Colors by Llarowe Gemini Rising

I wanted to thank you for the feedback when I asked if you'd still come here if I didn't have nail polish pictures anymore due to the impending ban at my work.  There was one who said they wouldn't, which I get.  This is supposed to be a nail polish blog and without it, I get that some people won't come back.  Since the ban hasn't happened yet, I honestly don't know what I will do.  I might be too lazy to polish just to take it right back off.

I did however, find the holy grail matte top coat to trick them at work into thinking I have naked nails. I have it on now and it's genius.  It's from Oceans of Beauty where I get my clear dip gel from. My code FPM20 is still active, so if you haven't used it yet, you still can. I will be getting back ups of this matte top coat for sure.

I finally transferred all my music from my 3GS iphone to my new 7+ iphone.  I figure since I have 128GB I should use it! Listening to it in the car, there are pros and cons.  First of all the sound quality is amazing.  I had no idea the 3GS ruined the sound quality.  Then there is the issue that I can't get it to play as loud as I would want.  It's already maxed out at 30 and I've got it on 25-26 most of the time. I have tried both using Bluetooth as well as the USB cord.  The only difference is the way it shows on my display.  I prefer the display with the cord, but then my phone doesn't fit in the little space without bending the cord.

The one thing I cannot stand is when a text message comes through it is loud as hell.  I mean jump out of your skin scary loud as I have the music so loud.  I'm not about to turn that off every time I get into the car.  I had hoped that by using the USB and ipod setting, this wouldn't happen, but it did. I do love the sound quality though.  But I haven't decided if the other cons outweigh this one pro.

I've also been downloading apps like a mad man.  Again, I have all this space and I've decided I'm going to use it! I'm not a gamer person, so these are for life stuff.  Helping with your finances and saving and telling you where your money is going each month sort of things.  A couple of journal apps, but haven't done those yet.  If you know any good help with your life apps, please let me know!

Or just any good apps, let me know!

All right.  Today we have one of my top favorite green polish.  It is CbL Gemini Rising.

Illamasqua Phallic

Oh yeah people. It's the day where I wore my favorite named polish.  I'm telling you, unless there is Divine intervention, February 1st is coming and I have to wear my sacred colors.  Those who have been with me since the beginning know it's been YEARS since I last wore this polish.

I decided a loss in the nail polish battle needed Phallic worn as a sort of f*ck you to the establishment.

Did I tell you that my boss made me get my flu shot while I was sick? I can't remember if I did or not. The deadline was December 1st so I had told her back in August that that was the day I would get my shot.  Well she had other plans.  It made my cold stick around much longer.

I also left out an important detail in the meeting I had with the second in command.  JCAHO had been doing a mock survey that entire week.  This is the people who determine whether you get certain certifications etc. Apparently, my department didn't do well at all.  It was the clinic and the treatment room that had a lot of things wrong with it.

Once the second in command found out I worked in that department, she just kept referring back to the fact that our area did poorly.  The timing of my meeting couldn't have been worse.  I doubt things would have gone differently, but that fact alone made her less inclined to even hear what I had to say.

As I write this, it's the last of my five days off I get every year for Thanksgiving.  It's just how my schedule works. I've been piddling around the house, I raked my back yard, cleaned my back gutters and got caught up on a ton of magazines I had.  I'm also babysitting my neighbor's cat.  She watches mine when I'm gone and I watch hers. It's a cool arrangement.

I've got nothing new to discuss at work except the new girl who was told she was hired to overhaul the navigator program is hitting walls from people who don't want to change as they've been doing the same thing for years.  She said to me that if this isn't why she was hired, that she would move on. As she designed from the ground up the program at another hospital.

I don't envy her this job at all.  I do my thing, keep my head down.  Oh and occasionally get torn a new one by family members.

So I called the patient right? Introduced myself told him that I would be with him through this and setting up his appointments etc.  He was very nice and appreciated it.  Next thing I know, I got a call from the wife.  And she went off on me.  How dare I call her husband and what did you say to him and that this is her life and this is her husband and she will not be disrespected and on and on.

I just sat there at my desk dumbfounded as I had no idea where this was coming from.  (Actually I do, it's fear etc) When she finally had enough and had hung up the phone, I must admit it brought tears to my eyes as I was already sick with a cold, my voice was hoarse and hard to understand and there was no reason for her to go off like that.

The doctor I work mostly with summed it up nicely.  He said some people are just a*sholes.

I am looking forward to meeting her.


All right.  Let's look at the aptly named Phallic.


Sadly, I couldn't get a good shot of this.  It's a deep dark blue with blue shimmery glitter in it.  I simply love this.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

I mentioned last post that my mom was here.  She's expecting a post about this as I always complain that she wears me out.  So here it is mom! Yes she wore me out yet again! She doesn't know how to just sit.  It isn't in her.  Never has, probably never will.

We got a lot done around my house.  She stained my deck and front porch.  It looks amazing.  The day we went shopping, we decided to stop and get some lunch.  I parked the car and as we were walking to the restaurant, something blew past us.

It was a four point buck running at top speed toward the building the restaurant is in.  He did not stop or slow down and plowed right into the brick wall at full speed.  He fell down to the ground, bleeding from the mouth and his back legs weren't working.

Mom and I were hoping he was just stunned and would get up.  He didn't.  It was a very sad thing to see.  I tried to talk calmly to him, trying to soothe him, but that didn't help.  By this time, the manager had come out of the restaurant and I told him to call the game warden and get them here fast.

Mom and I went inside at that point.  I could see the game warden's vehicle arrive.  We asked the waitress what ended up happening.  She said sadly, that the deer didn't get any better and they had to put him down.  It was the saddest thing.  Where I grew up, the deer are almost tame and you can walk up to them and feed them apples and stuff so I just love deer.

We have no idea what caused the deer to race into the wall like that and where we were was a mall/shopping center and not really a place where you would think deer would be hanging out.  The waitress told us she thought it had maybe gotten hit by a car or something like that.

What she told us next had mom and I just shaking our heads.

The waitress said that the people who were sitting in the booth where the deer hit demanded a free meal as they were "traumatized" by the incident.

Why are people so stupid??? People will stop at nothing to get something for free.  It just irritates the crap out of me.

Then I go to hair dye day and my hairdresser tells me about how she went to the local Walmart and saw this...........

Don't worry, this has been on TV and in the newspapers so I'm not taking anyone's privacy.  Do you see what's in the cart???? Yup that would be a gutted buck.  In Walmart.  Not something you see everyday right???? This is why it made the news.

So I had two deer stories for you.

Now let's look at a polish I haven't worn since 2011.  Again, since February is coming, I'm wearing my precious ones.  This I actually got from Brazil in a trade.  I give you HITS Hera.

Oh and yeah, I let my nails grow out long too before the ban.  How stunning is this???? It's such a tiny bottle of polish only 6ml.  They aren't five free and they stink like old polish, but they have amazing holoness!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
