I’m having a bad hair

I’m having a bad hair day. By that, I mean my hair looks bad. No amount of wetting, combing, gentle persuasion or loud cursing will do anything – it just sticks straight up. Whilst this provides a source of mirth for others, I find it downright irritating. Suggestions?

My cold is slightly better today, but I think the chances of shaking it completely before boarding the ferry tomorrow night are slim. guh. At least I have the prospect of a weekend in Brittany to look forward to – assuming I’m not violently seasick on the ferry. The weather forecast I heard yesterday was not inspiring.
