Friday Bargain Bin: Super Bowl Weekend


Nike Touchdown Tees, $29 (were $45)
My team is all sold out. JUST KIDDING, I DO NOT HAVE A FOOTBALL TEAM. WHAT!? Also, this is not going to be Super Bowl-themed. That was almost a total lie, except for the fact that this is posting on the last weekday before the Super Bowl, and I found this one football-related item which doesn't really count seeing as how the final teams' shirts aren't even available.


Nation LTD Eugene Cardigan, $39 (was $130)
Euge. The Eugigan. Cardigene. Leave this in your tote in case you accidentally leave the house in that t-shirt, Edith.


Ceramic Fox Speaker, $24.99 (was $49)
What is this, how does it work, and when is mine arriving?


Set of Three Winter Home Candles, $24.49 (was $49)
I cannot even count the number of agonizing seconds I just spent checking the price on this and the fox speaker to be sure I wasn't mixing them up. Anyways! These are the best candles because they make crackly noises like a real fire.


Lattice Fishnet Tights, $6.99 (were $15)
If full-on fishnets are too hot, and those fake ones that are just opaque tights with lines drawn on them are too cold, these will be juuust right.


Rock Tumbling Kit, $29.99 (was $54.95)
"In just a few weeks, you can make what it takes rivers and oceans thousands of years to create—smooth, polished stones that can be transformed into jewelry. This kit contains all you need to get started: a powerful tumbling cylinder, semiprecious rough stones, polishing powder, and findings to make a key chain, necklace, ring, or earrings." !!!


Spotted Sea Heels, $80 (were $340)
Holy moly, what a sale. While you're at BHLDN, scoop these...


Set of Six Monogrammed Cards, $4 (were $20)
Opal, Quintana, Ursula, Xochitl, and Yolanda — you are in luck this week!


Noir Jewelry 18-Karat-Gold-Plated Enameled Earrings, $35 (were $72)
Perfect for summer.


NIP & FAB Limited Edition 10 Years Younger in a Box, $23,68 (was $34.99)
Wow, could the name of this company BE any more British? A lot of you have been asking for some weak-ass, non-Retin-A-containing, "anti-aging" snake oil to waste your money on, so here you go!


Two Nights at Castlemartyr Resort in Ireland, $210 (was $404)
Go. GO! Why are you still here? SCRAM!

Of course there's nothing left for the Packers. OF COURSE.

:pout:

hungrybee

@JanieS Because we scoop it at full price because we are such good fans!

bocadelperro

@JanieS So I just found this one, which I think is actually cuter than the nike one, and is cheaper (in most sizes): http://tinyurl.com/bksdteo

Actually amazon has a lot of surprisingly cute, reasonably priced NFL wear for ladies.

JanieS

@bocadelperro You are a beautiful, delightful human being.

bocadelperro

@JanieS oh, you. Also, the Targets around here (SF bay area) usually have pretty cute ladies local team sportswear at the beginning of the seasons. So, if you're local to Green Bay, you might check there in September.

Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

@bocadelperro Also occasionally Old Navy, and this site has a mix of not-great to pretty cool ladies' stuff: http://www.ladyfanatics.com/NFL

Mind you, I've only looked at their merch for my team which I won't name because they continue to break my heart and this is why we're in an open relationship.

bocadelperro

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Oh yeah, Old Navy sometimes has stuff, usually at the beginning of the season.

There's also this victioria's scret line of NFL stuff: http://www.victoriassecret.com/pink/nfl-shop-by-team
But I somehow feel like it's made for people who don't really like football? That may just be my bias against vicky's, though.

Oliver St. John Mollusc

Nike is turning out some pretty respectable, non-spangly ladies' sports gear these days! Would totally snag one of those Ts if they had the Cowboys.

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

@Oliver St. John Mollusc I'm not totally immersed in football culture, but I'm pretty sure there's a rule that one is not supposed to cheer for the Cowboys.
(Yes, I'm attempting to politely incite a my-team-is-better fight. For example, my team is better because it is in the Superbowl and the quarterback has a 110-pound pet turtle.)

Oliver St. John Mollusc

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose If your team is in the Superbowl, no way am I going to argue that those bums I root for are better :) HOWEVER, I'm from the Dallas area (and more importantly, I'm the daughter of a diehard Cowboys fan) so there was never really an option to root for anyone else.

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

@Oliver St. John Mollusc OK you, too, are being polite about this. I will acquiesce that the Cowboys culture is pretty fun, and that I have attended a game of theirs, one of the last in the old stadium. Also, I visit Texas every year, usually Dallas or Houston, and have a lovely time. (This fight isn't going as planned....)

Oliver St. John Mollusc

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose Hee! It's funny, I love watching football but I don't get that worked up about MY TEAM RAH RAH RAH. I would love to see my Cowboys stop shitting the bed, sure, but most of the time I just want a good game.

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

@Oliver St. John Mollusc My favorite part of Cowboys games are the shots of Jerry Jones having subtle, mental breakdowns.

Oliver St. John Mollusc

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose You just reminded me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zce-QT7MGSE Just gonna leave that there in case anyone hasn't seen it yet.

katiemcgillicuddy

Forget "favorite part of Cowboys games" thats my favorite part of life half the time. You can literally see it happening in real time, it's wonderful.

lisma

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose I thought Niners fans and Cowboys fans were supposed to HATE each other. COME ON LADIES! I WANNA SEE SOME BLOOD.

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

@lisma That was my version of getting mean about professional sports. I'm only a 49ers fan this year because I picked them at the beginning of the season; last year it was the Dolphins. I typically read during football games, if I'm not using the game as an excuse to get day drunk on a Sunday.

lisma

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose no excuses! FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT.

FulanaDeTallcan

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose - But NOOOO ONE is as good as the Raiders!!!

.....

I am Oakland born and raised and not less than 6 of the men in my familia have Raiders tats (3 on the neck!) but I can't even convince myself. "What separates the worst team in the NFL from the best team in the NFL? The Bay Bridge." Hahahahahahawistfulsigh.

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

@FulanaDeTallcan I was JUST having a conversation with my sister about Raiders fans, because I think they have to be born, not made. We also talked about how fans separate themselves in bars in the Northwest, with the Seahawk fans all blonde and espresso-y, the 49ers fans all in red and gold and likely drunk, and then the Raiders fans in the corner table with death in their eyes for everyone who isn't cheering for their team.
(You can tell we pay A LOT of attention to the actual football game.)

bocadelperro

@lisma I grew up in SF, in a family of pretty active niners fans. When I moved to AZ in high school, I was shocked that people outside of the Dallas area actually liked the Cowboys. Personally, I don't feel a rivalry with anyone except Seattle.

I now live in the Bay Area again, and I have a neighbor who is one of ...those... raiders fans (I saw him in his makeup once). He seems like a nice enough guy, but he still makes me kind of nervous.

lisma

@bocadelperro ahahaha at "one of ...those... raiders fans."

raised amongst catalogs

Before I died from looking at that last bargain, I was going to comment that I saw those shoes at BHLDN while scouring their sale section yesterday but can't have them because I basically can only walk in moccasins.

But I'm dead, so.

parallel-lines

I just got on the retin-A bandwagon, how long until I see results?

raised amongst catalogs

@parallel-lines A few months! Hang in there!

mysterygirl

@parallel-lines : Six and a half years in and I'm still waiting! :)

noodge

@raised amongst catalogs waiwaiwait.... you actually DO see results from stuff like retin a? like, wrinkle smoothing results? I thought it was a load of wishful thinking and placebo effect (for no real reason). Tell me this is true!

raised amongst catalogs

@noodge It really does work on fine lines but not deep wrinkles. You can also see an improvement in overall tone and texture. If you want to really go all out, use the retinoid at night and use a vitamin C serum in the mornings (even every other day is fine on the serum).

mysterygirl

@raised amongst catalogs : I don't dispute your experience, and I have definitely heard that Retin-A is the only proven anti-aging treatment, but I personally have used a vitamin C serum three mornings a week for a number of years plus prescription Vitamin A (generic retin-A) at night for the aforementioned 6.5 years, from age 27 to almost 34 now, and I really have not noticed an improvement in my fine lines or my few small, minor brown spots. My lines are definitely expression lines, so maybe there's just not much to be done as long as my facial muscles keep moving. I comfort myself by thinking that maybe it *is* working and I'd just look really, really old by now without it. :)

raised amongst catalogs

@mysterygirl Brown spots are basically the worst, because they only seem to respond to topical hydroquinone (ick) or the pricier treatments like IPL, photofacial thingies or a deep TCA peel.

Kristen

When I was little I was OBSESSED with getting a rock tumbler for Christmas and my parents would never get me one. And when I asked why not, they just said 'Because, it's STUPID to spend all that money just to get some SHINY ROCKS. Here's another book." I was SO SAD. And now I am a grown up with my own money and I could buy this rock tumbler for myself, but I don't want to, because they're just stupid shiny rocks and I'd rather have a book.

Dumb.

Daisy Razor

@Kristen That is me, except I STILL want a rock tumbler. So I am putting it into my 3-year-old's head that SHE wants one, which will finally give me an excuse to buy one! Ha. Parenthood has its perks.

Amphora

@Kristen Jane, you can have the rock tumbler I got for my 11th birthday for free as soon as I can dig it out of my parents' basement. It only left the box once, was determined to be "way too loud and annoying," and immediately put in storage (for the next generation?).

Ophelia

@Kristen Also, they're kind of noisy, so unless you have a basement to put it in, having it around in an apt is probably not awesome.

smidge

@Kristen Get one of those mini looms you can make bracelets on!

lora.bee

@Kristen Sometimes you also forget that the rocks & the mix are in there, and then many years later cleaning out your mother's basement you find a solid case of cement...

And then an extremely over the top "I told you so" look from your mother.

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

FOX SPEAKERS! BE MINE! Also, this might be the first time I'm tempted to purchase tights like that! So many exclamation points!

area@twitter

Football news: Exciting times here in Bawlmer. My office is gathering for a picture later today so we can get a shot of everybody's Purple Friday gear. (Go, purple scarf and sweater!) Also my coworker brought in doughnuts glazed in the Ravens colors. They were still warm. OM NOM NOM NOM
LITTLE FOXY EEEEE. So CUTE.
And rock tumbler! I wasn't into rock tumbling as a kid, but now I kind of want to get myself something similarly kid-themed and awesome. Like something I wanted as a kid but never got to try? I'm not sure what though. Suggestions?

smidge

@area@twitter One of those little mini looms you can make bracelets and placemats on?

frenz.lo

@area@twitter I feel bad for my one football hating friend who lives in Fells Point. Other than that, I am ready for insanity this weekend. I do think we all need to put pots and pans on our heads to guard against falling bullets, though. Also, I don't really care about football other than vague positive feelings for the Ravens, but I do love purple! I love to big hyper-masculine dudes just wearing their purple so sincerely!

sophia_h

@area@twitter Meanwhile, San Francisco is battening down in hopes of preventing the Mission from being set on fire, as happened after the World Series. I'm excited, but mostly because I'm a baseball fan and I feel like two championship wins in one year will in some roundabout way bring my Giants even more glory, since no one takes west coast sports seriously. Also, Jim Harbaugh drove the first baseman's car in the victory parade, and said first baseman promised to do the same for Jim if the Niners won. Since he's actually a Cowboys fan, I'm dying to see this.

smidge

@smidge oops replied to the wrong comment sorry!

honey cowl

@sophia_h "No one takes West Coast sports seriously"? Did I miss this boat? I mean the 49ers are making me sick after the shit they pulled this week & they are not the Seahawks (cry) but I still want them to win? If we can't go back in time to beat the Falcons THAT IS.

SuperGogo

@area@twitter Ant farm?

muggles

@area@twitter yesssss you spelled the city name correctly (har har)! I always slightly side-eye when a movie/TV show has the character go "Why yes, I am a Ball-tee-more native"

sophia_h

@honey cowl Well, at least no one cares about west coast baseball! But I'm learning football is a little different. I guess having all the games televised nationally really makes a difference.

honey cowl

@sophia_h Truth. I could not give a shit about the Mariners (orrrr any other baseball team in the country).

gobblegirl

@sophia_h West Coast basketball is also quite well-known in certain circles.

RK Fire

@area@twitter ca-CAW!!!

My only regret for this week is that I do not have enough purple clothes to wear every day this week. Also, for once Saturday is just a meaningless filler until Sunday.

RAVENS!!

Diana

@honey cowl

Nobody gives a shit about West Coast baseball, especially when it happens to be beating East Coast baseball. The lack of enthusiasm on ESPN's part was so palpable I'm surprised they didn't preempt the World Series this year to show more reruns of Big Bang Theory. It's the worst. :( I DEMAND RESPECT. - hardcore lifelong Giants fan

sophia_h

@Diana *rousing round of JOE BUCK SUCKS*

Though less this year than 2010! I think they even knew a couple of players' names! But nobody cared about a Giants-Tigers series outside of CA and MI, even people who are paid to care. Which, whatever, we will small-ball our way to victory after victory!

OhMarie

@RK Fire I am away for the weekend (my friends are skiing but I twisted my ankle and am not skiing) and brought all 5 of the purple nail polishes I have and am basically going to be doing all kinds of ridiculous purple nail art all day. RAVENS!

Blushingflwr

We could have Puppy Bowl themed merchandise. That would be okay.

In other news -those shoes! Fortunately for my bank account my size is sold out.

coolallison

@Blushingflwr I was secretly glad they were sold out of my size.

yeah-elle

Ahh, I have a "Y" name! So tempted...and those earrings! But nooo I cannot spend money, I am going out for breakfast twice this weekend. I am spending my money on omelettes.

iceberg

@yeah-elle I like the cut of your jib. Priorities, you're doing them right.

SarcasticFringehead

The earrings are mine! Plus two more pairs of earrings. But it's justified because on Sunday I'm going to go get my hair cut like this, and I always get new earrings when I get a new haircut.

yeah-elle

@SarcasticFringehead Ahh that haircut is beautiful! Plus nothing feels better than getting the sides cropped so short. Except for maybe getting the back shaved.

highfivesforall

@SarcasticFringehead Oh man I want that haircut so bad, but I am a total chicken. I am actually considering getting a bob soon that is much shorter in the back than the front. Baby steps, right?

Jane Marie

@SarcasticFringehead perfect haircut.

hallelujah

@yeah-elle I miss my shorn sides so badly! Nothing like feeling the breeze on your scalp while it simultaneously tumbles the rest of your hair sexily (in my mind). That haircut is splendid.

allofthewine

@SarcasticFringehead oh man, I got a haircut like that (post-breakup, because I am a statistic) and I never felt cooler or sassier. totally totally approve.

I also couldn't handle the shaved sides because I am a wuss. Also it's winter and cold all the time.

iceberg

@SarcasticFringehead Perfect haircut for your username! I admire your chutzpah, I don't think I could carry off that look but I am envious of those who can!

totallyunoriginal

@iceberg I totally agree! I would love to do something like that but I don't see that look working so well with super curly hair.

yeah-elle

@totallyunoriginal I've seen it look really cute with curly hair! The bangs are all tumbled and pretty, and the rest of the hair is mostly too short for texture to be an issue. For what it's worth, I have ridiculously thick and voluminous wavy hair and a version of this haircut works pretty well on me, albeit with shorter bangs.

Blushingflwr

@totallyunoriginal Yeah, my curls would not mesh well with that style.

SarcasticFringehead

@highfivesforall I've been doing shortish back and sides for a while, kind of working up to it. I was actually going to do it last time I got my hair cut, but I chickened out. This time I've actually told a bunch of people and also the internet about it, so peer pressure is going to make me do it.

@totallyunoriginal I think it would look amazing with curly hair (like this one). But I also push short hair like I'm making money off it. So.

hallelujah

@totallyunoriginal like everyone else said, it's the BEST on curly hair! Mine is just short of curly (wavy I suppose) & I looked hot to trot.

totallyunoriginal

@SarcasticFringehead Okay so that cut with curly hair is super cute. I was totally wrong. I think I just needed to see a visual. I wonder if I could get mine to chillax a bit to look more loose and bouncy. I love short hair as well. I cut mine off last year and have been keeping it between Halle Barry short and Meg Ryan circa City of Angels short.

Blushingflwr

@SarcasticFringehead But doesn't something like that require daily styling/maintence? My mother is always trying to get me to cut my hair short and then I point out that she spends more time/energy/money on her short hair than I do on my long hair.

SarcasticFringehead

@Blushingflwr YMMV, obviously, but my hair is so fine and limp that the longer it gets, the more I have to work on it. It's on the long side of pixie right now, and my styling routine is to get out of the shower, rub it with a towel, finger-comb so it's going more or less the right direction, and work in a little styling wax, and go.

yeah-elle

@Blushingflwr Your mileage may vary. For me, short hair means 10 minutes in the shower, after which I rub it mostly dry with a towel, take two minutes with a blow dryer and then finger comb it with some leave in conditioner or pomade, and I look completely put together.

With long hair...it was a nightmare. It took hours to dry after washing, and it would take even longer to style it. I would straighten it to flatten it, because it was so voluminous, even after being thinned out aggressively. I basically never wore it down, and just threw it up into a bun every day. Making it look nice took hours.

With short hair, you do have to get it cut more often to maintain styles, but I used to get it cut at a local cheap place ($8!) that was great, and once I moved I started getting it cut at an old-fashioned barbershop ($25 with a straight-razor shave on the back of the neck which is heavenly). The only time I spent a lot of money ($60 maybe) on a haircut is when I made the initial big chop.

Edit: Oops, I basically just wrote the long-winded version of @SarcasticFringehead's comment. But I think it's worth mentioning that while she says her hair is "fine and limp," mine is crazy thick and has a mind of its own...and we still have an easier time with short hair, haha.

totallyunoriginal

@yeah-elle Yeah, I agree that it's easier with short hair. When mine was long, it would take all day to dry. If I used a hair dryer it would still take 2 solid hours. And at that point, I'm hot, sweaty, and grumpy. Short hair means that I can't just throw it up in a ponytail and go out the door but at least getting ready doesn't take terribly long anymore.

Blushingflwr

@yeah-elle See, I don't like showering in the morning (for many reasons, including that I like to sleep and also that I don't like to put on clothes for a few hours after I've showered, unless they're really soft, like PJs), so I want something I can sleep on. Also, I don't own a blowdryer. My hair is long and thick and does take hours to dry, but washing it in the late morning and letting it air-dry is how I get the most compliments on it.

highfivesforall

Are foxes the new owls? Discuss.

lisma

@highfivesforall one hundred percent the new owls.

sophia_h

@highfivesforall Put a fox on it?

fondue with cheddar

@highfivesforall Unfortunately I can't find the original that shows a picture of the photographer taking the shot, but THIIIIIIS.

Amphora

@fondue with cheddar WHISKERS!!!

Beatrix Kiddo

@highfivesforall I hope not, because I want to be the only fox fan!
Also, where does the octopus fit into this?

miss olsen

@highfivesforall For sure. What do we think the new foxes will be? Deer, maybe? [unless deer are already cool? aaah, I can't keep up]

Ophelia

@fondue with cheddar Want.

am wild animal

@highfivesforall I think perhaps foxes have always been owls. Either way, I'm happy about it.

fondue with cheddar

@Amphora RIGHT?

@miss olsen I think deer were the thing a couple years ago, weren't they? I don't know, I love them all.

am wild animal

@Beatrix Kiddo Owls in the air, foxes on land, octopuses in the water? An animal for every occasion!

highfivesforall

@fondue with cheddar I also saw that picture, so I just tried to google it, and the first result was this:

fondue with cheddar

OMG I FOUND THE OTHER FOX PICTURE LOOOOOK

fondue with cheddar

@highfivesforall THIS IS KILLING ME

SarcasticFringehead

@Beatrix Kiddo And hedgehogs? Are foxes the new octopi are the new hedgehogs are the new otters?

Ophelia

@highfivesforall I like how he's clearly saying, "Cut! Re-do that scene, but with a little more emotion."

ColdFinger

@highfivesforall I have a friend doing a really great series of fox drawings. You should all buy them! They're here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/114791792/foxs-day-a-simple-life-book?ref=sr_gallery_7&ga_search_query=dasha+tolstikova&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all.

KatieBarTheDoor

@fondue with cheddar Ahh, I love the look on the photographer's face. So purely thrilled! (And understandably so.)

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

@fondue with cheddar I keep imagining this fox saying, "HALLO?"

fondue with cheddar

@KatieBarTheDoor I know! It's adorable all the way around. :)

smidge

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose "Hallo! Find love!"

Faintly Macabre

@fondue with cheddar AAHHHHHHHHH I am so jealous of that guy. I love foxes, but like @Beatrix Kiddo, I don't want them to be the trendy new thing! (I also saw one wandering around my neighbors' yards back home while I was walking my dog a few months ago, and I was so excited and no one I told cared. Sigh.)

Bittersweet

@fondue with cheddar Asdf;ka;slkdjgfal;skjdga;sldjfas;lkjasdv...

fondue with cheddar

@Faintly Macabre WE CARE WE CARE! It's fucking awesome that you saw a fox in your neighbor's yard. FUCKING AWESOME. :D

Faintly Macabre

@fondue with cheddar haha, IT TOTALLY WAS. And my old "vicious" pittie had no idea that there was a wild smelly creature right in front of him.

parallel-lines

All of the dresses I wanted for my wedding last year are now on super duper sale on BHLDN goddammit!!!!

Apocalypstick

@parallel-lines Having got completely distracted by that site: all the hairpieces are beautiful, but why the ever loving fuck would they name underwear "blancmange"? That is the last thing I would want to associate with my butt.

Amphora

@parallel-lines Oooh I love this one but isn't it sketch to buy your wedding dress online? That's a pretty major purchase.

parallel-lines

@Amphora I think they do returns if you don't like it. I personally didn't go that route but I might have if I had a more casual dress.

Brunhilde

Whyyyyyyy don't they have those shoes in my size?!?

Daisy Razor

Damnit, Jane, I've been craving another trip to Ireland! You're making it even harder to resist!

backstagebethy

Ahhhhhh I am gonna be in Cork in March and I've been trying to figure out where to spend my last four days and wouldn't a castle just be perfect for two of them?!

backstagebethy

@backstagebethy OK fine it's not a CASTLE castle but it has castle in the name and it's a resort!

Daisy Razor

@backstagebethy Ooh, be sure to go to the English Market in Cork. So much delicious food!

backstagebethy

@backstagebethy There's also a deal in Belfast, where I wanted to go see Van Morrison while I'm there. I'm dying.

Ophelia

@backstagebethy Belfast is also a pretty fun city! Recommended!
Although I was 19 and drunk at the time, so YMMV.

backstagebethy

@Ophelia I plan on being drunk a lot! Just not during the Van Morrison show, then I plan to be sobbing joyfully, quietly.

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

@backstagebethy I hung out in Cork for a couple days with the people of L'Arche, a place for adults with developmental disabilities. We went to church and this woman kept calling me a sweet little angel of God in her delightful Irish accent. I love it there.

daisicles

@Ophelia Belfast is the best even when you're sober. I love that city so much.

maevemealone

@backstagebethy I'm eyeballing this as well, but for a real castle, check out Ashford in Mayo. The rates are pretty good and I'm seriously debating it as well since I'll be out in those parts anyways. Also, plus: falconry.

rayray

I've been dying to get away for the weekend, but will probably just go to Cork proper or Kilkenny as neither me nor bf can drive us to the fancy resort.
But whoever goes should definitely check out Cobh! It's really lovely and very interesting! And Cork gaol.

backstagebethy

@rayray ooh, I will do those things!

ColdFinger

I BOUGHT TWO FOX SPEAKERS

ColdFinger

@ColdFinger TWO OF THEM!!!

honey cowl

@ColdFinger I can't believe it, but I just bought one of them. Maybe because yesterday was payday??? I'm so confused! What just happened?!

ColdFinger

@honey cowl I had to buy one for my friend who draws foxes (see above), and then I was like, immagetone for myself!

Amphora

Sorry, I already spent my allowance on a nice single malt scotch. Because the windchill here is -12.

SarcasticFringehead

@Amphora Your priorities are 100% in order.

This is a weird question, but can anyone see this comment? When I am logged in, my comments appear. But when I log out, they disappear.

honey cowl

@Vicky I SEE YOU

Vicky

@honey cowl Thank you for confirming I am real. Must be something weird on my end! I had linked to a recipe, maybe it got caught in a spam filter.

Probs

Ha, I stepped away from my phone while reading this, and when I came back the Nip Fab whatever thing was up, and I thought I had been reading another blog I read, the Worst Things For Sale. Then I saw it was Friday Bargain Bin, and was like "what in the hell...?" And then I read Jane's description and all was well.

frigwiggin

My mom's birthday is on Sunday and I want to get her a gift certificate to a nice restaurant. Which is better/worse: a local restaurant or someplace she and my stepdad have been to already and like, or a place that's a little further away (Seattle) and that they haven't been before?

piekin

@frigwiggin New restaurant, as long as your mom isn't one of those people that's afraid to try new things or drive into cities.

thebestjasmine

@frigwiggin New place, definitely!

piekin

FYI: 20% off asos.com this weekend with the code SUPERBOWL20.

chrysopoeia

@piekin NO WHY DID YOU DO THAT TO ME

I already bought those earrings, my poor credit card...

camanda

Super Bowl weekend is great. Because it means pitchers and catchers report in like two weeks. Aw yeah.

Sometimes I look at earrings and I think, "I should get my ears pierced again." Then the feeling passes. But I wonder. I had mine done when I was 8 and unfortunately that is how I learned I am allergic to certain metals, so I let them close up, and I still have quite a bit of scar tissue on the back of each lobe, so I don't even know if I can do them again. Anyone ever have theirs re-done?

daisicles

@camanda I've gotten mine repierced a couple times. (My secret superpower is speed-healing earlobes, apparently.) The most recent time, I went to a proper piercing joint because I was also worried about scar tissue. The piercer checked them before he did anything and assured me it would be okay - maybe you could go check out a few places and see what they say about your ears?

thebestjasmine

SUPER BOWL SUPER BOWL SUPER BOWL. I am going shopping today for food (avocados, wings, alcohol, pigs in blanket fixings, etc.) and am so anxious I might just be drunk from now until the end of the game. GO 49ERS!!

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

@thebestjasmine Seems like a solid reason to be drunk for three days. I condone this behavior (as long as you don't drive) (or call ex-lovers, unless that's a good idea for you, personally).
