Um...not to be rude or nothing...but

I am disappointed at the increasing lack of development when it comes to Yolanda Kipling. She’s only ever used as a tool to further the plot for Mylene.

I really was hoping to see her interact with her brothers, especially after what happened with, well, EVERYTHING. Hell, even if she was just given a minute with them each, I feel like we could have learned so much.

We know a lot about Mylene, we even know a bit about Regina, but what about Yolanda?

CHARDEE AU: Pushing Daisies

Dee: You can’t touch someone’s life and just be done with it.
Charlie: Yes I can. That’s how I roll. Usually. But you’re the only one for me.
Dee: I know you feel that now, but there are things you want. There’re things we both want.
Charlie: So? Everyone wants stuff, we wake up every day with list of wishes a mile long and maybe we spend our lives trying to make those wishes come true, but just because we want them doesn’t mean we need them to be happy.
Dee: What do you need to be happy?
Charlie: You. Even if you can’t touch me. You know, because of the whole you’ll-die-thing-if-you-do.
Dee: So a kiss is out of the question?
Charlie: I just lost my train of thought.

Tips for Successful Arguing

1. Pay attention to time and place. It’s better to deal with things privately, and when neither person is stressed, or pushed for time.

2. Be respectful – and give thought to the words that you are using. Don’t attack, blame or shame or use profane, abusive language. (Often “it’s not what you say; it’s the way that you say it.”)

3. Don’t just pile on the negatives, or list all your grievances, hurts and complaints. Make sure you mention things you are grateful for, and things that are good, and are not going wrong.

4. Try to keep to the topic or your point will lose its focus. It’s easier to deal with one thing at a time.

5. Related to this, try to be specific – and not vague and general. Also, name the emotions you are feeling at the time. I

6. Keep control of your emotions, and try to stay calm. Very little will be gained if you start to lose your cool.

7. It’s not about winning and being seen as being right. The goal should be “improving your relationship”

8. Finally, remember that anger often masks and covers hurt – and is actually a sign that the person’s seeking love. So work on building empathy and deepening your love.

Greaser Hair!

Alright guys, I’m going to show you how I take my luscious locks and make them into rumble-worthy greaser hair.

Maybe I can …. shed some light on the situation.

That was a horrible pun, I know.

Step 1: Throw on your Greaser Jams. I recommend this song.

Step 2: Push all you hair into the center of your head and pin it with bobby pins

You’re aiming for a “fo-hawk” kinda look. You’re basically going to get a big floppy mohawk down the center of your head. Don’t forget to secure the hair near the base of your skull with bobby pins in an “X” formation so that the baby hairs don’t slip out and ruin your do!

Step 3: Tease it a bit.

Separate your hair into sections that you can curl and back comb it until your hair is a bit floofy, but not too much or the next step will be more difficult. 

You want it to be able to hold the form of a curl without too much hairspray, but you don’t want too much, or you’ve totally switched decades. 

(repeat above with your whole head)

Step 4: Time to curl that shit

The reason you curl it after you pin it is so your curls fall forward. You want to start father back and move your way forward so your little ducktail (your bangs) is the last thing that you curl.

Time for the little ducktail!!

Now this is the basic shape your do is going to have …. now onto the fun part.

Step 5. HEADBANG LIKE THE ROCK GOD YOU KNOW YOU ARE!

Step 6: Pin it so your do wont flop.

BOBBY PIN UNTIL IT LOOKS PRESENTABLE. 

I have to put a tiny bobby pin in the very center of my little swooshy curl in the front so it stays short enough. We don’t wanna look like an emo alpaca. 

Step 7: Now add your sideburns.

Every great greaser has killer sideburns. I use mascara to darken the ones I have and make them longer.

Step 8: Turn on the Stray Cats and go crusin’
