if dreams were lightning & thunder was desire, this old house would have burnt down a long time ago.

...i'm dying to be in a burlesque show one day.

before it's too late.

i'd keep it tasteful, i promise.

also, i wish Husbear liked it when i wear red lipstick.
i'd wear it every day.

    Chris hates it when I wear lipstick too. He doesn't like to kiss me when it's on, and who wants that!! So, I typically end up reverting to chap stick.

    OK, you SHOULD wear red lipstick AND do a burlesque show. If I looked like you, I would absolutely do both.

    i have a hunch he doesnt like it because he's not used to it. and i will take pride in the fact that my husband loves how i look with zero makeup.
    but when i'm out and about during the day, not risking forgoing any smooches, i think i'm gonna go for the lips!
    just need to find a smudgeproof killer red.
    i will keep you posted.

    as for the burlesque- i'm still investigating. i'm sure there's a class for it here in NYC.

    MAC lipstick, in LADYBUG RED. Go and get it!

    okay, so i went to get the mac lipstick you recommended, and the saleswoman introduced me to the "retro matte" version of that color, called Ruby Woo.
    It. Is. FABULOUS.
    It lasted all day, and Husbear couldn't feel it when he kissed me, nor did any come off on his lips!
    He couldn't keep those paws off me all evening. Success!!

    Also, I was compared to a celebrity four different times today. i got one Marilyn, one Madonna, and two Gwen Stefani's! I was beyond elated. Especially when two high school boys came up to me in Union Square shyly and asked if I was indeed Gwen. I cracked up and thanked them a thousand times. AWESOME.

    In other news, I went to my first burlesque show tonight.
    It was a bit raunchy.
    I think when I do it, it'll be more like chicago cabaret style dance than stripping with booby tassles.
    how awkward!
