Infomercials, a Love Hate Relationship

Top 5 Infomercial Wants
(at the moment anyway)... in no particular order.

1. ShamWow - I wonder if the Olympic pool people really do use it. Michael Phelps could be the next spokesman...
2. Snatch It - I'm 99.9% sure this does not exist in real life, but if it did... I'd buy it and surly be 100 pounds heavier.
3. Hawaii Chair - I think this is real, only because ellen got one and tried it out on her show. I only want one so I can use it to stand on when I reach for that unreachable item on the top shelf.
4. Pasta N' More - I want this because I hate watching water.... waiting for it to boil. Too hard. And I really long for color coded knives.
5. Push Up Pro - I want this because, well it looks like it makes the push up actually possible and a little less uncomfortable. Though I'm sure its only makes the whole process harder... but I still want it. Kind of reminds me of the Ab Roller.

#1 Top Infomercial Hate
Peticure - I'm beyond sick of the constant airing of this commercial I'm sick of the quick!

I got my hair done with the intention of going back to my natural color(dark blonde). While this is a little darker than that, I like it, and expect it to fade in a few weeks. Color doesn't hold well in my hair...
Well anyway, meet the new me.

Funny Metaphors

The ballerina rose gracefully en Pointe and extended one slender leg behind her, like a dog at a fire hydrant.

Oh Gosh. These made me laugh pretty hard.

Figuring out GIMP.

So my sister never sent me Photoshop like she promised... so I've been working on figuring out GIMP... The first one is supposed to look like I am popping out of a picture - basically giving it some sort of 3Dness. The second one is a globe/planet attempt. I only used one picture rather than taking a bunch of pictures around me... because I can't figure out how to merge the photos to make one long one :-/ each picture to see a larger version.


First Globe Attempt.

SO I need some more practice but am bored with the photos I have, so if you want me to butcher one of your photos... send it my way. ...
