Wednesday Wonderings Vol. 4

Friends, it’s that time again.  Time to admit to the random wonderings that go through my mind from time to time.  I seriously question myself on even sharing these things with you, but we’re all friends here, right?  Ready?  Here we go!


Straw vs. No Straw


Here’s something I really want to find an answer to.  Which is better drinking from a straw or no straw?  On the one hand, if you drink without a straw your beverage can stain your teeth ~ thus aging you.  If you drink from a straw you run the risk of adding wrinkles around your mouth ~ thus aging you.  This seems like a no win situation.  So, which one is better?


The Oscars

Okay, the Oscars are on my mind.  No, I’m not talking about the snafu with the movie of the year.  There is something else on my mind.  This is the first time I can say that we saw all the movie of the year nominees BEFORE the awards.  Am I the only one who feels like the selection this year was lacking?  Don’t get me wrong, I thought some of those movies were good.  I enjoyed several of them.  Still, were they Oscar Movie of the Year?  I suggest that they were not.  I feel a little let down by the choices this year.  Or maybe I simply have it all wrong here.  What do you think?  Did you think those movies were Academy Award worthy?

Moreover, does anyone even care about these anymore?  Just wondering?


Real Tan, Sunless Tan, Tanning Bed?


white vs tan legs

It’s that time of year.  The weather is warming up and soon we will all be wearing shorter skirts or shorts ~ simply showing a bit more leg in general.  Can we all agree that we look better with a little color?  I’m not talking about that orangey look or that totally baked look like our tan fail friends here.   (Seriously, these make me laugh!  Did they not know they looked like this?)

Just a bit of color.  Doesn’t it just make us look a little healthier and maybe even a little thinner??  #hereshoping

So, what do you think is the best way to go about obtaining the color?  There are so many options.  I am still amazed that people still layout in the sun for hours on end or lay in a tanning bed.  I for one am afraid of skin cancer, premature aging, and sun spots.  Therefore, I am a fan of sunless tanners.  However, that can be a dangerous game.  Pick the wrong one and you end up looking like an Oompa Loompa.  If you go the route of spray tan you’re facing a somewhat expensive proposition.  On the other hand, maybe it’s worth it to ensure a good even coverage.

So, where do you stand on this issue?  Have you found an excellent sunless tanner?  Speaking on behalf of all the fair-skinned, sunburn only people, we need color too.  So, help a sista out and let me know.


Wet Dogs

And finally, as I am sitting here next to my dog…I wonder.  Why do wet dogs smell so bad?  I mean they’ve had a bath and are mostly clean at this point.  What is it that makes a wet dog smell so bad?  Inquiring minds want to know.


Well, there it is, the random things that occur to me.  Don’t forget to comment below friends and weigh in on these very important matters.
