Time for a bit of surgery?

No, let me say before anyone thinks otherwise, I dont mean major surgery on my knee…yet! I suspect that next autumn/winter I’m going to have to bite the bullet, and actually get it operated on, but not just yet! I’m also trying to give people chance to get me a new cybernetic body, or at least a knee joint by then, but not too hopeful on that!

No, this will be surgery, but of the cosmetic kind! No, not breast enhancement, I’ll leave that to the stories, thank you very much. Mind, if someone was prepared to pay for them to maybe grow a little, and make them a little more toned, I might not say no, but anyway…But no, I dont want ‘melons’ on my chest, thank you very much.

As a few who have been around a couple of years, or more would know, I have a slight tremor in my hands, which makes the idea of doing my own make up, just about impossible. Its fine for most general things, but if I try to do anything delicate, doesnt work! Anyway, a couple of years ago (just over), an ex work colleague in Newbury offered to take the issue off my hands, by providing me with the semi permanent make up look. Yes, it looked great, indeed it still does, though as is the norm with this sort of thing, it does need topping up every couple of years, or so. Thats right, its time for that!

So, 5 weeks today, I could jokingly say I’m going under the knife, but more truthful to say, I’m going under the make up tool! In truth, its been so long since I had the eyebrows waxed, I have no idea how well they look, but I know the lips still look good, as does the beauty spot! Yes, I need to get a bit of body maintenance done before then, believe me! At least there is one blessing now, I can afford it, just about. Why do I say that? Because its not just the treatment, its the train fare to the South of England, an overnight stay in a hotel, so, if by some miracle, someone wants to help with the cost, feel free to offer lol!

Sadly, as far as I know, the chamber to give me the full Jean Harlow makeover still doesnt exist, but fingers are crossed. Not that I know how I’d cope with looking 25 again, but anyway…lol! Equally, only being 5 foot 2 tall, hmm? But fine, for that image, I’d do it! 😀

No, the lady doing it isnt strictly a doctor, as such, but this one came to mind, as opposed to using the obvious Thompson Twins track. I know, 70’s disco, but you’ll survive lol…

Goodbye to Hollywood

As promised, the tale of the last 2 days of the holiday, though strictly, I didnt get back here until this morning, but anyway…

Friday, there was a march in Los Angeles, to mark the centenary of the Armenian genocide in Turkey, so the bus services around town were a bit chaotic, to say the least. So, I decided I was going to go down town by Metro, and see what central L.A looked like. I did consider going further afield, but because I wanted to have pretty much everything packed before I went out Friday evening, I took the easy option. Nice, but nothing exciting. I then turned around, headed back to Hollywood, and a late lunch, my last big meal in town. So yes, I ended up back at that nice Italian restaurant, eating pizza, and admiring the Hollywood sign, which was a good way to end things. After that, back along the boulevard, said goodbye to Jean’s prints at the Chinese Theatre, and at her star, then back to base.

Then, with all I could pack, packed, I headed out for a movie, and some networking. A wonderful pair of ladies I git to know through Twitter, invited me to their birthday party, and movie, and to do a little networking beforehand. So, there I was, in my grey, clingy dress, selling myself to other folk. Yes, it was fun, and even if I get no more out of it than a couple of book sales, it will have been worth it. The movie was good fun, Dance, Girl, Dance, starring a young Lucille Ball, and Maureen O’Hara, and I had a wonderful time.

I got back late, only to discover that Prime Time had let me know my shuttle would be arriving 30 minutes earlier than expected. So, a very early morning on Saturday, just as well, as the shuttle showed up 10 minutes before the revised time! Which then drove down Hollywood Boulevard, so I said goodbye to Jean again.

The flights back were fine, and in all honesty, nothing really to tell. Tomorrow, I get back to normal, a bit of job hunting, a phone interview, and other general things. Thursday, two actual job interviews, face to face, though one of those has yet to send me minor details, like where I’m going, so…rolls eyes. The other thing I need to do is arrange to sign on at the Job Centre (or whatever its called nowadays), as my notice period payment runs out next Sunday, so then I will officially be unemployed!

And thats it! The few who know about both blogs will get 2 different pieces, the rest of you, depends which side of the fence you fall lol!

The video, well, it almost matches that film title

The highlight, well, I guess it has to be Forest Lawn, doesnt it? 😉
