I watch the ripples change their size
But never leave the stream
Of warm impermanence
And so the days float through my eyes
But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They're quite aware of what they're goin' through

Mirror, Mirror

Okay, so I promised to do this the next time I shaved my beard off. So I took the plunge last weekend. I start clinicals in two weeks. Since long beards are unhygienic (shedding both follicles and microbes), I had my choice of scratchy short, the Amish Cheesemaker hairnet (includes the beard), or going for full shorn.

I've mentioned before that with only a mustache I look like an Italian porn star from the 70s, so we're not going for that look. But while shaving my face, I took the time to take a picture of Evil Steve With a Goatee.

Yeah, that's the look that has parents clutching their children as I walk through the grocery store. I haven't cut my hair yet, so no pictures of the completely shaven Steve.

There was a med student last year who had a 'stache that belonged in a really bad 70s porno. The ones with the awful music.

Whenever there were exams we'd all look for him, and boggle over the fact he had to have thought that looked attractive.

Wow, I'd hate to be his patient. Every time he came into the room my brain would start playing boom chicka wow wow.

Maybe, if we're lucky, he'll be a pathologist and not a gynecologist.
