Soooooo Natural!

When I was in high school, I would frequently hang out at the home of my then-best friend Tracy (or Tracie, Traci, depending on the day -- oh, and the "i" was always dotted with a circle). Tracy's mom was a nutjob. Seriously. She was really scary mean. She insult me to Tracy while I was standing there, or scream irrationally at Tracy while I was there. She stayed married to the man who molested Tracy. And she pronounced "squash" as "squarsh" and "Washington" as "Warshington." But she did teach me how to knit, so she wasn't all bad.

My biggest issue with Tracy's mom was her eyebrows. She was one of those weird women who pluck their eyebrows out completely and then paint them back on. I really don't get this. Why not just shape them and then fill in any bald spots?? I had a friend years ago who was an occasional Baywatch extra, absolutely gorgeous, yet she did this too. I couldn't fathom what possessed her to do it! And these women never paint them on where they should be. They're always waaaaaaay up high, so the woman's face looks perpetually surprised. Not a good look. At all.

Of course, nothing is as bad as people who tattoo them on!! I found this on Ugliest Tattoos (http://ugliesttattoos.com/):

That is one scary mofo.

Yikes! Why would anyone do this? I too find the drawn on eyebrows bizarre. I know a lot of women who spend way too much time worrying about their eyebrows. I don't know any men who do, nor do they seem all that interested in women's eyebrows either.

I'm with you. Sad about Tracy. I also don't understand fake fingernails that are so obviously fake. What is that about? Status that you can afford them? Ignorance in believing others might think they are real? Really? What is this about?

Ahhh, Inga, that takes me back to the wonderful days of high school and Lee Press-on nails. We thought they looked great. Of course, we were kids.... But adults? They should know better.
