The Library of Sadness

Here's what I'm currently dealing with. Those are kitty insides. I need to memorize them. No one should ever have to memorize the inside of cats. And that water in the background? I don't think it's making me smarter.

I forced myself to be delivered to the library today to study. No out until 7pm.
I wish I was at home.
Drinking that stuff. Or wearing my pretty new shoes (they weren't allowed to come to the library - it's like 25 degrees outside).
And yes, those are pink glitter s on my nails.

Okay, I've got to get back to it. Or rather, back to gChat w. my sister.

Recent Recaps & the Weekend

A few pics & bits from some stuff I've been up to the past few weeks.
Prepare for random.
My friend Cassie took some great pics that I had to share...

(performing the cell block tango from chicago)
Monica West, my good friend, & most fabulous drag queen ever, performing at the Miss Max 27 pageant in January.

More drag queens! BINGO @ Flixx.
We didn't win, but cannot deny it was a fun time.

Casandra Evans was a great hostess. I can't wait for next time.

What I came home from work to before the Superbowl - Go Pack! (& FYI, those are definitely long underwear ol' Con is rocking) And you can see that I'm continuing on my fancy/goofy drink trend. I don't even remember what that pink thing was, ha.

My nails are all painted for the weekend: I went w. a new Sephora by OPI color, Leotard Optional. It's the prettiest nude shade. Highly recommended.

Pretty laid-back weekend ahead for us. We're celebrating Valentine's Day Sunday night since we both work Monday. More to come!
Happy Friday all!

Chinese New Year + Weekend Ahead

(nice fortune!)
It's already the weekend! Again! I'm definitely not complaining. Anyway, last night Conor & I celebrated the Chinese New Year with dinner @ our favorite Chinese restaurant, Rice Bowl. It's an old tradition I have from my days at Creighton University. We ate there all the time & now I take Conor as well.
Mm, egg rolls & Yum Yum chicken. Probably not the healthiest choice.
This weekend I'm looking forward to watching a few friends' bands play a show Saturday night & of course - Superbowl Sunday! We will be cheering on the Packers (cheese, Wisconsin, beer... hello!!!) at a friend's party Sunday night. I a good party.

Hope y'all have a good weekend - enjoy the big game!
(or the commercials, as that's what I'm usually paying attention to)

Product Reviews

I know most of you are probably holed up at home due to the weather. And I know that cabin feav. tends to lead to online shopping. Anyway, I've picked up a few new items recently I'd love to recommend:
  • Peter Thomas Roth Laser-Free Resurfacer: my skin is much smoother & less blotchy/red since I've started this guy about 2 to 3 weeks ago. A great serum if you want to even out your complexion! I'm also super prone to breakouts & have not had any probs. I it!
  • Carole's Daughter Tui Hair Smoothie: smells amazing (mango/guava/passionfruit) & makes my hair SO shiny. I only use it once or twice per week because I have fine hair, but it's truly amazing. And all natural!
Have a great day
