Someone knows me too well

A friend said this reminded him of me:…Yeah, pretty much.

This is the first time I’ve found makeup interesting

Here’s an interesting post on the science behind “SmartShade” foundations, which are marketed as having the magical ability to match your skin tone. How do they work? Spoilers: They don’t. But the article is still worth reading for the science lesson behind the deception. Speaking of which, tell me again how these things can be …

How to make guys like you

Here that, ladies and gentlemen? Nerds = awesome to date. …Now, if only I knew how to find the cute godless nerds in Seattle – I think we’re all too busy hiding in our apartments reading blogs and playing video games to actually run into each other. What a conundrum.

Ok, some things don't change

From my Xanga in 2001, whining about no boys liking me (yes, I was a typical 13 year old): Maybe I should just become a nun or something. … Wait, I don’t even go to church or believe that hoo-ha. Hehe.

Oh, how things change

I rediscovered my old Xanga blog the other day. Most of my entries are from age 13 to 15*, so it’s both painful and hilarious to read. For example, I found a post where I was whining about fashion – nothing new there, I suppose, but I loved this line from 2003 (bolded): None of …

Old Navy synthetic ballet flats, $20; Old Navy. Her own necklace. Just to remind you, this is what that outfit looked like:$158 for a pair of jeans? $220 for …

I’m going to NYC for a magazine photoshoot!

Please excuse me while I get some stereotypically girly glee out of my system: SQUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!…Okay, I’m still insanely excited, so forgive me while I flail for a post. I was contacted by More Magazine about doing an interview for their piece on “Young Feminists.” More is an American woman’s lifestyle magazine targeted towards the 40+ …

Haircuts, irrationality, and girliness

I chopped off 10 inches of hair today.I swear it looks better than that photo. My camera is literally falling apart (the duct tape is failing), so taking a good picture was difficult. Anyway, I’m relieved to have it cut. Starting when I was about 11, I’ve gone through a cycle of cutting my hair …

I now have my official atheist chick bling

I’m not typically into jewelry, but when I saw Surly-Ramics, I knew I needed one. Surly Amy (who’s also a Skepchick) is a wonderful artist who produces awesome skeptical, atheist, and science themed jewelry (amongst other things). I had been lurking on Etsy, waiting for the perfect color, but I finally found exactly what I …
