Brush shaving with The Art of Shaving Sandalwood Shave Cream.

It's unreal - it shaves extremely close, with zero discomfort, and it smells so good that I'd happily bathe in the stuff. I'm still working on the techniques for building my lather - that's an artform all to itself, but so far I can't argue with the results. A dime-sized drop of the shave cream makes enough lather for 3-4 shaves, so I'm wasting it a bit right now, but that's ok - I love the smell of it so much that I'm happy to leave the extra sit around while I finish showering.

Here's the prep work:


And here's the lather - what you see on the brush is more than enough for 2 full shaves.


Combined with the Nancy Boy moisturizer, things have never been better in the 'ole mug department... well, I suppose that's not entirely true - my mug is still pretty hideous, but it's never felt better. Smooth, never dry, and never irratated. Absolutely glorious stuff.

In other news, we've got the turkey brining for tomorrow's big meal. We'll have turkey, apple/sausage/sage/walnut stuffing, garlic buttermilk mashed potatoes, corn, and wheat rolls. We forgot to get anything for dessert, but I suspect we'll be full enough after the meal.

Finally, John Janzen sent me another link to a story about his dive on the Carl Bradley. This story is really well written, and it has a video if you'd like to check that out. Here's a link to the Star Tribune Article and the video footage from the dive.
