There's something wrong with me. I went to one of my favorite restaurants last night to get my FAVORITE chili because it was ONE degree outside and the waitress informs me they don't have it because of their "seasonal" Mardi Gras menu.
Apparently my rather devastated and uncomprehending reaction was not very positive as she wasn't interested in interacting with me after that.
Today, I found an interesting-but-not-significant dress at Goodwill, with no tag (this has happened to me quite a bit recently, and it's super-annoying), but... with the original tags. The nice cashier took it to the back, came back a few minutes later, flashes the price in front of me and I think, "$6, not bad." Then I see it more closely and it says SIXTY. I exclaimed at this, and as I was somewhat flustered, kind of waved it away, and she wasn't interested in interacting with me after that.
I promise you, though - I promise you - that being nice to service professionals is one of my top 5 goals as a human being, so both of these interactions kind of threw me off. Because - who stops serving chili in January?!?! In the midwest? And $60 for a dress at Goodwill?!?! Good grief.
I wasn't rude. I promise. I was just really, really surprised.
Service professionals, I apologize again. (I apologized to both and thanked them. I promise I'm not a huge jerk.)
In my continuing quest for low-maintenance curls (believe it or not, I'm not really into high-maintenance anything except, well, the amount of lip product on my lips), and my fascination with products I saw in magazines as a child but never had (see fairly recent experience with Conair Hot Stix), I found some Clairol "Lock and Roll" curlers, 2 of them in succession, and as I have longer hair now and they were cheap I got both. (I passed on the giant green Dakin tyrannosaurus rex but it was hard, man. It was really hard. I'm serious.)
If you think it's kind of gross that I buy used hair rollers you're probably right. I have nothing to say about this. Except that I bought them and I'm using them and you're right. But at least I don't buy used lip gloss.
Top of head.
Bottom of head.
We'll see how the curl lasts, but I LOVE THEM. Super-easy. Like, hair rollers for the super-lazy. I could just "unsnap" the rubber and let them fall out.
...And if you're wondering why I'm wearing a tank top, I also promise you I'm not insane (at least not very). It's just, like, 95 degrees inside and still about zero out. The windows are open. This is just how I roll here in Cleveland. Or should I say, roll with the punches, as I don't control the heat. Sorry, no - this is just how I lock and roll. Har.
Two sets of curlers: $7.50
