I went to Japan. I came back. While I was gone, we raised a lot of money! The Ministry hit the $15K mark! The Midwest is rockin’ in at $9,508 and the Northwest is solidly supporting with $5,478! Pretty damn good… and we’ve even got a few days left! Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2012: Days 13 through 27 roundup”
Ladies and gents, guess who’s back for another year of mustache growing, donation collecting, and the word about men’s health spreading!? It’s my fourth year participating in Movember and it couldn’t have had a better beginning! Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2012: Day 1”
It’s been a helluva weekend…
I’m proud to announce that The Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management has reached our $10,000 fund-raising goal! Boom!
On November 18, just after landing in Chicago for the big Mustache Bash at the Gibbons Household (more on that soon!), the M.M.G.M. surpassed $10K… and kept right on going! Since then, we’ve raised another $1,400+ (Not including funds raised at the Mustache Bash… once again, more on that soon!) putting us at a current total of $11,433. Amazing. Many, many thanks to everyone who helped make this possible with a donation or by spreading the word. You’re all wonderful and we couldn’t have done it without you!
Now, after a bit of discussion, Dan and I have decided to set a new goal: $15,000. We’re over two thirds of the way there with 10 days left in the month, so why not shoot for a new crazy-ambitious fund-raising total, right?! If you haven’t donated yet, we need all the help we can get reaching this latest wild aspiration so donate now!
And now, let’s catch up on some mustache photos… Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2011: Days 18, 19 and 20”
The first preview of Disney’s John Carter premiered today. The movie that adapts Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Mars-adventuring pulp hero stars Taylor Kitsch who’s known to many as Friday Night Lights‘ rough and tumble fullback Tim Riggins.
A month ago when the first poster for the movie came out, fellow FNL fan John Schork and I began the FNL/John Carter of Mars mashup talk.
And that’s about all the background you need to understand why I spent 30 minutes today making these… Continue Reading “Tim Riggins Goes To Mars”
After blogging every day for a month, I needed a short break from Enemy of Peanuts after Movember ended. Sorry for the delay, folks, but I’m back with the final fund-raising standings for Team Mammoth-Stache from Movember 2010. To go along with the numbers, I’ve photoshopped early Movember, mid-Movember and end of Movember photos together to show some mo-growth progress for each member of the team throughout the month. Continue Reading “Movember 2010: Final Fund-Raising Standings and Comparitive Mo-Growth Photos”
While I only used a single photo for each person in my main Day 30 update, I have so many great shots lying around from the final day of Movember 2010 that I’d be remiss not to post them. So, for the sake of getting all the fun-mileage out of these ‘staches as we can, here are a series of extra photos of Team Mammoth-Stache from Movember 30, 2010. Enjoy!

Movember 2010: complete! We did it, folks!
After 30 long but luxuriously hairy days, we’ve reached the safe shores at the end of our mustache odyssey. We all made it through the month without anyone bailing out or any horrible shaving mishaps and raised a ton of money and awareness about men’s health along the way. Well done, Team Mammoth-Stache! I’m proud of ya! Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2010: Day 30 (The Final Mustachioed Day!)”
We’ve reached the penultimate Friday of Movember and our ‘staches are in full swing. Frankly, I’m pleasantly surprised with how shockingly dashing we all look wearing these fuzzy caterpillars! Ladies, watch out! We’re fighting cancer and looking fiercely attractive! Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2010: Day 19”
Two work weeks down. Two to go. Yep, the majestic men of Mammoth-Stache have braved their office environs for ten days of possible mustache-growing ridicule and lived to tell the tale! Luckily, our moes (What’s the plural of “mo?!”) are beginning to show and the donations we’ve received so far are really heartening. Only 12 days into Movember and, as of Friday night, Mammoth-Stache has raised $2,329! Thanks for the support, everyone! Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2010: Day 12”
The first work week of Movember is over and it’s time to check in on all of the not-quite-mammoth ‘staches of Team Mammoth-Stache. Time to gaze at some thin-bristled crumb catchers…
