This photo was taken in 1955, when my grand-uncle was around my age, which makes it downright spooky.

EDIT: the main difference between this photo and how I look is that I am rapidly going bald

Personal pet peeve: "hoopy" is actually a noun, not an adjective.

Either way, he looks like he really knows where his towel is.

Whereas frood slightly differs in that it is a really amazingly together guy.

So a 'hoopy frood' would be a near-tautology, like 'Amazingly Amazing' or the DORA Department

How unlike Douglas to make a grammatical mistake. However, it can be said that some nouns double as adjectives

I got a haircut. Actually I got 2 haircuts in 3 days. The first one was at a barbers, and it didn't do it for me, too much off one side, not enough off the other. So I got my sister to take off the rest. I think it looks pretty cool, but it took forever because we used the trimmer on my electric shaver. Best haircut I've ever had though, put my tunes on, good banter because it's my sister and I got exactly what I wanted because there was very good communication.

Sarah is the gal for a haircut let me tell you

By now your hair's probably crept up from where you shaved it bald. Does that look even weirder?

Wait a second... you didn't get that haircut before it was cool. So I guess that makes you not a hipster?

I have a subtle but noticeable scar on the bridge of my nose and a similar, but thinner, one just under my nose because I had a habit of falling straight down onto my face when I was little. It's interesting to consider what other people quickly pick up on when looking at you - I really have no idea how noticeable they are.
