Excuse Me While I Kick My Own Ass

As if.

One week since I've posted.

I'm completely disgusted.

I imagine Rock Chef may quit talking to me soon.

Anyways, I was going to list a bunch of crap about why I was so busy - stuff like office drama, watching E, running, neglecting Ramona, doing laundry, cleaning and all that other stuff - but I realized that my life is always like that. And so is everyone elses. So no point whining about it because we're all in the same boat.

Instead I decided to give you a little photo montage, because I know you all really want to see that...okay, I know you probably don't...especially because the pictures aren't anywhere near cool, but this is the mood I was in today, so ha!

Last night I bought some new mascara. It promised not only amazingly long-looking lashes, but a sparkle to boot! I couldn't resist the idea of having sparkly lashes, so I bought it and decided to try it out this morning.

So here we go:

I always have a good time blow-drying my hair.
I'm weird, what can I say.

Straighten, straighten, straighten - story of my life.

So check this out - do you see any super sparkly, glimmery, fantastical magic-ness coming from my eyelashes?
Yeah, me neither.

And then I was like, "Ali did you really think your eyelashes were going to be sparkly and gorgeous if you bought this mascara?"

The answer was no, I didn't. But I thought for that kind of packaging I would at least see maybe a hint of a glimmer.

Ah, no matter. They did their job and got me to buy the stupid stuff.

Happy Tuesday!

Me stop talking to you? Who are you trying to kid? I was just about to send you an email asking how you were, etc, but now I don't need to!

Mascara - the ads for this drive me nuts. I don't know about your part of the world but over here they have ads that show amazingly wonderful lashes and there, at the bottom in small writing is the disclaimer - pictures show false lashes that have been Photoshopped too! In other words, it is all b*$$*£&s! Ah well, it helps to keep the economy moving!

And you DO have very good lashes, I'll give you that!

You have as much crap on your refrigerator as we do.

How do you keep the whites of your eyes so white? Bleach?

Ha! You're so cute! The only kind of mascara I use is L'Oreal Voluminous in blackest black. I love the stuff.

PS - You look dreamy, is it for D or me? ;)

I would have bought sparkly mascara too. I'm always on the look-out for something that enhances my lashes. (Just bought something called Lash Stiletto. Good stuff.)

Were you blowdrying in the kitchen?

I have been waiting for you to post.
That was very insightful about everybody being in the same boat playing catch up. It's true.

I don't know anything about mascara. But I always notice when Laundry Fairy is wearing it.
Doesn't advertising suck when products don't deliver as promised? You feel short changed.
