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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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….
