“I’m a whole lot hotter than I look.”

Published January 2, 2013 by Malia

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!
