the bitter winds of March blow forth...

Nothing is more humiliating than coming into work and having to explain 3,205 times to all my coworkers why I'm at work and not on vacation.

And before coming in to work, I found my first grey chest hair. Part of me is thinking, "Wuuuf. Jimbo is Daddylicious!" but another part of me is thinking, "NOOOOO! I can't be getting grey chest hairs yet!" What's worse is that it appears that grey chest hairs stand out straighter and more prominently than their neighbors, as if to say, "Look, look at me!"

And then the crazy person at work who last week asked me to do a photoshoot of his trophy asked me how much leaded crystal weighs versus molded acrylic plastic. News Flash: Do I look like a fucking materials engineer? Do I look like a fucking precious crystals appraiser? Did we just shift into Dungeons and Dragons land and I now have 4 ranks in the Appraisal skill? WTF are you asking me this shit for? Do I look like a theives guildmaster?

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT go see Ghost Rider in the theaters. It sucks supreme donkey dick. I kept waiting for the flaming skull head to burn away Nicholas Cage's bad wig, but that moment never came.

Spring is here, according to the birds. On Saturday I heard several house finches declaring their arrival, and some goldfinches too. Today I heard the first red-winged blackbird call near the College Park MetroRail station. Soon the spring peepers (a tiny frog) will be doing their spring thing too.

Everyone knows gay guys know a lot about crystal.

Wait until you find a gray hair on your balls. Now that is devastating.

Crystal shards, yes. I have to collect them to complete quests in World of Warcraft!!!

I'm seeing the advantages of no hair and blond is pretty close to grey anyway.

I tell myself they're *white*, not gray. Makes me feel marginally better. Ah well, at least you don't have the receding hairline thing going.

You'll get used to the gray chest fur. At least you can wear clothing to cover it. The gray head fur is a bit harder to hide.

I've been going grey on top since my late 20's. But, I have yet to find a grey hair on my chest or balls. Grey chest hair can be very sexy though.

I started coloring my gray chest hairs using "Just for Men" facial hair formula. Worked ok for a while but then I developed and alergy to it. Now if I want to color it (pre-beach, etc) I have to do it a week in advance so the red, itchy skin clears up first. Ahh vanity....

I found my first white chest hair last year. I consoled myself by thinking it was an aberrant albino renegade hair, but now there are three and I'm getting worried. Do they make Just For Men for chest hair?
