Beard

BEARD, n. The hair that is commonly cut off by those who justly execrate the Chinese custom of shaving the head.

2010 Update: Facial hair cultivated by cultured men to distinguish themselves from lunatics and visa-versa.

This day desperately needed a laugh-out-loud moment to save the week from being a complete craphole.

The update nailed it.

Brilliant!

Hope your weekend's fabulous!

Beard, n, natural bird feeder.

Thank you, Doug, you must have looked in my mirror. I've had my scrawny beard for quite a few years. Most of the time I can keep the lice out.

Susan -- definitely a L-O-L moment!

Ariel -- Your English is not too good. It's natural feed reader

..

Jim -- Don't forget to tell Mrs Jim that Walmart's real good sale started yesterday. Summer pygamas are no longer on sale for $1 each. Flannel shirts are $2.34 each.

Oh, and Jim, I assume you'll be around for Susan at Stony River's Microfiction Monday, right?

Beard: Chin hair.

Your updates are always worth it, even in tiny font. I squint for you.

beard, beered. One's so much better than the other.

ipses? I understood there'd be no Latin today.

"It's Wednesday and Doug appears tired

In work and in life he is mired

He writes about change

Which is well in his range

Perhaps it's from Nash he was sired"

Looking for a Saturday miracle.

"Wow -- I like a limerick in italics!"

"It's much much better than a green [sic] limerick with birthday wishes for Actonbell whom I don't really know but wish her Happy Birthday anyway."

Doug said...

Thanks, Susan. I wish you a whole good week.

And a nest for feher golyak, Ariel.

Jim, my own mirror bores me after a while.

Karen, from curator to campmother?

TLP, that's funny.

Actonbell, the font should be the same size as ever. Maybe it's moving a little faster today?

Thanks, Cooper.

OK, back to curator, Karen?

Sorry TLP, I had high hopes, too.

I left a comment here about Amoeba's beard being a dandy handle when I want his undivided attention. Apparently blogger didn't care for it. Funny, Amoeba doesn't, either.

Jim's not in ยต-fiction this week.
Jim's on the road.
He's glad Susan's youngest made it!
And says "Best of wishes in the job hunt."
