It's that time of year again.


Just as charming, but not a socialist.

I've made my decision. As I have nothing really better to do, I'm going to grow out my beard again*.

*It'll come off as soon as I have a job interview or date. So, yeah, I'll have it for quite a while.

Dr. Ross needs some Just For Men.

Man, don't come with that weak sauce; "but I'll cut it if I have a date or a job interview." F*ck the world, grow your beard long and strong! I've got $50 bucks worth of beard products coming my way. You better be rocking a full on Santa Claus, Taliban, Amish country beard. Go big or go home!

Go Russian Boyar!

Oh, I don't know...I think you look sexy with a beard.

Last year I almost won the MSUCVM Class of 2009 1st Annual Chuck Norris Commemorative Beard-Growing Competition...ironic that I'm practically the only single guy in the class, yet I have the most testosterone...hmmmm. I had to be responsible and shave it off for some conference, but I definitely should have won the superlative for "Most Resembling of Chuck Norris."

My brother recently grew a beard, which I learned about upon seeing him at home last week. He says it keeps his face warmer while he's walking to work.

That's it. The leg hair is growing out! I'm tired of freezing my ass off...

Erm... I mostly wear pants anyway.

spydrz - Nah. He's "distinguished."

THSE - We'll see, but I don't have your guts. And what kind of beard care products are you getting for that sum? And, totally unrelated, have you heard the new Jarvis Cocker album? It's brilliant.

mags - Aw, thanks. (pssssst. that's not me in the pic)

dubin - The Dubin does not sleep; he waits. You ought to grow it out again. I'll race you. Go!

law fairy - Any warming benefit is immediately negated by the itch factor. The things I do to be a bear (a heterosexual one, that is).

jasdye said...

go for it, dude.

you can always trim it for the dates and interviews and then keep it sloppy for a while.

my wife's a bit too sensitive for my ol' mcscruffy. but if not, i'd join you in a show of beardy-solidarity.

besides, i abhor shaving.

Mags said...

8) Oh, I know what you look like...

;)

By the way, your word verification is harassing me...it's "buubz"

Micah said...

jasdye - Take a page out of the THSE playbook. If you can commit, don't bother showing up. Grow your bear, man. You're already married. What can she do?

mags - That's an interesting way to spell it. I'll have to use that sometime.

I hear ya, Micah. Hell, for all of my bluster, I'd probably shave my beard for the right one (job or broad.) But only the right one...and I'd need some guarantees first.

Anyhow, I ordered a beard cleanser and some kind of softener/moisturizer. I'm in this for the long haul, so I'm going all out.

Oh yeah, the itchy phase is normally right in the beginning when it's just starting out. Give it a couple weeks and you're golden!

spydrz said...

Do a Selleck-stache.

The Lads will be happy.

The Dubin said...

Shit...I shaved this morning! No matter, I'll catch up.

jasdye said...

micah,

withhold.

Micah said...

THSE - Interesting. I've never used any product on my beard. I may have to check out that stuff.

spydrz - That's not for me. My brother tried the 'stache and he looked hilarious. Too bad he didn't keep it.

dubin - Well, I have a week jump on you. I'd wait and shave again, but...no. I don't think I've ever seen you with any type of facial hair. Now, facials, on the other hand, all of the time.

jasdye - You can hold out. Release your frustrations through your beard. Like Tom Cruise.

The Dubin said...

Yeah, that was always Emo's doing.

jasdye said...

um... no thank you.

i'm done with the celibate ride.
