"Trim closely the moustache and grow the beard and thus act different from the fire-worshippers."  
Walking through the U. Penn campus to get my lunch yesterday, I saw a guy in a gorilla costume riding a bicycle down the sidewalk. A guy running ahead of him was half yelling (with faux shock) "watch out, everyone, it's a gorilla!"

In other hairy face news, my beard is getting really long and scraggly. K. originally didn't want me to trim it, because I usually shave my head when I trim my beard, but even she is now saying "Hmmmm... maybe you should trim that." But I feel like I've already survived the hottest months of summer with the full beard, I might as well keep it growing all winter, right?

That's what old men do, right? They grow long beards and walk with canes. Oooh... gotta buy a cane. My one complaint with my own beard, is that I have about 30 white hairs in it. I really wish there were more. I'd love a nice salt-and-pepper beard.

I like hiding behind my beard. It's like a disguise. I wonder if women feel the same way about wearing makeup?

I can highly recommend the folks who travel around selling canes at PA ethnic-style fairs. I picked mine up at the Kutztown Penn Dutch festival. To this day, it's still the only cane I've ever found tall enough for me to use without ending up with serious back pain, it's gorgeous (hand-carved), and it cost me something like forty bucks. How can you go wrong?

(Also, in crowds, it doubles as a croquet mallet. FORE!)

No, makeup just feels gross and dirty.
