Life with 'song and Elayna 
5th-Apr-2010 03:22 pm
Me: "You have glitter on your head."
Elayna: "Yes."
Me: "For why?"
Elayna: "Because I felt like it."
Me: "A perfectly valid reason."
Elayna: "I used your Pixie Sparkle stuff."
Me: "I think that's yours."
Elayna: "Ah."

It's a communal-glitter household. We don't even know where the glitter comes from. It just appears in the bathroom and gets used. We have Pixie Sparkle, glitter eyeliner, glitter eyeshadow, glitter mascara, just random glitter for wherever, and glitter nail polish upstairs; in the downstairs bathroom, there are at least three Urban Decay glitter eyeliners (purple, green, and gold), plus Lush sparkle bath bombs. This is off the top of my head, you understand. There is more glitter lurking. There is always glitter on someone up in here.

The Urban Decay eyeliners, is it the liquid ones? I've been thinking about trying those next time I feel like dropping money at Sephora, which, the way I've been lately, will probably be soon.

Yep! They're good stuff.

I got one of their eyeshadow palettes recently and HOLY SHIT their eyeshadow and primer is seriously good stuff. And I'm realizing that even though everyone always says liquid liner is hard, I'm way better with it than I am with pencil eyeliner. So I may grab some of theirs next time. I always kind of hesitate to try on eye makeup at the store, you know? For some reason lipstick doesn't bother me but eyeliner, man, that feels sketchy.

The glitter eyeliner, in particular, has a clear base. So you really can't fuck it up.

So you're saying you're all Twilight-style "vampires"? :P

*ahem* NO.
5th-Apr-2010 07:39 pm (UTC) - fixed it for you
So you're saying you're all Twilight-style "vampires" lamepires?

Isn't that what they call raver scabies?

Or craft herpes.

Holey face?

I first heard that term a couple weeks ago... HI-larious!

My husband moonlights as a technical director and/or stage manager for dance troupes that come through Anchorage and then works at the Performing Arts Center full-time the rest of the time. He comes home covered in glitter for WEEKS... even after the dancers are long-gone.

He swears he hasn't touched any of the dancers and yet... ;-)

This is off the top of my head, you understand.

I thought it was on the top of Elayna's head?

It IS a bit unclear, you know, especially in a writer...

5th-Apr-2010 07:53 pm (UTC)
You know there exists not just glitter nailpolish, but HOLOGRAPHIC glitter nail polish, right? It is the most awesome thing ever.

Ahem. I may also be fond of glitter.

Best. Stuff. Ever.

I have a three-stage favorite nail polish that involves this opalescent white layer, and a holographic glitter layer in the same tone as the other, and I can't remember what the third is but they're in the same bag.

I want to come to your house. My husband and sons fail to understand my glitter needs.
5th-Apr-2010 08:26 pm (UTC)
Even yendi? How odd.

It floats around; he ends up with glitter whether he likes it or not.
5th-Apr-2010 08:28 pm (UTC)
Clearly, he needs to take more dodge skill when he goes up the next level...

Is even the cat safe? [although a sparklepuss would be kinda funny...]

Rule 43...there's always glitter.
Millions of years from now, there will be future civilisations wondering just where the hell did all this glitter come from?!

I ADORE Lush Sparkle Bath Bombs... genders bending in a neighborhood near you soon.

That reminds me of a story I read a long time ago in one of the gazillion "women's magazines" my grandmother subscribed to:

Woman is in a rush to get to her annual GYN exam. She grabs a washcloth from the bathroom to give herself a quick scrub "down there". The GYN says, "My, you didn't have to get all dressed up" or something (I'm a terrible story-teller). Woman is a bit confused until she gets home and her daughter asks, "Mom, have you seen my sparkles? They were in the washcloth in the bathroom."

Glitter is a wonderful thing. I want to come live at your house!
