Against all odds.

For some strange reason, a good number on both MC Forums seem to want to see pictures of other members, while at the same time not posting pictures of themselves. And even more strangely, I seem to be one of the popular attractions on this front, something I really cant work out.

Its not like I’m young, pretty, or indeed as some would probably hope for, I dont have silver skin either, and its certainly not made of metal lol! I’m just a plain, fairly boring looking fifty something who seems to attract a lot of attention for my looks all the same. Alright, there are pictures of me on here, and on the Garden and Forum, but all the looks are hidden under a silver zentai suit, quite handy I would say, and quite a relief I would have said for others, but anyway… Well, of course there is a faceshot here, a small one on my avatar,  I would have said about the right size. It is a few years old now, but still a reasonable match, as something else will prove very soon.

And alright, I’ve seen pics of a few, I’ve even met 2 members, so I certainly know what they look like! There are 1 or 2 others that I’d love to know what they look like (or a better image in one case), but I respect privacy all the same. The funny thing is, some people are just so linked to their avvies, its well known that most have an image of Jo related to what is probably her most famous one, I’m sure many know which I’m talking about. And does Heather look anything like Louise Brooks lol, I’d love to think so, because of her avvies, but somehow I suspect not.

The one I really regret never seeing a picture of, and wont do now, is the one many know as Sara C, or Castle depending on where you knew her from. Though I suspect she too looked nothing like the image I had of her, so maybe it was for the best?

Anyway, alright, what some seem to have been waiting for, no idea why? I’m not a model, my boobs arent that big, and indeed I would say I’m probably a bit butch looking too, just with long hair! This was taken soon after I got home from having the hair extensions put in last week, so if I look a bit frazzled, you know why!

Hope no one is screaming in horror at this moment lol! 😛 And dont expect any more either!

Right, the video tonight, if anyone is still here after seeing that. I suspect the blog title is a total giveaway, and yes, its the Phil Collins version, I certainly was a fan of his. I know nothing about the film to be honest, just loved the song, and rather apt here.

Why do I suspect the site visit numbers might jump up over the next couple of days lol?

Pretty in pink?

aka Whatever happened to Molly Ringwald?

Alright, 90% of this blog has nothing to do with the film, but I still think its a pertinent question!

Most of it actually relates to events today, and on Thursday, before anyone asks. The pretty in pink bit, well the colour scheme for the company dinner this year is black, and yes, you guessed it, pink! I’ve got a pink top I will be wearing, though which one depends on how warm the weather is , on Thursday. Black trousers and jacket though, as then I can be comfortable in flats, as opposed to being hopeless in heels if I wore a dress lol!

Ah, today, yes, the hair extensions are now in, and got a bob hairstyle into the deal, even if the fringe is far more limited than the delectable Ms Brooks would manage, but blame that on my hair, not her. And alright, I’m blonde, but hey, arent they supposed to have more fun? 😉 All I’m prepared to say at this point is that it looks, and feels great, and there are pics, which I might post sometime when I dont mind disappointing my fans as to how dull (and butch) I look in real life, as opposed to the image of Robotunit8 they probably have lol. And no, not a hint of silver anywhere on my body either!

Maybe if I’m asked nicely, and bribed accordingly…?

Mind, if I were to find a pink flapper style dress…nope!

Still wondering what happened to Molly Ringwald though? 😛

I hate to be the bearer of bad news (or good, if you see it that way?), but this will very likely be the last posting here for nearly a week. 4 late (or lateish) shifts for the rest of the week, and no internet at all on Thursday evening, as I will be otherwise engaged. Friday isnt too bad, but as I will be trying to catch up on at least 36 hours of stuff, you get my drift?

How many are assuming Psychedelic Furs at this point? Wrong! 😛 Its a song from the movie though, and you might just recognise the group name too, I’ve played their music here before, one very famous song does come to mind. Its not the official video, its shots from the movie coupled with a great OMD song, hope you like.

‘Cause I’m a blonde

Silliness blog alert…

Well alright, only because its coloured that way, but anyway… Snag is, in terms of volume, and in terms of hair at the front, its as thin as the naturalness of me being a blonde. Well alright, not quite that thin, but as a couple know, it wouldnt qualify as Dolly Parton type volume lol. Alright, nowadays some of her’s is a wig, but… what, surely you knew? 😉 I’m not as big as Dolly is naturally somewhere else, but thats beside the point!

Yes, you can cheat. If I wanted a pair like Dolly, I could use enhancers. I could also have cosmetic surgery, but thats expensive, and rarely looks natural anyway! I might actually use enhancers sometimes, but not that often in public. You can also cheat on the hair. If you can get, and afford a really good wig (and Dolly clearly can), then you can go down that route. But the more modern thing (and even at my age I can try to be modern) is to give hair extensions a try.

No, I’m not going for the Rapunzel look, with hair halfway down my back and all that, though I suspect it might end up longer than now all the same. Hopefully it will give me more volume on top (needed, especially for social events at this time of year), and hopefully I can get more of a natural looking, and longer fringe than at present. How well it all works out, ask me after Tuesday! I’d love for it all to work out so well that I can go for a long bobbed look, but that might be a step too far I suspect?

The other option would have been to book in at a hair salon in Chrystal Heights, but the snag is, the only place I can find that is in some wonderful fiction lol! Mind, if I did, I’d probably have the Dolly Parton type boobs thrown in as part of the deal, wanted or not! As some know, I have a wonderful lady who looks after my nails (with colour), my face (with facials), and my back and knees (poor things) with plenty of massages. She is also quite a wonder with make up, which will be handy on Thursday too. No, I dont do it myself, well hardly ever, mainly because I have a slight tremor in my hands, so doing anything delicate is a bit too much of a tricky operation for me. So when an important event comes round, she gets the call. As is my current thing, I mentioned a 20’s look (cant think why…) but how practical it is, will have to wait and see, have left the details in her very capable hands. A blonde version of LB would be wonderful, but making me look that good would either need a miracle, or a Chrystal Heights type transformation lol.

Oh, the video, you really want one? 😉 I think the title of this gives it away really. So, here is Julie Brown, from Earth Girls Are Easy, this is your moment.
