On Q: Why Does This Grape Tastes Like Cotton Candy? A: Because It Was Genetically Engineered to Taste Like Cotton Candy

YOU GUYS. I had these a year or two ago--Fresh Direct strangely delivered them to me in an order (I did not order them) and they were incredible. I even tweeted Fresh Direct about them and they said I got a sample of a coming product. I searched for them on FD to order again but they were never there. I've been spreading the word about these mystical grapes ever since. Try themmm!

I'm from Newtown, CT, and what happened to my town has obviously resonated very deeply with me. I recently read "Reducing Gun Violence in America" and statistics like this are so mindblowing--there's an entire chapter dedicated to domestic violence and how women are particularly vulnerable to it. If you want to get angrier/inform yourself/have your face fall off from shock, read that book. It covers all angles and so sharply illustrates why we need to change our laws and who gets access to guns. Sorry to broaden the topic, but this is basically in the top percentage of things I think about daily now.

On Friday Open Thread

That was my elementary school, guys. And my mom works for the school system (thankfully she took the day off and wasn't there!) This is literally hitting too close to home. I keep desk-crying.

I feel so close to this post, living 1 block away from the place this girl thinks everyone should be familiar with.

On Beauty Q&A: Nails 101

@DullHypothesis Thanks for the suggestion! I know I have one that brand that is nearly that color, maybe a little lighter. It definitely doesn't coat in 2 for me, but like @KeLynn said, maybe I am looking for it to do something it's not made to do? All I know is every time I try I end up miserable.

On Beauty Q&A: Nails 101

This is so far down the thread, not sure if anyone will see. I do my nails myself every week and I'm pretty good at it but one thing I absolutely cannot do is paint my nails with a pale pink or peach color. It seems to take 4 coats before it shows up at all, and then I inevitably ruin it because even with a quick dry top coat it still takes a few hours to dry. Whyyyyyy?!! How can I get better at this/what am I doing wrong?
