Eyelash curler and the injury prone.

I must have gone mad, because I am lusting after a Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler. Or a Shiseido Eyelash Curler.


All this coming from someone who jabbed her eye with a mascara wand one morning while getting ready for work.

The generic drugstore eyelash curler I bought can't seem to do the trick! For some reason it doesn't fit over my eye, there is something off about the curvature. And it struck me, I will never have this problem with world acclaimed eyelash curler!

-- Purrrrty gold

But for $32, the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler is a bit steep, and there is no guarantee that it fits over my eye nicely. (I read online that some people have this problem too.) I contemplated trying it at the Shu Uemura outlet before plonking 32 clams on it, but I'm too embarrassed to step in and let the whole world know how awkward I am around makeup tools.

What to do. What to do. :(

iOS4 - Official Bane of My Life.

I have to say, Apple really messed up on iOS4.



I upgraded months after the OS was released and now my beloved phone has turned into a major pain. I used to love it. I could play games, take notes, read my mail and news in peace. It was just what I want my phone to do.

And now, I can't download my email properly because Mail hangs. The screen turns white and it remains white when I tap on the Mail icon again.

My games are now Black Screen of Death. Or they will load and then hang. I see the graphics but nothing happens when I tap on anything and everything.



I hate the Archive option in Mail. I just want to delete the junk that is sent to my email address with 1 swipe. But now, I have to load the damn junk just to delete it.



My networking options are now cranky as hell. Turning on 3G and Cellular Data makes EVERYTHING I have listed above happen ALL AT THE SAME FREAKING TIME.



iOS4 isn't significantly faster and I don't really care about the silly wallpaper that is customizable on any phone eons ago that is only available to iPhone iOS4 now.

Just make my damn phone work seamlessly and flawlessly again!

I want my iPhone 3.1.3 back. Damn you Apple. Make the downgrade legit and available to customers damnit.

New job and fading away fast.

Wow time does pass quickly. It will soon be 1 month since I jumped ship.

Work isn't hectic but it is starting to pick up steam. The good thing is I'm learning a lot from this new job and there is just so much to do! Still I am learning how I fit in the office.

The office network isn't as flexible as my previous workplace's. No surfing nor chatting on MSN Messenger. Just pure uninterrupted Microsoft Office work all day. All week. I get home at 8pm or 9pm. Eat, shower, sleep. Rinse and repeat.

I feel... productive. But somehow I feel I have aged overnight from the stress. I am tired, and I have the sniffles. ALL the time.

I feel I have lost my life. Goodbye youth and self-expression!

Seriously I should make more time for myself. Coming home and going to bed almost immediately just makes me feel like I'm fading away.

Le sigh.
