Brushes for Mel

Hey Mel!


I use my brushes incorrectly about 50% of the time. I know what type of brushes I need for which purpose, but I don't need 50 different brushes for each little thing I could possibly do. I do recommend, however, some basic brushes that are almost required to create any kind of look. I've never been able to find an "eyeshadow brush" or "packing brush" that deposited enough shadow for my liking, so I didn't include the one I've been using (it's a Sonia Kashuk one). click here to open the postCollapse )

in which TV STAR

This entry is formatted to attempt to be easier to read, because it's really, really long. Uh, but read it in my journal style, because this is table-formatted and my style deals with it interestingly... Obviously, if you haven't watched the episode yet, there are SUPER MEGA SPOILERS in this post. If you're in Canada, or use a Canadian proxy, watch here. If you're elsewhere, you can stream it in widescreen watch on Youtube, or just straight torrent it. If, for some reason, you want to see the commercial, here you go!

Writer's Block: National Pi Day

How many digits of pi have you memorized?


3.14159: to 5 decimal places, because I round to tenths or hundredths after calculation, so using 5 after gives me an answer in the accuracy I like. Other than that, I don't see a need to memorise pi.

Since a number of US newspapers have refused to republish the latest Doonesbury cartoon strip which highlights the way Republicans are attempting to undermine a woman's right to choose, I feel it's important to make sure the message still gets across.

The shaming room awaits.

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

What's worse: a pit of snakes or a pit of spiders?


What kind of each? I'm scared of neither, but I can tell you I'd rather have snakes crawl on me than spiders. If it's cobras vs tiny spiders, I'd rather have spiders (tiny spiders are scared of me!). If it's black widows vs garter snakes, I'll take garter snakes.

Writer's Block: 9/11

Where were you?


Grade 11 Ancient History class. The teacher pulled in a TV and let us watch the news coverage instead of teaching.

There, I answered. Now go away.

1st Sep, 2011

Got me a Model Mayhem page, finally. I don't know how to work with it...or...how to do anything. People seem really nice,though, and I'm sure they won't mind my inexperience.

Work is just busy. We have a HUGE paint sale so I've been fairly exhausted.

Managed to get a $40 Rock Band drum kit, game for $20, Track Pack 2 for $10, Rock Band for $5, Metal Track Pack for $3. Dmitri and I are now VERY entertained. Sweating our nuts off.

What else? OH. I read all your LJ entries, I really do; I just rarely reply because I often don't know what to say. Some of you are back in school and that's AWESOME, some of you have started new jobs and that's awesome, too! A couple of you have hit some hard times, and, while it sucks, it will pass; perseverance.

I still love my flat iron.
