#136- I’m the one on the ledge…

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about finances, which isn’t super fun if you’re not blessed with frugal genes.  I do however, have plenty of jeans. I wondered: just how bad can it be?  So: I figured out my net worth. I signed up for an account (ironically, it’s free) here.  You can manage your…

#135- Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful

I went to a wedding last weekend, and courtesy of Johanna, I got a lesson in applying make-up. During the session. Please ignore the fact that my hair resembles Sonic the Hedgehog. The end product: Jo’s make-up always looks flawless, although I’m sure it helps when you’re starting with porcelain skin.  I’ve shared tips with…

#134- Is this how Dwayne Johnson made his name?

A few years ago I noticed a trend in airports in the southern United States- rocking chairs that lined the gate areas for our use in resting our tired traveling booties.  My mind always conjured an image of sitting on a veranda in Savannah (never been there), sipping on sweet tea and talking about the…

#133- Old School

My sister recommended this new thing in the planning stages of this whole endeavor. It made me giggle. I made a pineapple upside down cake. You may have thought these cakes were extinct and only viewed through tattered ancient Betty Crocker cook books. Oh no. They are very much alive. I had a bit of…

#132- Too much time on my hands

Apparently I was feeling like a voyeur on this day in Edinburgh, because in addition to devoting 20 minutes to the prepubescent street performer (see #131), I watched a statue be erected. This was pretty sweet. Fun factor: 7

#131- Street Humor

While in Edinburgh, I walked by a goofy looking 12 year-old kid who seemed to be setting up shop on right on the street. I stopped to gauge the situation. He didn’t have any audience as of yet, but was yelling advertisements like “come to the greatest show on Earth, ladies and gentlemen!” I’m the…

#130- Julia Child minus the Julia

This weekend, I baked brownies with a three year-old. I was supposed to be on a girls’ trip this past weekend, but got sick. This left time for many activities, including the previously mentioned mani/pedi (see #129). That same client didn’t seem to be as exhausted as I was after our beauty session, so we…

#129- Queen Bee

This weekend, I gave someone a manicure and pedicure. My client was very friendly and agreeable, although she did have the kind of dirt build-up in her nails that only accumulates as a result of excessive indifference and an active lifestyle. We went with her favorite color, “PINK!” The service was pro bono, and although…

Sabbatical

Dear Readers, I am sorry for the recent lack of postings. The main reason I haven’t been posting is because I suck. And although my head is gigantic in size, my brain capacity is fairly minute, which is hindering my ability to think of realistic new things for me to do.  I long for the…
