Heh! I am feeling pretty damn good at the moment! Today was set to be a hellacious Departmental Meeting with people getting horribly angry at each other and generally being idiots. I worried about it all week long, as I am Chair of the Department and oversee the meeting and hate with a passion, the vile vitriol that can ensue at these sorts of things. Well, I am damn proud to say that I handled the situation with aplomb! I kept people reasonable and kind to each other, and no umbrage broke out! We actually accomplished a fair amount of work!
The above pleased me no end, and I thought that called for a celebratory late afternoon with my elderly father-in-law. He was in a brandy mood, whereas I was in more of a boilermaker mood (whisky and beer for those who may not know what a boilermaker is). Ample pipes were also enjoyed!
Now I am home, feeling pleasant. So, pleasant in fact that I decided to "handlebar" my mustache, much to the chagrin of my wife. I do admit I look a bit silly with a wide, handlebar mustache along with my beard.... but what the hell... I find it rather fun to look a bit odd and silly! I am thinking I will sport the handlebar all weekend, even at Mass. I will get a lot of silly looks and grins about it, but it will be fun! I will brush my mustache back out for Monday morning, so I look back to my regular self. But for now, it if fun looking like an old German beirmeister from the 1800s!!!
