michael5000 has a close shave!

I started the day Friday in the fullness of beard. [photo credit: my co-worker Mo]


Then I went to my uncle's barbershop.



"Make me look like I live in the suburbs," I said.


He went to work.



Now I'm clean-cut.


michael5000's hair by Gary's Barber Shop, 2308 SE Division. $9 a whack.


(cf. last year's beard-shaving experience)

I think a dinosaur wants to kiss you.

omg! I love the in-action shot. You really do look like you should live in the burbs. Are you going to get a raise, too? I'm going to send my man down to your Gary's; he's always on alert for the good haircut deal.

Presidential! Suweet!

You look good both ways, but wow, it is like you are a different person! :)

And the best thing about a shave and a haircut is, if you end up wishing for the old locks again, they'll grow back!

I have recently regrown my beard, which I keep quite short to avoid bird nest comparisons. Said I to my beloved yesterday: "I'm glad to see the grey is more symmetrical now."
