moon phase experiment

May 1st 2009 UPDATE
I'm currently deciding on whether to trim a couple of inches off. There's still this problem with about 2 hairs at fingertip length and the longest ten or so hairs being about 2" beyond Classic, but not really doing much for the overall look of my hair. I might feel odd trimming that much but I don't think it will be a bad thing necessarily.
When I trim I will record the details on the trims page, but this difference in length will not be subtracted from the overall growth for the month. I will calculate the growth since last measurement prior to trimming so that the overall growth for the month is not reduced just because of a trim. An asterisk (*) beside the date and measurement will serve to indicate that a trim has been had since previous measurement (see trims on link to right). I will enter below the actual measurement.
In 2005 I switched to measuring quarterly. It is better for me to not have to think about my hair length once a month and just forget about it. I measure close to the Full Moon and the Quarters. I ended my moon phase experiment at the end of 2003 - this is still archived at the top of the page.
The next measurement is due on or near Full Moon of the 12th December 2008. My last trim was 19th February 2007. As of this November 19th update I still haven't trimmed :)

Here are my measurements so far:
