I think I hate this colour. What colour is that even? (Hi, mum, I’m just joking, thanks for the gift!)

    1. I came to like the colour too, after all, though my first impression was not very favourable. I colour-coordinated it with my pink bijou, pink blouse and pink tights and it worked ok πŸ˜‰ I was very pink indeed, but it wasn’t as awful as it sounds (hopefully).

        1. Oh no! That was before you made me giggle at the mere sight of something pink! The tights are still safely at the bottom of the drawer. Today I’m painting my nails red. Please don’t say anything funny about red!

          2. I hope your not still bracing as I had to go out and that would have been an awfully long time for you to brace

          3. Hihi, not really, I can keep on bracing myself for hours on end. That’s very much what I do because I know I’m a person who is easily scared. Such as by her own shadow. (I’m still bracing myself now.)

          5. I’m sorry to keep you anxious for so long, I was busy painting my nails red. I’m an anxious person, it’s hard not to be. But I’ll be trying, for your sake!

          6. Well at least if your painting your nails again you will have to do “nothing” for a few hours or does that make you anxious too?

          7. Quite the opposite, I was fiddling with my photos in photoshop while waiting for my nails to dry, and I was not only enjoying myself but also produced some (hopefully) nice pictures!

          9. Photo post-editing/photoshopping is easier than it looks! It’s just a question of test and trial. What do you use for editing your photos then? You must edit them somehow, right?

          31. Yep, I know, it depends! I would strongly discourage you from losing weight though, that would make you anxious and it’s not needed. As to you hair, I love the way it looks in your photo πŸ™‚

          36. Well I told him I got a free red handbag from a blogger who writes a blog called 11 inches and up . He got excited and I blushed. I explained it was about 11 inch heels not penises. Then I asked him what kind of men he must know to have well…..he said “I’m gay darling”

            So my question now to you is because maybe being clever you might be able to help is do most gay men have 11 inch penises?

            Like

          37. Ok, so I had to use a measurement converter to see how many centimetres 11 inches are and I was, uhm, surprised, to say the least. Are there 11-inch penises? And are there 11-inch heels? Either way, I’ve seen nothing like this yet… I have no clue what your hairdresser meant…. (But he sounds fun!)
