I'm American but living in the UK, and I keep getting jealous of friends who get married and get the spouse visa. I'd really like to get a "friend visa" where one or more friends could go down to the registry and say, this chick is great! We'd like to keep her here! But unfortunately our society values romantic love higher than friendlove, so this will never happen and my married friends look at me sadly.
Brushing your teeth in the shower wastes so much water! This is like the time I read "to save water, turn off the tap while brushing" and was like, there are people who leave the tap on? Why would anyone do that?
Also remember to hold the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your teeth. This gets the grime near the gums and reduces enamel scratching. (If you want to see the dangers of over brushing and too much Mountain Dew, there's plenty of internet evidence.)
A food historian and reenactor (with whom I, ahem, took historical cooking classes) suggests using Thai fish sauce as garum. It should add a salty flavor, but not overly fishy.
This is perfect.
I want to see the peer-review of the original Dove study. #science
I'm ok with most air travel grievances, but I hate that I have to lug around my carry-on (which is usually pretty big as I never check) and I always have to use the bathroom like a million times and maneuver the carry-on in and out. (It has become easier since I have the Patagonia MLC backpack - best ever - but I just have to watch out not to drop pieces in the toilet. Also, still a schlep.) I wish I could pre-check it at the gate for them to hold until I get on the plane.
Also, more airports need wifi. Khartoum had wifi over two years ago. Heathrow just got it. Gatwick doesn't have. JFK & LGW don't. ATL doesn't. Khartoum, why are you the leader in this???
Can someone, anyone, please explain how you forget a tampon is in there. 90% of the time I am aware that I am wearing one, either because it's a super or because the string is being uncomfortable, and the other 10% I am not wearing one at all because I hear horror stories about people losing them and I get nervous. I AM 26 YEARS OLD. How can you just forget???
Can someone ask Jolie how to clean the toilet brush? I'm sure it requires setting up a mile-wide sterile zone.
@Beaks How does that stuff even get there???
@frenz.lo I didn't bring a miniskirt to summer camp until I realized that I would be socially isolated if I didn't the next year. Turns out I was socially isolated anyway because I wore goggles in the shower and just didn't really give a hoot about dances.
