Hard Rock Hallelujah

A couple of years ago I had my legs publicly waxed for charity. This morning, standing briefly in front of the mirror in all my glory after a shower, I notice that the outer sides of each leg are still rather bald. The hair on those parts of my legs will, presumably, never grow back properly. This upset and then amused me.

During my first class of the day a student tells me a story that greatly amused and then upset me.

Later, not being in the mood for college, I skive off and go to see Anvil: The Story of Anvil with a mate instead. A movie that both upset and amused me.

pubicly waxed! ha!

oh no, wait...

Darren said...

You got your legs waxed? Eek!

Lottie said...

So you wax you legs ONCE and the hair never grows back?

You're just asking for the ire of women everywhere with that one.

You'll have to wax the other to even it up

Andrew said...

Rosie - That's a post for another day.

Darren - yep. Painful as fuck, it is. that's why we leave the ladies to do the nasty things like having babies and watching the Sex and the City movie, we're no good at all with torture.

Lottie - Aye, i wasn't really expecting to elicit sympathy. Except that it kinda has grown back a bit, just to nothing like its former glory.

Le Nord - It's just the outer calf of each leg. When the hair is all wet and slicked down it looks ridiculous but it's barely noticeable the rest of the time. No-one's coming fucking near me with hot wax again. I've been asked to shave my beard for charity this year, and that's distressing enough.

So... is Anvil any good? Worth the price of the ticket, like?

Andrew said...

Yeah, especially when you buy tht ticket with a student card during the afternoon. It's great, but I don't think you'd be missing out too much if you waited for the DVD. Not like watchmen or something (which I haven't seen yet).

Funny thing is, i thought Anvil were just a made-up band, like Spinal Tap. then it turns out the whole thing is entirely real. Which makes it a much sadder movie. And makes the singer the sweetest, dopiest man on earth.

B said...

How could you not know Anvil?!

Funnily enough, Spinal Tap made better songs

Andrew said...

Easily enough, B, I don't pay particularly close attention to the Canadian poodle-hair metal scene. Can't think why. I will from now on, obviously.

Ah you and your funny hairy legs. I keep dreaming about bodily hair lately. Hmmm. Maybe I shouldn't admit to that.
