Movember’s Marriage Saving Shaving [Video]

Something cool happened yesterday. Philips Norelco sent me (along with everyone else on Doug French’s Movember team) a Vacuum Stubble & Beard Trimmer and a SensoTouch 3D Shaver. But you know what was even cooler? That they kicked in $15,000 to our team’s fundraising efforts which means that this Movember, we raised over $34,000 which will go directly toward the fight against prostate and testicular cancer.

Yet, perhaps coolest thing still is that by providing me something with which to shave off my ‘stache, Philips Norelco quite possibly just saved my marriage. And I documented the momentous, marriage-saving shave via a three-minute video. And all you Caroline fans? I have a feeling you’ll be quite pleased with her performance in said video. It’s priceless.

All I Want For Christmas is to Lose This ‘Stache

See that picture above? It’s what I look like. Normally, that is. And while I’m certainly not saying that I’m the most handsome man in the world, I am saying this: I look a hell of a lot better in that picture than I do right now. For right now, I’m typing this post with what I belive to be the most deplorable moustache of all time. And if you’d like to see it, all you gotta do is click “read more.”

Married with a Moustache: When Movember Meets Matrimony

This is not mine. My moustache is way lamer.

Is it December yet? Because my upper lip is starting to bug the hell outta me. You see, I’m taking part in Movember, which means I’m growing a moustache (or mo) for the entire month of November (hence “Movember”), thereby drawing attention to men’s health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer. (Wanna donate to the cause?) And while I’m honored to be one of the “Mo Bros” on Doug French’s Movember team, I gotta admit that it’s not going so great.

Wanna Touch My Moustache?

The before shot.

So, how’s your Movember going? Mine’s going quite well, thank you very much. Well, except for the fact that my wife has threatened to leave me. You know, because of this whole moustache thing I’ve got going on. Don’t get me wrong. She’s loves the sentiment behind it. And what’s not to love? I’m leveraging social media for social good by drawing attention to men’s health issues (prostate cancer chief among them) by growing a moustache, then blogging, tweeting and posting Facebook updates about it. My hope, of course, is that you’ll support my efforts (as well as those of the other men on my team) by making a donation.

So, yeah, Caroline loves the sentiment behind it. Yet, still, she’s married to me which means she’s (presumably) attracted to me. And those of you who have either seen Caroline or know her in real life already realize what a coup that is. Sadly though, the coup is being threatened as it seems as if this sickly-looking caterpillar I’m sporting is all but extinguishing said attraction.

Joining the Fight Against Prostate Cancer No Matter How Stupid I Look Doing It

I meant to post this on November 1, but it’s been a hectic week:

Did y’all know that in some circles, the month of November is known as MOvemeber. Why? Because it’s a play on the word MOustache (which, incidentally, is hard to spell…). You see, each year more and more men choose to grow a moustache during November as a way of honoring the fight against prostate cancer, an organized effort known simply as Movember, thus making the moustache analogous to the pink ribbon of breast cancer. And this MOvember, I’m teaming up with a group of well-known and well-respected male bloggers to help fight the good fight.
