Tired of forum moderation or a life of moderation? If the latter, will we 'see' you after a hang over wears off?

Its the weekend if the latter I suspect your right.

If the former, I suspect its because a post that was submitted in the classifieds at 21:56 last night had not been approved by the time he posted this at 22:34.
The content of said post could just as easily (and which the majority of persons would have) been sent via pm :wink:

Anyone else taking the opportunity to exercise a bit of facial topiary? I have started a bit of selected shaving, aiming at a kind of "evil overlord" look.

This may well be largely undermined by the fact that it will turn out 98% white, and I'll look more like a decrepit Professor of Archaeology instead.

Had a full beard for ages anyway, luckily it's not grey yet.

You could get a bit sculptural with it, for fun.

Me too.

I have let it get about 1 cm longer than usual though.

I also have sufficiently little hair to be able to cut that easily myself. My head probably looks a little upside down at times!

I had a beard from the age of 18 for 8 years.
I then had 2-3 year periods of being clean shaven over the next 14 years, but for the last 14+ years I have had a full set with no breaks.

Its been grey since my mid/late 30's like my hair.

It's been quite the opposite, due to FFP3 mask fitting. Everyone at work is now clean shaven, and some of them look ridiculously young for it!

I have been bearded since the age of 17, to greater or lesser extents, apart from a period from mid 2009 to late 2010 after an ex GF convinced me to loose it. The relationship went sour not long after.

Right now I'm growing it long. Very long. Aiming for ZZ Top levels of long.
It mostly grows ginger (despite my hair being brown), but when its short it's more blond on the chin, with dark stripes either side.

I also have naturally wavy shoulder length hair, also being grown long (again) after I got fed up of Portsmouth barbers getting nervous every time they got asked to do anything other than a no3 with the clippers.

I had one on and off for many years (off summer & on winter) then continuously until it started turning grey so shaved it off about 12 years ago and have been clean since. I keep getting tempted to let it grow again (although my wife is against it) as it would probably match my hair which is now very light grey.

Definitely, I've not shaved my face since early March and I've got a great big bushy black beard going on.

Was annoyed by the wiriness to begin with but took some advice - who knew conditioner was so useful? Not me.

At the same time I'm using my tiny little Wahl beard trimmers with a minuscule attachment on them, to do my head (which was getting a bit out of control).

It's all a bit of a reversal from the norm, shall we say.

I like it (for now). Everyone else (wife, daughter, boss, parents) all seem to hate it. I can live with that, at least until lock-down properly ends.

Need a new passport. Have resolved that my photo will have the biggest beard, and shortest hair, possible- ideally with a vest on for the photo - before then returning to normal before going anywhere. Why not? Call it my lock-down (AKA mid-life crisis whilst-I-still-can) souvenir.

Eating, whilst having with a mustache, is a pain in the ass mind.

I grew a beard last month, but it was uncomfortable, so it went. It grew like Desperate Dan’s and wouldn’t lie comfortably when I was in bed. And the moustache did collect food, but that wasn’t so bad because I didn’t go out for anyone to see.

SWMBO has indeed been a bit insistent that I should use conditioner - at the moment my chin has the texture of a starched hedgehog. She also had a go at my head with the Wahl hair-trimmer and gave me an all-over No3 which turned out to look (IMHO) significantly better than my usual £10 Turkish Barber job. I think she gets the job from now on - I'm not paying her the tenner, but I may give her the tip.

I'm having to do my head myself! Takes ages stood on the decking trying to see your reflection in the kitchen window. How I don't end up with massive tufts everywhere I'll never know.

There are such things as mirrors you know? :roll:
I got the Wahl out with the clipper attachments the other day - started on No.8 and worked down to a No.4 and stopped it there. Job done for a while.
Not scraped the face for about 15 years - trimmer does the job to keep the stubble down as when it gets too long it bugs me :loco:

Even if I say so myself I think I've done a pretty job of DIY haircuts, number 6 on top, then 4 lower down, then 3 over ears and back of neck
