This was a completely unconscious decision to begin with, but has developed into one of my favourite ideas in this experiment thus far. I am working from home for the month of November and therefore have spent most of my days in pajamas or the equivalent. This also means that shaving has gone out the window. I live in Canada and it is starting to get cold. I no longer wear any piece of clothing that shows my bare legs (except for my 3/4 length track pants that I wear to bed), so I stopped shaving about the time that I last had to go into the office (which was over a week ago).
Frankly, I am of the opinion that shaving while you are single in the winter is one of the most futile activities in which a woman can participate. What's the point?! It makes you colder and it is a pain in the butt (or in the leg, in cases of razor burn - ouch!). The only reason to do it is if you have some event where you have to wear a dress or you are going to some sunny destination. Luckily, no such event exists for me in November. So, I'm on a shaving strike. I'm thinking of it as my own form of Mo-vember - Grow-vember.
I fully support the Movember cause, we should definitely support men's health and health awareness, but by the time the end of the month rolls around, I start to wonder what happened to all the good looking men in the city - they all seem to be replaced by trolls with dead animals on their face. Don't get me wrong, I'm a lover of facial hair!! A beard is almost a mandatory pre-requisite for dating me. But... so many guys have no business rockin' a moustache and Movember forces the rest of us to spend our days staring at these unfortunate gentlemen. Good times were had by none (well, except for those guys that think it's super cool to flaunt their gross handlebar 'stache - ick!).
So, to show my solidarity (and because no one will be taking my pants off during this month), I am growing my leg hair! And don't think for a second that I'm one of those lucky fair-haired girls that can let it grow for a month and still be barely visible - oh no, I am a coarse, thick, shave-every-2-days girl! Yuppers! Here we go! Once it starts to get really gross, I'll post some pictures...
