But What If I'm A GLAMOUR ADDICT Now?!?

So...

Yeah....

Remember my one day brush with SUPER GLAMOUR, when lovely Leanne sent a TRAVELING RED DRESS to me?

That was FUN! Wasn't it!?!  Yeah...and then you're supposed to put that dress back in the magic box and send it off again.

It's not supposed to stay here.  It's supposed to be a TRAVELING red dress.  TRAVELING.

It's supposed to have been on its way back to Leanne.  Like--a long time ago.

Ooops!


But... what if I kinda liked it.  What IF, this awakened a WHOLE NEW KAREN?!?

    1. Mark, you're hilarious. You're so weak for some glamour makeup and over the top scenarios.

  2. Yep, this is where it ALL starts, Karen - right here, in that red dress! From now on, you'll be drawn to wonderful frockage, impractical shoes, fake hair (I know ALL about that, I love a wig) retro/vintage fripperies and multiple accessorising.
    Hurrah!
    Whatever makes the chores more bearable, go for it! Of course, I prefer to wear all the glamorous stuff, but NOT do any housework, I find that the perfect combination.
    You know how gorgeous you are, don't you? I hope you do, cos LOOK at you, Glamour Queen!
    You may be sending the dress back to Leanne - but there are plenty more dresses out there just waiting for you to fill them with sexy Karen-ness! xxxxxxxxx

    1. It's true, Curtise: I am developing a greater love for dresses. I haven't liked dresses for a long time, but lately I've discovered my inner...er...girl.

    2. Get a pink dress, for your inner girl.

    1. I totally enjoyed myself more this time Sherilin. I'm in my element when I'm being an idiot.

    2. idiot-ville is a comfortable place, is it not?
      i've been feeling more friendly toward dresses lately too. i'm not sure what's come over me, but i've actually considered trying to find one to buy. i haven't worn a dress for anything other than a wedding or funeral in many years, but somehow the idea that they might be nice is sneaking up on me.

  5. Damn. Glamor. You're making me think about it. That's probably not going to go anywhere good.

    1. okay, thanks Leanne. I'm glad you're not totally annoyed with me, because I have a serious mental deficiency when it comes to accomplishing things on time. The dress will return, and then I guess you'll have me on a "DO NOT SEND TO THIS PERSON" list. :(

  7. So, this is why I don't enjoy chores. No glamor.

  8. You must have had to work super duper hard vacuuming considering it was not plugged in....maybe you can show us how you glamour sweat.

    Trust you to post a wild and crazy post about how awesome housework can be.

    1. Melissa, I laughed out loud when I read this. I was sooooo DELIGHTED that somebody noticed the thing wasn't even plugged in. Honestly, that's why you're the DECORATOR EXTRAORDINAIRE: you've got the EYE for detail!

  9. Ha !!! Too funny! Did you know Aunt Pat used to put the same mole on her face when she went out bar hopping in her silver lame tights??? Yeah and one night just before she left the house my dad said " Pat you got something on your face!" and wiped it off. She was so pissed off at him. They laughed about this for years!!!!
    I hope you served your hubby his dinner wearing this!!!!!

  11. You, girl, are not only glamorous, you are SAUCY!

    I don't even want to know how much time you invested in this blog post.

    1. Don't think of it as investing time in a blog post, Grace. Think of it as INVESTING TIME in boring housework avoidance. There. Now it's an ART.

  17. In the picture of you doing the dishes, the happy glamour way...is that Jack's rendition of you running to the hills or the looney bin on the fridge????

    ReplyDelete
  18. Actually it looks like Maria in her opening scene from The Sound of Music.

    1. well let me look.... It was some art assignment in Jack's class and he wouldn't tell me anything about it, just responded with the typical "I don't know" bored kid answer when I asked who it was of. I'm guessing it's some Kwanzaa thing. I'll have to ask his teacher.
