Everyone Has Their Crosses to Bear

I left my purse at a friend's house yesterday. It's really messed up my day, not having it by my side. No so much because I have no money, no credit cards, no ID, no phone, and no car keys, although, of course, not having those things is a slight inconvenience. More so because my New Favorite Lip Gloss is in there and I am GOING CRAZY WITHOUT IT.

I have an unholy addiction to lip gloss and lotions, a side effect of my never-ending quest for soft skin and lips. I'm really quite the connoisseur, to be honest. Both my lotion and lip gloss must be softening - but not sticky!, smell good, and taste good (I'll leave it to your imagination why I would want my lotion to taste good). Having just recently discovered my New Favorite Lip Gloss (which I am totally whoring out here in hopes they see my devotion and contact me to make me their new spokesperson and give me a free lifetime supply of it, which will be great until I discover a new favorite lip gloss in a few months), I am really bummed not to have it at my beck and call. I am having to make do with the cherry-flavored Chapstick that I've had in my desk drawer for months. It's just not the same.

My life is so hard.

Veeba said...

Life without lip gloss? How will you survive? It's a must for every girl.

MWP, nice catch. Fixed! You win....well, nothing other than my undying devotion.

You mean it doesn't come naturally? That you are merely a flawed mortal, not perfection to be idolized and worshipped?


I feel so let down. It's getting darker... and cold. Tell little Timmy I love him.

Storm said...

Well, at least you recognize the important things in life! I could never survive without my lip gloss. I wear it all day and then slather it on at night before I go to bed.

KT said...

I am the same...chapstick/lotion ADDICT! I can not wash my hands w/o putting on lotion after and I am constantly putting on chappie...esp. right before I go to bed!

I am a minor Chapstick freak. . But its those girls who annoy the hell out of me when you see them every 5 minutes rubbing crap on thier lips. . .

I opt for Chapstick 'All Natural' as needed. .

Me? I would have flipped out over the lack of cell phone! No touchy the cell phone! My cell phone. . . MIIIINE!

**ahem**

I'm ok, I swear.

Grafs said...

I am addicted to Chapstick. Pretty soon they will be starting a Chapsticks Anonymous. Every 5 minutes? That calls for hospitalization.

If you think that CO Bigelow stuff is good, you should try their Mentha Lip Shine -- it gives you the gloss, cools your lips AND gives you minty fresh breath.

Yeah, I work at a place that sells it (Bath and Body Works). So of course I own it. But at least I get a discount :)

Anonymous Midwest Girl said...

OK, Twitter, you're my new best friend. That's where I got mine...I have the Rose Salve stuff too, but it doesn't taste as yummy. Hook a sista up!

jamwall said...

i have an unholy addiction to drawing big red lips on the founding fathers on all US currency.

john boy said...

Protecting those lips of yours is definitely important. Somebody get this girl some gloss now!

~Rachael said...

I have to have chap stick or lip glass around too.I have 5 dif lip stuff in my purse right now!
Hope you get your stuff back!

S.C. said...

You think not having your stuff for a day sucks?

My brother managed to drive 9 hours before realizing he had no cash, no checks, no cards, no driver's license...

Chixulub said...

Shit, that reminds me. I lost my driver's license. Left it in the bank drive through, but the bank says they don't have it, so the next guy in line must have figured it'd come in handy. In case he ever wanted to steal my identity. I half hope he'll try it: the best he could do is steal my DEBT!!!

Shawn said...

S.C. - Wow...that's pretty good gas mileage. At least he had that going for him.

AMG - Were you a Carmex girl when you were younger? I'm pretty sure they put heroin in that stuff. I knew a lot of girls from junior high who ended up strung up on that shit. Such a waste...

I've started a prayer circle here in Wisconsin to help send you the strength to get over your terrible tragedy. May God grant you a case of free shit... er, stuff...

Lord Chimmy said...

Just rub butter all over your lips and skin. ummm mmmm. Love me some butter.

illimitable voices said...

It is amazing how we cannot live without little things. For millions of years life existed without cell phones. Now, I can't leave the house with out one.

Oh well.

Kitsune said...

Awww.... It's like Sideshow Bob in prison...

Is this where I make the bad pun about paying you lip service?

Me said...

I have to have my Smith's rosebud salve lip stuff before bed. I understand the addiction.

I'd be lost without my purse. Even moreso than my lip gloss.

Niffy said...

My new fav that I picked up last week: Burt's Bees. Oh how I love it. Bees wax and all natural stuff and the best part is it smells like peppermint (it has peppermint oil in it) and it makes my lips cool and tingly. Not sticky, great colours. I'm in Love.

The Muse said...

I, too, am a CO Bigelow fan. I'm partial to the Mentha Lip Shine, but I haven't tried the MFLBalm. You may have a fellow addict on your hands.

Oooh, ooh, have you tried the flavored body powders by Urban Decay (speaking of yummy-skin-stuff)? They're heavenly... and I'm sure AMB would like them, too. ;)

Wow. You're life is hard. LOL. How can you ever survive without the gloss? I'm the same way with little things. I get obsessed and then I get bored and then I move on to the next obsession. Maybe it's a girl thing. LOL.

LocuTus of Borg said...

There is nothing wrong with that!! I put lotion on each day. And I have a thing of chapstick everywhere!! Car, desk drawer, home, bathroom, backpack, daypack, etc. There must be 20 sticks lying around my vicinity haha.

Night Flier said...

That is a cross to bear! My lips feel naked without the right lipgloss! Before every meeting I have (several each day), I always have to gloss up! :)

Justice said...

Glad to hear you have your priorities in line. *S*

Gordy said...

So what do you taste like then?

DIAMONDKT said...

I can't but help to wonder what type of scene you must create when you are in Bath & Body Works licking lotion. It would definitely liven up my mall shopping experience. Were you a paste eater as a child? Just teasin'. Good tasting lotion and lip gloss - good thinking there! ;)
