i saw Nicole Curtis, the woman on the Rehab Addict show do this in the historic home she renovated. she used a TINY brush to paint small individual tiles in a bathroom.

if you email her through her website or HGtv, i bet she'd let you know what she used.

I read it since you mentioned it was in the area. Now I'm so sad! And I still don't know what town it was in!

I can't believe all the comments blaming the owners.

w_s, the silent protest would be about Sherlock losing out for every award it was nominated. A number of the fans are taking this very hard.

FFS, it's about the show being nominated for awards and just not winning any?? I can get being annoyed if you think your show deserved to win all the things but writing about it with "let's write on our wrists and be silent as might be done to show support for the unjustly imprisoned" gravity? These people make my head hurt. It must be so embarrassing for the show's creators if/when they see such declarations made.

I've had these babies on my Saved for Later list forever, and now they're down from $225 to $96 and I want to pull the trigger so badly. But I won't. I can't. I really don't need pumps (well, ever, but I like being shoe-prepared).

Amazon.com: Charles Jourdan Collection Women's Elton Platform Pump: Shoes

Ugh, why must be they be so beautiful?!

These are also down a lot from their original price and I may well get them since they're sandals and therefore more likely to be worn:

Amazon.com: Ash Women's Lips Sandal: Shoes

I bought 'em. Though maybe I should have gotten them in black rather than the red/orange.

Thankfully many people responded with the appropriately disdainful and hilarious pics and gifs to that particular post.

But then, I just read a post where someone called Korra "an effin' slut" and that she should have been hooked up with someone else because he's a nice guy who deserved her more.
So, the Korra fandom may still be the worst ever (though the Sherlock fandom is pretty damn bad and so is Supernatural's).

Dead and risen and I'm still SMH. My eyes seriously did go wide when I read that. Like, I know people suck and you have told me that this fandom by and large is made of suck, and I know how much people love calling real and fictional women sluts and acting like they're sex vending machines doled out to the "deserving," but I guess because they're fans of a show made by people I know are actually really cool, they can still shock me by being so decidedly uncool.

LOL, they want Korra, a character they obviously can't stand with their golden boy. U no make no sense, fandom.
At best they treat her like a prize. At worst there's posts like one where some douchebag said that perhaps next season they can change things in the (romantic) story, but that frankly, Korra has a long way to go and a lot to do to be able to deserve and "be worthy" of this guy. For real, Korra has to prove she's worthy of this guy after she had the nerve to not be interested in him. Said character is a genuine nice guy. So, really, fandom Nice Guys need to back the **** off and stop identifying with him, because they have nothing in common.

Thanks, it's my favorite, too.

So many shoes wishlisted, so lacking in a bottomless bank account. Sigh.

~What Rou said, those are going to be awesome on you. Adorable.

~How come my body won't me sleep 5 little ole' hours uninterrupted by FOUR bathroom visits?!? I just wanted some sleep, instead I was tossing, turning, and peeing every hour. Why does my body betray me so much with so many different things? I'm trying to treat you right. *sips coffee*

~I'm having a hearing test today before I see an ENT for some ear issues. I haven't had a hearing test since I was a kid, but I still remember thinking "Did I really hear that beep...should I push the button..." Ghost beeps!

The director for my department no longer works here, the supervisor is on her honeymoon, four people are out (two were scheduled out, one called out, the fourth person I never heard from) and I just got an email from some director in another department asking for a report that I have no clue how to do or even how to respond. I am the only contact in the department which is why I got that email. The supervisor will be out until 10/3.

I'm not looking forward to the next 10 days. I may resign by the time the supervisor returns.

Awkward ending to wedding last night. The whole family started screaming at each other and the bride was locked in a room crying and wouldn't come out.

I hate that when you are here I still can't get anything done.

I started to do stuff the way you suggested. Sorry I am not going fast enough for you.

How many times do I have to tell you not to wash clothes and run the dishwasher at the same time?

I had things cleared and you put stuff there. Why do you do that?

Why do you not understand if you fill the sink with dishes it is no longer usable?

Um, girls, I'm sorry but I think the dish thing was me. I always pile all my plates (after rinsing them) into the sink. My husband comes along and complains so I yell, "Wash them."

Does that not drive you insane? That's why I like my kitchen to be empty when I am cooking. My husband was trying to help me today. I'd move something somewhere and he'd move it. I'd go to reach for it and it'd be gone. Where's the milk? In the 'fridge. Why? So it won't go bad. *face palm* It's more efficient to leave everything out until I am done and than put it away. Butter or milk will not go bad in 10-15 minutes.
I don't know whether to feed him or murder him!
Speckla, my husband does the same thing. I put things out to get to room temp, go to use them and they are gone. Back in the fridge, cold and/or hard.

I am having to make a conscious effort to NOT speak my mind today. My boss is driving me insane and I must learn to just say "yes" and "no" and not offer insight, opinion, or heaven-forbid a differing viewpoint or better approach. The mess he is in the middle of is something that's been brewing for years and I've been asking for years to fix - and been told it's unfixable... now he's being told to fix it - and I must keep my mouth shut (or we'll end up in a loud verbal disagreement like the one we had last week).

I must keep my mouth shut, I must keep my mouth shut.

It's okay if he falls on his face on this - it's not like he didn't have warning.

I must keep my mouth shut.

ETA: I freely admit that sometimes I suffer from "know-it-all-itis" or "my-way-is-the-best-way thinking" - but really.... he doesn't know what the heck he's doing!

Kick to the 'nads in 3-2-1...
Oh, nynaeve...where else would he put his drysuit? The bed is the perfect spot for it to dry. It's not like you want a dry bed to sleep in, right? Clothes, what clothes? Bet he didn't even notice them.
