Movember Week 1 Update
By Sensesless Thinking
So we are one week into our attempt to look ridiculous/raise money for a great cause and I am just starting to taste the moustache hairs in my mouth.
It must be said that it was a slower start to the process than I had anticipated but by the end of day 3 the mo was starting to show. Soon I found passers by taking a second glance before seeming to disapprove of my ‘dirty’ appearance. I also begun to find the same question posed to me, "so are you doing Movember?" Yes I am, and now that it is starting to look like an actual moustache I am facing a big decision… Should I style my mo into a ‘Kirk Pengilli?’
8 days into Movember and I have had to trim my moustache back 12 times. If I had not trimmed it people would be accusing me of cheating.
I disagree with Adam that our aim is to look ridiculous. I think our aim is to look like Tom Sellick, which is awesome! But I do agree that it is a good cause (looking awesome is just one of many benefits).

Movember, despite all its good intentions, has been a bit disheartening for me so far. Is it that I really can’t grow a moustache? No, and it’s not that I’m not allowed to grow my beard out for a month. It’s the people that come up to me, look me in the face and say: “how’s the moustache coming?” Fantastic! In fact last night I had to trim it because it was getting caught in my belt buckle! I think I feel a rant coming on…
Anyway, I have since scrapped my original idea for a style and am looking for something new. What style does a guy who can only grow a sparse few hairs on their upper lip grow?

So it turns out I can't grow a moustache. I can't please a woman either, but do I let that stop me from trying? Absolutely. But this is for charity, dammit!
We're only a week in at this point, but I've already had to readjust my goals. I no longer think I'm capable of pulling off the 'Panayot Hitov'.
So now I'm just aiming to do better than Lanky. I think I'm safe there.
