Hey guys. I’ve finally reached the max dosage for my Lyme disease medication (read about my struggle with Lyme here), so I haven’t been feeling too good lately, and with the holidays, well, there hasn’t been a lot of updating from me, has there? For those of you who follow me on Facebook I’ve been posting deals from the Good Old Games sale and the Steam sale (videogames), plus any awesome beauty sales I find (Sasa.com!). If you’re not following on FB, consider it. I find the best deals a lot of people miss + you may see awesomeness. Fair warning ^_^
 
 


Ddukbokki!

 
Holidays were good for me, I had a lot of Korean food (my favorite!) which is TOTALLY not allowed considering my strict requirements. Doctors orders: I have to eat a very careful diet, you guys would not believe how boring it is, lol. I can’t eat at restaurants and no one makes compatible food so I have to bring food with me. Usually I’m good, but I have no resistance against delicious Korean foods (ddukbokki, kimchi, japchae, bulgogi, ermagherd so gerd!!). Perhaps then it’s a good thing that we don’t have Korean restaurants in Vermont, if we did I’d fail at my diet and get so sick!
 

Though mostly I’ve been too sick to play a lot of games, the ones I’ve spent the most hours on recently are Harvest Moon Tree of Tranquility (Wii), and I just got The Sims 3 (PC) during the Steam flash sale. I’ve also been rocking Fortune Summoners Secret of the Elemental Stone (PC), which is unusual because I’m not typically into platformers, and they’re difficult due to my hands sucking at anything hands are supposed to do (like opening jars, writing legibly, holding objects, or jumping on shit missions in games). I’d say I enjoy all of these games so far, and yeah none are super hip roguelikes but I’ve been too sick, my brain can’t rogue. Every time I play I get Yet Another Stupid Death (YASD) because I can’t focus. So I’ve been playing more casual stuff for now.

Image is a photo os 3 products in front of an open box with some marketing materials. All are displayed neatly. The three products are all hair care from It factor, 2 are in tubes one is a pump. All three are very cute pink packaging with a apple-green circle with the brandname, and embellished with white filigree vector art.

 

One day, out of nowhere, I received a very nice email from a nice company, but one I’d never heard of before, It Factor:
 

I came across your blog and was wondering – do you review salon products? I work with a company called IT Factor and its products are available in salons in Vermont. Is that the kind of thing you might be interested in?
 

It’s called Simply It Quick Blowdry Smoothing Lotion. It lets you condition and style with hold, reduce drying time and smooth both wet or dry hair using just one product.
 

See? Isn’t that nice? They even knew I was from Vermont! So I replied with something along the lines of “Yes, I’m a total hair junkie, and a quick blowdry is on my list of things to sell firstborn children to get.” They have been very patient considering we first starting communicating in October (but guys, I have a pretty serious illness so I’m not a lazyface), and they sent me a seriously generous package with the full line of the Medium to Coarse hair products (shampoo, conditioner, smoothing lotion). They do have another line made just for Fine hair.

Also readers, by now you KNOW I love a good pun
