You call this a multimedia event? This is a slide projector and a bedsheet!

I dragged my mom along to check out this "Big Semi-Annual Sale" at Bath and Body Works, where the siren song of skin care products sings to me so sweetly and my disdain for girly things goes right out the window.

Hoo boy.

I, personally, got the following:


Hand Repair healing hand cream in the coconut lime verbena scent, which is simply the sexiest thing ever

Those little aromatherapy pulse point thingies, in Awake (grapefruit peppermint) and Sleep (chamomile neroli) varieties

Antibacterial hand lotion (crisp citrus herb, mmm) for when I've been handling other people's books all day long

Sweetpea body wash, plus those dorky little nylon scrubby gloves to go with it

Pure Simplicity oat face wash and moisturizer (hey, another bottle of moisturizer never hurt anyone)

Pure Simplicity burdock root skin mattifier, which I am in love with because it pretty much magically makes my face completely non-oily. Seriously. I tried it out at the store (I have quite oily skin) and it was incredible. It wasn't even on sale.


I'm not even entirely certain what all my mom got. Mmmm.

*smells really, really good*

I've been listening to this song on repeat with actual speakers plugged into my laptop and singing along and everything, which is one of the nice things about being at home. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I had the version of it from the indie album, of course, but I just downloaded this one last night. If any of you people I've already indoctrinated into the ways of the Tea Party want me to send it to you or something, just let me know.

The end of The Time Traveler's Wife made me weep. It was the third book to do in as many days, although those three were the first since, gosh, I don't know, maybe Gone With the Wind the first time when I was twelve. Maybe I was just in a weepy mood, but still ... so good. I'm a real sucker for a good timetravel story, and this one is fabulous.

The other books, for those of you playing along at home: Lamb: The Gospel According to Christ's Childhood Pal, Biff and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. Guh. Loved loved loved.

Well, that's what I've been up to. Plus lots of putting-books-on-shelves, of course. Oh, and I promptly ordered one of these because I am Steve Jobs's whore forever.

Big annual sale at Bath and Body Works?! That screams at me like a pink suit at a formal. Scare-E-ness! Apparently I have more of a disdain for girlie things than you do; which I never thought possible. The fact that you even went there, let alone described everything that you bought, makes me want to puke. I feel like bathing in a mud puddle right now to cleanse myself of such abhorrent thoughts. *Shutters*
Ur just jelus cuz I smell better tahn u!

Not to mention that I have an AirPort Express and I know how to spell "shudders"
I meant shutters.... like you know... I am in a room with shutters, and you're outside the window... and to get ride of you and your gross products, I closed them... and made it a verb... like shutting a door is *Doors*.... *Shutters*.... yeh thats right... that's what I meant... really...
I bawled through the last two chapters of Time Traveler. Given your comment about the other two books, perhaps I'll put them further down on my reading list because I'm just not in the mood to be prey to weepy books. Darn books!
For what it's worth, Lamb will make you laugh your ass off, repeatedly, before it hypothetically also makes you weep.

*fangirls Christopher Moore madly*
