Holidays are the time for getting awesome stuff.
So you may remember the post about wig pride, if you don't you may read it. Well a few days/weeks after I wrote about how we should all have wig pride, a bag of wigs appeared on my street. So my friend Jesslyn Sheilds has blogged briefly about this bag of wigs and how I believe it came from a hooker. You may read this blog here -> http://cloudlesssulphur.blogspot.com/2010/12/narcissistic-narwhal.html. This is one theory. Those of you who know Athens, I live in a neighborhood where there is a plethora of hookers around, so it is not unlikely that a hooker may have been the owner of this bag of wigs. But why did these wigs end up on the street? My theories are as follows.
1. There an incident where the hooker had to make a quick get away and in order to gain more speed dropped the weight of the wig bag.
2. Someone got angry at their girlfriend or boyfriend and threw their partners wig bag out the car.
3. I blogged about wigs and wig pride and the wig goddess bestowed upon me a bag of wigs and missed my doorstep because the military scrambles GPS signals just a little bit.
4. The wig owner underwent hair replacement therapy and in an act of newly found freedom from the wig, chucked that old tired bag of wigs onto the street.
Feel free to vote on your favorite theory.

Of recent, I decided to join a few friends and participate in the Atlanta Santa Speedo Race. This event is a fundraiser for Camp Twin Lakes, and people donate money to run mostly nude through the streets of Atlanta at a “sanctioned” event. I will not post pictures of this but you can google it and find a myriad of photos and videos. What I want to convey to you about this event is how it felt a lot like streaking through the streets of Atlanta. So did I bring my green hat you may ask? Well no, but I donned my underwear/bathing suit, Santa hat, red and white knee high socks with the rest of the brave exhibitionists and ran 1.7 miles through the heart of Virginia Highland. The streets were lined with people who had come to watch these brave souls. But one thing I did not expect was that each of these spectators had their phones pointed at us, were they trying to get my number because I looked so attractive running in the street in my underwear? No, well not all of them. They were documenting this event by either photo or video on their phone or camera.
Lessoned I learned this weekend: In the 21st century your decisions will be documented . . . and shared.
As a side note . . .I do not regret the things I have done.
