The Not-Quite-Yet-Triumphant Return of my facial hair

It's not usually this slllllllllow!

Oh, I'm getting ahead of myself. Late last year I went clean-shaven again while I was sick. I put away childish things my VanDyke and stayed clean-shaven for a few weeks.

Two reasons I decided to grow it back: 1) I like it and 2) come May I want to look scruffy for the annual Cort and Fatboy screening of The Big Lebowski. It's the screening that's preceded by the March of the Lebowskis, where hundreds in bathrobes walk to the Bagdad Theater. And having a Dude-esque robe is complemented by having a Dude-esque VanDyke. I have the robe. I want the VanDyke again.

And it's growin' slow. I'm shaving around it so I don't look (too) unkempt -- have to keep looking presentable for the job -- but the actual little beard, it's not making much progress.

I should find out if anything makes hair grow slower. This is one of my many exciting thoughts.

Fans of me with facial hair, take heart. I'm trying to get it back properly.

But it's not usually this slllllllllow!

ETA: Heh. My Gmail sponsored ad just now: "Beard Bald Patches?" That's not the problem.
