What is it with these disgusting, unnatural looking lips that some folks think make them look sexy?
As a gay man, who's major concern in life is looking good, I have no problem with folks that have work done to hide wrinkles, or remove body blemishes. I plan on doing it some day. But how can folks like Lisa (above) or Joan Rivers think that their freakish looks, caused by plastic surgery, are anything less than hideous?
I'm in favor of having an approval board that will evaluate whether a person can have a cosmetic surgical procedure done before they're allowed to get it. I'd be glad to volunteer my time on such a board.
In my last post, I forgot to mention that I had completed some more of the sleeve on the wool/hemp sweater.
With all the work I've been doing on crappy scarves, it's no surprise that I forgot to mention the work on the sweater. I'll be able to pick this back up over the upcoming weekend. Hopefully, I'll be able to finish it soon, so I can mark this off my list.
Regarding my review of Cast-On Magazine, Tapetum mentions, "I found three designs that were not completely awful." and then ponders, "Though I am curious if your two are part of my three."
One of mine was a child's cable/Aran sweater that I thought was too ordinary to mention and the other was a simple women's garment with a yarn that had gold sparkles in it (if I remember correctly). Neither of them remarkable in any way.
Marilyn offers, "If you want to read interesting history books, read Stephen Ambrose."
Honestly, I've never been a big fan of reading history, but it's good to know that if I have an urge, that a like-minded reader has given me an option. Thanks.
