Final Mustache Update!

Well, Movember is coming to a close, and this is my final plea for you to donate a couple bucks for research to fight prostate and testicular cancer.  I alienated my loved ones and made strangers uncomfortable all month long with my attempted mustache.  Please make up for their sacrifices by contributing to this excellent (and tax-deductible) cause.

Here's a reminder of what Movember is all about.  From the Movember website:
The Movember Effect: Awareness & Education, Survivorship, Research
The funds raised in the US support prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Together, the three channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in line with our strategic goals in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.
For more information on the programs we are funding please visit the following:

The next time I do a mustache-related post will be when I shave this scraggly thing off my face, as part of a "Shave-Off" event, sponsored by Phillips Norelco.  Some of the guys on Team Dad 2.0/Man of the House/NYC Dads Group/DadCentric/DadLabs are participating in this for laughs and to give Phillips Norelco some props and publicity, since they have agreed to match the funds we have raised, up to $15,000!

I have to say that I'm ambivalent about getting rid of my mustache.  It's the first intentional facial hair I've had since an ill-advised goatee in 1991, and it's been refreshing to see a different face in the mirror.  The other day my wife even said, "I don't hate it as much as I thought I would."

Sometimes, it doesn't look too bad:



Not psycho

But, as I said in the last update, it only looks good from a safe distance.  What my wife and kids see is often something more like this:

Maybe with a little more time, and a visit to a groomer, it would settle down.  But it'll be gone by tomorrow, so we may never know.

So there's the spiel.  Please go to my Movember space and drop a couple shekels in the can.  Thanks! 

Some Other Places I've Written Lately 

At Man of the House, I explored perhaps one of the most important questions you can ever ask yourself: what kind of material should I use to build my deck?

Also at Man of the House, I got all deep and powerful when discussing nail guns.  If you want one for Christmas, you need to read this article.


  1. "I got all deep and powerful while discussing nail guns."

    ::slow clap::

  2. @Two Busy--I tackle topics that others shy away from. You have no idea how much I wept writing and re-writing that. But it was worth it for all the lives I saved.

  3. You haven't developed that stroking that long time moustache wearers have... My husband would constantly smooth his moustache whenever he was thinking...that's all yours needed... I think u should keep it...Its 'winter' and your upper lip will get cold! lol

  4. You can always grow a practice 'stache in the off-season.

  5. Sorry Beta, no matter which picture I look at, you always look sinister.

  6. 3rd photo is pretty creepy lol. Just kidding nice `stache.


Don't hold back.
