The Vine: January 25, 2013
One for the great Red Cloudsource: I watched a movie when I was very young and only remember bits and pieces, but it is now bugging me as I cannot remember the name and I am starting to wonder if I made it up (I didn't, I promise).
Basic premise: a young blonde girl who LOVED horses and passed one on her way to school every day. When she was a little older there was some weird competition she excelled at where she jumped, with the horse, from the top of a "diving board"-type deal into a pool below.
One of these jumps went wrong and I think she was partially blinded, could be wrong but I can't remember if this was a permanent injury or just a temporary, partial one.
- There is a round cage someone brings to her house that they ride a motorcycle around in and I think they use this as some sort of sensory experience for her, as this part happened after the accident, so she could touch the cage and feel and hear the motorcycle going round in circles.
- oFr some strange reason I keep thinking the lead was Samantha Mathis but it wasn't. I IMDB'd and definitely not her; I think she was way too young anyway as I believe I saw this anytime from 1980 – 1997ish?
I just read through what I've written and it sounds ludicrous but I am convinced this exists, and that I saw it.
Hello Tomato Nation! I'm desperate for some suggestions of moisturizers to replace my now-discontinued Dove Deep Moisture Facial Lotion (may it rest in peace). I managed to find a stash at the pharmacy in the tiny country town I live in, but my stash is now dwindling and I can't afford to pay the astronomical prices for someone else's stash on eBay.
I'm 30 years old but prone to hormonal cystic acne along my jawline, and everything else I've tried (recently Philosophy's Hope in a Jar and something basic from the Simple line for sensitive skin, and before that most other things I could think of from the pharmacy, including Cetaphil, Oil of Olay, Clean & Clear, Aveeno, and probably many others I'm forgetting — this has been a life-long search) has aggravated my acne. I would describe my skin as somewhat sensitive combination skin, very fair, a little blotchy and prone to getting sunburnt during the summer.
I'm also noticing some crepiness around my eyes, but that's not my primary concern right now, as at this stage in the game I'm just desperate to get rid of this acne! Or at least not make it worse.
I'm looking for a light moisturizer (I think probably a lotion, rather than a cream), something that won't cost me an extravagant sum of money, something that has an SPF, and something that is available in Canada. Bonus points if you think it bears any resemblance to my beloved Dove.
I'm too old for this shit
