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.

How to Charm the Momma... or NOT

After literally tens of minutes of meticulously sectioning, strategically clipping, and severely manhandling my hair just as the stylists in the Glamour article suggest; after several more minutes of attempting to wield a curly brush in one hand, a hot-as-freaking-fire blow dryer in the other, while spinning to untangle myself from the stupid twisty cord which keeps mysteriously wrapping itself around my waist; after yet more minutes of painfully straining my whiplashed neck beyond sensible, nay, beyond advisable limits with the hope of glimpsing at least a teensy section of the back of my head in the much-too-small bathroom mirror; and immediately after I finish smoothing several different types of anti-frizz cremes and serums onto my perfectly coiffed head, yes, right at the exact moment when I emerge triumphantly from the bathroom sweating like a mofo (but a mofo with perfectly blown out hair!) just walk right up to me and say, "Wow!... Um, Mom? Why is your hair so poofy?"

blow out

(::bitter tangent::) Don't get used to it. It's pouring outside. Good LORD, it never fails, I kid you not! Rain not in the forecast? No problem! Wishing for a little moisture, you know, for the lawn and the plants or whatnot? Have I got a deal for you! Forget the whole Wash Your Car trick. No need for a ceremonial rain dance. Just ask me to blow out my hair! GOSH. That's, like, TENS of minutes I'll never get back! For reals, y'all. For friggin' reals. (::end bitter tangent::)

Oh, they do know how to burst that bubble, don't they?

(Ahem. Pictures of the perfectly coiffed head would be in order here, I believe?)

I love how you think, Ladybug! Capture it before the rain sucks the straight right outta there!

Man. Stupid rain.

NEVAH!

(Does anyone else have to do the stupid word verification, like, three or four times before finally getting it right?! It's the crazy fonts! I swear! Anyone? No? Just me then? Well damn it.)

Hey Cat, I just found out that Veronica Mars is starting on Tuesday at 7:30pm. I can't wait to see it. They describe it as The OC meets Twin Peaks...

Oooooh! Lucky you! Season 1 or 2? To tell you the truth I liked the show from the beginning, but didn't get FULLY addicted until about episode 10 of Season 1, just so you know. So power through! And this season? WOW. It just keeps getting better and better and better and better...

Oooh, LOVELY! (I know, I'm very late commenting on the pic. A little swamped at work.) I hope the rain didn't destroy it TOO much.

(Psst. I've had trouble with the crazy word verification fonts, too.)

And you never got back to me about those long flowered socks.

This is precisely why I rarely bother to do my hair.

You go with your straight self!

I think it's the first, it's never been on here before so I assume it is.

I forgot to mention how cute you look in the photo last time. So yeah, you look cute!
