odds and ends



1. “Maybe it’s not my period. MAYBE I’M REALLY DYING THIS TIME.” <– The mental dialogue I have with myself every month. Will it ever cease? Probably not. #hatehormones

2. I call bullshit on a few of these. What do you think?

3. What you learn in your 40s. “If you worry less about what people think of you, you can pick up an astonishing amount of information about them. You no longer leave conversations wondering what just happened. Other people’s minds and motives are finally revealed.” Great tidbits in this article.

4. Bwahaaaa. Inside a woman’s mind at Target.

5. This is INSANE. How old do you think this prodigy child is?

6. I simultaneously laughed out loud AND freaked out while reading this. Whoah.



  1. The Target article is Spot.ON! What is it about that place that sucks so many of us in?!

    And the creepiest things kids have said gave me chills. I’m not sure I’d be able to sleep if my kids said stuff like that to me. *shudder*

  2. Ann Calhoun says:

    um, Gwyneth Paltrow, you’ve got some Goop on your face

    • RIGHT?! Those are not her natural lashes.

      • Totally not! Her lashes AND brows are blonde to the point of invisible! I’m sure I’ve seen her in pictures with much less make-up than that. She has a Sissy Spacek look.

  3. I call bullshit on basically all of those! They are at the very least wearing tinted moisturizer and gloss.

  4. Beyonce is wearing lip gloss unless her lips are naturally a lovely rose pink. And Gwyneth, um yeah, how do I get lashes like that?

    Sarah, did you ever do a recap for this season’s final episode of Downton Abbey?

  6. #1 – Me. Every. Month. Only because things have changed so much now that I’m a bit older. It’s like all of my eggs are jumping ship and I’ll be in menopause (sp?) before 40. Thanks nature/universe/whoever!

  7. OMG those someecards are so spot on for my life this week. UGH!

  8. Dude. Way to bring it. Best round up I’ve seen anywhere in a long while. Still cry laughing at that last list.

    Since when do lips naturally come in cotton candy pink? If these ladies were not wearing some makeup, then there was some photoshop being used to pop some color and smooth out some tones.

  10. Drummer wunderkind has a website and a FB page :) The System of a Down video is from 2010 – here’s his official FB page link: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jonah-Rocks-Official/288018058405

  11. Just discovered your blog! Love it!

  12. OMG. That Target article. Spot on.

  13. The comics in #1: HILARIOUS. So funny.

  14. Ha! total b.s. on most of those “no-makeup” shots. You can SEE the gloss on half of them! Plus, no points for celebrities looking good in B & W. ANYONE can look good in B&W, especially with photoshop involved. I’m seeing this post way late but just had to say you are so right!
