Words of wisdom from a toddler

July 15, 2009

 

My son has come out with a couple of things that have set me off this week. The first was when we were bringing the shopping in from the car and we saw a rather huge spider skuttle off under my Japanese grass ,

”Mama that spider was soooo big, he was lunch!’ said half pint……

Then in bed the other night, after bed time story, he reached over and pointed to the side of my face as I lay on his pillow. He touched the side of my eye and said, very concerned,

”This bit  here looks a little bit old……”.

Ah lovely, pass the botox.

How to get a Hawt post on wordpress.

July 12, 2009

I have been asking myself that same question for quite some time now.

Is it the avatar?  – no because someone this morning didn’t have one.

Is it the title? Do you need a number in it? A question? A symbol? -no

One particular blogger is a regular Hawt post ( he of the meteorological updates and moustache)- so is it a moustache that gets it? Or is he actually Mr WordPress?

Is it that we ( merely featured pos holders) blog about past news but the Hawt poster blogs new info, as yet unseen on the net? Maybe.

OK- so here is something new,in this age of anti skin cancer sunbathing self tan remedies……. red henna powder, named ‘dam gazal’ ( deer’s blood) in Arabic mixed with turmeric and a drop of water , rubbed over the skin and left for an hour or so before being washed off gives a glorious golden warm tan….but if you rub it on your nails, it turns purple.

Am I Hawt now?? Aha…maybe you aren’t allowed to use coloured fonts……..aha, no I’ve missed again.

Should you go under the knife?

A few months ago I had some filler put in, just to hide those mouth lines that were so cute when I was 20 and 20o years later aren’t so cute……but that’s as far as I’ll go. I really would like to have lipo done and a boob lift but something inside of me keeps telling me not to be so damned lazy, put the donut down and get on the Wii fit. Fillers, ok- you can’t diet those laughter lines away, but surgery is another matter. Sometimes it can be fatal and people just don’t seem to take that into account when they go in and sign the consent paper….

take for example, the wife of footballer Colin hendry, who has just died after a botched cosmetic surgery procedure.

Is it worth doing your hair when it’s like that outside?

For those among you who are uninitiated in the Kuwaiti summer…….we are drifting into the range of 48 degrees this week ( that’s 48 degrees centigrade……). Then at odd times through the day some unexpected humidity pops up. So what with the humidity and the sweat caused by the 48 degree heat….is it really worth having your hair blow dried straight?

I think not. I for one shall not be visiting the salon any time soon- except for a swift pedicure and an eye brow threading…………….
