Welcome to "P" Magazine!



Welcome to "P" Magazine, The Penelope Magazine! With Penelope on every cover!

(Hmmm. "P" Magazine doesn't sound so good. Way worse than "O" Magazine.)

Okay, never mind. Scratch that. I don't think people want to read a magazine about pee, I mean "P"!!!

Yes, I am making fun of Oprah. Since all of media news is devoted to her this week. I think it's hilarious how she is on the cover of every issue of her magazine. And her magazine has her initial. It's cute, it's clever, it's.....egomaniacal.

The truth is, I have never actually watched her show. Not because I have anything against Oprah. I don't watch any daytime talk shows. Or morning talk shows. Or late-night talk shows. Or awards shows. I have a weird anxiety about watching people on live TV. I get nervous and clammy, worried they are going to embarrass themselves on national (and/or international) television. I like pre-recorded shows with laugh tracks. You know nothing embarrassing will happen, and you even have built-in cues so you know when to laugh. It's very convenient.

Anyhow, I fell asleep last night with wet hair, and when I woke up, my hair looked like Bon Jovi from 1984. (See above photo). And I thought....I should post this on my blog!

Here is my reading update.....I am having a crazy re-reading week. Just finished re-reading all three books in the Lucy Monroe "Ranger" series. Ready, Willing, and Able. (Cute titles!) They have ridiculously alpha, ex-military heroes who have a hard time differentiating between lusty, possessive obsessive attraction, and romantic true love. It's all so confusing! And I also just re-read Honor's Splendour by Julie Garwood, one of the greatest romance novels of all time. With another alpha male hero who refuses to believe that he is actually falling in love with his wife.

Now, I am off to the plant nursery to purchase stuff for my window boxes and veggie/herb garden. And I think I might jump back into Zoe Archer's series today.

Hope y'all are having a good week! Big Hair Forever!

I had the big hair back in the 80s!

I'd rather read "P" than "O" ;)

Enjoy planting today.

Hi Amber! I had big hair in the 80s, 90s, 00s, and 10s. Although I do usually put it up in a clip now. (So I look more grown-up and respectable.)

I love your big hair! Girl crush! Us redhead really have to stand strong together!
O - nope don't watch the show and I never have. O - don't read the magazine either.
I'm different though, I don't worry about embarrassing moments, I don't like self-appointed or fame-appointed gurus. Nothing personal. Just rubs me the wrong way.
I used to have big hair that I dried in the oven. Now I keep it short, still have bedhead though.

Uh, sorry redheadS since I think there are more than one of us!

Hooooo - ra for big curly hair!

I'm a lifelong big haired girl too! *high five*

You by the way look super cute and fantastic.

Hi Julia and Juju....so glad you approve of the "big hair" look! I have considered cutting it short and curly...maybe some day. But I fear that if I cut my hair I'll lose my super-powers.

Julie at Outlandish Dreaming said...

I love your big hair too! I had that look in the '80's as well - the constant scrunching with tons of product!

I think I've seen Oprah's show a few times in my life, have never been a follower of her - I agree - egomaniacal! I rarely watch TV, except Seinfeld reruns or Dick Van Dyck Show - with Laura Petrie. Live TV does nothing for me, though I used to watch award shows when I was younger, now I just go to the Fug Girls to see what everyone was wearing the next day.

Hi Julie....I still "scrunch"!!! I can't watch the Oscars (makes me way too nervous!), but I love looking at the fashion the next day. That's the best part of those things, anyway.

Julia Rachel Barrett said...

I think the curls are very sexy!

Penelope said...

Julia...thanks, babe!

Your hair doesn't normally look like that? ;)

Penelope said...

Hi heidenkind! I try not to leave the house looking like that every day. It's not nice to frighten small children.
