Thank God for Steel Tec

...Who realize that a lady can't hold an object that is pointy on one end unless it is pink one the other.

Seriously, this is just a pink tool set.  Men and women can both use it.  But I seriously doubt many people, male or female, give a damn whether their pliers match their decorating scheme.

Or is it also "ladified" is in other ways and not just color? The catalog offers no "gentleman's tool kit" against which to compare it.


So I got some of this anti-wrinkle stuff for free through BzzAgent.  Basically this is meant to deal to the developing crows feet.

I am shallow enough to fall for this type of thing so I am giving it a go.  And, hey, it was free.

So, okay.  It is meant to take 4-8 weeks to see an effect. Here were are at two weeks so perhaps it is not surprising that nothing has happened yet.

2 Weeks
I can attest to the fact that this stuff stings like a bitch when you get it in your eyes. Hopefully all the astounding science-y chemicals meant to be in it don't cause eye cancer.

A perfume inspired by a bra, FFS

A fragrance inspired by a garment inspired by boobs.
Apparently that means smelling of flowers and wood.

Even in death...

...women tend to be treated as accessories to the main event.

"Three members of a UK family - named as Saad al-Hilli, 50, from Surrey, his wife and mother-in-law - were shot dead near Lake Annecy on Wednesday" [BBC]

Notice how the dead people are a named person (male) and unnamed female identified by her relationship to the man, and another unnamed female identified by her relationship to the man.

Would it not be just as accurate and somewhat easier to say:

"Three members of a UK family - named as Iqbal al-Hilli,  from Surrey, her husband and mother - were shot dead near Lake Annecy on Wednesday"

But that never happens, does it?
