I love reading these. So, all of my 1000+ readers are tagged! PLEASE do it! It's so much fun to read!

1. I am a huge, huge bookworm. My favorite authors are Jonathan Kellerman, Val McDermid, and Jason Starr. My favorite book will always be American Psycho.

2. In correlation with the previous fact, I am obsessed with murders, mysteries, cold cases, and the like. I can't stop watching the Investigation Discovery channel on TV! So fascinating.

3. Christian is exactly 2 and a half years older than me. We met in high school.

you may say i'm a dreamer,

(to quote Dinner for Schmucks)
but I'm not.
Because I found my life-long, impossible to find, super hardcore lemming!

OPI (original) My Private Jet
OMG, OMG, OMG! Am I the luckiest girl, or what? I found this is a small, super old beauty supply. I've been there before, with no findings, but this time.... it was a miracle. For those who don't know, My Private Jet has so many versions- this is the original, which OPI supposedly 'lost' the recipe for. The current MPJ is a poopy brownish gray with silver sparkle. Uh, no thanks. But this one? I'll take seconds!
This was 1 coat MPJ over 1 coat Orly matte Vinyl. I'm trying to ration!

I'm still in shock how lucky I got! Thanks for reading!
