So I'm going to get a Trapper Keeper and lots of colored markers and write the names of boys all over it and probably the names of some of my favorite bands and like it's like a Vision Board and I'll make sure there are plenty of rainbows and unicorns and mystical magical things because I'm 12. Hee hoo, winky nudge, har har ho ho.

Beest -king of keeping me updated from fark etc- has never heard of Chuck Testa. I feel special, in a redneck with a few dirty patches kind of way. Kinda surprised because both of the boys are all "Nope, Chuck Testa" but gotta admit selective hearing is a bonus more often than not....

I just learned that the fastest growing religion in the US is the Shakers.

Last year, there were 3 of them at their Sabbathday Maine location., and this year there are 5 of them. They have almost doubled in size in the last year!

Went to see The Woman in Black today.
Was at near boiling point most of the way through.

None of the jumps or scares made me jump or scared because of the constant sussaration of crinkly wrappers (WHY THE F--- DO CINEMAS SELL THEM??!!) whispers and giggles. I couldn't commit to the film or the atmosphere it is supposed to generate because of the constant noise. Everything that happened was happening in a film, on the screen in front of me. Which is logical of course, but I usually absorb a film as much as watch it. I have the terrible habit of talking like a character that has engaged me for an hour afterwards.

Trouble is, we went to see it in the afternoon during half term. This was for my benefit.
It is cheaper to see an earlier showing, and we didn't think about the fact it was a 12A, which meant lots of giggly girls and immature boys.

Still, Mum and I made it our Valentine's date and it was good to spend the time with her.
I shushed the girls behind us twice (gently) and had to do the same for Mum! Like I couldn't have waited to find out one of the actors in the film was also the star of a recent TV programme I hadn't watched... Shhhhhhhh.

Nail varnish never dries.
At least not on my nails.

It's either a secret the rest of the female world is keeping from me, or I have some sort of chemical imbalance which means I can still RUIN my nailvarnish 45 minutes after putting it on.

I remember one of the student nurses holding us up while she applied a coat of nailvarnish before we went out for the night.
At the time I thought WTF? Because I would have had to sit rigid, not touching anything for at least 30 minutes afterwards, and even then trashed the whole thing just blowing my nose.

Yes. I have ruined nails right now.
If I so chose I could probably scrape off the coats with another fingernail, they are still so soft and vulnerable.

Do you use quick dry? Do you let it dry between coats? how thick are the coats? I only ever have a problem if I cake it on too thick or use cheap polish that isn't "quick-dry". Current fave is Sally Hanson Hard as Nails or something like that. I only do my toenails, though. First coat is dry by the time I've finished it, second takes about 5 mnutes. It's pretty cheap, too.

I used to use Hanson. Should do again.

And yes, the fact that I haven't gone crazy about this in a while suggests it's the nail varnish. This one just caught my eye around lunchtime and I thought - ooh! haven't painted my fingernails in ages! So it might be a cheapo one - honestly can't remember.

I can still make an indent in it now. Ridiculous.

Best to spend a bit more (maybe buying when they're on special?). Also, if they're old the can get pretty gummy.

And yes, do nice thin coats and let them dry as much as possible between coats, but in the end, they're still going to take over an hour to be totally dry. Maybe even a bit longer.

dented and smudged as they are, they are still intact.
I might even make it to 24 hours without a chip this time!

Swings & roundabouts.

Just signed up for a 6 mile Midnight Walk with Mum. July 14th.
it's for the hospice where Nanny and Mum's friend Breda died.
15 entry fee but that mostly covers admin/ medals/ t-shirt.
So if anyone wants to sponsor me, it's for a good cause and all money will go directly to the charity.

I'll be 40 by then, might not even make it!!
