Yes, I know, it is totally impractical, but look at it!
It is my birthday month.
I can have a bear ears cap if I want.
Also it was on sale through my birthday. That is totally a sign.
ps: no that is not me, that is the hat model, but if you are really lucky i might post photos after mine arrives in the post.
where you too can get that sassy bear ears cap:
that is from toppedhats on etsy

So this discussion is heating up over on FB about the Rapunzel hair and female law enforcement characters on TV thing and some people are saying, Oh well long hair is more attractive to men and whatnot.
I don’t think that is true but I could be deranged.
[It has been suggested from time to time I am deranged. Shut up.]
I think most men don’t care half as much about women’s hair as women care about women’s hair though.
I also think plenty of women are hot and sexy with short hair — and that’s not even taking into account you can go into combat WITH LONG HAIR, if, you know, you just do something to stash it out of the way so it’s not a combat hazard to you and others when you pull a gun out.
Let’s take a look at hot women with short hair just to be sure:
I’m female and don’t even do girls and I know they are totally hot you fools.
Maybe the whole Rapunzel cop chicks thing is Charlie’s Angel Syndrome.

What happens when you cross Peruvian Immigrant Chic with Betsy Ross, a bedazzler gun, and ill fitting white 80′s stirrup pants?
That is right, sports fans, Ralph Lauren’s 2014 US opening ceremony uniforms for the Winter Olympics.
Someone please call Tim Gunn.
I have heard some cries of, but have you seen Norway! Um, yes I have, and I will not even post a photo here one shockingly bad fashion shot is enough thank you but you can :::go see too if you must:::. Let me point out though, arm wrestling Norwegian curlers for worst dressed at the Olympic opening ceremonies is perhaps not the high bar to be reaching for here.
Let’s take a look at some of the better dressed future attendees of the Olympic ceremonies.
Go Netherlands! Wow, real clothes and a sense of elegance, look at the tie! Look a the plaid! Look at the vest! Nice.
Wait, too upscale for you? Want something more wintery?
Estonia is nice. Simple. Classic. Winterey. Also, cute dogs! Yay!
And then there are our northern neighbors —
I have heard word on the street is people were making fun of Canada saying the Canadian uniforms were “too plain.” Hello, people, after getting a glimpse of the USA and Norwegian outfits? Canada’s “plain” outfits may be the only thing standing between you and pattern induced seizure if you tune in to the ceremonies.

For ONE HUNDRED YEARS —
This guy has been pulling on his tatty little red outfit and showing up to spread joy and commerce and what did you leave him last year?
Cookies right? Maybe some milk?
This year leave cash.
And maybe a nice Men’s Warehouse gift certificate.
And whiskey. God dammit, he deserves whiskey!

Probably this is only hilarious to me. It is actually kind of a catastrophe but still hilarious to me.
[This may be because "catastrophes" historically for me involve brushes with death but I consider the "brushes with death" catastrophes mostly comedic too so my "catastrophe" meter is skewed.]
[Wait, back up, catastrophe therapy kickstarter project yay!]
Here is the new workshop shirt close up:
I wore that shirt at AFF. Other workshoppers wore that shirt at AFF.
Tell me if you see the problem.
Nobody did until today.
I am so cracked up.
*I’m sending out new shirts to everyone who bought the wrong shirt. Also I’m framing the wrong shirt.

There are only a few days left to pick up your free TNSSG bumper sticker with TNSSG swag purchases. How do you get that fabulous free bumper sticker, you might ask? Well you have to be a member of the TNSSG street team in Beyond Top Secret to find out.
We thought so. Hit that:

Into my salon today. I do this after pulling an all nighter and the only reason I am ambulatory is, it seemed like a good idea to drop off things going out shipping before falling into bed. Then it seemed like a good idea to make a hair appointment. Only the online hair appointment thingamajig went off on me. So I walk on over.
They know me there. So it’s no surprise to them I am stumbling in at a disgustingly early hour, barely dressed, saying, Say can we put this on the books?
What I am not expecting is, Oh yez, today, think you can make it back in five hours?
[Also they know where I live, they'll come roust me if I don't show. Ahhh!]
I say yes.
I will have very pretty roots later in the day.
