Somethings cool

Some of the Write-Ons had a word war this morning. I've never done something like that before. It was fun, tho I kept wanting to stop and chat about what was bugging me (and did, sorry šŸ™‚ ).

So, in the spirit of sharing cool, new things, I thought I'd let y'all in on some cool things I've found.

Remember the Milk – I'm a huge list maker. I have lists on scraps of paper all over my house. Then I started using the task list in my work outlook, but since I don't like to access the work server when I'm doing personal stuff, I can't access that list unless I'm "at work." Then I stumbled across this site. You can make a list, set deadlines, arrange your lists by category and it'll even send you a weekly reminder of your deadlines. (And I only freaked out a little at the reminder that came last night telling me I have seven days to do my taxes, finish two assignments for my HTML class, start and finish the lararose.com website, which is my final project, and do third and subsequent edits on three books. yikes.)

Skinful Scentsations – When I was in Saint John, NB, there was a small booth of all natural beauty products. I love makeup and stuff like that, so of course, I had to check them out. I bought the Whipped Shea Butter (try the peppermint tea tree oil one, it leaves your toes all tingly and soft) and the lip balm, which comes in all sorts of yummy flavours and smells, and leaves your lips soft, not greasy, and lasts for hours. You can order from their booth, or off their website.

Method – I bought their all-purpose cleaner at Target when I was in Buffalo last month, but apparently you can buy their stuff in Shopper's Drug Mart here in Canada too. (just not at the ones out here in the 'burbs šŸ™‚ ) I found that the heavy duty cleansers triggered my asthma and set off my smoke detector, making me more than a little afraid of what kinda wierd shit they have in there, but the Method products are all natural and leave a very yummy smell that lasts for hours (and they still clean your stuff).

Baci Ice Cream – Best. Ice Cream. Ever. 'nuff said šŸ™‚

Any cool things you've come across that you want to share?

    You see, you’ve touched on my fear of to-do lists there. Do I really want to be reminded of all the things I have to do?

  2. Lara Said:

    Heh, when you have 44 items on your to-do list, you need to be reminded of all the things you have to do… But yes, if you want to forget them, then I wouldn’t recommend going there *grin*

    Well, I’m afraid this is going to show a really scary side of me, but two sites I found this year:

    Astronomy Picture of the Day
    http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html

    Because I just can’t turn away from Lost
    http://thelostnumbers.blogspot.com/

  4. Lara Said:

    Hey Jill, thanks for the one about Lost. Mr. Pink is still making fun of me for using those numbers when I played the lottery. Tho I doubt I’m the only one *grin* Over at thefutoncritic.com, they list the descriptions for all the upcoming episodes this season, interesting, but don’t really tell us anything. not that that’s unusual. šŸ˜‰

  5. Jenna Howard Said:

    Hm…what have I found? Vanilla vodka makes the best adult coke floats in the world. And I’m not just saying that because I’m drunk.

    And Johnson & Johnson’s soft lotion with baby oil is awesome for cold Canadian weather.

    I will have to check out the Baci ice cream. I’m pretty sure one bite will blitz my diet out the window but for Baci I’m willing to make that sacrifice.

  6. Hi Lara!
    I found your blog while testing out the search engines to see where our website appears. Imagine my surprise to read your lovely post. The next time you’re back in SJ, drop in at the City Market to see us and we’ll give you a free lip balm. Take care!

    Johanne & Ivan

  7. Lara Said:

    Hi Johanne! Wow, thanks for visiting! And thank you for the lip balm… my day job home office is in SJ, so I’ll be back later this year, and I’ll definitely be stopping by. Anything to keep my lips smelling like a Jelly Roll and my toes tingling *grin*
