Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Oh, the things you can do...

With a little bit of thread!

I just had my eyebrows "threaded"! No, seriously! Heard of it? Being a total eyebrow-shaping virgin, I carefully and thoughtfully considered having them shaped via The Wax, but after hearing Kalki's hair-raising eyebrow waxing experience (get it?! do you?! "hair-raising"?! heh heh!! get it?! hee!!), well, let's just say that me waxing ANYTHING any time soon is not freaking likely!

Yowch, y'all.

But, wow! My eyebrows are all shapey now! SHAPEY! No tweezers, no wax! Just thread! Twisty, hair-pulling thread. Rad, y'all. Totally.

Coolness unto me and my deflowered eyebrows!

Gosh! I tell you, Work at Home day rocks. Because of course, I am totally working. Um, right now. Because I always work on my WAH day. Because that's what I'm supposed to do. You know, work. While at home. So I totally do. I mean, why wouldn't I? Huh?! Why would anyone think I'm NOT working?! Just because I had time to get shapey eyebrows and do some Tae Bo and go out for donuts doesn't mean I'm not working, okay?! I have my computer on and files opened up and everything! I DO! I swear! I pinky promise!

Okay. Just thought I'd share.

i've been thinking about threading for a while now - just haven't made the leap from waxing :) did it hurt?

OK. I live under a rock. I had to Google threading to find out what it was. Interesting. I love how my brows look after I've had them waxed. I bet yours look GREAT.

After us PEBBLES met, I never blogged that eyebrow story because I actually already had, much earlier and embedded in another post. But I offer the (wrapped) link as a caution to others:

And no, I am not just pimping my blog. (No more than you are actually getting work done on your WAH day, anyway. Heh.)

Me again (sorry). It's a long post - the eyebrow fiasco is in the 3rd paragraph.

Hail to Cat's threaded eyebrows. (Hey, you should be a top Google result for awesome threaded eyebrows like I am for the haircut thing.)

Threaded eyebrows... I've never heard of that. Sounds painful...

God I got my eyebrows threaded years ago and I cried like a baby. I only wax now :)

Okay. "Yowch, y'all" may- perhaps- have been a moderate descriptor for my pain level during this procedure. I can think of several other descriptors, all of which contain loads of profane references, all of which I was muttering under my breath as I reigned in my desire to bitch-slap the girl ripping my eyebrow hairs out several at a time with her neat... little... twisty... thread!

But still. SHAPEY!

Um....I forgot my proper punctuations! ahem, ahem....
I wax, and my eyebrows are very shapey indeed. It only hurts for a sec!

Okay, she was probably just trying to scare me, me gettin' into old-fart territory and all (birthday! July 27th! mark your calendars!), but my stylist assured me that waxing causes-- wait for it-- WRINKLES. Around your eyes! GOSH! So of course I'm all, "Thread 'em! Thread 'em! No wax for me! NO WAX FOR ME!"

Plus, I hear wax REALLY hurts. Then again, the threading was no trip to the park, you know what I'm sayin'?
