Are You There, Oprah? It's Me, Dawn....


Ok...let's review the list of reasons I need a fabulous makeover and spa getaway...all courtesy of Oprah, of course...


Exhibit A....I recently doused my freshly styled hair with lavender/vanilla scented febreeze...in my defense, I thought it was my hairspray...it didn't even register that my hairspray is actually a pump bottle...nope, I just grabbed it and went to town...It even took me a few minutes to realize that my hair was wet and smelling like a lavender field in France before the horror of my actions set in...

Exhibit B...I was excitedly telling Irish Dancer Girl (age 7) that I'd found the perfect costume for Halloween...Sue Sylvester from Glee!  Boom!  Easy!  Just slap on a track suit, grab a megaphone, throw on a short blonde wig, and allow my snarky sarcasm to flow freely from my lips...it's beautiful...right?  Nope...Irish Dancer Girl just looked at me and said, "uh, isn't she taller than you...a lot taller than you?...and...(long pause...while she looks at my tummy...) "you know..."(looks at my tummy again...) GRRRR....

Exhibit C...While toasting a bagel for my son, I remembered I had to toss in a load of laundry...zipped over to the washing machine and turned it on...back to the bagel...that I apparently "toasted" in the refrigerator on my way to the washing machine...oh...did I mention that after the wash cycle had completed, my clothing was gone? I had no idea that my clothes could become invisible!  I just hope they don't disappear while I'm wearing them...that would be blight on the city of Tucson...chaos would erupt all over the southwest...{{shudder}}

Clearly, this shows that a spa vacation and makeover is needed, right? If I looked better and was revitalized from the spa, I would never behave in such a manner...So come on, Oprah!  Help a whack job out...pleeeease????


Have a fabulous day!

If I were in charge, I would totally give you the spa day just after reading Exhibit A :)

Good to hear from you, and thanks for the giggle.

Oh, the Febreeze one is a classic!!
Rebecka said…
I wonder if the folks at Fabreeze have ever considered the idea of making a spray on hair refresher?

Where did the laundry go?
Tracy said…

Randi Troxell said…
ruh-roh... yep! i think you totally deserve on this one!!!
Thanks for stopping by, and I love your place! Yes, you need a spa vacation. In fact, I am going to start a letter campaign to Oprah today just for you.

Oh you deffinately need a spa vacation! I hate days like that, but I love the humor spin you put on it!!
If it makes you feel better, I once grabbed what I thought was my lip gloss and started putting it on without looking at the tube first. Wondering why it was scratchy, I looked down and discovered I was using mascara! Yep, black lips. And this took place while I was in the car at a stop light. Isn't it nice of us to entertain the public at large?
Jingle said…
Yup! I agree! You need it! LOL!
SHELLY said…
The febreeze alone should get you in, right? No-brainer!
Devri said…
I agree with everyone lol.. just want to say HI
Captain Dumbass said…
Febreeze. That was impressive.

I would absolutely vote for you to get a spa week from Oprah.

The febreeze alone shows that you need it!

You always find the most hilarious little posters. "I'll just have to be a horrible warning" is my new life quote.
Dawn said…
Hey,Girl! I hope you win that make-over!!! How fun!

This was too funny. =)

Have a wonderful week!

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…

Chilly Update...

I hate this disease with a passion...more on that in a moment...

First and foremost, there aren't enough words in the English language to convey my most sincere gratitude for the amazing love and support you've all shared with my family. I am completely overwhelmed and very humbled by it all. I've shared all of your comments and emails with Chilly and the kiddos. It has meant so much to us! Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

I wish I could write that Chilly is fine and coming home tomorrow. I wish I could go back to last Friday when every fiber of my being was screaming at me that Chilly was having a heart attack. I wish I would have pinned him to the ground and shoved an aspirin down his throat when he put me off about his symptoms. I wish he would have agreed to go to the ER...Sadly, I can't turn back time...

We were told today that Chilly has suffered a stroke in addition to a heart attack. These two events occured together...meaning, he had the stroke w…
