Yes, I am a Baldy McBaldersons. Have been for a few hours now and do you know what? I like it!! It feels amazing, particularly now that the numbness is subsiding (I was warned about initial numbness), it’s starting to get really sensitive. And I’m told I rock the look pretty well.
I know, I know, you all want me to shut up and get to the photos. Well… here goes!
So… are you ready for the final result?
Are you sure?
Alright, here goes then…
There you have it. Me, completely and totally bald!
It has been an AMAZING day, I felt so supported by the group of friends who came along to the little event I had, and strangely enough, I’m really happy with how it looks. I was sure I was going to hate it, I even had some nightmares last night. But now that it’s done and dusted, I love it.
I haven’t tallied up the donations yet but I think I might be rapidly approaching the $3000 mark. I will spend some time tomorrow sorting that out, as I’m REALLY tired (it’s been a big day for this little fat heffalump) and ready to wind down for the night.
I want to thank all of you who have donated, cheered me on, shared positives about being bald, posted links, reblogged, retweeted and facebooked to help spread the word. And I want to thank Kirk and Lyndy for being our hosts today, Kerri and Kylie for being my Pit Crew (and not butchering my head with sharp implements) and everyone else who turned up today to support me.
I will be leaving the channels for donations for the Cancer Council of Australia and Queensland Flood Appeal open for a week, as I still have people popping up donations. And if you have yet to donate, don’t you think that bald head above deserves a donation? Pretty please?
