I would do Ten on Tuesday - but I don't have much to say about the zoo

Last week I did the Ten on Tuesday posted by Kyria from here. Normally I would do it again this week, but it's all about the zoo, and seeing as how I haven't been there in years. I'm going to do something I stole from here, because I have nothing better to do.

Some business cards. A post it from a friend that says "Karen - Today, on this 3rd day of Hannukah, I leave you three dum-dums. Yours in Noshing, Anne and Hannukah Armidillo (AKA, Mario)" - yes Armadillo was spelt wrong, but I love them anyway.

thanks for visiting my blog. A lot of places do charge too much for acrylic nails and designs... most of the time its just airbrush designs anyways. But Le and his wife Kelly have been great friends from the beginning and they only charge me $20 for a new set and $25 if I get designs. They don't charge me for fill ins, if one breaks or anything like that.

Maxwell said...

I'm famous! Hooray! Glad you're finding my ramblings amusing...

And I'm still really jealous about that dinner at City Island. Damn you.

KG said...

Yes Maxwell, you are famous...to the 23 people besides you that read my blog.

Come to NYC, we'll eat good food. I just had another delicious lunch in fact. Probably would've been better with company.

@Tiffany - that's a great price! Acrylics here are probably about $25 (done poorly) and then you have to pay per design. They do the two ring fingers for free generally, but the rest cost a lot. Also, their skills just aren't all that great. I want to find someone who loves doing nails and creative designs, and not just some Asian that does it for a paycheck and can't understand what I'm asking for. I can't even explain to you the hassle my mother goes through when she wants her designs mirroring each other as opposed to exactly the same (going the same direction) on both hands or feet. Sigh.

Monica said...

This is fun! I thought about doing it too but I just don't know. We are going to have to talk about this streaming movies business, I need this in my life.

KG said...

Seriously Mo, remind me to send you the link when I get home. It's a pretty great site! Kind of like a database for all of the streaming sites with the quality of the video they have.
