Okay, I realize the cupcake thread was a little melodramatic. But the ultimate point is that things that *should* go smoothly rarely do for me. It’s frustrating, but it’s also kind of funny, once there’s a little distance.

Anyway, I forgot to mention something that’s been cracking me up for a while. I saw an eyebrow threading kiosk at the mall. Like, you can lean back in a chair, before all the faux-Goths and cat sweatshirt-wearing grandmas, and have some woman rip out your eyebrow hairs with thread. Thread that runs from her hands to her mouth. Ew.

There are just so many things wrong with this picture, but the main thing is that it’s in the middle of the mall.

Carry on.
