Beardo by rich57

Beardo

Year 2 Day 326
Not sure how long I'll keep this so thought I'd get a beard shot in sooner rather than later. This is actually a true reflection of what I look like at 4am and suffering insomnia!

And seeing as how this is a bathroom mirror how about a classic from The Beat http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_-7fqUMuyg
I can feeeeeel the insomnia!!

Blimey, you've turned into a mad scientist. Is is string theory keeping you awake?
February 8th, 2012  
i'm liking the beard. 4am? blimey!
February 8th, 2012  
Rich, why u not sleeping? i wish you a lovely nights sleep. and a good time with your beard!
February 8th, 2012  
Sorry about the insomnia. Great selfie!
February 8th, 2012  
@fueast Maybe thread theory...
February 8th, 2012  
Hmmm .... that's probably what I look like at 4am too. ;-)
February 8th, 2012  
@dmortega hahaha!
February 8th, 2012  
I fav'd it. But watch out, @robinwarner will be looking for you :)
February 8th, 2012  
@robinwarner @grecican the beard shot, no.1 (maybe in a series of one)
February 8th, 2012  
yay.. the beard! that's a hardcore one at that... well done!
February 8th, 2012  
This is brilliant. Sorry you're not sleeping but you'll have to get in line on that one. But, you look a hell of a lot better at 4 in the morning that I do! Great selfie. (I don't think I will ever do one of those.)
February 8th, 2012  
A few gray hairs there too mate.. :-)

Yeah, yeah... Same here before you have a go haha
February 8th, 2012  
I am favving this in the hope this will make the PP!!!
February 8th, 2012  
@andycoleborn haha was thinking of titling it "Salt 'N' Pepa"!
February 8th, 2012  
if I saw that in an ally, I'd walk the other way! Best song ever btw!
February 8th, 2012  
Dude, you need some sleep!
February 8th, 2012  
cool beardy mate... cool shot
February 8th, 2012  
My hair looks a lot worse than that at 4am, but your beard is much better.
February 8th, 2012  
Hang on, somehow that implies I have a beard, when I was trying to say I don't. Very tired!
February 8th, 2012  
Sorry about the insomnia! Love the mad scientist look in B&W though :-)
February 8th, 2012  
nice selfie. there is definitely something on your mind...
February 8th, 2012  
GREAT song! So glad I don't suffer from insomnia, but I wonder if that is why I work nights haha. Great selfie
February 8th, 2012  
Cracking stuff, knew you were a night owl. But not this much :-|
February 8th, 2012  
hahahaha, excellent shot, i like this type of thing.
February 8th, 2012  
A perfect song to go with this shot. Quite a good selfie but not good to have insomnia.
February 9th, 2012  
Ah fairly scary - counting sheep not working then.
February 9th, 2012  
It's a fav! Love it....the portrait - not the insomnia! The edgy-strong-contrasts really makes me 'feel' your sleep deprivation.
February 9th, 2012  
Ha! Like this selfie :-)
February 9th, 2012  
February 9th, 2012  
OMG! Great song.......but.......the only thing that would improve this I'm afraid are some tassels! :-) You wait til Robin sees this! @robinwarner ! I'm going to fave it to for the PP!!! lol
February 9th, 2012  
@Cherrill yeah I'm up for a tassles/goggles/beard shot but I'm a bit worried I'll have shaved before I find the accessories so I thought I'd get a beard sp in sooner rather than later...
February 9th, 2012  
I think the beard suits you well mate!
February 9th, 2012  
Is this the build up to a Terry waite look-a-like contest? During the hostage years (obs). No sleep ideas I'm afraid - I find pretending to be asleep works (ie you fall asleep whilst pretending..)
February 9th, 2012  
Oh blimey I could have done one then too - I was up having a cup of tea with Nigel who was heading off to Helsinki. No chance of any seep again since a potential disaster with my group flight booking for a karate competition is looming.... You can't get a quote without numbers, you can't get numbers without a quote - having got a quote everybody switched from 2 week stay to 1 week and therefore they cancelled the first booking and had to start again requesting another price which will no doubt be even more... there I must have cured your insomnia now. And I've Faved - Cherrill wants this on PP and who am I to disagree!
February 9th, 2012  
ok..first off thanks for posting the beard shot...totally love it... you look great and i am soooo sorry about the sleeping..there is nothing worse than that...really messes with you and then it gets all in your head....i will be thinking sound sleep thoughts for you for tonight
February 9th, 2012  
Well it's done, this just popped up huge on the PP page haha...
February 10th, 2012  
LOL Greeted by this on PP this morning...hahahha Thanks Judith @judithg Hope this cheers you up Rich.....you've got lots of friends :-)
February 10th, 2012  
OK, everyone has had their wishes granted - PP - and it's a good time of year to be sporting a beard, nice and warm in the Arctic snowy conditions
February 10th, 2012
