Poor Ms. Shahi (Not!)

After being instrumental in shoving Taraji P. Henson off Person of Interest, Sarah Shahi is now shedding copious WWT over losing her own Nancy Drew franchise, whining that there is a need for strong women role models. Interesting that Ms. Shahi feels that way now, when she was all gung-ho in having a strong female role fridged on Person of Interest. When you lie down with dogs, you tend to get up with fleas Ms. Shahi. You were more than happy to play “Catwoman” in Noland’s fantasy of turning Person of Interest into Batman by fridging Taraji P. Henson, now when they give you the finger too, you want to play the “strong woman” card. To hell with you. If you believed in strong woman roles you would’ve stood up for TPH, but of course, that’s too much to ask for a fellow “WOC.”

Oh the schadenfreude is strong with this one.

Roberta Gellis Has Passed Away

I’ve mentioned before that I have a Keeper Shelf on my iPad of the books I read over-and-over again to help me hone my writing skills. That shelf is totally dominated by Roberta Gellis. Nobody could weave a tale like this woman. Those of you who compliment my character building skills should know I owe a tremendous debt to Roberta Gellis. She was my mentor. Everything I know about character building and story telling came from her.

Me and My Skin

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any beauty tips. And what with menopause, my skin has gone through some changes and I’ve had to mix it up a bit. I’ve always been blessed with good skin that required little to no maintenance, even when I was a teenager. Well, with the ‘Pause for the Cause, all that changed. My dry skin was suddenly even drier and my old nemesis from childhood, eczema, returned with a vengeance. I got hyper pigmentation and my skin looked dull and gray. Since I started using these two products consistently, the turnaround has been miraculous.

I still love the Philosophy Booster Caps, but considering it’s $35 per ounce, I’ve been on a quest for a cheaper alternative and I believe I’ve found it. http://amzn.to/1SYxfil

Now, here’s the deal with this, it works as well as the Vitamin C powder, but it’s not as finely milled so you have to dissolve it in a little water first. Takes about 4 minutes to dissolve, then it’s good to go. I spread it over my face, neck, décolletage, and elbows which tend to take a beating and look it. I’ve been using it twice a day for a month and my skin looks amazing.

To head off my eczema, I’ve discovered this little cream. I use it every day, and haven’t had an outbreak. It’s inexpensive and I really like it. If you’re not feeling the sandalwood scent, try the unscented, but the sandalwood wears off in about thirty minutes. http://amzn.to/1q0uMJW
