Close Shaves

Here is my latest vlog where I get to use the new Gillette Fusion Proglide razor and you get to see the results.

First off, I decided to buy theĀ Gillette Fusion Proglide razor mainly because it was heavily promoted on YouTube. In fact, there was a competition that went on between popular YouTubers Cory “Mr. Safety” Williams, Charles Trippy, and Mediocre Films, and you had to pledge to shave with the Gillette Fusion Proglide razor on June 6. Unfortunately, I couldn’t afford to buy the razor then and I ended up missing out on a chance to win ten thousand dollars. Oh, well. There’s always other competitions, but if I did enter I probably would have been on team CTFxC (which stands for Charles Trippy Friend Core for those of you who don’t know your YouTube celebrities.)

Well this weekend, I finally bought the Gillette Fusion Proglide gift pack which contained the razor itself, thermal face scrub lotion, cooling lotion, and shaving cream. All that in a ten dollar gift pack, which is not bad. And it was probably well worth it too.

Because as you can see below, it worked.

What I found really good about it was that the razor is battery-operated and it glides smoothly over your face as opposed to regular and electric razors. So despite the fact that I still don’t like shaving because it makes me look like a kid, it looks like I will be using this razor for a while.

Oh, The Agony Of It All

I’ve been sick the last couple of days and just when I thought I was getting better, whatever I had came back with a vengeance. My head felt like it was going to explode, I was freezing again and I had some difficulty walking. And so I had to call in again.

I also ate at the historic Empire Diner on the corner of Main Street and Route 5. It was basically nostalgia-central there. I saw it on an episode of “Mohawk Valley Living” and from there I learned that Elvis Presley, the King of Rock ‘n’Roll once ate there. I have to make a mental note next time I go there to film it for YouTube.

Later on that night as I was eating dinner and watching the season premiere of “Heroes,” my headache came back and I had to lay down. It pretty much continued through the night and well into the next morning and it was so bad that I could hardly sleep, and I nearly emptied my whole ibuprofen bottle trying to get rid of this headache. It was around 6:30 last night when I decided to call in sick at work. In a way, I think my job is to blame for why I’m so sick. In fact, when I first started out there, I was out for two days for being sick because of a so-called “ebola” virus going around.

Starting to feel better now, especially after I had my Hannaford-brand Frosted Shredded Wheat cereal. Hopefully, I should be able to go back to work tonight. After all I only have four days left until I am back on vacation. And what’s good about this week is that I managed to take my vacation on a week that wasn’t a pay week.

And I’ve got a little bit of news about my “Librarian” video that I posted during my last vacation at work. Viewership for that video has increased tenfold since the whole Sarah Palin thing broke out. That may be attributed to the fact that I tagged my video on with a Palin-related video, or the fact that the librarian character looked like her. The latter would certainly be close to the truth mainly because the librarian was a result of collab clips from YouTube star LisaNova who has since gone on to play Sarah Palin in several videos on YouTube and on BlogTV. So now in addition to being my most watched live video, “The Librarian” is actually my fourth most-watched video overall.

Well, I gotta run now. I got some more things to do so hopefully I will be able to make it to work tonight.
