The other night whilst laying in bed with my girlfriend, the discussion of my upcoming birthday came up and what it would be that I would like for said event as a gift.  Now my normal answer to any such question that puts me on the spot to make a fly decision is to answer, "I don't know."  Which for me is the only answer there is for any sudden questions such as that as I have not carefully weighed all of the options to form a truthful non-regrettable answer.

After some prodding as to why I "don't know", I came up with needing a solution to store my magazines.  Her first thought upon hearing the word 'magazine' was to pertain to that of what goes into a firearm holding the bullets for said firearm to shoot.

Which was wrong.

I meant for some sort of device or devices to hold the several years worth of Playboy magazine that while being a subscriber has thusly accumulated...en masse.  I would conservatively put that at 6, six, seis, years worth of tits and ass...of course, not just T&A, but as well as interviews, reviews, social commentary, political commentary, so forth and so on.

I enjoy the magazine thoroughly...and not in the Jergens and Kleenex sort of way either.

It seemed to me that my answer to the question and talk of the magazine brought about the idea that I may have some sort of problem with letting go or throwing things out.   Which is not the case by no means.  I can throw things away...just not going to be throwing any Playboys away.  I may not be going back to past issues to re-read them per se, but they are something of an art that should be kept around.

Speaking of art, I do remember seeing a hang-able, clear, plexiglass box that could fit a years worth of magazine in one of the magazines.

Baby, I need about 7 of those.  Please and thanks.  Your the best.

We always seem to think we don't have enough time to do the things we want or need to do.  There just aren't enough hours in the day to do all of this stuff that need has to be done.


Have you really thought about all the wasted time that is used up without thought?  All the time we spend on Facebook, texting, being bored and avoiding other things, could be better off spent doing things we would like to do.

I know for me, Facebook is a large time waster, as is Cracked.com.   Which tends to cut into the time I could be updating this thing, as opposed leaving it sitting in the cold dark confines of the internet being visited by Brazilians with their amazing asses.  The problem I tend to have, besides general laziness in banging something out to post, is the fact that I have trouble finding something to write about.  When that spark of an idea comes to me, I tend to be still lazy and unwilling to go get something to write the idea down with or even jot the idea down into my phone so I can expand on the thought or idea when I might be more so inclined.

Oh, these are usually great ideas that I have, that I flesh out completely inside my head but my laziness, keeps me from utilizing the means to keep me from forgetting them for future reference.

Take this update for example, it only came to be as I was sitting at my computer bored, trying to decide what it was I wanted to do at that time.  Read a magazine, Playboy, mess with Tarot cards, stalk on Facebook or read more articles on Cracked.com.  Tarot was about to win out, but in my head, I said, "I don't have enough time to do that right now."  Enough time, was the key that got the ball rolling on this right there and then.

Which to add, I managed to finish even with a text message waiting to be read.

After reading a little blurb in a recent Playboy; yes, I do read the magazine as opposed to just looking at the pictures, they had a mention in there about straight razor shaving. After looking on the internet to find cost, how to's and whatever else may have been useful, I decided to go for it.

Which means I bought the necessary items to start using a straight razor to shave with. This includes a razor, a strop and a kit that included a mug, brush and shaving soap. I actually bought two razors, one stainless steel and the other carbon steel, just to see if which one would be better. I did read things online about stainless being hard to sharpen or strop and that the carbon steel if not tended to properly, can and will rust or tarnish.

Now after several shaves under my belt and after learning the proper way to strop; which including watching some rather lengthy and boring videos on the web, I am sort of getting the hang of it. Read into that as I haven't cut my throat yet. My only problem area is my neck, I cannot seem to be able to get a smooth shave there to save my life, always seems to be a little rough afterwards. Re-lathering and shaving only seems to exasperate the level of irritation to my skin, but I hope in time I will either find the proper way to do it or just live with it and leave it be.

Since starting this, I did make a couple of changes. I started using an aftershave lotion and face moisturizer so as to not have such an extreme level of irritation that I would normally feel. Also, I got some different shaving soap, the Burma Shave soap, just was too much like regular soap and not helping in the ways of shaving. The new soap I got I originally noticed online, but after a trip to my local Walgreens for aftershave, noticed everything in said Playboy that they recommended. Which really is a bonus, as I have never noticed these items in this Walgreens ever before and I have purchased a many shaving items from them over the years.

Oh, the new soap is made by Van Der Hagen and is a deluxe shave soap. This soap is much better than the Burma Shave soap, doesn't dry out my skin and actually softens the hair more than the other.

So far this is much better than using a safety razor, less irritation and no need to buy anymore cartridges or disposables. One thing to note, this is not for someone that needs to hurry to get ready for something, this is a process that needs to be taken a little slower so more time is obviously needed, especially when you are just starting out. The last thing you want to do is end up cutting yourself really bad or end up missing patches of hair because of a rush job which ends up making you look like some homeless person or mental patient.
