    I am reminded that I am weird when a visitor asks to use my bathroom. I have eleven shaving brushes, six razors, a scuttle, and a bowl of MFW on the bathroom sink. That's only the stuff that one can see when one walks into the bathroom. That doesn't include the hundreds of razor blades, the eight tubs of shaving crean, and the the 1000g of Cella that are in drawrers, in the balthroom closet, or in boxes. I guess I should get over being embarassed. I figure I can go without buying any more shaving stuff for at least five years if I want to.

    However, 10 is clearly a collection and therefore acceptable.

    Right, only 7 razors away from normality, sweet
    +2 Hahahaha In that case, pardon me while I go hit eBay (any excuse to buy more is a good one!)
    My girlfriend has really taken to my newfound grooming passion well. She always hated the stubble, so she rather likes that I shave every day.

    This.

    My wife now just rolls her eyes when a new package arrives, and has even gotten to the point of saying, "Just remember to pay the darn credit card bill on time." Given enough time, the weirdness of multiple products, razors, and brushes passes. But when she catches me online, reading and posting on B&B, she still gets weirded out. I'd say forum participation is far and away her number one complaint with my shaving hobby.


    It's because she doesn't like me interacting with a bunch of weirdos like you...

    I have been at this thing less than a month and I already have A Parker, Merkur, two Superspeeds, two Techs, a Lord L6 and a EJ DE 89 on the way Tuesday.

    You're only weird if you start talking about it "on the outside". There really ought to be a secret handshake for shaving junkies.
