That's just stupid, though, if you ask me.

In my religion, some of the people consider a well-trimmed goaty beard to be unacceptable, while a mustache is fine and quite common.

The logic of that is just bewildering. In fact, there is no logic to it, it's simply people believing they're still living in the 60's, where woman are only allowed to make sandwiches and computers are the size of my house.

sometimes I like to take a trip in the time machine and shave it all off. its strange- like seeing a different person in the mirror. but it definitely suits me, at least for now, so its going to stay for a while.
I did that, too. But I kinda did the opposite.

My ex girlfriend used to prefer my hair long but I always kept it short because it's what I prefered. Then when we broke up, I grew my hair long and grew my beard properly as well. I haven't shaved since then and only get my hair 6 times a year.

I grow a wicked nice beard (see profile pic).

The only problem is I can't keep it because I'm getting a new job that involves interacting with people

I'll miss you, Fredrick

(yes, my beard's name is Fredrick)

I once quit a job because they demanded that all employees be clean shaven. They let me get away with a lot of stubble because I was their best employee... but one day I came in and said if they wouldn't let me grow a beard I was quitting and that I already had another job lined up if they weren't willing to bend the rule.

It's about the only time I've ever done something as bad ass as calling out the boss and I flipped a table on the way out (given it was a tiny end table in the common room... and then I felt so bad I had to go back and reset it and apologize to the boss for letting my adrenaline get the best of me ) </story time>


Seriously, if you could only do one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be (job, hobby, whatever... just that's the only thing you can do besides eat bread, drink water, sleep/other essentials for being alive)?

I've always had aspirations of being a writer or a musician, but in a more doable sense I've always loved the idea of opening a bar with live music. Dayton's a dead city but the cool bars here that have bands on the weekends do well and the owners at all of them are great and enjoy what they do. The entire staff at the bar I help around at are like a big family and some of the best people I know. I would like that - running a bar, making drinks, booking bands, building a community.

I agree with Randy. There's something about running a bar. Unfortunately I think it would be much less romantic than I envision it.

In the words of bukowski, "you don't want to be a writer. you want to be succesful at writing." you are already a writer.

I'd be a chef. I want to be a lawyer rather than a chef (I want my hobbies to stay hobbies) but if I had to choose between being a lawyer and never cooking again vs. being a chef, I'd choose being a chef.

hahaha man I used to worry that the beard was the reason for it, but I kinda woke up and realized I was doing it for myself. very empowering in an odd way. like taking control of who you are, even if its with something little like a beard.

Write.

I could do so much more if all I had to worry about is essential living. I despise money. It's probably the most useless human invention.

Whoever first said "Hey... I'll buy that shiny rock for three sea shells..." should be shot in the face.

I would be a subsistence farmer and I would farm. I would build my own little house on a big ol' field and grow all my food and have a gigantic library and read and write and eat the food I grow, and have a nice, intelligent, pretty farmer wife and little farmer children and teach them stuff about life.

And I wouldn't have internet, so if I disappear one day, you guys will know I'm off farming somewhere and maybe you can drop by and try some of my margherita pizza or stuffed squash, all of which I grew and made myself. It's quite tasty, hypothetically.

Really though, that's my ideal life. Alas, I'm going to be a doctor because I don't know shit about farming and I do know shit about science and people and helping them. Maybe I'll have a little garden in the side yard of my modernist house on the edge of a cliff, and a wife who has read a book about farmers once, and children who know what farming is, and their 15 year old lip gloss digital babysitter will show them Saw III and 40 Year Old Virgin and teach them about life...

Randy, my brother and I have had serious conversations about starting up a bar in my town/city. The selection we have that regularly plays good music, even just on a jukebox, is ridiculous. We don't have any, to put it bluntly. Considering that most people view Ireland as the drinking capitol of the world, you'd think they'd be at least one bar that regularly played good music and had the right atmosphere.
