A Few Random Things About Me- 6 thru 10

10- I almost never wear makeup. I bought some for going to prom and when I've been in weddings, but tossed it soon afterwards. When I was growing up, my mom always told me that once you started wearing makeup, then everyone expected you to always look that good. And she just thought that it was more effort than the charade was worth. When our two oldest girls were old enough to want to start wearing it, I just kept telling them that they were too pretty to wear it. They still are. (But they ignore me, nonetheless.)

This is what I look like with lipstick. (Doesn't Joey look like a little stinker in this picture?)

9- I went on a date with Corey Feldman's cousin when I was in college. Well, at least he said he was his cousin. And, honestly, why on earth would someone make that up? This guy was pretty cute and drove an expensive car, but was also a great reminder as to why superficial things like that don't matter at all. We went out once.

8- I suppose this goes with the makeup thing, but I don't own any diamonds, nor do I want to. I'd be upset with Jeff if he ever spent that much money on something I'd probably be afraid to wear around anyway (I'm always doing something that gets my hands dirty). I'd be happy to have diamond jewelry if it had been passed down in the family, though. But I'm also the one that has kept an old mule harness because it came from my great- grandparents' farm.

7- When Joey was in pre-school she asked me if she could get her nose pierced (Jenny has one) and I told her yes. She changed her mind when she found out that it hurt and I was kind of disappointed. She would have been so cute. Piercings, shaved or dyed hair on my kids has never bothered me in the least.

6- I didn't know what the song She Bop (by Cyndi Lauper) was about until a couple of years ago, when Jeff told me.

Did anyone have to go look up about number 6? Or am I the only person that didn't know this?

I knew about #6 BUT only after someone told me a few years ago too. I always thought it was about dancing. Hee hee.

I'm with you on #6 as well. And I had to click your link to take me to the Wiki since I thought it was so funny that they have that in there. Someone had to tell me too what it was about. Been laughing for days on your posts. I actually own the 2 DVD sets you mentioned earlier... How did we turn out normal with these programs?? Or, who says we're normal anyway??

Good ol' Cyndi.

Hey, your mom was right—and real is always more beautiful than masked.

Awww, I LOVE the photo of you and Joey - you're both BEAUTIFUL (even with lipstick ;)) Your mom's advice cracked me up! Very practical woman! I rarely wear make-up either, but I do like the Burt's Bees lip shimmers.

I didn't know about #6 ... didn't really think anything about it.

BTW, I am still laughing at your troll story (having read that blog post first)...

I had to click your link. I was completely clueless and maybe I should actually start listening to songs lyrics.

I didn't know that about She Bop either. In fact, I learned it from your post, after I looked it up! :)
