Getting Through : Lighten Up

Have a good laugh at yourself

Just call me Joan Rivers......

OK - I propose (and yes, I got the idea from Jersey Girl's last board posting and Joe's photo comments) that we set aside an area of the site for us to post old pictures of ourselves while we were, well, let's just say "beauty challenged". I think it would be absolutely hilarious to scan some old pictures of ourselves when we had to wash our hair with (Jules, remember this one:) orange dishwashing/laundry/hair/bodywash soap and wear 50 times worn alligator mouthed sneakers with hideous 80's headbands, frayed shorts that were high enough on the waist to choke us while short enough to show half our butt-cheeks coupled with terrible checkered shirts tied up around our boobs thinking we were so hot right then!! Of course, I will be the first to submit one of these hideous monstrosities while reminding myself of what make-up, tweezers, good shampoo and Gap have done for me.

Oh, I wish we had some pics of me and my sisters back them. Unfortunately, most of our older pictures were lost sometime during the gazilion times we moved. :( I remember we had to wash our hair with bar soap usually. And we couldn't afford conditioner. I don't know what all of your ethnicities are, but us 5 girls are half Dominican. And usually, Dominicans have really curly hair. I remember when I was younger I was jealous of those girls with the straight, Anglo-style hair. Imagine trying to get those knots out of tightly curled, slightly kinky hair! It was horrible. Needless to say, I don't think we looked all that beautifully feminine.

Lets hear it for Revlon, Maybeline and the Body Shop! "Revolutionary Women" who are now in their late 40's to 60's with their straggly long grey hair, boobs that sag down to their feet from not wearing a bra, thick glasses arm pit and leg hair and still using half a lemon for deodorant! not to mention the worry lines and their bodies marred from having so many children! they stand back and watch helplessly as their husbands go running after younger/more supple models! What a horrible life to have lived! i love God and read the Bible but I paint my nails, trim my hair even though it's long and pluck my eyebrows and wear make up! being a Christian doesn't mean be a bag lady! I feel sorry for those poor women, i really do!

Oh yes, I remember that we weren't even allowed to shave our legs - the teen girls would come up with all sorts of ingenious ways to get ourselves hairless!! This included using duct tape like wax strips, stealing old razors and cutting themselves to bloody pulp and it you found a pair of tweezers staying up all night tweezing individual hairs out!!! Oh what we had to endure!!!(reply to this comment

Dude! You had a budget???? We had to make due with forsake-all clothes (after the shepherds had taken all the best things) and hand-me-downs from the 50 other teens in the home.

Or, if we got provisioning, the reason they donated the clothes was because no-one would even buy them off the clearance rack for .99 cents anymore they were sooooo out of style!!!

We also had old curtains that we had the priviledge to turn into singing outfits. Or provisioned pregnancy dresses with thermal shirts under them. And hey - these were our "hot" outfits!! Hahahahaha!(reply to this comment
