I feel as if we demonize wax on this site a bit too much, so I righteously blog this blog to show my appreciation for all that wax has done for me.
1. Candles are awesome. The light they provide is not too intense, nor does it hum or produce electromagnetic pollution. They flicker making shadows playfully dance on the walls and ceilings. Most of them, smell pretty good, and if not, at least the molten puddle within is fun to play with. They are useful for lighting hemp-wick when you don't feel like sparking the lighter every time.
2. Crayons. Sure I've opted for acrylic and oil paints, but the nostalgia of a crayon cannot be surpassed.
3. Beeswax cylinders. The predecessor of vinyl records, beeswax cylinders were the first form of recorded music that went into production, allowing people to enjoy recorded music all over.
4. They use wax to seal cheese, I love cheese. Also wax helps you know if you've been accepted to Hogwarts before you even open the letter.
5. Rub it on your snowboard to make you go faster!!!! Skis are for chumps.
6. Earwax, it protects the skin of your ear canal, assists in cleaning and lubrication, and also provides some protection from bacteria, fungi, insects, and water. Other forms of wax, such as petroleum jelly have other lubricating purposes
7. Lava lamps. Made with wax, not lava.
8. Wax makes it easy to identify people in need of your dreading expertise.

Went for a nice long walk in the woods this morning, and went off the trail to look at something... Well, i forgot that my hair was down, and in my haste to get up the hill, got a chunk of it caught in a holly tree. The force of my step was so great that there was nothing I could do to stop the tree from ripping out a small section of hair (ouch).
When I went back down the hill, i stopped to see if there was evidence of my error on the tree, but none was to be found... I went home and noticed about 1/4 of a baby lock hanging down from a knot! And here I was questioning the general knottiness of the hairs... But it was such a good knot, I just cut off the excess 12" or so that was hanging down (the part that had ripped from my scalp!), and left the rest in there as a reminder to be more careful next time I go on walkabout

Every day I feel more and more confident about my hair! and I love that I'm able to do all kind of things with it without using a hair tie!
But on another note... I just found out that you can add music to your profile.. so I uploaded a couple songs..

Out of curiosity, how many dreadlocks to people have? I've only got 26 at the moment, and I still have some hair left arund my face that hasnt formed yet. I'm guessing I'll have less than 40 when all is said and done. I'm wondering how many people have and how thick/sparse they look.
