My question is, what’s so wrong with Cipation that Anticipation would even need to exist? And how exactly does one cipate?
We ordered a 100 pack of Derby Extra razor blades yesterday and I can’t wait until they come in. This blade ranks right up there next to Wilkinson Sword blades. After trying one on a friend’s recommendation, I found that it is an excellent “budget” blade. While not quite as smooth and resilient as a Wilk, the blade provided a very pleasurable shave, slicing a two day old growth with ease. After using it for a week, it was still holding it’s own, performing much better than the cheap American Personnas that one finds at Walmart for $1.68. Don’t get me wrong, the Personna is an excellent standby blade, but when I want a little luxury, I reach for the Wilkinsons. Now, I can have close to that same luxury every day! At $17 for 100 blades, the Derbys are only .17 apiece, only 1/5 of a cent more than the Walmart blades. Even with TWGW using the blades too, we should be set for awhile on shaving bliss.
Speaking of anticipation, I got some moulds in the mail this week (Thanks Mamma Bear) and I just used them last night to make a couple of pucks of shaving soap. I’m probably going to start selling my soaps soon! Look out for Uncle Albert’s Amazing Solid Cream Shaving Cakes in a B&B post near you! I worked out another scent last night to add to my short list of fragrant soaps that I can make. This one smells strongly of licorice, and I’m still trying to find a creative name for it. The names of my other soaps are Atreides (Smells kind of like Old Spice) and Captain’s Galley (Orange and clove). Any suggestions on the new scent?
