I've had it. I think it's time to retire the word "literally" from the English language, seeing as how nobody--not journalists, not novelists, not message board posters--can use it correctly anymore. 99% of the time I see it, the writer either means "figuratively," or else is using the term to add wholly-unnecessary emphasis (i.e., "The car was literally red"). It's time to give up and move on.

In happier news, I finally got my hair cut today. I usually get it cut every three or four months, getting around two inches cut off each time. It's been about six weeks since it needed to be cut, so I had the lady chop off three and a half inches. Ahhhh, freedom. I hate it when my hair touches my shoulders; it feels like it's eating my neck, and the longer it gets, the more I fidget with it, and that drives me up a wall, which makes me play with it even more, and it's a vicious cycle.
