Movember in australia is both the greatest and worst time of the year. Why? Because nearly every man (and indeed a number of women) grow as big a moustache as possible for a month and if there is one thing I enjoy, it is growing a mo'. The idea being that you must be clean shaven as at 1 November and the rest is left up to your artistic interpretation.
The bad part : Thanks to the Irish heritage, my mo' is very poor at growing either quickly or without chunks missing from it. So I end up each year with some cobbled together coverage that by the time I reach the end of the month has most people calling me 'Sanchez' and asking me for peso's.
However it is all in for a good cause and I was able to raise nearly $500 for research in to prostate cancer (which I may add is a more common cancer than breast cancer). But to ensure the ladies are missing out on their own moment in the sun, a few of the girls I know will be taking part in Fanuary.
If any Americans need to know more about this I will be happy to explain further.
