Goatee

So, November marks an annual fundraising effort called "Movember" which is designed to heighten awareness of men's cancer. For reasons I can't explain growing facial hair (beard, mustache, goatee) is part of the effort. And for reasons I really can't explain, I got talked into participating by a colleague and three of us are giving it a shot.

Without further ado, here's what mine looks like 15 days into it. It's a big, fuzzy, itchy mess.

December 1 cannot come soon enough.

AWESOME! glad you are participating in MOVEMBER. the facial hair is supposed to be your Ribbon. a visible sign of your participation in a movement to bring awareness to mens cancer. primarily Prostate cancer. the funding raised goes to Livestrong and the prostate cancer research foundation or something like that.

it's conversation piece like none other. how many people have asked you so far why the heck you are growing out your 'stache and goatee? and the information spreads.

KUDOS for participating!

I heard about Movember last year when i did a college research paper about the effects of the media (FB, Twitter, blogging) on Cancer awareness.

I think it's supposed to be a moustache, not a goatee. Now Howard with a moustache - that's a picture I want to see!

Believe it or not, I am doing it too. But I got a slightly late start.

just shave off the Goatee part and leave a wicked trucker moustache. ;)

Agree with Todd and Crazy Mama - shave off part and keep it as a 'stache. All the hipsters are doing it these days.

You call that a mustache? That's not a mustache. THIS is a mustache: http://bit.ly/nasty_stache
