Quick confession: I used to sell Mary Kay Cosmetics™. The judging stops NOW!
Moving on. A friend of mine has invited me to a Mary Kay party. It has been roughly ten years since I have been to one, much less used their stuff. That doesn’t mean I don’t own some still, though mostly perfumey stuff. Usually I dread going to these parties because I have awful skin, and usually buy into the hope that this time I will find something that will make my skin look perfect and flawless. That is silly, of course, but I can still hope. Prayer doesn’t hurt, either.
Surprisingly, I am looking forward to it. I have come to the realization that I am a homebody. I don’t go out much, and when I do, I tend to come home early because of the kids. I do my chores around the house in total silence, forgetting about the radio or the CD player, and sometimes feel like I’m in a tomb, at least until Little One comes home and watches Disney Channel. I need to get out more, and make new friends, and if that entails going to a make-up party and buying something that guarantees to take years off your face, I will do it!
I just hope that stuff isn’t botox 😉

I joke with friends about the fact that I could easily become a “hermit”. I really really don’t care for most humans and my tolerance for enduring their nonsense seems to diminish with each passing year. As for the silence, I reccomend the music channels on your tv. No commercials and you can pick your genre.

Troy, I always forget about the music channels! Thanks for the reminder 🙂

I stay entertained by the voices in my head. They say the funniest things, sometimes to me!

Well, yeah. They chatter amongst themselves mostly, and don’t like to be interrupted. It’s like incredibly clever elevator music.

I’m a hermit. The less people I have to deal with the better. Have fun at the party.

I tried Mary Kay once when a friend was selling it. I just don’t do makeup as often as I should. I’ve been trying to improve though. 🙂 Lately I’ve been spending the farm on Ahava products for skin care. Cannot say how much I love their Dead Sea salt bar soap.

You know, Hubby can get Ahava where he’s at 😉
Send me a list!

Oh, lawd. Is it less expensive than it is here? Cuz if it is, I’ll have a heck of a list. 🙂

The Doctor: Bit of a Hermit.
Professor Yana: A-a hermit
Professor Yana: with, uh, friends?
The Doctor: Hermits United. We meet up every 10 years, swap stories about caves. It’s good fun. For a Hermit.
Love Doctor Who… what’s wrong with being a hermit??!

Voices in your head? I have a talking telepathic DOG does that count for anything?

I get out a lot. Too much. And all my friends are crazy. Which is a good thing actually.
