Equinoxious!

I was tired of shaving, so I decided to grow a beard. I didn't want to keep it permanently, though -- I hate having a beard during the summer. Coincidentally, I decided that during the week of the autumnal equinox, so I thought "Hey! I'll grow it from equinox to equinox!" Six months, from the autumnal equinox to the vernal equinox.

So that's what I've been doing. It's been about four months now; six weeks to go.

I've been trimming it around my lips, which was a mistake. I should have let it grow and combed it out of the way instead. Live and learn.

It actually looked reasonably neat for about three months. Then it went crazy and started getting all curly and fluffy and stuff. Brushing and combing no longer work. I look like a homeless giant now. I kind of like it.
