Retraction

Remember the post where I recommended you buy this candle?



Hopefully you didn't run out and buy it.

I lit mine for the SECOND time today, and get this: it wouldn't burn. It had gone all the way down to the bottom, and I only burned it once for like maybe 6 hours. Hello! I thought soy was supposed to burn slower/longer than parafin? Or whatever other candles are made from.

I was very disappointed. So, although I love the citrusy cilantro smell (so subtle! so fresh!), at 7.99 a pop, I can't afford to buy any more of them. That's nearly $2 every time hour of burn time. So Yankee Candle Company, you've got me back. I just discovered they now have an all natural soy line. Hopefully I like some of the smells. (Pumpkin? Yes. I love pumpkin.)

And in case the above paragraph didn't tip you off, a budget post is in the works. Just a little something to whet your appetite!

In other news, I've decided to go back to using capitals. I've always used them when I type blog posts or journal entries, but never when I'm on Facebook or emailing. I thought it was cute and fast and figured since I KNEW the rules (oh, do I know the rules) I was allowed to break them. Well, I had a change of heart tonight and decided to take capitalization back by storm. Shift key, here I come.

Is it totally retarded that I posted about this? If so, keep it to yourself.

Your dad will be so relieved that his English major daughter is writing the way she was educated!!
As you know from all the papers you wrote and he looked over when you were home, that he does like things done correctly.

We're so proud. What prompted the change?

Woodwich candles are far and above the best you can get. I love their scents - they have an amazing pumpkin spice, vanilla, spiced eggnog, etc. etc. Plus they don't have those annoying huge YANKEE STICKERS on the front. Just google woodwick candles.

i'm not getting back into caps anytime soon. you can try to convince me. go ahead. try. because now i'm worried there's something i don't know.

You can cap or write about anything as long as it's not about barfing.

Oh Mark. It's my blog! I can write about whatever I want. And I will.

Good to see b/c to be honest I have been frustrated with all method products. I bought some cleaning wipes and after opening them once the rest dried out even though the cap was closed tightly.

Worse than that is that I threw them away in anger and it happened to be the day my mom visited and she was completely disappointed in me for throwing them away since I could've just re-wetted them. I ended up giving them to her and then had to hear her complain about how streaky they were.

Fun experience.
