I have to admit, I kind of love all the weird gadgets, because I figure there's *somebody* who could really use that (like the grandmother with arthritis and the egg separator), and it's neat that such things are available. My personal favorite is the little collander-sort-of-thing for tunafish cans, so that you can squeeze out all the liquid before scooping the tuna into a bowl.
Butbutbut . . . that's why they come in cans, right? You run the can opener all around the lid, then you smash the lid down into the tuna to drain the juice! (Or to drink it, if you're my brother . . .)
But you can never get the juice drained really well that way, and little bits of tuna like to squirt out the side. I just find the little collander things so much easier.
As for my hair, it's frizzy... malleable hair? It basically holds whatever position it dries in. So if I let it dry down, it's curly/frizzy. If it dries in a bun, it's perfectly straight hair. If it dries in a ponytail, it's mostly straight, some frizzing/curling past the ponytail holder. I usually pull it back with barrettes and let it dry down, and then it's straight to the barrettes, and curly the rest of the way down. But regardless, it's always frizzy. The curls just help to hide the look of the frizz.
So I should just wash it and then maybe put the barrettes in, but let it dry without brushing it at all? That sounds... scary. Won't it be a tangled mess? When I was about 9, I was struggling to brush my hair well, it just took so long and pulled so much. My mom took me to the RenFest, and they had one of those booths where they'll french-braid your hair. She was going to have mine done, and took my ponytail out and ran her fingers through it... and I not only didn't get a french-braid, but I got chewed out for my "rat's nest" hair and how I could have things growing in it for all she could tell, it was so tangled and frizzy, and I had to have my hair-brushing supervised for some time afterwards. <sigh>
