Me: on Ferris wheel 2012-09-09
Had a fabulous visit with eisa this past weekend! I was so glad to get to see her. Don’t have time to do it justice, but one of the highlights was meeting a delightful sweetie of hers. (And we watched Shaun of the Dead, which I hadn’t gotten to when it was in theaters.)

In other news, I’ve shaved off my beard. I did that mainly so that my full-face CPAP mask would fit better; I’ve slept with it without the beard once, and it seems to help. (I couldn’t actually detect any leakage with the beard, but the mask seemed more effective last night judging by how I felt this morning.) I’ve had to switch to the full-face mask because I discovered recently that I no longer consistently wake up when I open my mouth in my sleep and I’m wearing the nose-only mask (and all the pressurized air rushes out my mouth), and if I’m blithely sleeping away with my mouth open and using the nose-only mask, the CPAP machine isn’t doing me much good.

I’m not thrilled with the way my face looks without the beard (it really makes my head look round and boyish), but if it makes a difference in how effective the mask is, it’s what I have to do. And it doesn’t look terrible.

My chin felt very cold yesterday morning. :-)

Now to bed!

I'm sure your newly-smooth face will have other useful applications as well. :)

*Blink.* Whatever could you mean?

-Dude, you're pretty much round and boyish all over.

(I've noticed in pics of you that you look a bit more grownup with somewhat longer hair. You might try that.)

I am, actually! I’ve been growing it out for a while. We’ll see if it has that effect. (We’ll also see whether the long hair lasts through next August.) I was hoping my grey would be a bit more prominent than it’s turned out to be. :-)

You can get a chin strap to hold your mouth closed. I'm at my sister's for Thanksgiving, but I can look up the one that Seth has when I get home.
