Ten Sleep, Wyoming

A small town in northern Wyoming has a strange name: Ten Sleep. It was named by the Sioux Indians because it was ten days from two Sioux camps in opposite directions.  It's a small town, otherwise not distinguishable.

This Is the Pits!

Okay, one of the strangest fashion trends is for women to refrain from shaving your armpits.  Yes, wearing your underarm hair as long as a guys!  And to compound things, dye the underarm hair in startling colors, like voodoo blue or pink!  Supposedly, pit-dyers do it for various reasons: as an expression of feminism, for self-expression, because it looks nice, or because it freaks some people out!  

Not surprisingly, Miley Cyrus died hers pink.

Anyway, you can read about it here.  Dyeing hair on the head is already done (like by me).  What is next?  Dyeing one's beaver instead of getting a Brazilian?

Wednesday Evening

I can't say much in favor of Wednesday. It's hump day; it's halfway between the weekends, work gets really cranked up.  Plus television sucks on Wednesday night.
Wednesday is the time to go downtown. I should be one beery wench later on, and who knows?
