You Know These Reckless Thoughts of Mine are Following You

Hey, my coworker finally came through with her New Year's Eve photos. This was the only one that turned out alright. Here's me ordering the first drink that led to my demise that night. My friend L. is in front drinking Busch lite over ice. Yes, you heard that right.

I didn't do much but geek-out tonight. Of course I did all the running around with the girls I had to do - which was a lot. I switched nights with my ex, so I can go to my friend K's birthday party tomorrow night. But after I got home, I drank beer and played Galaga. Erik called me from Chicago where he was geeking-out with his friends watching Youtube videos and searching the beautiful, wonderful internets to find this picture of a kid that looks like Chris Farley:

Seriously, how fucking sweet is that? They also sent me a link to a guy in Mexico who does these crazy black velvet paintings, but you all know I'm way too lazy to put links in my posts. Just know that they were all wonderful in their unbridled cheesiness.

On Sunday I actually had time with both of my girls. I took them to the mall so Stinky (who is the girliest out of us) could help me buy make-up. Of course, she found some other friends, and left me and Coadster to fend for ourselves and Coadster is worse about the girly stuff than I am. When I asked her what color eye shadow I should get, this is what she said: "Mom. How would I know? I'm such a tomboy I had to ask a gay guy to do my make-up for show choir." I opted not to buy any and just use any of the 500 colors Stinky already had at home. It was safer that way.

If it's any consolation; I can't buy make-up to suit me either.

Busch Lite over ice....the ice probably tastes more like beer than that crap...ick (you should see the bad beer face I am making right now)

That kid does look like Chris Farley, yikes

I wasn't aware that there were 500 different types of make-up. Wow, I've just had my world view altered.

Mrs. Big Hairy Woman said...

Well somewhere in the colours of 500 you will find one that suits you... That is so funny....

Mrs. Big Hairy Woman said...

That just might Chris Farleys love

Lol, I was like that too, I didn't start wearing makeup until I started college (which only included mascara and chapstick), and I didn't learn how to apply friggin eyeshadow until my senior year. Heh :)

Never underestimate the importance of having gay friends.

Too funny.

OK, now that I see you are actually responding to comments, I'll commetn. :-) Not that that should make a difference. It's just my excuse.

An ex-roommate of mine used to drink bud lite over ice too. I thought it meant she was an alcoholic.

As I get older and grayer I should start thinking about makeup and dyeing my hair, but I just can't be bothered. I just try to drink lots of water to do makeup from the inside out.

I think I buy the Almay eye shadow. If your eyes are a certain color, they have three shades of eyeshadow in one case, and the colors are supposed to compliment your eye color.

That kid does look a bit like Chris Farley!

Make-up? No, never. Well, very rarely.

my grandmother drinks coors over ice. Coors because she was born in colorado, ice because she's 82.

beer with ice... i just threw up a little. she should step up to the plate and order something with more authority... like a Jager Bomb or something...

LA said...

Oh my goodness. That picture is freakn' HILARIOUS! It's so funny that I can't help but wonder if it's fake or not.
And then I look at it again and bust a gut.

Love your New Years Eve picture. You look like you were having fun.

I don't really do make-up. I know I am not a fresh faced youngster who can get away with that anymore, but I just can't get into the whole process of it...

Chance said...

I am so happy for you that things are going better for you. Your blogging voice is much happier these days.

Makeup counters are the scariest places in the world. They should set up counseling centers right beside them and all the psychs would make a fortune.

You are too beautiful to go out.

I just had the makeup freakout this week too. I have one small bag of makeup and I've had it all for a long time, and my eye doc says I have to toss all theneye stuff, and I never wear any of it, anyway, so I don't really want to replace it, but I should, right? and then people will take me more seriously, right?

Ugh. I just can't do it.

And eye shadow?! I have no idea about that stuff. The closest thing I get to that is those fat eye pencils in a nondescript beige-ish color. I put one line above each top eyelash and call it a day.

I'd be happy to show you my technique sometime.

They say you should go get a consultation at like the fancy clinique or estee lauder counter of a dept. store, atake notes, then buy similar colors/products at Walgreens, but I don't know if I could stand that.

Ok, enough girly talk.

Maybe you're just not trying hard enough.


Yeah. I like beer cold, but I prefer a frosty mug for that.

Mr Atrocity,

I'm just glad I could enlighten you.


You'd think, huh?


I'm still not sure how eyeshadow works, but I'm willing to try.


I certainly don't underestimate the importance of my gay friends.


I'm not sure what that beer over ice thing says about people...


Thanks for the info.


I never wore it until I was in my thirties.


At least she had her reasons.


You know I've never done a jaeger bomb before. It might be grounds to kick me out of Iowa.


Even if it is fake, it's still hilarious.


I know. There is maintenance involved.


Thanks. My blogging voice comes and goes I think.

Booda Baby,

I'm scared of make-up counters too.


I doubt wearing make-up will make people take you more seriously. You're totally cute without any paint.
