Puppies

This is how my dog Grimm sleeps.



View the fang hanging out of her mouth. Sometimes she has one paw extended, as though she's orating. She is 110 pounds before breakfast, and she rolls about like a terrier.

My favorite part about this picture is Sage in the background staring at her.

Sagey: You are NOT normal, my friend.

Lipstick!

I'm gonna be really girly for a minute.

OMG, like, they totally discontinued my favorite color of lipstick and mine is worn down to a nub. But my awesome boyfriend got me three lipsticks in *facepalm* L'Oreal Shine Delice Violet Delite and now I will never run out!

(As an aside, I resent companies like Febreze air fresheners and L'oreal cosmetics running "limited edition" colors and scents. WTF, you are not BPAL.)

I will never run out because I use things like a Depression housewife. Just today in the shower I squirted out a bunch of shampoo when I meant to use conditioner and I carefully unscrewed the lid and scooped it back into the bottle. I wear shoes until they fall off and then put off buying more because $20 is so much money. So I made one stick of lipstick last for something like four years. It helps that I don't wear make up on a daily basis, just for dates and readings and cons and such. That said, other than this lipstick, it's high time I just scrapped all the garbage make up I've been using in tiny amounts so as not to waste any and thus keeping bacteria and yuck-laden make up containers for years on end and switched to more naturally-derived stuff. Because apparently they are still putting mercury in mascara. Awesome, guys. Good thing I was writing a short story and needed to know about mercury poisoning.

But I'll keep the lipstick. You really can't overestimate how vital a good shade that looks sexy but not crazy goth or street corner and also leaves your lips soft. It might be made with baby seals' mercury-rich tears, but it's so pretty.
