An hour and a shower later



Pirates of the Caribbean, London-style...

Feeling better already.

Shows off your blue, blue eyes, too. Not sure if you want to hear it right now, but you do look nice with the scarf.

When my aunt lost her hair during chemo, she wore a wig to work (at the time, she was a corporate lawyer), but scarves and turbans the rest of the time. She didn't just go around bare-headed, but that was the early 80's, pre-Britney, Sinead, Demi, or Natalie Portman.

Thank you!

I'd forgotten about Natalie Portman. Trouble is, they are all so damn PETITE. I'm 5 ft 9 and a few dress sizes larger. Which although I did get plenty of complements about the scarf when worn with my dress and sandals for work yesterday, when i then chucked on my biker gear and waddled down the street carrying my helment under one arm, swathed in cordura and sporting that scarf, it suddenly made me feel a little butch to say the least...

I'm still resisting the wig thing. Altho I admit it would make work meetings with 'outsiders' easier. Happily, I know most of my colleagues well enough to whip off the scarf and show them my bald patch without much self-consciousness. It's a small, intimate place where we love and hate eachother like some warped extended family. Which is sort of comforting at times like this...

I think the scarf looks cool. How about a combination of the scarf and the wig and sunglasses? You could be snotty and pretend you're a disguised celebrity.
