I won’t lie and say I’m going to miss this mustache.  I hate it.  I hate how it makes me look and I hate how strangely people look at me for having it, so I’m awfully glad that it’s coming off tomorrow morning and I can grow my familiar beard back over the next week or so.

Still, it’s been for a great cause, and I’ll never wonder what I would look like with a mustache.  Now I know I look like an extra from a spectacularly bad 1970’s cop drama.  Imagine the face below as a purse snatcher in the on-set jail on Barney Miller.  Abe Vigoda totally would have worked me over with a phone book during commercial breaks

A Fine Mustache

I’ve got lots of photos to keep me from growing a ‘stache in the future, but I’d like to think that my facial ‘ribbon’ helped raise some awareness and badly-needed funds to help find a cure for prostate cancer and to spread the word to all the gents out there of what to look out for and how to seek treatment early on if they experience any of the symptoms.

If you’ve already donated to me (or anyone, for that matter), I want to say thanks.  If you haven’t, it’s not too late.  Just head on over to my Movember profile and make a donation and leave a witty remark.  If you donate $47,400 you’ll put me in the individual leader position for all of Canada!  I’m currently ranked about 30,000th in Canada for donations (out of nearly 120,00) and I don’t anticipate I’ll make up much ground in the next 24 hours.  Mind you, it’s not a contest.  It’s just a bunch of dudes growing mustaches for a great cause.

Here’s a few more photos to remember this great month by.  Sorry they’re a little out of focus.
