I bought some Mr. Bubble the other day and perhaps I’m using more than I’m supposed to, but wow! bubblicious! And they didn’t all pop after a few minutes, even when you pile them on your head and forget they are there. It also didn’t irritate my oh-so-sensitive skin, which I was very happy about. I wish this Mr. Bubble Bath Powder were unscented so I could use it in making solid bubble bath with yummy scents. Now, if only Mr. Bubble made scents like Lush. Or Lush made tremendous bubbles.

I would like lip balm that tastes like tea, black tea. And something that won’t interfere with drinking red wine.

My mom works for a city parks system and around Halloween time she holds a pumpkin carving program. My mom is so good at pumpkin carving that her pumpkins appeared in full color on the front page of the local weekly paper. Then she got asked to be on the local news, the next year she did an entire spot on the local morning program, and almost each year now she is called to be the Halloween-themed human-interest feel-good spot on the local news (usually at the very last minute too). People come to the nature center where she works and say “Hey! You’re the Pumpkin Lady!”. I was at college when all of this was happening so I didn’t get to see her tv spots until my visit last week (I popped in the tape when she wasn’t looking). And right there, in the big kitchen set, holding a basket that sits on our dining room now filled with safety pumpkin knives and scoopers, was my mom, showing the local news personalities how to stencil and cut, with the words underneath her saying “Janelle – Pumpkin-Carving Expert”. Yay mom!

Lunchtime find: temporary tattoo words, like fridge poetry but for your body – I forget the name of the stuff, but I found you can buy temporary tattoo paper which you can print on as well. Does anybody know what specific thing I’m talking about? They came in a little altoids-shaped tin.

[ p.s. the comments for the last two, and presumably all the next, entries are nastily broken and I don't know why and I can't find out until I get home much later, if you can't stand it email me! ]

In a drugstore in Ohio I ran across a cheap set of pumpkin decorations – it was a bunch of transparent plastic pieces, a battery operated light, and a small wooden mallet. It was basically Lite Brite for pumpkins! I havn’t seen it around here, but I want it!
