You can help him shave in those "tight spots".

If Dave's wife won't help him shave his noggin after he bought her a horse, there's no way I'm going to do it.

You are in for a rude awakening. Old farm house with a 24x24 shower. It'll be a tight fit, but we can just barely make it.

Vornado 733, what an awesome air circulator. I've only needed the lowest setting so far, but I'm guessing it'll be very effective in the summertime...hopefully end up using the AC less. Also the light whir helps me sleep like a baby!

Re: Great products you've recently purchased that exceeded your expectations.

Supr, can you post a link to the model you got?

There are probably several blogs similar to this, but I'm reminded of the following one, which is right along the lines of this thread:

Re: Great products you've recently purchased that exceeded your expectations.

A couple years ago I bought a water pillow:

Best $40 I ever spent. It took a couple tries to get the water level just right, but after you get that, it's just a perfectly comfortable, never-changing support for head and neck.

If you can't convince her to peg you, maybe you should get a smaller strapon

Bump... I picked up a pack of these based on this recommendation. I've been very pleased with them. It's weird, because I hate the Mach 3 cartridge razor. It irritates my skin, so I've been using a Sensor Excel for the past 500 years. But the Mach 3 disposable doesn't seem to bother me.

That box should last me through the end of the year. Excellent.

Hmmm. I'm constantly looking for a decent pillow. I may have to give this one a try.

Plus, it makes pillow fights a lot shorter.

Espcially if you freeze it.

So...Suprmallet and kvrdave, did you ever get your razors, and how do you like them?

Also, I did get the water pillow Ky-Fi mentioned, and really like it.

Great pizza oven but can be used or all kinds of things. I have one in my office that I used a few times and just got one or Christmas. I've used it 3-4 times already. Works great.

Re: Great products you've recently purchased that exceeded your expectations.

I did get the razor. Had it for about 2-3 weeks, and it just wasn't cutting it for me, no pun intended. I will say that it was easily the best electric razor I have ever used, and if I were just a face shaver, it would have been great. But it didn't do the noggin terribly well. Actually, it did it fine, but to achieve a fine result, I had to spend about three times as much time shaving. Figured it was just a matter of getting use to, so I stuck it out for a few weeks, but it just never got faster. Probably due to the round, combined with the hard, of a bald head.

But for a truly great shower product, it turns out you can't beat....

I've been using this for about six or eight months now. Great for cooking up a frozen pizza without having to heat up the whole oven.

Since there is no point of reference, and since you can use it, I'll assume that item is about the size of a faucet washer.

Cool. I'm always recommending that thing to people--I love it. The first two nights I had it, I slept badly. First night I didn't put enough water in it, second night, too much. Then I got it right, and it's been perfect ever since.
