I cannot say enough good things about Lisa/Cassie’s Skincare, (Yelp loves her too). She is very nice and obviously knowledgeable about skin care. She gives great advice for continued skin maintenance with natural remedies (based on your needs) and doesn’t try to sell you any products (which made the experience that much more relaxing). She also has monthly deals. Here is the link to her site,
Great work, that is gorgeous! Appreciate the step-by-step link too ‘cuz learnin’ new stuff is kewl.
Man, Edog, you nailed it again. That is what I wanted to add in my Stevie comment. Maybe we was gettin’ the sads ‘cuz we were confronted by our own decrepitation in the denouement of this life and of all of the innocence we lost since those guys were at their peak. When Metallica played One, I sorely noticed the absence of Jason Newstead but also fondly remembered him becoming my first long-haired metal-dude crush after seeing him head-bang in the video! If I head-bang that vigorously now, I am sore for two days afterward!
I get what Edog is saying though ‘cuz I am a HUGE Stevie fan. The absolute clarity and power of his beautiful voice on so many iconic songs, “Uptight”, “I Was Made to Love Her”, “Superstitious”, etc made it sorta sad to see his bright star dimming (as far as his singing is concerned).
Hahaha! Plasticbags, I very much enjoy reading your observations as well!
While Katy Perry is abnormally gorgeous, what was that hilariously bad, Nimbus 2000 humping, clearance-rack Halloween costume wearing, cheesy bit of sing/stripper-ing that was her performance? Silly indeed!
Yay for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and “Same Love”. Boo to Jay-Z for rapping “I’m Ike. Eat the cake, Anna Mae!” I sincerely hope that I heard that wrong or way out of context.
Great observation jj. Spot-on. Although “One” is my favorite Metallica song and I did think the addition of Lang Lang was a cool idea, (when he and Kirk fed off each other for a hot moment, it was smokin’), it seemed like addition of the piano and the decision to cut the song short severely killed its vibe!
RacerX-It may have been the irony involved in the bit of an overreaction detected in this thread’s Sherman topic hijack or maybe I just have an unhealthy obsession with Will Ferrel. Cheers to you and Chim-Chim.
ps…Anyone know why I can’t stop thinking of this? :)
Oldguybc, let’s just agree to disagree. As for my “crap” opinion, I judged the situation based on what I saw and what I heard; footage of the incident, Sherman’s subsequent interviews/tweets/posts, the interweb explosion of articles concerning the matter and its backstory, etc. I,sadly, am NOT privy to some secret Seahawks’ field-informant so I can only make up my mind based on the information I am given. I left emotion out of it. I am not defending Sherman because of some delusional, love-is-blind yearning for the guy. I like the Seahawks but if they didn’t win, my day would not have been radically affected.
I will say this, though, even IF Sherman was being a total jerk, Crabtree still comes off looking worse to me. There is never an excuse for intentional violence towards another player.
As for the classless person throwing things at an injured Bowman, pretty disgusting stuff. Is it Eagles’ fans or Browns’ fans that throw batteries at their own players when dissatisfied with them? The world is full of classless jerks, but it still doesn’t affect my opinion on the Crabtree/Sherman mess. In fact, Sherman denounced that person pretty harshly afterwards. I, however, am NOT Sherman’s G.D. morality lawyer so again, let’s just agree to disagree about the guy.
You go on an have a good day as well.
plasticbags- Thanks for the much needed laugh! Expectations, indeed!
Mrs. Wahoo- Can’t wait to watch!
Oh, I do think Sherman does know exactly what he is doing but there is no way to know if his sole intention was to needle Crabtree with the post-win “good game”, even if their history is used as evidence. (Yes, I have been told I am a bit naive. :)
Rudy +1! I think Sherman is hilariously entertaining. I like my football with a side of sass, (especially when it is retaliatory). Glad SEdholm brought up the charity event debacle. Who starts poop at a charity event?
Different take over here, my S.O. and I were kind of disappointed in Erin Andrews. He clearly wasn’t directing his anger at her and her flustered responses and terror-filled cowering were at best, a sign of woeful unpreparedness (you didn’t know the backstory or see any of the field interaction, ie, your job?) and at worst, kind of offensive. As a woman, the only NFL player I can currently think of that should evoke that sort of fear in women’s heart is Ben Roethlisberger (he of the numerous rape charges).
Oldguybc, I don’t want to start off on the wrong foot with you but Sherman’s choke gesture and subsequent rant to Erin Andrews, (if that IS the rant you were talking about because I did not see one by Lynch), were absolutely retaliatory actions (while admittedly not the most mature). Sherman attempted to tell Crabtree good game after the play (didn’t you see his butt tap and subsequent “I’m attempting to engage” movement towards Crabtree?) and Crabtree stiff-armed him away with a hand-push to the face mask! Talk about a classless gesture from an incredibly poor loser! Sherman was stunned! As was I!
One of the things that bothers me about this “Sherman is a thug” backlash I am seeing is that we congratulate the fierce passion and warrior-like play mentality that these guys show on the field and then we immediately stick a mic in their face, (in this case after a totally inappropriate dis by the opposing team), and expect him to be all Meryl Streep-ing it! I honestly don’t think he was intentionally being a jerk, I think he was flabbergasted by and still processing Crabtree’s stiff-arm to the face and he was mad! Again, it was not the most mature reaction but if we are talking classless and inappropriate, Crabtree is the guilty party there.
Don’t forget Lil Woody’s ronnyj! And Red Mill! And Dick’s! And King’s! Talk about over-saturating the market!
*edited to say- 5 Guys is the unnecessary addition. The other places I mentioned are awesome!
Gracie, I love your nosey neighbor story!
Man, some people are unbelievable!
And Ernie +1! I totally thought this was going to be one of those threads, in honor of the new forum, where everyone introduces themselves and I could read about their special talents. Cue the sad trombone.
Right on, Mrs. Whatsit. Hope Mr. Whatsit wasn’t too shaken up. (I know I would be!)
Have to agree with everyone here. I have seen quite a few terrifyingly close calls involving reckless, careless drivers and also involving clueless pedestrians.
Halloween, corner of Market and Leary, saw a young girl driver almost plow into a HUGE group of trick-or-treaters & guardians stepping into the crosswalk, in total daylight, whilst they had the walk sign. I’m talking like 25+ people and she didn’t even slow down. Talk about your Halloween frights!
The aforementioned pedestrians & Mr. Whatsit were faultless, but it does show that when not wreathed in a hulking mound of metal, you have GOT to be the one on constant alert. In my walks, I have noticed that an alarming amount of pedestrians here can be a bit lax in their alertness. (Dude, must you stare at your Iphone while walking through acrosswalk? Methinks NO). My theory is that Seattle’s respect for pedestrians and bikers breeds a sense of false security, (maybe?). (Where I come from on the east coast, it is a more hostile environment, especially for bikers).
With all of the development slated for Ballard, sadly, it doesn’t seem like this is going to get any better.
Although the FB link does kind of freak me out if I over (slippery-slope) think about it. You never know what’s going to set someone off. One person’s innocuous restaurant review is another man’s Helter Skelter, amirite? ;)
Testing. Testing. One, two, sibilance. Hiya everybody! Glad to finally be a confirmed member of the forum!
