I need help.

My absentmindedness is out of control.

I am no longer surprised when I find myself wearing socks that don't match, or forgetting to zip up my pants or my backpack, or sending an email saying "Hi, here's my report" with no file attached. But today I outdid myself — I accidentally shaved off my goatee.

How the hell does one accidentally shave off their goatee, you might ask. A most reasonable question. Well, I forgot to insert the length attachment into my trimmer (I mean, it's like the ONLY attachment there is) and the default length is zero. I didn't realize what I was doing until it was too late.

With my goatee I've lost my sense of identity. When I look in the mirror, I ask ponderous questions: "Who art thou? What be thine purpose in life? And what the fuck are you doing looking into a mirror instead of working, you dumbass?"

At least I have my long hair. Without it I would be empty, devoid of soul, an automaton, an animal roaming the streets, a Lagashian at Nightfall.

Were you kidnapped by a horde of fanatics with the sole object of mutilating your mane? Or did you chop it off on a dare in a moment of dazed drunkenness? :)

Speaking of hair, I've a "serious" problem- I have no clue whether I want it long, or have it short ( the summer here is mighty scorching)...I've decided to wait until after my exams, in any case:<
Lucky you- I bet it ain't half as hot, there...

Not as hot as Madras, but it's no joyride over here either. Last year the maximum temperature was 108°F (42°C).

Re: et tu?

Well, came here through your post in the math forum. Your "defense" of Friends sealed it :D

P.S:

I prefer scrunchie - could it be more funny?
