Non sum quod eram, and party mix

After three years of it sitting on my face, I officially removed my beard. It will take some habituation. Most people, men and women, were telling me for ages to get rid of it. Too bad I don't have a pic to post.
So now instead of the grizzled crazy hermit I now resemble that retarded kid down the street with whom kids play hockey :)

Another change I have introduced: I have not smoked in four days. So far so good. I was hoping to quit sometime this fall anyway.

Also, I am looking for an online copy of C.S. Lewis' Preface to Paradise Lost. Is it not public domain yet?

Maybe not a beard, but a very significant goatee.

Zelda can tell if you have a voice like Jeremy Piven's but can't tell if you had a beard? As an ex of mine used to say, "Me confuzzed...."

haha, good point J. I'm confuzzed as well. I thought my beard/goatee was quite pronounced. I'm still having trouble adjusting to it.
