Marching band competition results nobody cares about except me...

Well, it is my blog, after all!

Silver's band did not place in the top three (or four, or five...).

HOWEVER, they did improve immensely since the beginning of marching band season.
They got a ranking of "Excellent", which is only only one step below "Superior", the highest possible rank, and they only missed Superior by 0.05 points.

The winner in their class/division was an AWESOME band from Highland High School in Albuquerque, NM. The Hornets, BTW.
They got an amazing score of 84.4 points, which blew the competition away.

Whew, now I've gotten all the band-geekiness out of my system...aren't you all happy and relieved? ;-)

In other news...when I got home yesterday from various errands, I realized I didn't have a speck of makeup on.

I must have forgot because we were in a hurry to leave since we had to be somewhere by a certain time.

All you men out there are thinking, "Big Deal!"

You don't know, you just don't know.

When a woman reaches a "certain age", she needs HELP to achieve that youthful glow, that flawless complexion...VISIBLE eyelashes, dammit!

And I was wondering why everyone I spoke to yesterday prefaced their remarks with "Gaaaaah!".

Ahem.

I can't depend on my daughter, either. She didn't even notice. Unlike 95% of teenage girls nationwide, she hates makeup.
When I got on her case for letting me out of the house with a naked face, all she said was, "Mom, you look fine, don't worry about it."

Obviously no help there. If I hadn't been there at her conception and delivery, I'd think she was adopted. And since she looks a lot like me (according to most people who see us together), I guess I have to rule out a mix-up at the hospital, too.

At least she can get ready to go anywhere in about 15 minutes, that's including shower time.

Hope you're having a not-so-sucky Monday!

I'd rather wear no makeup than no hair product. What does that say about me?!!

At least you wore clothes, it could have been worse.

European - I'm lucky, I've got curly hair that does pretty much whatever it wants, and still looks fine (to me!), so I never have to worry about that...it's the rest of me that always needs work!
Besides...you're young and look fabulous as you are, wait a decade and you'll know what I'm talking about!

Grosser Bruder - I know...I've done the whole "putting my coat on over my bra while forgetting my shirt" thing, but luckily I've always caught it before leaving the house!

Thanks to both of you for stopping by, I was starting to have rejection issues!

It can't be that bad to be out of the house for one day without makeup. I mean, have you looked at some of the people in the street? In PJ bottoms and slippers? Honestly... no makeup is pretty close to perfect compared to what runs around out there. ;)

Of course I'm of the "no makeup" variety as well. My morning routine consists of combing my hair, putting it into a ponytail, putting on my glasses, and adding some chapstick. Ah... and getting dressed, of course.
