Pop-Culture Vacuums And Long-Haired Hippie Babies: Life Tidbits From Our Little Bungalow

Lone Star Girl:  ...so, finally, I heard it at the closing ceremony at the GWF and I was like,"Oh!  So this is that song!  I hadn't heard it before!" and Spidey was like "Where do you live?! I live in the middle of nowhere and I've heard it!" and I was like "I live in a cultural vacuum"...

Me:  POP-cultural vacuum.

LSG:  You're right; pop-cultural vacuum.

Me:  Plenty of culture....

Meanwhile, the Lone Star Baby has managed to grow her hair quite incredibly long in recent months.  It is easily past her waist, something hard for us curlier girls to understand.  I keep trying to convince her to donate it, but she wants to keep it long.  I am starting to think that people who see her will think she belongs to some crazy females-must-have-long-hair sect of the religious right, rather than our own crazy peace-and-equality-loving sect of the religious left.  She quite insists on keeping it long, though.

Love it! I'm a long haired lefty, though I don't think anyone would confuse me for a conservative.
