channelling my inner Joan
This photo contrasts somewhat with the secret film clip I have just found on my camera. The (never to be seen again) film clip features yours truly in mid-chat with J about a 'stropping' incident. I got a bit of a shock, particularly as I was scrolling through the rest of the snaps and found this blast from the past.
I don't mind not looking the same - I mind looking worse.
I hardly slept last night and I know it shows as I went to a meeting this morning and several of my colleagues asked after my health. I must look rough and I know that sleeping for less than 3 hours can make a person feel a little below-par but I think it might be time for 2010's projectforty overhaul. 'Never give up' - that's my theory and I'm sticking with it!
So...inspired by 'Mad Men's Joan, it's time to do a bit of projectforty surface improvement. I've spent quite a few hours over the last week or so watching Series 1 & 2 of that marvellous series, trying to catch up before tonight's Series 3. I love the series and the writing and the sets but most of all I am obsessed with the clothes and the hair of the female characters, particularly those of St. Joan. No amount of self-induced improvement is ever going to get me to that level of womanliness but there must be things a girl can do to find a little bit of glamour between the school drop-off and the interminable sock sorting?
I have a haircut on Tuesday and need eyebrow attention. The problem is that the lady who usually does them is not around and I want them to be shaped not plucked into slightly bendy millipedes. An untested plucker could just make things worse...much worse.
No matter - I can feel better bras, some new shoes and a renewed in my cuticular wellbeing coming on. Next...the wiggle and a search for the perfect martini....
