Hopped Up Goofball

I woke up today eight kinds of hungover. After my inspring run in the $17K (I don't recall how I busted. Was I ahead? Was I behind? Was I conscious?), I had to do a little spritzing around the abode, none of it having to do with peppermint lotion (and if you don't know why that's so goddamned hilarious, I pity you). The upshot is I didn't get my drunken ass into bed until past midnight and that 5 o'clock alarm came awfully early.

Funny thing about me when I'm hungoover after a very fun evening. I get silly. I talk to myself and make myself laugh. I sing "Hotel Yorba" at the top of my lungs while walking from the train. I remember what Larry said yesterday about how there's no way Monroe DOESN'T get to that ball in the daytime and cackle anew (and if you don't know why that's so goddamned hilarious, I pity you). I'm in Full Goof Mode.

Yes, that's right. Five products. It used to be three until a few months ago. I've been using ProActive for like 10 years. I used to have really bad acne scars, and reasonably bad acne, and their little kit cleared it right up. If ProActive were a Cult, I'd have given them all my worldly possessions and joined up. So, you have exfoliating face wash, toner and rejuvenating cream. That's three. After I went to the local Spa in February, I added a couple others on top of the ProActive. In the last year or so, my skin has gotten progressively darker under my eyes, not where the "bags" form, but below that, on the top of my cheekbones. I was informed by the facial-ologist that the darkness comes from sun exposure, from the reflection off my sunglasses (which makes sense) and she recommended a product to lighten the patches and even them out to match my regular skin tone. Shit works like a charm (it's called ScarGuard Gel if anyone out there has issues). I also added the fifth on the facialist's recommendation, a 30 spf sunscreen for the mug. It smells like a Hawaiian beach.

So....five. Not geigh. But certainly time-consuming.

Bobby and Captain Jason T. Kirk make me wanna be a better person. They also make me wanna bid on things over the internet.

The Breakup Song is "Time to Waste," by Alkaline Trio or, as I sometimes refer to them, The Al Kaline Trio. Yes, that's funny.

...and you found everything you need
to make your life complete
completely revolting


June 24th is 65 days from yesterday. Game on! Place your wagers.

I, too use five. Kiehl's cleansing milk, cucumber toner, and Bliss Sleeping Peel exfoliating anti-wrinkle serum go one two three. It's never too early to start that shit. That's all topped off with a layer of Philosophy Hope in a Jar and another of Shishedo under eye cream. There's nothing wrong with five products.

Oh wait...I'm a woman...;)

As a child I looked up to your rock star with a brain personality

As I watched you have troubles I learned you are human.

Reading your honesty about your vulnerabilities I admired you and consider you a True Man.

Then I read of your need for products and think,,,,hmmm what a pretty boy.

I sometimes wonder why you just don't come out...I don't want to have to see you in leather chaps someday walking around the village (ala Veto) and have to report you to the blogger brethern...I mean, not that there is anything wrong with it.
