February week 2? week 3? I don’t even know anymore

Watched The Accountant which seemed like a superhero movie without superpowers in the generally accepted sense. I genuinely wonder what the Autistic community’s opinion of this film is, and I’d they had any input (or financial stake in it.) Liked it though, bang bang shoot em up type movie (or as my Mom described “A BUM BUM BUM,”) with a bit of brooding Ben Affleck Oscar bait-y drama, and a hard left veering happy ending that also favorably compares autistic children to proteges of Dr. Xavier. Like I said, we all thoroughly enjoyed it, but I do wonder how people with Autism feel about it, because I could see it going either way.

Accidental natural makeup

Jordi of ItsLikelyMakeup posted a Throwback Thursday photo on Instagram a while back of her as a teenager in the go-to Scene Queen weird dolly makeup, and naturally instead of responding with what the fuck were we thinking, I was inspired and immediately wanted to recreate it.

Ahh!! I want to embed the actual IG but I can’t find it! It’s from December 2016. She posts a lot lol

Now my question is what the fuck were we using in 2006, because the above was what happened when I used what in my opinion, was an excessive amount of blush, and a coordinating lip color that seemed garishly pink. It looks downright natural. I think I own makeup that’s either of such better quality or has developed it’s own consciousness and minimalist aesthetic that it’s somehow directly/indirectly preventing me from charging up to max clown-level.

February, week 1

I’m really proud of myself, because they left the security sensor on a $20 tote bag I bought at TJ Maxx, and instead of driving back to the store and having them remove it, I just cut that fucker off.

I wrapped the potentially dye filled part in a Ziploc then cut the chain with a pair of 3M plastic packaging cutting scissors I got at Michael’s in preparation for Christmas a couple years ago.

Best investment ever. Those shears will cut anything.

But I’m all high on myself because I’m not much for rule breaking, but in my deteriorated mental state I was all, not today TJ Maxx, and I got shit done and nothing blew up on me.

And I got to take my tote bag into D.C. because my Uncle is here for some trade show.

My Mom’s friend’s own stress response has become ordering things from Williams & Sonoma off her iPad while hiding in her bed, and in a near-literal turning-life’s-lemons-into-lemonade scenario, she bought this amazing Yuzu-Meyer Lemon Cocktail Mix that is one half of the classiest whiskey sour I’ve ever had.

I still can’t get my files off my memory card. At this point, it has nothing to do with the files themselves and everything to do with me needing to dominate my phone.
