This Town Is Coming Like A Ghost Town

Part way to the train station this morning I started to doubt myself, whether it really was a work day today after all. The streets, deserted. The train, no soul in sight. I didn't even know there were tumbleweeds in Newtown?...

I mean really, if I have to suffer through returning to work today I would at least like a little company, you know? Someone to share a rueful half smile with maybe. A little bit of solidarity, is that too much to ask?

The office is likewise pretty deserted. I think only myself and one other member of my 4 person department are here for the rest of the week, which will be quite nice (so long as the bloody phone stays quiet that is). Even better news, my airconditioning nemesis is off this week!

Can you feel the delicious cool? Are you feeling that tingly frisson of almost nipple-ishness? Ah, that's not just the cold air my friends that's the sweet, sweet charge of victory.

can relate. Most of my office is in today, and they do seem to be expecting productivity.

On Day One.

Trying to give them what they seem to want.

Ah the joys of it all!!!

Many people feel that their title="acne" href="" >acne< is overly

embarrassing and
unmanageable. I have read story after story of heartache, especially
from teens that endure heartless bullying from schoolmates. There are
so many different remedies and medications. What most people fail to
realise is that each individual has a different biological makeup and
what works for one person may not work for everyone. In some cases
certain acne treatment can adversely affect already irritated skin.
This further causes unnecessary embarrassment and frustration to an
already uncomfortable situation.
Propaganda fuels misconceptions about different so-called remedies and
even causes. The idea that chocolate and oily food causes acne. When in
truth, makeup, unhealthy skin and even perspiration can cause acne.
All of these factors affect the skin. But even your skin makeup can
affect your skin and create back acne, scalp acne, large assesses or
ingrown hair. There is an acne questionnaire done by a company called
Skinmed that will help to diagnose acne problems through a series of
questions, and then it n recommends the best acne treatment for each
Teen acne is typically the most difficult to diagnose because of
hormonal considerations, but there is a special area meant just for
teen acne that has a completely different set of rules when running the
formula that determines the best medications or treatments. In some
cases simple changes in hygiene and daily washing is all that it takes.
The site also has a title "free acne/rosacea cream" title="acne"

href="" >free acne treatment/a that is made up
of a three step process. The primary reason most teens, especially boys
tend to have more problems with chronic acne is because of a lack of
simply washing their face regularly. So this treatment is free is a way
to create a healthy daily routine, while gently healing the skin to
prevent acne scarring brought on as a result of squeezing the sores.
Once daily cleaning is practices, and hormonal issues are taken into
consideration, a proper treatment regiment can be highly affective.
At the end of the day most acne, even teen acne , can be eliminated
quickly and permanently with the right motivation. After all, we all
want to be beautiful don’t we?

and how come u got blog-spam on this one?

Thought it may ahve been to do with your "First Testimonial" post and someone had set up a blog search alert with "rosacea" or some such. But why post it on this one?

Life's little mysteries sure are mysterious!
