It's a funny thing about blades - I've been struggling with trying to find decent blades these days.
Gillette, Schick... one blade, twin blade, 3 blades..

I always get that one great shave, but the second one is abysmal, never mind a third... Now I'm trying Rite-AId brand Renewal razors, and so far I've getting 3 shaves out of it. I use Kiehls shave cream. anyhoo...

Get a straight razor and learn how to use and maintain it, you'll never buy another disposable blade.

I've flirted with it many times, but I'm absolutely certain I would accidentally kill myself.

I use a "safety razor" (mine is by Merkur, but there are many out there), and it uses double-edged blades. I get Derby Extra blades through Amazon for about 10ยข each. Disposable razors or "cartridges?" Nope. Straight razor? With MY coordination? No FREAKIN' way!

Hopefully a feed bucket filled with giant, fresh pretzels.

It's late though, so I'm going to settle for naan.

Thanks for reminding me that it was a good idea NOT to spend the money (and vacation time!) to go to my national-level professional conference in Chi-town this week.

Here I am. Brand new hair cut and all!

A friendly word of warning... letting a "Chi-town" slip ranks up there with asking for ketchup on a hot dog in terms of identifying you as a tourist.

One time in California I said, "Frisco." Everyone at the table immediately either silently or verbally judged me.

I vaguely recall "San Fran" being in that category, too.

Yesterday I heard people calling Oakland "Oak-Town", which may be correct, but made me cringe anyway.

Now I'm starting to think I said "San Fran" and someone immediately filled in "-cisco." We were near Santa Maria and at least one person near the table lived in SF.

Hmm, last I remember, San Fran was sort of ok-ish, Frisco was not.

Another giveaway is referring to California as "Cali." Natives don't use the term.

Much subtler are people who pronounce the "s" in "Illinois".

Sufjan Stevens gets a pass.

About half of all flight attendants say, "Welcome to Duh Moinezzzz." Usually the Iowans are nice enough not to correct them. Usually.

I remember you posting a pic of yourself which was about a bajillion megapixels.

You were wearing a Jeep sweatshirt.

Since the pic was so large, I decided to search for embarrassing nose or ear hair, but you were groomed with a dare I say Prussian eye for detail.

What's with nose and ear hair going insane after you reach 45? WTF? My wife attacked me with tweezers the other day and nabbed an ear hair that was >1" long, practically overnight.
