Well... time to grow a beard

It's beginning to get cold, I have no work-trips planned for the near future, and no women-type prospects worth considering. I think it's time to stop shaving. It's already been about 5 days since my last shave. Hello scruffy goodness.

It'll be interesting to see how long I can last. Usually make it about a month before I go nuts and shave. I can never seem to make it past the "oh my god it itches, kill me" point. Plus, I dunno when a work-trip will pop up. Have to be clean shaven to go on-site.

Anyone else growing a beard? And all you beard-clad gentlemen (and ladies, if there are some roooowwwwrrr!), do you have any words of wisdom for us wet behind the ears beard growers?

Start with a goatee or something small. That way, your whole face won't be in the "oh my God, it itches" phase all at once.

If you go goat style, make sure it looks just like this and you, too, can win a World Series:

No. It's all or nothing. I've made a pact. Either I grow a full beard or I commit sepuku.

the itchiness goes away after a while. it helps to keep the neck shaved though, as that gets annoying when you have a scarf or other winter clothing item that seals up the neck aera. plus a hairy neck looks a lot more unkempt.

What about the upper cheek where the facial hair gets really thin? In times past I've tried cleaning that up and it ended up looking ridiculous.

No too many scotch tumblers, they tend to avoid tumbling, what with the kilt and the no underwear thing and all. Sorry Doc.

Put enough scotch in the Scots and they can't help but tumble, commando or not.

I had burns once. I let them get pretty big. Then, I grew a goatee, too. A few months later, I realized it was totally crazy to just be shaving a little wee teeny triangle on my cheeks each day, so I went for the whole beard.

Then I got a real job, cut my long hair off, and started shaving all over again. I've kinda missed it a few times. I had a goatee last winter, but I haven't decided if I want one this year.

I've already done the side burn thing and, on me, it was anything but hot.
