Dear Cryptic Kate,

As luck would have it we will be leaving P-town November 23rd. So instead of looking for a job, I am packing. The funny thing is that the first (actually 2nd, but first to make it to escrow) person with intentions of buying our house works for the smaller software company that was swallowed up by the biggest software company in the world. He said they still have a small portion of the building that carries the old name.

Julie, you are obviously younger (like our Kate) and eager to work at something that you find fulfilling. Good for you. We'll look forward to hearing updates!
Bare, When I was in college I was ALWAYS the oldest person in my classes. Thankfully, the kids were nice to me (I tell my son if there are ever any old people in his classes to be welcoming to them because it can be akward). My ticket into the "Land of OZ," as JeanneBeannie calls it, is my dear husband. Yes, I married an old fart, lucky me. I am a little on the younger side when it comes to TV and I'm really looking forward to being on this side for at least a few years.

Default Looking for someone with a sewing machine!

I recently bought a bathing suit with a plunging V. I really think the V is a little too plunging for my taste! If someone has a sewing machine I would gladly pay to have and inch or two zipped up in the front, or I could do it myself. It is a very small quick job. I could do the old fashioned thing and use a safety pin but what if it popped open? Ouchh!!!

Thankyou in advance.

Nonie....How about cutting very tiny slits on either side of the area you want to close and take a ribbon or shoe lace and lace it up fairly tight so that the two sides close, and take the excess shoelace or ribbon at the top and tie a bow with a double knot so as it doesn't untie when you swim. Like you would lace a sneaker from the bottom to the top I think it would look pretty. If the material is silky slippery you could put a velcro facing inside the fabric to reinforce the lace holes and also keep the material in tact better.

Nonie, I have the name of a seamstress in the Village of Tall Trees. If you don't use Barb's solution, which sounds cute.

Or you could just let it all hang out. The plunging neckline will take the attention away from other body parts that may not be quite as delectable! Just kidding ... I get to say things like that because Nonie and I are BFFs.

Lynne, I have the eyebrow problem too... not blonde... but not many eyebrow hairs left! I think I plucked too many as a teenager! I dread the horror of being without my eyebrow pencil!!

Another subject...
Anyone know anything about the berry from the Amazon Rainforest called Acai and capsules of this you can take? Evidently Rachel Ray had a doctor on bragging that it gives you energy and lowers the appetite... helping in weight loss.
Anybody?

Tons of information on the net about the new fad "Acai". Sadly, there is no magic potion. If there were, I'd be taking it, and I'd be a size 4!

The first time I heard about knit denim jeans, I thought, "Well, that sounds just plain ugggg-leeeee. Knit denim????"

But a couple of weeks ago, I allowed my favorite salesperson at Coldwater Creek to foist a pair of these weird sounding jeans upon me, even though I was quite sure they would look like flannel pajamas or sweatpants and nothing like jeans.

Well, guess what. I think they look exactly like jeans. But that's not the best part. The best part is that they feel soft and wonderful and move with you from the very first day. You don't have to go through about a dozen washings to get that effect.

The pair I have is boot-cut. Mostly cotton with just enough spandex. I wore these things all day today, and my behind is not saggy. Even after all these hours. Still not saggy. (Well, actually, it is the jeans' behind that is not saggy.) And as far as I'm concerned, that's the real test of a pair of jeans. Just enough spandex but not so much that they get saggy in the behind.

I don't know if you wear jeans in Florida very often. But if you do or if you are not in Florida, you might want to check out some knit denim jeans from Coldwater Creek. You might like them, too.

Hiya Gals....long time no chat....missed our Girl Talk.

Thanks Boomer for the tip, I will definitely check them out. I am always looking for comfy clothes to wear. I cant bear to wear those tight fittin jeans anymore.

Nonie...I agree with the gals "let it all hang out" (sorry Bernie lol).

Jeanne

I am very interested in hearing more from peeps who have used permanent makeup. I see ads all the time in the Daily Sun. It appeals to my lazy side. Any recommendations? But is it like getting your eye lids or brows tattoed? Ouch, that sounds painful. Also I'd hate to risk an eye infection.

I've been back in the Bubble now for ten days and the time is flying by. I seem to rush from dog park to pool to mahjongg to dinner or a movie, always rushing around to have more fun and see more people. I want to take golf lessons. Sometimes I just really want to stay home and relax. But I hate to waste any of my 182 days here in TV! I guess this is a nice problem to have.

I finally saw the movie Julia and Julie last night and even Fireboy enjoyed it. Makes me really feel that perhaps I should hook up my stove. No, on second thought, it is way too hot!

Barefoot,

Permanent make up is available at The Village Salon & Spa on 441/27. It is my understanding that only trained/certified and state licensed Esty are allowed to perform this service. I know she does brows, eyeliner, and lips. Ask for a consultation, meet other ladies in the salon who use this service, and go for it! btw...IMHO, a flu shot hurts more than this will!

Default Didn't work for me....

I had my eyelids done at a spa and there were no injections, merely brushing on something that was supposed to permanently darken and lengthen the lashes and lids. My concern was the ingredients used and they confirmed it to be a harmless vegetable oil base.

Well, it didn't take for me and it was so long ago, I gather they've improved the procedure by now and have lost interest in the costly shortcut. Don't even recall how much it cost way back then, but I surely didn't get my money's worth nor were they offering any refund.

As I recall, the place was a Merle Norman-type cosmetic spa.

Default Permanant makeup

I have not used it but I have read...can't remember where... so maybe a medical journal...or could have been Ladies Home Journal that it is not a good idea. The reason they sited is that as we age things begin to move...so the look changes and eyebrows etc may end up not looking so great due to sagging. Well like I said not sure of my source. Just another thought on the topic. Will be interested to hear others responses.
