Anyway....I did not tell you that she is having a contest which involves mini-skirts. Supposedly, women over a certain age...can still wear mini-skirts. I'm not sure I agree completely with that, but, I have seen some contestants who look pretty good. The prize for this contest is some fabulous wrinkle erasing cream. Quite pricey, I believe, out of my price range.
Well, let's get right down to it. Yes, I decided, against my better judgement, to try to win some make-up. Oh, the "lengths" I'll go for a prize!
After seeing my competition, I decided I would have to "take it up a notch". (haha get it??) Not my skirt, but the originality. I don't even own a mini-skirt, for Pete's sake. In fact, my "mini-skirt" is really a regular skirt hiked up to my armpits.
So, I enlisted the help of my amazing daughter, and we had a photo shoot.
Since Carol's book is entitled "Miniskirts and Laughter Lines", I decided to focus on the "Laughter Lines".
You'll have to go here to see the photos I submitted.
I believe I'm #18. Remember that number because I believe that you will have the awesome opportunity to vote for me on September 16! I feel like I'm on American Idol jumping up and down saying "pick me! pick me!", while holding up my fingers to make an 18. (No, I don't have 18 fingers, in case you're wondering.)
What you are about to see are some of the rejected photos.
So, here are here goes nothin' on an empty stomach...drum roll...turn away now, if you have eaten recently....(and, fyi, that bottle of wine I'm using is full and corked, and not empty. Pretty frightening, huh?)

OK. Enough of that ridiculousness. On to an attempt at classy, inspired by Judy Garland. I thought briefly, like a nanosecond, about showing a picture of Judy Garland, but, any comparison would just be, well, there would not be a comparison.
