Dear Diary,
It has been 24 days since my last confession...
Errr, wait. Wrong context.

It occurs to me that refreshing my friends page obsessively and posting once a month may be a little odd. Almost like I'm not really a part of this here LJ community, but more of a lurker. Just a random thought.

Today I had a new sensory experience! Did you know that your breath can condense in a mustache (if you have one) and freeze? it's very odd, your upper-lip starts feeling a little stiff, so you wiggle it and it crackles for a second. It only seems to happen below about 12F for me, I'm hoping that one of these days it'll get way colder and I can try to actually snap bits off.

Oh, did I mention I'm conducting an experiment on my face? Yeah, I have a mustache and small beard at the moment. [EDIT: see here!] The jury is out, but most people who have expressed an opinion say that the beard bit is good but the mustache ain't so hot. Unfortunately the beard without the mustache would be an Amish chin-strap, and I don't think that would look good on me, so I'm trying to figure out where to go with it from here. I don't think it will be a long-term addition to my face, but I certainly need to keep it long enough to have a few pictures taken of me so that I can look back when I'm old and say "Hey, I remember having a beard for a few months, that was funny!"

Big gig tonight for ENSMB, we're doing a little circus at the Arisia Sci-Fi convention in Cambridge. You'd have to buy into the con to see the show, which is somewhere in the $15-20 range. But if you're going to go to the con anyway, come to the ballroom tonight between 7 and 11pm and check out the fun!

aaaand back to work.
