The weather is too short?
Amazon claims to sell SLS-free Tom's of Maine toothpaste. Maybe it's just not stocked as much anymore?
...or maybe someone is selling ten-year-old tubes of toothpaste. Hm.
Tights! They're your friends!
I used to wear microfiber tights in winter. They're decently warm.
Exporting Exchange mailboxes at 1:30AM is a blast.
I'm wearing tights right now.
Okay, they're really thermal underwear and I only put them on because I'm going hiking in the woods with my dad in a bit, but they're tight fitting and look silly on men, so they count as tights.
We're not talking about days, we're talking maybe a few hours at most. This woman runs the washing machine 2-3 times every single day.
You know what tastes good at five in the morning? Fruit preserves. Mmm.
I could really go for some guac tacs.
Awesome: the Price Chopper near my house sells cooked turkey breasts alongside the rotisserie chickens now. I can make turkey soup!
Less awesome: this requires me to go to Price Chopper.
I actually make it out of smoked turkey necks/wings/other lame parts from the Asian market. Depends on how patient you are with picking meat off the bones, though. :)
I wish I didn't hate shitty music, it would make listening to internet radio streams so much more fun.
“Lord, what fools these mortals be,”
I wish everyone would just use the same usernames on every website, so I could always know who people are...
This is probably a bad idea, actually. I've been using this name since elementary school. Accordingly, you can find my digital trail extending all the way back. I've likely said a fair amount of really stupid things over the years.
Hahahahahahahhooooooooooooooow about no. >.<;;
*now is thinking about all the embarrassing things done over the years all at once, great*
Relatedly, if anybody's looking to stalk me, you now have all the information you need.
Fuckin' eyeliner is hard.
If it's liquid, you need new eyeliner. If it's pencil, agreed. I usually give up and doodle with it. :)
Got bored Googling you to post something embarrassing you've said. We are a 76% match on OkCupid, however.
That begs the question: What's the 24% you'd fucking hate about eachother?
Penises are usually a bummer for me. I hate 'em.
Yes. Yes it is.
Also: fake eyelashes. I refuse to glue things to my eyelids.
Really? I have shaky hands so I find liquid to be a little bit tougher than pencil (liquid shows up better though, so I still try).
I have a harder time with liquid too. I just don't like how OMGDARK it turns out. I prefer pencil (and using a lighter or match to make it go on a bit easier). I really need to get a sharpener though.
I wish to register a complaint.
You want to complain? Look at this eyeliner. I've only had it for three hours and the tip is worn right through.
I'm building a new database system. As we're borrowing a corner of an existing system: WIDR (Wholesale something or other) it seemed only sensible, being in Commercial to call our system, much to the annoyance of the project manager, CIDR.
The application is currently called SCRMPE (scrumpy) which led to accusations that we weren't taking things seriously. It does actually stand for something but I forget what.
The test box is now called Strongbow because it looks a bit like cid[e]r but is a pretty poor immitation. That was when we made the PM all shouty and cross so naturally the name stuck.
'twas a pencil liner. I took a deep breath, concentrated hard, and managed to get it within a half inch of my eye. Now I don't know if smudged eyeliner that's caused the huge bags under my eyes, or the huge bags under my eyes are turning up more because the rest of my face is even. Still, drawing on my face was a fun hour and a half.
Despite looking slightly clown-like I don't think I did too bad for my first go. I straightened my hair for the second time and I have to say I have pretty fucking great hair.
I have no better luck with makeup, to the point where I wear anything more than lip gloss, mascara, and concealer maybe four times a year. But awesome hair is *awesome.* :D
I'm so jealous, I straighten mine but it goes wavy again in a couple of hours... But I don't like putting much hairspray in it to make it stay, so I guess it's my fault!
Mine went wavy pretty quickly too last time I straightened it. I did have it tied up and it got wet as well so that's to be expected. I meant it's great hair in that when straightened it's thick and glossy and all that. If I didn't straighten it it'd be a frizz explosion. Less so than the makeup I want to transition soooooon so I can play with my hair. :P
SpeakWithCred: I know my makeup job isn't great, but I think half the problem for me is just not being used to or comfortable seeing myself in makeup. With all that being said I'm guessing you look great and part of it could be not being used to seeing yourself with it on?
<awkward blushing mutter>
Mostly, I never really learned how to use most makeup properly, and up until the last year or so I had pretty persistent acne which made anything else on my skin look like clown paint. Plus, the one friend who was teaching me how to do makeup properly passed away almost two years ago, so I've yet to get back into it after that.
I also have no idea how to use a hair straightener, but I consider that a blessing. F*** yeah, Swedish hair.
Today my partner and I observed that the Polo Ralph Lauren store at a local mall was having a "shirting event" that was 30 percent off. I have no idea what possessed them to verbify "shirt," but if "shirting" is analogous to "pantsing," I will not pay for that, 30 percent off or no.
I think there was a thread on QT3 about shirting. It's what happens when you have a long shirt on and go to the bathroom and forget to pull the shirt up above your waist when you sit down.
Well, then, that seems like a really inappropriate thing for a nice store like Polo Ralph Lauren to be involved in, much less charging up to 70 percent of full price for.
I think "shirting" is just a word used to refer to the category, more noun than verb. Like a suiting event, and you'll see references to Brand X shirting, although I doubt you'll ever see a pantsing event.
Sorry, Ely, I can only be your friend 45% of the time.
92/40/8. Interesting. :)
