Spectra, I've read that the fridge test for olive oil can actually be misleading - an oil that's been mixed might still solidify in the fridge, and some pure olive oils won't solidify at all because of type of olive or when it was harvested, etc. I guess YMMV on that one. But I do always smell the oil before using. Like peanut butter, it's got a distinct smell when it goes bad. And like a recent poster, I don't call it EVOO, either, but primarily because I think it sounds ridiculous. As I said: olive oil snob. :) I suppose there are worse kinds of snobs to be. Most people don't know this about me, btw. Thanks for letting me geek out here a little about it.

Man, I had an interview and my hair looked pretty good today but then I took a nap after I got home and now it looks terrible.

In response to a confession. I feel that way about long water fasts. One guy has actually been in court because an HIV sufferer died at a retreat, and there's another 20 minute testimonial on Youtube from a woman who nearly died after water borne bacteria ripped through her system and she didn't seek medical attention for several weeks because she was told it was "detox". This is the same guy responsible for both those people, in both cases he tried to prevent them leaving with manipulative tactics. He had to move his retreats out of the US because of lawsuits against him so he started a new one in rural Costa Rica, miles and miles from the nearest hospital. It's truly disgusting. Guy should be in jail.

I'm so sick of pseudoscientific dogma I could vomit. And I say that as a card (and crystal) carrying hippie. If you have a serious and/or chronic illness you need medical attention, going to see a reiki practitioner instead of a doctor is crazy. Nobody is saying you can't have the reiki if it makes you feel better (placebo or not), but for god's sake visit your doc as well. I'm a vegan and I follow a lot of vegan Youtubers, and one of the most popular ones just came out with a stupid video stating that vegans don't need to supplement B12, when all the evidence is to the contrary. Not only that, B12 supplements are safe and cheap. Not taking B12 as a vegan (or any other at risk group) means you risk permanent nerve damage, blindness and possibly death. I'm so sick of pretty female internet personalities with zero science or nutrition background spreading dangerous dogma to their vulnerable fans, many of whom will be very young.

Speaking of olive oil....I refuse to call it "EVOO" because that's what Rachael Ray calls it and I thinks she's so stinkin' obnoxious.

I totally forgot to put product in my hair today and it is just a huge massive poofball. It got insanely hot here the last few days and now it's all humid and gross. And my hair looks like crap, so I've been wearing a hat all day.

I'm a hair product snob. Discovered lately that hair serum is the sh*t. It turned my dry, coarse, flyaway mangy hair to super vibrant, healthy and moisturizing. I can't stop running my fingers through my hair bc it feels so soft and smells so good! hah

Perfect that I can't really eat the dinner or smile when I meet people due to it being at the corner of my mouth.

For me, olive oil must be sold in a dark bottle to protect it. The color of the olive oil needs to have a green tinge at least (none of that yellow crap for me), and it needs to have a light, fruity smell. I bought an expensive, lousy olive oil at a fancy olive oil store once. And then I've bought Colavita in a regular grocery store, and it's actually pretty good. Different regions (Greece, Spain) can produce perfectly wonderful olive oils that don't match my description, but that's basically what I am personally looking for; mine are generally Italian. Now I want some! Also, pomegranate balsamic sounds awesome!

Not the Official Fascia Blaster. But the same concept:
