You should all be jealous of my stunning beauty
Okay, well, I'm not stunning.

But I am having a good makeup day today.

And a good hair (er, sheitel) day today also.

I have nothing else useful to say except that I feel all sophisticated because I'm wearing black pantyhose instead of "nude" pantyhose. It's a shame there's nothing about me that actually IS sophisticated. Oh well.

Oh, also, someone told me on Monday that I need to LOVE my eyebrows. I hate them. I can't love them. I must do something about this. I wonder if you could have your eyebrows Alased just like any other "unwanted hair." This is definitely something to look into! :)

Re: sadly...no

That's a darned shame.

Hey...! They put lasers IN YOUR EYES for laser eye surgery!

no.
I used to only wear opaque tights. Then I talked with a couple rabbis and asked about it and they all said I could wear regular, boring, plain, pantyhose.

Very weird thing to be asking a rabbi. I felt a little ridiculous.

Seth, I think, would rather die than ask such questions.

Does Seth worry about his Nude Pantyhose?

I'm not worried about mine

It's yours that concerns me...

Re: I'm not worried about mine

Is it because mine have nicly printed flowers on them... or that they walk off by themselves?

Re: I'm not worried about mine

I think it's the fact that you wear them over your head to obscure your features while you're carrying heavy weaponry...

Re: I'm not worried about mine

It's comments like the one above that Joel makes quite often which have prompted me to invest in a rubber mallet :)

Is that a Star Trek costume?

Re: I'm not worried about mine

well, yes, but he's also wearing a tie-dyed labcoat and a jester's cap. The uniform actually belongs to allahsulu but Seth had it for a long time.

oops, that's allah_sulu

Keep it up, and the rabbi is going to have an odd picture of what Ziv does in his off time.

I definitely send my husband. I would die of embarrassment if I had to ask some of the things my husband asks for us/me.
galads_forest From: galads_forest Date: March 23rd, 2005 06:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
And he does? Mine won't. He tells me to ask myself. I hate that!

galads_forest From: galads_forest Date: March 23rd, 2005 07:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
I try to tell him that it's normal for him to do that. He is too embarrassed about it himself and/or is worried he'll get the facts wrong. He says that it's my body and I know about it better than he does. This is true, but to talk to a man about my own body? Eew! I've gotten pretty good about doing it though since I can't seem to convince Avri to do it. Handing over envelopes is much easier (in Hamilton our Rabbi doesn't have a box). It's the big questions I still try and refuse to do myself.
From: lola100 Date: March 23rd, 2005 08:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Envelopes? My husband goes to shul with my panties in his pocket. I would just die if I had to give it to the Rabbi.
galads_forest From: galads_forest Date: March 23rd, 2005 08:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, I generally try to stuff said items into bags or envelopes (depending on type and size). I wish he'd do this. Wanna convince him?
From: lola100 Date: March 23rd, 2005 09:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, right. He doesn't seem like the type that is easily convinced. Anyway, since you've been doing it all along, it'll be even harder to convince him to start now.
galads_forest From: galads_forest Date: March 23rd, 2005 10:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
Most of the time I do. Once in a while I'll convince him. I do it very begrudgingly. I basically decided it wasn't worth the fight, so I do it. He's more embarrassed then me, I should't make him, but it's not right...
From: lola100 Date: March 23rd, 2005 11:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
I've been married 8 years. I guess my husband has gotten used to it, since there was no way I was ever going to do it. And if he wouldn't do it, then no one would do it, and then things would get delayed.... he could never have that ;)
galads_forest From: galads_forest Date: March 24th, 2005 01:14 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, I caved because of the delay part too. If I didn't care so much he'd prolly do it. But I do and he knows I do. (I know... TMI) Sometimes when we have an awkward shailah we compromise by going together. This has worked pretty well.
leahmiriam From: leahmiriam Date: March 23rd, 2005 11:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well you are not haredi so I think the pantyhose are fine. It's not like they look like you are going bare legged. Hey, is bare legged a real word?
From: lola100 Date: March 23rd, 2005 04:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Wax your eyebrows.

I wear black tights. Nude hose when I get dressed formal. What's wrong with nude hose?
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: March 23rd, 2005 04:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Nothing's wrong with nude hose. Just that I wear them Every. Single. Day. Without exception. These sheer black pantyhose look all different and stuff!

As for waxing, sure I can do that. I've done that. The problem has been finding a place to do it and getting myself there on a regular basis. The last time I had them done was a year ago. And before that was a year previous. It's just not something I remember to do. Plus, I loved the place I finally found to do it last year, except that it was right next to my old office in DC and it's kinda far from where I work now...

I am jealous of your stunning beauty. You are quite beautiful.

*gosh*

Um.

Thanks!

When we get together on Sunday, I will give you makeup tips for your eyebrows that will keep you from having to wax/pluck/injure yourself.
