¬†Well there you go. That was fun, wasn’t it.

Towards the end of my adventure – next Thursday – I will be attending a karaoke session.

I am just tremendous at karaoke.

In order to commemorate my facial hair, I was thinking of celebrating it in song.

Moustache of Theseus

An interesting post at our companion site – World of Beards – discusses the idea of heap theory within the realm of facial hair growing.

It is looking slightly Ian Beale-esque, but give it time Martin, give it time.
