My 80's alterego ala Motherhood Uncensored's call:



Sadly, I am not even sure what to say. But, yep. I really did look alot like that.

Here are some additional random things - just so you get your money for stopping by:

1. Working all day without reading other peoples blogs makes for a long ass day. (Fuck the apostrophes)

2. I often find myself transfixed by the TV Guide channel - the one where the choices scroll by with the wierd Muzac? It's on right now and has been for that last 45 mintues. I can't look away.

3. My boobs are KILLING Me. I assume, with this sign and the monster breakout that is occuring on my face that my period is right around the corner...or not. Damn PCOS!

4. I finished reading "Outlander" last night. I cried most of the way through the damn book. Why did no one warn me I would CRY???? I bought the next two on my way home from work tonight.

5. I am planning on running away and becoming a professional curler. I'm not kidding. I adore that sport.

6. I spent three hours waxing Terrance's dreadlocks last night. My fingers are now sore because of it. My fingernails gave up the ghost about hour 1.45. I was unaware when I took the marriage vows that his hair care would become some integral part of my life.

7. I have just about had it up to HERE with February. Move the fuck on.

8. HAH If you have read this and not yet participated , you are so Tagged Mo-FO's!! 80's alterego?

12 Baleful Regards:

I just did the 80s alterego post.

And yes, working all day without reading blogs does indeed make for a long ass day! :)

Kristen said...

I love it - like a rainbow :)

As for your random comments, at first glance, the waxing of the dreadlocks sounded kind of sexy, but in actuality, I imagine it's not.

And I have the sore boobs as well. May I recommend some cabbage?

Cuz I'm nuts. :)

Sorry. I should have told you about the whole crying thing when it comes to that book. I'm so jealous that you're reading it for the first time. The next couple are excellent as well.

I'm almost finished with the latest, and the shine has worn off a bit for me. Sometimes I just wish people would stop kidnapping Claire. (That is not a spoiler. It just happens in these books sort of a lot.)

I don't understand what it means to wax dreadlocks. Does it tidy up the dreads?

Nancy said...

I keep trying to quit blog-reading at work. Some days I'm successful and others... not. Can you guess which kind of day this is?

Like Ms. Fancy, I am intrigued by the process of dreadlock maintenance. I thought they were pretty well self-maintaining once they got to that point?

The first Outlander book was by far the best. But isn't that always the case? Sequels are just never as good...with the exception of Harry Potter. And Toy Story 2...I liked it much better when Buzz & Woody were getting along.

Contrary said...

Yeah, it's not nearly as bad when you've never had blogs at work. Oh, who am I kidding? Yes, it is! It's awful! I'm thinking about going to secretarial school so I can make much less money and sneak around on the internet at work.

I'll have to look around and see if I can even find an 80's alter ago. I could not be tied down to one style! I was a rebel!

Plus, in the latter part of the 80's I was in maternity clothes. I wasn't pregnant or anything. I just liked the way they looked. NOT.

Cyndi Lauper was great. She bop.

And mine is up too, finally...

Mignon said...

If I become queen I am going to remove February from the calender. Obviously the Romans (Greeks?) knew it sucked and gave it fewer days.

Waxing his dreads. Is that some kind of euphamism?

mama_tulip said...

Isn't waxing dreads what people with dreads do to keep them from like, fraying? I vaguely remember my college roommate doing this while watching Simpsons re-runs.

roo said...

Yay! You're reading "Outlander"!

I'm in love with Jamie Frasier. Fortunately, this doesn't threaten my marriage, because, well, Jamie's not real.

I actually like the second book in the series the best. I recommend making sure you have nothing too pressing to accomplish before embarking on it...

I can't see the picture. Maybe Internet Explorer is blocking it?

Was Terrance wearing a white clay mud mask while you did his hair?;)

jubyred said...

Ok, my meme is up.

What is it with men having the ole woman do the hair? My husband hasn't had a haircut outside of our bathroom in 9 years. It's always at like 10 pm..."Could you give me a little trim" as I'm lying in bed with a book in my chest.

Sure thing, partner. Let me drop what I'm doing and get right on that.
