My head examined


I have been told on a few occasions that I need my head examined. Okay, here goes.

I have a big head. This is not an ego thing. I just have a big head. I think I mentioned this a few months ago when I was ranting about hats. Because my head is so big, I have a hard time finding a hat that fits or doesn't look stupid.

Fortunately, I also have lots of hair. It would suck having a big head and not having enough hair to cover it up. Though I swear if I ever start losing my hair I will not do the comb over thing. I'll shave my head before I do the comb over even though it would mean having a very big bald head.

When I was a young boy, my hair was blonde. It gradually turned brown. Then after I turned 30 it started to turn gray. Now it is pretty much all gray, though in some light it kind of looks blonde again. The irony doesn't escape me.

I've heard people describe how different parts of your body shrink as you age (and get your mind out of the gutter, I'm not talking about that part). This doesn't apply to the ears and nose. They seem to get bigger and bigger, especially the ears.

Then there is the hair that grows randomly on the ears, in the ears and in the nose. And I swear I'm starting to get Albert Einstein eyebrows. I'm starting to feel like a chia pet.

I have blue eyes. I've had Lasik surgery but now I have to wear reading glasses. The irony of that doesn't escape me either.

That's about all I have to say about my head.

It is pretty big though.

I was once told that most successful entertainers have physically big heads. Like Mick Jagger. If you have a little head you can be gifted but people don't notice you. A big head commands attention.

or so I was told.........

The problem Oh with losing hair is, like you say it starts growing out of every other hole it can find.
Ears nose Ass and all of a sudden ya pubic hair becomes a Bush.

Well, you should know that your big head freaked me out this morning. I get up every morning at 5AM. It gives me some time to blogsurf before getting ready for work.

I started to read your blog when something caught my attention out of the corner of my eye. Was that your head? Did it move? I rubbed sleep out of my eyes, convinced it was my imagination and went back to reading. It happened again and again. Finally I starred at your big head waiting for it to move, feeling like an idiot.

So, add a good 5AM freak out to your list of photoshop tricks.

Ohhhh and... I don't care how big a guys head is just as long as he has teeth.

I have a big head too, and lots of hair. I'm sure only those with extremely large brains have need of big heads...

Hayden,
I had always thought it was Mick Jagger's big lips and resemblance to the late Don Knott's that made him successful. I certainly don't think it was his singing.

Whitesnake, Delusional as usual. I take comfort in that.

Shandi, You get the cigar! I like that it is subtle...kind of like something you'd see in Disney's Haunted Mansion. If you are curious (and even if you aren't), animations like this are simple to create in Photoshop. You create an image with layers which become like frames of a movie. Then save for Web, click on animation, set the time between frames and there you have it! TMI, I know.

I have all of my teeth btw...well one is an implant and I have a couple of crowns, but you would never notice.

Tim ID said...

Kat, I was thinking the same thing. It must be a big head thing. :)

Miss Bliss said...

This has nothing to do with anything, but you look like you're trapped in a big glass boob. Hopefully this isn't one of your fantasies? If so, so much for you being vanilla.

Tim ID said...

Well Miss Bliss, it is a bell jar, but apparently I am not the only one who needs their head examined. :)

I don't think you have a big head so much as a little body. If you had an Andre the Giant type body your huge noggin would hardly be noticeable.

The only thing people would notice then is your obsession with giant glass boobs.

Tim ID said...

Lights,
There is no way I'm going to write a post about examining my body. But regardless, people who live in glass boobs shouldn't throw stones.

Hey the monkey said to tell you he has started posting again.

Karuna said...

Dear Tim,

Just to let you know that the dummy is on the move.

I'll be checking in again.

I have been told I should get my head examined many times. That is sometimes preceded by the questionm "Were you dropped on your head as a child?"

Tim ID said...

Karuna,
It is great to hear from you again. I wondered what happened to you. I am glad you are well and traveling. Have a safe trip.

Kindness,
I think that was one reason my head is so big :)

anna said...

Yeah, the head turning thing freaked me out for a second too.

That's a lovely photo of you, by the way - possibly my favourite to date.

Tim ID said...

Thanks Anna, But I'm not really smiling in this one.
