"Tie your mother down, tie your mother down, hit your brother with a brick, watch your father drown. Tie your mother down, tie your mother down, give me all your love tonight". The best version of the song I can come up with after hearing other renditions.

What kind of fruit? What do those taste like? tbh I've never had one, as much as I've heard them talked about.

Speaking of, I received one of these at Christmas time and it's still sitting in my freezer... maybe I'll have it tonight:

I'm thinking of buying a hair trimmer. Barbers are so expensive around here that shaving my hair myself will save something like 200€ on a yearly basis now that I have short hair again. Any recommendations? I've read some good things about Moser's trimmers but I'd like to consider other options also.

The biggest difference is the kind of motor: rotary vs. electric. I am sure not what brands are sold near you. But you don't need salon quality if you are cutting hair once every few weeks.

You can get by with an electric motor if you have fewer hairs or if the hairs are thin, otherwise you will likely thank yourself for getting a rotary.

A decent rotary is going to set you back about $130 or so. 

Also, try learning how to fade your hair rather than just giving it a whack with the same size guard. It looks a lot better that way.

Had to stifle my gag reflex when I saw that.  Do people really still drink that crap?!?!?!?!?  If you don't want "alcoholy" don't drink alcohol.  Fruit juice is nice.  Water, too.  Tea, anybody? Grin

I don't think I've seen many of rotary hair trimmers around here so I didn't even consider that option. Anyway, I already bought Moser 1400 and it seems fine to me. I hope we can spend many happy years together with her. She is a bit stronger than those Philipses and Brauns and others which can be found from local supermarkets and not too expensive either (~50€). Finnish hair is generally fairly thin so that won't be a problem. .

I have no slightest intention to shade my hair. I don't want to to look like Will Smith or just about every teenager around here. For the time being I want the shortest possible stubble and leave it that way. I'd probably shave with a safety razor too if didn't fear cuts.

It's fade btw and it ain't what you think it has to be.

Anyway, if you were thinking of going bald, then I hope the model you have has interchangeable blades. On decent clippers you change the blades and get an effective shave without all the hassle of shaving.

She surely has.

The Andis BGRC and the ubiquitous Oster 76 with blade heads ranging from #000 to #00000 is what I hear all the black guys using and they have the worst hair to manage in this fashion.

Having finer hair, you might be able to get by with an magnetic motor and shaving with a blade. If you go the blade route, I would say you are a step ahead with a safety razor, make sure you use real shaving cream and keep that scalp hot while you are at it.

Best of luck! I need to either get my hair cut or do it myself. I have thick hairs and a lot of them, save for my gradually thinning hair line and crown, so I guess it is getting easier to do it myself.

I have successfully razor cut layers in a medium cut in my own hair. It just takes so much time. Fading is sorta harder cause there is less room for a mistake.

Also, you can't price out the pleasure of getting a decent cut from a real barber as it includes massage and keeping abreast of the neighborhood gossip.

You should post a photo of yourself with shorter hair. I always thought you would look A LOT better with shorter hair. Almost all men do. Long hair is terrible on guys especially when it is thin and straight.

If you change cream to soap and brush, that's how I shave my beard when I don't use an electric razor. The latter one I use when I feel too lazy or tired to do proper kind of shaving.

I'd like to go for a real barber but it seems so expensive after ten years or so of not having any need to do that. Having long hair had it's benefits as I saved barber expenses. I'm trying to do without also now that I don't have long hair anymore. Beard shave with a straight blade on the other hand sounds like a nice idea. There's a barber near me that offers that. I need to pay a visit there at some point.

That is a distinct possibility. Although as a former high school girl, I drank a lot more Smirnoff Ice than Boone's Farm. Tongue

It depends on the barber and what kind of service you want. I believe the most common price for men is 20€ if you don't want anything special and don't mind going to bad barber. The one I considered before buying a trimmer was 45€. I guess that wouldn't be anyhow impossible amount either if I had proper income and if I wasn't as stingy as I am.

What does it cost around there?

Sounds like salon prices.  A reasonable haircut would be about 15€, although in my university's small town there was an old barbershop and the old man charged only $10 (so, 7.38€) for an excellent haircut.  He used a straight razor and everything.

IIRC somewhere here is a Turkish barber who offers cheap haircut with a straight razor. I'd try that one but I fear I might end up lookin like a kebab cook with way too much hair wax.

Just met this girl from Portland. Then when she told me her name is Forest I understood why she was born there.

IIRC somewhere here is a Turkish barber who offers cheap haircut with a straight razor. I'd try that one but I fear I might end up lookin like a kebab cook with way too much hair wax.

Don't go bald, Alpo. It's way too cold in Scandinavia.

Already did that. I also bought a calypso cap and a pea coat. Those who say that money doesn't bring happiness are simply wrong.

Around here it sems like pea coats went out of fashion at least compared to how things used to be a few years ago. Anyways I permanently ruined mine by riding through the salty slosh on the street without a fender .

I don't think they are particularly fashionable around here either. I don't follow fashion so it doesn't really matter. I just thought that it would be nice to have a somewhat conservative mens' winter coat which is short and not too casual but not too formal either. Pea coats fits to that description.

You'll look as if you're homeless with a calypso cap.

Had to stifle my gag reflex when I saw that.  Do people really still drink that crap?!?!?!?!?  If you don't want "alcoholy" don't drink alcohol.  Fruit juice is nice.  Water, too.  Tea, anybody? Grin

I always assumed people drank Boone's Farm until they turned 21 and could get their hands on better alcohol.

How I pity the American youth.

What would happen if you mixed up some concrete and drank a liter of it?  That seems like it could be trouble...  Huh

I don't know. It couldn't be any good, though.

That would be a pretty stupid thing to do, unless you were attempting suicide.

It would probably taste like those weight loss shakes.

If "last" is synonymous with "final", you must be in outer space.  How'd you get there, and how'd they (you know, the drunken youth and their elders) get there?  And...how's the weather...? Grin Grin

I'll file doge under a non-meme meme I don't know about.

And when I control everything, the only people who will be killed for saying or writing anything will be those who say or write:

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

Because it would be funny and usually those who say that nonsense, ain't never gonna be the person who suffers a paper cut for someone to get some food, much less lay down their life for someone to say something.
