Enter the NASCAR Dad

Saturday, December 29th, 2007 · 4 Comments

Last night after a belated celebration of Jen’s birthday and Christmas with Jen’s parents — gifts and a delicious dinner at Springwater Bistro — I was struck with the inspiration for a midnight shave. My ‘stache is well into NASCAR Dad territory now, people. Here’s the before: And here’s my NASCAR Dad after: Still disappointed, […]

Day 8: A Christmas Eve Miracle

Thursday, December 27th, 2007 · No Comments

Sometimes pictures speak louder than words: I win. Christmas Eve night Tom and Anne stopped in to drop off some great gifts, including my Christmas Eve miracle and my new muse, Hairy Gabe: And then Jen got in on the ‘stache action (I knew she was jealous of this contest from the start): Tom and […]

Day 7: The Shave & Saratoga Porch Diving

Monday, December 24th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Yesterday was another mostly lazy day with some exciting highlights — the first shaving of the ‘stache contest (the neck hair was starting to freak me out — before | after) and a visit from Hugh, whom I joined in founding the Saratoga Porch Diving Team. But first, lazy updates from the day: I watched […]

Day 6: The Spicy Sanchez

Monday, December 24th, 2007 · No Comments

Not too much to report from Day 6 except that I got a haircut Saturday and told my longtime stylist, Jessica, all about the contest. She thought it was hilarious and wished me luck in the competition. Here’s my official entry for Saturday, Day 6 of the ABMGC 2007: Inspired by Peter’s singing mustache telegram: […]

Holly Jolly Day 5

Saturday, December 22nd, 2007 · 2 Comments

Yesterday was Day 5 of the contest, and I was negligent in my blogging. Pete tells me that he’s experiencing technical difficulties with his cell phone camera, so that may delay his ‘stache updates. But here I am. So here we go. Last night we rocked the town (as usual), beginning our evening with a […]

Welcome Back, Day 4

Friday, December 21st, 2007 · 1 Comment

Greetings, moustache fans. Pete may have drawn strength from the mystique that is Chalmers and the wonderment that is Chase in Day 3, but tonight I come to you having channeled the power of my ’70s namesake, Gabe Kaplan — the power of the ’70s lives dormant within this older brother’s soul (sidenote: here’s a […]

Is Pete Deep in Moustache Meditation?

Thursday, December 20th, 2007 · 3 Comments

Pete, what happened yesterday? You had a series of blog updates following your official Day 2 entry, and you had this blog entry about Manifest Destiny? but no official Day 3 entry! I hope you weren’t swallowed by a giant, man-eating moustache! Or perhaps you were paid a visit by this guy, and have entered […]

ABMGC 2007: Day 3

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007 · 3 Comments

The ‘stache contest is in full swing and I haven’t blogged this consistently in ages. There’s nothing like a moustache contest to bring out the best in people. First, be sure to check out Pete’s Day 2 blog entry if you haven’t already done so — he attached a razor to his face as if […]

ABMGC 2007: Day 2

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007 · 3 Comments

As loyal readers know, yesterday marked the start of the ABMGC 2007. Today is officially only Day 2 of the challenge, and already we have a new contender from the outside. So I was talking to my Mom today about the challenge, and she reminded me that this would not be the first time her […]
