OK, is anyone else freaked right the hell out by Latisse? Have you seen these ads? I was watching Hulu tonight, minding my own damn business, then out of the blue I get an ad for Latisse, the only FDA approved treatment for inadequate or not enough lashes. Now, first of all, if you need [...]

Updates From My World

So. Things have changed in the last few weeks. I’ve gotten somewhat employed (yay!), I’ve found a place to live for the year (yay!) for a ridiculously reasonable rent (yay!), and I’ve gone on more intense medication for my migraines, which so far has resulted in my first span of five full days sans headache [...]

Administrative Details

If you’re viewing the site from an iPhone or iPod Touch, you’ll notice that it looks pretty different these days, courtesy of WPTouch. Nifty, eh?

OW

Briefly, just to complain on as many platforms as possible, I have now had three migraines in the last two weeks, and can I just say OW. Apparently my brain doesn’t like being unemployed? Or hot? Or living…with lucky bamboo? Something has made it very unhappy. Lucky for me, they just came out with a [...]

Numbered, For Your Reading Ease, One Through Four

I woke one recent morning in a flat panic that I’d killed someone I’m quite fond of accidentally through my own idiocy. Thank you, dreams! Thank you very much. So lovely. In this dream, I was living back on Stanford campus, riding a pink beach cruiser with a ridiculously high set of handlebars. Every time [...]

Let me just say that there has GOT to be a reason why this woman is selling her engagement ring on facebook at such a serious discount, and that reason is one hell of a story.

By the end of the first week, people have grouped (or coupled) into their super-amazing-forever friend/loveinterest clumps. By the second week, they’re an old established [...]

books are like bacteria

You can tell that you are a person who reads herself to sleep when most of what you clean off of your bedside table is a stack of books tall enough that you have to take it down the ladder in two bunches. That sentence has been sitting in my draft folder for two weeks, [...]

Playlist Ephemera

If you check out the playlist section in the sidebar, you’ll see that I’m up to date with the track listings from my monthly playlists. My notes and links are only done through say, September of 2007 or so, but I’m working to catch up on them. That’s the part that takes forever, so hold [...]

these are a few of my…things

So, it’s been a turbulent couple of weeks around here. I’m not going to go into it, the internet being a public forum and all, but no worries, I’m finding my feet again. However, I’m still pretty much operating at minimum functional capacity. I’m getting the vital stuff done, but everything on the list below [...]
