Did The Earth Just Tilt?

This morning, I was talking to my friend Lisa who lives in San Francisco. "Something really bad happened," she said. "Did you father die?," I asked (he's been very sick.) "No." Then I asked, "Did Rock (her ex) get married?" "No." She added, "But I would be really upset if he did."

She paused, then said, "Casswell-Massey is no longer making Old-Fashioned Milk Bath bubble bath." I know I shouldn't joke about this. She loves this stuff. But of all of the things it could have been...shaking head.


"Adieu, Lisa"

They could just put milk in the bottle with some soap to make it sudsy - wouldn't that do the trick?

Scientific studies have shown that women spend, on average, 26.7% of their net income on cosmetics and related stuff. To show just how out-of-control most women are when it comes to cosmetics and related stuff, I intend to go down to my local 7-11 and buy 1% milk, pour it in a fancy bottle and call it, Lait Pour des Filles No. 9 and sell it for $13.99. I'll be rich, I tell you, rich.

Holy cripes. 26.7% of their net income? Wow.

Good plan, but how will you combat the curdling of milk effect? Plenty of women will be waltzing around smelling rotten.

I've taken maybe 3 baths in my life. I just don't get the lure of sitting in one's own filth. But that's just me. I also don't sit on public toilet seats.

I can commiserate with Lisa because I am distressed that there are no Body and Bath Shops in D.C. anymore. I loved their line of men's soaps - both bars and liquid body washes. I have to resort to inferior brands now that have names like: Dry Musk of the Summer Pine Forest or Rotting Driftwood in Ocean Spray.

It's interesting, Cube, that in the animal kingdom human-kind is the rare species where the females must do all they do to attract the male rather than the other way around.

I am emotionally attached to ALL my cosmetic/beauty products. I don't even like it when they change the look of the package.

I'm with Smash. Even new packaging can rock my world-- heaven forbid they change the formula!

Sometimes it's the smallest things that affect us in the biggest ways!

Let's face it we're all basically creatures of habit. For many of us that word ORIGINAL on a product is what keeps us coming back. But I think 26.7% is a little steep, depending on what that "related stuff" really consists of.

Wow -- this is an odd coincidence, but I found on wikiHow recently a few articles that might amuse and satisfy Lisa’s (others?) momentary loss of a favorite product.

- http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Chocolate-Bubble-Bath
- http://www.wikihow.com/Bathe-Like-an-Ancient-King-And/or-Queen
- http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Your-Own-Bath-Salts
- http://www.wikihow.com/Use-Honey-in-the-Bath

Not only can you live the life of luxury, but be frugal at the same time. What's better than finding your favorite products on this much of a "sale"?

And thaimex? Do you really think the female of our species is trying to win the male through this quirky self-indulgence? I rather have the perspective that they are only posturing to appear dominant to other females with their eye on the same male. Women have the more sophisticated sense of smell, more keen observation senses, and quite honestly if women have those magical sought after qualities (ie: both T & A… and can cook)? I daresay most guys are happier than pigs, completely ignorant of what almond, jasmine and tsetse musk your bathwater smells like. {cough-oink-cough}

Now you know how I felt when Trader Joe's stopped carrying those wasabi coated cashews, which were far superior to the peanuts.

I went into a slight state of withdrawal when St. Ives got rid of their blue Clay Mask. I used to use it in college.

Anytime my father and Godfather could make the comment that my skin was glowing (and men like these don't gush about women's cosmetics)You know the stuff is doing its job.

Beauty treatments are fleeting *le sigh*

Indeed, Thaimex. It's funny I am planning on posting something about that very soon.

Oh and Cube...sorry for your friend?
