thirst quencher

I've been on the look out for this lime cucumber flavor of Gatorade. It is delicious.

this is the voice

 We decided to watch the reality television show The Voice by projecting it onto a screen in the living room. The season starts with the judges listening to contestants with their backs turned. If they like what they hear they press their button and get to see the person. If more than one judge turns around, the contestant chooses which judge they want as their mentor.
 We started with two watching and then a crowd formed and started to play along. Players turn their back to the screen and can only watch if they like what they hear.

Sometimes they play a back story so you can root for the contestant. These two wanted to know nothing about the singers.
 The show is worth watching if nothing else because of the after interviews with Cee Lo where last year he held a cat in his lap like some kind of villain and this year talks to a bird. Awesome.
This guy is my favorite. He likes like a Muppet and sounds like Bill Withers. This fills my heart with pure joy.

snake skin nails

Awhile ago I saw a news story about how nail salons have been giving actual snakeskin manicures. I thought this was pretty badass, though I cannot afford it. So I bought these Sally Hansen nail decals. They look good, are super easy and no animal product is used. It is not quite as cool as real snakeskin but I will take what I can get.

retail boner

A  currently have been schlepping a purse with a twice broken strap. The other day I made the mistake of shopping in the fancy section of Nordstrom and touched this $3,000+ Prada bag. Suddenly my world shattered. I had no idea what crap I have been using to carry my things around. I didn't know things could feel/look so nice.  I know it is ridiculous to pay this much for a bag, but I can't help but lust for such niceties.  The Prada saleswoman complimented my ladylike taste in bags. I told her that I needed to get out of there quick.
