Considering going blonde...

Blonde is for girls. Blond is for boys.  ;)

What is difference? ???

Spelling.
I'm fairly sure this distinction only exists in French.

Only gender specific adjective in the language, if I'm not mistaken.

Last time I checked, celticfan1888 was a male. So, if he wishes to tint his hair a certain pale shade, then that shade would make him blond, not blonde.  :police:

Well, they didn't teach that blonde/blond was gender specific in cosmetology school. I suppose in the hairdressing world it doesn't really matter! The box of hair color isn't gender specific. Furniture is often called "blonde" for a paler wood color as well. I think this is one of those grammar rules that is simply so old that no one will ever use it. Being correct doesn't necessarily mean that it is commonly used.

I am too old to do much adoring.  However, I do believe that the human female is the most beautiful and perfect of God's creation - if one ignores all of the flaws.

I actually don't have any, as I'm usually the one taking the picture, and don't really even take pictures unless I'm going somewhere special, e.g., the zoo. So, uh...I could post some nice pictures of a capybara and some meerkats I hung out with last summer. They're like my spirit animals or whatever: sitting around, looking at stuff, occasionally eating and napping...

Hey, I know * was using circumlocution, but from the photos of your parents to you and your sis, you ARE a good looking family.

And based on the photos you have posted here, you are maturing into a fine looking man.

Just keep eating more. Unlike nearly everyone else here, you could use a few more pounds. You seemed to have put on a few over the last year.

And since I'm on an ESL tear.

FWIW:

That's one of the reasons I usually do not shave myself.

When talking about the regular grooming one does with a razor, shave is better off not being reflective. It sounds odd.

Take one word away and perfecto!

That's one of the reasons I usually do not shave.
