Laughter and books make life a little easier

Skits and Apologies

Erm… hi… I’m still trying to recover from the shame of last week’s post. Firstly, it was late, and I really do try to post on either Friday or Saturday. If I allow myself to not keep to a schedule I know I will soon stop posting. Secondly, it was low-quality. A great part of it was just copy and paste. And thirdly, I found several typos a while after I published it. One of which was in the title. Which was automatically broadcasted to the world on Twitter. Yeah. I hope I didn’t send you all running for the hills. But… the good news is… this week’s post is a lot better… I think!


Status update:
Eating: Nopthing. Yep, that was a typo, but it looked too funny to correct! Nerd smile I am eating a nop-thing! *ahem* Apparently that is funny only to me…
Drinking: Tea.
Listening: “Fantasy Chorale” – West One Music
Reading: I should probably soon make a start on “Age of Iron” by J.M. Coetzee. That’s my next prescribed book-baby.


So… what’s on the menu this week? Well, it’s a little skit. About… you’ll see! Winking smile

To my male readers: Please don’t let the title make you stop reading. This isn’t actually about make-up at all. I could as easily have used images of a girl bullied at school and her counsellor. This was simply more fun to do!

(Also, please notice and appreciate that I finally seem to have mastered the Bezier tool. This used to be the one thing about vector drawing that was the bane of my life!)

And there you have it! Purple Mascara’s first visit to a support group seemed not to have gone so well! Rolling on the floor laughing


So, what do you think? Would you like to see more Purple Mascara skits in the future, or was this the most horrible thing in the history of horrible things you have ever read?


PS. Yes, this author does wear purple mascara, in case you were wondering. And yes, that is actually my opinion: that red mascara makes you look like a badly hungover vampire. Or a pathetic damsel in distress. It is not for nothing that they always use the description “red-rimmed eyes” when the heroine in those cheesy romance stories starts bawling her eyes out! Looky here:

That is not a colour that works in my mind!


Until next week then!

    This was entertaining. I like the very last punch line.

    Red mascara actually looks quite good on that model!

    I feel bad though, I did throw away my light blue mascara.

    • There’s something for everyone, I guess! 😉

      Hehe, wonder if it ended up in a support group!? 🙂

  4. Great post! And I am so hungry right now, even “nop-thing” sounds scrumptious.
