preppy white girls. I left the top of my Robert Smith like hair sticking up as high as I could hairspray it.

This is how I hope it will be next week.

Where the heck is Wolverine when you need him anyway?

I figure his admantium claws could remove cancer cells.

Noelle, I say "go for it!" I'm all for rebellion with hair - it will grow back!

I like it! You have weeks before the reunion to see if you want to keep it or not, but you should have one if you want it! Maybe an indigo blue mohawk? Janette

Noelle, you go girl but take it off take it all off. Shave your head, why should men be allowed to show their nakedness we should be allowed as well. You will be striking, as you head is a beautiful shape. Don't cover it up, let the whole world know that you are a fighter.
When you go to the reunion have an artistic friend paint a meaningful picture on your canvas and let it be you.
This is a tragic thing to happen but going through it will make you a stonger person.
Stronger, what is stronger than steel. You a diamond not in the rough but polished to a super shine.

See you on Saturday...
