I've seen HNT on a few other blogs I frequent and have always wanted to play along. Half a beard is not so naughty as all that, really. I think we're all pretty happy I've found a way to participate in spirit without getting nearly as risqué as most of the other posters in this circuit.
An old theater buddy asked me to do some industrial work for him this weekend, and I was more than happy to join in. I get to play a banker, and at his request, I shaved my beard to look a bit younger. My facial hair comes and goes these days anyway; its fate has been based more on how lazy I am that week than any hygiene or fashion motivation.
So, if I can try out my new camera phone, get clean shaven for a weekend gig, and not have to come up with an idea for a blog post, then I think I made the right decision.
Of course, now I’m out of ideas for next week…
