My husband got me these earrings from Diablo Organics for my birthday a few years ago (they were $$$$) and this is only the second time I’ve worn them. The 8ga hooks were a bit terrible on my lobes, so I just picked up these 1” clear earskins from Kaos to distribute the weight and soften the hook a bit. Its working a treat! They’re ametrine and brass :)
I had a terrible night last night, one of those ones where a switch went off in my brain and I sobbed for a few hours about stuff that is small and events that were so long ago I should have “gotten over them” by now, but I know thats not how these things work. So my eyes are swollen, which I have compensated for by smothering them in make up. FIXED. *twitches*
Obviously Robert Downey Jr. is auditioning to play Tuxedo Mask, yes?
Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.
And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger.com:
“The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!”
To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.
The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.
Many people in third world countries have taken up building homes out of plastic bottles, from Africa to Asia. Perhaps the trend will catch on in America and all of those bottles will stop ending up in the landfills. Wouldn’t they be better off housing the homeless? Kinda like all those empty houses scattered all over the country?
Sunday morning don’t want to get up
So I put this as one of the backgrounds
Yesterday, I found that someone changed my background to something soccer related, so just to mess around with them, I put this
Today, I looked at all the computers around me, plus my computer and
