i thought only i've awful time at salons operated by Southeast Asians....i've been made to wait for 45 minutes once before being told tht it was time for them to shut. but then i've been lucky at times when i met a hot Montana girl giving me haircut n massage...the last time lady at the parlor almost shaved my head off when i suggested her to trim my sidelocks. could go on and on abt experiences at parlors...every trip is a new story!

Hello, fellow Chicagoan-Indi-blogger-type-person (which is kind of like Wasim Jaffer patting Tendulkar on the back and saying "Hello, fellow-Indian-opening-batsman", but I digress).

So, do you have blogger meets in Chicago like they do in other cities, or are we not enough/not cool enough for things like that?

Great article, reminds me of the seinfeld episode where Elain is trying to get some work done on her nails...
A quick suggestion.. if the eyebrows are that thick, how about a lawn mower? :)

anumita: and that was the cheapest of the lot. To get better treatment, I would hav eto shell a 20. Whenever I go to India, I do a full service with the amount I spend for eyebrows here.

Shub: vely much thele. evly hail.

TF: You are my true friend...the only one. Love you.. but er..your template freaks me out at work what with music and all. Change it!
shub shub bolo..imagine ripping my iblouse out..that would require serious hibernation.

chug: Jigsaw puzzle.. get? Thanks for helping me collect for my eyebrow fund..and wait a minute, you are a web designer?? *scheming and plotting* Will get back to you..got distracted. Now I am willing to get rid of the jigsaw too.

ho minh: dlinks? why?

Jesus! You pay 6 dollars for eyebrows!! My Indian mind is busy converting but my miserable maths is telling me not to bother, it's just a heart attacking amount!

LOL.Twin,I never knew eyebrows could be sooo fascinating,till I read this post..nor did I know that eyebrow bashing,err,shaping,is a specialty of Vietnamese..BTW,mischievous thought...the guy asking what the poky poky thing near the eyebrows was...wasn't referring to a hint/trace of a beard/moustache,was he??(I know u'll kill me for this comment,but,couldn't resist it.Sorry:))
