I'll take a stun gun in leopard print, pretty please. Ha! That is pretty funny.

I love Pampered Chef. I can not afford it, but I love it. Same goes for Passion Parties. I have been to one that involved several batches of daiquiris and margaritas. I ended up spending $200 on 3 things.

They are all a trap!!

How is there such a line at Modern Pastry the day after TG? Restaurants I get since people aren't ready to start on the leftovers right away, but pastry shops?'

Some of the smaller cheaper things from Pampered Chef are my favorite in my kitchen, although they were all given to me second hand and I've never been to one of the parties.

I know there are lingerie parties too. Is there anything us ladies won't have a party to peddle? I don't know, I really don't want to pick out a vibrator in front of my close friends or even strangers, but I'm a stick in the mud when it comes to that sorta thing.

I have never been to a PC party but I know a few people who sell it, and I have been given some gifts for christmas that came out of the catalog.

I did not know if I would like the PP or not, but it was so much fun. Two of my good friends hosted it, there were close to 20 trashed women, and we laughed hysterically at everything they showed us. The Rabbit.. We died. When it came time to order she did that privately, in a different room, so it was not bad at all. At that point I didn't care if I placed my order in front of God, but that was a nice touch.

Get a few drinks in me and I'd probably be dancing on the table flailing the products around in the air "Buy one of theeeeeese!!".

This is why I stay home.

-I keep getting all these emails with exclamation points and it's making me anxious and feel like I should be out shopping.

50% off!!
Sweaters $8!!
Everything half off!!

Haha. One of my co workers drove me crazy right after I came here for hair help. She kept asking what I put in my hair, over and over. I would tell her leave in and gel and she would not believe me, and she is a licensed cosmetologist with some curl in her hair. Wth? I even explained that I had used nothing but mousse for years and years but recently switched to gel, to avoid alcohol and propellants, and it made my clumps smaller and more defined but nothing. She couldn't get hers exactly like mine so therefore I was withholding miracle in a bottle information.
Tell her you get your secret products at the grocery store. In the fish market department. You wrap your hair each night in day old sardines and have fabulous curls in the morning that you set with mayo. Not hair mayo but Helman's. Offer to help her set her hair.

Do the vibes have the same lifetime guarantee as Tupperware?

I think it would be totally embarrassing to go to a sex toy party. Lingerie? No no. I'd rather have a new pair of shoes. Shoes make everything look better.

Breaking Dawn 2 was worth the 6 dollars. Hilarious and awesome ending. Totally unexpected.

(Obviously I didn't read the books.)

Speck, if I told her that, she would do it in a second. hehehe.
And they should come with a lifetime warranty, but sadly, they do not.

Springy, some people were dancing on tables and we were all ears when people who were familiar with the products said, "My husband/boyfriend loves this stuff". What stuff?
Ooh, the men folk would like that, wouldn't they?

I am not one who embarrasses easily, at all. My mom took me to a wedding shower when I was 12 or 13 that was very adult oriented. Her co workers walked in and found me trying to prop up the falling penis cake with tooth picks. Expressions on their faces = Priceless. Anyway, I was still a little iffy about passion parties, for a few reasons, but it is all in good fun.

This lack of transfers when going from train to bus is really ****ing annoying. That should be a transfer, not a charge!

Sex toy parties can be a blast with the right crowd. My favorite parties are still Pampered Chef tho. Like springy, some of the favorite things in my kitchen are from them. The big microwave rice cooker is my very favorite. And I've probably bought everyone in the universe the Easy Opener. Love that thing!

I was near Fenway, so I went to La Verdad, and it just made the hate I feel for this industry rise up again. I contemplated how here is a white guy charging way more for Mexican street food than any typical taqueria. If an actual Mexican-owned restaurant tried to charge the same for tacos, there would be revolt, just as people will balk about "expensive for being Chinese/Vietnamese/whatever cuisine eaten mainly by people who aren't white". The cooks were Latin and at one point the sous chef walked in ---- a white guy, of ****ing course.
I think of the number of white people who wouldn't step into a taqueria run by Mexicans, or who constantly talk about how "dirty" Chinese restaurants are, but the moment a white guy takes on said cuisine it's suddenly "accessible". Goddamn, **** this ****.

Also, there's a reason tacos tend to be made with two tortillas --- single tortillas get soggy. Now, whenever we did taco specials at restaurants I worked with, with a mainly white (and often English to top it off) crowd, we'd do the two tortillas, and without fail, after getting over the surprise that tacos are served on soft corn --- not flour--- tortillas, the plates would always come back with three tortillas, because nobody got the concept that each taco was two tortillas.
But if you're trying to be a taqueria, put two ****ing corn tortillas on your pricey-ass tacos as it's supposed to be so I don't end up with a soggy, falling-apart mess.

Awww, don't panic. Presents are not what Christmas is about. The stress and panic of buying the right present is what takes the joy from it. I don't buy until almost right before Christmas. I go shopping on the off hours when the stores are not overloaded with people. Either early in the morning (not 4am) or late at night (not 12am) or shop online and have everything delivered to the door. Take a deep breath, go and treat yourself to a coffee and doughnut, and make a list of things you want to buy. Separate it into things you can buy locally and online. See? You've got it half way done! Then decide what you can buy now or wait until next month.
SIB I am right there with you.

And Speckla, your advice here is very wise. I try to do the same as much as I can to ease the stress of it all.

This line is completely ridiculous to begin with (and it's been like this all day since I've walked past it at various times today), but it's especially ridiculous considering that the pizza is just slightly above average in quality.
