Disappointment Comes in Threes

Wow, I've just had a terrible start to my week. Firstly, I got pretty sick with nausea and dizziness, so much so that I had to miss work and clinic duty and lay in bed waiting for it to stop spinning so I could rush to the bathroom. Secondly, the day I started to feel better, my computer - which has been misbehaving lately when I've been watching movies on Winamp - decided that it would implode completely, but luckily with a little help from the upstairs computers, I got it working again. Considering how many thumbs I seem to gain when I work on the computer, that was unpleasant. Thirdly, I've just found out that in order to complete a fit test to be eligible for my hospital placement come September, I need to be clean-shaven. I hate not having a beard. I know some people (*cough* Peach *cough*) like a smooth-faced Doc, but I've wanted a beard since I was about 6, and I only shave it off in very rare cases: birthday presents, emergency Elvis impersonations, and the like. Plus, with the increased work schedule, I'll be in the public eye even more, and they might not like me with scruffy, unshaven growth for two weeks. This is going to drive me nuts.

(I know that nobody really cares about that stuff, but I needed to bitch.)

Edit: Am now clean-shaven. Profile picture updated to reflect the change. Am going to beat things in WoW to relieve stress. That is all.

I want to know more about the emergency Elvis impersonation. Was someone choking on a fried peanut-butter-and-banana sandwich?

Oh man, way to smother your individuality! Beards are fantastic. It's a shame yours has to go.

Jack Bauer said...

I care.


Being clean-shaven is rife with possibility, however; this ay when you grow it out you can potentially look haggard and "intense".

What about a handlebar moustache?? Will they allow that? Or the Tony Almeida soul patch?

And here I thought you needed it in SEPTEMBER! Tell you what, I'll let mine grow out so you can live vicariously through my growth.

And how cool would it be to see a real Jack Bauer blog, as opposed to Justice just faking it?

Well, at least you're allowed to be a shaggy-haired (if clean shaven) lego man. I understand your issue, though. I got my nose pierced immediately after leaving the job that wouldn't let me, mostly just because I could.

Jeans said...

Your little lego guy is hilarious. Awesome.

I agree with Jack. If and when you grow it out again, HANDLEBARS!

Jago said...

Be just like Scott! And Triple H!

Nezbitt said...

Stop encouraging Scott to look like Triple H!!

That lego guy update is great! If peach likes you cleanshaven, think of all the positive attention you'll receive!!

Weird. I was just commenting on another blog about how bad things come in threes.

Why would you shave for an Elvis impersonation? Young Elvis?
