Time marches on...me [Jul. 25th, 2004|09:35 pm]

Last night I went out with the Lost Lions, and indulged in a pear cider. Today I look like I've been on a three-day Boone's Farm binge. Obviously, the old gray mare just ain't what she used to be.

Fortunately, I have high-tech ammunition in the battle against time, or at least in the struggle to keep the battleground well manicured. My arsenal includes special soaps, creams, lotions, masks...things that promise to lighten and tighten and firm things that frankly weren't all that light and tight and firm to begin with.

My most recent aquisition was a gift from my mother-in-law, who sent me a two month supply of a do-it-yourself-at-home chemical peel. So far, so good, although I have to wonder exactly what degree of vanity makes rubbing acid on my face sound like a good idea. Granted, it's just a modern, less smelly, more sanitary version of Cleopatra bathing in asses' milk, but it still gives one cause to pause.

I'm not pausing for long, though. Just because I earned every line and gray hair doesn't mean I want to put them all on display.

Really, Jo, you're beautiful. It was great seeing you and Lori & Sean this weekend.

I have no idea what a chemical peel is. It is so much easier being a man. Sounds like some sort of acid wash or high pressure sandblasting.

I let the secret out of the bag about tomorrow, too. Happy birthday :)

I really didn't need the mental image of Cleopatra bathing in asses' milk on a Monday post-lunch surf. {sour face} Thanks. :P

Oh and happy belated B-day. :)

Nonono. It's an hour and a half from now, you're not too late.

Doh.

I knew I should have checked my mail last night!

Well... I guess it really is belated now.
