Yesterday ...

I had nothing to talk about, today I have too much.

First of all, I fell in the parking garage leaving work yesterday. My knees are banged up- one more than the other. Getting old sucks ... I fell HARD on my knees and I'm hoping one day they will be back to normal. Today I feel like I was hit by a truck.

Second of all, I placed an order with Sephora a week or so back because they were offering Free Bare Minerals makeup samples with an order. I had been wanting to try the Bare Minerals and have been using the cheap Maybelline stuff which I DO like. Um wow- Bare Minerals is absolute swill. They charge $60 for a kit of that stuff and I can get my cheap stuff for $5-7 and NOT look like I'm about to vomit at any minute. The Bare Minerals puts a very weird sheen on your face and to me, you look sort of green and sweaty. I don't know if that's the new look the cosmetics industry is going for, but if so, then I will just have to be uncool and try to look healthy. WOW.

Third of all- we watched Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin last night give her speech. I was pretty impressed. She's fiesty as all get out ... and she did throw some pretty low blows to Obama. I'm not a fan of low blows coming from ANYONE. I don't think they have a place in adult society ... but she's a real smart-aleck and I do like that. Conrad likes her because she can skin a moose and is a member of the NRA (as is Conrad) .... I'm not going to go so far as to say Conrad doesn't care about issues like abortion and health care and the war. He's never said a cross word about Obama or McCain ... BUT the issue most near and dear to his heart is the Second Amendment ... for all you LSU and OU grads - that's the right to bear arms... in case they didn't teach you that. :) So, without preamble, McCain gets his vote. PERIOD. There ARE no other issues, according to Conrad.

The conversation in our house, while watching Sarah, when I looked over and discovered my dear Conrad with eyes glazed over and an expression of rapture on his face ... went like this.

Karyn: Why are you looking at Sarah Palin like that?
Conrad: Huh?
Karyn: Do you loooooooooooooove her?
Conrad: No
Karyn: Right
Conrad: Ok - in God's way
Karyn: Here you go with 'God's way' again
Conrad: Ok, in the NRA's way

Classic Southern (i.e. Texas) Republican

One more reason to LOVE Conrad Hopkins!!

To tell the truth... I was a little glassy eyed over Sarah Palin, too. She's definitely my kind of woman!

She is certainly feisty. I was just reading an article on Yahoo that was fact-checking her speech, though, and there were a lot of discrepancies between what she said and what's actually true. You can read it here:
