It's almost that time of year again: Movember.
For those of you foolishly unaware of this annual festival of upper-lip fluff, it's basically this: throughout November, men across the world grow moustaches and kind, attractive people like yourself give them money for their hairy efforts. The aim is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. It launched in 2003 with a meagre 30 men, but in 2010 almost half a million mo-growers were involved.
Last year I managed to raise £366 (thank you to my lovely sponsors!), plus I received a tweet from Stephen Fry for my efforts. Obviously, I want to beat that this year. To achieve this, I shall, of course, be modelling my tufty growth on that of Jason Schwartzman in The Darjeeling Limited (why wouldn't I?). First though, a couple of weeks of an excessive shaving regime, just to encourage something, anything, to grow.
