    Hi Justine,

    How exciting! When are you leaving for Japan, and how long will you be there?

  61. Karen says:

    Hi Katee,

    How is the job search going?

    Stay warm and dry down there! Tell the kitties Tabs and I say hello. :)

  62. Karen says:

    Hi Meredith,

    How fun! What makeup did he get you?

    Oh, and good luck on your callback! What is the part/show?

  63. Karen says:

    Hi Milan,

    I’m so happy for you! :) Are you guys going to start trying soon?

  64. Karen says:

    Hi Vanessa H.,

    Nice! How did your hair appointment go? Are you happy with the cut?

  65. Karen says:

    Hi Shevonne,

    I can’t live without my acne medication either. I can’t believe I’m still saying that at 33…

    How are those cream shadow blushes? I haven’t tried Chanel’s yet!

  66. Karen says:

    Hi YadiQ,

    LOL! Okay, I’ll make sure Tabs gets all groomed and behaves like a gentleman. He’ll bring the cat treats…

  67. Karen says:

    Hi C.,

    YUM! Cocoa creme brulee sounds scrumptious! *tummy rumbles*

  68. Karen says:

    Hi Vampy Varnish,

    Medical Editing sounds like it could be fun… kinda! At least you’ll be using your writing skills, yah?

  69. Karen says:

    Hi HoneyBrown1976,

    Stay dry down there! It’s sunny up here today so I’ll send you some virtual sunshine. :)

  70. Karen says:

    Hi Lunia666,

    Yikes! I hope your root canal wasn’t too rough. How are you feeling?

  71. Karen says:

    Hi Karen4,

    My hub feels the same way about pesto. I do the same thing when I’m on own for dinner, LOL!

  72. Karen says:

    Hi Rose,

    Nice! What falls did you hike up to?

  73. Karen says:

    Hi Stephie,

    Awesome! I bet that was an amazing, high energy concert! Did he smile at you? ;)

  74. Karen says:

    Hi Kate,

    I bet Zena loves having her coat brushed. I swear my dog looks like she’s in heaven whenever she gets a good grooming! :)

    Funny how we end up with our names… can you imagine yourself as a Victoria? My mom almost named me Stephanie! I can’t see myself as Stephanie or as a Steph.

  75. Karen says:

    Hi Tatiana,

    Wha? No love for the Blacktrack? What don’t you like about it?

  76. Karen says:

    Hi Angelina,

    That’s awesome that you love your cheekbones! I wish mine were more defined!

    When is your marathon? How’s the training going?

  77. Kate says:

    Karen–

    Ugh, I can’t imagine being a Victoria. I don’t look like a Victoria either.

    Oh yes, Zena loves being brushed when she wants to be brushed. If I brush her just right, she falls asleep on the floor. She has two brushes right now with one with two brushes (one on each side). I think I’m going to get another brush for her that specializes in raking out the shedding fur from her undercoat.

  78. tatiana says:

    It seems too creamy to me. Too much of a good thing I guess or maybe my lids are too slippery when I apply it, although I was able to do a nice cat eye, thanks to Romero’s tutorial on the MAC site!

    I am a total sunscreen junkie so I’m all over that!

    They have an eye sunscreen too that looks good too.

    I just hope it doesn’t look chalky on my skin!

    Anyway, I hope you had a nice Tuesday. :)

  82. Karen says:

    It sounds like you had a great weekend. I hope your week is off to a good start…

  83. Karen says:

    Hi Jana,

    I love sleeping in on the weekend, too! I need to do it more often.

    How is the job search going?

  88. Karen says:

    Hi RetroRiotGrrrl,

    I hope things are okay with your BF.

    I’m sorry to hear about your hair… what happened?

  89. Karen says:

    Hi Music_Is_Freedom,

    Yum! Dinner sounds like it was delish! I might have to make that this week. :)

    I hope your run was good! And girl — are you thinking of getting some new ink?

  92. Karen says:

    Hi MaryJane C.,

    I hope you have a nice Valentine’s too! :)

  93. Karen says:

    Hi Mimi,

    Hola, girl! Oh, I have to say that Dermalogica microfoliant is the shizz! I heart it!

  94. Karen says:

    Hi Tania,

    OMG — I don’t think she would be very fun to hang out with. Her cousin also seems very stressful to be around.

  95. Karen says:

    Hi Ellie Paddy,

    Mmm, now I’m craving chicken satay sticks. :)

  96. Karen says:

    Hi Lucky,

    Have a good week… I’ll be with you in spirit in the fitness department this week!

  98. Karen says:

    Hi Kate,

    Yeah, I feel the same way about Stephanie — I don’t feel like I look like a Steph!

    Oh, have you heard of that special grooming tool called the Furminator? It’s supposed to help remove the hair from the undercoat. I’m thinking of getting one for Tabs. :)

  99. Karen says:

    Hi Tatiana,

    I will have to check out his tutorial!

    What brush are you using? The 266?

  100. Karen says:

    Hi Justine,

    That’s so awesome! I have always wanted to go there… I bet you’ll have an amazing time!

    What cities will you be visiting? Do you have your itinerary planned or are you just going to wing it?

  102. Megan says:

    So I have to admit that half of me is all girly and loves Valentine’s Day…and the other half just thinks it silly and commercialized and that we should show our loved ones that we love them all the time. I decided this year to make his present for Valentine’s Day…which is a love notes jar. This is something we did in sorority – where all the members would write nice little notes to the new girls and they would get a jar…or occasionally a wooden box with all these nice notes about them. ANYWAY I have tons of e-mails and text messages saved from since I met boyf…and I went to Michaels and picked up nice paper as well as some scissors and punches to make it all decorative and I used rub on transfers then a glaze, as well as some ribbons to decorate the jar. Now I just have to finish writing out all the little notes for in the jar.

  103. Kate says:

    I have heard of the Furminator (or the Fur buster) and was thinking about buying it…until I saw was it looked like and the price at Target. It looks like a normal brush you use to get to the undercoat (a horizontal comb on a handle) with an attachment and it was $20! I stood there looking between the $5 brushes that look like the Furminator and the $20 Furminator and honestly couldn’t tell the difference besides the fact the Furminator was packaged and smaller. I was a bit peeved I couldn’t get the $5 one as I didn’t have enough cash on me at the time. I will get one when I go to Petsmart for more Eukanuba.

    The Pedipaws thing looked ridiculous too when I saw it at Target. You’re basically paying $20 for a plastic tool that looks like it’ll break on the first use. I thought about getting it for Zena because she despises having her toenails clipped (she wages WWIII). After one look at that flimsy thing and I said, “Zena is just going to have to live with getting the nails trimmed at the vet. I’m not paying $20 for that when I can pay $20 for the vet to clip them.”

  104. Karen says:

    Hi Fidigum,

    That is a FANTASTIC palette. I love that one, too. :)

  105. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    My psychology teacher from high school had us do something like that at the end of the school year. Each student had to write one positive thing about each person in the class and then give it to them. I still have those little slips of paper to this day. I take ‘em out every once in awhile to read and they always bring a smile to my face.

    I bet your sweetie will swoon when you give him his gift. That’s so thoughtful and sweet! Are you almost done with it?

  106. Karen says:

    Hi Kate,

    OMG, I was tempted by the Pedipaws! I saw the infomercial late one night and I just kept cracking up because the cat they demonstrated it on looked really cranky. I doubt Tabs would let me clip his nails though — he’d bust a Zena if I even tried. :)

    Haha, I’m trying to imagine a cat getting it’s claws clipped. I can’t see it. Most cats I’ve been around have been declawed or they are outside kitties so their nails are naturally worn down.
