Movember!

Recommended Posts

Is anyone on here taking part in this worthy event?

It is an effort on behalf of a charity, whereby blokes have to grow moustaches in order to raise awareness of, and help people who are suffering from prostate cancer. http://uk.movember.com/about/

My lovely Timsk and his NHS colleagues have gone all 'tache-ified' for 30 days (starting last Monday). Almost mistook him for Rufus Hound earlier! Not such a bad thing, I suppose. Bit of stubble burn though.;)

If any of you have a pound or two to donate, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Some of my flatmates are doing this! I like it, it's a good idea. Haha, if he's turning into Rufus he musn't forget the tattoos! Will donate something later. :)

I thought I'd be a cheat doing this as every day is Movember for me. It's more amusing for those who can barely grow a whisker.

I don't have a pound or 2 to donate. I am tired of being asked for cash all the time. I swear, the Internet and the streets are full of people asking for money every week.

Harsh, I know, but true. I am not giving a pound, or 2, or 50 pence, or even 1 pence (fact).

Viv... as cliched as it sounds, if you don't have anything nice to say you really just shouldn't bother. Nobody is forcing you to donate. :rolleyes:

Best of luck to Tim in his moustache-growing endeavours, I'll make my donation at some point today.


So save the last dance

For me my love 'cause I

I see you as an angel freshly fallen from the sky...

I'm just saying. You can't walk down a street these days without a can or a magazine being thrust into your face. Money for this, that, the other.

I'm starting a "viv" can where people can give me 1p just for being harassed for money. I should be loaded pretty much by the end of the first day.

We're in an on-going recession, and it's just outrageous. And Xmas is coming up for us all. And VAT hikes on everything from 1st January 2011. I've had to buy a number of extra clothes early, before the V.A.T. hikes in 2011.

Never mind growing moustaches. We're all doomed. The whole bloody lot of us.

I think that it is great that Timsk is doing this!

Viv as for you, can I cast your mind back to Sport relief, where nearly every post you made was asking for people to donate? I think you even had a sponsor me message in your signature! So don't come on here moaning and whining about people asking for donations.

You never have a nice word to say when Nati is involved. So take Helen's advice and for once keep your stupid contradicting opinions to yourself!

Wow Viv. You're truly special.

Remind me to donate, Nati. I need prompting but I'm waiting for some wages :)

Bit ironic considering how many threads you've made in the (recent) past pestering us all about donating to/sponsoring Scott, Radio 1 etc...

For everyone supporting me in this (even just with a thought or comment), you have my thanks. The 'tache is already fully grown - in just a week and a half! It has a lot of grey mixed in, but people have told me it looks distinguished - so that kind up makes up for the itching / scratching and general ridiculousness of the whole thing...

Times are hard for all of us, but it's one of the things I admire most about the British public - the general willingness to give a thought (or a spare pound or two) to those who are in a less fortunate position than themselves. 1 in 10 men will suffer from prostate cancer, so it's quite possible a brother, father or male friend will be afflicted at some point later in their lives, and it's a tiny thing for me to do to look more daft than normal for a month to get people commenting and to raise awareness a tiny bit.

I'll be posting a picture at some point, you have been warned!

EDIT: Thanks for the donation Helen - much appreciated.

Viv, no-one asked you directly to make a donation. It's just if you want to. If you don't want to, pipe down.

Damn, you got there before me. ;)

I'll check my Paypal to see how many pennies I have...


Ohai.

Yeh, but R1 are in a different category. :-) And this is an R1-related site.

I suppose this IS the lounge though :P

Yes, but that was before we had a change of Government. No-one knows what on Earth they will do next, and I strongly advise anyone to think carefully about just how much they can afford - now, or in the future. I will even be thinking about what I will give to R1 in future.

Like Emma, I will leave it here.
