Friday Miscellanea

It is Friday Morning and I feel optimistic for the first time in a long time. Something changed at work on Wednesday when I wrote that prayer. Just a simple "God help me." And it changed. Not that everything has turned rosey, but I feel different. I am not dreading going to work today and that is very different.

Last night a friend and I went to see "Spirit of the Marathon." It was an awesome movie. Very inspiring. I am psyched about running right now - even though today is not a running day for me. But I will get out there tomorrow!

Lips: What the hell is going on? For years, I have noticed on magazines that women have voluntarily mutilated their faces with these huge, puffy, lumpy, meaty looking lip implants. Now I am beginning to see these strange lips on actual people in my real world. I had a meeting the other day with a woman I have worked with since 1994. Imagine my surprise to see her suddenly have "pouty" lips. She is a woman who is somewhere around 50 years old. She has age spots! And now she has this strange expression on her face like someone just smacked her in the mouth - or she just had a car accident and hit the windshield - lips first. Ick. I don't get it.

Okay. How is that for straying far from the point of this blog?

Let's all stay sober today, OK?

The power of the written word never ceases to amaze me. I don't get the lip thing either. Have a great weekend.

I hope she doesn't have a ship.

Maybe it's the Angelina Jolie effect. I don't get fake breasts either.

Too bad everyone can't choose to age gracefully like Jamie Lee Curtis. Meg Ryan ruined her lips too and I'm not even going to mention Melanie Griffith.

I hate it when people get lippy.

My lips have gotten smaller with age, but I don't think I need to have them pumped with fat from my ass. Heck, they might just explode!

Remember Pete Burns from the band Dead or Alive? They did some great stuff in the 80s like You Spin Me (Right Round Baby Like a Record). Anyway he had some lip injections go bad and you can see the new Pete and hear his story

What is UP with Pete Burns? I never heard of him before. What happened to his FACE?

OK..I had kinda quack lips once!
I had Restylane injected ABOVE my lips to get rid of the wrinkles caused by smoking. One of the side affects for a month or so is quack quack lips. It hurt like HELL. and cost me $980.00 !!!
It only lasts about 6 months.

Yeah, what is up with those lip jobs!? Always reminds me of liver -- two nice slimey strips of uncooked liver...mmmm'mmmmmmm, sexy!

I don't blame Angelina Jolie, though. I put that on Katherine Helmond in Brazil.

Mary Christine, when I see the fat fake lips, I want to moisten themm and slamm em against a window to see if they will stick. Haven't but I am tempted. Have a great day.

Nip Tuck had an awesome episode this week about a woman with lips, eyes and boobs gone wrong. I don't get it either.
