Justifiiiiied! I just caught up with the most recent episode. This show is.so.GOOD. Seriously, #1 show on TV right now (until Breaking Bad comes back...)
I have to say, I was a little taken out of the big hitman scene because I felt like the hitman should've just shot Boyd like he did with the other two guys. But it was still a super-tense scene. As I was fast-forwarding through commercials, after that scene, I just had to let out an "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH". So yeah, good stuff.

On Jane Marie, What's Actually in Your Makeup Bag Right Now?

@LeafySeaDragon Go to a department store makeup counter of your choice when it's not busy. Tell the person you would like to find a nice blush. They will give you a few good options. Don't feel pressured to buy it if its not your color. Repeat until you find one you like. Buy it and then either continue buying that brand or take it to a cheaper store and find the same color elsewhere. I like smash box chiffon, fwiw. Even my mom couldn't tell it was makeup, so that passed my "must look natural" test.

@VolcanoMouse Someone is probably going to yell at me for this. BUT-
I really think that if you don't want to put the effort into keeping a cat in your house, then you don't deserve a cat. So I think any "outdoor" (don't get me started on this) cat is up for grabs. They are at risk for so many problems outdoors, that you are practically rescuing this cat. It's yours.

I forgot. Free-range, organic eggs. I know this sounds ridiculous, but those eggs are fantastic. Bright orange yolks, actually taste like eggs. They spoiled me for regular eggs, which just taste watery and strange by comparison now. All of the organic, foo-foo stuff is more than conventionally farmed stuff at TJ's, but soo much cheaper than organic foo foo stuff even at regular grocery stores. Also, the little yogurts they sell are really good too.
