Booty Short Stress

I report with a touch of sadness that last night’s pole dance class did not happen. Our instructor never showed up (BOO) so all of my booty short stress was all for naught. We ended up going to get suishi and then to a club called Suede. For the record, it’s hard to dance with cat ears on.

    Did you pull out the booty shorts in the end?

    It’s too bad she didn’t show up!

  2. Karen says:

    I had some really tiny shorts that I wear as a cover up at the beach. I was gonna wear those with some bikini bottoms underneath.

    I sooo couldn’t deal with tight booty shorts. Oh god, no.

    Yeah, I think we’re going to reschedule.

  3. Awwwwwww, I cant wait till u go pole dancing, waiting for an extensive review 😉

  4. Karen says:

    It’s supposed to be a really great work out. I dunno, I hope it actually happens and that the woman didn’t just take the money and run.

  5. Christine says:

    Ahhh! I feel ya. I wear semi-booty shorts to play tennis, but there’s never anybody there.

  6. Karen says:

    I’d rather attempt to dance on a pole rather than play tennis (I’m soooo bad at sports with projectiles) in pseudo booty shorts.

    I’m watching America’s Smartest Model right now. I feel my brain dissolving. What are you up to?

  7. Christine says:

    LOL! I’m not good at tennis, honestly. I’m in the WORST shape, and I can’t hit to save my life. But at least nobody’s watching me!

    I’m watching ANTM for the current cycle (missed Wednesday’s episode).

  8. Hey hun,
    Another q to ask u, im on the fence about MAC P+P Skin with SPF and the one without, I have heard that the one without SPF has shimmer particles, and the one with SPF is more mattifying, Im more of a dewy skin girl, but i wanted to know what ur take was on it, let me know..which one i should go for…
    thanks hun

    Hey Karen,

    It’s Monday and I’m watching I Love NY2 and I can’t wait for your post tomorrow! This episode was hilarious! 😉

    Happy MOnday!

    Hi I love Mac,

    Hmmm…I’ve only tried Prep + Prime Lip (which I LOVE!) but in general I tend to stay away from products that you apply all over the face which contain shimmer. My reason is that I have oily skin, and whenever I do an allover shimmer it makes me look like a BIG OLE GREASY DISCOBALL. No joke. I’m a dewey skin girl too, though, but I like to apply the shimmer only on specific places rather than all over. I’d go for the more mattifying one, myself.

  11. Karen says:

    Hi Lilan,

    I have it Tivoed! Can’t wait to watch it. I’ve been making personal bets with myself to see how I can last without blogging about the show (really, it just serves to cook my brain into mush) but I can’t seem to make it past THURSDAY without wanting to say something.
