Before I get to the subject of the day, first a bit of shameless self-promotion... had another shout-out for my blog, this time from Nick over at Zionide. Nick did a blogger "meme" (March 22nd entry) and I earned a couple of mentions -- blogger with the best eye candy and who updates most consistently. Now, I think he was just being very nice about that 2nd one... it should have been titled "Blogger who apparently has nothing better to do than blog"... haha! But I appreciate the mentions! Nick was one of the first blogs I ever stumbled upon (ok, one of several dozen folks who landed their thanks to a Nate Berkus search), so he is partially responsible for what has turned into this little 'ole blog called Whine & Cheese. I will leave it up to you whether you want to thank him or blame him!
Ok, today's topic! That swimsuit I ordered arrived in the mail yesterday. No worries, I like it... cool pattern, very tropical... but quite short. It met my criteria... shorter than "surfer" length and more coverage than say a suit that has lycra in it. It is definitely fitted, not like a loose (underwear) boxer short... or else my ass is bigger than I thought! But it'll work...
Also, keeping with the title... you remember that line was the theme for Nair, the hair removal product that targeted the ladies to have those smooth legs when they wore their short shorts. Well, with my swimsuit order I did an impulse purchase and bough this product called No Shave. Now, I am not looking to do any major hair removal, but I thought I'd give it a try for some areas were where this is an almost sillily (ok, I made up that word) small amount of hair. Ok, perhaps vaulting well over the T.M.I. line ... it's the upper/lower chest/torso area. Anyways, it is the type you slather on wait 5-7 minutes and rub off with a damp cloth.
The directions say it is "not recommended for face, underarms, perianal or genital areas"... ok, I am NOT interested in using this in those regions, but I still found that amusing... and okay a little scary. I have read horror stories (even from some guys!) about this kind of product, so I am hoping this will not ultimately turn into a future blog entry that will straddle the line of humor and disaster.
So fill me in... ladies or gentlemen... does it work? If not, what is your preferred method(s)? And heck, just out of pure curiosity how do guys get some of those nether regions so smooth on those...ahem! amateur ahem! "picture" sites?!
