A quick hello

I feel alright – thank you for asking!
Today I have been hit on by a 70 year old. “I’ll be at the coffee place on the corner if you feel like it”, I also tried a menstrual cup for the first time and I’m telling you it’s a vjj revolution! Once you go cup you will never go buck! Wow- I am amazed. I also paid way to much for new face cream. Apparently I need all kind of formulas. Something about the age they ‘re telling me not like I’ve noticed.  I also got a lot of work done today. And I cooked some disgusting food that the whole family hated so much I had to cook a second dinner. High five for that one Isabelle. My youngest ran to the waste basket to spit it out. Cute.  I also been asked if I’d served time in Iraq after wearing my camo pants. While all the time I just thought I was fashion.
Hope your day was as good as mine!

    oj nu blev det fel (submit) när jag skulle rätta min kommentar. Nåväl, det skulle stå: “det tycker jag, 70-åringen o aaalles där emellan”. Fin!
    Isabelle: puss på dig muchos gracias!

      jag hann före bara – “great minds think alike” ska vi lägga fokus på i just detta fall, tycker jag!

    Okay….I can’t get over this menstrual cup! I have never even heard of such a thing. Is that something common in Europe? Is it new? My mind is blown hahaha.
    Christina – I KNOW! I heard about it like about a year ago and dismissed it as a hippie thing (not that I don’t like hippie things but just a bit over the top) but then I heard all these cool young gals starting using it and they started to sell them at the pharmacy here. And when you think about it – it’s genious. And good for the environment- both in the vjj but also the earth as of all. Well I just started using one but I’m convinced the y will be laughing at us in the future about using anything else. Like that movie with Sandra Bullock and Stallone when he wakes up after beeing freezed for years and then goes to the toilet and asks where the toilet paper is and they all laugh at him! xx isabelle

    ha ha, isabelle! you always make me laugh – was the old guy cute at least?! happens to me sometimes at work at the library branch in the upper class old neighbourhood, but …. just read the first HUSH HUSH. have you read the Ally Condie trilogy? see ya! Gigi

    • Isabelle McAllister April 30, 2013 at 11:42 #

      nah -gigi not really cute but we talked for a while in a store while waiting for our turn at the cashier. I love talking to strangers though so… taht was fun. Get a piece of someones life for a couple of minutes.

      I’ve read the first ally conde and half the second but then stopped. Too boring for me. I never quit otherwise but I just lost interest in this one. Maybe start again. Have you read them? And did you like hush hush?

    you look gorgeous, isabelle!!!
    and guess what, i know that menstrual cup.
    i used them for a long time after my pregnancy.
    i dont really know why i stopped using it.
    it really was better than using anything else.
    maybe i should start it again.
    when i used it for the first time – nearly five years ago, it really was a “hippiething”.
    but i think now it isnt anymore.
    yeah…so maybe i start it again.:)

    oh and by the way…you made me laught so much, because of your disgusting food.
    i know that…oh i know that well. haha…great!!!

      Eni – thanks. Yes the cup maybe it’s time again! And the food – well we all have to make mistakes now and then i guess!

    Love my menstrual cup, wish more marketing would be done to normalise it, when I started using it way back in2006, I used to give mini seminars to anyone who wanted to hear it!

    So glad to hear more women are warming up to the cup! I have been using one for years and have been praising it to all my friends with the success of one or two converts and lots of “oh my god GROSSS!!!” I agree with you, once you try it, there is no going back.

    • Isabelle McAllister May 3, 2013 at 21:24 #

      I dont get the gross thing? Why is that? The name is a bit weird and i didn’t realize just how easy it was to use! Love it now- such a gift. Just to be able not to think about it for hours!
