BEAUTY AND THE SPANX
Okay, you really can't tell in these pics, but I've been taking myself in hand. Style, I want some style! I redid my hair so it's a little flippy on the ends, I've lost a little weight, I joined Missus Smarty Pants to find out what I looked good in. (Who knew that hips are best camouflaged by jackets that end at the TOP of the hip???)
Anyway, the big night is the award night. Me and Di are up for the Book of the Year in our categories. We, um, want to hide our bulges as best we can. Okay, I have bulges while Di doesn't but still. We went shopping the week before the conference and I excitedly told her about the Spanx someone on the blog told me about. We bought some even though THEY WERE SIXTY DOLLARS!
For sixty dollars, don't you think they would have made us look svelte and beautiful? Our first clue should have been getting into them. Di discreetly managed to get hers on with no problem while I huffed and puffed and perspired for fifteen minutes to get them up over my thighs. I got the thigh shaper ones and I should have known THAT was a lost cause.
Now for the BIG news of the night. Drum roll, please. MY DAUGHTER GOT ENGAGED ON AWARD NIGHT!!! Big ring and all. Hawaii, here we come!
Now down to business. What do you think of the cover of Anathema? What does it make you think it's about? When do you think it's set-historical or contemporary?
