Gross, Weird, And I Gotta Have It.

I was browsing instagram because I was bored and came across this IG for “Glitter Slimes”. I’m one of those people that finds videos of makeup being poured satisfying, gooey mixtures being mixed fascinating and doughy concoctions being kneaded oddly compelling. Then….I found this.

Oh. My. Satisfying. God. 

On their IG they have wondrous videos of people mushing this stuff and when I found out I CAN BUY MY OWN?!?!

I’m there. Tuesday at 3pm. I don’t even care which one.

They’re scented slimes, basically, probably made with borax. I’m so excited, people. 

Yours in strangeness, always-

Birthday Schmirthday

I figured I’d share this, just because it’s not really a big deal, it’s part of who I am, I’m certainly not ashamed, and it just is.

I’m adopted-I was placed with my parents at 5 months old, and was in foster care from birth. I even had a different name-Katharine Heather Wood-until my parents changed it. I’ve always known, it was never a secret, and I was always told how special being adopted was, so it was a non issue. I have a sister (who is my parents biological child-she’s 2 years younger. It always seems to work that way, parents can’t get pregnant then boom-surprise!) and as kids, we’d argue and bicker like most siblings do. If she was either really pissed or really angry she’d bust out with “well at least I’m not ADOPTED!!!” That never bothered or hurt me, it was in fact, a gift because there was no quicker or deeper trouble for her by my mom than whipping out the adoption card. So I’d cash that gift in, tell on her, then be extremely satisfied that she was now grounded. She only used that one maybe twice. 

I’ve been asked often if I ever intend to look for my “birth mother”. The complete answer is no. My mother is my mother, period. The journey she took to get there doesn’t matter to me. We’ve had a complicated relationship as mothers and daughters do, but she’s my mom. She nursed me when I was sick, taught me many things, held me when I hurt, and was there my whole life. I don’t need to look any further. 

I didn’t discover the circumstances of my birth until I was 18. I was abandoned at birth-not born in a hospital, and left on the forest floor for hours until 2 young girls riding their bikes down a dirt path in a desolate part of town found me. According to newspaper reports I was wrapped in a bloodstained green sheet with my umbilical cord still attached. I was estimated to be 12 hours old. The responding police officer didn’t wait for an ambulance-he drove me to St Mary’s hospital in his patrol car. After a hospital stay I was placed with a foster family, and the rest is history.

For some reason that didn’t really bother me too much. Sure, I was angry-like, who does that?  It wasn’t until I had my first child that it hit me. Just looking at my helpless, vulnerable newborn I couldn’t help but think “what the actual fuck was wrong with her?” I’ve heard it all-she was probably young and scared, etc etc and I accepted that for a while, until I didn’t. I felt no matter how young and scared there were a million other options than the damn woods where I would have surely died had those girls not found me. 

Then came the birthday dread. I hated my birthday. Despised it. If I could ignore it, even better. It made me uncomfortable, it made me cringe, and I just wanted to skip it every year. I’m not sure why, even-because I’m here. I won. She didn’t erase me. Maybe because someone hated me that much at minutes old, that was her decision, to leave me in the dirt and cold? 

But I got over it-I don’t dread Sep 29 every year any more. I don’t exactly go all out-but I don’t want to stay in bed all day. I still don’t have much empathy for whoever she is, but I don’t actively care, either. So no, i don’t want to find my “birth mother”. I’d have nothing to say. Why doesn’t matter to me anymore. It’s not who or what I am, a foundling. It’s just a small slice of my history, kind of interesting even.

So there you have it. 

I did try and find the police officers that responded-the one who drove me to the hospital passed away in 2010, and the other? Still working on it. I have 2 newspaper articles about me being found. It’s at the very least, interesting. 😉

Who’s Pregnant? What? No.

TMZ, Daily Mail, People, and other news outlets are reporting that Kylie Jenner is pregnant with her 25 year old rapper boyfriend Travis Scott’s baby. Seriously.

She’s reportedly 4 months pregnant. 

Congrats, I guess? 20 years old. At least she can afford it.

RHONY Engagement Update

Anna Rothschild is denying reports that she’s engaged to prolific dater Tom D’Agostino….yet.  She says the ring was a “gift” but hasn’t said from whom-and get this-she’s friends with Luann. Well, was. I can’t see them friends now.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-4901420/Anna-Rothschild-NOT-engaged-Luann-Lessep-s-ex.html
Anna Rothschild is a PR exec, and is not descended from the banking Rothschild family-but she’s got a colorful past. In 2014 she was dating a 30 year old Princeton grad (she was 49) and he murdered his father.

Hmm.

I feel like she might be a mess.

RHOC Thoughts?


Well. Just when I’m starting to hate Dodd less, she ruins it. She can be funny, supportive, all that good stuff but her temper, that temper and the evilness that comes out of her face-I can’t. 

Lydia is turning into quite the bitchy mean girl this season. I’m not sure I like this Lydia. And where are Dougs socks? He hasn’t worn socks once. Is it a Miami Vice tribute? If she cries and cackles about “cutting off his balls” one more time….She just sounds so stupid, I get she thinks it’s cute, but it’s completely inaccurate and I almost feel like she’s passive aggressively emasculating him. It’s just obnoxious because a vasectomy isn’t equal to castration. I don’t like her mean girl crap towards Shannon.

Ah-Shannon. When did she become so needy? Demanding Tamra drop her cake and come running because she beckoned? She never has been able to hide turmoil in her private life-she always acts out and I guess this is one way. I can’t dislike her though-she’s flawed and she knows it, she doesn’t try to hide it. As if she could.

Vicki. Is her time up yet? She’s all about angry indignation at being called a liar, she does not lie, people-she’s on an ETHICS committee, ok? But I do believe the entire reunion last season was Vicki admitting to “fabrication” and apologizing for, well, lying. She does this dumb damsel act where she pretends to not understand something and tries to get all cute and helpless about it-anyone notice? 

Peggy-I do not think we’ll see Peggy in another season. I don’t think she’s meshing with the other cast members and she has no real storyline. I think her husband is more excited to be on the show than she is. She’s just kind of boring-and clearly has no time for the nonsense which isn’t going to work. You have to have nothing BUT time for the nonsense.

I’ve always liked Meghan. Even her first season when a lot of ppl hated her, I liked her. I think she gets unfair crap for not spending every second with Aspen, but to be fair, we don’t know how many actual days she spent shooting and as far as her drinking, she pumps before, and pumps and dumps. A lot of women do that. She is kind of a shit stirrer.

Tamra hasn’t really been that obnoxious-it’s obvious that Shannon feels super threatened at the possibility of Tamra and Vicki making amends, and I feel like Tamra plays stupid about it-I don’t think that there’s a friendship to fix, personally. Vicki is going to keep gossiping, and Tamra is going to stay mad about it so just stop pretending there’s anything to mend.

Another Custody Fight For Jenelle

Good.

Nathan’s mother has filed for emergency custody of Kaiser. Among her allegations:

•Jenelle cannot control her anger

•Jenelle’s daughter, Ensley, was born with marijuana in her system sparking a CPS investigation.

•Both David and Jenelle tested positive for marijuana 

•Jenelle locked Kaiser and Jace out of the house on a very hot day

•Kaiser has had unexplained bruises and marks in him.

•David disciplines Kaiser with corporal punishment, too hard spankings, etc 

•Jenelle needs a psychological evaluation.

Jenelle says that her mother, Barbara is behind many of those allegation and blames her for everything. As Jenelle usually does. 

No gratitude for raising her son so she could go out partying and dating and having more fiancés and kids. 

What do you think?

I can tell you this-no boyfriend of mine would be disciplining, spanking, or putting his hands on any of my children. The day that happens is the day I catch a charge for attempted murder. As it is, I found out my 18 yr olds stepmother put her hands on him-and I’m biding my time. I’m very patient, and I can wait. She will feel my wrath as soon as it’s possible. Not physically. But she’ll feel it. 

I feel like Jenelle is so lazy she just sort of gave up with Kaiser and just let David take over, and there’s nothing good about that whole situation. I’ve watched a few episodes of Teen Mom this season and Kaiser is not a happy kid. Could be the age, environment or both, but he’s always crying.

I believe the allegations mostly because it’s Jenelle’s MO. Kaiser would be safer and better off anywhere but with her.

An oldie, but goodie.

YouTube Beauty Guru Dramz…

There’s always major drama in the beauty community, mostly backbiting and gossip. What you’d expect. There’s a new scandal that sorta makes me sad involving one guru I like, and one I can’t stand. 

Kathleenlights is a YouTube beauty guru from the Miami area-she’s young, 25 maybe? And really for the most part drama and scandal free.


Jaclyn Hill is also another YouTube guru, who is more famous because of her overhyped morphed palette-I am not a fan. I find her phony and disingenuous. 


So. The controversy. Kathleen went to Jaclyn’s house (they’re both in FL) to film a collab. Jaclyn was snap chatting Kathleen playing Jaclyn’s husbands VR game. During the snap, Kathleen busted out with the “N” word. Oh, Kathleen. Not you. 

That in and of itself is scandalous, but it gets worse. 

In the snap, right after Kathleen says the offensive word, her husband, Danny says “Don’t post that!” 2 or 3 times. Jaclyn claims she didn’t hear him and of course, posted it. The context in which it was said was “N—a don’t fuck with me!” While playing the video game. Jaclyn is all the while doing her hyperventilating cackle, laughing away. You CLEARLY hear Kathleen’s husband say “Don’t post that” but Jaclyn didn’t hear it. Allegedly.

I’m not a Jaclyn fan at all. I think she’s shady and will step on anyone and anything to further her career. I don’t think she’s above posting that knowing the implications and controversy it’s going to cause. She’s pulled some crappy crap in the past, and I just think she’s fake AF. When Jeffree Star was having his beef with Kat Von D, he allegedly called his friend Jaclyn, despairing over the fight and in tears. She allegedly comforted him, then promptly ran to the YouTube drama channels (Karina Kaboom, Rich Lux, John Kuckian for example), mocked Jeffree and spilled all. I know there aren’t a ton of Jeffree fans and I get why, but that’s messed up.

Jaclyn has pretty much given up with YouTube-she posts crap content once or twice a month, and is more interested in drunken snapchats-and she seems drunk quite frequently. Just sayin. She speaks SO fast, like a speed freak, and her voice is fingernails on a chalkboard. If I had a quarter for every time she said “literally”? I’d own my dream house on the seashore. Watch her Kim K YouTube collab. Cringeworthy. She’s constantly interrupting KKW, rambling, all about herself, and you can see KKW visibly over it. I’ll link it below, as well the video of the Kathleen incident.

I love Kathleen. While she definitely plays it safe with her content, she’s personable, and she’s cute. She can poke fun at herself. I like her presentation. I hope she can come back from this, and while it was a bad idea to bust out with that word, it was probably a worse decision to trust Jaclyn to snap her. Jaclyn took like 15-20 snaps of the same thing. I don’t know. I just feel like something is off.

TV Updates, This & That

Just watched RHOD, and the most real thing about LeeAnne Locken is how fake and transparent she is. Holding an HIV charity event, then right after a speech starts with the mean girl gossip. 

I am so over the obsession with “The Society World”. Who caaaares?  

Kelly Dodd was back to her vile, gross self-attacking Meghan’s mothering. She just goes SO low, it’s unnecessary and she’s vicious. Diko, Peggy’s husband is so obnoxious with his money obsession, price dropping everything, waving cash all over the place-I’m trying to give this couple a chance but it’s not working out for me.

Did anyone watch AHS: Cult? I recorded it on DVR but have t had s chance to watch it yet-the 18 yr old had an orthodontist appt so I spent most of the morning there, and I’m just catching up with the Housewives. 

Has anyone been watching “The Sinner” on USA with Jessica Biel? It’s pretty good I gotta say….

I’m trying to manage having no phone, poor hubs has lost full use of his since I tend to take it over here and there. Hey-I’ve got posts to make!!

Shahs Of Sunset’s Trickery

WordPress is really really trying me.

Ok. Trying again for the 5th time..

This week on Shahs, we meet Tara, who Shervin has allegedly been cheating on Annalise with for 5 months. Tara is married to Rob, who has thrown her out upon finding out.

I’m looking at Tara and having a Destiney moment-I’ve seen her before in another show but can’t remember which? In Destineys case it was “People’s Couch”. Then I placed her-she and Rob were on “Newlyweds: The First Year”. Rob was controlling AF, and was a recovering addict that rebuilt his life from nothing into a successful and lucrative career. Tara was a seemingly neurotic, spoiled, high maintenance chick, I believe Rob was her second marriage and her parents were none too pleased. I * think infidelity was an issue in her first marriage as well but it’s been a while, I’m not sure. They had a weird dynamic mainly based on money, and she ruined their very expensive, luxury honeymoon by refusing to get on the plane. She was scared to fly over the water, or fly period-can’t remember.

So who do you believe? Shervin or Tara? Did he have an affair?

I think he did. Why would she make that up and have her husband find out? Shervy has everything to lose by admitting it. Come on Sherv-we all KNOW.

Some photos to refresh your memories 😉
