So I have a job interview/screening on in 2 days, and i have/had an orange mohawk and orange facial hair, which i had to shave off to be "presentable"... but i have had a beard or goatee for the last 6 years and now i feel really, really weird without it. it had a few singes, here and there, but i liked it and now i feel naked. redface



i just felt a need to share this with someone. any sympathizers in the crowd?

Seriously.

I went to a job interview for an after school kids club, looking pretty much like I do in my avatar - body piercings and lime green trousers too - and was surprised when I got the job. The kids loved me, but the teachers at the schools we picked the kids up from really didn't like me.

Shaved my beard off a few days ago because I felt too old. Now I've given up shaving as it grows too fast and I look like a bum unless I shave at least twice a day.

I shaved off my sideburns which I've been growing for about, I don't know, ten months? They were aroundan inch and a half out from my face if I ruffeled them up I think anyhow, in order to plait them scotsmanlike and ow, while it feels rather nice, my face looks slightly the wrong shape to me if viewed front on. Don't tell Saan though cos I'm gonna phone her and use it as a random comment.

You can always get some eyeliner or face paint and daub your face with orange untill the interview Oberon. wink



Edit: And nice job Polarity. smile



Blast! I wrote this just after Flid's laughing post but forgot to click continue. Consider this post an ancient relic.

every since i was 16, i was mistaken for about 21 or 22 (most likely because of my beard) and now, 6 years later, without the beard i look 18. ACK.

I've been accused of being in my thirties for the last decade.. problem is I'm only 24.... frown

am I ageing expotentially?

Oberon... it could be worse you're finding it hard to adjust but let me tell you a story. My father is nicknamed captain Bird's eye. He's had a beard all my life. My mother decided it aged him and harped on at him for years to shave it off.. so one new year's eve a few year's back he decided to surprise her and snuck out of bed in the wee hours of the morning to scrape off god only know's how many years of growth. I was woken that morning by screams and dull thuds. My mother upon woking up and seeing a strange man in bed beside her thought the worst and tried to beat her 'attacker' off with the bedside lamp...

we laugh about it now but mum keeps all the razors in the house under lock and key

Best job I ever had. um.. Only job I ever had, besides temping in factories. Started doing nightshifts at 15 (not allowed till 18 here, so I must have looked real old then).

Kids club was awesome, did teach a bit of poi, but mostly did origami. Gave up on staff after the kids decided it would be more fun to hit me in the nuts with them. Poi wasn't so bad, but it got worse when they could finally swing them straight.

The only bad things about origami were having to make a dozen blow up frogs every night, and being handed a drool soaked frog by a 4 year old with a cold 'cause he couldn't blow it up.

origami rocks - thats what i spend a lot of time doing at my kids club - ive risked the poi but with socks in so no injuries yet smile

looking after kids is the best job if you only do it one day a week - especially when all you have to do is keep them safe and you have a bouncy castle biggrin WOOT

I was doing kids club 5 days a week, for 3 1/2 hours, and it nearly killed me, 5 12 hour nightshifts is a lot easier wink After being cooped up in school all day sitting still, being quiet and listening they just went nuts as soon as they were on the minibus!

We only had a bouncy castle at the end of the school year. When I started they were running it in the kids area of a local pub that had a huge ball pool. Spent a lot of time just collecting balls, or being used for target practice.

What kind of origami do you do? I did a fair bit of modular stuff, so everyone would muck in to make a couple of modules, then I'd assemble the whole lot for them.

I babysat one time and we all fell asleep while watching the Spongebob Squarepants movie for the billionth time. It's ok, all the kids fell asleep too.
My sister's boyfriend is 18 and has a nice little goate going on, he looks very young without it. But he's got it, I'm usually shaven and only 17. So when he got carded at a club one night and I didn't he wasn't all to happy(He's very proud of his chin fuzz)

Don't mind me, just passing through.

Pink carries her passport round every where with her too. But i suspect that is because she fears deportation though.

Which is odd, cos I doubt that Carealot would have her back after all this time....

sorry Oberon I think we've all lost the thread here a little so I'd just like to make a few quick suggestions.....

what to do with a naked face

1. Get everything else naked so you match..(much the same as the' OMG i have to wear matching bra and knickers in case I get hit by a bus today and the doctors see me in my underwear and one of them if young/dark/tall/handsome blah blah blah' syndrome)
2. Shave eyeholes and a nose into the back of your head, paint on eyes/wear dark glasses, wera a hat back to front and walk around backwards until you're old beard grows back.
3. Alternatively, become obsessive and get young virgins to massge vigin olive oil and himalyan mountain yak urine into your facial folicles in an attempt to stimulate growth.
4. Hibernate....

i got a job for the PO once (I had to wear a blouse and pleated skirt eek) anyway, i had to take my piercings out after requests from magagment saying that they would 'scare' customers. as it was our local PO i knew alot of the customers who All complained that they had make me take them out as i didn't look like me. infact most reacted in a shocked way but i don't think the uniform helped with that *Shudders.
then i got another job where i was in the public eye,I also worked along side SS and in both cases i was never asked once to take them out, or dress any different to how i do now. biggrin * misses the job frown

I want a job like that, when I studied at Uni (the first time round) I got into piercings, but unfortunately when you're doing ward rounds the patients don't like it too much so they all had to come out, ever since then I've been meaning to get them done again but I seem to perpetually end up in places where it wouldn't be appproved of. I don't know how I manage it but there you go... one day maybe
