I dunno, this was well received the last time, so here I am again.


Is this thing on?


While out at Flipside, I decided it was time for another shave/trim.

I took these pictures when I returned.


The electric razor (at setting #1) ran out of battery power halfway through, and I didn't bring the charger, but I wasn't going to stop there -- that looked pretty odd! Like the boys were wearing a clown wig or something. So I got out some scissors and systematically gathered up tufts of hair and trimmed the ends, the way I've seen haircutters do.

Boy was it hot out there.  It's summertime in Texas, and a little less insulation really makes a difference.

(It did not occur to me (until just now) that I ought to take a "before" picture as well.)

Anyway, this worked pretty well, so I kept going and did some "manscaping" -- trimming to about 1" everywhere except my legs. The result: the distribution and appearance of body hair is mostly the same as before, but there's less of it. Yay!


Uniform-length chest hair kinda looks like fire, close-up.


Sorry the pictures are a little blurry. It's hard to hold the little camera phone steady.


Hooray for showers and air conditioning! Clean and shiny. And rested!


I wasn't planning to bother posting all these, but it's fun...


This is a pub(l)ic journal, and I even let Google's indexer crawl it. I may eventually make these privates, ah, private. But what else is the Interweb for, if not for posting naked pictures of oneself?


I mean really -- you can't eat it, and you sure can't kill it.

I want wings first. Then chlorophyll, so I can feed off sunlight.

plants can feel what you are thinking. i wonder what role chlorophyll plays in that.

also, linda goodman outlines a five step path to an enlightened diet the last phase of which is breathetarianism which, it seems, would allow for the same ability.

but what i really meant to say was

This was actually pretty fun to rea-- er, look through -- if somewhat tainted by the fact that your entry came right after one myrch just wrote about the history of shaving, in my friends-entry page.

Irony, sweet sweet irony, like the soapy suds you covered yourself with.

Miller time.

Actually, I'd say that shaving post you mention is a brilliant bit of writing and I'm happy to have my shaven ape-ness next to it. It's the equally compelling post about comment whoring that hits a little close for comfort in this context. ;-)

You flatter me. Check out the filename of that last picture. ;-) Mr. Bloom has a better nose, but I've got the dimpled chin. Give me pointy ears and I could take him on.
