I’m taking the L home at 5am. There is a gal a few rows away from me doing her makeup on the way to ?the office? It’s not a touch up; it’s full blown makeup.
I’m Ignoring that she isn’t wearing her face covering (still mandatory on pubic transit), but I don’t think I have ever seen this before except in movies and it strikes me as odd. Is this strange or am I being an old fudd?
I’ve seen it a few times on the Tube in London. I have no opinion on it
I see that being done while driving which is way worse. The things you see on the road. I travel about 35k miles a year and see a lot of stupid shit that’s dangerous.
Not if you do it through a computer or laptop.
So I have seen this a lot too! Yes totally dangerous. At least this person wasn’t in control of the train car.
Yep! At one point her face was two distinctly different colours.
Like what do you do if you have only half your “face on” as I have heard it called, and there is a need to evacuate the train? Do you want to be saving a little kid from a burning train car only half ready to face the day?? Then the news reporter shows up and wants an interview; you should be a hero but instead you go viral for entirely the wrong reason!!
^^ I did mention I was coming home from work at 5am right?? My layover pickup time was at 4:10pm last evening and then I worked San Antonio to Denver to San Diego and then the red eye back to Chicago (landed at 4:20am). Apologies if I’m a bit out of it.
Damn UK heatwave got me burning up all day and all night
Heatwave! In Australia we call that a light spring or warm winter at the most.
The heat isn’t the problem, it’s the damn humidity. It’s 20°C outside with 93% humidity at 7am and in my room it’s 29.5°C. Feels like I’m living in a bog and with all these damn mosquitos, I may just be in one
Well, I guess he does get around a lot.
The “Feels Like” part in weather apps hurts me always. I remember old times when I lived near the sea, and humidity was always above 80%. “35C, Feels like 45C”. Wtf. Now it’s cold all the time. Even summer is like winter to me in here.
Can’t disagree. You can always wear more clothes in cold but not less in warm.
That and also drink hot-chocolate, tea, coffee, mulled wine or moonshine to keep ya warm…
Who am I kidding, just stick to the wine and moonshine
Your kinda gal would probably want to have a summer vacation with you at the other hemisphere. Make sure to rent a proper beach house at places like Hawke’s Bay.
I can assure you that if you ever get a chance to visit New Zealand during summer, that would probably be for a while for at least December. That said though I’ve been told it’s a beautiful country, which I can’t help but agree.
Me personally I’ve wanted to visit Germany though, most notably for its clubbing and political history.
