Old Dogs and Blue Fuzzy Slippers
I don't think I'm crazy. I might have some quirk that people notice, but pretty much I feel I am in the realm of normal. So how about you? Do you look at people and wonder what the hey? Is he whacked? Too may Margaritas maybe? Wrong medication?
What makes people have a sense of entitlement? Why do families fight? Why is there a nut in every family? Who took the last cookie and why can't you admit to it?
I think about these things, it helps me to not think about the things that really bother me.
I saw a video of a police artist drawing women's picture's. He drew one from a bystander and one from the description of the woman herself. The results were astonishing. The women described themselves in a way that portrayed them much more unattractive then they actually were, in every single case. So what does that say about self image? I thought I was the only one who saw a fat person in the mirror no matter what I weigh! Don't it make you want to say, Huh?
I hate my hair. It's baby fine and breaks before it gets past chin length. So! I decided upon a hairy adventure. I bought a shoulder length human hair full lace wig. Now that I had it, what to do with it. I wanted low lights, took it to a beautician I knew and trusted. She charged me $185 to put a few streaks in the wig. After I recovered from that shock, my new hair and I set off to be united.
The process sounds daunting. First they put tape below your hairline, then add some glue to the tape. Next, the wig is applied. The wigs generally are custom made to fit the head. I was amazed at the results. You cannot tell that it is a wig, and it can be pulled up and worn in a high ponytail. I am very proud of my new tresses. No pix except in my cell phone. And it is very convenient. Just brush and go. Every two weeks, it is removed, cleaned and reapplied.
We'll see how long I love it or if it ends up on Ebay as a friend of mine predicted.
This has nothing to do with hair, but I wanted to post Bianca's shiny brand new banner.
Excerpt from On Wings of Desire:
My latest release, MOTHER’S DAY BABIES, is coming very
appropriately at a time when we celebrate Mother’s Day.
Widowed for seven years, Barbara Ramsay lives and breathes for her five grownup daughters and their babies. She's also used to chatting over the phone with her good friend, Lou. But why has he invited her to come to Paris with his TV Network crew?
Powerful News Director, Lou Roland is certainly not marriage material, yet he has suddenly decided he wants Barbara in his arms. Not an easy task when his pretty confidante from Kentucky proves so difficult to date--unless he follows her rules. Can the over-fifty confirmed bachelor and the widow loyal to her husband's memory find true love and share a future?
But the theme interested me. I used it in this book and analyzed the feelings of the young surrogate mother, those of her parents, and those of the couple hiring her.
“Let’s go.” Deep in his thoughts and dejection, he let her draw him to the waiting room.
“Her mother was pretty too and knew how to use her beauty to manipulate everyone. If only she’d had a tenth of your integrity and compassion,” he growled, cursing the events that had interrupted the beginning of his new relationship with Barbara.
How on Earth had sperm and insemination replaced kiss and feelings in their conversation? To think Barbara had melted in his arms the night before, and now they were discussing the subject most apt to smother any passion they felt.
