Donations for Movember gladly accepted at http://uk.movember.com/mospace/789888
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…
