I went over to Katie/Jenny/Lisa's last night to watch the American Idol results show and The Bachelor. My friends are TV enablers and I am now a Bachelor convert. I had never seen it before but they brought me up to speed pretty quickly. "That's Amber, she's a lush. Oooo Liz, she's cute!" and so on. Then came "That's Tina Fabulous (pictured). They call her that because she always looks perfect."
The ALP (Always Looks Perfect) Girl is intriguing to me. I feel like I have always known one, in high school, in my college sorority, even at work. Their hair always looks great, their clothes never look sloppy and they never seem to have breakouts or dark circles under their eyes. How do they achieve this? Genetic luck? Careful planning? Obsessive fixation with appearances? I've never been able to figure it out...
I overslept this morning and didn't have time to wash my hair. Then the cute peasant-style shirt I had planned to wear turned out to be too see-though for the office so in a last minute rush I threw on a stripy tee. Which I later spilled yogurt on. My make-up always disappears way before lunchtime. I need a manicure and a pedicure. I forgot to shave my left kneecap. And my denim skirt is demonically possessed, it keeps twisting around and I wind up with the backpockets on my side instead of my backside.
Mary Fabulous I am not.
