I 'gave the boys a haircut' today. Setting #1 on the safety hair clippers I got myself for Christmas. Much more comfy than the other options.



Aaah, that's better. I've been thinking it's about time we edged this journal a little closer to TMI.

I had made a more censored version of the picture to put up here, but that just seemed silly, considering.

two observations

1. If not for the counter and camera, that image could pass for an oil painting. Very interesting color balances - you should do more.

2. You are distressingly good-looking and I kind of hate you for that.

1. Thanks. The arty-ness of it comes from constraints of the tools and the medium -- like most, if not all, art I suppose. The Treo 600 cameras have trouble correctly sensing the amount of available light, and tend to produce random swaths of blue pixels and an overly bluish image. Correcting for that by reducing blue and green (using irfanview on a PC) warms the skin tones and makes me look healthier. Saving to JPG format a second time warbles the pixels some more, so if it didn't already look like an oil painting, that could do it.

2. Thanks, but pictures lie. If you want I'll show you the rest of the shots I took, in which I look either emaciated or bloated. I've never really had a camera before; I was amazed how difficult it is to photograph something well enough even to be able to tell what it is. Close-ups of body parts might as well be alien landscapes.

Hey! I look like that.

Except that I'm wider.
And my torso is wrapped in a thick layer of fat.
And it's about 14 times hairier.

...
Ok, fine, I look nothing at all like that.

I'm told my metabolism should change any year now, and I'll fit those descriptions.

But anyway, we do have some resemblances.

I spent years getting used to the razor, and the aftermath of days of hell... Then I tried the #1 and #2.... It's faster, less bloody, but really much harder to get to that part that saves you 80% a month in toilet paper use.... In either case, excellent for springtime, nice to have the A/C on down there.... liberating in fact... Winter on the other hand, well... It can make a twisted head smile.... fuck the weather.... :) -SoccerMom

I'd read about the aftermath of shaving, so I was happy to find this compromise.

Funny that my first thought was, instead of noticing the lack of hair on your naked body parts, "Hey! That's my bathroom! Cool!"

Dude, if /I/ shaved my head, I'd look like a pirate. NOT the pretty kind, either. I've even got the scars.


Or did you mean that I need some man-scaping? That might be an option.

Well, it's not exposing the non-work-safe parts...

But, yum. Naked man! I must get one of my own.

You look less thin from this perspective.
