@franceschances Chester Brown wrote a very good graphic novel about his own experiences being a john called Paying For It - it certainly gave me a different perspective on the "kinds of people" ('cuz, you know, it's not all that uniform) who pay for sex.
@PixieSparkle I absolutely came here to discuss this monstrosity.
@akapocalypse TELL ME ABOUT IT. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/06/health/06annoy.html?_r=0 it's actually always the worst. I need music or television or any kind of white noise if I'm going to be around people eating.
@wearitcounts Agree, love this so much. Copied and pasted on my dashboard stickies.
@Steph Cartagena is also excellent!
@thisisunclear Seconding South America! I spent 2 weeks in Chile for a little under $2000 (including flights from Toronto) and LOVED it - did Santiago, Vina del Mar, Valparaiso, Quintero, and Pucon - you can cover a lot of ground really affordably with bus travel and hostelworld.com!
@rewil Sephora's It's Real 18k Gold Topcoat is still stupidly expensive even at 50% off but my god, it's the most beautiful glitter/flaky/GOLD in the world. Plus, you can quote Austin Powers in Goldmember even more than I assume you usually do. I LOVE GOOOOOLD.
@dinos The trick is that the tinfoil keeps the remover from evaporating, so it penetrates more effectively!
@bevrockin I swore by Seche Vite for a long time despite the entire manicure peeling off whole (tip: roommates and lovers do NOT think it's cute when you line up all your "homemade fake nails" on the table) and the SHRINKAGE (man, I hated the shrinkage) and the whole bottle getting so thick and gummy after so long, and I am here to tell you: Butter London P.D. Quick Topcoat!! It's not quite as fast or glassy-finished as Seche Vite, and it's stupidly expensive for a top coat, but it's beautiful and it lasts a long time and the manicures... the manicures last so very long with no chipping or peeling or shrinking!
@Jolie Kerr GLITTER! Also, here is the very, very best way to remove it, especially when there are big chunks: soak a cotton ball/pad in acetone remover, wad it onto your nail so it covers the whole thing/ everywhere there is glitter, then wrap the whole shebang in tinfoil! Wait a few minutes once all your nails are done then slide those babies off, dragging the remover-soaked pad firmly against your nail. Done!
