(Okay, because you're going to ask: My parents are downstairs watching the Pirates 2 DVD without telling me. No, that's not the problem. The problem is that I was saving that for my birthday next week, which is probably why they didn't tell me. Except that I'm always treated to the soundtrack of whatever they're watching on TV [which usually involves a lot of gunshots and Jack Bauer DAMMIT!ing], so good luck hiding that. Are they watching my copy? I honestly don't know. The appropriate reaction would be more along the lines of an eyeroll and "Oh, my silly mother and her silly Captain Jack obsession," not a sobfest. I think I'm just stressed out from my sister's constant shenanigans, of which there were more this evening.)
On the upside, jstilwe from Snarkfest sent me a bottle of Siren (mmm, Siren) and an imp of Clio (hee), and tenebris sent me a bottle of Glitter and Dracula samples! And I still managed to burst into tears after this embarrassment of riches, which should tell you how hormonal I must be right now.

Ariz. waitresses dress as naughty nurses. Point the first: "The Heart Attack Grill opened a year ago with a Hooters-like formula of red meat and sexy waitresses. Diners choose from among four cheeseburgers: the Single, Double, Triple and Quadruple Bypass. The Quadruple is a towering monstrosity with four half-pound beef patties, four pieces of cheese and a mound of bacon." Point the second: "'Nurses are the most sexually fantasized-about profession,' said Sandy Summers, executive director of the Center for Nursing Advocacy, based in Baltimore. 'We're asking people, if they're going to have these fantasies, please don't make it so public. Move these sexual fantasies to other professions.'" Point the third: What's really creepy is the guy openly leering in the accompanying picture.
