My New Look

I am annoyed today.

I am annoyed today because I am annoyed by three separate individuals.

And it isn't so much that they each, in their own special ways, did something that pissed me off today.

It's that, for three separate reasons, it is best that I hold my tongue and not rip any of these boneheads a new one.  This is annoying.  Annoyance is a part of daily life, but having to take the high ground and let three freakin' jerks get away with it seems a bit unfair, y'know?

And then ... when I went to the restroom to fix my lipstick for the evening, the lighting in there was really bad and I wasn't close enough to the mirror and I screwed up and drew the lip-liner too low, conveniently drawing a nice red line under my lower lip.  Sure, I did my best to blend it in with the lipstick, but the whole I-injected-fat-from-my-butt-into-my-lips look just isn't me.  So then, I try to wipe off the excess.  I grab the nearest wipey-offy item, which is a paper towel, and carefully try to wipe off the extra lip I've drawn in.  This is only partially successfully -- although I've wiped off some of the lipstick, I've managed to rub the rest of it into my skin, which is now a little red and puffy after its encounter with a rough paper towel.  I keep trying to fix it, but no matter what I do, I still give off the overall impression that I've just been feasting on the still-bloody flesh of my enemies.

And then I think, "Y'know, projecting that image isn't necessarily a bad thing right now."  Hell, if I can't get my revenge on people who piss me off, I might as well look like I do.

you do better than me; I have attempted lipstick wearing in the past, but it just does not do anything for me; perhaps I'm chosing the wrong colors or something.

You do have a way with words, Z Girl.
