It's official... I have a moustache.

It's FRIDAY - woo! I'm in a rockin' good mood because tomorrow I get to see Amy, Christine, Leah, Bonnie, and all the other smiling and talented faces at my RWA chapter meeting.

In case you missed it, I've got a contest going (see sticky post above). It's called 'My Date with and Angel' and I bet you're wondering why...
The hero in Law of Averages is a British rock star who's been dubbed by the media, the 'Dark Angel of Rock'.
Ah... it's all making sense now, eh? Cause who wouldn't want to date a gorgeous hunky talented musician with an accent? YUM-MY.

I hope y'all will have some fun and enter. Please? Pretty please? Imagine a photo contest with NO entries? Yup, that would be rather devastating...
I'd have to blame Bonnie, who inspired this (unknowingly) with her recent entry into a contest for a trip to Iceland. After the horrific winter we had in Ontario, I'm not sure what possessed her to enter, except maybe the lure of an active volcano? ;)

Hey, remember awhile back I blogged about going for an eyebrow wax and the spa-demon aggressively hinted that I needed my upper-lip done as well (you can read about it HERE)-- and the devasting after effects it had on my psyche despite the reassurance from my peeps, my homies, my buds, that there was no evidence of such a beast on my lip??
Well it happended again!
Same story, different spa...
I went to have my unibrow divided (just kidding... my eyebrows aren't tooooo bad) and the spa-woman-child (she was an infant, really -- all of 22) said,
"And are we doing the upper lip today?"
"Um,... no?" says I.
"Oh." she says, with the same LOOK as the OTHER spa-demon.
"Okay... if you think I need it, go ahead."
AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!! F^*King HELL that hurts!

Writing progress - yeah... no. Wrote, deleted, wrote deleted, deleted, deleted. Monday I had 37,000 words and Friday I'm down to 35,200. Sven is hanging his head in shame.

Have a GREAT weekend everyone. Don't forget to grab a camera and an angel ;)


Kathleen Oxley said...

*snort* Poor thing! I hate waxing - I only get my eyebrows done like twice a year!

Have a great weekend!

Oh, and any idea where I might snag an angel to snap a photo with?

Wylie Kinson said...

Hi Kathleen - thanks for visiting! And yeah, waxing blows.
An angel?
Do you have a knick-knack angel to pose with or a garden gnome angel? Is there a statue of an angel in your community?
Do you live near a graveyard?
Can you stick a halo on your dog/cat/parrot?
Good luck!!

Kathleen Oxley said...

*blushing* When you said angel, I pictured a hot guy with wings. But, now that you've helped me get my mind out of the gutter, I think I can manage one of your suggestions.

Wylie Kinson said...

LOL Kathleen - but hey, if you can find a hot guy with wings, go for it!

The contest sounds cool -- do you allow Photoshopped entries, or would that be cheating? :)

Wylie Kinson said...

TL - well, my hubby is currently photoshopping a grill-marked angel on his beloved grilled cheese sandwich, so I'd have to say - GO FOR IT!!

Amy Ruttan said...

WAIT WHAT, it's tomorrow??? I thought it was next week.

Wylie Kinson said...

What?? NEXY WEEK????
Oh man,... I must have written in my diary on the wrong day.
Crap. Now I'm bummed out. :(

Amy Ruttan said...

Sorry for bumming you out. But I'm going away this weekend and was worried I was missing it too.

Anonymous said...

I was thinking hot guy too. I could do the knick knack angel much easier. First of all, I have to get my lip waxed;-) I had the exact same thing happen, but I really think they say that for the $$. They was insult you for $12 bucks.

That's will insult you, not was insult.

Leah Braemel said...

Phew! I had the same reaction as Amy. But it's weird because at about midnight last night I woke up in a panic thinking "OMG it's the TRW meeting tomorrow, how could I have forgotten?" Must have been something in the air. Or we're all desperate for our TRW fix ;)

Wylie Kinson said...

Leah - '...desperate for our TRW fix' EXACTLY! I don't know how I got the weeks confused considering I have to put the meeting date in the newsletter! D'oh

Bonnie Staring said...

OMG I'm so glad I looked through the comments before I completely freaked out about missing the TRW meeting.

Oh well, at least I burned off some calories with the panic attack. ;)
