under-appreciated potential superpowers

Magical Alterations

If you could alter your clothes and possibly also drapes and upholstery without the use of a sewing machine and a time investment, think about how great things would be! How well your clothes could fit! How much easier shopping would be! And as an added bonus, you could make home-made (MAGICALLY) American Girl clothes for your friends with children. Cheap gifts!

guess the show

Rich, fake-breasted, leathery-skinned mothers and wives in a major city are taped being bitchy to each other, their husbands and their children. In one manifestation, all of the women look the same except for the brunette and in another version, all the women are black except one. The show features much crying, screaming and arguing over petty things.
