Ouch



Radio question of the day:

20 percent of women were hoping for this on Valentine’s Day....while 60 percent of men were hoping for it. What is it?

********************************

What I learned today:

1. Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.

2. Every time you lick a stamp, you're consuming 1/10 of a calorie.

3. In ancient Egypt, Priests plucked EVERY hair from their bodies, including their eyebrows and eyelashes. Those priests! Very nice, but how many calories did they use doing it? Now, that would be useful information.

************************************

Answer to the radio question of the day:

An electronic gadget.

Huh! Not what I was hopin' for. Oh! wait. There is one that could help a gal out....

Plucking one's eyelashes would be painful. If that what it takes to be holy, then I'll just be unholy. What did my eyelashes ever do wrong?
Elecronic gadgets for Valentine's Day? Hmmm. Are you turning your blog into a porn site?

Plucking all those hairs sounds dreadfully painful. To bad they didn't have waxing back then. Would have saved them some time.

But how many calories do you burn when you lick a stamp and put it on on envelope? I'm hoping you break even.

The thing I REALLY want for V-day is... a yummy dinner out. The other thing is for the step daughter to be at a friend's.

I don't get it.

Stamps over here are all self adhesive now.
Damnit, there goes my exercise plan.

I was thinking of a special dinner, too, or possibly a gift certificate to a home improvement store.

And those eyebrow pluckers revered cats. Can't you just imagine them plucking the hairs off a cat? What would that look like?

(I think I'm going to be sick.)

I'm glad you're back home. I missed seeing you around. Although, I wasn't around much myself. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your sister.

well, i for one am quite glad i was not an egyptian priest. so maybe instead of brazillian waxing we should call it all egyptian waxing? i can just see their eyelids stuck shut from the wax,......bwahahahah!

The Devon Rex is a hairless cat, isn't it? It looks like ET. Cute, but not cuddly.

All this plucking and waxing - what a waste of time!

Lucy said...

But why did they do all that plucking - the priests. Maybe to help pass the time - while they listened to confessions, instead of doodling etc.

See mom & dad, there was some good that came from my brief stint as a head banger - exercise!
