OMG, he has Anime Hair!

It’s true. My 16-month old grandson Knut is cultivating a distinctive head of wild Anime Hair.

I’m thinking this might be Shonen Hair, which “often comes with Hot Bloodedness and/or a nature somewhere between rebel, free spirit and Chaotic Good”. Yeah, sounds about right.

    If we are talking anime, I hope he will grow up to be like Alucard, specifically the one of the fan-based parody “Hellsing Ultimate Abridged”.
    Fav. one-liner (visiting Rio and passing the statue) “Jesus wants a hug”!
    Or other anime characters: the people from Moominvalley in the Japanese version, especially the small fiery one.
    Family Guy: Stewie. Especially the evil doppelganger Stewie.

    Also, he looks a bit like Tintin. I see great things in his future; shootouts with baddies, journeys to the moon.

    All it needs to be is an unnatural shade of blue.

    I typically avoid getting a haircut during winter and had delayed my fall haircut, just didn’t get around to it. So, my hair is the longest that it’s been for 40 years.
    So, along came last week’s wind storm, ended up looking much the same.
    So, into work I went and the Rear Admiral looked quizzically at me, I pointed at the entrance behind me and said, “And I combed my hair before I left the house, why?”, to be greeted with a laugh of agreement.

    As long as it isn’t going all spiky and yellow you should be fine. By which I mean the destruction should be kept relatively minimal, not measured in gigatons. Fortunately, you’ll have a good three episodes’ worth of warning or so to evacuate the general region…
