It only makes me look fat.
Time to tone my thighs-- gotta lose another size, yeah!
What a way to wanna be…
Being female, I know that one of the things we worry most about is how we look. I used to get a kick out of that Special K cereal commercial where all the guys were saying the girl things. The guy rises, reaches behind him and looks back and says, “Do these jeans make my butt look big?” Towards the end of the commercial a screen comes on that says: Men don’t obsess about these things. Why do we? I don’t know. But we do.
Personally, I think men worry about looks just as much as women do but stereotypically women are portrayed to worry more. I know both men and women who worry about their weight and how they look. Really, how can anyone avoid it? We’re a society obsessed with looks. Almost everyone worries at one time or another about how they look, especially as we get older. There’s the thinning hair, wrinkles where there once were none, bigger hips, no waist, sagging body parts, and the list goes on and on.
Now it’s time for the rest of the body. All I need is goat’s milk. I’ll soak in a goat’s milk bath. How many quarts of goat’s milk make a tub full? Is it water and goat’s milk? Will sheep milk work? I have sheep outside. Gee…I don’t know, but I’m not supposed to rinse off when I’m finished. Yuck-o. I’m beginning to picture a walking food pyramid! I can dry off at least and after I’m dry I’ll spray a light layer of PAM all over my skin so it will look dewy and shiny but not greasy. It’s suggested I get the plain PAM and not the butter flavored/scented kind so I won’t smell like food. After the mayo, honey and goat’s milk I’m not sure it would matter.
I have makeup tips too. I’ve got a burned match to use for that smoky eye look that’s popular right now. It’s going good until my hand slips and I poke myself in the eye. Now I have grayish black streaks down my face. I guess it will be okay. It’s supposed to look a little smudged. I’m almost ready except for the Vaseline for my eyelashes. I’m going to put it on so my eyelashes will get a sexy, subtle sparkle. That is if it doesn’t get in my eyes and I can’t see. But it’s successful and I see my hair has some problems. I pour 7Up into a squirt bottle, and spray onto my damp hair. The sugar is going to give my hair grip plus add sexy texture! But there are still a few of those annoying flyaway strands so I grab a Bounce and run it through my hair. I’ll keep it in my purse for later so my hair will be frizz free all day long!

Exfoliate, look great!
Feel guilty 'bout what you ate.
You're buyin' all the books
To learn the latest looks, yeah,
What a way to wanna be.
Working on the green/blue bias shawl. Again. I finished it, put beads on one side and didn’t like it. I think it was eight to ten feet long. And the beads were heavy so it pulled it more. I used number 17 needles but it was too loose. I took it out and am re-doing with size 15. So far I like it. I also finished the strips for another ball. I just have to see if I can get it together now! Wonder if knitting counts for exercise?
Moisturize, exercise, erase the
Rings around your eyes.

What a way to wanna be!

It's not worth it...
