Semi-Sicilian Hair

I haven't paid attention to Natalie Merchant since I listened to her 10,000 Maniac's album In My Tribe about 10,000 times---on audio cassette---when bink and I were living in Chicago in the late 80s.

But just today a friend told me Merchant >
 has a Sicilian grandfather ("Mercante") and looks like she could be my cousin.

So I googled her and
1. in fact, I do have a cousin who looks like her

2. I also have hair like hers.

I'd been wondering if I should cut mine, but I think for now, anyway, I'll leave it long.

I'm busy with work, so not blogging much at the moment.

Oh, wow, yeah, that's kin right there. Aren't genetics interesting?

DNA. It really works.

Oh, and so does Natalie,

Heard this on our local public radio, and thought of you.
