I'm still settling back into my non-traveling routine -- i.e., the one that does not involve sitting behind the wheel of a rented Chrysler 300 for hours at a stretch while a never-ending montage of Midwestern novelty unspools on the other side of the windshield -- and a proper recap of my trip is going to take a while to compose. But I worry my Loyal Readers may suffer if they have to wait too long without any Simple Tricks and Nonsense to occupy their minds, so here's a little tidbit I ran across just before I left... allow me to present the ultimate Halloween accessory, the Rick Springfield Costume Wig!
Available from EveryCostume.com, the Rick Springfield wig is described thusly:
Knock' em dead and show Jessie's girl that you're the one she wants. The Rick Springfield Costume Wig features black, wavy hair with messy bangs. This 80s singer shag is chin length and features thick, full hair. Made of synthetic hair fiber, this men's costume wig is ideal for your 80's character or rockband singer costume. One size fits most adults.
I guess your place in pop-cultural history is secure when ironic hipsters can buy a cheap nylon copy of your signature hair style, eh?
