Glam may not be hosting her usual confessional party this week, but she is totally excused and we love her.  And to show her some bloggy lurve I am going to cleanse my soul as usual!

  • I really have been super careless slightly off track with Weight Watchers
  • I am glad we had the snack topic this week.  It gave me great ideas.
  • Now I must apply them.
  • Next week will tie into it.
  • I am really eating a ton of humble pie this round.
  • When I was a 20 something and lost the weight for the first time, I didn't get it.
  • You have a few kids.
  • Go over 35  over 30 you are no longer 25 and things slow down....w...a...y d...o...w...n!
  • I spouted off all the text book answers to women who were the age I am now.  
  • I was so smart!  Of course they could make time to exercise.
  • Are you kidding me?  Yes, I can totally make the time.
  • But let's face it.  When faced any amount of "Me" time I am probably going to opt for sleeping, watching TV, or both.
  •  I have never been a real fan of exercise
  • But there is this little part of me that wants to.
  • I usually keep her pretty buried with other jobs.
  • Jobs like climbing up and down the stairs more than three times in one day
  • That way she fills as though she has exercised for the day.
  • Then I can reward her and I with chocolate chips a happy dance and a pat on the back!
What burdens do you need to lift?

Red Shoes

Jenny Matlock
Since the alphabet is over, now we are visiting the colors of the rainbow!  If you want to know more about it, go ahead and click on Miss Jenny's button there.  

I was born with flat feet.  No, I haven't started the truth and lies yet...that is part 2 of this post.  I really was born with flat feet.  I had to wear the most butt ugly white corrective shoes on the planet.  I had planned to scan a picture of me wearing them, but I never got the original from my mom(totally my fault since I never even asked!) I was very little age 3 to 5 at most--though my mom says I may have been as young as one.  I  wore them for two years.  Two very long years.  Looking back, I am amazed at how I remember this.  The only thing I really remember about them is how ugly I thought they were.  I don't remember how they felt.  Just that they were UGLY!  All I wanted was pretty shoes like my sister.  I wanted red shoes.  Definitely not white.  No way!  And black would be boring.  No they had to be red.  

I don't really remember that magic day.  The day the ugly shoes came off.  But my mom held true to her promise to a little girl who wanted nothing more than a pretty pair of red Mary Janes.  I can remember red shoes, but I wasn't able to recall the style.  I had to ask mom about that.  Maybe that is why I am drawn to the color red. It has a wonderful memory attached to it!
Now let's get our lie on!
Let's review:
1.  I was the center of attention at a cast party:  True.   Where to begin with this?  I had my wisdom teeth out about 6 weeks prior.  Everything that could go bad did.  I could only DRINK my meals...shakes!  Yum.  I lost 25 pounds and was looking good!  Fast forward.  Went to a community play with my on/off boyfriend to see our drama teacher perform.  Well since half the drama class was part of the play, it made sense to invite his pet(me) to the cast party.  I had dyed my hair red.  It turned a lovely auburn shade.  Really looked good.  I wore jeans and a black shirt.  At the party, I had my date, the teacher, and three other guys from school all perched around little old me.  And yes, I ate every moment of that up!!!

2.  I have been toilet papering.  True.  And more than once.  On one such occasion I was at Girl's Camp where we TP'd one of the Junior Counselor's to her bed, as well as her mother.  Funny thing, daughter had natural nails that we would die for.  Her claws came up through that paper in her sleep and it scared us to death.  

3.  I played spin the bottle.  False.  Nope.  Never did.  

And now....

1.  I didn't get my license until I was 21.
2.  I failed the driver's test three times.
3.  I have never got a ticket.

Fake what!?

Have you seen or heard of the padded panties?  Yeah with silicon inserts?  You know to give it that "real" feel.

I saw an article about this here.  It is where I first learned about them.  At the risk of dating myself, I seem to remember an episode of Laverne and Shirley in which tiny sweet Shirley got herself a hinney enhancer.  (Can't remember what they called it.) And there she was bebopping around with her fake plastic hiney.  It was hysterical.  And how about Vicki Lawrence as Mama with all her extra padding?  Wasn't that totally hilarious.  I always got a kick out of that character, especially when Carol Burnette was there to play Eunice!  Okay, way way off course and totally dating myself.  Google it youngsters! 

After I saw this, it got my wheels turning.  And I knew a question was being raised!  A fellow bloggy friend of mine Catherine, at Wink at Me has her take on the product too.  She is a hoot by the way!  Her take was happily different than my own but not too far from my thinking.  She talks about women having yet another way to "misrepresent" themselves.  Well I didn't think of it that way.  But she is absolutely right.

I am just thinking of these women who put themselves through the ringer to be thin.  I am talking model thin.  But what happens to our breasts when we have no fat left? They are almost non existent!  So the same would be true of our backsides?  So now we are rail thin and we have no shape!  So we buy padded bras and padded underwear!  Well I don't know about you, but I am so glad I have real curves!  Because at the end of the day, when I shed my clothes and change to the jammies my curves stay with me.

What do you think of padded panties?  Have we gone to far in designing the "perfect" woman?  Is it just another way to mess with our delicate egos?
