@chet Wow, that is not good.
@chet I tend to use shave lotions, but the Harry's shave gel isn't bad at all. It's probably right behind Gillette's foaming gel for me (i.e., my face) when it comes to gels.
@chet The last time I picked up Harry’s razors, I did so at Target.
(Note to self: if ever in Iceland...)
@mwerickson The Soul of Shame is great, as is his first book, Anatomy of the Soul. The latter is dense, and what I mean by dense is you're going to read a paragph or two and then have to sit and chew on your thoughts of it, or sit thinking to yourself, "Wow," or "Oh, man" or something similar. So it takes a while to get through just because you're stopping often for reflection. Or maybe that was just me. 😉
And of course there's all the articles he posts on his web site, like you found with "A Body of Work."
@mwerickson Pretty much anything by Curt is recommended. Great man, who loves himself some baseball, too. 😃
@poetalegre Thank you! I think we'll keep him on. 😉
@desparoz Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.
@stevepbrady I'm a big fan of Ronin. A real thinking man's action flick. And Frankenheimer definitely brought the aesthetic of those old Cold War spy films to it.
@smith Times like these, I wish Micro.blog supported GIFs in the apps so I could use my favorite Bill Murray-from-Zombieland thank-you bow GIF. So, thank you!
@Bruce Still in the jar WHERE IT BELONGS. 😉
@chet Oh lord, considering the culinary delights available in that city, I would hope the only time you’d require McDonald’s might be at the airport.
I’m thinking a fried shrimp poboy from Parkway could be life changing.
@Gabz I was working at the CompUSA in the Metairie suburbs outside New Orleans when Windows 95 was released. And I was a diehard Mac guy at the time. Fun times.
@chet I would offer dining suggestions, but so much as changed since I last visited there, much less lived there (pre-Katrina). So I had to go to my friend Zach, who lives just up the road in Baton Rouge and regularly visits family in New Orleans, where he's from. When I asked him for recommendations, he said: "Cochon and Peche are great. Felix’s is in the quarter as well. Turkey and the Wolf is supposed to be good, and Parkway for a poboy is de rigeur."
And of course, there's always Cafe du Mond in Jackson Square for beignets and coffee. Enjoy!
@chet Jealous. I miss the homeland some times.
@jack Ha! Yeah, something similar crossed my mind. More like /remember-when…
@Bruce He's not named Winston for nothing!
@Miraz All the treats! He's such a sweetheart. Just the best puppers. He's even fun in his grumpy old man stage.
@macgenie He does, though treats of this particular nature are now rare. His kidneys are failing, and his diet has been adjusted for that.
I'm just glad after a rough December that he's mostly back to normal.
@macgenie I had to go back 32 years to high school French to catch that one. The cake was indeed rich! (My wife loves her some frosting.)
@cn I thought that one went without saying...
