Feeling naked...

So today, I did one of the hardest things to do. I shaved my face. It's been three months now (over actually) since I've had my goatee and the role I have in the one act requires me to have a clean shaven face (a lady does not have a goatee...well some do...but the one I play does not.)

I've had to do this before. Last year when I was going to do "Waiting For Godot" I grew a beard and after it was cancelled, I shaved it off. Really, I feel so naked and vunerable. And it doesn't help that certain friends of mine said: "OH MY GOD! You look so weird! I can't even look at you!" Yeah, thanks. That makes me feel ten times better. But thank you to the friends who did not say that and actually made me feel as good as I'm going to about doing it. And who knows, maybe I'll keep it off for a while. I did that last year.

I just feel like everyone is looking at me and saying "Oh he's looks so different and uglier!" Even though I know (I hope) that's not what they are actually saying.

Believe me, it's not my choice to do it, and if I had a choice I wouldn't. But I did. And there is nothing to do now but to get used to it. So to make up for it, I put a new picture up (for Christmas) and made it so I had a lots of facial hair. Yes it's white, but it's better than nothing right now.


Christmas Quote #3

A Christmas quote from my favorite TV show, the Golden Girls. If you watch the show, you'd understand to significance of Rose and St. Olaf and may even think the quote is as funny as I do.

"Like we say in St. Olaf, Christmas without fruitcake is like St. Sigmund's Day without the headless boy." -Rose
