Links: Deals, Shows and the 3DS

So, LivingSocial is trying to sneak in on the Groupon bandwagon and has their own daily sales deals thingy. I'd been avoiding it, because typically none of those sites never have anything I really want. Until today. LivingSocial is doing $20 Amazon gift cards for $10. That's pretty awesome. Check it out here if you're interested. If you buy one, you get the option to email it to people (if three people buy one, you can get yours for free which is also pretty cool.

I have a link to a round-up of ebook piracy posts from last week's craziness. One of the post quotes in this bit talks a bit about ownership, and how it's hard for artists to give up control, which piracy of content definitely infringes on, no matter how you justify it or not.

Matt shared a link to a Web series called "Awkward Embraces" and I watched all of Season 1 today. It's kind of cute and goofy and is about three girls and their awkward dating experiences. I think I probably only enjoyed it because the main character is a super nerdy girl, so extra awkwardness is in play there.

For the gaming fans, one of our GA writers @stealthyslyth was at the Nintendo NYC 3DS launch event today. She's got a few pictures up on the GA Facebook page if you're interested. She said she had fun, but that after she stopped playing, it made her head hurt. #1 reason for me not to have/play 3D games.

I was thinking about you yesterday. I was at my dermatologist yesterday about my exzema on my hands. She said its tyically from frequent washings, or touching something I am allergic to.

But aside from that, she told me about a cream to use which you might like...I don't know if they sell it in the states.

It's La Roche-Posay Lipikar Xerand. It's already taken the redness and soreness out and I only bought it yesterday. In Toronto they have them 2 for $14 right now. But I know from expirences La RP has an amazing exzema like of lotions and shower stuff that my dermatologist told me to use exclusively. So far so good!

Thanks. I think I've figured out the rash culprit - my hand soap. See I've been using the same soap for more than a year, but I bought a new bottle recently, and while it's the same scent and manufacturer, it's like a different texture or something - just slightly different than what I was using before. So, I stopped using it, and the rash seems to be clearing up. My hands are still dry, but that's natural for me this time of year.
