Not the highest quality picture, but sufficient “proof” that Alana’s toes have indeed been lacquered. Come to think of it, I don’t know that I can remember a time that her mother had her toenails painted. Fingernails? Maybe twice in the last 15 years?
I, of course, had my own fingernail-painting phase. But that was just one fingernail, and it was “art” dammit (that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!). And I was young. With too much time on my hands. It couldn’t have been too weird, as, my senior year in high school, my girlfriend’s mother went in search of green nail polish so that my prom design would appropriately match her daughter’s dress (she was successful)!
Random MS Windows/Office Tip: If you have a bunch of windows open on your computer, and you’re trying to get to your desktop (or you’re trying to work with just a couple of those windows and want the rest minimized), you can quickly minimize all of the windows by holding down the Windows key on your keyboard (the one with the little 4-part waving flag thingy) and pressing “M” (for “minimize”). This will minimize all of the open windows. Windows installs with an icon in the QuickLaunch tray for “Show Desktop” that does the same thing, but I prefer the keyboard shortcut.
