My 100th Post – How Lipstick Can Change Your Life.

I can’t go anywhere anymore without lipstick.  I can forget all the other makeup (well, most of the other makeup), but I cannot function without lipstick.  Why?

Because this is how it makes me feel.










Everyone needs to feel like Joey Heatherton sometimes, even if they’re Alice Pearce.

Thanks for coming on this blog journey with me; I’m having a blast!


Okay, lets make a vow...I promise to never get an old lady haircut. I promise to wear lipstick at all times (even in the shower). I promise to never purse my mouth in that disapproving, wrinkle producing way. I promise to write funny blogs every day!

poor Alice Pearce being the 'before' picture. This ad must have hurt her self esteem.
Ahhhhh, I feel like I'm Joey Heatherton's age until I look in the mirror...with or without lipstick, Alice Pearce is staring back at me. Perhaps I should try the Cody Cremestick. Congratulation on your 100th post! I've had a blast right along with you!

Happy 100th post!

And um, yeah - lipstick isn't the main problem for me, actually!

To the Editor:

You must be kidding. Ms. Joey Heatherton was one of the hottest hotties of all time (well--for creepy old guys *cough cough*), but that picture makes her look like an Emmet Kelly wanna be. For some reason, the morons (to use a value neutral, non-judgmental expression) who put together cosmetic ads seem to believe that wearing less than $50 USD worth of crap at any given time (especially right before going to sleep) leaves you looking like a repulsive two-bagger. I wonder why they do that?

As for the Basement Chicken's comment--I remember a few years ago, Julia Child attended some big numbered reunion of some school she attended. Ms. Child left the reunion early, furious at her classmates. She was the only one who even wore lipstick, or did anything with her hair. The rest of her classmates (her phrase) just wanted to be miserable old ladies, sitting around complaining about their health problems.

I think of that story, in conjunction with The Who song about how I hope I die before I get old. La Belle Child: she did die, before she got old.

Fight the power, America. There's a wide gap between Alice Pearce and Emmet Kelly, so find the path that's right for you.

And congratulations to Barbara the Humour on becoming a Centurion (in the good way).

I remain:
A creepy old guy.

PS YELLOW lipstick? I mean, I grew up in the 70s, so I remember brief (mercifully brief) flurries of white and various permutations of brown (I don't EVEN want to think about that)--But yellow? That's gotta be even worse than the Goth's black.....

Well, I'm not a guy, but somehow I think Alice Pearce was probably a lot more fun (and a lot more interesting) than Joey Heatherton ever was. Give me a gal with a sense of humor over one that can pout any day (BTW, Joey's looking a little constipated in that "After" picture).
