    are you documenting? photographs at each stage?

    It hadn’t occurred to me, but, if I can find the camera, I might.

    I’ll be seeing Linette’s family at some point tomorrow, and I’d rather they not see me in my Hitler phase, but I’m sure I could either accelerate or slow the process to avoid that.

    I’d like to see a Lemmy Motorhead leading to a Hulk Hogan on you, but that’d really throw a wrench in the preexisting plans. You could still pull a Hitler out of it, though.


    I like that you crinkled up the plans after working so hard on it, then uncrinkled them after having worked so hard on crinkling them up.

    No do-overs once the shaving starts.

    I’ll have you know that the paper was pre-crinkled, Brackache.

    I like the idea of taking detour into the world of Hulkamania, but, truth be told, I don’t know that I’m man enough to pull it off. (Plus, I don’t suffer from male pattern baldness.)

    3,4,2,5,8 (pose for pictures), 1, 6, 9.

    The top of your head is region 8. 9 is the rest of your head.

    Nothing but 7.

    and you sure must’ve spent a lot of time filling in that square behind your head.

    The shaving in stages is cute and all, but for a man of your status, it seems a little passe.

    I’d be much more interested in watching you grow a beard in reverse order.

    I’d do the whole thing backward, starting with an inverse Hitler.

    And this, I’m ashamed to say, had never even crossed my mind.
