Unanswerable beauty questions

  • is black mascara not enough? How can blackest black be any blacker than black?
  • why does one need glitter in deodorant? do your armpits really need to sparkle? (if they come out with glitter toilet paper, call me)
  • is there really a need for tampon commercials? Talk about a product that will get purchased with or without advertising. We're in a recession. Cut back on your ad dollars and knock a little off the price.
  • I realize that congress is busy working on health care reform, but perhaps it is time someone needs to address the problematic hairspray issue. I am lobbying for a universal grading system of hairspray strength. Mega, super, extreme---which has the most hold? Just tell me that and that's the one that I will buy. Why would a person not purchase the hairspray with the most hold? Is that not the reason for hairspray?

There were no questions when you used Aqua Net in the white can. Now that was a guaranteed hard hold. Super, mega, extreme hold.

Missing tooth

Jack lost his first tooth a week ago.
4 1/2 seems pretty early to lose teeth, but nothing is normal at our house.
The tooth fairy has yet to make her appearance.
Jack refuses to put the tooth under his pillow.
I told him that he would get a dollar or maybe even more for his first lost tooth.
Jack said "I want gold, you know like gold coins in a treasure chest".
We're working on that one.

Although many great movies were mentioned, before the contest began I knew that the first to mention the movie Road House would be the winner.
That person is Dawn, my bloggy pal from MUST LOVE TOTS. I have a prize for Dawn, something I have wanted to give her for a while now. Something I think she will enjoy more than the movie.
The copy of FOOTLOOSE will go to Kate P.
I know Kate will use it in good health.
Congrats to the winners and thanks to all those who played.
Amber (the new commenter Amber-we have a lot now!)
shout out to you for mentioning Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
I've had "Texas has a whorehouse in it, Lord have mercy on our souls" running through my head since I read your comment.

FOOTLOOSE for free!

In my possession is a DVD copy of this classic flick brand new, unwrapped.
One of you can have it for your very own.
Just leave a comment with your favorite guilty pleasure movie.
You know, the one that never won an Oscar, but the one that sucks you in if you pass it by while you're flipping through the channels.
The ones you've seen more times than you can even count.
There are quite a few movies like that for me.
Footloose is for sure one of them.
You may already own this movie.
You still can win it and give it away to some sad soul who has never experienced the joys of Kevin Bacon dancing at the Prom that almost never was.
You have until Wednesday at noon.
You can enter more than once---one movie per comment.

the ole swimmin' hole

Payton and Dawson were over yesterday to swim with Jack.
Harrison even got to get in for a little while!
It was such a nice, fun day. Payton, Dawson, and Jack were in the pool for almost 8 hours.
I'm not sure about Payton & Dawson, but Jack slept HARD last night!

A miracle product

Let me introduce you to my new best friend......

Purex 3-in-1 laundry sheets.

Throw in a sheet with a load of clothes in the washing machine. The detergent is in the sheet. The fabric softener is in the sheet. Transfer the sheet to the dryer where the anti-static action starts working.

The starter kit comes with 20 sheets and a holder. It cost a little over $5.00. The refill comes with 24 sheets.

They really work.

THRILLER thrills you

The polls are closed and Thriller is your fav MJ video with Billie Jean coming in a fairly close second.

In honor of the winner, here is a recreation done by some very talented Phillipino prisoners. I love that his girlfriend is being played by a (hot chola) man.

If I ever have to go to prison I sure hope it is in the Phillipines. They've got choreography! American prisons are SO boring.

If you have some time to kill, check out the rest of their videos on YouTube.

Jon from Jon and Kate needs a date

After watching the Michael Jackson memorial coverage (which I found to be beautiful, tasteful, and touching) nonstop, it's time for a laugh!

The King of Pop is the King of Videos

I've watched more than my fair share of Michael Jackson coverage.
CNN, FOX NEWS, and MSNBC have it on pretty much nonstop.
I even registered to win tickets to his memorial in L.A. on Tuesday.
(I did not win, not sure what I would have done if I had,
probably tried my darndest to get myself there).
Even in my sadness and state of mourning,
I have thoroughly enjoyed the MJ videos that
VH1 and MTV have been playing.
Which leads me to my poll, The King of Pop had many, many great videos.
Which one is your favorite?
Vote on my poll on the right hand side of the screen.
