I like Lisa Eldridge for actually no makeup looks, but honestly like try to start with people who have your daughter’s same skin tone and winnow down to good people from there. It’ll make the product recs less intimidating since she won’t as much have to think about if they work for her. Read more

The Australian fire thing is so analogous to what Sergio on project runway pulled - children in cages to save his design - and PR/fashion has so many of the same problems. Very very white man dominated, some white women & handful of POC. And like you can see it playing out on Project Runway where the aesthetic Read more

Without the velcro that honestly sounds like adult incontinence underpads, which are what hospitals & nursing homes use instead of/in addition to diapers.

Eww & she sounds exhuasting but also not close enough where it’s worth calling her out on it. :/ Read more

Sleepy, so sleepy-conference is over. One presentation went fine, the one that funded my travel kinda not as much. Mix of I waited too late to start it, got stuck helping on lots of other things at conference, & the tech imploded on me day of-but friend who’s name was also on the tutorial helped me out & we presented Read more

Nah, you sound like you have good boundaries which is a thing I have to learn. I'm just proud of myself for not taking their latest bait and really leaving it to be my advisors problem. Thanks for being a sounding board!

Yeah I’m at that point and have told my advisor I’m there. Like was thinking about it & labmate basically is treating me like a code monkey, which is an argument we had way back when they first joined the lab. & it’s like no, been doing the science for a long time now & going to have opinions on it.

Yup, and like labmate flipped their lid at me tonight cause I had the gall to say they needed sign off from co-authors on a thing they were going to present. Apparently it’s only “working together” when I’m not asking stuff of labmate.

With labmate it’s even worse cause they’re irked that I’m not passionate about THEIR work - which like yeah, not my project, only here as a favor/senior lab student/no I don’t want to become colloborator on it ‘cause I’m overcommitted as is.

My labmate keeps lecturing me on professionalism even though far as I know like they’re not any more qualified than I am to give anyone advice on it. Plus yesterday it was a lecture about looking on my phone when I’m “working with them” and I’m putting that in air quotes ‘cause like the lab is going to a conference Read more

Haven’t but also watched the movie and loved it and like yeah one of Miranda’s monologues was basically an evisceration of “I’m too cool for this”. I have a high tolerance for not amazingly written books, so will check it out. Thanks!

Can you reach out to the GF directly and explain the situation? Unless she’s awful and that’s why they broke up, she’d probably want to get it back to you ‘specially if you make it easy. With the friend, just ask if she’s finished the book you lent her - that's what my friend does with her books.

I’m in desperate need of recs for books where the femme female characters aren’t stupid or evil. Gone through a couple not worth rec’ing where the “I’m not like THOSE girls” is strong. I’d particularly love one where the lead is super fluflly frilly girly, but that’s probably a tall order. (And yes CRA and Kinsella Read more

My latest go-to is Uniqlo, which while mass market and not rockish is mostly minimal and lots of natural fabrics so you can build up a good base.

Can't remember w/ the kosher equivalent but will totally be on the lookout next time I buy something like it. Thanks!

I will go to the ends of the earth for Joy, which is only stocked in (some) grocery stores and not Target.

Eek, I feel you on the ever present ingredient that sets you off. I think mine might be citric acid or similar, which is also in all the things.

Ok, so I’m definitely a brand loyalty person, and I think it’s a why mess with what mostly works attitude. Like I’ve been buying Thinkpad branded laptops for almost 20 years, even one or two from when Lenovo first took over the brand and they were terrible (I think reviews convinced me to give it another shot).
