I love typewriters and trains, rainy days and red meat, bourbon and biographies, folk music and fonts, cats and cardigans, solitude and silliness.
In the wake of a certain recent news story, I often could be heard opining that burning a book is the most un-American act possible. Although that book-burning reference is a non sequitur, I'm nonetheless amused by the notion that Yvette Mimieux up there is some sort of treasonous, anti-democracy scourge on civil rights.
Meanwhile, Rick Santorum looks at this panel and thinks he might have judged college educations too harshly...
@gladfanny I do this, too, a bit. I'd blame Zooey Deschanel, but she's already had to take the fall for my emergency 11 p.m. bathroom bang-cutting extravaganza...
@thebestjasmine, @Mingus_Thurber, @cherrispryte Thank you, 'Pinners! (For the advice and a reason to go to Nordstrom!)
Eyeliner question! I watched a tutorial on fresh-faced natural makeup and the beautiful lady recommended lining your upper waterline. (I think our own beautiful lady, Jane, may have also recommended this?) I tried it and it looked fabulous, but after a blink or two, the liner had rubbed off a bit onto my lower waterlines...and by midday, it had all disappeared. I used Lancome's Le Crayon Khol pencil. Would a gel or liquid be better? Please tell me there's a secret to lining one's upper waterline so I can continue rocking this look!
Yikes, I may be be No. 1! I have intermittent tinnitus and brown noise is the only thing that drowns it out. I use the Ambiance Classic app, because I like to pretend there's a thunderstorm when it's sunny outside but I'm feeling morose and British.
Can I order my Chinese takeout now? I already have my Snuggie and my box of wine! This movie will be monumentally awful and I cannot wait.
So much to love about this map. The piggies! The way the Mississippi River runs directly down the middle of the country! The fact that, according to it, I hail from Puke!
I didn't realize how many Things I had until reading this post! But my most defining Thing is that I'm a clock-watcher. Like right now, it's 6:31. I can't do anything (pay my phone bill, take a bath, go make that sandwich I'm craving - anything) at 6:31. That number doesn't make any sense. I could have at 6:30, though, because 6:30 is a nice number. You might think I have to wait until 6:35, but you're wrong. I can do something at 6:32 because 6=3*2. Does that make any sense?
Please don't let me be so late to this awesome party that no one will see this and tell me they do the same thing!
@kayjay Wait, that's a nose whistle?! The first time I heard it, I thought Garrison had lost a tooth. And then every week after, I'd think, "Does NPR need me to send back my special anniversary mug so dude can go see a dentist?" His monologues are now inbued with an extra degree of tension, waiting...for him...to...whistle again.
