Day 55: Beardless, Wake Up San Francisco, Ferris Club

My beard was getting a little out of control and it was time to either trim it or get rid of it. As much as I love the convenience of not shaving my entire face every day when I have a beard, I realize it is still summer time and it's probably a better idea to hold off on a heavy beard until the fall.

Plus, the gray. All of that gray!

So there's only one thing for a guy to do when he shaves his beard off. It's a requirement to do this at least once every few years. And that's this.

I tried to get Amy to go for the mustache. She wasn't having it.

We spent a pretty good chunk of the day hanging out at my in-law's while we had two house showings going on at our place.

I haven't said much about our house throughout the summer and that's because there's not been much to say. Knocking on wood as I type this, we do currently have potential buyers with some pretty serious interest. We'll see how this plays out.

With summer break winding down quickly and the new school year knocking on my door, I've been trying to think of ways to shake things up at work this year. Nothing major -- just small changes to my typical routine to make this school year seem a little different. Part of that daily routine revolves around coffee. I pour a cup every day within five minutes of arriving and tend to drink coffee throughout each morning. Having used the same coffee cup at work for a few years now, I decided it was time to retire my fading Mister Rogers' Neighborhood mug and start the year off with something new.

Some of you are familiar with Wake Up San Francisco. The rest of you are and you probably just don't realize it.

Speaking of things that are awesome, my pal Shawn from the Branded in the 80s site recently shared a video that simply blew my mind.

You've seen Fight Club? You know, Edward Norton's character is depressed and suffering from insomnia when he meets Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) who joins him in forming the underground Fight Club. (Spoiler Alert!) Late in the film, viewers realize that Norton's character and Tyler Durden are actually the same person who has hit rock bottom and suffering from a split-personality disorder.

While there is not movie that I've seen nearly as many times as I have The Karate Kid, second place on my list of most-often-watched movies no doubt goes to Ferris Bueller's Day Off. So how about this split personality scenario: Cameron Frye (slightly depressed and nearing a meltdown in FBDO) and Ferris Bueller are one and the same!

Wait. What?

Mind. Blown.

The Summer of Tim continues...
