I'm convinced my husband does this to get out of grocery shopping. Always buys dumb crap and always spends too much.

wow, I've been here 10 years this month.

I now almost never wear my hair curly. I haven't for years. I still love curly hair, I just don't love mine.

I am no RCW, but I do have much thicker internet skin than I did a decade ago, and I think it's ridiculous that people take things personally on a freakin' message board based on the commonality of hair. Recent troll monitoring thread, I'm looking at you.

The curlies can be snarky, petty, immature jerkfaces, but the curlies can also be wise, supportive, and sensitive - I'd like to see what the curlies could do if they harness their powers for good, like the Tomato Nation and the Donor's Choose fundraising drive.

Here's to another 10 years of watching threads blow up, and wondering who will fan the ashes till lockdown. Another ten years of cute animal pictures, etiquette advice, dating woes, childhood traumas, family issues, and news of the weird.

Maybe I'll start wearing my hair curly again.

Well, western PA is sort of known for it's zombies. But I'm not at all embarrassed by it. I don't think we're big on ginger beer here tho. But I make some mean sassafras tea. Dig my own roots, dry them, cook them up. Damn, that stuff has a kick. I'm having some right now.

My friend and I were sitting around tonight, watching AKA heckling Jurassic Park 1 and 3 on TV (I don't know why they skipped to the third one), and had a grand old time... However, when I was driving home, it was really foggy and I kept waiting for there to be a dinosaur out in the middle of the road. Or one sitting in my backseat when I glanced in the rearview mirror.

You know you've been watching Jurassic Park for too long when...

So, I was dicing jalapeños earlier tonight, and though I've washed my hands a few times since then, I clearly still have the oils from them on my hands. I was flossing and now my tongue and lips burn.

I think zombies are taking over without even being real (yet).

Zombie talk here.

In the gun store today DH requested some sort of zombie bullet.

Zombie tv shows that are super popular.

Zombie themed bedding.

I got a 2012 weekly planner, a small fan brush and a brown fine line pen from Michael's for 30 cents today, thanks to a $5 off $5-before-tax coupon. I was going to get the fan brush and a couple of pendants to use as earrings, but then the line was so long that I got a good long look at them and decided I didn't want them, so I grabbed the other things on the way to the cash register. I've never had a brown pen before!

I did that last week while making chile verde. I definitely looked like an idiot soaking my hand in a bowl of milk. It helped but not completely. I must remember to wear gloves next time.

My hands aren't burning at all since I didn't do that many (just shy of one quart) and probably because I built up decent resistance after that one time I did two quarts and burned for hours after. I take off the gloves because they get in the way when I'm trying to do such a fine dice.

If you ever are fighting a zombie, you must remember to double tap.

Always, double tap.

We're too divided for the collective good to happen. But if you think it's possible, why not kick it off?

Why, I'm honored. But only if Saria brings the crack, I mean sugar

This was a burning I had never experienced before. It was really intense for hours. I guess it was just a stronger batch than I usually get. My pico de gallo was more spicy than usual too.

I once cut scotch bonnet peppers with my bare hands and then forgot and let the baby suck my fingers... yikes.

My fingers start burning just thinking about a scotch bonnet.

I can't handle any sort of heat so I guess my tongue pretty much saves me from any jalapeno cutting trauma.
