An Early Start
So, it’s that time of year again and after a brief hiatus in 2011, I’ve thrown down the gauntlet to my colleagues to join me in having a crack at Movember, in aid of Prostate Cancer, obviously.
I have been sporting about ten days or so of beard until this morning and so decided to have a trial run with some alternatives to the handlebar – to see if I can improve on previous attempts. In short, if there was an event called Mocktober, I would have won hands down. It wasn’t what you might call “successful” and consequently I am clean shaven again, as is a must for the official start of Nov 1st.
Consequently, some things have become clear:
- I don’t suit a moustache on it’s own – supporting facial hair is required (Tom Selleck, Burt Reynolds and Sam Neill are clearly princes amongst men for being able to rock that look unaided).
- My wife has a thing for Jason Lee and the drummer from the Killers. NB – it has to be said that there’s an uncanny resemblance:
- It always feels like a great idea at first but there will undoubtedly be some moments mid month when people ask nervously what the hell is wrong with my face and/or I meet senior people for the first time who question my judgement, again based on my temporary facial hair choices.
Still, there’s much fun to be had. Apologies for the naked Ron Jeremy picture but I just had to post this article (10 Moustache Styles That Must Be Stopped) and this great vid…
