Warning: I'm about to talk about tampon commercials XD

Every time I see these ads for Kotex U, I literally laugh out loud.

I watched this twice just when I was looking for it to post on here, and I laughed both times. Okay, then there's this one.

And I saw this one in a magazine:

It makes fun of how awkward people get about it. You can't see it at the bottom, but it says something like "Why are 40% of people uncomfortable with tampons? Break the cycle." I think this is hilarious. Also effective advertising. There's a New York Times article here about this (also where I got the picture).

Dear Kotex,
Your commercials made me laugh, so to thank you, I might buy your stuff. You're funnier than Tampax.


Checking to see if this works.

Who's your Justin Bieber?

I just read this blog post about the 90s prettyboy celebrities and I thought I would share since I know about 3/4 of them. Jonathon Taylor Thomas was my first celebrity crush when I was I think 6. I remember watching "Home Improvement" just for the parts with him in it and I wouldn't pay attention to the rest of the show. I still have a couple of his random movies on VHS that I used to watch over and over before we moved.

Fun fact: He was the voice of Simba in The Lion King. I just found that out recently and felt kind of stupid.

Here's another one. I still love Rider Strong. His character Shawn Hunter on "Boy Meets World," the bad boy with the good heart, was probably the best character on the show. "Boy Meets World" is a great show in general. I was thinking in Psych this morning about how I miss that show.

So whenever I think of my sisters' friends and obsessions with Justin Bieber and Nick Jonas, I think of these guys, and I really can't judge.

"1000 Awesome Things"

I read this blog all the time. This is where I got the idea for those happy lists I make. I thought this was cute.

Sketchers Shape-ups

My sister and I are always joking about these things. They're these sneakers that are supposed to improve your posture, balance, muscles, while you walk. We're always laughing them whenever we see them.

Well, we were in the Sketchers store today and decided to try them on for a laugh. DUDE these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn! They have this foam in the bottom that's all cushy and squishy. I wouldn't pay $100 for that, but I walked around the store in those things for a while completely amazed and received a lot of funny looks.

Dorky but seriously comfy. Actually, only the brown ones look bad. The ones I tried on were pink. ^_^

What are my secrets?

I'm one of those people that doesn't really have any secrets. I was thinking about this last night, and when I was trying to sleep, I started thinking about how I tell people just about everything about me (Obviously. I'm babbling about myself on the internet again). To fall asleep, I usually ask myself a question that's hard to answer. So I asked myself, What are my secrets?

I started thinking about all the things I don't like to talk about. Even though there aren't many things, I realized that I do have secrets. Everyone has secrets. Some are serious and can eat people alive, but little secrets can be kind of fun. I'm reading The Picture of Dorian Gray, and one of the characters says "the commonest thing is delightful if one only hides it."

It's kind of like back in 5th grade when telling someone about the boy you liked was a major gesture of friendship, sealed with a pinky promise swearing you to secrecy. It wasn't a big deal, but it was privileged information, which made it significant.

So I was thinking today about my own list, and I decided to write it down, but for some reason, I couldn't make myself write them down because I didn't want to see them in print. For the same reason I've never been able to have a diary, I think secret thoughts that are never spoken are nothing more than thoughts. You can definitely convince yourself that they're not real because not you or anyone else can see or hear them. Secrets only become true once they're out, and once someone knows, there's no turning back.
