Re: How would Justice Scalia insult you?

See, something that always baffled me--as someone in the wedding industry AND a business owner--is why the right wing, which is owned by big business and bends over to allow it to stampede over it all the time, would stand in the way of same-sex marriage when it's going to boost business, revenue an...

Re: Best buying tips for new cell phones?

Apple doesn't really go on sale. Sometimes you might be able to get it "on sale" from somewhere like Target or Best Buy but the cellular contract usually gets you in a bind.

ame, that might get this thread shut down. Here in Fantasyland, where only faux niceness is permitted, we must restrict ourselves to nuance, metaphor and understatement. Well, let me give ame's post (and the many others before it!) a very heartfelt "+1" before that happens, then! :appl: :...

It's difficult to discuss social conflicts wit...

This house is just old and sucks energy. I remember our first Winter.

Re: Sleep apart from your SO?

We do sometimes, and we have in the past. He snores SO BADLY that sometimes I just cannot deal with him. But we also work very opposite hours, and he also is more of a night owl. So sometimes it's less apart and more "he comes to bed when I am getting up."

So I finally have my dream ring (see avatar) after all these years. But I can't seem to get used to it. It's been months now, and I live in paranoid fear of wearing it all the time. I can't do it.

Re: Beauty Products You Are Loving...

I am also a weird shade of pale, and finding a match is nearly impossible. If it's light enough it's pink. I need a nice olive shade.

It is like buying fake MAC makeup (or at least it very well could be). It's risky buying any beauty products on Ebay and/or Amazon because there's no guarantee that it's authentic.

Re: Beauty Products You Are Loving...

Step 3 is basically a slightly weaker step 2. Most salons that do Olaplex should sell it. It's the "take home" one. It's a pathetically small bottle and costs too damn much but it works really well. But really all you need to do is use a spray bottle to dampen the hair and put it on the ha...
