Face it

 A post of mish mosh history with future gazing including visuals


Spring Crawfish Festival, back in the spring (April). Ah come on people let’s just face it some people are not meant to wear this type of clothing. This woman, as she appeared to be every bit of 35+, was over tanned and trying to look young by showing way, way too much butt cleavage. I won’t even mention her muffin top nor the fact that she needed a Brazilian on the opposite side. Nope not gonna bring it up not even a little like the way my lunch was in the back of my throat. Please my dear internets don’t let this be you, even if she were 20 that would be just too much of her private business hanging out. Don’t you think so?


This is my baby girl pealing and trying her fist crawdad, mudbug, crayfish, poor man’s lobster. She thought it was “okay”. Beloved likes them and me, eh they are…okay so I don’t like ‘em and besides who wants to work that hard for a ¼ teaspoon worth of meat not to mention head suckers. Eww! Can you feel me?



Where’s the crystal ball? Ah who needs one? So I have signed up baby girl for a drawing class over at the college, she likes drawing and is not too bad at it. But because she is 17 (a minor) I must take the class with her. Well it’s not real expensive and it would be a good mother daughter thing to do, so I’m gonna do it. Even though I cannot draw so good. Duh, you may say, that is the whole point of taking a class. I admit I’m looking forward to it after all I may pick up more than an eraser. Who knows I may even show you. What do you think about doing something you don’t normally do to help encourage your child

The over-exposed-one. Yuck...

Afraid I say the same, to the crawdad, mudbug, crayfish... -shudder- Could it be I have too many Yankee genes in me? ,-)

Yaaaaaa for drawing class for both of you. Excellent idea!

Nice pics! But great new template ... hasn't anyone else noticed it? That's the kind of abstract watercolor that I want to get loose enough to do.

About your art class--hope it helps all around, but portraiture or figure drawing is one of the most difficult, IMHO.

As for the crawdads, they're OK with me if someone else takes the tail meat out of the shell! I will never love another crustacean more than boiled Maine lobster--and I'm willing to dig out all that meat!

What's a "muffin top"? I object to the love handles! I suppose they help hold up her low riders. A tiny touch of crack, well, only if you're young enough.

I think it's so lovely that you're doing a drawing class with your daughter. That's so sweet. You'll have wonderful experiences together and, Paige, I can't wait to see what you draw! Please do put the finished pieces up here!

Wow, that is some muffin top and coin slot for sure. I do miss the days when jeans came up to the waist, miss it for both wearing and looking at.

Cool masks indeed.

Great idea for a mother - daughter activity. Baby Girl is artistic like her mama, I assume?

Me and Kelly did a mosaic project once. You got me thinking about doing something else fun and creative like that again with her.

2 more days until the cast comes off!!

Dear Lord. If I ever dress like that I hope that someone puts me out of my misery.

I think the drawing class is a great idea. Mother daughter time is always. I hope you'll share you new skill with us.

I also think the mother daughter class is a wonderful idea. I'd do it on a heartbeat.

On my way home from Scotland I saw a lady in the airport, she must-a been 80-some? She was top heavy and very old and wrinkled. From the waist down she was wearing the tightest, skinny jeans and what looked like 6 ins stilettos heels. I SOOOO wanted to tell her it wasn't a good look, but I didn't have the heart.

eek, too much muffin and not enough top! No need to show all that. A little goes a long old way.

Everybody around my place is mud bug crazy, except me. Just give me a decent portion of fish, that I don't have to work for.

Love the idea of taking a class with your daughter. Excellent. You'll make lots of fun memories together and I can't wait to see what you create.:-)

You played with the page editor! What do you think?

I posted about the secret in my Grandma's drawers...were you surprised?

Dapoppins said...

Ha, so glad the lady the market wasn't me, even if I thought the red top was cute, but I would wear it with something under-it as my belly is not fit for the light of day and my pants tend to sag in the back and often offer up that view of a valley if I am not careful....

Hi Paige .. loved the masks .. the body I could leave - though the top looked pretty and the skin looked quite glossy .. the fish - delicious .. I'll join your hubby anyday! .. but a could experience for your daughter ..

And drawing classes .. great - I can't either .. but what an opportunity ..

Enjoy - Hilary

Is there a reason why you call everyone "internets"? It strikes me as funny (like, I am laughing hard over it), and I am not sure you mean it to be funny...

Stephen said...

Muffin-top??? You crack me up. Though I've never heard it called that before, it adds a humorous touch to the visual. On the poor man's lobster: I've never tried them. Who knows though? The family and I are heading to South Padre next week. I might try some unusual seafood, just to keep in the spirit of your post. Oh, and good luck with the art class. It sounds like fun.

Did that poor, pitiful woman know you were taking her picture? Oh my gosh that is so ugly! I never have understood why anyone, but especially older people, want to show off their fat. My poor mother-in-law is like that and she's in her 60s! It's plum embarrassing sometimes to be out in public with her.

I know you're not telling the truth Paige - I bet you're a fantastic drawer. Drawer? Is that the right word? Well anyway, we want to see results from your classes, so make sure you post pics!

LOL< funny! At any age, that's just gross.

The wall-mask clay art is fun I think!
Even at the beach I wear a t-shirt over my flab, er sexy curves...
Never had me a crawdad...
Ya know stuff i used to think wasn't good can be if you wait some time n look again- Maybe you are4 your worst critic?!

"Scetch-Artist!" Deanna...
