Some people don't like Monday mornings

Two of my facebook friends, unknown to each other, posted these photos of cats within 12 minutes of each other.  Thanks for the double attack of Monday morning grumpy kitties on my news feed!

Old fashioned ideas

It's so funny and old-fashioned.  Tehehehehe.

Unfortunately, people haven't left these ideas in the past.  My friend's post keeps popping up on my facebook news feed. The post below has shown up three times now.  I sincerely hope it's not because my friend has 'calculated her ideal weight' on three separate occasions.

The formula it mentions is something like height minus 100 then minus 10%.  Whatever.  It makes me angry that an application would prescribe someone an "ideal weight", like it's not hard enough already to feel okay about your body.

Barista Training

I've been learning how to make proper barista cappuccinos.

I made some good froth so I took a photo :)

Men's Clothing Store

Since when did 'Designer Menswear' mean 'little black dress'?

Religion: Hair

I went to get my hair trimmed today and the poor hairdresser was frantic at the thought of releasing me into the wild with no products in my hair.

Me: I'd just like it trimmed and thinned and I don't want you to add anything fancy because I won't be using any product on it normally. 

Miss Hairdresser: (shocked look) But, but...

After what must have been considerable internal conflict throughout my haircut:

Miss Hairdresser: It's AGAINST MY RELIGION...of let you leave this salon without something in your hair. (puts 'gold serum' in my hair)

Our conversation during the haircut:

Miss Hairdresser: Is your coffee weak enough?

Me: I'm sure it's fine.

Miss Hairdresser: I'm not really into coffee either.  I'm not a coffee concierge.

In the Ladies' Toilet

Why are you using the ladies' toilets, Brenton!?!? 
How about you use the men's? 
Not just when maintenance work is in progress.
I can't see the harm in using a comma but I guess I understand not putting periods and colons on a toilet door.
