I tried to castrate
myself again today. Word of advice to would-be eunuch
s: Don't take a hot shower
while having a tight elastic band
around your testicles
. The hot shower makes the pain more or less go away for the time being, but as soon as the hot water stops, you get hit
with all the pain
which was held back, and then some. I actually passed out
In other news, my roommate has had some friends from California over for a couple days. They went skiing all day today (yes, in Southern New Mexico there is skiing nearby). When they got back, we watched Trainspotting.
Oh, and even though I failed to destroy my testicles, I did finally get a haircut, the first major shedding of head mass in about 4 years. It's nice and androgynous.
