For Christmas, I got the movie The Decoy Bride. Here’s the trailer, just to get you up to speed on what I’m talking about:
It’s a very predictable film, but incredibly sweet and funny, so it’s worth a watch. Plus, David Tennant is the love interest, so it’s hard not to enjoy it.
The reason I loved this film was because it felt very relateable, or rather Kelly MacDonald’s character was relateable. The first time I heard her line about “hotter than I look,” all I could think was “That’s exactly how I feel about myself.” When I’m not near a mirror, I tend to think of myself as a lot prettier and a lot slimmer. I also tend to think that I’m witty, clever, and generally delightful.
Today was a rare day when, once I got dressed and did my makeup and hair, I actually felt pretty. Not hot or anything like that, but definitely more attractive than usual. To that end, I decided to make today’s photo a first for me. I decided to take one of those infamous bathroom mirror shots. Although, I don’t think I did it right, because I wasn’t holding the camera when I took the picture. So, here’s the photo:
Now, I could’ve cropped the picture, but I thought the hair straightener sticking out into the photo was such a “classy” touch.
Hi, I’ve discovered your blog just recently, and absolutely have decided that I have become addicted! You are such a good writer, I am simply engrossed in seeing what you think of your world:) I applaud you for taking the time and going to the effort to put on make-up and do up your hair — you’re reminding me that I need to start back doing the same — like one of my male friends, back in vet school, Adrian Peterson, used to say, (and he had sickeningly great! hair:)! ” if you look good, you gonna BE good!!” so, there you go, you hotter-than-you-may-think- new friend:)! You are an inspiration!
