eh, 37 is the new 27 right?
I told my mother that I didn't mind the 3 so much, I am used to the 3... it is the 7 that I don't like. Odd numbers are tough, they sound so much older than the even numbers for some reason. 34 sounds so much younger than 43 doesn't it?
Overall it was a pretty good day. Everyone I love called me and made me laugh in some way. Cousin Steve had me laughing because we were making plans for my weekend in the Chicago area which includes drinking, drinking... uhm, pizza, drinking and tattoos. OH-and the best part of that weekend is that I am not takin' the little people that suck the life out of me on a daily basis. I love my children-Good God I love them-I just need to run away from them for a day or two so that I can continue to love them.
Emma stormed into the bathroom last night while I was, uh, occupado, and said "Mama? When are we going to celebrate your birfday?" I responded that we are not. I explained that I didn't want to celebrate, I was happy with the way it was, and she looked at me and frowned and said "But Mama... how are you going to grow if we don't celebrate your birthday?" Ahhh, young grasshopper, you will learn that when you are 37 the only growing that will take place happens in the outward fashion and not the upward.
So the kids sang to me and gave me hugs and kisses... yeah, sweet. I would have preferred some diamond earrings, but they are only kids. They won't be able to afford diamond earrings for me until they are in their teens.
wankette gave me a pic of Chad Kroeger over at Threedonia. I quickly printed off 100 copies of it and rolled in them.
And please, if you do not find Chad Kroeger attractive or do not like his music, do not comment and tell me this. I am guessing that the male readers do not like him... just like they don't like any of the "manpictures" that I put on here... but tough, it was my birthday and I heart Chad Kroeger. Leave me alone.
TRO (otherwise known as Brunette Lover... Gasp) also gifted me this on his site. Go on down and pause The Muse so that you get the full effect of this little video. Play it as many times as you need to... I think I have hit replay about 241 times now. Mercy.
I knew that I needed to share it with you all the moment I drooled, er... saw it.
Okay... so with all of this birthday talk, I thought since I didn't get any presents from my family because no one really loves me (that sentence was solely for my mother because she asked me what I wanted and I said "Nothing" and she said "Oh sure, just like your father." Which in mom talk means that I will say I want nothing and then when I get nothing I will bitch and moan-which honestly is a present in and of itself.) I thought I would give a gift to you ladies.
That is right folks... it is time for another FREE GIVE AWAY!!!!!!
If you know me at all you will know that I have a passion for mascara and I have been on an eternal quest to find the perfect mascara-the kind that actually makes my eyelashes look like a movie star. I had decided to get eyelash extensions (yes-they have those!) but was waiting for a few months until Carl came home because really, what would be the point of having eyelashes that swayed in the wind if I didn't have a man around to bat them at. Well, one day when I was picking up some "necessities" at the Sephora counter I asked the lady in the white doctor's coat who isn't really a medical doctor but a doctor of make up... which is even better right? Anyway, I asked her if she had a good mascara because mine was just not cutting it and she handed me the best gift a woman could give another woman. It was as if she was handing me the secret to the woman vault and I was the chosen one.
Ladies... I introduce you to the one thing that will actually change your life. I know we hear that all of the time, but this really will change your life. I promise!
This mascara thickens and lengthens-and as a woman, I know how many times that promise has been made to us-and yes, I am still talking about mascara here. It is amazing... it is like an orgasm for your eyelashes. No kidding!
So I have Four... count em'... FOUR Benefit Bad gal Lash that is true to it's words when it shouts "it is like wearing false eyelashes without the glue." I completely, 100% stand by that description... I also like that they say it is for the naughty gal in us all. *giggle*
All you have to do is tell me which actress you find unbelievable. Yes... I said actress. I do this for a two reasons... #1 we are women and women can appreciate another woman without worrying about her place in the world as a heterosexual independent hot mama, and #2 I am getting so damn tired of the fellas around here emailing me and asking me to put some ladies on here... I mean, wtf Jimmy? This is the six-pack for women and you all know you come around just to get the coveted secrets about the opposite sex that confuses you and makes you feel all warm inside at the same time. But, I am nice and thought I would toss you men a bone.
So that is it... there will be 4 women with orgasmic eyelashes as a gift from ME on the day after my birthday.
I am so damn nice.
You have until Sunday night (as usual) and the winner will be chosen by my favorite mechanical device--the Random Generator and announced Monday morning with the pics of the actresses.
*scratching my head wondering just what I am getting myself into...*
