I found two that are somewhat close, but not nearly perfect matches?: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Fancy-Wrought-Iron-Full-Length-Cheval-Dressing-Mirror-Scroll-Design/192590177681?hash=item2cd744e591:g:swsAAOSwVuNbDpsX https://www.etsy.com/listing/580329642/wrought-iron-french-style-vintage-mirror?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=wrought iron mirror&ref=sr_gallery-1-10
Honestly that snap rant just sounds like a full on manic episode to me? Reminds me of every person I know with a cyclical mood disorder having a bad "high" period and just getting noticeably more and more erratic with their behavior and decisions. She might honestly not have a full grasp of her faculties and, oddly enough, I really hope that's the case. At least that way it would be a treatable condition and not just an extreme case of the stupid.
I think it depends on your culture? For some people, it doesn't much matter at all if the dress is/was someone else's. For example, lots of people wear their mother's old dress or buy from thrift shops/vintage shops. Honestly, I'm just glad she's not planning to just leave the dress sitting there wasting away as a weird room decoration. She might just be finally getting over her "preserve the wedding forever" thing? More likely she just wants to free up space for something else. Though I'll be honest, if doing just one panel made her this lively and brought out such a better side of her, then the implication that she plans to do more of them is a good thing I think. Hopefully she DOES do more panels and gets to actually produce content outside of her super isolated fetish marriage.
Okay, so I'm from the greater Seattle region and I'm trying to figure out what event she's talking about going to??? If it's "a couple hours" away from Seattle and still big enough to have a real conference of sorts then the most likely options are Olympia (Eastern Washington, state Capital), Yakima (Western Washington, over the mountains), or Tri-Cities (also Western Washington, over the mountains). If so, the only relevant thing I could find in early May is this? https://www.experienceolympia.com/event/lacey-s-t-e-m-fair/1865/ It's probably a conference in relation to Scotlenda since anything relevant to Yum-Yum would take place in Seattle proper or the cities within an hour's drive away.
WHOA. Is that. Who? What. When did this come up. I mean. It's leagues and leagues and LEAGUES above the baby alien face but i'm just. So confused. why this suddenly. Why the sudden classy mature look. Huh???
Noods needs to just. Do a full stop and get a real adult job in the real adult world. Maybe that'll giver her time to reassess her terrible decision making before she comes back to the internet to do...whatever it is this has become.
I know that we've beaten the cancer thing to death at this point, but I do have a question about it that I've been meaning to ask...
When she said that she "got out" of leukemia, did that....possibly mean that she was cured? Like that she was finally done with cancer? Because saying that she was being treated for it in 2015 makes zero sense, as noted by half a dozen folks already. BUT...would it make sense for her to have completed treatment at 2015, then leading to a successful year?
This is the only angle of the translation I haven't seen cleared up and I sadly don't have the ability to translate for myself to understand. Is there someone who can debunk/confirm this possibility???
Frankly I just don't want to accept that she pulled the cancer card. It's just. Dakota. You were doing so much better. You were making them baby steps. Just. Why this. Why.
MOVED OVER FROM YUMI'S VIDEOS RE: THE WILL THE REAL SLIM SPLENDA PLEASE STAND UP AKA someone found Splenda's Linkd In
First and foremost, great thanks to user @idwmt for putting in the time and effort to dig for the real linkd in.
That being said, I went in on the published articles and found out that his full name is Brian Scott Cook As of Dec. 2002, he had only gotten a Bachelor's degree (see bottom of article) so that gives us a rough estimate that he was at least 22 by that point, which means that 15 years later he's at LEAST 37. This is all assuming, of course, that the man was churning out patent work the same year that he was graduated which, without a very fortuitous undergrad research position, is deeply unlikely. Besides that, since the priority dates are set in the year 2000, chances are that he'd been graduated as far back as then and was graduated in 2000, which means we can tack on another 2 years to his age. TL;DR: You can pick apart evidence from Splenda's published work to figure out that he's AT LEAST 39 years of age. Splenda u old
EDIT: I'm moving the contents of this post to the Splenda thread bc I just realized that I'm about to go in and really deep dive this man's published work so like, might as well do it in the right location. But, for the curious, the main point was that Splenda is assuredly at least 39 years old. Peace y'all
Christ, I wouldn't have recognized her voice if I wasn't looking to hear it. She legitimately is way better than Joey holy SHIT. Yeah, I'm going to re-iterate my point, Aki has all the potential and ability for a rise based on actual ability and hard work. Granted I still want to cry over her eyeliner and chapped lips, but those aspects are far more superficial than her efforts to branch out.
Chrrrrrist those PENCIL BROWS...oh my god, she's always been the laziest and weirdest iteration of any sub/culture she's tried to join. Christ. I think she was going for the raver/scene style, that was particularly popular with teens in the early 2000s, at least in the states and Canada. She'd have been a teenager when Avril Levigne was releasing her first albums, right? There's so much going on here but at the end of the day, I feel like she started out as a racist homophobic scene kid, ala the Ostrenga gang, but instead of trying to run away from that, just kept covering it in a new mask over and over again so that her core grosseness remained as is, but buried under a mile long layer of bullshit. This is the only feeling I get from seeing scene kid/raver gUrl kandiJinn
