Devil's Haircut  
Okay, so I got a haircut.

My hair is short for the first time since I was fifteen.

And it feels good (apart from the back of my neck feeling very cold, but I can wear a scarf).

I was musing that when I was in primary school it was considered the height of coolness to have spiky hair. However, no-one had hair as spiky as mine is now. I guess eleven year olds don't have the resources to put "product" in their hair every day. Seriously, it cost $17 for a jar. It's good stuff though.

I will post some 'before and after' pictures when I can be bothered.
I took the 'before' pictures myself, the day before the hair came off.

I also shaved off my beard, but the combined effect made me look like I was literally fifteen again. Maybe when I'm middle-aged I'll wish I looked younger, but frankly, I appreciate the fact that bearded men never get asked for I.D. Anyway, I think this hairstyle goes well with facial hair.

In an unrelated matter, I'd like to take this opportunity to express my dislike for the so-called "quizzes" that give random results based on your name, or whatever. Back in my day, quiz results came from the full analysis of answers to a series of questions. Ahem.

oh but they're so much more spammy when you just plug in your name. And it takes so much less effort.

Wow, so can't imagine you with short hair...and without the beard too. Will be interesting to see those photos

Well, the beard is on the way back.

I don't know if that was clear or not.

I am in advanced stages of stubble at the moment - four days growth, which is a lot because my beard grows pretty fast.

I've been trying to spike my hair for a while now, but it never quite seems to work. I think I need to use something more powerful.

But I'm okay with what my hair is like right now -- except not right now because it's currently overgrown and in need of a haircut. :P
