Boys of ‘Movember’ + Five Senses Monday

In certain circles, there is no hiding the emerging coolness of men with beards and mustaches. November is here, and that means we’re in the midst of celebrating “Movember,” “NovemBEARD” and “No-Shave November.” Boys are looking scruffy, lumberjack-esque and, some, even slightly creepy with their ’70s porn-star ‘staches. It’s fun, and if I were a guy, I’d join in the festivities too. I like how someone put it on No Shave November:

“There are two kinds of people in this world that go around beardless – boys and women – and I am neither one.”

On Friday night — in the name of work — I went to a Mo (slang for mustache) mixer. There were lots of jokes, ‘stache laughter and even Mo merch. Here are a few pics of the boys of Movember.

And now, it’s time for Five Senses Monday (where I reflect on the weekend through the senses).

Feeling:
Like a need a weekend to recover from my weekend that included second-shooting a wedding Saturday and cleaning my dad’s entire house on Sunday (for Portland spending money, of course).

Smelling:
The teasing smell of a banana nut bread candle.

Hearing:
A little Vampire Weekend and Mates of State (MoS disappointingly reminds me of “Glee” now. Sad.). But thanks Mag for the new music.

Tasting:
Pizookie (BJ’s cookie with ice cream). Chicken Nuggets. Egg Nog shake. Leftover tacos. Two mochas. Steak with grilled mushrooms and melted Swiss…Yum. Not all at once, of course.

Seeing:
Not very wall on the river road as rain fell hard on my way home from the wedding Saturday night. But one leg in the leg and some French fries later, we made it.

  1. So lovely. Great cover idea or greatest cover idea? I think I will wear my fake mustache today in celebration.
    Also, did you know we are heading to the land of beards and mustaches in 3 DAYS!?!
