Mud Mask Night at Chez Kate
So, I. Live. An. Exciting. Night. I live an exciting life in which I come home from work on a Saturday night, make a lovely dinner full of veg from the CSA. I popped in a DVD from Netflix; I have the first disc of the second season of the The Gilmore Girls. And, well, I don't want to ruin the show for you, but I'm a little surprised that its taking me ten years to watch the show. In the second season Mama Gilmore Girl is engaged. She tells her Mother that this has happened and the Mother is cold (because she already found out because Mama Gilmore's friends are planning a surprise wedding shower). Mama Gilmore freaks out and says, "Who reacts like *that* when their only child says they're getting married?" And, I flashed back to a friend of mine's wedding eight years ago now and how his parent's had said, "Please don't invite our family." when their only son said that he was committing himself to his partner of four years.
So, the answer to the question "Who reacts like that?" is uncomfortable parents of gay kids and religious kids who are marrying outside of their families...and, people. I don't want to get preachy, but I'm watching this show and I'm thinking that it probably happens more often than you'd think.
In other news, The mud mask that I am using is a new mud mask. I ran out of the old mask and I thought it was time for a change. So, I'm currently waiting for this bad boy to dry. Its ionized. Apparently, dirt and crap in your skin is positively charged and this mask is negatively charged to pull the crap out of your skin. You can see the dirt that has been pulled out and trapped in the clay. It is so gross. It is also incredibly fascinating.
