Okaaaay, Seeing As How Life Went 'Splodey There For A Few Days...

I have a ton to catch up on. The chapter, however, is nearly done. Maybe another 200 words and it's off to saavikam77 .  I think I may put up a second spoiler today since we're so close.

First, before I go into the usual, it truly does suck to wander into beauty tutorials on YT, fall in love, and know they're done in another country where the items are not available in the US. *cries* You guys of the British persuasion don't know how lucky you are in the case of organics. I've seen more awesome (and reasonably priced) stuff on OxfordJasmine's channel than I've seen here. And some of it's even drugstore! GAH! I mean, WHY can't we have a Spiezia here? Or an Original Source? *whimpers*

And let's not even get me started on the MAC Love Lace line. It's totally perfect for me and the price is killing me. I'm going to cruise Ebay a little and see if I can get lucky, price-wise.

Yeah, yeah, I know. Shut up about the girly stuff, Lo. BUT I CAN'T HELP IT! I miss being pretty. *grumps* At least I have my cherished Lush and the renovation is almost over at the Orlando store! God, I'm out of everything but my soaps. *whine*

*heavy sigh* Now that my girly bitch-fit is over, I have three days worth of meme to do and it follows below:

Day 3 ~ Favorite Musician
Day 4 ~ Favorite Album
Day 5 ~ Favorite Book

Favorite Musician ~ Yet again, two answers. Yep, I cannot be expected to narrow it down that far. One was from the mid-90s, one is current. It may be a stereotype, but they are Canada's Mandalay and our own 30 Seconds to Mars. I have a ton of bands I love madly, but these are the two that I keep coming back to.

Favorite Album ~ GAH! Now there's a difficult one! So many of them... But I think my all-time favorite is Depeche Mode's Ultra (DO NOT JUDGE ME! XD). I found it at a time in my life that every track was perfect. Currently, though? 30 Seconds to Mars' This Is War.

Favorite Book ~ *whine* Okay, then. Colleen McCullough's The Thorn Birds.  This book has everything perfect for me: love, angst, star-crossed lovers, war, family history, good, evil... I first saw it when I was a child as a film, but even the film doesn't do it justice. McCullough is so talented a storyteller, you can see every moment as clearly as if you were standing next to Meggie Cleary the whole time. LOVE IT!
