Writers Workshop: Picture of me, with no primping...eeek!

Ok, so I have been a very bad little monkey lately... as far as staying on top of my posting.
I feel like I've lost the few readers I had because I have been fairly self-absorbed again... I tend to turtle in a bit when my life is going in fast forward on a constant basis... which is right now.

But at least, I will do the writer's workshop this week. I will also try to be better about actually writing out some of the many, many ideas for posts that I have instead of having a few bouncing around in my head at all times.

Here are the prompts for Mama Kat's writer's workshop this week. You can click her name if you want all the details. : ) Come on and play... it's fun!

1.) If you were starring on American Idol TONIGHT and HAD to sing, what song would you choose and why.

2.) Take a picture of yourself right this minute without primping and explain to us why it is you have not washed your hair today.

3.) I just asked Pat to help me with a writing prompt so here's his: "What do you think about the NBA All Star game"...blech.
4.) What's your number one pet peeve? Develop a punishment for anyone caught in the act.
5.) Write about something mean you did to a sibling growing up.

HA! #2 called out to me ...this one had to be it for a couple of reasons.
First reason being that it made me laugh at loud!! Always a good thing, laughter makes things better, right?
Second reason being that I got caught! I totally DIDN'T wash my hair today.... I only wash it a couple times a week...
Thirdly, and maybe most importantly... I got busted wearing pigtails. I mean, I think that we are all well aware that I am officially too old for pigtails to be cute... but I did it... what can I say?
I even went to the store today... I'm so ashamed! : )
And of course, the fourth and final reason would be that "I usually set the camera up and conduct mini photo shoots with myself twice daily...so it would fit right into my schedule."
just like Mama Kat... who knew we had so much in common? ; )
tee hee hee...
alright sorry I'm feeling a little silly tonight!

but there could be worse things in the world , right?

Today I am thankful for laughter! ...as busy as things are a good giggle can only do a person good!
I am thankful that my husband is an amazing cook and I had a tasty dinner, that I didn't have to cook.(Chicken and Garlic Broccoli with Vodka Sauce over Campanelle, Salad, and Fresh Bread..not ours, but very good!)

Hey, no fair.....you look good without any primping. You must be a youngster. :)

J Cosmo Newbery said...

That's fairly reasonable. There was NO WAY KNOWN I would have chosen that option!

Luckily I don't have a web cam and I have to use my husband's computer to transfer photos from my digital camera. But every time I mess with his computer, something goes haywire, so I don't dare touch it. He was in bed, so everyone's computer may have been saved from a cracked screen by not having to experience my unprimped face and hair.

I didn't even notice your pigtails on the pic. Hey Willy Nelson wears pigtails and he's probably old enough to be your grandfather ---not that I think it's a wise style choice for him.

I think you look good in pig tails. I love pig tails and put them in my girls hair as much as they will let me. Cute! but I like how you got "busted" nonetheless. :-D

{Came over from Mama Kat's Workshop} :)

Pigtails are cute no matter how old you are! My hair is much too long for them now though. :(

You look great. :)

Um...I still think you look cute!

I always blame the weather, it works for anything :)

I think the pigtails rock! My son told me that I'm too old to get purple streaks in my hair (I just mentioned it in passing, seemed like fun). He said he would be embarrassed to be seen with me. Sounds like I absolutely have to do it now!

I love the pig tails.
(secret: Sometimes I wear braids.) I'm just not right. :-)

Maki said...

The pig tails are always in for us girls!!

You look great! :)

Gracey said...

Pig tails are fantastic! I admire your confidence. I couldn't dream of doing such a thing (photos tend to freak me out), but you look great!

ChristineM said...

I think you look adorable! And no, you haven't lost any readers!! Nice to see you back again!

Namine said...

Fabulous post. Made me laugh! I love your pigtails!! I still do mine that way

Paige said...

I say there should be more pigtails in the world.

More power to you!

Diva Ma said...

pigstail to the store is a brave move! LOL! I wasn't brave enough tot choose this prompt.

Caitlin said...

I think you look great! Pigtails are sassy at any age..right? Plus, I feel like they hide the grease better that a plain-old ponytail. Got to mix it up a little, right?

Jen said...

You make pigtails look good!

you rock pigtails very nicely. I don't wash my hair everyday either. I was just lucky to have washed my hair the night before.

what is the tattoo on you chest of? if you don't mind me asking.
