I've used this exact same product since I was in the 8th grade. I'm now 31. I love everything about it -- how simply it is to apply, how long it lasts, how it looks, and its staying power. I get compliments weekly on my eyeliner and always direct them to Almay Liquid Line Eyeliner.
I have a lab and a lab/shar pei mix. The furminator works great on my lab, and although the undercoat fur we get off of my lab mix would suggest that she should be bald, she still sheds like we never brushed her. It does an amazing job getting the undercoat, but there is usually still going to be loose fur ready to shed. I always tell myself that the fur I remove with the furminator is at least fur I won't have to vacuum up later.
What an amazing story. I'm also grateful that Green portrays their story in such a positive light. There's no, "woe is me" feeling about it -- I loved their, "you have cancer - deal with it" attitudes.
After staying away from these books out of principle, a colleague of mine innocently gave me his wife's copy. And into the rabbit hole I fell. They're engaging, easy to understand, creative, and inventive. I recommend them, but go to the used book store. :)
Loved reading these books. I definitely got attached to the characters and found myself wanting there to be a 4th book (still have my fingers crossed). The first one is definitely a little slow to get into and there are a TON of characters, so keep that in mind and organize thoughts or notes accordingly.
These little guys are great if you just want to have a drink or two socially or when it's hot outside, but they cram in TONS of sugar. Some flavors are so sweet that it's difficult to drink more than 2 or 3.
I was given this book as a gift for my high school graduation from my English teacher. In my opinion, it's a great coming of age story and Lamb takes on a huge undertaking by writing from a young female's POV. I think he does a great job from that perspective and that his bold risk paid off.
