A friend's comment, on seeing me dressed up in my ballroom competition outfit, with shorter and neater hair than usual:
"Wow! You look great! In fact, I didn't even recognize you!"
Speaking of different looks, I now think my decision to shave off my mustache was long overdue, and wince when I see my mustachioed LJ picture. If anyone takes a good picture of me without the mustache that I can use to replace the current icon, please let me know.
