Ack.

Pin It I am having a bad face day. You know what that is right? You wake up and your face looks puffy and a little askew, like maybe you slept on it wrong and now it is not quite right? And it stays that way all day? And your husband is sure you are imagining it? But you are not imagining it? Because your face - it looks all weird? BAD. FACE. DAY.

And also, I seem to be fatter than I was yesterday. About 30 pounds fatter, to be specific. Mysterious.

And suddenly my clothes look very strange and even more unfashionable than usual. I usually have at least three two solid go-to outfits that are neutral enough that people will not laugh me out of the room when I show up wearing them, but they seem to be missing and all that is left in my closet are incredibly horrifying, lame, tacky clothes. Stacy and Clinton, they would give me that LOOK. You know the one. And then they would see my shoes and it would just get ugly.

Plus, my hair - ACK, what is it doing? And why does it look all bleachy today? It's usually extremely gorgeous and cool.

On a related note, I seem to have been struck dumb, and have no coherent or clever thoughts in my head at all.

I'm sure this all has nothing to do with having lunch today with some blog-friends I've never met before. Totally unrelated, I'm sure.

So, uh, if any of you happen to read this before we meet today, just keep in mind - I don't usually look like this. I'm usually much prettier, and thinner and more fashionable and more interesting. And less dorky. FAAAAR less dorky.

So NO JUDGING. Cuz usually, I'm a freakin' ROCK STAR.

  3. HAHAHA I had that exact day 2 days ago when I met a blog friend. I wanted to yell -hey! this isn't the normal me. Usually I'm 20 lbs thinner and I have really great hair.

    Turns out it didn't matter at all. We were friends because, well, we were already friends.
    But I know whatcha mean.

  5. Ooh, yeah, I have those days. A little too often, actually....

  6. So far I've done two blogger meetups (one in Seattle, one in Provo), and I had similar days. Ended up laughing so hard I completely forgot it all. The last one? We stayed at the restaurant for -four- hours because we were having such a brilliant time. You'll be great!

  7. Sadly, I am a dork both in real life and on the blogs. And ya paid me back as I snorted pop through my nose.

    I'm having a bad face, bad hair, bad clothes, bad body monthy/year. Not that I'm counting or anything.

    Hope you have some fun!

  9. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has bad face days. Sometimes, stuff just doesn't seem to be lining up the way it should. I'm sure your blogger friends will love you anyway. Have fun!

  10. Have you hijacked my face, hair, and wardrobe? Cuz that's me you're talking about.

    Seriously, hope your lunch was lots o fun!

  11. Don't worry! You looked fabulous. Your face, hair, and clothes were all up to standard. It was great to meet you. Fun blog, I can't wait to read more, you'll be on my Google reader now!!

  12. I suspect you look totally cute and together and are just being very hard on yourself. If we were to meet for lunch (What's halfway? Kansas?) I'm sure I'd come away from the lunch happy to have met you and a little envious at how cute and blonde and adorable you are.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well, for the record, I thought you looked great. Now I know your excuse for hiding in the back for those pictures at the end. But I still got you...ha ha ha...I still got you! (I posted them too.)

    I'm always intimidated by those blog lunch things. I love to go, but I feel like I have to perform or something--like Sue-donym said. It was fun to meet you, though. I'm glad you came.

  14. I had fun meeting you today, and no worries. Your were neither tacky nor boring.

  15. Love your new header!

    ReplyDelete
  16. you looked fabulous. You were fabulous! I'm so glad I got to meet "funny sue".

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh Sue, if that was a bad face day for you then I need to go crawl in a hole. If you ever want to feel small and tiny just stand next to me, the jolly green amazon, and your self esteem will quickly be restored.

    loving you even more now

    ReplyDelete
  18. Well, obviously you are a rawk star. No doubts here. I lurv you. And, I love the new header. I truly do. Your face doesn't look squishy at all.

  19. Kalli is totally lying, she's tall but thin and fabulous. And so funny! Kalli and Suedonym were cracking me up. It was fun to meet the women behind the blogs. Azucar, you are awesome for putting it together.

    I was nervous, so I didn't have much to say, but it was still fun. I could have used a stiff drink probably, if only I drank.

    Julie, please do not caption that photo identifying who each person is, because - aaack!!! I am in denial about having that many chins. Diet? So back on.

  20. What! You're having a bloggy-lunch party! I think I'll cry into my pillow because I so want to meet you live and in person (and not in an obsessive, SWF creepy sort of way either.)

    At any rate, I demand pictures and a word-for-word relay. Go.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh my...the horrors!!! I'm sure you looked spectacular!! By the way, I'm terribly jealous of the blog friends you were able to meet!!!

  22. i have bad face day all the time. and it usually lasts for a week.

    so i guess mine is bad face week.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Someday I will tell you about when I sort of stood up new blog friends twice because I was so insecure about meeting them.

    (OK to be fair, the first time I went early and left a card for the birthday girl and the second time it was only merely nearly standing up because although in my head I had convinced myself Wednesday was Tuesday, when they called me I did eventually show up.)

  24. So I was bummed I couldn't go today and now I just read through the comments and discovered who all I missed.

    I am now utterly and completely totally bummed.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sounds like it was a blast. There's a post coming, right? RIGHT?

    ReplyDelete
  26. It was a lot of fun.

    And you are not fat.

    Not even in your face.

    ReplyDelete
  27. You guys seriously, I am so underwhelming in person. You missed nothing. Well, that's not true, you missed Azucar and Kalli and Suedonym and Julie and Raquel and a bunch of other fun bloggers. But missing out on meeting me should not even register, because I was a mouse.

    ReplyDelete
  28. AZ - thanks for the LIES - proves you are a good friend :>

  29. Justrandi, there won't be a post about it because it would just be like, "And then I sat there and didn't say anything. And then I laughed at ____. And then I sat there some more." Not all that interesting ;>

  30. I hate it when I gain 30 lbs in one day. Seriously. How does that happen? It bugs me. And I totally get the whole "bad face" day. It happens to me, too. It's usually related to those 30 lbs.

    ReplyDelete
  31. A bad face day? Well, when you get to my age, tell me about it. I regularly look in the mirror and ask myself, "Who is that old lady? Surely not me!" If only it would just last one day and then I would go back to being the real wrinkle-less, bag-less me.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I loved your Christmas letter - where did it go? (I can still see it on Reader?) As always, terribly clever. Happy New Year.

    ReplyDelete
  33. You ARE a total rockstar. I have a really hard time imagining you as socially awkward! I don't really believe it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm seriously bummed.

    I picked up an extra shift to help cover the cost of Santa's arrival.

    I didn't see any bad face, bad hair, bad anything chicks in the pics soooo were you behind the camera?

    We gotta plan another one...

  35. :( frown, grumble, wipe tears, grumble, frown, :(

    If you didn't notice, that was a palindrome. I wish I could have gone, even if I would have felt unstylish, frumpy, chubby, not very cool, etc, etc, etc. But I would have suffered it to meet you.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hope you had fun! I have a lot of bad face days. Lucky for me I don't get a chance to look in the mirror very often, and when I do, I'm too blind to see how bad I look.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The same thing just happened to me---gaining weight overnight! literally, yesterday, yesterday, I was 15 pounds lighter. I'm not kidding! there must be something in the water?
    Hope you had a great time with your "new" friends!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yeah, what is with the puffy face? I HATE that. And then there is the slightly puffier area under one eye. I guess it's allergies, but it looks absolutely lovely when the light hits it just right and you look about 100 years old. Fabulous. Love those days.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Totally happens. It is not an imagined phenomenon - at least it's not in my house. It happens for a day - usually an important one. And is often gone later. Mysterious. But very real.
