(22:53:31) A Presaged Death: Hey!
(22:54:09) Rob T Firefly: I'm just about to get off AIM because I'm being IMed to death by a bunch of people, but I cant without saying hi to the coolest lady in the western US.

Beard of Evil

Rob @ 10:29 PM

Any stragglers who wish to join me and mine for the NYC Halloween Parade tomorrow, call me or drop me a line! I'm looking to arrive in Penn Station at 5:20 or so, and go from there.

Over the past couple of weeks I've grown a beard, for the sole purpose of bleaching it to match the wig for my Gene Frenkel costume. I normally don't like having facial hair. It's itchy, it's difficult to keep soup out of, and when I've got my black hat and coat on I'm often mistaken for an Orthodox Jew. The only thing I really like about it is the fact that there's more grey in it every time I grow it in. Grey hair is extremely neat.

Anyway, at a Samhain party last night a friend of mine who seemed to really like the beard ordered me to at least take some photos of it before I shave. So, this is me on the bus with a camera phone...

Not Anton Lavey
Not even Lovey Howell

My greatest bearded achievement so far has been getting compared to Wooly Willy. I hope to surpass that with my performance tomorrow.

Can't think up a proper post, but here's a neat quiz swiped from the lovely Court...

1. What did you do last night?
Stayed up far too late listening to Doctor Who audio plays.

2. Who was the last person you called?

3. What does the 5th text on your phone say?
It's from my sister Jo, letting me know that she can't come with to the parade because she's a knob with a job.

4. When was the last time you thought about sex?
Just now reading this question.

5. When was the last time you got hurt?

8. What are you listening to right now?
Ike and Tina Turner.

9. Why did your last relationship end?
Nothing developed beyond friendship.

10. What bothers you the most about the opposite sex?

11. Where was the best date you've ever been on?
Hours of just walking, talking, and exploring.

12. What was the first thing a guy/girl bought for you?
