No more backlog.

Ok. Got pretty much everything that was on the old version added as entries here.  Check the Archives for brand new old posts. Now I can decide if I just want to direct the domain here. Actually, I think I’ll just redo the main page as an entry point.

Oh, and the lack of mustache is still weired, but I’m trying to give it a fair shake. So far I don’t like it, although the responses I got at work were that I looked younger without it. Given the amount of gray I’d begun to have in my beard, that’s not surprising, but I suspect the comments will keep coming for a few days. It think I would have gotten fewer reactions if I’d just had the gray hairs dyed blue…

My upper lip is naked…

Shaved the beard and for the first time ever, the mustache.


So I thought back, looked at some old pictures, and the rough estimate on the last time I was without a mustache is sometime in 1989 or early 1990. I’m not one for changing my appearance all that often, but that’s pretty damned long.

I’ve shaved the beard a couple of times, but never the mustache.

It feels a little odd, and I’m still attempting to get used to how I look.

It feels cold when I exhale through my nose, but it’s been ridiculously hot this weekend, so it’s been sweating whenever I’m not in a room with Air Conditioning.

I suspect the reactions of my coworkers will be either “Whoa” ala Bill & Ted, or stunned silence followed by inquiries of who I am and what did I do with the real me. I’m still the evil twin, so don’t expect a kinder, gentler me anytime soon.

As to why the hell I did this, well, I’ve been considering it for a while now and finally decided to just suck it up and do it.

One bit of advice I received from a friend is that it’ll grow back. Hearing that from someone else (again) was enough to kick me out of the waffling funk I was in about it. She is right, it’ll grow back, but I did counter that if she recoils in horror, it’s a pretty good sign that it was a bad idea.

However, I can’t blame her. 1) She’s too beautiful to blame, and 2) It’s not like she handed me the razor and a can of Edge gel and said, “Go. Shave!” That might have been interesting… 🙂 Ah well.

Sick of being alone.

If at any point in your life, you come to realize there’s something or someone you want, go after it right away.

Don’t wait. You’re never going to build up more nerve than you have at the moment you realize, “I want that/her/him more than anything in the world.”

All waiting does is give someone else the opportunity to slip in there and grab it before you can.

Then you’ll never know it would have turned out, and you’ll hate yourself more and more each day.
