There's a Reason I Feel Justified in Criticizing Colin Farrell's Eyebrows

It's because I once had the same problem:

the eyebrows, ohmygoodness, WHY?

No one told me either. Poor Colin is probably walking around thinking his brows are just fine because no one will tell him, and how embarassing is that? Let me tell you: VERY embarassing. Especially when there's photographic evidence.

And boy is there some photographic evidence of my own brow problem, not to mention some hair and outfit problems. Check it out. I made you an album. You may now laugh about me behind my back as is appropriate and necessary.

Thanks to Mir, Holly, and Jenn for the inspiration to embarass myself in this way.

The rest of us noticed the cuteness transformation years ago. I'm glad that you are enjoying the new you.

Mir said...

It's so good to know I'm not alone. *sniffle* Hold me?

Anita, my question is why no one told me pre-transformation that a transformation might be a fine idea.

Holly, it's too bad you're so far away--I'd scan all your stuff for you.

Mir, you are certainly not alone. We must comfort each other. And in my world comfort=lots of baked goods. Brownie?

I'm 25% there with the eyebrows. I like em tweezed, but often am too lazy to keep up and am still passable, maybe because I'm lighter-haired.

But I had some of the WORST hairstyles in the history of hairstyles. I think I've burned those pictures.

I could scan some kid ones, though.

You know, Shiz, you're lucky that your hair and your eyebrows match, and that both are light. In my opinion, if what you do is passable, it's fine. I personally neglect many beautification-related tasks simply because it's not that noticeable, and if it's not, why bother? I have better things to be doing than, say, shaving my legs every day when they're covered by trousers most times anyway.

I bet if you asked around someone could find a terrible hairstyle photo for you. They can't ALL be destroyed. You should totally join in the humiliation. Er, I mean, fun.

(This comment would have been so much more entertaining if the strike tage were allowed. But alas, it is not. My HTML cannot be accepted. Too bad.)

I mean strike TAG, not tage.

Gosh, Mary, proofread much?

No offense, Mary, but when I reached the end of that slideshow and Flickr asked if I wanted to start again from the beginning I couldn't click "No" fast enough...

Actually a lot (or maybe I should say some) of those looks weren't so bad, and I don't think I knew that you graduated from MNU...

Anyway, better you than me posting these types of pictures. Mine could be used for all sorts of humiliating blackmail.

Todd, the point is to post them yourself so that you've humiliated yourself and no one else can do it. You know, like when Eminem does his rap battle in 8 Mile and says all the bad things the other guy could say about him so the guy has nothing left to say? It's like that. Kind of.
