While trimming my hair and beard this weekend, I decided to take it a step farther and shaved my entire head except for a Zappa-style beard and mustache. It's pretty much K.'s least favorite of my facial hair configurations, so I have to put with cries of distress every time she sees me.

Of course, shaving off most of your hair is a questionable idea in freezing weather and sure enough it's been nothing but snow and frosty wind since I did it. Fortunately, I get to work at home, so I'll only need to go outside to shovel the sidewalk.

see, I think that buisness of "dont shave off ones hair in the winter" is donkey crap. just think, you can wear all of the cool hats you want and never have to worry about hat hair! I hate hat hair, its usually the cause of winter head shaving...

I absolutely agree about the benefits of short/no hair and hat head, but freshly-shaved cheeks and chin really sting in the cold.

You could always get one of those balaclava things and have everyone think your some wacky hairless terrorist...

She doesn't seem the least bit bothered by the freezing weather, does she?

Which is good, because if she did I'd feel bad.

To be fair, that hat does look very warm. And they say 90% of heat loss is through your head.

Nah. That saying is based on a misinterpretation of some study done by the army.
Though I have to admit that I've only worn my serious winter coat like 3 times this winter, but almost always my wool hat! And though people might think I'm chicken wearing a helmet skiing, they should notice that it's got ear flaps and decent insulation!

Maybe she was traumatized by a performance of Joe's Garage as a child.

He's not got a beard there though.

I've had a shaved head and a moustache + goatee before - I call it the "Grand Vizier". It's amusing, but you get no play, because you aren't actually the Grand Vizier.

I could be the Grand Vizier! Why don't these damn girls know I'm the Grand Vizier!?!?

That's funny. You need assgirl's furry hat.
