The Peter Thomas Hair Salon at Virginia and Shattuck in…

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

The Peter Thomas Hair Salon at Virginia and Shattuck in Berkeley (510-843-0697) puts classified ads in the Daily Cal asking for models for free haircuts. Today I'll take advantage of their offer for the third time. It's a good place with very expensive stylists, and they always satisfy me, so it's worth the two hours with a trainee. Also, the owner has a lovely British accent, and sometimes I get to hear it.

Since the haircut will take place from 5 till 7 pm, I'll miss the Objectivist lecture on "How the Ivory Towers Destroyed the Twin Towers" or whatever. Oh darn.
