I'm so vain.

I have been packing for a WEEK and my hands are all shitty and dry and paper-cutted and hangnaily as a result.

Also, I haven't painted my fingernails since high school because who has time for that shit. But Joel got me a spa package for my birthday and I couldn't get in until just today and I've never had a facial or a manicure before in my LIFE but I might have to start making time to paint my nails again because look how pretty I am.

Like a laydy.
