Better Late and Lame than Never

I'm horrible with tags. Just horrible as the few of you who have tagged me well know. Nothing personal, I just lack follow through, technical ability and the creativity to actually answer the questions.

But I'm trying here.

A few months back I was tagged by the lovely Elana.

The rules for this one is to admit 5 addictions and then pass it onto another 5 blogs…

1. Currently Pringles. Please someone confiscate these things from me.

2. Retin A. I have pretty bad adult acne and this stuff is the only thing that works for me. Of course, while pregnant, during cycles and when breast feeding I cannot use it. Which pretty-much encompasses the past 5 years of my life. I think I had clear skin for about 8 months back in 2003.

3. Radio- I have it on all day at my computer and I also have it on all night. Since I got married I have a small transistor radio with an earpiece. I keep it on low volume all night. I could not sleep with out some white noise drowning out my own very loud thoughts.

4. J-crew. I am truly shameful both in the amount of clothes I buy from them and the fact that I buy all my clothes from them. I think that is considered a fashion "no-no". The truth is I hate shopping but I love looking put together so I just shop the on-line store or e-bay. All the stuff works together and I have a mix and match wordrobe (like an adult version of garanimals). And now, thanks to the First Lady, my own little treasure-chest will be discovered by the rest of America. Damn.

5. Twisting my hair. I do it all the time. I know it's looks stupid and unprofessional but I can't seem to muster up the amount of caring needed to stop. Sometimes I get bald spots (dime sized) and then tufts of hair that stick up when they grow out, Alfalfa style.

If you are a blog I follow consider yourself tagged. I think you are all fabulous!

I have to sleep with the TV on at night... I have to have noise otherwise I can't sleep. If the TV goes off for whatever reason sometime during the night, I wake up instantly... It's sooo weird! I think it's because I shared a room all growing up and always had some sort of noise in the room because of my sister... Then when I suddenly got my own room I wasn't used to silence so I had to fill the room with some sort of noise... That and the bipolar disorder has my mind racing all the time... the TV helps to keep my mind focused on one thing...

Garanimals! Man, I loved that stuff as a kid.

I am a radio girl too, although I have switched over to online news during the day (since I never seem to watch any other time) and podcasts of my favorite programs.

I'm with you on #5! I am constantly playing, twisting, knotting my hair. I can't stop!

A suggested alternative to Retin-A. I suffered from adult acne for more than 20 years. I even tried acutane (which is brutal), which worked for about a year, then the acne came back.

About 2 years ago I discovered Neutrogena's Advanced Care acne treatment. It's kind of like Proactiv, but not nearly as harsh. The only thing I do different from what they suggest is that I moisturize at night before I put on the "night" treatment stuff.

It's come very close to curing my acne, as long as I keep using it. (A few days away from it and I break out again.) And it's allowed me to start moisturizing again, which is critical at my ... ahem ... age.

As for the Pringles addiction, can't help you there. There is no substitute.

Just a suggestion. Because adult acne is SO NOT FAIR!!!
