Sasha & Malia would love this stuff...

Hi ladies,
THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY OF OUR LIVES IS HERE!! Have you voted yet? I'm going the second I finish this post! I'm just mad I can't wear my fancy Obama pin (my girlfriend gave it to me yesterday...it's all crafty and decorated with feathers and sequins and stuff. Very Trannies of America Heart Obama). I don't want to get prematurely cozy with this whole thing, but the idea of bringing my little lady into the world the same month that our first black president is elected--and it's more than that, it's that it's HIM--well, it makes me want to burst with pride. It's just so sad that his grandma couldn't be here to see it. Okay, must stop. Don't want to count chickens or jinx the moment.

But I just can't imagine a world where he wouldn't win (she said very very quietly)...

So let's talk beauty for a quick moment. I recently bought Kiehls Superbly Restorative Argan Skin Salve ($25) as a baby moisturizer, and have decided that I need it more than the Lil Diva. Blended with patchouli, orange, cedarwood, and fair-trade Moroccan Argan oils, this intense salve is GENIUS...and it does everything. You just run your fingers over the hard salve, rub them together to melt it into a luxurious oil, and apply it wherever you need a moisture surge. I use it on my elbows, as massage oil (very necessary these days...thanks Sunshine!), on my cuticles, my lips, and even on the ends of my hair. It's definitely become a staple in my bathroom, and I plan to get another one for my bag. Worth every last dime of the $25! Now that I'm all moisturized and silky-soft, I'm on my way to Barack the Vote...
Happy Election Day,

I bought the Kiehls Superbly Restorative Argan Skin Salve and the Superbly Restorative Dry Oil recently. I must completely agree. I love it. The salve is a perfect remedy for extra dry skin and a little goes a long way. I love the oil too.

It's the perfect remedy to start combating the change in season.

Yay Tia on the way to Barack The Vote . Some of my co-workers are not voting and I can’t help but give them “The Look”. I voted absentee, so I avoided the lines. I hope you and the little one don't have to wait outside too long. I had my own Obama pin which I put on my weekend bag, but it didn't make it out of the airport. I'm thinking someone snatched it off when I wasn't looking. If this is true I hope someone saw them do it and they got "The Look" too!

Thank you for articulating my feelings about Barack.
All day I have been feeling as though I will just burst with pride. As you say it is because of Barack and not just because he is Black.
BTW love Kiehls and have to run out and buy this recommendation.
Eve Lom's, creme universelle is similar from your description you might want to check it out.

I didn't go to the rally, but I heard it was AWESOME!!! It was well-attended: they let us leave work early because public transportation was so tied up :)

I can tell you this-the whole vibe of the city is electrified. You can feel it in the air. I can't describe what it's like to be living in the land of Obama, but I feel so blessed to be able to experience it.

So happy for the baby to come into the world at this time. So exciting! Oh, Tia. Stealing the baby's beauty stuff already :)

For those of you out there who don't already know, Cave is porting their gothic arcade shooter DeathSmiles to the Xbox 360 in Japan. The game represents only the second horizontal shooter from Cave and is unlike anything else they've developed before. wow goldThe spooky theme of the game, not to mention the manic game play, gives the game a very unique look and feel to it. Considering the arcade PCB still retails for in excess of $2500, it's a safe bet that shooter fans are quite happy that Cave is bringing the game over to the Xbox 360 console. wow goldThe game is set for release in Japan sometime during Spring 2009. It's nice to see Cave still taking the time and spending the money to bring their amazing shooters to the home consoles. Let's hope this streak continues. I'll have impressions of the game as soon as it's released in Japan

I still remember the hell I caught when I posted a blog entry stating that Star Ocean: First Departure was coming to the US. I can't count the number of emails I got telling me that there was no way this game would be coming to the US since the Super Famicom original never made it stateside. world of warcraft goldbuy wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelingeverquest 2 goldeq2 platfinal fantasy 11 cheap gilbuy ffxi gilffxi gilfinal fantasy xi gilmaple story mesosmaplestory mesosmaplestory mesolotro goldlotr goldlord of the ring goldWell now that the game has been released here in the US, I'd like to thank all of those who tried to save me from utter embarrassment. What would I do without you guys? Okay now that I got that out of my system, it's time to talk about the actual game. runescape goldrunescape moneysilkroad goldbuy silkroad golddofus kamaskamas dofuswarhammer goldbuy warhammer gold flyff penyabuy flyff goldflyff moneyeve iskeve online iskarchlord goldbuy archlord goldstar wars galaxiesswg creditsI recently played all the way through the original Super Famicom version of Star Ocean so I'd be good and ready to play this updated version. The first thing that blew me away was the 3-D presentation of the game. It took a little getting used to, but so far it's proving to be quite the impressive visual tour de force. The music in the game isn't too shabby either and really does a great job of carrying the original mood of the music with a much more orchestrated and full-sounding presentation.
