See, I was afraid to use a comb with it because I thought it wouldnt clump like I like. I usually dont even rake my hair too much because the curls look like a bunch of skinny spirals, I like a bunch of fat spirals (if that makes any sence) nevertheless, I will try combing it through and see what happens, Thank you

How is it that I got to be too old to be able to hold down four drinks? I was completely hungover today and had to miss my curlie meetup. Dang.

Ugh this stupid anxiety comes in waves. How is it that I can be sitting here cruising the internet, and suddenly get that feeling...hard to breath, the "oh no, what's wrong...something can't happen to me while I'm home alone" thoughts. Sometimes I dont' even see it coming, it just hits. Ugh!

Thanks Saria, I tried Ouidad, it was nice for my hair but it won't be nice for my pockets in the long run.

Though it's very uncommonly used here in the US -- I'm middle-aged and have never ever heard someone use "smelt" in that way -- I will be over here in the corner choking down my crow, with a side of the egg on my face.

I live close to a steel mill. Smelt has a whole different meaning to me, lol.

Oh, and fish. I know of the fish kind of smelt.

Ha ha ha ha. I was having a Convo with a friend once (he's American) and I was smelled? Smelt? And he had no idea. I always thought smelled was American and smelt was British, but it's not.

I have zero motivation to exercise today.

Other than the fact that my pants are way too tight...

I have a few today:

1) Its a changing room not a social club. Get changed and get out.

2) I'm all for cutting down on unnecessary electricity use but the supermarket took the piss today. Shopping in the dark is not easy. I struggled to find the ginger nut biscuits.

That new Flower Pepper is interesting. I like it. The chocolate/sugar/coffee grinder jar is neat too.

Ha ha ha ha. I was having a Convo with a friend once (he's American) and I was smelled? Smelt? And he had no idea. I always thought smelled was American and smelt was British, but it's not.
A few of the online dictionaries I researched stated either "Brit" or "UK" for smelt used in that way. I've NEVER heard an American use "smelt" as a form of "smelled." My Brit friend, however, has used it on occasion, especially after relocating back to the UK after growing up here in the US for the most part. Her speech had become ~98% Americanized, but she has recovered her British roots nicely since moving back there a few years ago, throwing in colloquialisms like "knackered" and "bloody" quite easily and frequently.

Thanks for saving me from possibly making a fool out of myself IRL by "correcting" someone!

Forgot to set the alarm last night - woke up at 10 minutes to 8. Made it to work by 8:20. I feel like a hot mess!

and I forgot my slip! eeek! at least 1. I'm wearing white (not plaid or polka dot) underwear, and 2. this skirt is lined. I still feel a little exposed.

We use smelt in Australia too. Also learnt, spelt, dreamt, burnt, spilt, and spoilt. Although I think some of those may be used in the States too.
