Tidbit Monday: A Potpourri post - make up, more stripping and rock bands

My mind is kind of scattered today as I continue working to establish a wireless network with my Apple Airport Express at home. It's supposed to be easy to connect, but it's apparently not easy enough for me because I can't get it to work. Grr!

Anyhow, enjoy today's random sampling.

Make-up Brushes - Help!
Apparently my eyebrows are like a rain forest, as I have managed to break my fourth Sephora make-up brush since December. How? I have no idea. For $5, I wasn't expecting greatness, but somehow breaking four in less than six months seems a little crazy. No, I'm not brushing my eyebrows aggressively, but for some reason the top of the brush keeps snapping off like a twig. And those little bristles scatter like leaves, making them horrible to find and pick up.

I cannot bring myself to go back to Sephora and buy another one (mostly because I know it won't last) so if you all have recommendations of good, affordable eyebrow brushes and shapers, I would appreciate it. My eyebrows would too.

Meet my rock band
Because of my awful, tone-deaf voice, I will not be joining a band in the foreseeable future. But I was playing around online the other day and found a fun Web site that will let me generate my own band name based on my real name.

The Grammy for Best New Artist is definitely not in my future, but in my head, I can play Guitar Hero and Rock Band now with a purpose. So I proudly introduce to you all my band.....

Your Band Name is:
The Plastic Housewives

I think that's pretty appropriate. Let's rock!

Strip club follow-up
Sadly no pictures are available just yet, but Meg did ask for the story behind the "I don't want to burn you" comment so I have provided it below.

At the strip club (which gave us a front-row seat near a pole- score!), one of the other bachelorettes there was insanely drunk and smoking like a chimney. When "Hot Joe" (the best stripper) came over to her to make some money, he proceeded to straddle her and pull her on top of him.

Because of her level of intoxication, the cigarette went with the woman onto the stripper and she screamed out "I don't want to burn you" (with the cigarette) while he removed $1 bills from her cleavage and bra strap.

That was nice of her to try and save the stripper from a cigarette burn on his perfectly-toned pectoral. But I doubt that would have been the first time something like that happened.

Greek gods/ dreamy boy toys, wildy intoxicated women, reckless abandonment, that I understand, but smoking now thats disgusting.

For brushes I use Sonia Kashuk from Target. I've had mine for over four years, so yeah, they're pretty good. :)

I generated my band name-- "The Republican Elves". Now, maybe if it said "The Democratic Elves"....

My Guitar Hero bands have been called "Half Eaten Roses", "The Fake Ideas", and "The Whippersnappers".

Most of the brushes I have are from MAC. I've been told by various makeup artists that I've worked with - that they last FOREVER (granted you clean 'em of course!) However, the brow brush I have is from Sonia Kashuk from Target. To be honest it's a bit...hard/stiff - but it gets the job done (or maybe an eyebrow brush is SUPPOSED to be hard/stiff?!?) Apparently, the gold standard in brushes is Shu Uemura - ooooh and i just checked and the natural brow brush is $10!

I was going to suggest the sonia kashuk one too!

Eyebrow brush, hmm? I have a super cheapy one from Ulta that's been around for at least three years now that works just fine.

Maybe check out the Ulta at Damen/Clybourne-ish?

Wow - my imagination was running rampant with thoughts of fire jugglers and lots of naked men. Still a good story though - I don't that I would have been so concerned...

My band is The Bionic Puppets. Very appropriate for a preschool teacher!

I think that it's much harder to be a male stripper then a female one. When I had my bachelorette party we had a stripper. The poor guy had to perform while we screamed like crazy ladies and fell off our chairs laughing at our girlfriends' awkward faces whenever he danced on them. Craziness!

I have just downloaded iStripper, and now I can watch the sexiest virtual strippers on my desktop.
