I'm very convinced that everyone uses the word "professional" so much these days that they've lost track of what it means. When I go to the office, it should matter very little how I look, so long as my "naughty bits" are adequately covered. The fact that I have facial hair different from most folks should not factor into how well I can configure an Outlook client or clean off an ndemon infection. To me, professional is a skill level and attitude. You can dress an asshole/idiot up any way you want and he's still an asshole or idiot... or both. If I can smile at a client, shake their hand, fix their problem, explain how they can prevent future problems, and offer them my future services, whether I wear a pink watch or not should not be an issue. But for some reason an incompetent jerk with the suit and smooth face is more "professional" than me. Oh well, I suppose this puts me somewhere near the standing of a woman in my field of work. Quite odd that a beard puts me in the same category as a woman. Well this bitch is gonna work her ass off to prove that she's more than just another bearded bimbo.

"Though I am old with wandering
Through hollow lands and hilly lands,
I will find out where she has gone,
And kiss her lips and take her hands;
And walk among long dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done,
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun."
--W. B. Yeats
