Just random stuff...
Bleh. This is my Sunday evening. I work the next two nights, so I'm about to lay back down for the traditonal Friday Pre-Work Nap. I hope things are better than they were last weekend and last Monday. Although, when we are busiest is when I feel the best about what I do.

Awhile back mcbarnes1970 wrote about using King of Shaves shaving gel, so I tried it. I agree that it does a great job. I have always needed lubrication when I shave more than anything else. When shave gels first came out, I was so excited because shaving cream, to me, is worthless. I was dismally disappointed when, upon using Edge for the first time, the gel immediately turned to a foam as soon as I touched my face with it. "What is the point of that?" I thought. Well, King of Shaves comes in a clear tube and it stays in gel form, thus providing the lubrication I've been searching for lo these many years. I recommend the mentholated variety as it leaves your face cool after shaving. There are varieties for the ladies as well, and you can get unmentholated and sensitive skin, I think. We bought it at Target, or you can buy it online at the link above - scroll down to "Shaving Gels." All-in-all, a great find for me. Thanks Michael!

Now, a snack, the remainder of a movie we started last night, then nappage.

Oh yeah, not walking today. Need a day of recovery after yesterday's walk (full hour, haven't done that in awhile) which was followed by some yard work. Royally kicked my bootay. I'm still tired!

every time a bell rings a fairy gets his wings...

shortly before noon, gymbrall read in awe:

I'd like to point out that you can no longer make fun of me about anything, or you're going to get a big dollop o'mockery right back at you - and it probably will not be the mentholated nor the "sensitive skin" variety.

I do have some questions about some of my 'sensitive areas' that I now feel you are more than qualified to answer, but... perhaps I should email you those.

Anyway, expecting a vicious retort but somehow managing to keep it together through sheer willpower, and the recently acquired knowledge that there are varieties for the ladies, I remain your friend,

Poor dear giblets,

Angel. An angel gets its wings. Just sayin'.

First of all, I guess it is beyond being believable for me to disavow any knowlege of just who you are at this point and try to label you as merely a wacko LJ stalker that stumbled onto my journal. I certainly hoped mentioning "sensitive skin" and "ladies" varieties would have made this as valuable and informative a post to you as it probably was for my target audience.

Be that as it may, I am confident enough in my heterosexuality as to be able to talk about shaving my beard with no tinges of embarrassment or fear of ludicrous snide comments such as yours, gymkata. Ha. I remain unnassailable, and clean shaven, and presumably bearing a light, yet pleasant, menthol scent as I walk past. ;-)
