Movember

Posted on 27.11.09 Comment

For most people it’s approaching the end of November, but for me its approaching the end of Movember.

For those not in the know:

“Movember is an annual, month-long celebration of the moustache, highlighting men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer. Mo Bros start Movember (November 1st) clean shaven and then have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their moustache. During Movember, each Mo Bro effectively becomes a walking billboard for men’s health and, via their Mo, raises essential funds and awareness for Movember’s men’s health partner – The Prostate Cancer Charity.”

Now I’ve had to walk around looking a little bit silly for a month (which has felt like the longest month on earth). It wouldn’t have been so bad if I drove to work – then I could hide in my car and hide in the office. Unfortunately, I take the train to work so that means for 2 hours everyday I’m in the public eye, with this ‘slug’ on my top lip (as my girlfriend lovingly calls it).

Furthermore, this month has also been a month of bumping into people I haven’t seen in a while, and making new acquaintances – all with this thing on my face. It’s pretty tough fitting in “I don’t usually have a moustache” early on in the conversation.

So the least you people could do is sponsor me, no matter how little you can give. I’ve raised £105 so far, which is pretty good, but I want more!

No offence if you rock a Mo normally, it just doesn’t suit my face.
