Suggested wine pairing: 2 parts pink shampoo, 3 parts grape moonshine.
So concludes another
I hope it helped you feel shiny, clean, and voluminous.
I still really appreciate Shampoo Week. Yet again this year, it inspired a “woah, has it been a year since the last Shampoo week?” and caused me to reflect on where I was a year ago. It does this better than the usual holidays, because the usual holidays either come with a bunch of distracting baggage of things I have to do, or are 100% ignorable and thus ignored by me. But Shampoo Week shakes me out of complacency with a more-than-normal amount of Mountain Time and a sudden focus on shampoo, and pulls my attention in the evenings when I’m relaxing and consuming entertainment — just enough for me to become contemplative and realize how my life has changed since the last time this was the case.
This time, in addition to all that, I’m realizing how many years I’ve been reading this comic. It’s always FELT like the odd one I added to my RSS reader recently — but Shampoo Week doesn’t lie, it’s been at least three years, maybe over four, since I started reading this as it updated. That seems too significant to take for granted, so I bought the book. Now I’ll have a physical object on my bookshelf reminding me that this is a thing I read. Thank you!
Does Herbal Essenzilla emit a radioactive breath ray that gives people orgasms? because holy crap, those commercials. “try ze body vash” indeed.
Stephen: Thank YOU! I appreciate that you follow my stuff closely enough to have that kind of reaction to it. (For the record, Shampoo Week strikes me the same way: How is it already Shampoo Week again?! Fuck, I’m old now.)
Also, I honestly love that you count Shampoo Week as a holiday (of sorts, at least), because it’s totally meant to be! Even if it isn’t really about shampoo (and it should be, dammit, so think about how you wash your hair, but whatevs), it’s still — at least from my POV — a celebration of the fact that some people really know their Mountain Time. And that’s very rewarding!
Your book should be shipped on Monday. Thanks a hundred, cap’m!
Cold: The orgasm breath ray has got to be among the best Kaiju innovations of the last decade. Prepare to make a mint.
This is the first time I’ve ever uttered this, but I have to say it. Hey, I was told there was going to be Prell!
