When I grow up I want to be

I have about a zillion things I need to do so what am I doing? I am sitting here contemplating my navel....soooo.....I've decided to do something useful and compile a list of things I want to be when I grow up

So far I have

A Lipstick Namer
Can you imagine how cool that would be!! I think I would be fantastic.........you could have things like Purink (which is a combination of purple and pink obviously) or Zombie Blue or Road Kill Red!! (See, told you I'd be great!!)

I could be a Fashion Detective!! (or maybe constable??)

I could arrest people for having incredibly stupid hair (there seems to be a lot of that about at the moment - I saw a girl today that was obviously trying out two different styles on either side of her head), I could insist that teenage boys go wild and actually buy trousers that fit and I could ban shell suits for life!! (I think the world would be a better place without shell suits!!)

Hairdresser Torturer
Not all hairdressers just the ones that wash your hair. They always seems to manage to spray the water down both your front and back before then going on to try and give you a frontal lobotomy whilst pretending to give you a scalp massage!! (and I'm not even going to get into the scalding hot vs freezing cold water thing)

A Singer
I'll follow people, whom I find mildly irritating, around all day singing annoying little ditties that they can't then get out of their head for weeks and weeks (Like Wigfield's Saturday Night or The Chicken song)

or maybe I could just be a Fairy Princess......what do you think?

(Can you tell it's been a LONG day!!! I went shopping - I tried to buy a lipstick....I gave up, I saw some outfits that were criminal, I've had a haircut (They've made a really good job of the cut but I do think hairdresser torturer would be a good occupation) and I've been singing bloody Christmas Carols since I got home (I'm doing a JJ and only singing the one line over and over again and it's driving me nuts.........I think it's only fair that I get to inflict that suffering upon someone else!!))

I think it's probably just as well that I am staying at home tonight!!


  1. You'd be a great lippy naming, hairdresser torturing, annoying ditty singing, fashion detective:-) You'd also make a great fairy princess and you could make all those horrible clothes and hairstyles disappear!

    Lip balm is so much easier to buy with nice straight-forward fruity names:-)

    Now haven't you got things to do???

  2. You have high ambitions! Good for you! :-)

    First time at your site... You have an original flair for writing! :-)

  3. Oddly, I see you as an astronaut?

    But I doubt you're ever going to grow up which is really rather marvellous...

  4. Lane - Thanks....I like to think so!! Although I have to be honest and say that I had not thought of stringing them together. Now that you have I think you have come up with my ultimate job description!!!

    Yay for Lip balm!! and erm....yes I do....but I am procrastinating desperately!!

    Dave - Welcome :-). High ambitions indeed.....I'm sure there are a few that I missed off the list...

    Jen - Astronaut....I'd not considered that....but I do quite like the idea of being a tube (my next door neighbours son uttered that when asked by a posh relative what he wanted to be when he grew up - she was utterly horrified!!)

    Growing old is not something that matters.....unless you are a cheese!!

  5. You are the new queen of procrastination! Love your lippy name ideas though! There's definite potential there!

  6. Mel - I kinda liked 'Road Kill Red' myself!!
