I am going to double check the drugstores but I am pretty sure that they don't sell the gel oils here. I am going to have to wait until the next Buffalo trip or just settle with Johnson's baby aloe gel oil. I don't know about you but I am tired of smelling like a baby when I don't even have one =)

My office building had a false fire alarm and the IT guy was doing updates on our computer so I had two hours to kill this afternoon. I went to the video game store nearby to see if they had a screen protector for DS but no luck and then I put in half an hour of AC time. The other 75 minutes I actually did non-related computer work.
Anyhoo...here is my playlist for this week...
FabFive Songs (Mar 30)

Now the whole idea of geek night started a few weeks ago when Mike and Reggie hung out but after reading Reggie's blog post of Mac and Cheese, I wanted to invite him over so that he could try my version. Maureen ended up in the mix when she invited herself over, LOL! It was her idea that I should try to make some creme brulee so for the first time, I tried Toblerone creme brulee. Both turned out very good. See photos below...
Between the mac and cheese and dessert, we spent Earth Hour at the candlelit dining room table with charged up DSs and laptops. Yes, I know it's probably defeating the purpose of Earth Hour but we were not using any electricity. It's almost 1 am and Geek Night is almost coming to an end. Reggie has left already and Maur is just watching Taken.
AC Note - mo.par and JT came to visit L.A. but unfortunately, Leesh and Ross were not able to visit lalaland. I got some cool things from Maur's character - a white veil, two cabana lamps, a modern sofa and a beach table. I have decided that I am going to keep my cabana set on the first floor and change the second floor from different fruit sets to a modern set. With the change in set, I will have to start collecting the furniture. Luckily, flea market is coming. Also, I got a quick preview from time travelling, in April the trees that don't bear fruit become Cherry Blossom trees. So pretty!

- In the beginning if you need bells - shake all the trees, collect the fruit and sell it to Tom Nook. If you shake some of the trees with no fruit, you may get money bags or furniture. Beware: each day there are three beehives in the trees.
- After you finish working for Tom, buy a shovel and a fishing pole. The shovel can help you dig up fossils (bring them to the owl at the museum but don't dontate, sell it to Tom) and the fishing pole will help you catch fish to also to sell to Tom.
- When you have paper, write letters to the other animals in your town and attach a piece of fruit to send to them. When they write you back, hopefully they will send you a different piece of fruit. Plant this fruit and watch it grow. Shake the tree and plant some more. You could also sell the fruit to Tom for 500 bells. Whatever fruit you started the game with, Tom will only buy for 100 bells.
- If you buy insurance from Lyle for $3000, every time a bee stings you, you will get $100 in the mail.
- On Saturday nights after 8:30 pm, go to the cafe in the museum and see the dog playing on stage. Let him choose the song to play and he will give it to you after his performance. You can then add the song if you have some type of music player in your house.
I could go on forever...
Before I call it a post, I want to apologize to "Boss". I know that I said I would buy AC - City Folk for Wii but I am having too much fun with the ability to play AC no matter where I am. Since you loved City Folk so much, you should buy Wild World for your DS so you can also play anytime, anywhere. P.S. I hope your house is coming along quite nicely. I have only heard good things from the other Steph.

I know that there are a ton of other songs but this is it for now. ADUBS - some of these songs aren't songs that G actually listened to but for some reason I think of Gino when I hear it.

A Touch of Sea Salt Bar - also known as Excellence Fleur de Sel. Mike and I like this bar because Mike loves anything salty (margaritas) and I love the combination of sweet and salty. Lyn doesn't like this combination and JP was shocked that with the first bite how much salt he tasted.
Excellence Chili Bar - Lyn and JP liked this bar. I think that this was their favorite. Mike and I hated it. I actually got a headache from it and it felt like there was a coating of pepper in the inside my mouth.
Excellence White Coconut Bar - This bar is not available in Canada but it's Mike's favorite. Lyn likes it because it's sweet. I don't like white chocolate and JP doesn't like coconut.
It was kinda cool that we sat there and tasted the chocolates. It was like a wine tasting. I think I want to do this everytime we have people over for dinner. Who needs dessert when you can have a chocolate tasting.
The metallic ones are slightly different from the usual flip flops Old Navy sells. I find that these ones are more cushiony and softer on the feet. Plus, since they are metallic -- they look much more dressier. If you can only pick up one pair, I would suggest getting the gold ones.

I hope that if I do pick up this book, it will inspire me to bake.

I will continue with my blogging and twittering. I will continue to enjoy the facebook albums that people send to me. I will continue to secretly still use my cousin's account to lurk around my brother's page. And when the time comes, I will have to rely on the St. Helen's girls to connect me to all our friends to plan the reunion.
Until the day comes when I really, really cave in and join facebook, please continue to read my blog and maybe I should look into posting more photos (because everyone loves looking at photos).

I am watching Jon & Kate Plus 8 and the family are in Legoland, California. They showed a bit of the Las Vegas in Miniland, USA so out of curiosity, I had to google it so I could see more.
DamnCoolPics' blog had a good series of pictures. I am so amazed that the replica of Vegas is all built with lego. My favorite picture (and those who have been to Vegas will laugh) is the one of the guys who flick those damn flyers of naked women (see photo above, courtesy of the above mentioned blog).
Also, there is a girl who will be celebrating a lot this weekend - I am so sorry that I am not able to make it to your festivities but I know that you will have the time of your life!!!

As I mentioned before, I am a truly believer in these products. I never had to worry about acne before but as an adult, it's a bit embarrassing and with ProActiv, it's more manageable. Happy Shopping!
So not only am I hearing it from my elementary school friends to join, I hear it from Gino's friends and my cousins. Is it really worth it to join facebook when I already throw my life stories out there on this blog? Let me know what you think...vote on the poll above!!!

Next, we went for lunch at Sushi Tei. I plan to do a yelp review after I type up this blog post. We had only ordered some maki rolls. On the top left, Ocean's Roll, top right is Deep Fried California Rolls and at the bottom is Hawaiian Rolls. All were extremely delicious. It was such a satisfying lunch!
For the rest of the day I plan to iron, do some work, update my address book, play Animal Crossing while watching the ABDC marathon. I hear that Gossip Girl is on tonight. Not sure if it's that "All About Dorada" episode or a new one. I guess I will just wait and find out. I hope everyone had a good weekend and that you aren't pissed as I am that we lost an hour of sleep.
Here is a picture of us back in the day at our grade 8 confirmation ceremony. From left to right - Yvette, me, Duarte, Lori and Suzanne.

(I have one other Max Factor mascara to try but that will be in a few weeks, one can only have so many mascara tubes open and in use at once)
UPDATE #1: I take it back - the mascara is not that bad. It definitely separates and lengthens my lashes but I still dislike the two step process. I will have to assess the removal of it again tonight and then I will give my overall rating.
UPDATE #2: Could this be why I discovered all those clumpy pieces of mascara on the cotton pad? This is taken right from the link above:
Step 3: Beauty tubes remove easily with just warm water – no makeup remover or rubbing required!
UPDATE #3: I tried to remove the mascara from one eye with a cotton pad and warm water, it came off in clumps. The, I tried the other eye with my Almay remover and still clumps. I am so creeped out by the clumps.

I am quite excited because on Saturday, I will be meeting up with my elementary school friends who I haven't seen or spoken to since 1994. It's going to be an interesting night!
