The Haves vs. The Have Nots

A few weeks ago, I had to make a trip to Los Angeles for a charity event one of my dearest, dearests was chairing. It was a kinda swanky event—an afternoon garden party at one of those big old movie star casas. Being the gigantic queen that I am, I decided that I couldn’t just drive up to the valet parker in ANY OLD CAR. No, no. Miss thing needed a luxury rental.

Upon arriving at the airport, I saw my “luxury” ride awaiting. A champagne colored Lincoln MKZ. Mary Sweet Mother of Jesus. What an ugly piece of grandmother shit. I thought for a moment about asking to swap, but then just went with it.

The interior was all burled, blonde wood and soft, buttercream leather. The car was essentially a Taurus playing dress up. And it was obviously designed for the blue-haired female population. I thought, “okay, I’m not THAT big a queen,” but accepted my fate and figured that I would probably still get some valet attitude.

The car was pretty tricked out, with gadgets and screens that no senior citizen would ever be able to navigate (yeah, I’m a hater. So what? I’ll be an AARP card-carrying senior before you know it. So I’m getting my licks in while I can.)

One feature I found particularly odd was an audible beep beep beep whenever the MKZ got too close to another car. This was usually in effect during parking maneuvers, but did sound off on other occasions.

For instance, when the homeless woman who was panhandling on the street got too close to my car. I almost laughed my ass off. The fucking alert went off. Cuz honey, nothing says luxury like protecting the occupants from the “undesirables.” The HORROR! Shudder to think.

Oh, and by the way… I almost forgot to mention—there was no valet parking at the event.

Serves me right.

The Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' recent drastic reorganization of the national security is one sign to this effect. As a matter of fact, there are some news stories that have made such a strong impact on the society that some of them have even won accolades. That may be, the temperature that is certainly most effective for catching fish. Kanchan Kumar Vaidya writes about Newspapers , Hindi Samachar , Online Hindi news.

Nanokeratin locks onto the hair, forming a fine, smooth coat of keratin.
Habits die hard and whatever your regime has been in the past, you do need to have a good look around at what is on offer for different hair types and textures.
Generally, these products are more expensive than their watered-down counterparts, but
you can find a few affordable pure silicone hair products
