On to this weekend’s questions!
________________________________________________________________________

What’s your favorite beauty tip?
Warm your eyelash curler for a few seconds with the hair dryer before using. The results are amazing!!!

How do you cope with stress?
Anyone who’s read my blog for very long knows that when I get stressed I want—no… NEED sex badly. It’s a ravenous craving that builds to be point where I can no longer think. So, because I still don’t have this job posting filled, I get myself off. Yes. At work. In my office. No one is the wiser, I promise. And then whew… I’m able to focus and deal with the insane pressures that sometimes accompany my job. You and I are the only ones who know the reason for my secret smile.

If you had to gain ten pounds what would you eat to gain the weight?
Shrimp and gouda cheese grits. Yep. I’m a good southern girl with a love of good
southern food.

If you were going to run away from your current life where would you go?
Somewhere by or on the sea. I have noticed an unintentional running theme of water and ocean imagery in my posts. This flows (forgive the pun) from my love of the sea’s majesty, beauty, peace and power. I’m at home by the water. I breathe. I feel free. So if I was running, which I sometimes long to do, I’d run to the water’s edge, feel the waves crashing around me, and dive in, reveling the salty buoyancy that carries my troubles away.

What the funniest penis name you’ve ever heard (not from a movie)?
Stanley. As in Stanley Power Drill. Yeah. I almost snorted vodka out my nose upon hearing that one. Can’t wait for more laughs!

  2. What’s your favorite beauty tip?
    .
    sleep – get enough of it… and being around good, people that make you laugh

    How do you cope with stress?
    .
    I try to calm down – not feed it. If I can’t do that – jog or skate to relieve tension AND work my muscles. You’d think I’d have the marathon runner’s body with the stress in my mind. but I do not. : )

    If you had to gain ten pounds what would you eat to gain the weight?
    .
    In-n-out fries, chocolate shakes, fried potatoes, eggs, sausage, pancakes!!!

    If you were going to run away from your current life where would you go?
    Don’t get me wrong here, I’ve thought about this foe a few seconds but I couldn’t do it. I feel the same about having a drink if I have a heavy problem on my mind – can’t do it. I think I can’t consider it because I wouldn’t be able to fully enjoy myself with big unresolved issues.

    What the funniest penis name you’ve ever heard (not from a movie)?
    .
    “Schlong” I lived with my cousin who is really funny and the first time I heard that, I thought he was making up a word. To me, the pronunciation alone produces this image of a goofy, stocky unattractive wrestler in one of those one piece bathing suit things ans an ugly wrestling helmet.

  3. What’s your favorite beauty tip?
    Cucumber on the tired eyes.

    How do you cope with stress?
    Break free, move away from the world that surrounds us.

    If you had to gain ten pounds what would you eat to gain the weight?
    Potatoes, Junk food and Pizza (Although I need to gain it desparately now ;) )

    If you were going to run away from your current life where would you go?
    Himalayas, the land of ultimate peace. Away from all the modern day life of inventions that never leave us away is away from us at one place still. The great Indian Himalayas.

    What the funniest penis name you’ve ever heard (not from a movie)?
    Big Ben. One of my ex was so in love to laugh over it all the time.

    ——————
    Have a great week ahead :)
    Cheers

  4. Beauty tip: Turn the blow dryer to cool to set your hair with extra volume once it’s done drying.
    Coping with stress: Drink. hahaha Or go for a long hike along the river.
    Getting fat: Mac n’ Cheese all day every day. If only my guts didn’t object. I’m sensitive.
    Penis name: I honestly can’t remember! I’m lame :)

  5. What’s your favorite beauty tip?
    At least 1 mile of bicycling or moderate hiking per week. One of the young secretaries at work commented on how toned my legs looked. It made me feel better than I’ve felt for a long time.

    How do you cope with stress?
    I drive, preferably with the top down and 80+mph wind blowing around me, but I’ve gone with the top up and speed limit winds on wet roads when I’ve needed it. I usually point the car to the nearest mountain.

    If you had to gain ten pounds what would you eat to gain the weight?
    Sushi. I’ve never really heard of anyone gaining weight on sushi so it would take alot of it.

    If you were going to run away from your current life where would you go?
    The mountains of course. Of course, I’ve had the occasional fantasy of leaving everything behind and finding an amish community that would accept me, but that would mean leaving my car behind and that isn’t happening.

    What the funniest penis name you’ve ever heard (not from a movie)?
    One-eyed unicorn

  6. Oh shit. And I’d run away to the pacific coast just north of San Fransico, Stinson Beach area. The rocks are deadly, the waters shark-infested, the air thick with eucalyptus and firs. It’s mind-numbingly beautiful and powerful.
