To Keep Or Not To Keep!

The Guardian has an article about some things to do in 2015 among which this paragraph has caused a bit of a dilemma for me!  Please click on the image for a larger resolution.

There is an interesting description there about being a “lumbersexual”, which intrigues me more. I don’t work at Nerdery, nor am a barhopper. But I do wear checked shirts and keep a beard. I don’t look anything like the models featured in the article, but if push came to shove I can work a Mac as well as a Nerd though I don’t carry in in a backpack. I drink one mug of coffee a day and two mugs of tea, so I can pass for the requirement in that department.


The dilemma is in taking off the beard. So, this is a poll. Should I keep or not keep my beard in 2015? At the end of the poll, I am unlikely to take off the beard because I am just too lazy to shave everyday, but the poll should be interesting!

  2. You might have guessed my response, of course, knowing how lazy I am. 🙂

    For a guru, wisdom is concentrated in the beard, so don’t shave it off.

    do whatever you like, it’s your beard, it’s your body and of course in the end your decision…unless of course it will help with your “spring chicken” model for 2015 🙂

    I have seen you on many occasions through Skype: bare faced, with a trimmed beard and also at a stage when it was wild and woolly, I have become used to the trimmed one you now sport. The following link might help to answer the question you ask:

    Keep! Suits you, lends you gravitas.

    Since you linked to the Guardian: I wonder when one of those rather ghastly of their feminist female writers will blame the patriarchy for women not being able to grow beards at will. Still, I suppose nothing that can’t be rectified by a spot of cosmetic surgery employing implants.

    Whether you have a beard or not has to be your decision. I can only say once again that I just find beards and moustaches funny. I couldn’t say why, but that’s the exact opposite of adding gravitas….
