Whiskerino 2009

michaeljstraub

is Growing and Showing™

Just putting my signature in the Whiskerino yearbook. It's been a hell of a four months fellas. I enjoyed these past 120 days so much and I have all of you to thank for it. Thanks to @mackle for all his hard work and thanks to everyone for inspiring a side of creativity I didn't know I fully had. Based on that I will not shave. I will continue on to the yeard in hopes to turn my album of 120 pictures into 365.

Keep in touch everyone! Be sure that you add your name to the contact list (the link can be found in the 'About' section)



You Rock Whiskerino, Don't change

Your pictures and comments have made me laugh so much. I've always wanted to go to Atlanta, now I have more reason to do so. It's been a pleasure, sir. Good luck on the yeard.

I love your yearbook and the idea of your yeard. I want my @tedford to grow a yeard, but keep it shaped on the sides. That might not be kosher.

Thanks for the spreadsheet, the good times, the wedgie, that time I left my lunch at home and you shared yours with me, etc.

Stay cool.

Well done. Between you and @yourfavorite I don't think I've ever seen two freshmen come out of the gate with such fervor. Then again, I knew you had it in ya. MJS, you're a solid man and a solid creative.

You had some really great photos over the past 4 months. You also had often posted when I was just getting up, so I'd see your photo first thing in the morning and then start thinking about what I'd do that day. Thanks for all the great comments.
Good luck with the Yeard. I gave it serious consideration, but for a variety of reasons, work included, it's not to be right now. I'd like to follow your progress and see how the Yeard works out for you. It should be awesome! Take care.

She sat at her desk, stealing glances at the furry-faced boy across the room. She desperately wanted him to sign her whiskerino yearbook, but knew that he was recently found in a tub, fully clothed, with a can of spinach on the counter. She couldn't compete with spinach. But she thought she would try.

Their eyes met and she remembered that magic does exist and that life is real and that yearbooks are awesome and that playgrounds are places where people ponder getting married.

They smiled.
