Praise Be to the Aqua Net

My brother asked for photographs of my 70’s hair. Here they are. Sadly, these do not do justice to the true fullness of our coiffures or the baby blueness of our eyeshadow. The hair was large and, without a doubt, highly flammable, while the eyeshadow was breath taking and frosty.
The back looked better than the front. You don’t even want to know how many layers of ozone were damaged during the creation of this hair-do.  I haven’t worn this much hairspray since 1987. I think my neck is sprained from the weight of it.
I love how serious we all look, and how Karen is looking at her walkie-talkie like she’s trying to decide if this is a call she wants to take in the middle of our photo shoot, but what I love the most is how Lori looks like she was born to be a Charlie’s Angel.  She's a natural. I wonder if Charlie has any openings.
{Karen, Lori, Darcy, and Me}

*This concludes Hair Week. Join me Monday when I tell you how The Pioneer Woman stole my husband.

I don't always dress up for Halloween, but when I do, I use Aqua Net

1.  In preparation for my role tomorrow as one of Charlie's Angels I surveyed 16 year old girls and 65 year old women (the demographics I assume to have the best knowledge of these things) to find out which hairspray I should purchase to keep my Farrah feathering in place all day. Never would I have guessed that after 40 years of scientific advances in haircare my granny's old favorite would be the winner. Young and old alike agree, for all day hold, aerosol Aqua Net can't be beat.

2.  I never get tired of these commercials. Everytime I hear them on the radio I crack up. "He once taught a German Shepard to speak English."~"People hang on his every word, even the prepositions."
3.  These pictures are for Karen, because, as she stated in her comment yesterday, while short and gray might not be the look I'm going for, it looks great on most men. I could not agree more.

Serenity Now

Every morning before I start working I read the news and check my reader. I like to make sure I'm on top of important world events, you know, celebrity divorce news, the latest fashion trends, and who got booted from Dancing with the Stars. While I'm at it I always check my own blog. You know, just in case.

In case of what I couldn't say. So far no one has broken in and posted without my knowledge. No matter how hard I've wished for them to. You'd think I could get a leprechan to stop in every now and again, I mean, it's their off season, right?

Because I am so famous and interesting, I always feel like I owe some kind of explanation when I haven't written for a while. Which is silly, the truth is I write for me and I have wanted to write, but it's been a hard week and I suck at serious. So there. With any luck I'll be back to my "charming" self on Monday.

Today's post is brought to you by the number 4.

As in, for reasons I cannot explain I woke up at 4 a.m. and was unable to go back to sleep, so naturally I spent 2 hours using my time wisely.

If I were a 10 year old boy I would TOTALLY be begging to get this rug for Christmas. Although nowadays most 10 year old boys probably would not recognize a Wampa rug if they were standing on it. It's really sort of tragic the how the youth of today takes The Force for granted.
Also, the Boba Fett backpack.....

Or C-3PO in need of repair.  

If I were looking for the perfect Christmas gift for my favorite sister (and I know you are) I'd bet she'd be down with any one of these items. But most especially the first one. It's nifty.

 If I were a cat I would find a way to have a catalog from this place sent to my home so my owners could set me up in kitty style.  And if I were a cat I'm pretty sure I could handle the requesting of a catalog, because, well, duh, cats.  They can do stuff.

*StarWars stuff found at ThinkGeek
*MadMen stuff found on Amazon
*Crazy kitty stuff found at Suncatcher

You know what you like about me?

I don't shy away from the important questions.

Like this-- Yesterday I'm waiting in line at the grocery story and I see~

And I said to myself, "huh?"

I want (need) to know, what in the world is she doing? I'll be honest, I don't know Oprah personally, but for some reason this cover makes me uncomfortable, it doesn't seem natural for her. I'm usually pretty good at reading a person's body language (not really) but for the life of me I cannot figure what message she's trying to send. Is she being serene? Sensual (you know, with the shoulder and all)? Is she just really tired from being the Master of the Universe for so long? Do you think Gayle put her up to it? Am I reading too much into it? Spending too much time thinking about it?

As if.

I could be wrong...

....but I think we have enough hot sauce.  I'm told each has it's "own" flavor and  "purpose".
I'm not necessarily convinced.
