The ones they make for sports recovery can be downright cute. Mine look like these, only they're light blue instead of pink:

you know you're overemotional when...

you cry because jim and pam are fighting these are fictional characters!! on a tv show that isn't even that good anymore!!! but i ended up crying (UGLY CRYING. not cute AT ALL) at the office and mumbling vaguely about how everything ends. like, if jim and pam can't make it, WHO CAN???

(yes i'm aware i am far too emotionally invested in this show but i can't help it!!!)

this thread is dangerous; I read the purse conversation and then ended up buying a purse at TJ Maxx!! but it's really cute and bright red and it was on sale, so it's all good.

I love that store. they always have nail polish for super cheap and cute shoes and purses. the only thing that annoys me is the term 'maxxinista'. I literally cannot think of anything I detest more than that conglomeration of syllables.

today i am very proud of the political party i have belonged to all my life.

not only have we choosen the first female Premier of our province (4 other provinces have been led by women in our country - aka similar to US state governors), but ours is the first openly gay leader of a provincial or federal government in this country.

I'm not gonna lie, when I first encountered them, they weirded me out a little bit... But I quickly grew to like them! Also, I enjoyed using the handy little bag opener thing. I don't know why. I don't think anyone needs me to mention that I'm weird in order for that sentence to make sense...

What the heck, milk comes in a bag!! That's awesome.

CE, I'm glad someone had luck at TJ Maxx!!

I'm currently browsing 3000 results on ebay of purses of a certain brand I'm interested in.

Mr. Spring said milk comes in bags for the Coast Guard too, but that's more food service type stuff for the galley on the ship so that's understandable.

even better. Thanks, spring. Now you don't have to take pictures for me, rou.

and now I feel like a dope because our school cafeteria sells milk in tiny little versions of those bags in the kid's lunches. I don't know why I didn't make the connection. I think they call them pouches? But the kids say the milk tastes like plastic. I don't know, I've never tried it.

Cool! But we've had 9 female premiers and one female prime minister throughout history (though Kim Campbell hardly counts as she was only the PM for 5 months, and didn't do much). We currently have 6 female premiers including Kathleen Wynne (Eva Aariak, Kathy Dunderdale, Alison Redford, Christy Clark, and Pauline Marois are the others currently serving as premiers).

Nice! I happened to mention to my sister that I wanted to buy a pair for work but had a hard time finding them in the store, so she picked these up for me from the scrubs store: 14317 - Black Compression Knee Highs/1 Pr.

I've already noticed a huge difference in my legs after a long day at work! However, I'd be lying if I said I haven't considered wearing these all the time. I have pretty bad circulation in my legs! I'm thinking I might need to try some heavier duty ones in the future, but we'll see.

I have compression leg warmer thingies from the sports store...I got em for Christmas for exercise, they're costly like 40 bucks...I NEVER THOUGHT TO WEAR THEM TO WORK. OMG GREATEST IDEA EVER.

i did say in 4 different provinces, not 4 female premiers, and Ontario has never been one before.

oh no....

it's got to be an indication of how much regard i held for the Mulroney administration (aka NONE) that i keep forgetting she was PM for that brief period until that party was reduced to 2 seats in Parliament!!!
