On the third day of Gheorghemas, Big Gheorghe gave to me...
Three catastrophe staches
The Finest Holiday Duet in History
And One Hell of a bloggy Par-ty
We at Gheorghe: the Blog like to make the most out of any situation. When life gives us limes, we make gimlets. So when Hurricane Sandy blew through New Jersey and sapped our power faster than Ian Hymen on a Saturday night, G:TB's Jerseyites made the most of the dim situation (get it?). Absent heat and power, in the face of great difficulty and darkness ... we grew catastrophe mustaches.
The timing couldn't have been better. I shaved cleanly the morning of the storm, October 30, giving me a perfect lead into Movember and making my stache nominally socially acceptable. TR played a similar gambit and we exchanged a few photos along the way via text.
Dave also grew a mustache, but this isn't as impressive because he can grow one at any time -- he balls up his fists, scrunches up his face, and pushes the hair out of his upper lip in the same way that other folks push a recalcitrant turd out of their recta. Instant mustache, although it's more of a Dirty Sanchez according to my metaphor.
The results were electrifying (get it?):
Thus another chapter enters the glorious continuing saga of "gheorghe mustache".
On a more serious note, our outcomes were a lot more fortunate than many others'. There were many terrible stories of great loss and death, thankfully none involving us or those we know. We hope the remainer of 2012 will be comparatively uneventful and we look forward to numerous events of chicanery in 2013, starting with shenanigans scheduled in January, all of which will be summarized in Gheorghemas 2013.

Now I have Heart Sweats stuck in my head. Enjoy.
