A Close Shave

Wedding pictures.

Everyone wants to look good in their wedding photos. While in person, my hair is fairly thick, and the van Dyke was pretty full, the way flash photography plays with the grey hairs make me look a bit "follically challenged".

See. Scruffy.


So I decided it was time to take it off. To take it all off…

Shave-02 And as a blogger, I had to video it, right?

* Note: I have since done the math, and I've had the van Dyke since November 2007, not October 2008. I wouldn't want to mislead you in the video by spreading falsehoods.

You look so different ... so different ... so very different ... Oh.My.God.

I think I'm in shock.

Okay, confession time:

When I got up this morning I ran for the 'puter because I was eager to see this post. But then when I got here I found I couldn't scroll down past the first picture because I was afraid it might be too different; that you might not look like YOU anymore. And I love you and everything about you just as you are, so why on Earth would I ever want you to change????

I was honestly afraid it might make me cry. But I made myself do it, and you know what?




*wolf whistle*

My, my, my.

So, ummmm.... remind me again, when do I get to see this in person?....


Scope said...

Laura - Different better? Or different "Where's the circus?"

wigsf - I feel sad for you, too.

Cora - Not soon enough. Not soon enough.

SkylersDad said...

Excellent! I had no idea that Nair worked so well... ;^)

jenn said...

Lookin' good, Scope! You two are going to be one HOT wedding couple.

JenJen said...

awesome. I'm petrified to do a video post. I hate my voice and look terrible in pictures. I hide behind the font.

Char said...

dammit! Why can't I open the video? HELP...I wanna see!

I was hoping that you were going to have a super high lady's voice.

Sadly, it's exactly how I imagined it.

Hello handsome...

Nair? I would have never thought of that. You should put it together for a guest beauty post on the Daily Dandy. Something like, "Today's Special:Pre-Pube Softness..."

Sorry I got a little carried away.

I also love the little monkey and spider on the door...

I can't see the video either! Damn netbook! I'm gonna have to get on my regular computer soon to check it out. Maybe tomorrow.

Nice "before" picture, anyway.

1. You look GREAT!
2. There's no way in hell that was Nair. This video has conspiracy written all over it. Nair doesn't work. I think you shaved then recovered your face in cream so that the video would be shorter.

Cora said...

Well, looky here. You take it all off, Scope, and then you get a million comments.

There's a lesson to be learned here. Definitely.


Scope said...

SkylersDad - Nair. You would be amazed.

jenn - Thanks, but it's all Cora. I'm bringing down the average.

JenJen - As long as you aren't doing THOSE type of videos instead.

Char - I don't know!

Dr Zibbs - I have done a few videos in the past, but yeah, I think I have a fairly normal guy voice.

Candy's daily Dandy - Yeah, I don't think I'm giving up my day job. And I'm glad you noticed the switch-a-roo hanging on the hook.

J.J. in L.A. - You won't be disappointed in the video. Wait, yes you will.

Jan @ Struck by Serendipity - 1. Thank you. 2. Dang you and your analytical mind. I had them all fooled, and I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for the girl and her dogs. (Or whatever the Scooby-Doo villians said.)

Laura - Are We Nearly There Yet Mummy? said...

Sorry, realised this morning that I should have elaborated ... better, definitely better!

But as you know I'm sending my. Daughter to school as an alien in underpants tomorrow. Can you trust my opinion?

If I walk right past you don't take it personally.

Oh and we need a new cinnabun pic now!

J.J. said...

Now that I can see...


Took a couple years off your face.

Uh, that was a compliment. : )
