Just remember, I am a magician cosmetologist, I can do great feats of magic and perform miracles;
turning the lowliest of them into beauties (self included)  ;)


You mean this isn't you?


I have a weakness for redheads.

    Okay, your weakness can still stand.  I have to admit, as I was looking for an avitar; when I saw this picture it sure looks like me so I had to use it!
    I wear my hair like this a lot of the time and it is curly like this too.  Only difference, I have highlights in my hair - and I never earned the uniform.
    And, my eyes are blue  ;) But, in this picture it looks airbrushed.
    That which does not destroy me-has made a fatal tactical error!   You keep campaigning for a azz whoopin', you gonna get elected.  
    It is not enough that I succeed. All who oppose me must fail.         You're never too old if you can still cock your pistol.

    Too Funny!  But Like I said, I am a magician, just picture it after a shower and all the makeup is gone!  Yikes!  ;D

    42 this past October.

    I always heard, you aren't old until you have to stop and do the math.  I just caught myself doing the math.  Guess I'm old.  ;D

    Hi Pencepon,
    Actually, I already have a twin but triplets would be fine. Nice to hear from a fellow Leo.

    I'm a Mac fan and am 69.  I love technology.  My dad who was born in 1900 always said he'd lived in the most exciting period of history.  i wonder what he'd say if he were still alive!

    I'm 46 - just old enough to qualify as a boomer. I too remember watching Apollo 11 on our black and white TV, and being fascinated by it.

    I had no contact with computers until after I'd finished my first year of university. I was pursuing science and journalism. Then my Dad bought a TRS-80, and I discovered the joy and creativity of programming. Switched to computer science and am very glad I did. I have always appreciated my Dad's curiosity. The fact that he was an early adopter with the TRS-80 enabled me to find a career that I'm passionate about.

    I woke my 5 year old daughter up to watch Armstrongs first step onto the moon during Apollo 11.  She watched for a short time, looked up at me and said: Daddy, Ive seen this. Can I go back to bed now please?

    I recently celebrated the umpteenth anniversary of my 29th birthday.

    Okay, I'll spit it out: 40. I was born in '68, which used to be a cool year to be born in, but now it just makes me sound...old.  ;D

    If it makes you feel better, paisley, I wish I were 40 again. Not that I am much older than that but things just seem to be falling apart. When did I start reading like an old person. (arms extended, page at an angle to catch the light) Guess I need to call the optometrist.

    Well, if it makes you feel better in turn, I was wearing bifocals in fourth grade. LOL Thanks for the kind words. My kids keep reminding me of how old I am. I can remember when my Dad turned 50 and I kept referring to him as "half a century old," so I'm just getting my paybacks now. LOL
