The mind boggles

Pot, kettle. I know you've met.
While Dick was in New York tooting G Dub's horn in the face of hundreds of thousands of protesters G Dub "was in West Virginia, accusing Democratic rival Sen. John Kerry of changing his stand on coal industry issues that are vital to the state's economy. 'Be careful of somebody whose position shifts in the wind', he said."
I don't know why I am still constantly blown away by the sheer HYPOCRISY.

Right on!

I just discovered this journal today and so far I am hooked. This entry made me say "HAYULL YEAH!" about 50 times. Posted by Hello

It's official, I'm old

This evening at the grocery store, after the teenage carry-out boy put my groceries in the trunk he said to me "Take it easy, ma'am". Ok, first of all... what the hell ever happened to "Thank you, Have a nice day, Come again" and all that polite stuff they are supposed to say?? Second, "Take it easy, ma'am"??? Why throw the polite ma'am on there with the casual "take it easy"?? Ohhh, and C.) What would he have thought if I had replied with "I'll take it any way I can get it"?? ha! That would teach him. Or not. I can't believe the sheer disrespect of people now. Not only in little ways like please and thank you but in big ways. I swear some days it makes me not want to leave the house. I was brought up better than that and I used to turn the other cheek so to speak when people were rude, but nowdays I find myself snapping back before I can stop the words coming out of my mouth. Then I feel bad. I wonder if those other people ever do? I doubt it. They probably either don't know any better or don't care. I had to go to the dreaded WalMart before the grocery store to pick up school supplies (that their father was supposed to already have bought, thanks for leaving it to the night before school starts to tell me you didn't get them, asshole) and it was a madhouse. All the rude people were out. One woman in particular really pissed me off when I came around the end of an aisle and she was parked in the middle of the aisle I turned on and then had the nerve to tell me that I needed to move, she needed out. I had already started backing up to let her out when she said that and I just stopped. I looked at her and said "I *was* trying" and gave her the "look". You know the one, "I was trying but you opened your big fat mouth and now you can forget me moving, find another damned way out, you hag". We had a stand-off for a minute and she finally turned her cart another way. Normally, I wouldn't dream of being so rude, but I have totally had it with letting people get away with that shit. I think grocery store aisles are like the highway, keep your ass to the right, pass courteously, don't leave your car sitting in the middle of the road unattended and by god don't tailgate me. It is bad enough that people run all willy-nilly in the stores but then when they have the gall to be rude on top of it, that tears it. Like I said, some days I really don't want to leave the house and go out into the great stupid masses. They're dragging me down with them! I must be better than that!

Fun meme stuff. I saw this at Joelle's who found it at Stacy's who found it here .
The idea is to strike out the stuff that doesn't apply to me. Interesting how many of them do.


Fun to be with. Secretive. Difficult to fathom and to be understood.(maybe to some but I don't think I am) Quiet unless excited or tensed. Takes pride in oneself. Has reputation. Easily consoled. Honest. Concerned about people's feelings. Tactful. Friendly. Approachable. Emotional temperamental and unpredictable. Moody and easily hurt. Witty and sparkly. Not revengeful. Forgiving but never forgets. Dislikes nonsensical and unnecessary things. Guides others physically and mentally. Sensitive and forms impressions carefully. Caring and loving. Treats others equally. Strong sense of sympathy. Wary and sharp. Judges people through observations. Hardworking. No difficulties in studying. Loves to be alone. Always broods about the past and the old friends. Likes to be quiet. Homely person. (does this mean homely ugly or homely likes to be home??) Waits for friends. Never looks for friends. Not aggressive unless provoked. Prone to having stomach and dieting problems. Loves to be loved. Easily hurt but takes long to recover.

10 steps to a perfect manicure (or pedicure)

Supplies: Bowl of warm water with one squirt liquid hand soap, orangewood stick or stick with plastic tipped cuticle pusher, hand towel, emory board, 3 or 4-way buffer, Q-tips, polish remover, base coat (Stickey by Creative or similar), polish of your choice, top coat, UV nail dryer.

  1. Soak fingertips in bowl of warm, soapy water for 3 or 4 minutes.
  2. Remove from water and using orangewood stick or cuticle pusher, gently push cuticles back. Rinse. Dry with hand towel, pushing cuticles back with towel.
  3. File edges of nails with emory board, going in one direction. Don’t saw back and forth as it tears the nail.
  4. Buff nails using 3 or 4-way buffer, following steps numbered on buffer.
  5. Rinse hands to remove residue. Dry thoroughly.
  6. Dip Q-tip in polish remover and rub over each nail.
  7. Apply thin layer of base coat. Let set one minute.
  8. Apply two thin coats polish, waiting one minute between coats.
  9. Apply thin layer of top coat.
  10. Place hands under UV dryer for several minutes until set.

Useful tips: Store nail polish in refrigerator. Remove and let reach room temperature before using. Roll polish bottle between your palms, never shake it. Don’t polish your nails under an a/c vent or fan. Don’t change your polish more than once a week or your nails will dry out.

Keep in mind this deals with the nails only. There are many more extras that you can do to keep your hands and feet looking great. Lotion is a must. A foot scrub or sloughing lotion massaged onto feet keeps them smooth. Pumice stones aren't a good idea as they really only make the skin tougher.

This post was inspired by a post over on livejournal on the hip_domestics forum. I realized that many people don't know the proper steps to follow for a professional manicure.
