This weekend I took my New Face out for a spin. Mostly it went well — there were a few Schlockers at Fantasy Rules on Saturday who didn’t recognize me at first, and there were a LOT of people at Church who didn’t recognize me. Nobody exhibited the bad taste of the few members of the online community who’ve deigned to insist that I put the beard back. There were even a few people who said the new look is better.
I still haven’t gotten around to drawing a new avatar for myself. In the meantime, I’ll just borrow one from Corporate America.
