Shaggy Christmas Update: Week 1

Well, week 1 is in the books for Project Codename: Shaggy Christmas.

So how's it going? Swimmingly. I took some pictures, as ridiculous as that may be. :)

I pretty much feel like a bum who just got laid off and sits around his house eating pizza. Sadly though, there is no pizza.....


Just to give this whole thing a bit more pizazz I figured I would do some completely subjective measurements of the beardage, using the whisker measuring system (e.g. the scale of 10 measurement system):


- Itchiness: 2 whiskers. I'm guessing this will get worse, as I rarely notice any itching. When I do a quick scratch does the job and leaves me feeling funky fresh again.


- Food catching: 2 whiskers. I've noticed the crumblies catching a bit, but that is probably just because I eat like a piranha: crazy fast. To date I have been unable to store snacks for later on my face.


- Noticeablility: 3 whiskers. People are starting to notice the scruffiness, although most just figure I'm a lazy bastard.


- Awesomeness: 1 whisker. I feel no super-many beard powers yet. My lumberjack appearance has yet to make any trees shudder. And as of yet it is entirely useless for any OF THESE PURPOSES (<--- no seriously, check that. It's funny)


We'll see how it's doing next week....

Tombo, take it from me. 10 weeks from now you won't know yourself.

Catalyst - I'm 24, I've got years to go before I have a chance of knowing myself. :P

The beard will only confuse things further. :)

Laughing re. your exchange with catalyst.

Not bad. It'll grow in nicely I think.

I like the impress women through the ages one.

Well...I'm just itchy looking at it. What is it with men and beards during the winter anyway? Anyway, good luck with the project...I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Melissa - :) As long as it doesn't look like a face covered with glued-on pubic hair I'll be happy. :)

Sadira - It doesn't itch all that bad right now. And it will keep my face warm when hiking out in the snow. :) Plus DaNece likes the look of it, which is why I'm really doing it.
