Previously on I laid out four things I wanted to get done in November: 1: Write a novel, 2: Grow a moustache, 3: Be alone forever, 4: Get a PhD.

I am sad to report that I only succeeded at #2 *. But you know what Meat Loaf says? He says to me, he says, don't be sad, because two out of three ain't bad. Two is only one more than one, and four is one more than three, so ... so uh ... I think Meat Loaf would agree that one out of four ain't bad either.

Am I right or am I right?

Besides, "PhDecember" has a nice ring to it, so I think I'll finish that up this month. Besides besides, writing a book in a month is a fun gimmick, but one I don't feel a strong need to have done more than once, and I've already done it twice (or thrice if you count this). The pressure of November did squeeze a little diamond of an idea into my head, so I'll polish that up over a more reasonable timescale.

There are my excuses for failing at life. December is another busy month, but I will find time to update you on its various happenings, blog. You know why? Because blog, baby, I want you, I need you, but there ain't no way I'm ever gonna ... leave you.

* And raised $135 as part of a team that raised $1854 for prostate cancer! Thanks everyone who supported Movember.

should post a pic of your mustache in this post. I, for one, would like to see it.

Did you keep it like barbers do for your first haircut?

I would also like to see the "Stache", so post the photo already! Congrats on raising the money for Movember.

Why ever put "be alone forever" on the list. It'll never be "forever", you're just setting yourself up to fail that goal. Just saying...

And I too vote for a shot of the "stache".

I have added the only known picture of the stache at its fullest.

Yes roro, I did keep it. I actually waxed it and kept the wax strip, so the shape is even preserved. I will frame it and display it prominently.

Hey Lady! Being alone forever is a pretty good goal to fail. I figured it'd be nice to put a goal on there that I don't actually want to achieve, so even failure is not failure.

Wait what?
