Kind of like a Mastercard commercial but not really…

Remember these advertisements:

Well, Saturday I was at the grocery store.

Cue my commercial!

Powder foundation by Because Your Fabulous that makes my skin look like porcelain and confuses people into thinking I’m actually 23 years old: $40

See. Porcelain complexion!
…Ok. Please ignore what appears to be the bird nest on my head.
I’m too busy to wash my hair.
I’ve penciled that in for Thursday.

Box of L’Oreal hair colour to hide the grey and further confuse people into thinking I’m 23 years old: $12

Mascara that makes me look like I have beautiful long eyelashes:…well, actually the mascara was free.
It’s from my blog sponsor Because Your Fabulous.

Ok, so where was I…oh yeah, free mascara...
Sexy little Lulu Lemon shape jacket that is form fitting and makes me look like I have boobs…sort of…
…well…ahem…that was free too.
My friend Jen gave it to me for my birthday.

Alright, it doesn’t look like I have a rack, but really I do. Close up.

Lulu Lemon yoga pants that make my ass go BAM! $130
…except they were a birthday gift from my mom, so I didn’t actually pay for them…

No, not my ass.
I thought of taking a picture of it, but I had just seen another blogger post a picture of her butt and I didn’t want to get accused of stealing ideas…so not my ass.
Anyway, my ass is so much juicier than this one.

Furry mukluk-type boots worn with yoga pants making the leg look even more leaner: $5
…I know you think I wrote the number down wrong, right?
Nope. They were $5.
I bought them on sale in the children’s department.

Alright, so what’s my total?

$57! $57 dollars to look like this!

Random hot-looking stranger pushing his grocery cart into the bread aisle where I was, and exclaiming:
“I had to go down 13 aisles, but I finally found the one with the good looking chick!” PRICELESS!!!

Even more priceless however, is the look on random hot-looking stranger’s face and the speed at which he beetled out of my aisle towards safety, when I exclaimed in a loud, jovial voice: “Buddy, you made my day! Now I’ve got something to blog about!”

Yeah. I know. My life could use a bit more depth.

    something like that makes you feel good and more beautiful.
    it's flattering!
    i just remembered one time when i was buying a lottery ticket, the man said to me- “are you sure your over 18?” after that i was smiling. I'm flattered!
    Two weeks ago when I applied for a Sears card, the saleslady told me, you're too young to own a house! I told her I'm 35 already.
    That made me smile again!
    Stay beautiful and keep on smiling!

    Why American men should boycott American women

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    HAHAHAHAHA! Can't believe you posted about LuLu Lemon! Perhaps we should incorporate Lulu Lemon into our “Super Hero” outfits when we join forces to rule the world. I mean, you can NEVER underestimate the power of a FINE ASS! By the way, I have the same yoga pants BUT my jacket is different so we will COMPLIMENT each other without being too matchy-matchy.

    I love this post- very clever! I want those yoga pants, very badly. I would live in yoga pants except of course my ass looks freakin- amazing in jeans and heels and sometimes I like to be mistaken for my girls sister. Okay all of the time unless I am going psycho postal mom on them about something. That's my shallowness, and I'm not ashamed of it.
    Bet your ass looks way better in them though.
    Have to say not a fan of the furry feet though, but that may just be because I live with 5 dogs and just walking through a room they have been in gives me that look for free. You did get an exceptional bargain, though.

    I am saving my pennies so I can fly over to Canadia or Lithuania or wherever and hire a car and drive to wherever the hell you are and go to that supermarket and just walk up and down that aisle until someone pays me a compliment – TOTALLY worth it!

    You look amazingly hot and fabulous and it is no surprise to me AT ALL that hot dude was hitting on you. Hell, I will hit on you while I'm there.

    So that's why women wear those boots. I've always liked them on women–I think they're sexy–but didn't realize why.

    Sometimes I think it'd be fun to be a woman and get all that attention from men. I wonder what a sex change costs?
