No Silly! I didn't forget...

Yes folks, the Halloween Tutorial Series is still goin on...I haven't forgotten the requests, I've just been a bit sidelined.

If you must know (and really I know you don't care and barely even noticed...I would just like to vent) I was getting ready to do a Football Fan face paint look for the Halloween Series and bought a bunch of grease paint and face painting supplies at a local costume shop. I was playing around with them last week trying to figure out how to draw a Seahawks logo on myself (backwards in front of a mirror...).

Looking back on it now, I SHOULD have read the directions first. And I SHOULD have performed an allergy test on my arm. And I SHOULD have known better than to slather foreign goop on my face when even expensive ass lotions and creams and facials make me break out in a rash.

...do you see yet where I'm going with this?

No?

Well.... I broke out in a rash. A big, nasty, red, itchy, flaky rash. All over my face. STUPID grease paint!!!! Luckily I still had the cream the dermatologist prescribed for me the last time I broke out in a rash...

So I've just been chillin, went a whole 6 days with no makeup on just to give my face time to breathe and recover. As soon as I'm able to look at my makeup cabinet without the feeling of fear striking my tender heart, I'll resume with the Halloween stuff.

For football news...I'm not looking forward to tomorrow's games. Half my starting defense team (NY Giants) is injured...at least they were when I changed my lineup a couple days ago. Plus one of my wide receivers has an injured hamstring. Lovely.

Hope everyone is doing well! I'm gonna go stalk all your blogs now and leave my nasty little bits all over your pages...

And by nasty little bits I mean "comments". DUH!

Hey. Hope you're back to normal soon. Sorry to hear about that. I thought they made that face/Halloween paint hypoallergenic. Anyway, let's hope that doesn't happen again. Also, although the Halloween series is awesome, don't risk being in agony just to entertain us. We already know you have mad makeup skillz. :)

Don't worry about your NYG DST. They'll still do well. You should still be putting up good numbers with your offensive players. Good luck!

No worries. The Giants will rise to the occasion. They are on a special mission to soil the grand opening of the new stadium in Dallas. They have a higher cause than just beating the Cowboys.

I hope your rash goes away soon!

You shouldn't make rash decisions like that.

Hope your fantasy team kicks ass!

I think everybody in America outside of Dallas is rooting for the Giants to take down "America's Team."

And since I voted for the face painting idea, I have to say, "Glad to hear that that rash I gave you cleared up." That's the first time I've ever said that (and meant it.)

UGH! I feel your pain. My skin tends to overeact to things like that too. My kid was trying to talk me into dressing like Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas for Halloween, but I'm like NO WAY GIRLIE because I'd have to paint my face blue and I'm pretty sure I'd pay a rashy price for that.

I am shocked that Scope (or SkyDad, for that matter) didn't say, "I wanna see your nasty little bits."

SHOCKED! ; )

Hope you're back to normal (well, relatively normal) SOON!

I hate the Giants, but I hate the Cowboys even more. I was pleased as punch to see the Giants win, especially with Romo throwing three picks.
