@bitzyboozer I have been biased against expensive lipstick ever since I got a free sample of some higher-end stuff at Sephora and it was the exact color of my actual lips. Like it could have been invisible. The no-makup makeup look? I was sort of flattered my actual lip color is apparently nice enough to make into a lipstick but also felt weirdly ripped off by a free sample. I got all excited for nice lipstick that you can't even tell I'm wearing!
@Katie M. Cheap sunglasses are truly one of the only reasons I've considered contacts.
@moldy goldie But dogs are colorblind! They can't match colors either!
(the only opinion my dog has on his collar is "you're putting my collar on! I AM GOING OUTSIDE YAY!!")
Oh man, I like plants in theory but I am terrible with them. I may have a brown thumb. The best I can do is water other people's plants when they go out of town, and even then I need specific instructions. (But I am really good with cats and dogs? But they tell when they need stuff! Like, I feed my cat breakfast and dinner right on schedule and there are many times in-between where he makes sure I know his fat ass is TOTALLY STARVING.)
In college (when I could not have any pets in the dorm) I had a venus flytrap who lived for about two years. His (her? Idk with plants) name was Audrey. My roommate and I sang "Feed Me Seymour" to Audrey when we got bored, because we were cool like that.
@AllisonWonderland At least when the Stones first started, they also had the androgyny thing going (with hair even longer than the Beatles').
On How We Eat
@Onymous Yeah, exactly. Eggs benedict seems plenty creative to me. I think the only non-creativity in American breakfasts stems from how many of us skip it.
Hey, I also dictated Rainbow Brite fan fiction to my babysitter! I couldn't remember Murky and Lurky's names, so I just called them "the bad guy" and "the other one."
My babysitter was a great editor. She pointed out when I had called both bad guys "the other one." She also didn't say anything like "My Little Ponies are a totally different show!" when I decided they needed to show up. (To younger me, the only thing keeping Starlite from being a pony was that he was too tall and the star was on his forehead, not his butt.)
It is the same life.
Exactly! You're still you, your past is still there, you're just in a different place (and cut off from the social circle you did have*). It's hard to get better just by running away from your problems.
*I am sure among everyone you've ever known are people who do care about you and like you even with your current problems (they have problems too!). They'd miss you.
@CaitlinRenee LOL. "Don't take it personally even though that's what I'm doing!"
