our old pal frostbeard stopped in yesterday, but he cut off his beard and looks like a fresh. but he’s not a fresh, he’s a grown man. anyway, he just returned from abroad, and totally serious, he had to come home because he was accused of being a sorcerer and was days if not hours away from getting, uh, tested. i accused matt of being a sorcerer last year when he brought in all those awesome toys, because everyone knows that sorcerer = awesome toys.
this is yesterday’s register. i got in the habit of writing down little stuff about each customer, but mostly it only ever says “a nice lady” or “cool dude” or “street dad” or “dressed like susan b anthony” or “dry wit”.
hey EAB, what time is it?

when my grandmother was in the hospital and they had to move her from room to room, she would put on huge novelty sunglasses just like these, and turn it into a parade. someone donated this pair, and my mother was in the store, so here she is modeling. now you know what my mother looks like, so you can see her in the supermarket and say “you’re famous! let me buy you a nissan sentra!” or something.
it’s the ass-end of winter, some would say the toughest part. here’s some summer haircut pics to make you insane, from danzig day:

another entry in the carnival mirror category, this fine number was made in-shop to commemorate the LA punk band the germs (”GI” stands for “germs incognito”). there’s a movie coming out about the germs, and they even “reunited”, with the actor playing darby crash (the lead singer) as the lead singer. this sucks, but the actual band still rules.
the lady in the mirror pictured here is kickball katy. hi, katy!
