some "products" i have tried out recently:
colgate total. mmm. i love the way this tastes. i realize that "love" is a strong word for me to use to describe the way i feel about a toothpaste flavor. it's much stronger than, say: "can tolerate." 'cause the toothpaste tastes that good. it's true. they say that electric toothbushes seem to "work better" than regular brushing because people brush their teeth for longer with them. i could brush my teeth all the live-long day with this stuff. *busha brusha brusha.*
some asian-y-styled shampoo called "tao te" or some such nonsense. it smells great and herbal-tea-ish in the bottle, but after lathering and rinsing (and repeating) it smells like some really rank men's cologne and every time i get a whiff of my own hair i want to gag a little.
altoids strips - unlike the listerine strips - are good-tasting and non-tongue-burning. pepperminty, even.
a grand don't come for free, the new album from the streets. i'm diggin' it. speaking of calling a CD "product" - when i was in college at the radio station we had a running joke about asking the record company reps to "slip us some product" and then that degenerated into our calling any records or merchandising "wet elephant product" but i don't remember how we got to that joke. we also had a joke about "laughing so hard we broke all the furniture" but i don't remember the origins of that one either. i can't remember the sources of my collegiate "schtick"! what's next? not remembering french? oh. um, no. i mean, non. oh -- merde!
