Lo and behold, I start lurking on GT and the question I was born to answer is put out there! Laura Calder is my guide in many things (fashion, food, and that's all you need), so it's no surprise that French Food at Home is my jam. I wish I had The Cooking Channel again so that I could get the inspiration to cook… » 7/26/14 6:07pm 7/26/14 6:07pm

I'm about to age myself, but whatever: My brother rented the VHS of the first two episodes or Ranma 1/2 at our local video store and we watched that video multiple times before we returned it.I loved everything from the art style to the music to the story, and I consider that series one of my favorites.From there, I… » 6/23/14 1:53pm 6/23/14 1:53pm

I'm getting a vibe from this meme that it's supposed to be directed at women with it's "honey" and "babe" used in a condescending way. The first one is judging women for liking guys with snapbacks and tattoos, and the second one is judging women for wearing piercings and leggings. That is to say, this meme was created… » 6/23/14 8:56am 6/23/14 8:56am

Bikini Woes And Accomplishments

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I ordered the Elomi Isis Swim Bra in Navy. I was determined, that summer, to wear a bikini in public. Problem was, I never quite got the right bottom for my top, so all of my swimming events were done in the same swimsuit I wore for water aerobics that winter. It was a moment… » 6/17/14 10:17am 6/17/14 10:17am

Elomi has a good underwire swim bra, and they sell them at Bare Necessities, but you can probably get a better deal at whatever local online bra retailers you can find and search for "swimwear". They only come in black, navy, and purple, but they sell them every year. I have the 42 E, and while I've gained some… » 6/15/14 12:22pm 6/15/14 12:22pm

Tea-Time Review: Twinings Loose-Leaf Earl-Grey

As a child, my mother and I would have tea parties and I would be called Miss Irissilla and we'd talk about Mister Bigglesworth coming to our house (This was around the time that I've both watched Pride and Prejudice and Austen Powers). I loved everything about those moments from watching the milk diffuse in the tea… » 6/15/14 10:56am 6/15/14 10:56am
