In which June references Mr. McGee. As you do.

Sorry I'm late. I had the NERVE to try to recycle 14 photos on my desktop and you can imagine the 40 dramatic fits my computer had. I'm like Mr. McGee from the Raspberry Beret song. I don't like this computer's kind, because it's a bit too leisurely.

Who is eagerly awaiting her credit card? So she can TOSS THIS COMPUTER INTO HOT FLAMES? As opposed to cold flames.

Also, I love the political correctness of having a recycle bin on your computer instead of just a trash can. You aren't RECYCLING anything. You're throwing it away. Good gravy.

Have I made utterly no sense so far in this post? Sorry.

Whereismyhead I've lost my head.

I love how you can see my purse behind this poor headless woman. Maybe her head is in there.

I really have lost my head a little, though. This morning I knew I was out of cans of kitten food and Sterling/Cooper were gonna be PISSED, but what I also didn't realize was I was dangerously low in crunchy food. Who was setting herself up to be murdered by her own pet family? It was gonna be like that really good show about people who have dumb pets, like bears or venomous snakes, and the story always ends with the stupid person not showing up to work, and all they find are a few Hello Kitty earrings and some hair.

Fortunately I had a can of tuna.

Tunacatz Yoo lukky, bitz.

Do you know what I really need, now that my freelance money has come in and I do not have to live on $10 as I was doing last week? I need actual cat-and-dog-food bowls. Edsel ate both of his, and the cats knocked their cute yellow and blue flower bowls to the ground and broke them, and really why do I feed these useless animals? Maybe I'll go on Etsy and try to find unchewable, unbreakable bowls.

In other news, my uncle Bill came to town last night, and no, I am not Buffy or Jody.

Billfood
I am, however, totally Sissy. Anyway, he is here for a conference, and what could be more exciting than a conference? Why do they have conferences? Does anyone ever like them? Or want to be at them? Or find them rewarding?

Nevertheless, here he is. I made him go to the Vietnamese restaurant in my neighborhood, and oddly, every single time I have been there I have sat at this same table. I was just there the other day with Daniel Boone. At this table. I in fact emailed this photo to D Boone last night, because it is necessary he be kept abreast of my every move. So to speak.

Anyway it was fun to see Uncle Bill. It's always fun to see one of my relatives NOT at a family function, because you may be surprised to hear this but my family tends to talk a lot, and all at the same time, and about 30% of what you say gets heard, and my point is we could actually speak to each other last night like normal people.

Billlu
He got to meet Tallulah, who I think he's never met before. I took Edsel with me to Uncle Bill's last Thanksgiving, so he had that vastly pleasurable meet-Edsel experience already.

Uncle Bill can make many good sound effects, and he kept meowing like a cat and oh! Did my dogs ever tilt their heads when he did it. "Dis guy. He cat or man person?" They were baffled.

I never said I had genius dogs.

Oh! And finally, I put my Latisse on last night! Miss Doxie emailed me my whole bag of cosmetics, thank all that is holy and merciful, and you can imagine how I did not stampede to the Latisse at all. How do I look? Are my lashes luxurious yet? Are you having trouble reading this with my lashes in the way?

That made no sense. As opposed to the rest of this sensical post.

Okay, goodbye. Am gonna do stupid Insanity workout tonight so wish me luck. I hope my eyelashes don't bend on the floor during the push-up portion of the evening.

At one point, I was sort of hot, in a "she's 27 and probably a 7" kind of a way. Now I'm old and have to develop a charming personality. Guess how that's going.

  3. That’s so exciting that you got your make up back – and yes, I was having a hard time reading this – what with your long, luxurious lashes getting in my way.
    I don’t know how you made it without the make up bag. Pretty sure I would have stayed home until it was delivered to my email. Or house. Whichever mailing method is preferable. Amanda isn’t so pretty without all the make up.

  4. Well. Amanda. You apparently do not understand about your pal June and the makeup issue. Me not having my MAIN makeup does not render me barefaced. Pshhh! I just had to use my second-tier products. I also have third-tier and a train case of old stuff from when I had money and bought really good stuff.

  5. Second and third tier make up?! Of all the new-fangled ideas! I guess I would have some mostly empty bottles of make-up at home to help restore my “natural beauty”, now that I think about it.
    I do have my Mary Kay lady on speed dial, too. We don’t want anyone thinking I have NO natural beauty, now do we Hulk?
    In case you men didn’t know – ALL women have natural beauty. Some of us just need to accentuate it with about three and a half pounds of make up every day.

  9. I can totally relate to multiple make-up kits. I have kits within kits! There’s the two main ones – Home Make-up and Travel Make-up, but then within those categories there is Summer Make-up, Winter Make-up, Night-time Make-up, and Daytime Make-up. That doesn’t include all my I-got-sucked-into-buying-random-crap-at-Sephora Make-up.
    Make-up does go bad, so don’t wait to long to use up that “good stuff”, June.

  10. Oh, Lisa Pie, you’re not playing fair. Mentioning the sweet mama kitten no one wants and then we’re all stampeding to your site and looking at her. I just got my little kitten head, Kobe, in May. I said to my hubby the other day maybe we ought to get a little friend for Kobecakes. Because once you have one catten it’s really not a big deal to add another catten to the house. Aw, hell. Thanks. Now I’m wondering where you live and how far it would be if we met half way and how I can coerce my hubby into agreeing with this crazy thought pattern I’m having. Thanks.

  11. Speaking of makeup, Sephora stamped SUCKER on my forehead a few weeks ago. How, in Jackie O’s name, I walked out of there spending $109 I have no clue. I can tell you I did return the Smashbox primer and foundation and exchanged it for another $40 “high definition” foundation. How can foundation be HD? For the wedding I ended up wearing an $8 Covergirl foundation and a sample Benefit pore primer.
    If anyone is interested in Make Up Forever Professional color #120 it’s yours…for the price of mailing, which I’m sure is less than $40.

  12. Duffylou, I feel your pain. I think the total cost sneaks up on us because the items are so small and colorful and arranged like a penny candy store, so they can’t POSSIBLY cost $30 a piece; and then you get to the register.

  15. The only dramatics was me wanting to bitch slap my hair stylist. Then being out $150 to pay for two separate appointments at two separate salons.
    The wedding was wonderful. The bride was gorgeous and the groom handsome. Everything was quite lovely. With the exception that the bar closed an hour before I thought it was to close. I was a tad bit upset. You can’t win them all.

  16. Williams on the Lake in Medina, Ohio. It rained all day until a little after 3:00. Then the clouds parted the sun came out and it was dry and sunny for their 4:00 outdoor wedding. It stayed sunny for all of the outdoor pictures. It started drizzling off and on again while we were eating. When it came time to get my dad in the transport ambulance it had stopped again.

    June you need to be sure to take a before picture of your lashes so we can know if the Latisse is working. Maybe you could have Dick Whitman take the picture for you.
