- So like, I don't get the point of eyeshadow base/primer. Can't you just use foundation? What's the difference? Make-up is so confusing. :\

- Relatedly, Aromaleigh final clearance sale. I am having a difficult time restraining myself from buying ALL THE EYESHADOWS, despite the fact that I rarely wear the stuff. T-they're so pretty and sparkly ;.;

I am so sad they're going out of business you guys, what am I going to do for foundation/concealer/powder when I run out of mine? (Fortunately that should be... years, given my rate of use and how much I picked up at the sale.)

- I have had two leaks in as many weeks. Plumber dude said the other day he was out in this neighborhood fixing a leak, and about as soon as he fixed the leak and left, another pipe on the other side of the SAME APARTMENT cracked open and started pouring water down the wall, so he had to come right back. Seriously, this is ridiculous.

Both of our recent leaks were slow leaks that had been going on a while without us noticing. The one last week had been dripping into the carpet, unnoticed, the carpet mildewing horribly, and when we went to move the bookcase sitting over the wet spot, this god-awful sewage-like smell burst out of it. Yeah. That screams healthy. As if I'm not sick enough already. :| And they didn't even cut out that square of carpet or anything. I don't even know what they did, but it doesn't stink anymore, although there's still a pink stain from the mildew.

- Recently watched:

First 2 eps of Lost Girl (on some Canadian channel, I don't remember) - Wonderfully cheesy and fun urban fantasy! But seriously, they had me at "the main character is a bisexual succubus." Can we please get some makeouts with the doctor lady? Please? PLEASE. I like the doctor lady better than the shapeshifter dude. MAKEOUTS PLSKTHX.

Sherlock (the recent BBC miniseries) - I had no idea this would be so entertaining or I would have watched it sooner. He's so MANIC and COMPLETELY BATSHIT. Possibly both the creepiest and most hilarious interpretation of Sherlock ever.

Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) has the oddest face. It's like someone squashed a very pretty face together with a somewhat homely, weird-looking face, and the end result is sort of confusing but fascinating. I wouldn't call him handsome, but I like looking at him.

Incidentally, dude playing Watson favors Dave's dad so much it freaks me out.

White Collar - it's not quite Leverage, but it's got some of Leverage's charm, and it's really entertaining. And wassname playing Neal is some very nice eyecandy. (Although his eyes freak me out! They're so WIDE and INTENSE and MANIC. They give me the feeling that he is about to start vibrating faster and faster until he EXPLODES.)

Also: Diana! I love her so much. When she disappeared after the first episode I was CRUSHED, you guys. Then when she came back for the S1 finale I was all :DDD!!! And then she stuck around for S2! GLEE. S2 ep2 was THE BEST.

But seriously, that cliffhanger at the end of the summer half? JFC, YOU GUYS. JFC.

Man. I haven't watched this much English-language stuff in a long time. WHERE ARE THE SUBTITLES? S-sob I am actually serious I keep missing so much of what they're saying. ;____;

I-I never got the point of eyeshadow base either. If anything the eyeshadow just rubs off FASTER if I use it. Jfc. :|

I get better results if I dust on a thin layer of alabaster foundation before I apply the shadow, but I don't get the need for a specialty primer or base (or what the hell the difference is between a primer and a base, for that matter). Isn't it about the same thing? I mean, sealant, sure, I get that (although dude, way too much trouble for me to bother), but why a special primer?

"the main character is a bisexual succubus."

We clearly have similar hooks, because cheesy urban fantasy had me slightly intrigued, but that premise is about to have me up and actively looking for it, hot damn.

Supposedly she's going to end up in a love triangle with the lady doctor and the shapeshifter dude. I WANT MORE LADY DOCTOR she's so awesome and adorably awkward. There's this great scene where Bo (the main character) turns on her seductive glamor magic to get the lady doctor to help her.

Lady doc: I know what you're doing.

Bo: So do you want me to stop?

Lady doc: No.

I'm going to go curl up in a corner and try not to sob now, because it sounds awesome but I am so SOL as far as watching it is concerned, it's not even funny. Not only is it on a channel I'm fairly certain I don't get, even if I did have it, it airs while I'm at Quire practice. I can't seem to find it streaming anywhere, either :(

Although - there does seem to be an LJ comm, and there's only fifteen public entries out of the supposed total of seventeen. It could just be there are illicit downloads to be found...

Oh, I just watched it on the... bittorrent channel. XD; Well, the first ep I grabbed from someone on my circle who was sharing it, as soon as she uttered the words "bisexual succubus," but after that, the usual suspects.

I might yet torrent it, but my paranoia's up since one of my roommates got a "So we see someone torrented the new Sherlock Holmes movie from this connection..." letter from our service provider ^^a DDL (and anime) I'm less worried about. Still, internet service is free at the library, and it won't be our IP address... *evil pirate-y plotting*

l-lol that happened to me recently with True Blood ;; V. paranoia inducing, yes. I feel it's less likely to happen with smaller budget things and international things, but I could be wrong. (Actually I don't even know if it's international for you, since I can't recall off the top of my head where you live...)

Hm, that seems plausible. Still, no reason I can't head to the library tomorrow, spend an hour or three there; I might even get something productive done while I wait. (I'm an Iowan, so yeah, international for me ^^v)

Okay, I don't do makeup at all (srsly, I fail way too hard at it to bother) but I *think* (and by think I mean I am talking out of my ass) primer or base crap is basically a foundation-y thing that was probably formulated for the skin around the eyes, so maybe less chemicals or somesuch? Idek.. can there really be 'gentle' makeup products for more sensitive skin? Media tells us so, but I have my doubts. My paranoia/question everything self feels it is probably just a way to sell more junk to unsuspecting people.

..."bisexual succubus"..
I think this is the first time I have regretted not having tv. ;_;

Well, I'm already using aromaleigh's foundation, which doesn't have any weirdo chemicals in it and has a pretty simple composition. I don't think it's possible to be much more gentle.

Hey, man, I don't have a TV either. Er, well, I do, but it's possessed and turns on and off by itself and we never really used it much anyway, and we don't have Canadian channels besides. XD; I just got it in the usual morally questionable fashion.
