Put the razor down…

Posted by Ben on Thursday, October 30, 2008

…and nobody (else) gets hurt.

Well, here it is, the first of my “progress” pictures for the Movember 2008 event. Yes, it’s a hair early (har har), but I’m in a whirlwind of packing for vacation that starts tomorrow, and I really don’t want to have to slow down to compose and post, not that I don’t love y’all, of course:

This is me in all my freshly-shorn glory (other parts got some landscaping, too, while I was at it, but you don’t need to know—let alone see—any of that) ;) This was taken a good twenty minutes after I finished shaving to let all the blood stop seeping. Perhaps it’s best that I do put the razor down for awhile. I hate shaving and really only do it once every two weeks or so (a benefit of working in radio), as clearly the razor is not kind to me. My facial hair is coarse and grows in all different directions, so everything you’ve read or heard about shaving in one direction doesn’t work for me. Oh well.

At any rate, I still haven’t decided if I’m going to groom in any way, shape, or fashion, or just let it go all lumberjack (flannel shirt not included). I’m still taking offers—er, suggestions on that front, but don’t think I’m ignoring you if I don’t do anything in particular (remember, I can be bought)—I’m still the one who has to wear this thing.

Thanks again for all the support you’ve offered, though I wonder if some of you are hesitant to associate with me in public (note the lack of comments to this point, though the money has been awesome!) :P

    That’s why I’m a rebel. I’ll comment but not donate, heh.
