This thread is rapidly accelerating into some form of Calories Anonymous. Does no one have a healthy secret pleasure?!

Yes, but it depends on location - basically it's barbecued fish with lots of salads followed by tropical fruit...and lots of chilled white Malvasia! :cheers:

You are insufferable!
Actually it's a different young lady. :shh:


Now, back on topic... Anchovies yes. Good call. And androo, I think you're the first person I've met other than me who will eat cold black pudding. :)

i have a few of these:

1) wet shaving, with a vintage double edged safety razor, a silvertip badger brush and some classic cream. Takes a boring every day task, and makes a bit more theatrical, satisfying and enjoyable. Plus you get to buy lots of cool manly smelling stuff. It's also saved me a fortune over the last year, over the cost of mach3 blades, and i get a more comfortable shave.

2) Shoes!! specifically english benchmade shoes from the likes of Crockett & Jones, Trickers, Church's and Cheaney.

3) Hi-fi, or rather listening to music on it, but i'd be lying if i said it was ALL about the music and not somewhat to do with the gear and gadgets.

4) Cars

I agree. Geo F Trumper soap, Merkur 38 razor in red and matching silver tip brush (once you use silvertip there is no going back)

for me its Truefitt & Hill Sandalwood, an Edwin Jagger Chatsworth Razor and a Custom New Forest Silvertip.

Works a treat :)

followed up with the matching T&H balm.

My gf makes these wonderful muesli like bars - no muesli, but condensed milk, almonds, coconut and a few other things that I'd have to look up. Doesn't do my diet any good.

i'm starting to make a small collection from saddleback leather. haven't bought anything big yet, but i have a bunch of smaller things. i *really* like the quality of their workmanship. full grain leather, double marine stitching, everything is just made to last. hence the slogan, "they'll fight over it when you're dead" (and the 100yr warranty).

Androo and Shrink, have you tried a straight razor yet? I enjoy my safety razor shaves, but adding a straight into the mix is a really fantastic experience.
My favourite safety razor is a 1930's Gillette New (all my safety razors are vintage). Paired with a custom Finest badger and some Mitchells Wool Fat soap or Castle Forbes cream, and finished with Pinaud Clubman makes for a damn fine shave.

Mortis, does a tin of smoked oysters count as healthy?
