    Full Disclosure: I have yet to watch the video as I am at work. I’ll watch it when I get home tonight. BUT. Jocelyn I have to tell you, I LOVE YOUR BLOG (I mean you, you are your blog, your blog is you). It is an example of exactly what I think a blog should be. Fun, interesting, thought provoking, insightful, fun. Did I say fun! A reminder of why I blogged and why I should get back to blogging. Although I never did the fun like you do. You’ve cornered the market on fun.

    I’ve kept a tin of preserved herring in my tunnel bun (or “Bunnel” as it’s known here in The Cities) since 2008, when I could not produce one and my status as a True Minnesotan was challenged.

    Never again, Joce. Never again.

    Sometimes you scare me.

    Just sayin’…

  4. Well, even the high ponytail was elegant enough for me. But if I ever need to smuggle donut holes to a meeting for quick snacking, I’m totally tunneling the bun.

    I luhf you. I am so putting Daphne’s and mine hairs (heirs?) in a tunnel bun tonight. We will then experiment with structural integrity and objects around the house. Stand by for results.

    I think the reason why this hairstyle is not more wide-spread is that you and your sister were the only people to ever wear it in MT. Now it has spread not only to your darling kidlet, but to the WORLD! Thanks for the creative promo on my invention. kissies.

    Oh my goodness, you crack me up. Biscotti in your tunnel bun?! So right about Helen Mirren. She has, ah, held up well. Did you see Calendar Girls? I only hope to look that perky someday!

  8. Oh, my. Okay, that was wildly entertaining, I’ll give you that. The celery idea made me laugh out loud. But now I’m not only not buying the beauteousness of it, I’m also deeply skeptical of the functional aspects. Get up and run around with those things tucked in your tunnel bun, I dare you. Me, I’m going to carry things in my coat pocket.

    ya know, i am not sure anyone else i know could rock a tunnel bun and lipstick outside the lines quite the way you do. i mean it. i’d be seen in public with you like that. myself…i’d probably opt for the wild combed out curls that make me resemble roseanne roseannadanna…which, by the way, is like the tunnel bun in that it is both beautiful and functional. i can hide all manner of things in the poofed out curls.

    were i to attempt a tunnel bun i’m thinking it would be a good spot for a slab of ring bologna provided a sufficient quantity of aquanet were applied to thoroughly shellac the hair in place.

    What I want to know is how you managed to do that entire video without ever cracking up. When I scrolled down and saw the beauteous lipstick I lost it.

    Go, Joce!

    I like to store hot dogs in my tunnel bun. It’s good for fending off the neighbor’s dog when I am running.

    And are those PEARLS with your hoodie? You put my ass to shame.

    Also, your house looks remarkably like my own. This kind of unnerves me.

    Oh, honey, the world is loving the tunnel-bun! So spectacularly gorgeous, so wonderfully practical. I beliee you could sell a tunnel-bun package containing the elastic band, bobby pins, hairbrush and aquanet (they do have a non-aresol version) on QVC with your instructional video. Millions, I tell you! You’d make millions!
    It is amazing what months of ccld dark nights can do….Duluth is the obvious incubator of fantastic ideas!
    Oh,and isn’t that lipstick Byron’s?

    I cannot decide which phrases make me laugh the most. Regardless, thank you, thank you, thank you for this amazing tutorial. now when I shamble with the dogs I can both look good AND have a place to store the (unused) poop bags. This has been a problem in the summer when I no longer have a coat-of-many-pockets, as i do in the winter.

    This is wonderful! I personally don’t have hair, but if I did, it would definitely be one of my tampon-hiding places. IF I could master the art of updo’s, which is doubtful. And you MADE biscotti? I buy biscotti. *sigh*

    (Some) French women consider the necklace an indispensable style piece, even for the Saturday market. I’ve managed one for 3 consecutive Saturdays but just couldn’t make it last, HOWever, you look so fabulous in pearls that you should consider making them a daily fixture. The tunnelbun was, I thought, a big unknown to me, but then when I watched you putting in those bobby pins, it all came back. The hours in front of a 3-way bathroom mirror, the recalcitrant, insufficient hair, the envy of my best friend’s sister and her thick, waist-length tresses, and the desperation of adding in my mother’s real-hair brunette switch, which did look a bit funky with my fair locks.
    This was fabulous. I continue to find the still photo arresting and hope that the day we finally meet, you’ll be tunnel-bunned and lipsticked just like that. Actually, you are performance art!
    Superb finale to the video, btw.
