Two posts in one day-Queen of Procrastination

This is a lament about my neck.  I'm a little obsessed about it but  I'm trying to get over it.

I will never have a scrawny chicken neck problem.  I've always had a short and rather thick neck.  As I age the skin is slackening and it only takes a slight downward glance to give me a bulgy neck/double chin sort of look.

I searched the net looking for neck information.  There are many sites on plastic surgery and almost as many on useless neck exercises.  YOU CAN'T EXERCISE SKIN, PEOPLE!

I found some hairstyles recommended for short necks.


Not bad-I might achieve this in a year.


And a hairstyle recommended to distract from your neck and jawline.  This one isn't me.

I found a website called freakingnews.com with photoshopped celebrities.



And after wasting more time reading bad plastic surgery websites and looking at celebrity deformities that are self-inflicted, I decided that my neck isn't too bad.  I'm not a teenager, I'm not even a hot young twenty -something, my thirties have come and gone, but I might not actually care.  I think I don't.  As long as I don't look in a mirror.  I'm working on it.

Hey, that's one of the great things about getting older! You just don't give a damn anymore. Oh, I still want to look nice, but I'd rather work on my art than worry about wrinkles and bags.

Shawna, you are so funny!! Love the comment you left me, you are right on!! I would love to do some posts showing rooms with colour of what not to do (there are so many out there) but then that designer or colour consultant might one day see it and be UPSET! So this is a good way to show my readers without being overt about it!! Thanks!

Can't slip anything past my attentive readers!!
