Most Unforgettable Quote of the Day (1 August 2012)

The hardest hair to create is gray.  In its natural state, it’s the most expensive hair in the world.

—  Richard Mawbey, famous London wigmaker

This quote comes from a wigmaker who was the subject of a profile in the Saturday, July 28, 2012 issue of the Wall Street Journal.  Self never in her life expected to read about a wigmaker in the pages of the Wall Street Journal.  But there it is.

Mr. Mawbey is responsible for creating hair for the likes of “Madonna, pop star Kylie Minogue and Sean Connery.”  His wigs have been used in theatrical productions like “La Cage Aux Folles,” “Evita,” and “Frost/Nixon.”

You know, self thinks the Wall Street Journal has now become —  in the absence of the Guardian —  her “paper of choice.”  At least, until she can get to Bacolod and resume reading the Visayan Daily Star!

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
