I grew up an Auburn fan but attended UA, so I'm one of the few people in the state who confesses to riding the fence. One of my favorite stories about my freshman year of college was the time I wore my dad's old Auburn sweater, and the boys in the dorm wrote "Alabama" on a piece of masking tape and covered up the Auburn logo.
Alabama lost the game Saturday, marking a depressing end to a promising season. Oh well.
Sunday morning, Darwin made me cut his hair. He's been growing it out for a while, just to see what it would do. I like how curly and unruly it gets on the weekend when he doesn't comb it after we wake up. But it was starting to create problems for him, since it made his welding hat slip around on his head. So he went "skint" again.
Witness the transformation:
That afternoon Darwin had a singing engagement, and I joined him. Then we went to see Walk the Line afterward. Last fall I did a story on movie sets for the magazine where I work, and Darwin accompanied me to the set of Walk the Line in Tunica, Miss. So we both had a special interest in seeing this flick.
It was fun watching the places and people we saw up on the big screen. And the movie was awesome. Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon sang all the songs themselves, and Joaquin in particular sounded incredibly like Johnny Cash. It was like being there and watching Johnny Cash perform.
Also, I wore my new shoes, which are the best shoes in the world. Really, this whole post has just been an excuse to post this picture:
