what's up, doc?





Yesterday morning I had a beard and no PhD. Today I have a PhD and no beard.

All communications may be addressed to Dr Steel.

Ironically, you now look much less like a Doctor.

If I was you I'd change my last name to 'Octopus'. I like the sound of Dr. Octopus.

Congratulations, Dr Steel! Shall dedicate my evening beer to saying cheers to you.

Congratulations, my good sir!

I think I speak for all your readers by demanding a blow-by-blow account of your harrowing ordeal. Let no blow go unaccounted!

I also feel obliged to point out that Dr Steel is the perfect name for an evil genius. Now all that remains is for you to choose your nemesis! James Bond? Batman? Spongebob Squarepants? Choose wisely, my dark and twisted friend.

Did you do the no shaving until you're finished thing? I did that, but then couldn't bring myself to shave off my beard when I finished, and now I still have it three and a half years later.

Congrats Dr Steel, by the way!

Well, I did the no shaving thing for a while, but after a while it got a bit "homeless meets roadkill", so I allowed myself to trim it.

I think longer-term it'll be back, but I held people off on the pretense that the beard stayed until the PhD arrived, so I figured I had to shave it off, at least temporarily.

Too right you had to shave it off. You won't be kissing me anytime soon if that monster reappears.
