i bet you think that's pretty clever, don't you boy?

I'm trying to be more womanly. I'm also trying to be more frugal. The combination of the two led to yesterday's decision to wax my own eyebrows. I was suprisingly successful in removing stray eyebrow hairs. I was also successful in removing forehead. As in the skin. So today there is a rather unsightly red line over my right eye. It will probably fade, but if it doesn't it won't be the worst thing. In fact I think it might be advantageous in the future. In my later years I plan on turning crazy. Depending on my place of residence at that time, it's possible that I won't be the only cooky old bat in town, so a minor facial deformation will help set me apart. That way when the scared residents holding pitchforks speak in hushed tones of That Woman, they can modify and clarify by saying That Woman With The EyeBrow Waxing Scar, as to differentiate between That Woman With All The Cats or That Woman Who Thinks Corn Stalks Are People. Though I guess it is possible that I'll be all three of those women at once.


  1. Decided to post on this one, because I appreciated the reference to my favorite-ever band. =)

    Your blog is awesome! My wife and I get a huge kick out of it. It's the only blog I actually follow in any way, because after searching not at all (I'm not very good at the whole "internet" thing), it's the only one I've found that consistently gives me a good chuckle. If you compiled a bunch of paragraphs like this one and made a small book out of it, I would buy it. Also, I would tell my friends to buy it.

  2. Thank you so much. I love that you commented. Sometimes it feels like I'm writing to a void.

  3. No, Meg, I'm sure to be The Cat Lady.

    I'm also The Void.

    [Was that even a joke? Was it funny? Ugh.]


Don't be shy.
