Random Nonsense 3/5

It’s International Women’s Month so let’s watch the misogyny on social media (posted by out-of-touch meatsacs) reach new heights! And of course there will be many, many Reddit posts this month on how great men are, how cool this male celebrity is, how amazing the Ukrainian male soldiers fighting against Russian forces are, how awesome some Formula 1 male driver is, and how foolish some girl on social media or female movie/TV character is. Just check the first two pages of this every day and you know I’m not lying. (Spoiler alert: it’s like that every month.)

It’s also March and I’ve entered a blue period…

…with my nails, of course! I actually wanted a shimmery green polish for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day, but the salon I went to (aka my work, which has a nail place where I can get gel manicures for cheap) didn’t have such a polish. They did have this oh-so purdy sky blue polish, however, and that shimmah sold me.

Speaking of my hands, I think I may have found a cream that is the whip to tame the mad beast that is my shitty hand eczema: THIS! I have the O’Keefe’s version and it works fine, but Target’s version is nicer and cheaper! Here’s hoping for no more flare-ups and crocodile skin.

Thanks to the 31 greedy-ass, real-life Mr. Burnses aka the MLB commissioner and 30 owners of all 30 MLB teams, it looks like there won’t be any baseball for a while. All together now: BOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Greedy fucks with ugly mugs worthy of many bitchslaps, the whole lot of them.

Guess it’s gonna be another round of watching old baseball games (especially the ones where the Dodgers lose), the Baseball doc on PBS, that Simpsons Softball episode, and this gem that came from the 1994 lockout:

Another thing to BOOOO: the Dollar Tree. Or should I say, the $1.25 Tree. It doesn’t have the same ring to it, but why must my Nordstrom raise its prices?! Look, I’ve bought many things there, and I can assure you that they’re all truly worth a dollar. And have you seen the books and DVDs they sell there?! They’re worth less than lint.

***********

One thing not worthy of boos: thrift stores! I did some thrift store shopping yesterday. Yours truly has dropped a pant size since going low-carb and I needed some new clothes. Not a lot, though–I’m still not at the size I want to be just yet. While at this thrift store, I remembered I also needed some sporty shoes, since I’ve been doing a lot more walking & hiking lately. I found a like-new pair of Saucony’s for $10, and they feel just as good as Nike shoes (of which I’ve owned plenty of).

*************

Mask mandates have been dropped pretty much everywhere in my state and while some can cheer for things “returning to normal” *snort*, I see allergy season right around the corner, and as an allergy sufferer who still cannot with strangers since I don’t know if they’ve been vaccinated or not, well.

It’s one thing if makeup and skincare heads on social media hype up stuff like some overrated lip product to where it’s sold out in all Sephoras. But if they start to hype up First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Repair Cream or my new favorite cream for my hand eczema to where it’s all sold out for months everywhere, I. Will. RAISE. HELL!!!
