Movember has begun, and I'm behind

  • November 02, 2007

We're in the month of Movember. What? Yep, Mo-vember:

“During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I’ll be growing a Mo (slang for Moustache). That’s right I’m bringing the Mo back because I’m passionate about men’s health and the fight against prostate cancer.

And there is even a dedicated donate directly -- all donations are made directly to the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada. This strikes pretty close to home: my dad has been having trouble with his prostate, so this means a lot to me.

And, er, yeah: here's the thing...I haven't gone "mo free" yet. I still have a beardy face. So I'm behind in the race to grow the best mo. I'll get that taken care of this weekend...it needs special implements.

I'm especially impressed with Stephanie, who is being a "mo ho" (as opposed to "mo bro" for the men) -- she is going to fashion some sort of yarn moustache throughout the month. Andy Smith is inaugurating his first month at Google by going mo. Kris is off in China, so he hasn't been around to whip up support this year.
