Missed me, didn't cha?

Wow. Crazy to think how time flies. It's been over a year since I've posted and I partially blame that on my father. I get my stubborn-ness from him, or at least that's what my Mom says. A couple people have asked me to continue my ranting on here, but I've always come up with a lame excuse as to why I haven't. No longer will I resist though.

Today's topic of discussion/ random thought of the day, comes from my co-workers. Most co-workers like to discuss their families, recent hollywood star gossip, or lately "the royal wedding", but MY lovely co-workers and I decided to discuss the topic of eyebrows.

Yes, eyebrows.

They are one of those things that you never really think that much about really. But why do we even have them? If we have hair all over our bodies, mainly for the purpose of keeping out germs and dirt, then why do we have wierd long hair right above our eyes? Mel (my coworker) seems to think that back in cave man days, people would grow their eyebrows out realllllly long so that they had a sort of cousin IT hair do rockin' and it would protect their eyes from the massive amounts of dirt flying around them. Who knows.

People do wierd things with their eyebrows. Back in the day, I used to pluck my eyebrows as a hobby, and as a result really only had about two hairs on each side above my eye. I looked georgous, let me tell you. (See picture, yikes!). Please don't mind the fact that I also am about 900 pounds heavier and failed in my attempt to cut my hair like Reese Witherspoon in "Sweet Home Alabama". Didn't work.

Some people pluck, some people wax, some people shave their eyebrows and tattoo on top of their eyes what they want their eyebrows to look like. There are unibrows, catepillar eyebrows, skinny eyebrows, thick eyebrows, eyebrows that dont match your hair color, I mean the list goes on and on.

The moral of the story, is this isn't one. Just random thoughts around the watercooler.

Off to go pluck my eyebrows...
