More on Bangs, Nothing on Beer

I apologize for the silliness of this post. It's what happens when yott,;lk';;jm sorry my hands were shaky there....when you can't blog about beer.

Which brings up a question. Is saying you're not blogging about beer actually blogging about beer?

Anyway, thanks to everyone for their support--it seems more guys are over here commenting when I don't blog about beer (such as Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA) than when I do blog about beer (such as Great Lakes Commodore Perry). But back to my bangs.

As requested, I will now reveal my latest effort not to look like Susan Sarandon. First, a disclaimer. Do you know how freakin' hard it is to take a decent picture of yourself?

There's the matter of the flash:

Then the positioning of the camera:

Decisions like glasses on:

Or off:

Or hair down:

Or up:

And after all that, you realize how stupid your bangs are (and that you need braces and botox) and you secretly wish you looked more like Susan Sarandon.

It's enough to drive one to drink (but not beer, definitely not beer).

And speaking of other bloggers who don't and never will look like Susan, JT at The Goth Mom tagged me for my first meme--three things my spousal unit would say about me. Most of them I can't repeat on my blog, but here are three I can:

1) I blog too much.

2) I talk about John Cusack too much.

3) I show too much cleveage.

Stay tuned for my next post where I reveal my cleveage. Just kidding. This is a family blog after all.

For more family blogs, go to Humor-Blogs and vote for me by clicking that odd little PAC MAN guy. It's been two days of not blogging about beer and I need something to look forward to.

p.s. is Pac Man one word or two?

i have heard that Tweedy digs bangs big time. and yours are quite awesome.

It's impossible to talk about John Cusack too much.

Or cleavage, but I've got a little problem about doing that, so, you know, I'm not a reliable thought there.

But still, John Cusack? Good. Spread the word as much as possible!

I think you look fantastic and you surely don't need braces or botox. Really!

And you don't look Dorothy Hammill at all.

Love the bangs! Susan-y or not. ;-)

I'm off to click.

jt said...

You show to much cleavage? Excuse me, but if you got it flaunt it! The cute little flat chested girls like me are insanely jealous!
I like bangs, I like how you can use them to do different things, they change the shape of your face, give you another option to play with. Bangs rock!

Immoral Matriarch said...

Tell him to stop being negative. Blogging>Cleaving>Cusack = Never too much.

Meg said...

Ms. Picket: I will do anything for Tweedy.

For a DKG: But don't tell John Cusack.

Alice: I'm ahead!!!!

Jen: Click and then click again. It's free.

JT: You won't be jealous when mine are hanging down to my knees one day.

Meg said...

Immoral Matriarch: You are so right. I guess there are worse problems than having a wife with cleavage.

The Nemesing One said...

Since you're talking about your hair, the age old question about the curtains matching the carpet comes to mind. Does it? Susan has nothing on you sweetie. You're looking good!

Anonymous said...

I know that this is hardly original, but you simply cannot show too much cleavage.

In the centuries to come, future scientists will marvel and guffaw that we thought that such a thing was even possible.

March on, bravely. And with cleavage.

Does john cusack like bangs?


Jen said...

Nice bangs! Oh Gosh, I hope that no one ever tells me to stop talking about Gosling because I'd have to go through withdrawl or shut my blog down. Actually, come to think of it, I actually started my blog so I could talk about Ryan so I wouldn't annoy my husband and friends so much. So, I say keep on talking about beer and bangs and Cusack and whatever else makes you happy.
