Bath Time!

Just like in the olden days I take a bath about once a month.
(Unlike the olden days I take a shower pretty much daily.)

And now that we have water pressure again I can finally use the tub 
and test out my Milk and Cookeez cupcake. 

It's a two parter. The bottom or "cake" is like a huge alka seltzer tab of good smellin' bath stuff.
And the top or "frosting" is soap. It's fun and smells awesome. The soap even kinda tastes sweet. BUT DON'T TASTE IT. It takes a turn after the initial lick. 

This is definitely soap.

Is the soup hawaii delicacy ???

Wiccababe said...

lol, don't soak too long, you'll come out looking like a prune

Unknown said...

you're too cute :) (and so is that bathtime delicacy!)

Una said...

Cool! I make my own soap and bath fizzies. I literally just found a recipe for this "cupcake" yesterday and was wondering how folks would like it:)

Anonymous said...

You actually tasted it ?? LOL.... when I was a kid I always had bubbles in my bath and I pretended that it was ice cream and Ive eaten my fair share of foam, but I would never feel the need to taste any soap ! Good thing you only licked it and didnt take a bite....

Chris said...

This reminds me of when I was kid. My two sisters would always buy the best smelling lip balm. I could not resist taking a big ole bite. Some of them didn't tastes all that bad.

I just started reading your blog yesterday.You've got a great sense of humor and your talent definitely goes way beyond the screen.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

I would have totally tasted it. Thanks for the heads up. ;)

redelf said...

Oh man I need one of those. I have a hell of a time getting my youngest son Harri in the bath..he is 13yrs old and it is still a struggle that usually ends up with my briding him. BUT he might actually get in there willingly for something so cool.

Yang JunXian'S Blog said...

like you so much! I even translate the summary of your role in lost into Chinese, on my blog!

bless you!

Becky said...

How cute is that?

Julie said...

yumm! :)

Emily said...

That's so cute, and it looks yummy! I hate it when non-food things look tasty though, it's such a tease.

Christina B. said...

Your posts always make my day! Thank you! Great picture!! :)

Noodlegirl said...

Hahahhah I tried one of thsoe before its fun!

MadCarlotta said...

I may have to buy some of these for my 4 year old daughter. She loves the bath bombs from Lush, she'd probably squee herself to death over one shaped like a cupcake.

OurWanderingAdventures said...

hahahahahahahahah!! Thanks for the taste warning!

Christina Bauer said...

Yum! I bet you come out smelling really good! But don't stay in long enough to become a prune!

Deborah Godin said...

Oh my goodness - bath soap that smells (and tastes) like milk and cookies?! What's next, Mr. Clean-flavored toaster strudel?

Tammy said...

I LOVE the pic, you guys are the greatest! Thanks so much, enjoy the other goodies :)

Iberostar said...

They REALLY look like you could eat them - I'd be in the tub, then I'd get hungry. Let us know what it looks like after a few baths. Does the frosting wear down? Thanks for the link too!

Cindy Lou Who said...

Wow ~ Where in the world do you find those? I want some!!!

Gwen said...

Are you suggesting caution based on personal experience?
You totally tasted it didn't you!!

Jodi said...

Do they make Oreo soap? I'd so buy it.

Tasha Who? said...

That reminds me of the time my mom bought me some "Mint Sugar". While it was in a plain solo cup with a lid, mom forgot to tell me that it was a body scrub. I couldn't get rid of the taste of glycerin for about an hour.

AtomBlonde said...

Totally cool!

Christina said...

How fun!

Starla said...

ah the dangers of handmade soaps, they look good enough to eat. you think that looks good...check out THIS soap:


yeah, i could take a spoon to that!

Joey Polanski said...

Jus so ya know ...

Theres a soapless way to make bubbles in th baff.

I aint magick, but there is a trick to it.

Barb Stingl said...

I just LOVE your blog!!! You seem like such a sweetheart!

GaltsGulch said...

Soap should not look that delicious! Just looking at the picture I thought you were gonna blog about eating a cupcake in the bath, then I thought what a genious idea! Then you told me it was soap! Thanks, now I've got a mean hankering for a soap free cupcake =)

KC said...

dude, pleeeease listen to me for a minute. My husband and I are fans of the show...love it, love Hurley. But...he has a hard time with some of the really far out medical terms used in the script. It was especially apparent in this last episode with all the medical treatment of little Ben. We live on Kauai and he is a doctor and Medical Director of two hospitals here (he's the one who talked to you in Colenti's when you were here) and wants to know if the show needs a medical doctor consultant to help the script be more medically correct. Maybe you could put us into contact with the right person?

SignsByDiane said...


What a riot! I am a big LOST fan! Too cool!

Ritch in Love said...

I think it's hilarious that you actually tasted it! But I admit it does look tempting!

Tammy said...

I "think" the label said nonedible-you rebel :)
the Big question-how did you feel, after the bath???

Moe a.k.a. @biggirlblue said...

Thanks for the chuckle. Those types of things of are popular here too although I've never seen them shaped like food.

Susan Jacobson said...

Cool blog, Jorge!
Hope you enjoyed your cupcake.

Oblivion165 said...

As a daily reader of your blog for over a year now, I've come to the conclusion that you are most likely getting paid by someone for your product reviews. Seems like you are always mentioning something and giving it a passive review...hmm

Still like yah' though.

Unknown said...

I can't remember the last time I took a bath. I think I'm just always in a hurry when it's "cleaning time." I'm the queen of the 4 minute shower.
Also, I think if you are going to take a bath it should be in a crazy awesome clawfooter, certainly not my teensy tub.

Kate said...

this blog is so awesomely, wonderfully random and hilarious. please please keep it up.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! no, not the case.

Nancy said...

When I saw the pic, I must admit "soap" did not come to mind. Looked to me like it was snacktime!

Joseph Finchum said...

Jorge, I was. Just wondering if there was a chance that you could identofy the brand name of the coveralls used as the DHARMA Jumpsuits. A friend wants to be a dharma worker for halloween this year and can't find a jumpsuit that matches what you guys wear... Any help would be awesome.... Thanx dedjezter

Whit said...

My mom used to wash my mouth out with soap, but it didn't look like a cupcake- more like a white Suzy-Q.

Erika Jean said...

baths are the besT!

sewermaster82 said...

dude if you ever make it back over to England be sure to find the nearest 'Lush' shop, it's packed full of nice soaps all made with natural stuff. you'll love it if you're into your bath smelling like honey/pancakes/popcorn.

Miztification said...

Can't believe you tasted it, but thanks for the warning. lol

Melissa Showen said...

You are just so gosh darn cute.

Das Mutter said...

Enjoy! Those are always fun. My kids would definitely taste them...kinda like sugar scrub. "Can I eat that, Mommy?"

Natalie said...

my son says you're the best character on lost. but he's a little disappointed that they have bubble baths on the island. ha!

Unknown said...

this is a great picture....adn those soaps are pretty much awesome

Cat said...

Natalie said...my son says you're the best character on lost.

I agree with that. The Hurley character comes across as so much more real than the others do. And he has never been irritating like a few of the other characters can be.

Michelle McCrary said...

I tasted my oatmeal soap once. It literally tasted like vomit. Now my husband won't let me live it down. At least now I can say I'm not the only one who tasted their soap!

ValMo said...

Have you heard of Lush? It's handmade goodness straight outta Canada. They have "bath bombs" that are pretty magical with fun floating stuff. I like the chocolate Santa one
I admit to tasting some soap from Lush that has pieces of fruit and nuts in it.
I need to try one of those cupcake things now. I'm obsessed with bath products.

Auntie Depressant said...

I'm really surprised that your cute doggy, Nunu, didn't grab that & RUN! I know my dog would have!

Sugarplum's Mom said...

oh my daughter would love that!

gdahimself said...

It is a great face shot.

GasbarNut said...

please, by all means, keep on making me laugh. thank you!!

you're awesome funny!

I've done that taste the soap thing. That is not pleasant.

Crushproof said...

K, so I saw these at my store here in Chicago and picked up one. They taste pretty good actually, but they sure don't cook just like regular pancakes! Tend to be a little bit doughy too. I enjoyed making some swirly ones. Those were the best! Are you sure you are not missing a brother somewhere?

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.

time to take on a partner that could help me manage

the demand and opportunities for the ed
