I just don’t know why people do it. I have so many hobbies that I collect any number of items in order to do. I would still keep all of my tools even if I wasn’t a contractor and I prefer my kids have lots of toys to play with rather than just an iPad. And all that’s nothing compared to all the tools, toys and weird items in my kitchen that I use on a daily basis to keep everyone fed.

#11

#17

Nope.


#18

But apparently they have a need for way too much eye makeup. She wants to be a minimalist, she might want to pare that down, too.

I never expected Marilyn Manson’s Bowie-inspired Berlin sabbatical to turn into this.
