Swatched Essie Damsel in a Dress that was 50% off at Peninsula Beauty Store. I used Nailtek II just as a base and 2 coats of Julep Freedom this time to minimize shrinkage. Already chipping, and it was streaky when putting it on. So, meh. The color is amazing, but other than the brush it was somewhat of a pain. Probably going to use it as a base for some glitter polishes. *WARNING, MATURE AUDIENCE ONLY!!!* Book talk – Theme for this book talk: Science!

What’s on the needles still - Vilai by Cookie A. BMF STR Lightweight in Titania Size 1 2.25 mm Hiya Hiya needles (Not shown because there is NOTHING to show) Bakktus Scarf Strikkelise http://www.flickr.com/photos/norwayneedles/2963651011 US 2 in Wollmeise 100% in a pretty red color that makes me so happy! What’s on the Nails – Julep Petra with two coats and Nicole by OPI top coat plus and Seche Vitae as the two top coats. Will see how it goes with renewing it with Nicole by OPI than SV because of the shrinkage. Was going to do some fun St. Patrick’s Day, but decided to wait until next week. The Coffee - http://www.sanmarcocoffee.com/ Don’t do the peanut butter!!!! (NEW SEGMENT!) Book talk – The last nude by Ellis Avery (delightful read, delicious prose, wasn’t sure in beginning. Not for kids under 20 though). http://www.amazon.com/The-Last-Nude-Ellis-Avery/dp/B0085S8VWI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1362257932&sr=8-1&keywords=The+last+nude If interested in who is Tamara De Lempicka and her art: http://www.delempicka.org/ http://www.tamara-de-lempicka.org/ The Wikipedia article is not good enough. The librarian in me cringes and will not put it in if it does not have enough citations and references. If you want to use that as a baseboard, go for it. But I think the above links will be a better start. Beloved by Toni Morrison – love love love. Read it during time of Roots. High school teacher (always said it was difficult, but it wasn’t. Why it took so long). I really think this should be high school recommended (necessary) reading. http://www.amazon.com/Beloved-Toni-Morrison/dp/1400033411/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1362257977&sr=1-2&keywords=beloved Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet – what I am reading now. Seems interesting so far. Still getting to know the parts to make up the novel. http://www.amazon.com/Pillars-Earth-Ken-Follett/dp/B002570J0M/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1362258025&sr=1-5&keywords=pillars+of+the+earth+by+ken+follett (NEW SEGMENT!)

Blip definitely not an option. Trying to get an Itunes-compatible RSS feed using my blogspot and feedburner. Birthday Week- so I don’t think I am going to podcast next week because it will be the week of my birthday (Friday, March 8th)! We’ll see. Mani/Pedi on Thursday. Day of going to Fondue.
