Five Things Friday

1. I've been scraping the bottom of my moisturizer bottle for a few weeks now, and usually manage to get just enough out of it.  This morning, that wasn't happening, but I could see some still in the bottom that the pump couldn't reach, so I got out the exact-o knife, and lopped the top off.  I was amazed how much moisturizer was still stuck in what I'll call the shoulders of the bottle.  At least two week's worth!  I have a backup bottle that I've already bought, but I can hang onto this one for quite a bit longer and use up every last little bit--that feels good.

2. My allergies have been out of control this past week.  I don't even know what it is that I'm allergic to, but I'm stuffed up, foggy, headache-y, my eyeballs hurt, and I generally feel like I'm hungover all the time, which sucks.  Thankfully, I have a huge stash of allergy pills, and since I get them so cheaply, I'm not trying to ration them aggressively like I used to do when I was taking Claritan.  Doubling up the dosage has helped significantly.

3. I don't much care for the original, but I like this version.  And there's kittens!  Kittens on the internet, who would have though?

4. I spilled water all over myself as soon as I got to work.  This reminds me to be grateful A. That it wasn't coffee and B. That I have an office I can hide out in while my shirt and pants dry.  I'm also pretty glad I'm wearing a blouse-y shirt that dries quickly.

5. On Fridays, Gentleman Scholar and I make homemade pizza and watch a bad movie (sometimes we watch a good one, but usually it's a 'so bad it's good' one).  Tonight's offerings are homemade pizza with green olives, farm fresh tomatoes from my veggie box and mushrooms.  We will be consuming that while watching the classic Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino pairing: The Devil's Advocate.  I saw this one on video way back when it came out, but I don't remember it that well. I was re-reminded of it via the How Did This Get Made? podcast, and decided that it would be a perfect addition to Pizza + Bad Movie Friday.  I'm pretty stoked.


  1. Rabbit pose and the hot room both helpful for allergies. Love, your favorite yoga teacher. :)

  2. I do like to see bottles cut open. It is amazing how much product is left. I'm slowly training my teenage daughter not to thow things in the bin until every last scrap has been used.
