    I always get lost when I travel so I know how it feels - I always rely on the kindness of strangers to situate me. I hope the tourist goes back to wherever she lives with a glowing experience of NYC.

    Interestingly enough, I am a person who believes in getting lost so that I can find out exactly where I am, as bizarre as that may sound! I've been blessed with an unusually good sense of direction. Used to be, when I was bored, I'd go out and try to get lost just to have something to do. Gas it too expensive to play that game, too often, today.

    I also love to read maps/navigate, but I don't own a map.

    Too old for glitter? NO SUCH THING! Good for you. You've inspired me to go buy some glitter makeup for the upcoming 4th of July celebration.

    Isn't it wonderful having the confidence that experience, and the years, bring?! That really makes me happy!!

    I hardly wear makeup, and some would say I'm too old to go without it! So you glitter if it you love it, girlfriend!

    I just had a camping weekend with my family I know with my two girls growing up that camping weekends will get harder and harder to put together with summer jobs and such so I'm cherishing every moment spent with my two sweetie pies. I love them so much!

    How bad does it hurt if a glitter-fleck gets in your eye?

    Not that bad at all. It says you shouldn't put it around your eyes. But I don't follow glitter rules!
