I tapped out yesterday. Went to a "job fair", thought being clean shaven would probably be better.....barring any interviews, will go to end of month and can extend a week beyond that for a full month
Well buddy, ya gotta do what needs to be done to advance yourself. Nobody faults you for that.
I had it good for a week, I will post a pic next Thursday, which will be a week in
But I did get some leads to follow up on, and ran into somebody I haven't seen in a long time, told him a little about what I went to school for....said they have a department for that, they aren't hiring but took my resume as he said when they do hire, it takes a while to fill those positions
As always, my friend, I am wishing you the best of luck. If anyone deserves some good fortune it is you!
I had to fap, I mean tap out too. Life got me in a rear naked throat slit and then clothed me in a nasty neck brace that makes my neck itch, gave me a rash and is uncomfortable as hell. That, plus the fact I can wash my neck, face or hair yet just made No Shave November more than this ole squiddly can take.
Mine doesn't come in thick or fast enough so that itchy phase lasts for days. I shaved yesterday after about a week. It was nothing impressive.
You guys suck and give up too easily. Bluz knows what I'm talking about.
I had it fuller, but trimmed it back (and cut all my hair off again) last week, (yes, that is Mrs. Bluz in the picture with me)
Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
In 1970, after I had completed CTR school and was stationed on Guam, I found myself in the position of taking advantage of the new Naval Directives issued by CNO/ADM "Zoomy" Zumwalt who declaired beards to be acceptable attire for sailors. I immediately started pouring Carling Black Label beeron my face (if anything could grow hair on a cue ball, it was that stuff) in an effort to kick start the awesome beard that was lurking behind my chin. A few months later I was forced to stand a dress uniform (whites thank God) inspection by the newly assigned Admiral at the Naval Communications Station. While standing at rest, CTTMaster Chief Bryan started conducting a preinspection inspection. He and I hated one another's guts. He took notice of my red haired sprig of parsley on tjhe end of my chin and blew a circuit. At that point the Adm came out of the base offices and Chief Bryan didn't have time to throw me out of the inspection line. He mumbled something about making my life hell if the Adm got upset over it. The ADM came down the line making a few generally pleasant comments until he got to me. I could see Chief Bryan behind him frying eggs on his forehead while the ADM just sort of stood and stared. He then walked around behind me and then back to in front of me all the time looking me up one side and down the other side. Finally he gave a little bemused grin, stared at my beard and said said: "Boy, What is that thing?" I responded with: "It's a beard sir!" He then looked me up and down, around the sides and from the back returning to the front with a very similar grin. He then replied, "Well son, it IS on the end of your chin." He then went on with the inspection. The other chief Petty Officers, Warrent Officers and junior officers could not stop their laughter. I don't think many of them had much use for Chief Bryan. That's my beard story and I am sticking to it.

The will is not here, the will is at my office next to the hot plate with the frayed wires.
Holly crap Barry you look like Will Wheaton in that pic. Bluz you know you are the man I dont even have to say it
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
Great minds think alike Brad because I was thinking the exact same thing. Will Wheaton is Barry. Barry is Will Wheaton. Finkle is Einhorn. Einhorn is FInkle.
ok, here is my growth, 1 wk. i shaved last thursday for a job fair...but have let it go since.
welp, I had no idea who that was, so I had to google it. I'm growing my hair out on top a little bit, so for next week's pic I'll do that little hair flip thing he's got going on and we'll go for an exact match.
I looked up Wil Wheaton, still no idea who this is
Ok three weeks in tomorrow
First one is the one I posted last week
He played Wesley Crusher on Star Trek the Next Generation, and plays himself in guest appearances on Big Bang Theory
BarryZ is much better looking than that guy!
Well of course he is, but there is a resemblance.
Keep up the fight, all.

It may get shaved again. One of the places I dropped my resume off at the career fair left me a message wanting to schedule an interview for a team lead position.
Good luck, homie.
