Blogversations: Fun with my head #3


Last night I sat and watched a movie with my wife...

"House Bunny".

And I seriously thought about asking a large man to take a metal pipe to my head rather than see this train wreck of a movie to its end.

But then I thought of my wife and kids, and realized that I had quite a bit to live for, and the resulting facial contusions left by a brutal bludgeoning would have a lasting effect on my employ-ability, and in turn, the higher education of my children.

So in an effort to regain some perspective, today I offer the video from last week's St. Baldrick's shaving event. It's no House Bunny, but I have to believe it helped some kids somewhere, and so did all of you. This isn't an exciting video, but I hope you...feel it.



Props to Summer for letting me post whatever I wanted today...I hope you all enjoy this video of my removing my hair, like Samson before me. Ok...maybe since I don't work out, this isn't a good comparison.

That was a wonderful video Jay! It was fun looking at all the hair on the ground! And i loved that your kids were right up front to see.

Hope you do it again next year!

Awesome job!

Next year go for the double whammy - grow out your hair and shave it for St. Baldrick's. Donate to Locks of Love! (Like how I suggest YOU do this and not myself?)

What a good man you are.

Tony@ That One Paticular Harbor said...

Jay you are truly a Saint. what an awesome contribution you have made to St. Baldrick's but also the example and hopefully the seed you have planted in the minds of your kids as well as your may Bloggy followers of the importance of this cause. ( I shaved right with you for the karma factor)

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

Woo--hoo!! That was great to watch :)
It was neat to see your kids watching too--you are teaching them to give and the importance of charity :)

My husband is 1/2 bald--I wonder if he could join next year?

Texan Mama @ Who Put Me In Charge said...

Wow, I can't believe there were women shaving their heads too! That is something I don't think I could do. Good for you and your bald head!

How stinkin' cool was that. Your kids are so cute, too. :)
