State Fair


We went to the Missouri state fair in Sedalia! Apart from the best corn dogs EVER (because they were free!), we saw: tractor pulls, horses pulling heavy stuff, award winning hams and flowers, BUNNIES!, chicks that had just hatched (beneath a sign saying "popcorn chicken" bwahaha! sigh), pig races, Ferris wheels, slides and roller coasters, a robot exhibit, a silly western show, andandand...

Oh, and on our way driving there we passed Whiteman air force base and a freakin' huge, triangular stealth bomber flew right over us! I was too busy saying "WHATTHEHELL IS THAT!?" to take a good photo, unfortunately.

Julie & Julia

I've heard great things about the new movie "Julie & Julia", with Meryl Streep playing famed chef Julia Child and Amy Adams playing a food blogger who cooks every recipe in Child's famous book "Mastering the Art of French Cooking". The previews I've seen just annoyed the heck out of me, especially Meryl Streep who keeps reminding me of her over-the-top role in "Mamma Mia", so I'm not in too much of a hurry to see this one.

Plus, nobody can beat Dan Aykroyd when it comes to impersonating Julia Child:

Dove Visibly Smooth deodorant review & coupon giveaway


I was among the lucky few who received the new Dove Visibly Smooth deodorant before it even came on the market - a deodorant that claims to "make underarm hair look and feel less noticeable over time" and "help you feel stubble free for longer". I've been using it for a while now and while I can't say I've seen any dramatic effects, it IS a very good deodorant, smells nice ("wild rose"), and maybe, just maybe, does soften the stubble a little bit...

I also received a TON of $2 off coupons good for this specific deodorant. If anybody's interested, go ahead and email me thru my profile; I'll be more than happy to send out a few coupons to the first five or so people (within the U.S.).
