Don't fucking tell me I'm not a true zero when your clothes are oversized. A woman with a 36 band is not a true zero. If your zeros are going to be that fucking big, carry 00s. Goddamn vanity sizing. I expected more from Anthropologie than that. Does Europe have this problem? Hell, many of them were French dresses.

Ok fine, one dress at Anthro fit sorta ok, but it was ecru, and I can't wear that to a wedding.

After five hours of shopping I now have a pretty black lace sheath with a gold lining (thank you White House Black Market) and dainty shoes...and a fever blister to go right along with it. It huuurts. And my dress is slightly dressier than I would have preferred, I wanted to find something that I could dress down in the daytime that didn't look like a boring J. Crew dress that cost $200 to look like everybody else.


Did I mention my lip hurts? And it doesn't look very pretty. Sad

Fever blister? Yuck. Sad Whenever I feel one coming on (my lip usually tingles the day before the sore actually comes up), I slather the spot in Vaseline before bed. Usually keeps it from cropping up. Smile Abreva sucks - has never worked for me. But the Vaseline thing is pretty reliable. Again, gotta catch the damn thing in time, but if you can manage to do that, you're gold. Yes

It started erupting early this morning at work. It's still getting bigger and has little blisters covering half of my lower lip. I haven't had one this bad in years. No

Campho-Phenique works really well and fast.

You are on the other side of the continent, but my wife had, as she says, "The worst breakout of Herpes of her entire life", recently. Fortunately, Abreva works for her, but it still lasted two weeks. She was miserable. Sad

Tyre?

Isn't that a city in Lebanon? You know, one of those places Yahweh supposedly had to smite back in the day?

Oh, so it's just more of that 'colour' and 'honour' malarkey from the other side of the pond?

My spelling is pretty bad though. And my tires were really expensive.

The 'jump back 15 seconds' button doesn't work when I'm watching a movie OnDemand.
