Yeah. Though we are using that term very lightly as it refers to actual age. I started a number of years back, quickly got into collecting (at a time where I was having acquisition problems in other areas, with light hoarding)… so, in the name of mental health, sent the entire collection off to charity (the one run here, the Saint Sue charity auction, held once a year in the fall)... and, didn't show up here again, partly embarrassment with myself at having impulse bought a ton of vintage stuff, partly that since I had already learned a fair bit, and had the two razors I kept (okay 3, but the Merkur Bakelite broke like two or three months later) and my brush and soap, because I was staying with DESR, that I didn't 'have' to go back, and frankly was worried I might slip into things (So you are one of those "rare species" here on the B&B. You are a.... GIRL ???!!! :-O :-O :-O
Anyway, needed a new razor, knew this was the best place to come for info and recommendations. Got them, and was nicely gifted two razors by @airmech, so am staying at least until I do a couple of reviews for them, and probably a bit longer if I don't go crazy (that doesn't include the three soaps, and sampler pack of razors because I actually need them...honest...I have like 3 10 packs of Feathers, a couple of random blades (Merkur, Bic), and thats it. And my goto, Wilkinson, which I'm out of, I"m also not happy with...so sampler time. Plus drugstore blades are a ridiculous price)
So yeah, girl. Hence the DESRGRL. I don't usually announce it, but I do put a pretty scuttle out as my avatar (though it makes me a bit sad, as it is one that went to the auction). I also talk a lot.
