indulgence

i just got my first-ever facial today! (keep the dirty jokes to yourself, please.) it was the most incredible, relaxing, indulgent, pampered experience i've ever had - basically an hour-long face massage (with a tiny bit of painful pore-squeezing for a few minutes in the middle - but the next half hour of glorious face massage made me forget all about that).

my face was literally glowing at the end. i let them convince me to buy some overpriced cleanser and toner by "skinceuticals." they actually did very little pressuring, but i think i just wanted to continue the feeling of indulgent beautifying pampering. and nothing says indulgent beautifying like $25 face wash.

speaking of indulgence, i've mostly been vegging out this week, trying to recover from my cold, and enjoying my last bit of freedom. yesterday me and a friend watched 10 one-hour episodes of Six Feet Under on dvd. ten hours!! we were basically in a coma by the end. it was awesome.

    Are you a hypochondriac? You seem to be sick or recovering from sickness most of the time.

    I have been sick too. I just have a sore throat with a bunch of mucus. Otherwise I am fine, but it is kind of annoying.

    Damn, persistant cold...

    which season of six feet under? I like that show. With series like that I prefer to wait for the DVD's and then watch an entire season in one or two marathon viewing sessions.

    That is awsome. HBO makes the best shows on TV by far IMO.

    it's "ilona". one L. i took the name from the classic beverly cleary book "ramona the pest". i've been meaning to write a post addressing that. i'll get around to it one of these days.

    yes - thanks for the recommendation. i remember you telling me that you let them convince you to buy some products, and i think that was part of why i let myself go for it, too. :) my skin thanks you!
