|Constipation, insomnia, depression?|
I used to have oily hair. Now I have an oily head. Makes sense, doesn't it? My head has a kind of muskiness that transfers to my head covers unless I take precautions. I seem to favor one-step head covers for around-the-house needs these days, like the one that Nora sent me (pictured below) from Hawaii, and a few buffs that Dhammagita sent. I'm using the pretty scarves, too, but mostly not wrapping them around my head.
I don't even look like this.
Listened to a bit of Malcolm Gladwell's What the Dog Saw tonight. Fascinating, especially the part about Cesar Millan, analyzing how he moves...
Movie night on Bartlett St.: Watched a bit of Koyaanisqatsi. And Quadrophenia including important Q&A with Padmatara. (So was it a clothing issue between the Mods and the Rockers? Is that Sting? What's Beachy Head?) It was astonishing how often the men call each other cunts. I suppose the equivalent here is calling someone a pussy. But it seems so much worse.
THIS JUST IN:
Friend from Britain clarifies:
Pussy is saying someone is a wimp or cowardly or feeble (basically a man who’s seen as behaving like a woman in some negative way). Cunt is much worse (partly as it’s always been such a taboo word) – it’s someone who’s a complete bastard, or totally stupid, or really thoughtless or selfish, etc, or simply someone you hate - more the equivalent of asshole for you, but actually I think it's more weighty than asshole. Of course as always it depends on who’s saying it to whom. It’s so long since I saw Quadrophenia I can't remember it – but often it’s used as a sort of friendly banter way (like any other insulting word can be).
You may also be interested to know that calling someone a ‘berk’, while it sounds much less insulting (and indeed is generally intended as much less insulting) actyally means cunt, as it comes from rhyming slang – Berkely Hunt/cunt.So my summary is, a super harsh yet almost friendly way for a British male to refer to a male friend, using a very bad word for vagina.
