Extremely smooth & pleasant shave

with 9 comments

Class days pretty much wipe out discretionary activities in the morning—plus today when I finally got parked and looked for my briefcase in the car, I suddenly put together my memory and realized I had placed the briefcase atop the car briefly while I did something, and that therefore I must have driven off with the briefcase still there. Luckily, I recalled, I had zipped out rather quickly, so the briefcase probably fell off in the driveway itself or just in front of it.The MacBook is in the briefcase, but it’s a Briggs & Riley and specifically made for traveling with notebook computers, so I knew that the computer was fine.

Got home, and there it was. Someone had put it up on the sidewalk. But that ate up more time…

Terrific shave today, thanks to a reader stimulating me to get more use from the slant bar. As a daily shaver, it’s wonderful. Some say that using it daily eventually becomes hard on their skin, but (after one shave in a row), so far, so good. Great lather from Tabac, as always, and then an enjoyable splash of Tabac to finish.

And now I’m back and a sardine & rice GOPM is in the oven.

  1. I’m in the minority on this, I realize, but I find Tabac to be overrated. While it lathers like crazy – almost just by looking in its direction – I just don’t find the lather very slick or protective. To me, it’s just a very middle of the road performer. I happen to like the scent, which is very polarizing in terms of opinion, but the performance… meh.

  3. GOPM = Glorious One-Pot Meal(s), a method of cooking described in the cookbook of the same name. If you search this blog for “GOPM”, you’ll find various recipes and at least one post describing how this method differs from, say, slow-cooker one-pot meals.

  4. Ah right. I did Google ‘GOPM’ but found nothing that related to food.

  5. Sorry, I wasn’t clear. Use the blog search box at the right, toward the top, to search this particular blog. Here’s what you get.

    I think I’ll add a GOPM category.

  6. Oh, I know what you meant. What I meant to say was I Googled ‘GOPM’ before asking what you what it was.

  7. Aha. Got it. 🙂 Communication is difficult. God knows how many problems texting leads to—as the Indiana Deputy Attorney General recently learned (though in that case the communication was accurate, which was the problem).

  8. Anyway, I’ve almost completed going through the old posts and putting them in the new GOPM category. Some will not be found by searching on GOPM.
