I'm paying too much attention to my unguents....
has anyone else noticed that about a half hour after applying Jergens Natural Glow, your skin smells like...er...roasting corn?
because, dudes. I'm a walking octoberfest stand, here.
I'd stop using it, but I think I'm more grossed out by the sight of blue-white calves than I am sickened by the smell of corn...
yeah. I'm posting GOLD today. GOLD.
in case you're wondering: the chemicals in self-tanning products work because they're browning your skin. browning. like Meat. now that's tasty.

a young boy raised by corpses...
The Graveyard Book: BD reports that Neil Gaiman's upcoming project is 'The Graveyard Book', described as an update of 'The Jungle Book', only set entirely in a graveyard. The story will be about a young boy who is raised by corpses after his parents tragically die.
ok, this sounds so awesome I just may die, myself, from the awesomeness.

xmas stage fright.
ok, one of the million awesome things about The Fiance (formerly known as The Gentlemanfriend) is that he gives the most perfect gifts.
exhibit a: the vertical bookshelf that makes my stack of library books and monthly magazines look perfectly arranged and stable.
exhibit b: the silvery wallet he gave me for my birthday. I use this beautiful case every single day and I always think of him when I do. People tend to comment on how lovely it is, and I can't help but agree with them.
exhibit c: the dozens of daffodils he brings me in spring...
I could go on and on, but basically, he's awesome at the gifties.
which, of course, has me trembling in my boots for this holiday season. I want to make sure I get him something he will love and use every day. You know, something strangers will constantly notice and covet, something that will knock his socks off. You know, something I couldn't possibly afford.
which, as you all know, is impossible when saving for a wedding....(insert frustrated sigh here)
I'll just have to get something lovely and affordable and hope that the whole love thing will make him see that I'm trying to live up to his example....

Finally, an editorial I agree with regarding those Dove Ads....
Yeah, I know that this ship has sailed. But I'm a good swimmer!
Sorry, Dove: Bigger Isn't Necessarily Better

Givhan has said what I have been thinking about people who pound me over the head with the "real women" epithet.
basically, I believe one doesn't have to be overweight to be a 'real woman' - you just need the right chromosomes.
