That sheep shot struck me as funny in light of Eric's annual big shearing event yesterday. Eric shaves after the Superbowl every year. He goes clean-shaven through the spring and summer. As soon as college football starts, he starts growing his beard again. He claims that each year he is surprised at how much gray has come in, but I still see mostly brown and red in his beard. (I will not be happy until "the Santa-fication" is complete!)

Grey hair has its charm I think. I'm starting to develop grey hairs here and there already too...

I just need the white hair and the costume I'm told and I'd almost look like Santa Claus, not that I want to that is.

Actually, Eric has lost quite a bit of weight lately. He started out doing it correctly with a rule of "no potatoes at lunch". This eliminated French fries (aka "chips"), chips (aka "crisps") and hash browns when he went out to eat with colleagues or brought in a lunch. He was losing weight slowly and in a healthy fashion until super stress from another project hit, and suddenly he is all skin and bones! It is terrible, and a bad reflection on my cooking, I say!!!

LOL Angela. Fair play to Eric though. I'm dieting too. I already have lots of stress in my life though and it's not helping me lose weight!

Stress affect different people's weight in different ways. For most people a sudden spike in stress levels causes weight loss, but for a few they put on weight.
A sudden reduction in stress level will often trigger a short lived weight loss, followed by a gradual weight gain.
All this assuming there is no other change in diet or lifestyle.

I overeat when I'm stressed, or not stressed, or when I'm bored.

A teacher once told me find the one thing you can do, and do it well.

I have a similar ritual. Traditionally I start cultivating facial hair on or around Halloween, then shave most of it off on my birthday in April. I have reached full "Santa-fication", save a couple dark patches on my chinny-chin-chin. While this does mitigate the Santa effect, it tends to create that Purvis the skunk look. This year, however, due to circumstances beyond my control, all but the mustache and chin whiskers may be coming off ahead of schedule.
