Hair is really really annoying.

I decided to trim my beard, and hair gets EVERYWHERE. All over the sink, all over me, clogging up the drain... yeech! And then it just grows back! The hair on my head was perfect about a month and a half ago - people were complimenting me on how it looked - but now it's just a wee bit too long, and if I get it cut, it'll be just a wee bit short, and then it'll look really good for about a week, and then it'll start looking shaggy and unkempt again. Bah! I'd like to style it once and then make it STOP.

This isn't even touching on the subject of body hair, which seems to generate even more controversy; on one of the irc channels I'm on, #/dev/gaf, discussions of 'body hair - yea or nay' seem to pop up every six weeks or so.

And this has nothing at all to do with hair, but is a general sort of question: how many people in livejournal would you continue to read if you had no (social) contact with them whatsoever? Precious few, I'd imagine. Heck, I find even reading most people's 'friends' listings to be kinda dull. At least on LJ people generally have something to say, unlike iam.bmezine.com, which is nominally about the bodmod community, but is seemingly actually about 18-year olds complaining about how nobody loves them. Feh.

Hmm . ..

I have several people in my friends list who I don't see in person much if ever. One of them (doctorpepper) is a guy I met on a MUSH a while back, and we're both too flakey to stay in touch any other way, but he's really brilliant. Others are people from mailing lists, and one of them's someone who I thought knew me but didn't, but turned out to be worth reading -- I keep these people around on my friends list because they're *interesting* and seem to like or at least not mind me. :-)

of course!

I have a buncha newsgroups that seem to have started their own thing on LJ as communities, so I see lots of people I don't know in my friends lists. I've also taken to reading the journals of folks who add me as friends (i don't want to belong to any club that would have me as a member?) and so on.

Hey, there's always more online tests I'm sure you could find. *snork*
