How Was Your Morning?

It should only take me 15 minutes tops to blow dry my hair in the morning.

It usually takes 30. Why? Because I have to stop and answer the phone.

Wait, I thought I heard the phone ring. Wasn't that the phone?
No missed call. Back to drying.

Okay, THAT'S the phone now. Stop drying. Nope, it's not ringing.

I hear it again. I ignore it because I know there is no one calling me ... the phone is now on the counter in the bathroom with me.

But wait. Did I just hear the door bell?


I discovered just after a hot shower, when my face is all warm and steamy, I can take a charge card and scrape it along my chin and forehead and really clear out the pores. Gross I know, but it works. BTW, I'm one of those types that makes a mess of her face cleaning things up that aren't even there.

So I am doing this and I scraped a bit too much this morning, on my chin. It looked like a rug burn. A rug burn without the fun that could possibly go along with chin rug burns. Thankfully, a cold compress and face powder made it go away before I left for work.

Oh be quiet, you know you are going to try the charge card thing. Especially since it works!


And while I am feeling like "Rosanne Roseannadana" with my grossness.

Do you cut your nose hairs? Have you ever REALLY looked ... in a magnified mirror girl? Well, I do and have for a couple years now. And this morning, damn, I cut myself. But, at least I have no nose hair.

And I bet ya'll though I was lady like!

(I am, but just in public)

hahah! love this post. Also, I saw that you entered Pioneer Woman's Zune contest. I'm having a contest on my blog right now to win 1 of 2 Nintendo DS systems. You should enter! :)

On the imaginary noises, are you crying out for attention Marie Millard?

Perhaps I'll try shaving with a charge card...hmmmm. ; )

And I though nose hair was only a man thing. Or is that ear hair?

: )

Too funny, Nancy! I personally have a love/hate relationship with my magnification mirror. Great for doing the eyebrows, but it's easy to get obsessed with what you see when you get too up close and personal.

Uuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrchhhhhhhhh! [Sound of tires squealing to a stop]

Did somebody say rug burn?

I always think I hear the phone ringing when I use the hair dryer too! (And it's not) Must be some sound frequency from the dryer or our ears are ringing. MIME

ROFL!!! This was just the laughter i needed to end this atrocious day!!!

I don't answer the phone, so I never have that problem when blow drying my hair. So I have sensitive skin, especially on my face. After one long, drunken make out session with a guy with chin stubble, I woke up the next morning with a huge sore on my chin. Try explaining that one.

I have a special shaver for take care of nose and ear hair. This past Christmas a buddy of mine bought something that lets him get to his back hair easier.

Thanks for the much needed giggle...really...I needed it!!

I hate that face hair that seems to be appearing as I get older. Especially sitting at my desk at work and rub my chin, and this hair has popped out and feels huge and disgusting. I can't wait to get home and pluck that thing!

I use a pumice stone on my feet every time I shower. That probably doesn't surprise anyone who knows me.

Interesting things to know about facial care...
Hmm, so just curious, do you get charged a 'service fee' for using the card on your face...??
