I got the idea of weekly wrap ups from one of my favorite blogs, People I Want to Punch in the Throat. Its author, Jen, is also one of the writers in this awesome book pictured above, I Just Want to Pee Alone.
Here’s my first weekly wrap up, gathered largely from my Facebook feed (it pays to have witty, humorous and completely weird friends):
1) Merkins and Pedazzling
Somehow I came across this other awesome blog, My Husband Ate All My Ice Cream, and from it I learned about vajazzling, pedazzling (colloquial: pejazzle), and other ways of misusing your Original Bedazzler crafting toolkit.
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, this is pedazzling:
And you want me to find out what in the world is a merkin? It’s a pubic wig. I’ll leave that to your imagination.
2) Bitchy Resting Face – “A disorder that makes women look like they’re bitchy, when they’re not”
It has already been established that I suffer from BRF. Apparently, “sometimes, I really do.” It’s a terrible, terrible condition. I mean, a lot of times I have a bitchy face – but I’m really not a bitch!
When I was a 1L in law school, I would get an attack of BRF (unbeknownst to me), and I would wonder why no one wanted to share a library table with me, even during finals when it was packed. I would wonder if I had forgotten to wear deodorant that day, or even if I had bad breath that could detected from a distance of several feet.
Even as far back as high school, when BRF likely first surfaced, my BRF almost got me into a fight. Unless that was my TBF (True Bitch Face).
Thankfully, I was diagnosed by husband (thanks honey!) a few years ago with BRF. Since then, I try hard to smile pleasantly whenever I remember, and also when I’m not feeling bitchy.
This crazy 60-year-old lady with her ankle weights has gone viral. We’ve got guys dressing up as unicorns doing it and someone named Baby Sideburns “prancercising her camel toe off.” CNN picked it up, so did Jezebel, and it’s all over my Facebook.
Again, I love having complete weirdo friends.
