For the last few days I've been just barely functional. My glasses broke and because I'm a stupid I hadn't yet gotten my spares fixed so I was basically walking around like Mr. Magoo making mistakes the a monkey wouldn't make. Until you lose part of your eyesight you take for granted simple things like lines and dots, the difference between a 3 and 7, one shoe and another, your apartment and the neighbor's - you get the picture.
Thankfully I was able to get my glasses today and I feel like my life has begun anew. Anyway, here's what I've been up to lately:
I've had to put some books in the freezer lately (like Joey in Friends) so I've decided to read some really mindless novels that are always fun.
I watched a terrible movie the other day, Dear John. Lamefest. It starts out ok and you can pretty much guess the direction the movie is going to take, then all of a sudden the author had an identity crisis and went in a completely different direction, made a mess of what could have been a decent chic flick starring none other than the love of my life, Channing Tatum - be still my heart. When I heard it was the same author as the classic and much beloved The Notebook, I was exited to watch it. Don't be fooled, it is not the same author by any stretch of the imagination. This is a different, very lame author.
How awesome is the new season of True Blood? My God! - those writers are amazing. Between Bill, Eric and the oh-so-sexy new werewolf there is no shortage of eye candy. The plot is developing nicely and there are several mysteries afoot. J'adore!
On a sadder note, my beloved Spartacus was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and the series is naturally going to take a little break while he recovers so the second season won't begin when it was originally scheduled to. The good news is that he is recovering nicely, caught it in the early stages and should be fine soon.
I've been using Benefit's Powderflage and I have to say that while it is by no means a miracle product, it is a very good product and seems to keep my under-eye concealer in place. This is mainly what I want it for anyway, so it's not an issue for me that it doesn't brighten like the lights of Paris (which is more or less what I had expected after reading the description). I've also been using Benefit Throbbb. At first I thought the blush was too sheer to make a difference, but after using it to brighten and beautify my cheeks after contouring with bronzer I found that it worked like a dream. It gives a subtle pink hue, very delicately illuminates and give you that very becoming flush, like you're blushing. So sexy.
When I woke up the other day and saw my sink covered in hair shavings I thought to myself and then screamed, "This is the kind of shit that makes straight women envy lesbians".
