Rising Moon Spring Ale
With Kieffer limes leaves and lime peel. I get what they are trying to do here, but I’d skip it unless you’re really into special ales.

Chain Factor
Back in December I had finally, finally gotten over this game only to get re-hooked when Kottke mentioned it last week. Apparently it has something to do with the TV show Numb3rs, but it doesn’t really influence the game play.

1-Day Acuvue Moist contacts
These are the only contacts I’ve found so far that aren’t stuck to my eyeballs at the end of the day.

teeny tiny bobby pins
I’m fairly sure these 1.25-inch bobby pins were meant to be decorative, but they are tiny and lightweight and work with my fine hair when I need to pin my bangs out of the way. I’ve been losing them one by one and hope these at Sally Beauty are the same size. Or maybe these rubberized mini bobby pins would work even better?

titanium drill bits
This weekend the combination of an old house and new Ikea ceiling light fixtures required that we drill a few new holes in the metal back in order to secure it in place. Then we discovered the Ikea low energy bulb did not fit in the fixture we’d bought. Why? Oh why?

    Since I can barely stand Blue Moon, I will definitely keep my distance from Rising Moon.

    Have you ever tried 1 day Soflens 66 by B&L? They’re so wet and slippery, they sometimes slide off your finger when you try to put them on. I used to wear Acuvue 1 day, but found Soflens to be more comfortable. Also, they’re so comfortable, I wear than longer than 1 day, 2 to 3, so to prolong having to buy more.

    I was addicted to the same game until I found this one

    i’m trialling j&j OAsis at the moment and loving them… but i have a voucher for the Moist and think i’ll try those too. its been ages since i upgraded my contact brand that the difference is SO noticable! the old ones are like sheets of paper in comparison!

    I hate Blue Moon, but love all things lime, so I think I’ll have to try Rising Moon, even against my better judgement. Thanks for the heads up.

    I have fine hair too, and I have to say that the Ricky’s hair rubbers are amazing. All of their products. I can’t give you a comparison review as I haven’t used the ones you currently have, but I can definitely encourage you to try them out! :)

    I’m glad they are available through mail order now. I was panicked when I moved from NYC that I would never be able to get my hands on them again, so I stocked up.

    I just discovered Acuvue Moist lenses too – they are the best lenses my dry, sensitive eyes have ever worn!
