    I think guys spend more time focusing on other features, like points.

    I keep mine short. Sometimes I put clear coat on them, but usually they're au natural.

    Well, changing the subject before I actually do get slapped . . .

    It's been a beautiful day here today. Almost too warm; currently 86.

    I have an ex sister-in-law who, um, kept a rather sloppy (see the show Hoarders for example) house. One year she brought a pie for Christmas dinner. We were always a little leary of eating things she brought, but my dad (the only one who never saw their house because he was a friggin' recluse) gave it a shot. He was about two bites in when he spit out an acrylic fingernail. After that, her dishes went untouched at family gatherings, which made me feel kind of sorry for her.

    (But not sorry enough to risk food poisoning.)

    (She was a rather nice person, though.)

    (Except for when she wasn't.)

    roasted asparagus topped with parmesan cheese and softly scrambled eggs. Sounds odd, but it's actually a fantastic combination.

    Warmed-up leftovers. Shephard pie is actually one of those things that may be better the second time!

    UGH. No more gross food stories.

    Fingernails: Mine are moderately long, scrupulously clean and neatly done with polish. My favorite is a french manicure. Ditto my toes.
    So there.

    I like long nails. I generally have the longest nails in my family. Except when one breaks - then they all get cut.

    And I have been known to wear black nail polish on occasion.

    I love the stranger colours, like green or blue or something, on a woman's nails.

    Though I'm not really a fan of acrylic nails. I prefer home-grown long ones.

    I like to have a short french manicure. I used to do my own nails. I bite them if I don't have fake ones... sigh... but it got to be too much. Now that I have room in the budget, I might go back to doing them again. I miss them.

    I'm having a very good frozen pepperoni pizza - it's the kind our store makes themselves, you just take it home and cook it. They put lots of herbs and spices.

    Things are feeling a little more homey. I know where the Walmart, the Lucky Store, and the Food Maxx is now. All on the way to work - which is great, as gas is so freaking expensive, I won't be making trips anywhere unless it's on the way to and from work!! I was not expecting how much gas I would need. Oh well.

    The last time I broke a nail, it was because of a kettle.

    Yeah. That's just how I roll.

    I like those!

    I have very white nail tips and very pink nail beds. If they're well buffed or I have a coat of clear on them, it almost looks like a french manicure. I'm so clumsy I'd just chip a manicure in the first ten minutes, anyway, so all in all I'm better leaving off the polish and going with ma nature.



    I'm still giggling at AC's idea of someone painting little pictures of Jesus on her nails. It's a scary thought. But I'm sure someone, somewhere has done it.

    Baked salmon, green beans, sourdough bread. NOM.

    (And my kids will only eat as much salmon as I force them too, so I get NOM for lunch tomorrow too.)

    P.S. Those Jesus nails are creepy.
