Dave!This morning I was working in bed, trying to get the hang of my new 3-D modeling software, when the electrical power went out. This didn't matter much to me, because I was working on a laptop with a full battery.

But the power never came back on.

I needed to take a shower and get to work, but nothing was happening. Eventually I decided to just bite the bullet and take a shower in the darkness of my windowless bathroom. I mean hey, I pretty much know where all my body parts are, so how difficult could it be? In fact, it might end up being big fun!

Uhhh... yeah.

Showering in the dark is not nearly as entertaining as you would think.

Not only did I lose one of my contact lenses, but I think I ended up washing my hair with facial scrub, and I'm pretty sure there's still shampoo in places where shampoo should not be.

But that wasn't the worst part.

The worst part was that I accidentally went to work with a fauxhawk...

LEFT: My normal mess. RIGHT: accidental fauxhawk in the dark.

When I finally noticed it, I was really embarrassed.

But then I started thinking that this is a look I can totally pull off.

Now I just need to dye it pink...

    That’s a hot hawk! I say you shower (at my house) in the dark (at my house) all the time.

  2. Tori says:

    ooohhhh… I may have to play with that look… if I do I’ll send you the pics!

  3. sizzle says:

    I rather like the faux hawk. It looks pretty hawt.

  4. SFChick74 says:

    No one at work said anything? If one of my coworkers walked in with their hair out of its normal style, I would definitely notice and a fauxhawk deserves a “What’s with the new look?” comment at the very least.

    Of course, a fauxhawk in my office would subject the wearer to an unending stream of heckles.

  5. NYCWD says:

    Why is “Anarchy in the UK” playing in my head?

    Do pink with white tips. That’d be a hawtty hawk.

  6. Robin says:

    But it totally works! This could be a new look for you!

  7. Iron Fist says:

    Generally, I like it. Maybe you can get your ears pierced, too.

  8. Hilly Sue says:

    You look totally hardcore and hot. Love it.

  9. ChillyWilly says:

    Much better than what Matthew Broderick did in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”

  10. Winter says:

    That’s a very “street” look for you. I can see you out clubbing in that do. Washing the wrong parts of your body with face scrub kinda sucks tho.

  11. Penelope says:

    With a widow’s peak like that (v. jealous!) I’m thinking, go gold and be Ming the Merciless ;o)

  12. Göran says:

    you need stretched earlobes and some serious tattoos to go with your new style.

  13. Karl says:

    I wouldn’t want to meet you in a dark alley, dude. You look TOUGH. I mean, except for the kissy face.

  14. whall says:

    Oooh! A teletubbie!

  15. adena says:

    But, is it really a fauxhawk when you have like .5 inches of length to your hair?

    Either way, it’s pretty hot. (And showers in the dark…I think might freak me out. Hmm. I’ll have to test that theory.)

  16. Mr. Fabulous says:

    No matter what look you sport, you are a very, very pretty man.

  17. Avitable says:

    A little touch-up, and you could totally go out looking like that:

  18. *pixie* says:

    What about a candle? Then it could be a romantic shower. wink, wink, nudge, nudge

  19. kapgar says:

    Dude, you are so ready to be on American Idol!

  20. Miss Britt says:

    I would have never guessed you have a widow’s peak.

  21. Dave2 says:

    I don’t, really… that’s my fauxhawk drooping down over my forehead… it’s kind of hard to see in that photo because my camera isn’t that great in low light.

  23. Lewis says:

    So, let’s just toss caution to the wind here for a minute……how upset with me would you be if I told you, honestly, that I love the new hawk look? Seriously. I’m digging it. And I got to thinking about that facial scrub on your wee-wee….and hope it didn’t hurt.

  24. Colin Brooks says:

    You can totally pull off a fauxhawk just don’t do that thing with your lips. 😛

    Also, I laughed out loud with your post. Sorry…

    By the way, next time spend a little more time under the water to make sure all the soap (from all the funny places) has been rinsed off. I had something funny to say while I was reading this but now I’ve forgotten so pretend I just said something funny…

  25. Dustin says:

    Fauxhawk + Blue Steel look = teh sexy.

    This is good practice for NYC.

  26. damn, my shower in the dark turned out even worse than that. stupid hot water heater apparently needs electricty. brrr!

    dave, you can rock that look quite well.

    (although i am giggling @ adam!!)

  27. kilax says:

    It totally works, as long as you keep that sexy pout.

  28. Yeah, tattoos would definitely complete the ensemble 😉

  29. Sandie says:

    I love the ‘hawk! My son asks for a fauxhawk at least once a week…this after having had a real one for months. 🙂

  30. Foo says:

    Some fauxs look emo, you just look McTough with a side of hot.

  31. Robert says:

    No window in the bathroom? I don’t think I could live somewhere like that. What do you open for fresh air when someone lays a stinker in there?

  32. claire says:

    You can totally rock that look.

  33. Alex says:

    What with the number ticket porn-pose and the pouty fauxhawk look you’re really spoiling us with the visuals Dave. You’re just working up to those shirtless shots aren’t you? 😉

  34. Lisa says:

    OMG, I’m sooo sorry but Adam’s remake of your fauxmohawk made me laugh so hard my chest hurts.

    I feel inspired to find some Aquanet…

  35. Whit says:

    I was rocking the fauxhawk a couple of years ago. I like it- I’m just losing too much hair for it to work for me.

    Keep it. You look edgy.

  36. No. Just don’t do it, man. DON’T.

  37. Belinda says:

    I am still trying to figure out HOW you did that. You look like a “Top Chef” contestant.

  38. Dude. Seriously. Face wash? What a metro.

  39. joy says:

    I actually like the fauxhawk better 🙂

  40. ROFL @Avitable! Rock the hawk, Dave!
