A couple of months ago a new barbershop opened close to my house, run by a young English guy. Last week I saw a review of the place, liked the look of it and booked a shave and a haircut for this morning. A gorgeous old shop, all wooden benches and classic chairs, a fridge full of local beers while you wait.

It was fantastic. Hot towels, cold towels, proper brushes and then a shave with a straight razor. My chin is about as smooth as a baby's bottom. The haircut is good too.

Old crafts like this appear to be making a comeback, and doing well.
Now all I need is a god shoeshine place.

I found a place like that here in Phoenix. They throw in a quick shoulder massage as well.

Phileas, I always knew deep down in my heart that you think you're better than us humans

Oh, crap.

You'd think the almighty would be naturally shiny.

It's good to know that she wears shoes. Says a little about the type too: since they can be shined, that rules out sneakers.

No, but God is; Alanis Morissette, to be specific.

How ironic.
