Cherry Pie

So, one month from today is my birthday and two weeks from today I leave for a rip roaring Def Leppard concert in Michigan..

Don't be jealous, and don't be haters...

Hubs and I went to a Chinese buffet in a neighboring city for our nice anniversary dinner..

I know, I know, it doesn't get much freaking better then a good Chinese buffet to celebrate your wedding anniversary..

blah blah..

I'm gonna have the GI trots soon, cause that's how my intestines roll bitches..

~

So I made a decision of some sort, now this decision may be about as worthy as a dirty sack of diapers, but I have enrolled in a local beauty college. I did this back in 1994 and did it a very very short period of time.

I gave it much thought and after years of doing other things like sitting on my ass and chasing kids, writing professionally, being a concert groupie,working with the convicts, and then working with the crazies, I thought it was best to find something stable..

So, starting April 21st, I'm gonna be doing this..

I'm going to be a make up artist and hair designer...

again, don't be a hater..

I might be making a total mistake, but most dumb people are blissfully unaware of how dumb they really are..

~
Its pretty sad when i can relate nearly every day of my life with either a Simpson's episode or a Spongebob one..

This means I have sunk to the bottom of the white trash barrel.

Or else means I watch way too much television.

In the end, does it matter?

I think not.

metalmom said...

Happy Anniversary!

When you finish school, will you tease your hair a mile high? Will your nails be bright red and six inches long? Hmmm....I have a picture in my head of Peggy Bundy singing Def Leppard while she snips away!

Don't mind me....I'm just jealous cuz you're doing something like getting away from the house!

Flip Flop Momma said...

Metalmom,
No, I am more the type to cut it short and dye it green..

last time I went I came home weekly with my hair a differnt shade and cut..haha

wanna come with me?..come on, we would kickass..

IamDerby said...

Hey if I went back to school I could totally see doing hair... sounds like fun to me. (But then what do I know ... I choose to spend my day trapped in a room with dozens of children)

Dame Wonder said...

good for you, hon! you should only work at what you love. good luck. and yes, i'm jealous of your all your up-coming road trips. have fun! you deserve it!

Tom said...

Man, I wish Continental gave us buddy passes...I'd have 2 out to you...Have fun at the show! Maybe they'll stop in Montreal just up the road...

Shannon said...

I think you will be a great make-up artist and hairdresser. You will have all of those kids laughing their a$$e$ off during the classes with your stories.

Flip Flop Momma said...

IamDerby,
yes, I have chosen to spend my days trapped with one child. and thats bad enough..

Dame,
come on a road trip w/me, then u wont be jelous no more..and I can teach u the fine art of rocking out.

Tom,
u wanna rock out to Lepps?..no way..

Shannon,
hoping there is at least one old lady there like me there..

haha

Tom said...

Well, they come to Ottawa and just before that in Quebec city...The way the dollar is now...it'd be pretty expensive to go!

Flip Flop Momma said...

Tom,
yeah, I know the whole tour scedule..haha

They are adding a third leg soon, with more US dates, so I will be going to at LEAST 2 more shows..well if they are within driving shot anyway..

My tickets are 175 a piece, but I buy first class tickets and thru the fanclub, which I normally get in the first 7 rows..

a regular priced ticket starts around 50 I think...but in candna that would equal about 90..haha

just_tammy said...

So you really are headed back to beauty school...I wasn't sure if it was an April Fools joke or not...

Off on another stalking mission soon...lucky you!

Flip Flop Momma said...

Tam,
silly I wouldnt post an April FOols joke on April 2..haha

CMB said...

Hey, at least you got out to celebrate! Congrats on your beauty school decision. I went after highschool and came away with my manicuring license. Not doing anything with it now, but it's nice to know I could. Good luck!

just_tammy said...

You know it was still the 1st when you posted! Of course it was the 2nd some where in the world just not here. And my family gives me grief for keeping the clocks ahead 5 minutes...

As soon as you brush up on your skills, let me know cause I need someone to fix the mess the last chick made.

Yippeeskip said...

Happy Anniversary and I'll come get my hair died by you one of these days

themuttprincess said...

WOO HOO! I don't hate you. Yet.

Once you have the power in your hands to make people look beautiful (or ugly if they are mean), then I will be a hater!

Patti said...

I say do what makes you happy. Doing make-up and hair is better than working at Mickey D's! You'll be GREAT at whatever you do. Trust.

Flip Flop Momma said...

CMB,
yeah i went a year after high school, did it for a while, then quit....this bitch needs 2 do something;)

Tammy,

Yippie,

Patti,

:)

Doozie said...

I believe you can do it. I contemplated that very thing briefly.

When you went to the chinese buffet, did you sit down at a table and ask for a menu?

Foster Communications said...

Your birthday is going to rock!

Maybe in beauty school you can learn to put some mad Def Leppard stripes in your hair. :)

Jamie Dawn said...

Yer gonna be in the beautification business.
Yeee Haw!!

Don't be jealous of me now, cuz my family and I are leaving tomorrow for GA. I will be going to Paula Deen's Lady & Sons restaurant and chowing down on some fattening country cooking. I will be sipping sweet tea and mint juleps in the deep south.
Oh, yeah!!! We'll be back home next Wed.
I'll have a computer, and try and stop in this weekend if the hotel wireless internet is working properly.
It BETTER be working properly or Lambchop will be a no show at Blog Church and I will have to skin his hide!
Have fun with beauty school. It sounds like something you'll really enjoy.

Chelle B. said...

Does Def Lepard still have their one armed drummer, I wonder? They rocked!

I went to beauty school and became an esthetician, it can be a great career. :)

Southern Sage said...
