It's my brother Robert's birthday today. Today he turns the ripe old age of 24, reminding me that I will always be 5 1/2 years older than him. :)
I had to post a picture of the aforementioned blue hair. Though the blue hair was in 1999 or so (this is a pic from Christmas 1999) and it is long gone. I am happy (read: jealous) to report that his hair, once again dark brown, is now much longer, thicker and curlier than mine will ever be. And I have made my peace with that thought.
