    Makeup VI : SPFantastic

    @Xray the Enforcer- I haven't tried Urban Decay lipsticks but @kairparavelrecommended Bite Beauty lipstick to me upthread and it is really lovely. Ordered it from Sephora. I'm suffering from dry skin even without being in Canadian Siberia, and can't spring for a facial right now. Any suggestions as to cheap skin rehydration? Drinking more water and getting more sleep & exercise would probably also help.
  2. Thanks for the updated thread, Ormond! I have a follow-up question to Baita's genealogical query, which maybe other people can help me with too. Ages ago I created a family tree on Geni and the site sends me notices of possible matches between my family tree and others, often based on names and similar dates/places. Sometimes the names will be a little different: is that more likely to happen because of inconsistent records or from family use of nicknames? eta: I love the name Eleanor and am glad it's back! Seeing The Lion in Winter on Saturday afternoon tv when I was young left me in awe of both queen and Kate Hepburn. Ormond, have you ever written about the name Mark and its variants? I searched the newspaper's site but couldn't find anything.

    Nope. I'm eyeing up Bite Beauty's Kale (dark hunter green with black) while trying to remember that I'm on a job hunt.
  5. Somebody assessed the situation in terms of penalty minutes and gave the Tories 2, Liberals 4 (Trudeau for two separate offenses), and the NDP 8. Sounds about right.

    Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance v. 3.0

    As the Peter Grant thread has been archived, can anyone tell me if the Night Witch comic is worth reading? It looks like a spin-off story from the few panels I've seen.

    Slug 'em back - Drinking Continues!

    Reviving your answer as I'm on a cocktail hunt: I like The Botanist with tonic. Not so much in a bigger mix, it gets overwhelmed.
  8. Warning: wonky train of thought begun while doing the crossword while tired.   I had a random idea about Harper and his support of Israel, which came up in the NYT article linked by FB. His unqualified support of Israeli policies (thinking about the settlers vs Palestinians) has parallels with his unwillingness to acknowledge the hardships of First Nations peoples: same principle, settlers vs colonized. It may be unconscious on his part, but it feels like empathy with the Palestinians/First Nations is a place where he really doesn't want to go. He may have a bunch of those, but that's all I got tonight. Except that the Conservatives were in third place in the most recent poll.

    [Book Spoilers] EP506 Discussion v. 2

    <mod note> Start a thread about Lost in the Entertainment section (or find an old one), if that's what you want to discuss. And learn to disagree politely or drop out of the thread. </mod note>

    A friend is interviewing GGK in a week or so and is looking for questions. Suggestions?

    Roughriders vs Bombers, maybe. Annual heartbreak on Labour Day weekend, unless that hits too close to home for GGK as a one-time Winnipegger. The occasional whim has to be indulged or there would be an epidemic of blue pencil across the board. I used to like GGK more than I do at the moment: a phase I'm going through, I think. There are bits that are always beautiful to read, though.

    Merged at my whim.

    A Compendium of Theories v.2

    Mod note: if you have a problem with another poster or want a post clarified, it is actually possible to send a PM directly to that person, ask politely to have the issue addressed and explain why. This may be a revolutionary concept, I know, but with practice it gets easier.
