Eyebrows......they're overrated.

Well, I have decided that, much like hair, eyebrows are overrated. You all think you are something special for having them and always feel the need to show off in front of me with your neatly trimmed brows and long dark eyelashes. Grrrr. Newsflash! I can draw mine in any way I desire. Yep. I guess you all could too but given the choice, I don't think you would. Nope. I think you would pansy out.

The even better part is that I can draw them on in ways that reflect my mood for the day. Please, humor me in the following pictures to get a full understanding of what I mean.
This is the start picture. There is nothing unusual here. However, I am not perfect in drawing in everyday eyebrows so, often times, they are lopsided. Don't judge me.

This is me without any eyebrows.....well, I guess there are a little bit but nothing worth getting excited over.

This is the "don't mess with me" look. I use this one on my kids alot.

This one I call, "Surprise!"
ok. I

Then there is the "I haven't plucked my brows in over a century" look.

To the left is the addition of the "I haven't plucked my brows in over a century" look. This one I just forgot to take care of the unibrow.

Lastly, is the Countess look. I was going towards angry, but I just have to reiterate my lack of artistic skills here. If there ever is such a major as "Eyebrow Artistry for Dummies" I will be the first one enrolled.

My last chemo is this Friday. Yay me!

I will then start radiation in approximately 3 weeks.....I think.

The last pictures are just of me and my boy. He was wondering what I was up to with all my different eyebrows. I decided to include him in the fun.
Take note of his long dark off!

Thanks for humoring me in my ridiculous moments!

seriously cute lashes baby josh. Paige, i was laughing so hard at your post. You are so good humored about the whole thing. I love it. Hilarious. I actually really think you look beautiful bald....and even w/o the eyebrows. Serioulsy, it suits you.

Sona Peterson said...

They look almost as nice as the time that you tried to self wax your eyebrows and accidentally ripped the whole thing off! (Thanks for going first) I subsequently peed myself from laughter!

Christin said...

I was laughing my head off at those eyebrows. Mine are really bushy right now and I feel like shaving them off. Maybe I can join in the fun.

Paige you are definately your mother's daughter. You totally cracked me up.I have to agree you are beautiful bald and no eyebrows you can definately pull it off!I sort of know how it feels not to have eyebrows or at least 1/2 an eyebrow mine went away a while back,never to return.Go figure so I had them tatooed on which hurt like you know what, but at least I have a whole eyebrow now over each eye.Yours will eventually come back if not you're beautiful without them I just looked weird!Like I have said all along your one amazing young woman.I send my love and prayers to all of you!

You are too funny! My favorite was the countess. I think your next post should be pictures of onlookers after you go out in public with those brows!

We will be in St. George in 3 weeks running the marathon. Hope to see you then!

I just kept thinking about makeup class... I think I have a photo of you somewhere from the day we did the gender reversal makeup... the 2nd busy eyebrow pic made me think of that.
I hope you're doing well. You look good.

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hhhhhhhhhhhhh hahahahahahahaha!
You crack me up!
You were fun to live with, never a dull moment. I miss you ! I think this was the first time I laughed today.
I should tell you my funny story. I said Penis and Orgie DURING instruction on Greek Theater. We are going to study Oedipus Rex. So I was reading the notes out loud (because I didn't come early to read the lesson that my friend had prepared and so generously shared with me that day), and out it came, in the same sentence. 10th graders have a hard time holding it together when two words like that come out of a teachers mouth and then is embarrassed by what she just said!
It ended up being about the fertility festival where the Greeks would well... it was like modern day Mardigras, I imagine.
I put the Chandler (from friends) influx in my voice when I saw my friend at lunch, "did you READ it before you copy and pasted it into the notes for the power point?"
Wow, that was a long entry, sorry.

Dear Paige,

You don't know me, I'm Christin Olsen's cousin. I blog hopped from her blog. I just wanted to let you know that I have been lifted and inspired by your posts. Especially this one. I am wiping tears of laughter out of my eyes as I type. I hope you don't mind my snooping, that's the joy of blogs, rights?

I love your attitude. I try to have the same positive outlook on life, and I know how difficult it can be, so thank you so much for your efforts. I have rheumatoid arthritis, and it can get ugly sometimes, but I think humor, laughter, family and faith make all the difference. You're a beautiful, amazing woman. I hope this year is full of celebrations.
