I'm definitely Team Pumpkin Spice.

This is one of my fave masks by Peter Thomas Roth. It smells like pumpkin spice. You'll want to eat it, seriously. Except don't - it does fucking awesome stuff for your skin. :)

Topic Plagiarism alert
Posted 18 Aug 2016 06:33

From what I understand the stories can't be copied in standard viewing format. Is that correct?
I had assumed if they are being copied this must be due to the pdf accessibility, yes?

If this is so, is it an option for the view as pdf option to be OPT IN rather than opt out (as is currently).
(perhaps this needs to go in the suggestion thread, yes)

Do you think this would have any effect on how frequently and easily material is copied?
Those authors that opt in to have pdf accessibility may then be more aware / acknowledging increased copying potential.
I don't know, just a thought.

No, they use a scraping technique. They don't go through the PDF accessibility. I've been opted out of PDF since it was first offered, and my stories still regularly show up all over the place.

I don't know the technical ins and outs of scraping, but it definitely isn't affected by the PDF option.

The first teaser for Season 7 is out, with the full trailer due out later today/tomorrow.

If anyone is jonesing for the big spoiler to last season's cliffhanger, you can go to The Spoiling Dead Fans facebook page (look for their July 16th post). Apparently they have a great track record and have been correct with their spoilers 95% of the time. They have an entire website dedicated to real-life stalking of the filming locations/sets and actors - enough so that AMC threatens to sue them on the regular.

Please don't post spoilers in this thread. Theories and predictions are fine though.

But if you can't wait until October, you can go peek. Embarassed

Is 'Walla' or 'Wallah' considered legit American English now? I've noticed people saying and writing it more and more often and it makes me cringe. Voila is not difficult to pronounce. I'm not sure why this word has now morphed into 'wallah!' in the mainstream. sad1

Topic Do men want women to shave their face?
Posted 10 Jun 2016 02:47

Unshaven legs and pits? I don't prefer them, but I don't hate them either. Hygiene is far more important, and that doesn't depend on hair removal, but on water and where appropriate, soap. As for pubes, I don't find genitals that look like those of my 7 year old daughter very appealing. I'd rather see some pubes, as a sign of sexual maturity. And that peach down is part of what gives a woman's skin that soft feminine look plus it makes a caress possible, that is softer than any hairless skin allows. So to answer the OP's question: If a lady has a moustache she doesn't want, by all means shave it. But please leave that peach fuzz where it belongs, I love it.

Maybe it's a generational or cultural thing. When I see a guy or girl that has shaved or waxed their pubes, I don't think of children or lack of sexual maturity.

Topic Do men want women to shave their face?
Posted 09 Jun 2016 11:35

Since when is the human body ugly by design? So much even, that people feel the need to alter it? Bleach your anus, enlarge your tits, and remove all of your hair. Trying to look like prepubescent Kens and Barbies. Why is that, I wonder. Some say hygiene, which imho is bullshit. If you regularly wash yourself, you're clean, if you don't, you're not, regardless of hair. It's that simple. Some say, it feels better. Does it really? It has become so fashionable, that many don't even know, how it feels with hair. They shaved everything before before they were ever touched. They'll never experience how soft a caress can be, if it just touches those tiny, amost invisible hairs, nature has enhanced your sensory sytem with. Because that's one of the things those hairs, in your face too, do. They enhance your senses, they make it possible to feel even the subtlest touch. I think that nature and evolution did an awesome job. The human body is beautiful. Maybe hairless Ken and Barbie are an example to many. To me they'll always be hairless, sexless and ageless dolls. I prefer real humans, ones that don't make me feel like a pedofile, when I look at their genitals.

So then I guess you also prefer unshaven legs and pits on women? I've heard some guys like that - the totally natural look, keeping the body exactly as it is, because it's 'beautiful by design' and they don't want it altered or changed. Hairy legs and pits would be hard for most Western women to get behind, but maybe some would go with it for a partner who was attracted to au natural legs, bush and lady-stache. I couldn't do it, personally, but everyone is into different things.

*** Waxing. Threading. Bleaching. Shaving ***

Women and Facial Hair

Face-shaving has become more and more popular in recent years. Or at least more women are admitting they do it. Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Betty Paige and Cleopatra all did it. In Japan, it's called kao sori.

Whether you do it to remove the peach fuzz to make makeup go on smoother or to look better in photo closeups or you do it because genetics have predisposed you to growing a semi-beard, women are coming out of the closet on facial hair removal.

There is a technique called 'Dermaplaning' that is best done in the Derm's office that involves a blade scraped along the face that supposedly helps with exfoliation, cellular turnover and helps to keep skin more smooth and youthful. But still... what it mostly amounts to is a fancier version of 'shaving yo face.'

Do you do it? Do you use another method? And guys - as suggested by this youtube vid, are you turned off by a girl who has visible facial hair?

It looks so unnecessarily messy, a waste of product and I'll bet the fumes aren't too pretty either. Some people seem excited about it though.

Topic What is your favourite scent?
Posted 06 May 2016 09:29

As someone who can't wear perfume, I've often wanted to buy a particular brand just for the bottle. I love this one.😍

I know what you mean - I wanted the bottle before I wanted the perfume! (luckily, after first sniff, I loved the fragrance too)

ps. If you like the bottle, right now on Sephora online, they have a promo code called 'DAYANDNIGHT' - you can get a free mini bottle (.25 oz) with any $25 Sephora purchase online. I'm pretty sure the Miu Miu one is still available, but probably won't be for too long. It's really cute. I have the mini and the large size. It really is the prettiest bottle I've seen in a long while.
