Either the Time Turners didn't really get all destroyed or there are a lot more blue call boxes out there. ;)

Why are you talking about ME all of a sudden?! >:D

Today's aggravation: When makeup goes perfectly on one eye and looks like a small child did the other eye.

I hear you, Fliss!  Would help if they didn't have their head stu...   um, don't get me started!
The phrase you are looking for is "cranio-rectal inversion syndrome." Sorry about your ute.  I don't know about Oz, but unless that is a brand-new vehicle, in the US such significant damage would cause the insurance company to declare it totaled.

This is why I stopped doing my own toes. I am not flexible enough to bend over and reach them, and i can't see that far down either. So I'd end up painting my entire foot, which annoyed me. So now I splurge in the spring-fall and get them done.

I don't mind the decorations or plastic eggs, just the candy wrappers as my older two boys are old enough to know that candy wrappers go in the trash, not on random surfaces of the house. They try to say "Littlest Pirate did it!" I can believe that of surfaces he can easily reach like when I find them on the floor, a chair or a low table, but when they're left in a place he has to stretch to reach? Um, no.

Similarly, if you're going to decorate the cabinets with your artwork and then try to credit your toddler sister, don't autograph it.   ;D

ROFL!!! I completely sympathize with this. Completely.

My version of this, when all your nails have grown and are looking nice then one breaks and all the others follow suit.  This is why I don't get manicures.

When people tell me "You have big hands/feet for someone your size!" Mind you, I haven't heard it much but that I've heard it at all. Makes me feel like a puppy not quite grown into its paws.  I really don't think my feet are all that big even.  Okay yes, I wear the same size shoe as my friend who is 5" taller than I am, but I don't think they look freakishly large.  Same with my hands. 

I did get the hands of my paternal grandmother's paternal line and I don't remember either Grandma or any of my aunts who have the same hands ever wearing nail polish.  In fact I know one aunt is a nail biter and my nails are kind of soft and as such chip and break easily so I have resigned myself to just keeping them short and using a buffer to at least make them look shiny and nice. I've given up on polish which is a shame cause I really like some of the polishes I've seen.

I have a large frame. With 5% body fat, I would weigh 185lbs minimum, and wear a US size 14. I had size 11 feet until I had DS and they grew to a size 12 while I was pregnant. I have large hands, and moderate width fingers. I am 5'11" now, but used to be 1/2" taller.

I always scoff at the ads showing people dropping 10+ sizes on a plan with the "you can too" message. No, I wouldn't be living if I dropped that much weight.

My oldest is going to be 13 on Sunday and I swear sometimes it seems a lot more apparent than others that I've got a hormonal teenager on my hands.

Example:
Me: How was your day today?
Oldest Pirate: *long sigh* Fine...
Me: What's wrong?
Oldest Pirate: Nothing...
Me: Come on, you can say.
OP: Nothing's wrong, why do you think something's wrong?
Me: Cause of that sigh before you said "Fine."
OP: I didn't sigh!

^I only ask once.

The school district is looking to impose a parent dress code, which is definitely needed. The micro mini skirts and booty shorts worn by moms to volunteer at a high school? No.

Many parents who show up to schools around here do so in pj pants, dirty tshirts and no bras (for the ladies) or lewd t-shirts on the men.  One guy picked up his kid while wearing a shirt that said "I like (nickname for cat that also is used for private part) like a fat kid likes cake".  Really, dude, really? At an elementary school?

Just to say, I often sigh when I'm tired - not because the day has been especially bad or draining in any way, I'm just weary from a full day. Your son might not even realise that he sighed.
All will be well, and all manner of things will be well.

It wasn't just the sigh, it was the tone of voice as well.  The tone he usually uses when he's unhappy or disappointed about something.
