One of the Year 4s there asked me if I'd gotten a haircut - I said that I had, and added that I cut it myself. (I used the trimmer that I bought a little while ago. The results of my inexperienced and impatient handiwork were "short.") The student asked me why, and I told him it was because I couldn't afford a haircut - they're too expensive here. I quoted prices and made a gesture of clipping my own hair.
He looked at me quizzically and said, "You know, you are funny sometimes." He didn't mean the ha-ha kind.

Trevor Immelman has won the Masters. I got up at 4 this morning to catch some of it, but it was a rough go considering that we'd been partying all day Sunday.
Tiger was struggling with his putter, but he still managed a second-place finish. If it was any other golfer putting like he did, they probably wouldn't have even made the cut.
It'd be cool if a winner of the Par 3 Contest won the tournament. Then people wouldn't think it's "jinxed," and they might start trying to repeat the feat of winning both. I wonder who'll do it first, and when? We could be waiting a while...
