Or should I say “MOVEMBER”?
Amy doesn’t know about this yet…otherwise, we’d have another catch phrase “what are you doing video” here!! I am sure by mid-November I’ll be sleeping on the couch!!
November 1 starts the month of Movember. Don’t know what it is? Well neither did I until a few years ago. Apparently, the month of November has for all practical purposes become the month of Movember, a celebration of the moustache…aka the ‘mo’. Leave it to a few Aussies and some beers to come up with a way to bring the moustache back ‘in’ and bring it back as a way to highlight some aspect of men’s health. You can read a bit more about it here.
We all know that the Doc saw the ‘real’ doc awhile back…this post from the Doc as well as some little nuggets on the forum here and there! And, one of my good friends from Austin had a similar appointment with a doc some 10 years ago as well. So, on October 21, 2010 I signed up as an official participant in Movember in honor of Doc and Rainer. Officially the money raised in Movember goes to the Prostate Cancer Foundation as well as Livestrong.
It’s official. Let’s shoot for $1,000 at least. That gets me to the Platinum Club and a copy of Debrett’s Guide for the Modern Gentleman that I’ll be sure to pass around at the next training camp. BUT, I am sure we can do better than that…the question is how much better? Click here to donate and see my ‘mo-space’ that will be updated as we go!
I’ll document my progress here. I just have to decide on the stylistic approach that I will take. There are definitely several options; however, I may be limited by the speed of my facial hair growth as I am supposed to start November 1 clean shaven…all donations must be in by December 9, 2010 at 5pm EST.
I did a little research for stylist suggestions, and you would not believe the number of websites dedicated to the mustache…or moustache!
The Hulk Hogan…possibly, but without the gray. I call this one the ‘truck-stache’.
The Magnum P.I…my mom likes this one…actually I think it is less the stache and more the guy.
The Wyatt Earp Mustache…no time or desire for this one!!
The Freddie Mercury mustache…probably better suited to Stephen since he looks more like Freddie.
The Pre mustache…definitely ‘fast’!
And last but not least…the baby stache…
There you go…stay tuned for updates!
