For months now I have been wanting to take a gander at rollers here at CPC.  I’ve always been slightly obsessed with them and I think this may be due to the fact that I have completely straight hair that won’t hold a curl for more than 10 minutes – and that’s if I’m lucky.  No amount of hair spray would force my hair to stay in any size curl and a curling iron was no better.  So I’ve always glanced at them from afar with longing and wistfulness, weeping silently into my non-modified-for-rollers pillow as I dreamt of unrolling a roller from my hair and having a curly cue strand of my hair bounce up and down forever and ever….

Anyway the day has finally come to stare at them for hours on end until our collective eyes bleed from too much looking.

So sit back and take in these fab devices in all their cricular glory!!

Oh, and I did mention that we would be seeing more dicks here at CPC – so prepare yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought so!  Well then we’ll just have to do this again won’t we!!!

But Halloween month is coming up so unless you’re suggesting I do a post under the guise of rollers as a costume….oh you were?

Well I might just do that!

But apparently the decal transfer craze has completely passed us by cause I bought these for less than they [...]

Easter Pics from the Olden Days

Last easter I tried my darndest to find some old Easter pics from my olde timey days of being a kid in the 70s, but all I could find were these Donald Duck blow up doll pics (which really was more of a bonus than anything if you ask me).  They happen to be pics [...]
