Movember Week 3

I did not know how my Movember would turn out. It has been quite a few years since I have gone more than a couple days without shaving. My previous foray in beardom was about ten years ago when I had a soul patch. If you don't know what a soul patch is, click here.

It's okay, I'll wait.

When Movember started, I resigned myself to looking like a 70s porn star. I feared I would look like a Village People. I hoped to look like Magnum P.I.. I may look more like Wilford Brimley.

It's odd. My hair is brown. My moustache, red. My soul patch is blonde and my beard a mix of everything. Yes, that's right. My beard is plaid. Happy Movember.
Movember Week 3


  1. Clearly you're the result of a strange, yet oddly successful genetic experiment in breeding multi-colored people. Or maybe your upper lip is Irish.

  2. I swear I will send you $5 if promise to never sport a soul patch again.

  3. Z, and my hair colour is 'receding'. I may be part Irish, and that part is my name.

    C, I sported the soul patch quite well. Or so my girlfriend at that time said. Then again, she did dump me. Ya, I'll take the $5.

    M, That's not the funny part. It's also made of corduroy.

  4. Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of facial hair... although I have to admit I'm crazy about the short little chin beard Mike Mills started growing in the mid-1990's.
    (Probably because I'm obsessed with Mike Mills in general).

    You can see it here and here, on my Tumblr.

    (*happy sigh*)

    What? Yes... yes, I did indeed make a Tumblr blog which is 100% devoted to R.E.M. (and particularly Mike Mills).

    We all have to be obsessed about something in our middle age, right?

    It was either that or graham crackers, and I hate having crumbs in the bed.

    1. If you are confused, check with the sun
      Carry a compass to help you along
      Your feet are going to be on the ground
      Your head is there to move you around

  5. Finally, someone who understands!

    Or at least someone who can quote R.E.M. lyrics.

    I'll take it.
