I absolutely hate jumping on bandwagons, well except maybe if the bandwagon is filled with good tasty beer and hot geeky men. No, really I hate bandwagons.
For as long as I can remember, any time any thing became popular it suddenly lost all its appeal to me. There are very few exceptions.
Due to this, my HS fashion was never really “in fashion” in my town. I’d make small adjustments to fit in a little bit, but I always did my own thing. If something did come in fashion, it was usually a year after I’d stopped wearing it.
Anyway, I digress. My point is I love odd things that I think are fabulous until they’re taken over by the general population.
For those that aren’t aware, this month is November. (I know I was shocked to hear it too) In November, there is this pretty damn awesome thing called “Movember“.
I honestly love it.
1. It raises awareness & money in a fun way for Men’s cancer issues.
2. It ends up being a month full of very manly looking men. While I don’t necessarily love the feel of beard against my skin, and find mustaches kinda gross, I find the ability to grow a full one very very sexy on a man.
I wanted to do a post about it, especially when I heard that yesterday was “Have Sex with Mustached Guy” day, but that little go-against-the-flow rebel in me balked at it.
I had the same reaction to the Susan Komen pink ribbon thing when it hit its peak. Up until then, I couldn’t get enough of baby pink everything. “Ooo I don’t need a new keyring, but this one is pink!” “I look awful in pastels, but this sweater is PINK!” (Side note: I love the Susan Komen project still, and for two things: Promoting cancer research, and making it so anything I want to buy I can get in pink. It really helps keep guys from borrowing your stuff.)
I was nearly sick of seeing posts about “Movember” this, “Movember” that. Then today I saw some pictures of friends proudly sporting their facial hair, and one saying how much he hated his facial hair but it was for a good cause.
It brought me back to the spirit of Movember. Caring. Fun. Helping Others. I had to do a post.
I’m frankly quite envious of Movember. Guys get to do all sorts of funky things to their faces. Grow hilarious mustaches, strange beard patterns, lambchops, whatever facial hair fantasy that they’ve never had the courage to do before, and no one can make fun of them. Seriously, you can’t make fun of the guy with the Colonel Sanders look because its for cancer! How awesome of a thing is that? What boss is going to fire you for your unsightly appearance? It’s for cancer!
I absolutely love it, so much so that I get a little penis envy. So support your Movember man, or if you don’t have one, here’s a link to some support-worthy Movember manly men. (yes, I know a lot of sexy men.. Shhh)
