Its 4 in the AM and I am awake!

Yuppers! Thats what happens when you've successfully mastered waking up at 2 or 3pm everyday. Well todays reason I can explain a little well. So today I woke up at 7am because it got so so soooo cold. I woke up, turned on my space heater, put sweat pants on, hoodie on, socks on, tons of blankets on and just couldn't sleep. I am one of those with poor circulation and yada yada so my body takes much longer to heat or warm up. So yeah then I was awake till 1 and then fell asleep again till 4. Man its been cold. My back and everything has been sore because I keep shaking due to the cold and just clenching my body in general. I guess the cold makes people hungry and want to eat a lot of food. I ate a whole chicken finger sub and three grease-smeared garlic knots in less than 10 minutes with a side of ocean spray cranberry juice (light). LOL. What else? Life's weird now. All I can think of at this moment is just to thank God that I have running heat, running hot water, warm clothes and food to eat. There are people dying in numbers everyday (Gaza at the moment) and there are people like us who have everything yet find something to complain about. Okay, although I bid you goodnite here, I am actually STILL not sleepy~argh! ki kora jaey (what to do in bangla)! Just watch informercials and browse. Toodles~

I got bit by a spider :(

So, um yeah, 2 days ago I was fast asleep and woke up with a hard itch on my hand at 7ish (went to bed 3ish)...kept scratching and immediately ruled it out as bed bug bite then noticed later that it was actually a spider. Jeez Louise!!! Why me and why a spider! This reminds me of the time when I was visiting Bangladesh and a (gasp) rat climbed on my face while I was sleeping! I kid you not! I, like many girls, and boys and old grown men am very afraid of bugs, rodents and creeps but to no avail---they somehow always find a way into my life! Anyways, after much benadryl application, benadryl consumption and eucalyptus oil slathering I am okay! Alive! It took 2 days to heal and I am still left with this wrinkly, raspberry colored spot but will do, that itch was to die for, literally! I could have amputated my hand it was that annoying! So yeah I am so excited for Jan 20th and Jan 21st:

Obama's Inaugural Ceremony: Jan 20th
LOST Season 5: Jan 21st

Yummy things!
Oh and yes over here, its a wonderful 9F (and feels like -9F)

Golden Globes and more...

So it was a thrill watching the Golden Globes tonight, especially because 'Slumdog Millionaire' sweeped so many awards, including Best Motion Picture. I think Danny Boyle is pure genius, he made this movie what it is. I was particularly irked when they mispronounced A.R. Rahman's name twice. The second time David Duchovny came on stage to present an award and prior to doing that he goes: 'The person who won the award his name is actually A.R. Rumen'. I was just like attempt to correct it you mess it up even more. Anyways, it was nice seeing the show. I was so happy that
Kate Winslet, Laura Linney and Wall-E won awards. So guys, its funny how at the end of the day natural remedies are the best remedies. Remember I was using that Clean and Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment for like 6 months, we-ell, that one busted my skin a lot and left a hell lotta scabs on my face that I have been trying to get rid till now. But last week I went and purchased Burt's Bees Herbal Blemish Stick which is 100% natural and is basically a concoction of various oils suspended in natural alcohol. This thing has been working amazing. I mean it has dried out a few pimples and is not making them any worse or leaving scabs behind. I still have a long way to go in terms of getting scab marks lightened but just seeing a slight improvement makes me feel so much better! Stay away from that Clean and Clear spot treatment, it's pure evil!

Happy New Year

So yeah, things have been kinda slow. I mean its the new year and all but everywhere you look, there's devastating news all around. The whole ongoing Gaza episode just makes me nauseous because on one side there's that and on the other side there's people ushering in the new year with much joyfulness. I mean to each their own, but I just couldn't do it. I never really did anything on new years except for sit around and watch basic cable. I have been thinking how to be more optimistic this new year and once I find a really good reason to be so, I will let you know. Oh fyi, MAC is having a 25% off sale on their website right now until the 8th or 9th I think. So for makeup junkies, couldn't be a better time to get goodies. On a completely different note, how did Valerie Bertinelli get so so thin, dang that jenny craig diet.

Stop the war

Dear Readers,

The current situation in Gaza is beyond upsetting and although as mere civilians theres not much we can do but we can do little things. I always think like this: It could have been one of my loved ones or me.
