One year later, with a new design to boot ...

Well, it has indeed been a year of blogging here on the Lounge. Not that I want to make that big a deal about it, I certainly don't have many posts in the archives. I'm hoping to do more here in this coming year. Again, I make no promises. It's merely a hope.
On to the assorted editorials. First thing on my radar is the Gillette Fusion. I spotted it in Stop & Shop and had to laugh. For those of you who don't know, I am a bald headed man, I shave it regularly. So I found that I've become a connoisseur of razors. Currently I use the Schick Quattro. It has four blades, which honestly, I find excessive. Frankly, I like the weight and the feel of the handle, that's why I use it. But I could easily go back to using the Mach 3 which has a mere three blades. Now if the Quattro is excessive, then the Fusion with five blades, is just overkill. Not to mention the $25 pricetag for 8 replacement cartridges. That's over $3 a cartridge. The tagline for the Fusion must be "For a shave so close, you'd swear it was muscle tissue". Needless to say I won't be making the leap to five blades just yet.


So that's what that thing is. Well F me.

Five blades... no.

I do love my Mach 3. Of course at the time I loved my Excel with only two blades and before that I thought the regular old Sensor was my blade of choice. The funny thing is that while I loved each blade at the time, I would slice myself up if I used any of them today. It's like the Gilette company has weakened my face over time so I have to buy the new expensive blades.
