Hello Beard Fans, and Happy New Year!
Well, the donations have flooded in in the last week of so. Big thanks go out to Adam & Naomi, Tom & Cathy, Lord Benj, my father-in-law Richard, father-in-law Ken, Paul, Oakers and random surfer Andy Lorenz!
Well, I’ve made it to a year, and the beard has now gone. It’s very strange being beardless, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it soon enough!
I featured in the local Comet this week:
Me in The Comet
The beard has gone! In a shaving team effort at my mate Dan’s just after mid-night on New Years Eve, the beard was shaven.
Here’s the before:
Before - full beard
During - half beard
After - no beard
It’s amazing that a full year of beard growth fitted into one little bag, but I suppose I am but a boy. I feel much younger now, and am looking forward to blending back into obscurity.
That’s me done for now! Many thanks again to everyone for their support over the last year or so.
Bye for now!
Well, I’ve just has the last shave of 2009.
I decided that I ought to start off with short hair, so have spent the last hour or so with the clippers. Number 1 all over! I was going to go for the proper Bic job and go bald bald, but I think I’ve gone far enough.
No shaving for me for 2009, so I’ve binned the razor. I am clean shaven for the last time in 365 days. Even my beloved sideburns have gone, which I have worn with pride since about 15, when I was able to start growing them.
Bye Bye Razor
So Happy New Year from Beardie Weirdie. The first proper Blog post with Beard Of The Week will start on Friday (2nd January 2009!)
Well, the goatee has gone. I’m going to shave regularly from now until the end of 2008.
Here’s the after shot.
I’ve had a goatee beard on and off (more on than off to be fair), for the past few years.
I think for full impact of growing a beard for all 2009, I ought to start off being properly clean shaven, so I think for rest of 2008, I’m going to lose the goatee.
If I can work out how to, I’m going to add some before and after shots.
