** I'm giving away a beautiful photography book this week. Click here for details. **
Fun Fact #1: I took this, very (!) bad, photo of myself with my MacBook yesterday afternoon. Do you like the messy, un-brushed, hair? (Seriously, I'm not sure I even brushed it with anything other than my fingers yesterday!)
Did I photoshop away enough of my wrinkles?
The reason why I'm sharing this, less than flattering, picture is because I just received the shirt I have on. I ordered it from Boden. I've mentioned before, I like some of their clothes. It was really hot here yesterday and this top was cool, comfortable, cute and … just a little bit sex-ay due to the low-cut. I always like to share a good find on Twenty Four At Heart. (No, I'm not getting any freebies from Boden).
Fun Fact #2: Someone on Twitter used the expression, "Omigod I just pulled a TwentyFour!" to explain something embarrassing she'd done. It made me laugh. Then I thought about it for a minute, and now I'm not sure if I should be flattered or insulted?
Fun Fact #3: My friend Mr Lady gave me the greatest tip on Twitter the other day. I was cooking a dish with a lot of garlic in it and my hands reeked of it. Mr Lady told me to rub my hands on stainless steel and the smell would go away. I'd never heard of doing this before and, I admit, I was skeptical. But guess what? It works! It might have looked a little odd as I gave my appliances a hand job, but the garlic smell disappeared completely.
Am I the only one who didn't know this trick?
Fun Fact #4: Today is Day #4 of my 1,000 calorie per day diet. In reality, I think I'm actually getting around 1100 calories each day. I'm trying to do this for two weeks to kick-start my body into losing some weight before summer. I don't know if I've lost anything yet, but I'm definitely eating healthier. I'm also hungry. I'm using SparkPeople to track calories and nutrients. The most interesting part of the experience so far has been realizing what I DON'T have enough of in my diet. (Vitamin C, as an example.) If nothing else, it's making me very conscious of eating healthier which is always a good thing. (And no, I'm not following the SparkPeople diet plan.)
Fun Fact #5: I had a pukey kid home for the beginning part of this week. If I catch what he had? Shoot me.
Fun Fact #6: Someone in my immediate family departed for Russia this week. It wasn't me or Briefcase.
Fun Fact #7: A local Orange County woman recently got upset with me for swearing on Twitter. If you're on Twitter, you know swearing is extremely prevalent there. Also? clearly, this woman was not a 24 reader or she would have already known I'm not a G-rated blogger.
I woke up in a lot of pain that particular morning and I believe I tweeted something along the lines of, "Holy shit my arm hurts. Fuck you Anthem Blue Cross for taking my PT away from me." This particular woman replied back to me her son had read my tweet and I needed a time-out for cussing.
If you know me at all, you know I absolutely cannot keep my mouth shut at times.
This was definitely one of those times.
I replied back this is why kids should not be on Twitter.
She replied back this is why [she] would "unfollow" me.
If you're easily offended, you never should have followed me in the first place. Be a responsible parent and don't let your young kids read the Tweets of adults you've followed.
Fun Fact #8: There are a LOT of women in Money Town right now who look like chimpanzees.
They've botoxed their faces to the point where their faces don't move at all. Their eyes look permanently startled or frightened due to a combination of botox and bad brow lifts. They've put so much filler in their lips, they flap in the wind. But worst of all, they've added fillers to their laugh lines (parentheses) around their mouth. Women here are going so overboard on the fillers, they look horrible. Honestly, it looks like they're walking around with snouts.
Stop it Money Town women!
It doesn't look good – it looks ridiculous.
And glaringly obvious.
And many of us are laughing at you.
And in a year or two you will look back at photos of yourself and say, "Omigod – what was I thinking?!"
Because that's exactly what I'm wondering right now.
What the hell are you thinking?
