Writer's Block: A Conspiracy of Beards

November is National Beard Month. Muttonchops, Van Dyke, goatee, soul patch, ZZ Top–style—tell us about your own wild and woolly facial fuzz. Even better, post a picture.

Sadly, the only furry growth on my chin is mere peachfuzz. Damn my lack of a Y chromosome! If I was capable of it, I would totally have a fabulous beard. I would probably braid it too. Curses!

Also, since half of these "writer's block" prompts seem to be related to "[Month] is [random concept] month," I declare that November is National Give Ade Five Bucks Month. Just think, if we all pitch in, maybe I can have my kittens spayed and still pay the mortgage on time! It's for the kittens, folks! THINK OF THE KITTENS!

(no subject)

Poor Obama, he lost his grandmother the day before the election. On one hand, it's sad that she won't be alive to watch him triumph, but on the other, she's no longer in pain and is joining the rest of her family in the afterlife. "You're just in time," they'll say, "We're having a voting day party! Look at our boy go!" So she'll be happy now. As for Obama, while this may be a difficult time, bad and good things often happen close together, because life is weird like that. I'm pretty sure he's going to win tomorrow. When my Pop Pop died, I got kittens the next day. His grandma just died, and he'll be elected President the next day. It's a weird juxtaposition. Well, here's to her! She raised one hell of a grandson. And here's to him, may he triumph tomorrow!

1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.
2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.
3. Include these instructions, and share the love.

I'd post recent kitten pictures, but for some reason, my camera cable isn't working. So you get this instead:
