  1. The only time I've ever seen anybody use a special spatula or other item to scoop product is in a professional setting. Even my own sister, an esthetician, uses her clean fingers in her own products at home rather than wasting disposable scoops or having to wash/sterilize non-disposable ones.
  2. About 10 years ago, our microwave had died and I just didn't replace it. We got on just fine without it for several months until my parents came for a visit and decided that we "needed" a microwave, so they bought one "for the kids". I can't wait for the damn thing to die again! I rarely ever use it, but if I do need it, I have to clean the $@?!ing thing before I can use it. It will not be replaced again. It's easier to wash or toss in dishwasher, the pots and pans used for heating on the stove or in the oven. I'm tempted to toss it out some day when everyone is at school/work and claim t
  3. Thanks to this thread and link, along with these links: https://www.atsjournals.org/doi/full/10.1164/rccm.200202-138BC https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0306987705006328 shared in another thread, I hummed on my drive to and from the store today. 😁 Who knows if it actually does anything, (my drive was only about a minute, not an hour!), but it's easy to do, so why not! 🤷🏻‍♀️😁
  4. Diagnosis: Control freak A-hole on a power trip. Ridiculous. Egotistical. Dangerous.
  5. It sounds like a good set up for his quarantine. But, it does increase your dd's quarantine time. Forgive me, because I have trouble keeping all the numbers and rules straight, but I believe that she will have to quarantine for an additional 7-10 days after your son is considered not contagious, which is... X (7? 10? 🤷🏻‍♀️) days after he tested positive. A friend of mine has Covid go through her house. 2 adults and 2 kids got it. They are now considered recovered/non-contagious and back out in the world. BUT, the two kids who didn't get it... still in quarantine until April 22nd.
  6. There is a 7 day free trial on the app, I think.
  7. After 3 days, I'd go ahead and text again. She may have read the text and forgot to respond when she had a chance to check her calendar. Let her know that you are willing to go elsewhere. Hey Stylist, I texted on x date to make an appointment and haven't heard back yet. I would really like a haircut, so wanted to make sure you didn't miss the first text before I make an appointment elsewhere on Monday. It gives her the courtesy of a follow-up because mistakes happen and things get forgotten, and also gives her a deadline to respond without being confrontational. If you don
  8. Big, big hugs. I know it's easier said than done to not worry, but 1mm is such a small measurement that it could easily be within the margin of error for taking measurements that in this case, I will advise to try very hard not to worry unless and until you are told definitively that there is something worth worrying about.
  9. Good job sticking up for your family and your own sanity. I agree with others that you need to set a firm deadline in place. And remember that as an adult her mental and physical wellbeing is HER responsibility. You can support her in that pursuit if you want, but not to the detriment of your own physical and mental health.
  10. My current opinion may be colored by a certain MLM make-up company that has blown-up in my city/FB feed over the past 9-12 months. I can probably name at least 10 people that I personally know (in my city of 11,000ish people) who are on the bandwagon. So, that's a whole other topic, there. Regarding your second paragraph, what is wrong with appearing or being perceived to be "older"? This is where I perceive "the conversation" to be falling way short.
  11. Ok. I disagree with your opinions regarding his participation in the conversation. I apologize for my use of words. I can delete if you want, or leave as a notation of my own ability to sometimes be a jerk. In general, I'd love to overthrow the whole "beauty" industry. I think that the toll it takes on the human psyche to see air-brushed ideas of "beauty" and "perfection" is abhorrent, and is accelerating at an alarmingly terrifying pace each year. For women AND men. I am glad to see public figures like Bateman using their amplified voice to push back and create a conversation.
  12. You took a conversation about an aging public persona and aging women in general. and made it personally about Bill and how wrong he is. Nothing feminist about it. It was an unprovoked attack, aka: rabid.
  13. I believe that in this instance she did. Bill expressed an opinion. Melissa Louise went rabid on him for having an opinion because he is (apparently, in her opinion) of the wrong gender to have an opinion on women's looks 🤷🏻‍♀️
