Post 3218 - Wednesday

One more work day left in my week, before a 4 day weekend. How lucky am I!

I mean, I KNOW that lots of other people get this same 4 day weekend. I am not the only person so blessed. But this is my blog, and it's about me, and not about you. So, I get a 4 day weekend starting in less than 24 hours. Yay!

You can tell that this is going to be a boring blog post when the highlight of my day was receiving the bars of shaving soap that I ordered several weeks ago, through Amazon. It is the Williams Mug Shaving Soap, which costs less than two dollars for each "puck". I decided to stock up and got 6 of them.

For those men out there, who shave: Have you noticed that the stores all seem to stock the crazy-arse expensive multiblade cartridges? The ones you have to put a second mortgage on your home to purchase? It is deuced difficult even to find the simple razor blades that my safety razor needs. That's fine, for now. When I got the thing earlier this month, it came with 5 blades, and I am still using the first one, so I have 4 more waiting for me. But the day will come when I will have to get new blades, and there are not that many places that stock them. The Lawton's at the Halifax Shopping Centre had a 5 pack of them for about 5 dollars. Not a bad price, I guess, compared to the multi blade cartridges I am trying to eschew. But I am sure that if you can buy a 10 pack, or a 20 pack, of these blades, that I can realize greater savings. I guess it means having to look on Amazon. I'd like to support local, but if they make it impossible for me, then I will have no choice but to look elsewhere.

A friend tells me that Sievert's Tobacco in the downtown has some of those razor blades. I don't work downtown any more, but perhaps when Patricia is feeling better she can look there for me.

How weird it is that a fella can't find the very blades that used to be ubiquitous?

Anyway, I think I will turn in. Been a long day. Need my beauty coma.

See you tomorrow.

Here is a site I saw on the reddit forums that may be of some use for your blade needs.
