Soooo, tonights true confession. I bought an 8 pack of disposable shower hats so I can sit in my hot tub in the pouring rain and keep my hair dry. I am partly amused and partly horrified I actually am putting a polka dot shower cap on my head and sitting outside in the rain. Midlife humiliation is here. lol

Hmmm, I’m not exactly _loathe _ to admit using, as I’ve mentioned it before, but I use Johnson’s Baby Shampoo, and Dreft Laundry Detergent.

Coloma's avatar

@HungryGuy Awww, I bet you smell like a babys bottom. lol

Toilet paper from WalMart.

@Coloma – I have sensitive skin, so I use unscented products free of dyes and perfumes :-p

A VCR for my Denise Austin workout VHS tapes. (her kickboxing workout isn’t on DVD. what’s a girl to do?)

I own a leopard print snuggie that is my favorite thing in winter. And a ped-egg. That thing is a miracle worker for summer. I don’t want janky sandal feet.

I rub my face in lemon juice whenever I think I see a wrinkle.

One of the most cherished things I own is a pair of high quality tweezers.

Warning: TMI ahead.

I find it truly revolting to see mature men with hair coming out of their ears, so when I started noticing the odd hair growing out of/near my ear canals (I am in my late 30s after all) I started tweezing religiously. I probably spend over an hour total each week plucking every square millimeter of skin on both ears. In a strange way, it’s satisfying to finally get that single hair that I’ve been plucking at for 10 minutes. (told you the post was TMI!)

I have gone to the local drug store for the sole purpose of buying a replacement pair when I couldn’t find my usual ones.

I should have listened to the warning

Told ya, lemon-face!

Strategy guides or online guides when I’m stuck in a video game. Fuckin puzzles involving blocks. I hate blocks! Goddamn blocks.

I use Nivea body moisture lotion (with vitamin E) on my face after I shave and or after a shower.

@Symbeline – Minecraft, eh?

Coloma's avatar

@FutureMemory

Hahaha, hey, I salute you, I agree, nothing worse than old man nose and ear hair. lol

FutureMemory's avatar

@Coloma Right? Ugh!

One thing though, Coloma… I do refuse to shave my balls.

Coloma's avatar

@FutureMemory LOL..well, you might be surprised at how sensual it would make you feel. ;-P

FutureMemory's avatar

Hmmm…haha ;)

Berserker's avatar

@HungryGuy I don’t even understand what you’re supposed to do in Minecraft. XD

HungryGuy's avatar

@Symbeline – Just mine raw materials and build shit, build huge complex buildings, then blow it all the hell up! That’s about it :-p

Berserker's avatar

Oh you mean that super evolved sim game thing that came out…I thought you meant that game that all PC’s come with, where you gotta like, disarm bombs or something by clicking on squares and engaging in some mathematical activity or another…

Coloma's avatar

Well, just be glad you can see to disarm the bombs, shit, I had to use a magnifying glass and my dorky reading glasses to read the freakin’ manual my new camera came with. The icons are about the size of a fruit fly egg…WTF, nobody can read that microscopic print. lol

HungryGuy's avatar

@Symbeline – Oh? You were thinking of Minesweeper. I got addicted to it briefly one time a long time ago, but then lost interest. Same thing with Angry Birds.

Berserker's avatar

That’s it, Minesweeper. lol

Also lmfao, fruit fly egg print. XD

I use Mennen Speed Stick deoderant for men, fresh scent because it’s the only deoderant that I like the smell of. I’m a female by the way. It’s kind of pine/floral scented. Most women’s deoderant has an icky cloying strong smell to it. I’ve spent hours in the deoderant aisle smelling them all, until I found this one. Mennen makes other scents, including female scents, but I don’t like any of them except Mennen fresh scent for men.

I confess.
About three to four times per week I eat a few of those (in)famous blue dragées.
But the green, orange, red, and brown ones I like too.

Kardamom's avatar

@rebbel What are dragées? Are they like skittles?

SpatzieLover's avatar

M&Ms m’dear

Kardamom's avatar

@SpatzieLover Oh, I’ve never heard them called that before. Is that a European term? Now I’m craving M&M’s.

SpatzieLover's avatar

I think it’s either french or? for fancy little chocolates. I only know the term because I use dragees at x-mas on cookies ;) @Kardamom.

Berserker's avatar

Just for the record; Skittles rule.

Coloma's avatar

@Symbeline

Nuh uh,,,Whoppers rule! LOL

Berserker's avatar

Not arguing with that one. Love em Whoppers mesself! They rule!

Berserker's avatar

They rule, I tell ya.

Coloma's avatar

Have you had Strawberry milkshake Whoppers? OMG! ;-P

Berserker's avatar

Please don’t tell me that’s actually something that exists? I might try it in slurpee form though

Coloma's avatar

Yep, it’s true, they are amazing, look for the Pink Whoppers carton. :-D

I still love wine coolers. They sell them in the stores, so I know I’m not the only one, yet have never met anyone who will admit to admit to it.

I also have kayaking gloves that I wear when I drive to protect my hands from the sun (they are SPF 40). I look like a fool wearing them.
