And so there you have it - a picture of man who's gone through the woods and come out second-best. And with a fetching 'stache.
I may not have raised the most amount of dosh (the pissing contest of the fundraising part of this gig was never my bag), but with my rollercoaster of health issues over the month of November, I've been in the rather fortuitous position of being able to have open, honest and stark conversations about men's health with mates, work colleagues, associates and (on a rather bizarre afternoon) a couple of deros down the road. And that's what this Movember Malarky really is all about - raising real awareness amongst us blokes that getting that weird little lump, or that strange feeling in the nads region, or that not-quite-happy feeling in noggin, checked out. It's the difference between being a bloke and being a dickhead.
Oh, and finishing up the month by being delivered a clean bill of health is fucking tops.

Well before you know it the month ofMovember is nearly over - it seems to have flown past. My mo has been getting very prickly lately and Sweet Thang just veers away whenever I come close to kissing her. However the baby just smiles...
Have been getting a lot of support from peopel at work and have gotten over the $400 mark in donations which is fabulous. About to try the whole last days promotion to try and get over 500 bucks...
Even gave Naut a $10 sympathy donation for his birthday as it just won't do for our gallant Errol Flyn like captain to not raise any funds at all.

It still looks pretty narrow, so I am tipping I will end up with the Errol once again.
Actually the more I look at that =>>> photo, the more I become concerned about the world weary eyes staring back than the childish state of my Mo. So if you don't want to donate to the Mo, donate to bring back the youthful sparkle to my eyes (or at least to convince me to wear sunglasses next photo).
The All-stars's Mos that I see around work and on this blog are really starting to show the splendour you would expect from gentlemen of this calibre. Bob is running true to form and spanking all in the donations stakes, while sporting a Mo that would make a British prison guard proud!
Al and Ben are showing the benefits facial folicle experience while I am keenly awaiting Bart's next animal installment (I am hoping for something in the poisoneness reptile range). We haven't seen anything from Charles of the West as yet, is he lulling us into a false sense of security????
To the work guys, feel free to post something here and then link it to facebook, twitter, tumbler, myspace (you still use that????), google+, etc. You have all been sent an invite, but feel free to ask if you aren't sure what to do.

So the eminent Guru Bob reckons this is all about fundraising, eh? Well I say pish tosh to that. He's simply obfuscating, deflecting and playing the ole switcheroo to distract us from the fact that he is so lacking in testosteroney goodness that his mo is a mere shadow. Ladies - I present you with the benchmark of manliness, day 6. See it and swoon, fuckers.
I seem to have something in my eye.

I have decided to take part in this year's Movember after letting my upper lip have a rest in 2010. It seems to have worked as I now have a farly good fuzzy growth after only two days on the job...
This year I am posting photos of myself in front of various local landmarks and will see how that works as a marketing tool for garnering donations, which is what it all about really.
Thanks to PNB's generosity I have already pawned my fellow team members on the fundraising front - will be waiting a while for any of them to get above the zero dollars mark I reckon - that is the real competition! From recollection I raised more funds then the entire Magnum P.I. All Stars all on my onw last time we went head-to-head - or is it mo-to-mo??? This time I have joined with the enemy and we are working together to raise funds for the cause...
Gentlemen - are you ready for a race to the $500 mark??

It's been a few years since I've seen my chin. Must say, since the trim this morning I can't get used to it. The thoughtful beard-stroke is now a gesture of outright wankiness (it was suave beforehand, you see), looking off into the middle distance with that pensive stare now just looks like I'm constipated, and that seriously funny gag of letting the cappuccino froth settle in the top lip bristles sadly falls flat.
The ladies at work are going to shit bricks when I rock up in the morning.

It's a good thing I tend to start slow, pity I tend to finish slow as well!
This should be a great Movember with a team of 10 as of today, thanks to a great response from my workplace. Guys, feel free to post updates here and if I haven't sent you an invite then just ask. Remember the slogan "the best or nothing", I have nothing covered so I am relying on you guys for the best.
IMPORTANT NOTE: All posts accompanied by a photo with an All-stars team member sporting a Hawaiian shirt (Magnum P.I. style) earns double points. Well it would if there were points being awarded.
Ok, time for a beer as I hear it is fantastic Mo fertiliser.

So far we have:
Tony - Team Captain
Bart - Seasoned campaigner
Chas - Rookie Dark Horse (well ginger horse really)
Ben - A man with a beard
There are a couple of people who have promised to join that I am expecting action from shortly. If you see GuruBob or Medway then some unsubtle pressure should be sent their way. I think we also need the experienced guidance of Big Bad Al.
Let the sledging begin!!!

Well that is probably my silliest hat for the whole month...
Pre-op before getting day surgery to remove a cyst from my eyelid on the last day of Mo-vember, I tried taking another one afterwarsd but the drugs had kicked in and it is pretty blurry...
So my Movember takings were around $650 bucks towards the cause which I was very happy with - probably 6 times as much as I thought that I would actually raise. I have to say the whole Movember thing is an incredibly effective way to raise money - now if only I can get my new cause started - 'Beards for Bob' then I will really rake in some moolah!
Of course I know that there is no bigger loser then someone who is sporting a mo-vember mo in December but I ams till proudly growing my bushy shrub on my face - not because I want to keep the thing but because I am off to Sydney tonight and will be attending my sister's 40th on the weekend so want to show the whole family the thing 'in the flesh' as theys ay.
Can't wait to hear what my nieces and nephews think - it will probably scar them for life!!!
I made a foolish mistake on 30 November by agreeing to meet some old Army mates at the Caxton for a quick half a dozen beers. I compounded this mistake by inviting them back to my place for a small whisky when the bar shut. A couple of chairs made it off the verandah and my recollection is hazy at best.

And you're all handsome fellas, with or without the facial hair.
Thank you for letting me be part of the Magnum P.I. Allstars Movember Team. It was truly an honor, even if my 'mo turned out to be a bit, um--how do you say it in Strayan?--dodgy.
Here are my final 'mo pix.
Girls just wanna have fun...with their 'mos.
Currently 'mo-less...and under the table? (This pic just makes me laugh)
Actually this one was probably a better attempt, but the expression doesn't have the same degree of sleazy misplaced confidence and so it just doesn't work.
and it was fun. Pretty much the laziest way to try and raise money for charity. shave less.
And i can honestly say it hasn’t had impact on my luck with the ladies
this is it half gone
and here is my ugly mug with the lot gone, including all the head hair–
cept for the tickler thingo. Gunna keep that for a bit. Might try and grow it past my double chin
Well you can see we have made the massive impression on the MAGNUM PI ALLSTARS LOOK A LOIKE TOP OF THE heap list. personally its as itchy as hell this time around...but ist a great cause.
So this is it. The End of Movember. Which must mean it's Movember Round in the A-League. Producing quite a decent swag of dirty slugs and poorly thought out lip luggage, but nothing quite on the scale of enthusiastic stealth-ginger midget Roar midfielder Matty McKay a few years ago with a handlebar-inspired, Ned Kelly Goes To The Blue Oyster Bar special that defied description, explanation, gravity and taste all at once. Sadly, yet perhaps thankfully, the interweb contains no photographic evidence of this masterwork. Which means yet again,
Don't say I never do nuffin' for ya, Australia.
It's been great fun being part of this, both the growing and the cataloguing of the mos in question. Really enjoyed it, and I'm sure my fellow travellers on Team Magnum would say the same. To them, to everyone who donated, and to everyone who joined us on the Movember journey, thanks for making it AWSM.
Oh, and one more thing. Lads... it's been emotional.
The Doctor is OUT to find the clippers and get this bloody thing OFF.
