Girl Questions

I was 23 before I really learned to be a girl--you know; hair, clothes, makeup, flirting.  Girl stuff.

That kind of stuff didn't and doesn't come to me naturally. I have to make a conscious effort to stay on top of girl things because my natural entropy leads to over-sized men's sweaters and pants from the local thrift store.

That being said, I'm having a trouble with a couple of current trends.  Because I don't have anyone to turn to with girl questions I'm turning this over to the internet.

1. Dry Shampoo.  Now, I can get behind the dry shampoo trend.  Going a couple of days between stylings? Great idea.  What kills me is that yesterday while I was reading a review the woman criticized a dry shampoo for not letting her go more than a week between washings.  A week?  I don't know if I should be amazed or horrified.  Are average people really doing that?

2. Skinny Jeans.  Once again, I understand this trend.  Cute skinny jeans with a bulky sweater, or a scarf or a jacket.  Love it. I am now into my third pair of skinny jeans (one was a maternity pair so I'm not sure that they even count) and what I do not understand is how on earth do you keep them up?  Every time I wear them I spend the whole day pulling them up.  How do you ladies keep those jeans from giving you a plumber's crack every other second?


  1. I doubt I'm average, but I'll go as long between washings as I can get. I average about a week, but will go longer if I don't go swimming. My hair is visibly oily on about the 4th or 5th day, but normalizes again after that. Yes, I've been doing this a long time, since college (1996ish). I started one day at a time, like everything else. :) My hair adjusted just fine. I use dry shampoo if I need to go somewhere on GrossDay. But the lady criticizer is right, dry shampoo only works once. It actually just extends your GrossDay to the next day instead.

    I haven't tried skinny jeans yet. Kinda scared. :s

  2. You need to buy a good dry shampoo. I used to have to shampoo everyday. Now I can go three to four days using the dry shampoo just once. I really love Tigi Rock Aholic brand. It's expensive but it saves me time and money and sanity.

    I have skinny jeans but they're all a bit higher than the butt crack :) try the Gap.
