Dead Sea Spa Stuff

About a year ago, I went to the mall to get some clothes that fit (remember, last year, I’d gained some weight because all I did was eat spaghetti and watch The O.C. on DVD). I walked by one of the kiosks and let one of the cute Israeli guys talk me into buying this stuff (and some of their other products as well). It was something I could ill afford, but I’ve never been able to fight a high-pressure sale by a cute Israeli guy. (That’s why I avoid that kiosk now.)

While cleaning off my chest of drawers, I noticed the bottle of the lotion. I’d put it aside in the “take to work and put in the free basket” pile, but then I picked it up and sniffed it. Mmm. Then I put some on. Yum. While not great for my dry hands, it feels amazing on the rest of me. And it smells amazing. So, while I don’t necessarily agree with their high-pressure sales tactic, I’m glad I bought this lotion. And now that I know I can get it online, where there is NO pressure to buy, I can move knowing that I can obtain my favorite lotion anytime I want.

It did not go the free basket at work. HA.

Their stuff is not cheap, but the stuff that I caved in and bought, I like all of it. So there you go. Not an endorsement for caving to high-pressure sales or anything, but that sometimes, you do get what you pay for. My arms and legs feel like freakin’ silk right now.

Not Quite as Productive….

I wasn’t as productive today. I did a lot of administrative work. I sorted and packed the rest of my CDs (some I am burning on here before sending them to the big Half-Price Books in the sky), and I got a small part of my electronics bin done. I prepared some packages to mail that I’d been meaning to mail for weeks/months/years, and I entered all the addresses in my address book to the computer. Now I can throw out all those envelopes and slips of paper I’ve been saving! I also filled out my change of address card, requested records from my ob/gyn, and

Tomorrow, I plan to finish the office stuff (I know, I keep saying that). This weekend, I shall tackle the kitchen. And my room. Teehee.

Less than a week for ZB. Tuesday night, there is a little get-together for me at La Chatelaine. I’m gonna miss that yummy place. Now I’m craving their lunch special. :)

I should get off here. Except I’m still importing music. But I’ll be done in just a bit. And once I’m done, I can go ahead and pack up the CDs for good. Except I have CDs with no cases and cases with no CDs. I hate that. Oh well. Good night.
