That was his audition for the new Star Trek movie.
The goatee is part of the whole "Dawson's Creek" meets "Star Trek" theme.

Just got a new Donek alpine snowboard! (Well, new to me anyway...it's been ridden a couple times at most.) It just sucks that there's no hills within a thousand kilometers I could rip this thing on, haha!

I hosted the pic with imageshack. If you click on it you will get a larger version. And yes that is a pig.

You mean pictures of ourselves stuffed to the point of explosion on Christmas food and goodies? Yeah, right. Like anyone’s going to show that off.

I do have plenty of artificial sweetener [aka fake plastic smile], though (not from over Christmas):

My holiday moustache:



Grown as a beard for 6 days while the office was closed for the holidays, shaved into a mustache, and promptly shaved within 30 minutes.

Disgusting.

I received quite a bit of flak this year over my complete inability to smile on command. I really am incapable of smiling for pictures. My sister claims I ruined all of her wedding pictures. My girlfriend's mom wishes that I could smile. There's just something about being photographed that completely ruins my ability to look happy or normal, and my family feels the need to remind me of that.

Some people just seem completely unable to produce a natural look for the camera. Ever seen the Friends episode where Chandler can't smile?

You know, come to think of it, I think I've seen some pictures you've posted here where your smile looked just as natural as anyone else's. Candids?

Probably candids, yes. I’m the same. If I know there’s a camera, smile immediately becomes fake and plasticky (see exhibit A above); it takes candids to get a proper smile from me documented.

I used to have a hard time producing a smile on demand for photos. Finally I just started laughing when I was getting my picture taken. Obviously not a belly-rolling laugh, but more like a chuckle. Then I just refined it into a smile. Now my smiles look natural (at least I hope).

Edit: A little secret for getting your picture taken. Place your tongue up and back onto the roof of your mouth. Helps get rid of the "turkey waddle".

Observe the fat area under the neck.

(this is actually one of the top results when I Googled "neck gobbler fat" or something like that...Elvis was another)



Imagine it being a bit less extreme, capable of being sucked in.

"Neck gobbler."

Yeah, that's the only way to catch me smiling. I've stood in front of the mirror trying to make a smile, but I can't seem to do it. So staged pictures usually end up coming out like this:

Well I wish I had a good story for that, but the truth is I was all snuggled up in bed when I realized I had left my car parked on the street. Not wanting to get a dreaded $35 parking ticket in the morning, I got up, got dressed, and ran down stairs to move the car. I came back in and was running up the stairs and either slipped or caught my toe on a step and down I went with a sickening thud.

There are two morals to this story: 1. Don't run up stairs with your hands stuffed in your coat pockets or the only thing that will break your fall when you trip is your head. B. An ER visit copay is the exact same price under my insurance as a parking ticket. The 15 stitches are a bonus.

Oh, three morals to the story. When you walk into the ER with blood pouring out of your head, and your girlfriend just happens to be working the nightshift, and just happens to be the first person you see when walking into said ER, there will not be a massive outpouring of sympathies and "OMG are you alright?" but a roll of the eyes and a "WTF, do I even want to know?".

Ha! Sounds like Karma decided you had $35 you didn't deserve and was going to get it from you either way.

That story is better than you thought, particularly with the observations.

I like the way you arch your brow, but you should really grow out a mustache to twirl if you want to complete the look.

Additional note: This also works with fathers (though I believe his exact words were, “Now what have you done, you bozo?”. And technically, blood was pouring out from my eyebrow, not my skull).

No, just a rather unfortunately executed fly over the handle bar of my bike that rather unfortunately ended in a rather unfortunate encounter with a case of bottles sitting in the parked open trailer with which I had just rather unfortunately collided.

Curiously (and rather fortunately, I suppose), not a single bottle was harmed, nor was there any apparent damage to my front wheel. The front fork, however, had acquired a rather unfortunate shape.

You know, maybe you should get the difference between smilling and kissing straight.

That also could explain for some awkward reactions you got from girls.
