(Some internal pro vs. con debating, originally posted 5:19 PM Tuesday, May 1 2007.) (Persis Khambatta as Lt. Ilia. Clearly not me.) This will sound hopelessly obsessive, but it’s the truth: lately, I have found hair repulsive. Only one girl out of every 20 has hair that’s pretty enough to impress me, and I find […]
While I can’t be sure if clay masks are doing my skin any good… … they sure are entertaining. Kiss me, you fool!
As an antidote to yesterday’s “Hey everybody, check out my face paint” post…. Hey everybody, check out my naked face! These photos are completely unretouched. I even skipped my usual tweaking. The lighting in that bathroom must be very warm, I look significantly pinker face-to-face. An old boyfriend found me petty for taking such interest […]
This year for Halloween, I decided to stay home…. …put on a little makeup… … and just be myselves. This reminded me that we, as social creatures in a culture with many taboos and dictates, perform for a live audience nearly every day. Here’s hoping your costume is comfortable. Happy Halloween!
(A post from my previous, now defunct blog, written September 28, 2007) ——————— The Mark of a Good Friend When I was a little girl, I dated Grackle. After one of our early dates, I discovered that I’d had [highly visible] food stuck in my teeth for HOURS. I was horrified. When cornered, Grackle admitted […]
We interrupt your regularly scheduled time-wasting to bring you this update from my ongoing taking photos to stylists series… Because three and a half months had passed since my last fateful haircut, my hair was the same length all over. I looked like a homely hedgehog. Not the look I was going for. Last Saturday, […]
Man, this Almay Smart Shade makeup is worthless. Either that, or I put all my makeup in a box under the car seat for our cross-country move, then forgot it for a few weeks. A few very, very sunny weeks. But seriously, I bought Almay Smart Shade foundation on Sarah Von’s recommendation, since we’re similarly […]
After reading about my infamous razor mishap, a reader named Thomas left the following comment: Did the same thing today :( Stupid me… Decided to go cut my own hair with a buzzer. Almost done, trimming the edges with the combless buzzer, I noticed a wisp of long hair and without even thinking, swoozz….bald […]
What is wrong with this picture? Aside from the lighting, exposure, composition, and pedicure? How about that mysterious dark spot on my largest toenail? While Dr. Google Images failed to reveal similar toenail conditions, Dr. Google was rife with stories about dark spots that proved out to be fungus and quickly spread to all other […]
Monday, I went to the dentist. Having not been since, oh, November of 2005, I figured this check-up would lead to more appointments, eight or ten fillings, several extractions, lots of shaming and guilt, and probably drain all my savings. But no. There’s one spot I need to floss more carefully (it wants to be […]
