This post is about contradictions.
But now, more than two months after I started composing the post in my head, I still haven't been able to complete a single thematically coherent paragraph about it. Not a single paragraph.
So I'm just posting pictures in a supremely overachieving literalization of "show, don't tell." Hopefully it makes sense.

Yellow, Green, and Glitter Nail Polishes
Revlon 'Sunshine Sparkle' (bright, pale yellow), essie 'Navigate Her' (creamy, slightly dusty green), and some no-name-brand shimmer top coat for sparkle. You can't see the sparkle in the photos, but it's there.

Yes, that is parsley in my pho. I can't stand cilantro.
I didn't know you could substitute quinoa for rice noodles. Nor that organic sriracha existed outside the script for the next episode of Portlandia. Nor that parsley can be a proxy for cilantro. It looks very delicious regardless and I may buy some quinoa because I'd like to scoop something from the bulk bins. It makes me feel "natural".
