UCLA sent me an invitation to the Ceremony of Thanks which is to honor those who donated their bodies to the UCLA School of Medicine. I think it’s a really lovely thing. The part that destroyed me was, “honoring those who dedicated themselves to the betterment and healing of humanity.” Gah! I’m tearing up again typing it!
After seven years (SEVEN GOD DAMN YEARS) I finally have new glasses and I love them!
I bought them from Warby Parker. I could have found cheaper glasses on other sites but this company actually allows you to choose five frames, ships them to you for free so you can try them on, and then they pay the return postage. I mean, holy shit, that’s brilliant! Especially for someone with as massive a head as I have. I’m not kidding, the vast majority of glasses don’t fit my gigantic basketball head so this option was so beyond perfect.
And while I’m telling you about things I love…
Coconut oil! I was having serious issues with my skin and the cold and several people suggested I give it a try. Holy shit! I love that stuff and use it constantly; I’m at the bottom of my second jar. This from a girl who has NEVER finished a bottle of lotion. The coconut oil is, seriously, my salvation! I'm so soft that I love touching my skin. Also, even if I slather it on my face, I've never broken out. Also also, I use it to shave and the razor doesn't get gunked up. Another time I scooped up a lot, spread it through my hair, put on a shower cap, and let it condition my fried hair for hours. This shit is goddamn amazing! Clearly I need some sort of spokesperson job for this company!
So far this year I’ve been told by medical professionals that my cervix is perfect, my brain waves are great, and that I’m incredibly flexible. And 2013 isn’t even 1/2 over!
