Pin me up

Soooo, I've been thinking about how I look as of late.

The older I get, the worse it gets.

It's nature. Things lose their battle against gravity. The pounds start to pack on... I was thinking to myself, in 20 years I won't even recognize myself. My own mother tells me all the time. "I look in the mirror and think, 'who is that person?'"

So I have decided I need to get some pictures taken, to show my kids one day. "Look! Mommy used to be hot!" And the fact that since The Chief left, I have been feeling kind of down about myself. I think having some vain moments can help one's self esteem. Couldn't hurt, right?

I have found a photo studio that does the coolest pinup photography. I have always loved that look: beautiful, natural looking girls (ie no sticks) in provocative (ie not naked) outfits looking adorable, sexy and gorgeous. I want that for myself. I can look like Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca, wearing that fabulous form fitting suit or a polka dotted dress and wide brimmed hat like Norma Jean.

It's expensive, it makes me a little nervous, but I think it will be good for me. And when I'm all wrinkly and dried up, I can look at my picture and think, DAMN! I was a hot dish back in the day.

Then I can drive around my house in my Rascal screaming about pudding and waiting for my Social Security check to come it! Only kidding... we all know that people my age will NEVER see any Social Security money.

You have to meet Miss Katie Cowden and model for her next time you come to town.

She makes everyone looks totally gorgeous and brings out their personality. Her pin ups and still lifes are my faves.

Also, and this should go without saying, you are a knock out. You're an Amazon. You're built to an impossibly unattainable standard, like a real life Barbie, if Barbie was hot. I'd be jealous if I wasn't busy basking if your glow.

And to top it off, you're the coolest chick I know.
