In a concession to my rapidly-approaching 30th birthday, about a month ago I started wearing makeup every day. Well, at least on work days. Ok, almost every day on work days. Occasionally I just can't be bothered. I've never really been a makeup kind of girl. I went through the whole baby blue eye shadow phase in Junior High, but that was about the end of it. If I was going out to dinner somewhere nice I might occasionally see my way clear to break out the eyeliner and lipstick, but not always. I've had a few rounds of trying to at least wear mascara to work every day, but I always end up forgetting and giving up.
So I've changed my ways. Now, I'm talking pretty basic stuff here - no four different shades of eye shadow for me - but I am doing things like using foundation, which was a major step for me. I don't think it's really obvious, but I do think I definitely look different. Nobody has noticed. Nobody. Not one single, solitary person. At first I wondered if I just looked like a clown and people were being nice, but there are people in my life who would let me know. So now I think that it doesn't really look any different and I am wasting my time. Either that, or possibly nobody actually looks at me. I'm wearing a clown nose all day today to test that theory - I'll let you know how it goes.
As a side effect, however, I now have two big honking zits on my chin. I've named them Albert and Victoria, because really they are so big and red and shiny they deserve to be royalty. I blame the makeup entirely. I'm sure it has nothing whatsoever to do with stress or the fact that I have been forgetting to use my Magic Zit Potion or that I haven't gone to the gym in 2 weeks or the Crazy Random Hormone Mood Swing pills that I was taking (in that they tend to cause crazy random hormone mood swings, not that they are intended to treat crazy random hormone mood swings).
Also, how is it that I totally slack off on the gym thing for 2 weeks, ok, 2 and a half weeks, and lose 4 pounds? And also how is it that I lose 4 pounds and yet my butt gets bigger? Can anyone explain that to me, or should I donate my butt to science? And since we are already speaking of my butt, I have a pulled butt muscle. From bowling. How embarrassing is that?
I'm just so girlie today - hopefully it will clear itself up soon.
