It’s Been Too Long

Charles Law with a beautiful handlebar moustache that spans about 12 inches.

Photo courtesy of hasn’t been fresh for at least two years. It’s been a real shame hasn’t it? All of the stories we missed out on sharing! The shock, the awe. Ugh. Where did the time go? Well I am happy to report that I have been off growing. Got more into electronic music (Switchblade Etiquette) and theatre. I’ve been working it to get serious about JavaScript and understanding how to come up with a machine with all the parts I make in my brain pocket. Been rebranding ID10Tz and that’s going deliciously. OooOooh! Got hitched to the amazing, talented, and extremely hirable Jason Sharp. Also, been working on improving home life with some organization, de-hoarding and home cookin’. Finally, exercising when I’m not dorking out, so basically not often. That’s the update!

You may be wondering now if I’m going to finally explain that image of the handsome mustache on that man. Well, that is Charles Law of Borehamwood, Hertfordshire. I found that he and I share something in common. We can overreact at some pretty harmless things at times. However I don’t share that impulse to knife my brother or actually kick a 13 year old for making fun of an obviously obscure wide-set-curl-tipped-waxed-up-super-crackafied handlebar mustache. As a result to scaring the Judas out of teens he was told that he had to shave his ‘stache because he clearly can’t brush off the taunting comments people give him.

It goes to show you that maybe all it takes to get over your hang up is to ditch the source of your frustration. For example, I can be funny, goofy and nonsensical a lot of the time. This has proven to diminish how serious people take what I have to say or do and, that’s frustrating at times. So what would I ditch? The need that I should be taken seriously. Proof is in the pudding y’all and I like that I love to have fun when I’m working hard. If you don’t, that’s your problem then, huh?

I leave you with this:
