SS - Mae West said...


I don't like myself, I'm CRAZY about myself!

Well good for you, Mae. I'm following your lead, even if completely unsure of what's going to come out, but I'm risking it because I'm having a good hair day. I just caught sight of my locks a minute ago and I nodded approvingly - wow! Go hair, aren't you looking all smooth and healthy today? *insert whistle*


And why is hair so important? Well, ask the lions why they need their mane and, while you're at it, ask the Leos why they're so obsessed about their hair. For a Leo, the sign that is more concerned with their own identity and individuality, their hair is a mark of that essence, maybe even an expression of their uniqueness, if you must. That's why, for some, it's not about having beautiful hair, but having the wildest, craziest hair, having hair with a life of its own. And yes, I knew you were going to ask about the bald people. Yes, yes. Well, there are many ways of being bald, that's all I have to say (wow, I should be a politician, I'm so good with twisting words around, go me!).


So hair is an issue and Mae West had good hair, goldie locks. And, ah, quelle surprise, she was a Leo too! (I swear I didn't know, I only just googled the woman!)


Oh you want to know about me? I'm this incredibly bright person, who has great intuition and a broad vision of the Universe. (See how I started writing about Leos without knowing Mae West was one?) I thrive on my imagination and my daydreaming but I'm extremely sensible and practical when I need to be. I pick up on things around me and have an amazing ability to put myself in other people's shoes. I'm curious about the World and that is reflected on my great knowledge of various subjects. I write well and have a really great talent for languages. I'm just so brilliant you wouldn't believe!

(all of the above references are true to a point, but here they were highlighted to reach the superlative intention of the post).

Very entertaining! You are such a good writer!

Niall said...

ah!..Mae West,once said.." I used to be as pure as the drifted snow"..she was asked, " what happened?"..she replied " I drifted!"...

If it were another person who had writen your post, i would have dismissed it as pure arrogance..but in your case, it's all true! (except the bit about the hair..I'll just have to take your word for it..but I'm sure that's true too!)

PS..MY hair and I used to be so great together..but it had a mind of it's own and we had a creative difference..sadly it went off on it's own to pursue a solo career...I've not seen it since!

Devilish One: Love your comment on the many ways of being bald: it conjured up pictures of bald heads with wild masses of hair stuffed inside them. (Maybe leaking a little out the ears.)

In your list of all your glories, you left out your also being one helluva musical shaman.

Shoes you definitely do, most assuredly.

Devil on, Devil Mood.

Tanya Gwen Minnick said...
