random confessions of a happy girl III: thinkings and doings.

Life Candy's been very cleanse-centric lately, hasn't it?  Yeah.

Well, worry not, my lovelies.  Although I'm now doing the healthy lifestyle thing to improve upon and maintain the results of my 30-day cleanse, the level of food and fitness talk here will likely return to previous frequency and intensity.

Except with less "holy crap, I'm getting fat!" and more "eat this paleo thing -- it will keep you healthy, yo!"   I know, right?!

Okay, contrary to popular belief, I did more than just cleanse, work out, and eat salads over the past while.  I did a lot of other thinking and doing too.  So did my family.  I will talk about that stuff...


Late last year, Roomie had a cavity in his wisdom tooth that became infected and made it almost impossible for him to eat, sleep, or talk FOR A MONTH.  He lost a solid 10 pounds at least.  After emergency dental surgery, he asked for the tooth so he could look at it under a microscope and take pics that his wife can share with all her internets.  Look at the size of that freakin' hole!!!  No wonder the poor guy was in so much pain...

I am about to start reading The Hunger Games series.  Sleep will not be a part of my schedule.  It's the Twilight Saga all over again!  Gah!...

I am a pinning machine!

My daughter has discovered the magic of nail polish.  So now, every nail surface MUST. BE. COVERED.  Which means Daddy gets a pedicure...

Once again, I'm experimenting.  This time, it's with argan oil.  As a moisturizer.  It supposedly helps fade minor scars and brown spots.  I'll post pics in a couple of weeks.  Hopefully not of me looking like Jocelyn Wildenstein.  Or Michael Jackson.

I'm considering adding John Stamos to my List.  We're talking strictly eye candy.  "No, no, John.  Please.  Don't speak.  No, seriously.  Don't."  He's improved since he passed the age of 45, leaving the days of Uncle Jessie far behind him.

I can't help but laugh when people say that the characters on The Big Bang Theory could never be real.  Good grief, people, those are the very nerds I lived, studied and worked with from the ages of 17 to 30!

Oddly, my favourite character is Zack.

Milk Dud?
I did not watch the Academy Awards.

That is all.  For now.


  1. I so need to go on a 30 day cleanse in which I eat only salads! Yay got you. And, have fun reading The Hunger Games Trilogy - SO GOOD! Yes, it's Twilight Saga all over again... I wrote an Oscars re-cap, which is way more entertaining to read than the awards were to watch! ;)

  2. Bazinga I live with 2 of those people. They are so real.

  3. @Loukia: Oh yes, I loved your Oscar recap! I believe I left a comment where I agreed with everything you said! :) You were totally spot on, m'dear!

  4. It's great to hear what you've been up to! You'll love the "Hunger Games" series. It's fantastic.

    I'm curious to hear more about the argon oil too.

    P.S. I was trying to figure out what the heck that picture was before I clicked through to your post. How funny!

  5. I tried argan oil with mixed results. The first time I used it, I found my face was feeling too oily. But it was summer, so maybe it's a seasonal thing for me... My skin is really dry lately, so I've started using it again. It's only been a couple of days, but it seems to be helping.

  6. you do realize is blasphemous to compare hunger games to twilight right? hunger games is awesome. twilight? meh not so much ;)

  7. @micki: Oh, I absolutely agree! Hunger Games is a masterpiece. But I was talking strictly in terms of my obsessive behaviour, my ridiculous ability to get sucked into a fictitious world -- NOT the quality of the work being read. :)

  8. When I was reading that trilogy, I pretty much did.... nothing else.

  9. That tooth looks awful ouch
