Yep, you guessed it, by this picture I think you can tell how fucking ready I am for this hair to be off of my face. More people are noticing it and commenting, which is kind of good because that means it IS visible, however, it also means complete strangers are noticing it and making assumptions about who I am and what I am about. Let's face it: Mustaches are kinda shady. Not the kind of shady where you cross the street when you see one headed your way but the kind of shady where you wouldn't leave your girlfriend at the bar next to one for fear of unwanted awkwardness. Please, scroll down to Week 1 and donate to my cause. I need it.

I will be the first to admit that my mustache fucking sucks. It is light, uneven, and not growing very fast. at all. however, I have the best friends and family in the world because they have been donating to my pathetic mustache. I have 12 days left and it looks like I haven't shaved in 3 days. I am waiting for my late bloomer facial hair growth spurt, but it ain't coming. I am debating about whether or not I should keep growing it until it reaches a size and shape that I envisioned when taking on this task. I will probably just shave it as soon as I possibly can though. We, as in myself and the other 15 teachers (all of whom have bigger, better mustaches at this point) will be taking a group photo of our accomplishments on December 1st at school. I can't wait for this shit to be over. If anything changes (i.e. sudden spurt of facial hair growth that renders me Selleck-esque), I will be posting immediately on this site, so check back hourly for updates.
The first picture I took was going to be the standard pose for my updates, however I received quite a bit of feedback saying I looked like I was fresh out of the pen (amongst other, more inappropriate responses), so I am trying new poses. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for further poses.

Well, to those of you who are unaware, I am currently participating in what is known as MOvember. For the month of November, I along with a team consisting of other teachers at my school, are growing mustaches for the sake of raising money and awareness for prostate cancer research. yes, you heard correctly. by me growing a mustache, you will donate money to help research prostate cancer. and it's working. but not enough. I need you to donate to me or my team and I need you to tell everyone you know to donate as prostate cancer affects 1 in 6 men in their lifetime. last year, 29,000 men lost their lives to prostate cancer. this is no joke. below you will find the necessary information for donating. I will be updating this with pictures of my mustache for your enjoyment. (please forgive the fact that I have the facial hair growth of a 12 year old)
To donate to my Mo you can either:

The Abominable Snowman!!! That's right faithful readers, the winner of the most attractive man contest between the Abominable Snowman, Bigfoot, Chupacabra, and Ryan Silberman was completed yesterday in a 5-0-0-3 victory in favor of the Abominable Snowman. Bigfoot was reportedly crying in his cave in the woods and the Chupacabra continued drooling the blood of goats and small children it has been eating for centuries while Ryan simply said, "Duh. I knew I was going to lose as soon as I saw the Abominable Snowman listed because he's one handsome fella." That was almost as good as McCain's concession speech last night. Tune in every day as I might actually update this blog again.
