Ok, I admit it - I love comedies on TV!!! I love Courtney Cox's new show "Cougar Town" and I enjoy watching "30 Rock". I love to laugh! It just makes me feel good. However lately those shows have been making me a TVChondriac- what is that you ask?? (well I confess I did make the term up) however I use it to describe: when you hear about something on tv, which makes you crazy or paranoid, that you could have that to??
Well after watching Cougar Town - which did I mention that I just love!! and think Courtney Cox is so cute! ok, now on with the blog... That after Courtney Cox's character is worried about wrinkly elbows - so am I now!!! After Courtney Cox's character is worried about dry, cracked heels and she runs out to get a pedi egg. I did to!!! After hearing about unwanted hair growth - I admit I am a little paranoid that I to could have those things! I whipped out the magnifying mirror - not a pretty site!
This week on 30 Rock, I learned a new term. I had heard of muffin top, but this show introduced me to the term "back loaf" - definition: the loaf of fat between an older woman's panty and bra - AHHHH!!!!!! That has sent me over the edge!!!!!
So now I am plucking hair, grating my heels, lotioning up my elbows, and sticking to my diet - I do not want anything on my body to be described as a bakery product.
So yes, this is enough to send a new 40 something over the cliff - however I like to think that the gentle humor over such things is a allot like the sexy girl in your circle of friends (come on we all have that one friend who is high maintenance!) - that shows up and gently reminds all the other ladies in the group that we need to take some time out and focus a little tender loving care on ourselves!!! I think that this concept could be filed under my theme word for the year "margins", then under the "margins" heading "time management" (or you to could be described as a bakery product -ahhh!!!) sorry I just can't get past this one!
