Movember 2011… Day 4

Home, UK          Friday 4 November, 2011          9pm GMT

Donations for Movember gladly accepted at

I’m not sure what is going on. Every single person I have met whom I have not seen for a few months have not recognised me!

At the RIPE meeting in Vienna, people were walking past me either until I called out to them and they then realised it was me, or they walked past me a second time, doing a double take and then realising it was me.

The same thing happened today. I walked into a hotel lobby for a meeting and the person I was meeting did not recognise me!

I would have shrugged it off as nothing if it was just a handful of people that this happened with, however, I am not exagerating her, it was every single person!

I wonder what it could be.. my longer hair, the lack of facial hair, or my specs.. or all three?

Today’s pic taken this evening:


Something seems to be happening with my facial hair growth so I may be able to shape something tomorrow. You may notice that I shaved a section of my face – the bit under the sideburns. I’m still not sure what shape the moustache will take so keeping my options open by shaving as little around it as possible. 😉 Anyway, hopefully better progress tomorrow.

Running total of donations raised up to today: £25

I hope you can support my “Mo” growth by donating (even if it is just £1 / $1 / €1) to the Prostate Cancer charity via my Mo Space at

Until next time…

  1. I saw pictures of you at the RIPE meeting and noticed that you are now wearing glasses. I don;t know how new this is but they stood out to me. Nice design, too.

    1. Those glasses are about a year and a half old.. thanks for the compliment 🙂 Where did you see the pics of the RIPE meeting and me wearing those glasses?
