    In terms of make up, if you're looking to try new things, I highly suggest the brand elf. My cousin who's a make up artist introduced me to them a few years back. They're super cheap but are also pretty decent in terms of quality. I use their liquid eyeliner pen every day (easier than liquid eyeliner for the liquid look) and can be found online or through CVS, Target, and probably some other drug stores. Perfect if you want to try something but aren't sure what you want to use/how to use it.

    Youtube tutorials are a lifesaver when it comes to hair/make up/nails. If you find that you're not good at something, keep doing it. Like, if you're not good at doing your nails, just do it every week and eventually you get good at it.

    Bethany and Barbaras hair looks really nice this episode.


    Anyway, i personally think that most people are a mix of introvert and extrovert,I feel like at certain points I'm raring and ready to go out and do stuff and hang out but other times you need to like recharge and be like "ehh not feeling it right now".

    My worst job ever - in high school my friend and I were hired to landscape this retired engineer's property on about a half acre in NE Albuquerque. If you know anything about desert terrain at mile high elevation, it's just goat-heads, tumbleweeds, lizards, shrubs, and 30 mph winds. The guy would wake up at 645 am, and while in his whitey tighties and nothing else, he'd tell us what our job was for the day. At the end of the week, he'd pay us cash, and every time he did he'd call us into his office where he kept his cash box. This was conveniently located in the same drawer as his gun, which he would stare at for a sec before saying "Hmmm.... Ok how much do I owe you this week?" 


    Best piece of advice he gave us: while digging a trench for a sprinkler system, he stops my friend and I and tells us this - "Stop working for a min and imagine there's a blimp above you. In this blimp there's about 5 well educated, hard working people. You want those people to be saying 'Look at those fine young white boys workin' smart. What they're actually saying right now is 'Look at these two n*****s digging a shitty hole.' Let's try to make those people in the blimp happy eh? That trench needs to be perfect." Neither one of us are African American, not that that makes it any better...... senile old racist bastard. Though I do still think there's a blimp above me from time to time and work harder

    Funny how Barbara said she tries to avoid downtown Austin and SXSW like the plague, but then she ends up running some snapchat and shows a bunch of stuff for it.   laughing

    I'm turning 30 this year and have only just recently started wearing makeup everyday because I feel like I look like a teenager without it. I'd say start watching makeup tutorials, especially those done by professionals and people who have similar complexions as you. They're relaxing to watch, and if you see things done enough times you'll have the confidence to try yourself.

    I agree with Gus, eat whatever you want whenever you want. Which is why it's so annoying that McDonald's won't serve me a double quarter pounder and a large french fry at 8 in the morning.

    I'm Alyssa, and I relate a lot to that question from Alissa! I'm 22 and still have no idea how to use make up. It's a work in progress. Clothing-wise, there are a lot of styles I like but I think they look weird on me. For me it's a balance of finding things that I like, but still wanting to look and feel like myself

    I wish there was an awesome mod. This was my favorite episode so far. Partly since it starred my favorite personality at RT Gus, but also for the content. I loved the new Roast or Toast segment. Thats gonna be a ton of fun! It felt very intimate today, more than usual maybe because you are all closer friends. I'm not sure, it's presumptuous for me to say that but regardless it was really chill and delightful.

    Yeah i am 100% introverted. I nodded my head in unity so much as they described introverts and how they live their lives that my neck actually hurts. If there was a dojo of introversion i would absolutely nominate Gus as the sensei. I have learned so much from him.

    When I was first introduced to Bethany in the pilot run of Always Open I felt pretty meh about her. I didn't dislike her, but I didn't particularly like her.


    Now she's one of my absolute favorite recurring guests on this show. I must've been an idiot. <3

    Orrrrrr instead of using Square Space you could hire a college student who's good at styling websites who recently graduated............................*cough*............................oh you thought I was talking about me? No, I still got another semester left. But there are some starving college students looking for work.

      We have a ridiculous "bathroom" bill that lawmakers are trying to pass here in Texas. Wanted to show that I'm completely against it.

    Wait. Mariel and Barbara don't know Glo Worms and Pound Puppies? Bullshit! Fucking liars! Those were around in the 90's! Barbara especially should know. She's older AND I remember going to Zellers Toy Land and seeing half the isle of that shit sitting around for years and years. I would be surprised if her local Zellers wasn't the same.
