Resolutions for 2013

      1 Comment on Resolutions for 2013

Damn. Is it really 2013? The future is pretty rad. I’m totally bring back rad. Dating, diet, and fitness ads abound on TV which means a new year is about to begin. It’s interesting that we don’t see many commercials about investing, saving money or retirement planning. Maybe that’s not as sexy as well, sex. Last year I made some… Read more »

It’s too early for this crap.

      3 Comments on It’s too early for this crap.

I’m not really a morning person. I get up early because I like to find a decent parking spot at work. Like everyone else, I’m pretty much just going through the motions between 5:30 AM an 7:00 AM. This morning, I probably scared my roommate with a few screeches. There was a fly in my bathroom. Now, stop snickering. First… Read more »

I’m a wedding guest and I need a fabulous dress!

It’s wedding season. Wait, how come weddings have a season? That just seems odd. Why is summertime more apt to be when people get married? Personally, I like the fall better than the summer. The weather is nicer, at least in California, plus I hate the heat. Sweating when I’m just standing around somewhere pisses me off. Sweating in a… Read more »

>Beauty Gone Wild: Dammit, women. Calm down!

> I love makeup. It makes me feel pretty. But there are limits to what I will do to my body to improve my self image. The other day I read this article on Yahoo! about women who go on this nose tube feeding diet before their weddings. Are you kidding me? This is sad and insane. It’s one freaking… Read more »

The Price of Beauty

      No Comments on The Price of Beauty

I know this is a stupid platitude, but anyone reading this please tell yourself you are beautiful. Beautiful women everywhere hate themselves because something in their brains keeps whispering that they are ugly.  Stop it.  Stop it right now. Yes, I do the same thing to myself.  Mostly, I’ve noticed it’s my hormones going crazy.  When I was younger, I… Read more »
