I might just skip out on the whole "getting photographic evidence of the beard" thing and just shave the bloody thing in shame.

on thursday, i happen to have nothing on my schedule. friday is "suicide prevention day", a day off. starting at 8am on thursday, they will stage a reading of the odyssey which will last until they've gone through it all, projected ending at 10pm. i'll so totally be there for like 5 hours of it.

details of why inside.



i had a huge test on monday in greek. i hadn't been to class in a while for a variety of reasons, so i spent every waking moment i wasn't churching it up or sleeping between friday evening and the test drilling greek [note the lack of breaks for eating]. the prep paid off.

however, tomorrow, i have a differential equations test. diff eq? i haven't taken that in five years. you forget a lot in five years, apparently. so, i'm madly reviewing even now. well, not quite. i'm being lazy. i have piles to grade. i have a beard to shave in shame. i have other homework due tomorrow.

but, all this combines to make thursday a good day to not have anything to do but watch people read the odyssey, maybe jump in and read myself for a while [though i don't have a copy on hand, but i'm sure if i wanted in they'd hand me a copy for the afternoon].

now to grade and remember how to do differential equations, maybe shave the beard into shameful muttonchops of death and destruction, to be later shaven to The Smoothness of Shame.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! by MohammedNiyalSayeed (2.00 / 0) #1 Tue Feb 07, 2006 at 02:02:28 PM EST

Stay strong! DO NOT SHAVE THE BEARD! If anything, shave the pubes in shame or something. That way, it'll be your own, private (not to mention silky smooth) shame, but for the LOVE OF GREAT JUSTICE, DO NO HARM TO THE BEARD!

i'm sorry, it is what justice demands. do you not think that i also am lamenting? i am not looking forward to this. this beard is love. this beard keeps me warm at night. chicks dig the beard. i will write emo songs to the beard when it is gone.

Would it be rude to say. by ambrosen (2.00 / 0) #4 Wed Feb 08, 2006 at 12:33:36 AM EST
That I think you will be better without the manbeard of justice. Although I know not what the shame is for.

Also, I am envious of you for such regular churching it, being in exile from the only city in the UK where that is possible. Especially as I have shared a deep fried Mars Bar with your priest.
