SENSITIVE PRINCESS SKIN DIARIES: I Stopped Washing My Face And Started Using These Weird-o Products Instead

People, it’s been too long! I want to say that I’ve been busy. But of course, we’ve all been busy, and I’ve managed to watch every single episode of Investigation Discovery’s “Solved” on Netflix, and now know too many fun facts about forensics. (Which surprisingly make for great icebreakers at parties. I love meeting fellow morbids!)

Amidst all of these changes that have been happening in my life as of late — doing different kinds of work, meeting new people, and continuing to figure out my way around a city that’s NOT on a grid system and that makes me uncomfortably dependent on my GPS — I’ve also altered a step in my beauty routine that has been fairly consistent since I hit puberty: I stopped washing my face.

I mean, who has time for that ish, amirite?

I KID. I would never use all of those annoying phrases in

Black Sheep Turn Their Backs on Family in Investigation Discovery’s New Series ‘Evil Kin’ (Video)

Investigation Discovery logo JUNE 2012

via press release:

From fiery red hair to long, lean legs, it’s amazing to witness unique traits handed down the family line. But when a relative exhibits characteristics of a more malevolent manner, it raises an age-old debate with an unsettling twist: could nature have produced an evil mutation or has nurture created a monster?

Premiering Wednesday, August 28 at 9 PM E/P, Investigation Discovery’s new series EVIL KIN examines families unraveled by the cruel conduct of a black sheep. Murder. Abuse. Cult activity. Mind games. Identity theft. Even incest. Every town has “that family” that incites fear as much as it fuels morbid curiosity. Whether it’s siblings from hell, the spawn of Satan, or an entire household of horrors, it’s not hard to dig up the root of all evil in these six episodes of family trees nearly cut down by

True-crime TV rampant in Washington

“Okay, now evil. Hold those eyes. Keep that evil face. Evil, evil, evil, evil and … smile!”

The eyes narrow, brows converge, the mouth hardens, before a jarring, toothy grin breaks out. Creepy.

The director, Cara Walters, is eking all possible menace out of her actor in this Germantown house. Mark D. Dailey, a retired businessman, has come down from New Jersey to play polygamist pedophile Arvin Shreeve for an episode of “Who the (Bleep),” one of the true-crime shows multiplying like goose bumps on the Silver Spring-based Investigation Discovery channel. Dailey got the part because he looks like Shreeve, a self-proclaimed prophet convicted in 1991 in Utah.

Dailey has already
