It's NO SHAVE NOVEMBER. You can participate in conjunction with Movember! And National Write-a-Novel-in-a-Month Month!

I did not start with a clean slate, but I shall still keep the faith. NO SHAVE NOVEMBER.

Had another date with Ikea. We got a dining table and some chairs. As well as that wardrobe we meant to get earlier. And some small helpful things. One of the customer service dudes was rather douche-like and unhelpful. I didn't have time to insult him, since the reservation on our Zipcar was running out. We still need, like, a couch and some loveseats. For serious. Wife, if you're reading this, we can totally order a bench right now, there were some with free shipping. Why not? The only problem is that benches are not as long as the table with all the leaves in, but that's no big deal.

We set up our bookshelves and have most of our books put up. We have a crummy bookshelf that is unstable, too weak for books, so we're putting in on its side and turning it into an arty sideboard type thing.

There are a lot of books I want to grab and read now out of Teh Wife's collection.

Hmm, I just saw a listing for a sofa and loveseat on $UNIVERSITY version of craigslist for very cheap... But it's far away nowadays... But, yeah, we should ask about this one sofa we could have for free if it's still available first, the tricky part is finding the additional labor to move things. Which exists, but you have to coordinate.

Work is all stuff and nonsense.

I don't shave for 4-6 months at a time by infinitera (2.00 / 0) #2 Mon Nov 02, 2009 at 11:31:14 AM EST
Then reset. It's less work. So no special Novembers for me. I already started back in September.

My beard grows in exactly how I want it. So I shall, technically, be participating in No Shave November.
