Take the bitter with the tweet

I can’t stress enough the importance of sleep. Getting enough Zs make you beautiful. Skipping on sleep is just going to make you cranky — ugly on the inside and on the outside.
When I sleep I like to wake up without an alarm so I wake up naturally. If only those stupid birds outside would stop squawking. They call that music?

Lovely leather we’re having

I did a search online to find out how to clean leather so that I wouldn’t have to get my jacket cleaned professionally. Let me just warn you, it’s worth getting it done professionally.
The advice I found was to mix 1 part vinegar with 2 parts linseed oil. Rub that mixture on the leather and let it sit over night before rubbing it off with a dry lint-free cloth. Well I never got around to the second part.
Think about it. Vinegar and oil? Sounds like a salad. Smells like a marinade. It was delicious.

Two-face jokers

Two-face friends. Everyone knows one. They talk smack about you behind your back, and smile pretty full of compliments when you’re together. There’s enough drama in life (and undead life) that we don’t need to artificially add to this. Let’s make a pact. Human or monster. If you’ve got a two-face joker for a friend just flip a coin. Heads you drop them like a hot potato, and tails you stick their face in potato salad.

So long, and angst for all the fish

If you are a moody, angst-ridden teenager, take heart, and tell your parents to get off your back. You mind is developing, and your mood swings and emo feelings are part of that process. Own it. Then as soon as you can, get over it, you big, fat baby.
