@frigwiggin Ooh I do!! I do! What colors and lengths are they?
@craygirl @ru_ri Sweet merciful crap! YOU GUYS ARE MY HEROES!
You are hereby exempt from any chores or annoying business for at least three days, and your friends should carry you around on giant lily pads until it gets boring!
Thank you SO much! I have seriously been trying to figure it out for a while now. Hooray!!!
This seems like a relevant question (mostly) for this thread:
There was a book of fairy tales with GORGEOUS illustrations that I loved as a kid which had the original Little Mermaid story in it (in which the mermaid ultimately dies), and there was this story I adored which I can not find the name of--can someone help? Here is what happened:
A young girl who lived with her mean stepmother and spineless father was picking strawberries and another young girl mysteriously appeared, spoke with her, then took out a box that had in it a leaf with a dewdrop on it. She dropped the dew to the ground and an ocean appeared, and then the leaf turned into a boat! They sailed to the girl's home-land/dimension(?) where the people treated the strawberry-picking girl wonderfully and made her all sorts of fancy clothes. Then they made a statue of the girl and put a poisonous snake in it, and they sent that to the girl's home, the stepmother came out and yelled at the statue thinking it was the girl, and the snake came out, bit her, and she died. Then I think the dad got poisoned later also?
It was pretty dark. But cool! What was this story??? Does anyone know?
I worked in a cafe that was connected to a bookstore and the ONE PERK which made the terrible pay and tedium worth it (to me) was that we could take home the advance copies of books, to keep. At least I thought it was to keep. Apparently we were supposed to bring them back? Or people just did bring them back? Anyway I wound up with so many of them, it just felt awkward to bring them all back, so I kept them. So. . . accidently stolen! The end!
Also, sometimes I get drunk and insist someone borrow a book I love and then forget who I lent it to. This is why I have started buying every copy of certain books I find at used bookstores, so I have several to give away and not worry about getting back. I think I have 6 copies of Dylan Thomas' 'Under Milk Wood'. No one has wanted to "borrow" one yet, but I'm ready!
@baked bean On HerRoom.com there is this great lacy bra called the Timpa..something..(begins with a D I think). It isn't padded and it has an underwire but it is AWESOME! Also there are those Coobie bras that are kind of sportsbra-esque but they are cute w/ adjustable straps, light padding, no wires, and some have lace and they are soooooo comfy.
A friend who I hadn't seen in years came to visit me and started flossing his teeth AS WE WALKED DOWN THE STREET. IN A CITY. There were other people on the sidewalk! I said WTF but he kept doing it. I was embarrassed to be walking with him.
I am still a little traumatized.
The flaming sword is pretty cool. I want one. I don't know what for. I too would probably just wave it heroically as I walked down the beach at dusk.
Now I understand you, Grimes.
@sparkles When I finished Angel, I immediately watched it again and paid more attention to the evolution of Wesley.
But I am a huge nerd, and also had a crush on him.
There are some Angel comic books called "After the Fall" which keep the story going. I read a few of them and *some* of them were good!
And Dollhouse and Firefly are also awesome!
Yay cats and babies! My first word was not "Mommy" or "Daddy" but "Cat". Charlie was my very best friend.
Now I have a cat who is an asshole and meows all night long but I still love him. What does he want? I don't know!!
