SNAFU

SNAFU, Here is a crazy ass word for you. In short, 'I royally f***** up'.


Remember this?

I am not in a much better state at the moment. Both my eyebrows now look as if they are running scared from each other. 

I am in a 'Joey' moment and AM not liking it a bit. 
Call me a lazy bum....I deserve it, for not getting up and plucking my eyebrows under better light. 

I have scant hair in my eyebrows and so missing a few hair at odd spots really makes me look scary, maybe I will get a job to scare the pants off little pesky kids, bwahhhha

Or I can join celebs....no eyebrow thingy was quite hot last year and I can start a new trend all together.

I usually pluck errant hair around my eyebrows and chop off the too long ones to bring them into shape. It was easier and cheaper in India, where you just hop into a salon and get them threaded by a beautician.

Lancaster does not have any salons that provide this service and even if they did, I am too much of cheapskate to spend precious moolah on it. 

So, I did what I usually do...I sat in front of the television with my beauty kit and started weeding away. The light was insufficient, but I with the usual over-confidence marched on to beautify my cranium. I plucked a few from the left one and then moved to the right eyebrow and shaped it with a too much enthusiasm and forgot to check back the status of the left one and crapstatic....I look WEIRD!

The end result is I, now have one eyebrow which looks like a fat caterpillar and the other on starvation diet. 

Not the eyebrows.


Check on me in a decade or two, I am hiding behind a veil till they grow back.

Till then, enjoy this

BTW,u know,I once asked the barber,nee,hair stylist to 'streamline' my eyebrows..and,the guy cut a long thread,crossed it or something,went 'twang' at each eyebrow...Maybe he was just showing off..it just needs a good scissors to trim them,usually..haha.

The first time I got my eyebrows waxed (I was channeling Brooke Shields at the time), the lady at the salon used the wax on the top of my eyebrows (a no-no I did not yet know). I looked like a Klingon from Star Trek, The Next Generation, with a nasty red ridge on my forehead. The rest of the eyebrows looked damn good though!

Lazy Pineapple said...

Oh my...waxing eyebrows? must be so painful....
Klingon?? hehehe you should blog about it...
Threading also does that to you. if you have sensitive skin.

Good to see you here :)

AmitL said...

That's called threading? Well,that was the only time- from then on,I only sit with his assistant, and ask him to use the scissors to trim the eyebrows..:)

Lazy Pineapple said...

Yeah Amit, its called threading and I wonder how you did not jump and run off...threading pains like hell ouchhhh
