Best Haircut on the Main Line
reviewed:
Gentlemen's Choice
11 Paoli Shopping Center, Paoli, PA 19301
I just got back from Gentlemen's Choice. Another great experience. I've been going there for ages and love it. Not only that, it's the favorite barbershop for my teenage boys, too. (Summer buzz cuts; winter longer cuts.)

Terrific crew there. I have my hair cut by Jackie and have really appreciated her attention to detail. And hey, they even shave your neck there. Where else can you get that done.

Want to go to get a terrific haircut in a legit barbershop filled with pros? Gentlemen's Choice should be your choice.
Quality Excellent

World's Funniest Analogies.

I practically cried laughing so hard reading some of these.

Annual English Teachers' awards for best student metaphors/analogies
found in actual student papers:


His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like
underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.

He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy
who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those
boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at
high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one
of those boxes with a pinhole in it.

She had a deep, throaty, genuine laugh, like that sound a dog makes just
before it throws up.

Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.

He was as tall as a six-foot, three-inch tree.

The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling
ball wouldn't.

From the attic came an unearthly howl. The whole scene had an eerie,
surreal quality, like when you're on vacation in another city and
Jeopardy comes on at 7:00 p.m. instead of 7:30.

The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like maggots when you fry
them in hot grease.

Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the
grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left
Cleveland at 6:36 p.m. traveling at 55 mph, the other from Topeka at
4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.

John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had
also never met.

He fell for her like his heart was a mob informant, and she was the East
River.

Even in his last years, Granddad had a mind like a steel trap, only one
that had been left out so long, it had rusted shut.

Shots rang out, as shots are wont to do.

The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law George. But unlike George,
this plan just might work.

The young fighter had a hungry look, the kind you get from not eating
for a while.

He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck, either, but a
real duck that was actually lame, maybe from stepping on a land mine or
something.

The ballerina rose gracefully en pointe and extended one slender leg
behind her, like a dog at a fire hydrant.

It was an American tradition, like fathers chasing kids around with
power tools.

He was deeply in love. When she spoke, he thought he heard bells, as if
she were a garbage truck backing up

No photo, no follow. G+ has just about worn out its welcome in a week. First way a sausagefest, now it's a spammerfest.

It's hot. Amy Winehouse is dead. Oh, yeah, 87 people got killed in Norway. And we've been in a war that can't be won for over 10 years. Time to get back to important things like people talking about Google+ and its features.

All people talk about on Google+ is Google+. Twitter was that way as well. A tool is just a channel people, be interesting.

Oh, Media Temple, I'm gonna stop praying at you if your GD servers don't come back up soon. This is way longer than enough.

A few weeks ago on a sunny Philadelphia Saturday or Sunday morning, I received a FourSquare notification that Frank Roche (of KnowHR fame) checked in at his place of work, IFractal. Since I was also at work myself, I saw this as an opportunity to take a break, jump on Twitter and acknowledge I was doing the same. Frank cordially responded back, "can't sleep through a recession." This caused me to do two things: 1) Write that down because it's a g...

$500 reward for return of a lost iPhone in Philly. Details are in the ad...lost at either 3rd and Market or 1414 South Penn Square on Monday night around midnight. No questions asked.

(Hey, Google+ lost and found...finally a use for it.)

G+ needs a COLLAPSETHEGODDAMCOMMENTS button, because I'm sick of my stream being the length of the Nile because everyone wants to get +Robert Scoble's attention.

What a terrific place. I get my hair done by Stephanie -- and I couldn't recommend her more highly. And the salon itself...from the warm welcome when you enter to the friendly feeling of everyone working there. Shear Artistry is a happy place -- and they make you look and feel good, too. Who could ask for more?

I've been to Paoli Diner at least 50 times. I've eaten breakfasts, lunches, and dinners there. And consistently they have good food at a great value. From the moment you walk in an Nick greets you, it feels like home. This is exactly the kind of place we used to call a "Greek restaurant" where I grew up in Chicago. It's not Greek food, per se, it's just that it has a huge menu and breakfast anytime. Things I really like: tomato, basil mozzarella omelet, the pancakes are best I've ever tasted...and the BLT in the evening...yum. I highly recommend the place. I like eating out...and Paoli Diner is a place I return to again and again. That's saying something.

Terrific place from the moment I walked in the first time to 18 months later. You won't find a more professional and cheerful group...and my teeth...wow. Dr. Tuncay is the best in the business...and so is everyone there at Rittenhouse Ortho. Want straight teeth and a reason to smile with them? Go to Rittenhouse Ortho!
