I also had a wax treatment, but with my eyeorbws. It was painful at first, but after a few minutes I could finally handle it. It was definitely worth it and I might try it again later! I love all your comics and I look forward to reading another.

Idk..I kind of like them. Usually they're kind of big because I like when a guy sucks on my neck rellay hard (fetish XD) and sometimes it's like a reminder. And I don't mind people knowing cuz everyone does it. It's my mom who I don't want bugging me about it. =_= Nice comic ? [url=]stgmhngi[/url] [link=]dizpjclz[/link]

The exhibit was caleld Picasso to Warhol. There were works by those two artists as well as Matisse, Leger, Pollack, and Calder. The exhibit provided some insight into the birth and rise of modernism. My mom's side of the family is from Pittsburgh, so I remember visiting that museum when I was a teenager. I would LOVE to go back again. I think the Jackie O and Elvis prints are some of my favorites too. I also love his cat drawings.
