    Hey, since we've all been talking about how I come across... Here's Silly EJCC in low-pressure, low-energy situations:

    I just recorded it in lieu of making a video, for the video thread.

    I got the book a little over 2 years ago. http://www.amazon.com/The-Art-Manlin.../dp/1600614620

    After reading the book I was inspired to take up retro shaving: http://artofmanliness.com/2008/01/04...-your-grandpa/

    I got a Merkur 180 razor, a 10 pack of blades, an Omega badger Hair shaving brush, Proraso aftershave, and some Omega shaving soap. I may try Proraso shaving cream next. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...SIN=B001L2U61E

    I don't particularly care about fashion these days. The 1920s-'50s is when men looked awesome, IMHO. If I had serious money to spend on clothes I'd be the most interesting looking guy around.

    What about the early sixties? Pretty similar to the fifties, but since Mad Men has become popular, modern fashion (both for men and for women) has started imitating sixties business attire.

    Just sayin' it'd be easier to get a hold of, for less money. Banana Republic did a Mad Men collection this past spring -- and there are Don Draper style guides everywhere!

    Just for whenever you feel like being the most interesting looking guy around. It's not too late!

    It would be cool, but right now my main focus is just surviving. Sunday I start a new cocktail of antibiotics and I'll also be switching thyroid meds. Yippee.

    Jeez. I'm sorry! I hope the side effects are bearable -- and I hope they work better than your previous meds. Based on how pessimistic you sound, I'm guessing you've had essentially no luck so far?

    Not much. The last 5 years have been like a long and unusually boring episode of House.

    What can I do to help ESTJ feel better? I don't know if "are you ok" and sympathy embarrasses him...I have a feeling it does. I'm never quite sure when he might open up to me and when he's just going to be Mr Stiff Upper Lip. (This is just a friendship, not a relationship, btw.)

    (The weirdest thing happened; I texted him the other night after his presentation as I wanted a) to say it was good, and b) to ask if he was ok as he'd left early afterwards... His response was "Stress got to me. Sorry." Sorry??? I'm still trying to figure that one out.)

    I kind of want to tell him he's an idiot for not doing more to follow doctor's orders, but I'm not sure if that's appropriate either...

    I'm not sure if I have enough information...

    Do you know what happened that's made him feel down? What was the presentation? What did the doctor tell him?

    Oh, I asked you about this guy before, but it was a while ago...sorry

    He's had some pretty serious health problems for the last couple of years. We've known each other about that long but have only been somewhat closer friends for a year or so. As far as I know he's supposed to have reduced stress, alcohol, caffeine, etc and I suspect he has only done so intermittently. (Haven't gone into much detail about that with him recently though.)

    The presentation was related to our church activities. It was just short but he did a good job. But he left pretty quick and I knew he wasn't well. So when I texted him I told him I'd enjoyed it and wondered how he was and got this somewhat mystifying "sorry" response.

    I am worried about him. In response to another text some time ago just saying "how are you, long time no speak" he said "not so good, my health seems to be taking another turn for the worse, clarity is hard to find and the will to exist is somewhat elusive" (or words very close to that effect.)
