An Evening

My evening began when I got home from work at 5pm. I was careful to get home as early as possible because I knew I would have 2 discs of Gilmore Girls (8 episodes) waiting in my mail box. YAY! I played them back-to-back and just finished up. I've got 1 disc and 2 seasons left. Seems like not very much. I am starting to miss them already. It is interesting which episodes I have seen before and that they are in no way playing them in any order in syndication. Sigh. I always felt that was one of syndications biggest faults.

I successfully ruined my appetite for dinner with pretzels and dip and sausage-cheese balls. This was actually fortunate, because I had no idea what to have for dinner in the first place.

I also used up 1/4 of a bottle of Nair tonight.

What an exciting (and smooth-legged) life I lead.

I used Nair once!!! I haven't used shaving cream in years. It seems like too much work. But it comes out nicer?

I used it once a few years ago and just seemed like way too much trouble that it was worth. But this time it was fabulous! Of course, I didn't have to confine myself to the bathroom, I just put a towel over the couch and brought out a basin of water and a wash cloth. Woo for living by myself!

I did sections at a time, but I think that was a mistake, because now I can tell that I missed some spots. I'll have to fix that later.

I always shave in the shower without my glasses on. Needless to say, it's not too often that I wear shorts or skirts!

haha, I'd imagine! That is what I usually, do, but it got so crazy long that I was jamming up my razor blade and it was just kinda gross, so I thought I'd try something new for summer. I am looking forward to lots of skirts this summer (oh, for the breeeeeeeze) so I'm hoping this works out.

It certainly sounds like a more pleasant way to shave, that's for sure. Have you ever tried one of those electric deals? They never seem to cut short enough to me.

Well, with Nair there is no shaving involved, so that is my kind of hair removal! :-D

I had one of those electric jobbies when I first started shaving, but it was scary and probably from 1976, so that didn't last long.

REALLY? I guess I used something else because I've never had that. How does it shave without shaving? How is this possible??? I bet that is expensive. Is it cheap? Tell me it's cheap!!

I had an epilady.

It's basically chemicals. From their website: "Depilatories contain ingredients that work by breaking the bonds of hair. The bonds give hair strength and structure, so when you break these bonds, the hair can easily be wiped away and removed."

You leave the stuff on for 3-10 minutes (I usually go with 6-8 because my hair is really thick) and then just wipe it off with a damp cloth. It's amazing. I've got a bottle that was $4 and I think I only used about 1/4 of it to do my legs and my armpits once.

Unfortunately, it irritates mucus membranes, so they don't want people using it on their faces. I might try it anyway sometime...

They have a face cream now. It's supposed to be special. Dunno if it would work for your purposes. Check out Nair's website for details.

The face cream is for women's facial hair. All the men's products are for chest, back, and leg hair.

Bummer. :-/

Okay, so I totally did it tonight. I know, I know, I'm livin' large on a Saturday night. Me, baby, and a tube of nair.

But it didn't pan out quite the way I expected. It left large patches of hair and gave me new, red splotchy areas. I ended up having to shave and shower after I took the goopy stuff off with the "head of the tool." And the goop smelled like perm solution. I still feel a bit lightheaded.

To be fair, I used veet instead of nair. And there was a large green mold-looking spot on the tube when I opened it. I chose to ignore.

So was it worth it? I am not sure. I think I would have liked it more if it would have peeled off. Or do you think that would hurt? I likes to peel stuff.

Off to pass out in a pile of goop now...

Oh, I used to use that stuff, but the tool thing always made me a bit sore (and splotchy). The nair I use now you can just wipe off with a wash cloth. Or they have this stuff you use in the shower, too. I haven't tried that yet, but if it works it looks cool.

africanashes just told me that she likes the foam stuff.
