I guess I'm being an asshole. Carry on.
the busy bee has no time for sorrow.
1) Dude is self-admittedly a bad lay. Why would I want to read about someone who is bad at something complaining about how other people are bad at it?
2) Dude's major complaints seem to be that women present themselves as trophies or inanimate objects instead of active participants -- but this is a problem with our culture, not individual women. Place blame where blame is due.
3) Dude doesn't seem to realize that women sometimes prefer grinding to up-down because grinding can be more pleasurable to the female anatomy. There's one pro tip for him.
4) The choice to participate or not participate in a certain specific sexual activity does not necessarily make one frigid or a freak. It is up to each individual to choose what they are comfortable doing with his or her own body. Less judgement plz.
I have been loving their Celestial moisturizer. I wish it wasn't so expensive, but it's lasting a really long time and I still have most of it, so it's sort of worth it.

So I work in a bead store/jewelry studio, and I'm taking over a class for a coworker who was scheduled to teach on her birthday on the 27th. I'll be teaching this technique:
Does anybody have any interest in learning to make this over Tinychat or Skype some night? I can talk you through getting materials beforehand and you don't really need tools or anything, so it's pretty much as cheap a project as the beads you pick out. I don't think it's going to be that hard a class to teach, but a practice run might be sort of fun.
Edit: I'll give it some time to see who's interested and then we can figure out a good night for it.

Hannah, I'd be interested. It might take me a few days to make it to a craft store for supplies though. I used to know how to make those and can't remember.
LTBL - yea, maybe check out the small travel size hair dryers, or maybe a curling iron or a hot air brush? Something that doesn't expel air (or does so at a lower volume/force) will draw a lot less power. Those small inverters are awesome though for charging electronics. Just remember to run the car engine every once in a while if you're using it, one year we used the inverter a few times over the weekend and then realized on Monday morning that we'd drained my friend's car battery. Oops.
Those look very cool, Hannah. Are they bracelets or can they be hair accessories too?
They're bracelets, but I think if you were to omit the closure and attach the ends to elastic, you could probably make a headband. Might be tangly, though.
I would be interested in making those. Simple and chic looking. I'm in. As with Heidi, I will need a minute to get out to a craft store.
Can you list the supplies needed?
Any particular beads or what works better?
And is that a waxed hemp string?
EDIT: I vote for Thursday around 8-ish (PST)

- Enough beads to go around your wrist as many times as you want your bracelet to wrap. Make sure they have large enough holes that you can get your needle and thread/needle and cord through twice without too much difficulty. OK to be a couple of inches shorter than the finished length - we'll take up some of that length with the closure. Most glass beads, metal beads, or larger/more consistently drilled stones should work. Avoid pearls - they look amazing, but take much longer to sew in because they have tiny and infuriating holes. Japanese seed beads in size 6 or 8 work really well, come in very nice colors, and aren't very expensive.
- An attractive button with holes that your leather can fit through to use as a clasp. Shank or...whatever the other kind is called will both work.
- Cord or thread for sewing your beads in. As long as it's sturdy, you can either use something that blends in with your leather and lies fairly flat (nylon thread works well, just test its strength first and make sure it doesn't break easily) or a heavier needle-attached cord in a contrasting color like Griffin cord (looks like this and is really easy to find - it's advisable to get two 2-meter cards if using this just in case you run long). Remember - if using thread, your thread technically has to fit through the beads four times since it doubles to go through the needle.
- A wire beading needle (not needed if using Griffin Cord)
Hannah, can you just send me a pack of supplies if I paypal you money to cover the stuff plus shipping?
If it makes you feel any better, we forgot to get gas before heading to the campgrounds last year, and didn't realize until we were already in line. Lol. We used up a lot of it in the line and we were afraid of running out if we got caught in a line leaving, so we left early. Hahaha
Hey guys, sorry if I'm repeating a question that's been posted.
I'd really like to do my hair at Coachella.. should I bring a hairdryer or straightening iron? Is it a bad idea? Are there outlets in the shower/bathroom area?
"Inhale the good shit, exhale the bull$hit"...
Of course it's been mentioned before, a mere two pages ago. But in case you're not into the "reading thing", No, it's a bad idea. You can jimmy-rig an outlet to your car battery if you're that hard up on straightening your hair. Otherwise, up-do's are your friend.
Well, there are outlets in the bathrooms. But why bother? It's the desert. Your hair will dry very quickly.
I love Miki. She's so weird looking and wonderful.
Not really girly related, but I feel the need to vent:
The people who moved into the unit next door chain smoke. I don't even know how it's possible to be a chain smoker in the state of CA these days... like, what do these people do for a living that allows them to stop what they're doing and go out and smoke every five minutes?!? And when I'm home - no matter what time of day or night - if I go to the kitchen sink to get a drink of water, or do dishes, or prep for a meal (my kitchen window faces their back patio), one or the other or both of them is out there smoking EVERY SINGLE FUCKING TIME. So inevitably we're staring each other in the face multiple times a day. It's very strange and awkward and I hate it and it makes me want to open the window and yell QUIT FUCKING SMOKING WILL YOU?!? I've resorted to putting a large boston fern in one half of the window so at least I have something I can hide behind. (Don't tell me to put up a curtain - this place has precious few windows as it is and I refuse to block any more light.) Plus, they smoke while they walk their cute dalmatian, and they're gonna give that poor dog emphysema, too. GAH.
Could you put up a curtain? ..... something sheer and gauzy might help at least avoid making eye contact. I did that with my bedroom windows -- I have blinds too, but didn't want everyone on the street to be able to see in while my blinds are open. They can still see if there's someone in the room, but details are obscured. It doesn't block any of my light. (I used tulle sheers).
All the units face west and there is a shared greenspace along the canyon in the back that all the patios and balconies look out over. If I put up a curtain, I can't see the grass and the trees and the bunnies while I'm at the kitchen window (their back patio is the first thing in the line-of-sight, unfortunately). I hate not being able to see out the kitchen window.
