Insert-gear, check these out;

It goes slightly over the 30 quid mark, but postage is only 1.99 for next day delivery, and every man's man loves be able to make up his own lather and escape those dodgy foams

(Sandlewood cream ftw, btw)

Shiney blades are to boys as shiney Louboutins are to girlies.

For anyone wondering what the shops in town are like - i was in there today, and it was busy but there wasnt many queues, lots of people around but not many buying. i was in from about 11.30-3, bit busier around lunchtime but the biggest queue i was in (hmv) was about 4/5 people stressfree for the most part! it can only get worse though..

I just finished my second placement for college...work not still not as a fully fledged staff member so felt odd..work; right now I'm not liking it. Last year I decided I wanted a art time job round xmas that was busy, festive and different from my normal line of work, so got a job in HMV..lasted only 7 weeks!

Gonna be a hilarious xmas in my place, surprises all round! 'Cause I've spent the majority of my pay check already and not on presents!

I'm thinking of getting a MASSIVE box and filling it with balloons with a bar of chocolate tied on the end so that when my brother lifts the lid the balloons all rise out! Dunno if anyone has seen that ad on tv but he loves it! He'd have to appreciate the effort!

I reckon it's just one of those 'man things' - Shaving with a straight blade or DE blade, making up a lather that actually smells nice (currently sandelwood & clearysage!), getting the right blade, etc - Then ending up with a lovely smooth face. It's one of those nice routines that couldn't be described unless you tried it.

Not that I'm suggesting Novella try it or anything...

Nice idea but not so easy (or cheap) to pull off.
First, you'll need to rent a gasbottle of helium. Helium filled balloons will only maintain the 'floatyness' for a short period of time, a day at the most. So, if you want the balloons to lift a bar of chocolate on Christmas morning you really need to fill the balloons very late Christmas Eve. Now, to have that ready for Christmas Eve you'll probably need to rent the gasbottle for a few days. Getting a bit expensive now.
On the plus side, hilarity will ensue as every does the Squeeky Voice thing on Christmas morning.

Nice one Lia Lia!

By the way Novella, a word of caution if you do use the helium balloon item...make sure you don;t fill the balloons in a room with those textured ceilings...( maybe they are a bit old fashioned bow but some houses still have them)..We filled balloons a few years ago and let them float while we filled the others, but when they hit the roof they burst! So be sure to pick a room with a nice flat untextured ceiling

DANG! I really need to think things through in my head!
I doubt a huuuuge box with just a bar of chocolate sitting in it will go down quite as well!


Fajitas thinks I'm a beardy lady!!
