Wear: Wireless Bras

It took decades of bra wearing, but I’ve seen the light. WIRE FREE BRAS. All the support of a regular bra, but without the underwire to get in your way and ruin your life. I was wearing some wireless bras I got at Costco, and they were perfectly fine… until they weren’t. I don’t know if it was because I bought them in winter and was wearing loose, heavy clothing, or if my knockers decided to get bigger, but I suddenly noticed the dreaded quad boob was happening, uh, all the time. I went to Nordstrom, had a lovely woman strap a bra to my naked chest, and found out that my dream underwire free bra was this one from Wacoal. I am a huge (HUGE) fan of Wacoal - they also make my favorite up-to-your-armpits while also impossibly lightweight underoos. I got one in black and one in light beige and now I’m ready to tackle life chest first.

Watch: Mulan Teaser Trailer

Mulan is one of my favorite Disney movies. Remember years ago when the live-action Mulan script was leaked and it was garbage? Well, we all moved on and now we have a teaser trailer for the AMAZING looking Mulan. The live-action version isn’t just a shot for shot remake of the animated movie. There will be a lot of changes (no Mushu, no Shang, no songs), BUT all the changes are to make it more true to both Chinese culture and the original story of Mulan. I also think this is beneficial to my fellow Mulan stans - we won’t have to compare the movies to one another, because they’re NOT the same. It’s two interpretations of the same story.

I’ve seen a tiny, tiny snippet of this movie and I’m already stoked to see it next spring. What will happen when the full trailer is released? I may weep.

And as a bonus, let’s take a moment to enjoy one the best Disney songs of all time:

Want: Security Camera

I have a Ring Doorbell, and it’s great to be able to see what’s going on outside my house without actually having to LOOK outside my house. But it only covers the front of my house. Sometimes I hear a noise or the motion sensor light goes on in the backyard and I want to know what’s up - without actually going outside and surely ending up like Drew Barrymore’s boyf at the beginning of Scream. Since I have a Ring Doorbell, I’m thinking I’d also want a Ring security camera and light for my backyard. Then I just have to fire up the app on my phone and I can make sure there isn’t some Ghostface out there.
