The Shower Gel Oscars
Just to prove that I don't spend all my time thinking about football, work, beer, blondes and what I'm going to have for my dinner, I thought I would bring you the real Oscars... The Shower Gel Oscars. As some of you know, this is a constant irritant of mine, and not just caused by a dodgy capsule of Imperial Leather.
I for my sins spend a lot of time in hotel rooms and therefore it's showers and, not much gets on my wick except when you're standing in the shower all wet only to find, often at best, a thimble of shower gel or even worse nothing at all except a crusty bar of soap wrapped in cellophane.
Now, because I stay in a lot of hotels and like a shower in the morning and am very sad I have taken to writing down my shower gel experiences, sorry you seems to think that's unusual? Anyway to jump on the Academy Award
