When I was younger I thought I would be one of those women who would take age as it came, grow old gracefully, let the sands of time drift as they may. I am not one of those women. I don't know whose crack pipe I was smoking out of when I thought this, because I am scared shitless of looking old. I had a dermatologist appointment this morning, because of my (crazy Irish, albino) lilly white skin, I need to have a doctor check it every year for skin cancer. It not a big deal, except the whole stripping naked thing, and then the whole process where the old man looks at your naked skin through a magnifying glass, cellulite at 1000x it's actual size...purty!
While I was there I thought that I would ask him a few questions that have been on my mind lately about my skin.
"Do you think that all the running I do will cause the skin on my face to sag and create saddle bags that hang from my face and I'll look like Droopy Dog?"
"I think my face has aged more than two years in the past two years, should I be worried?"
- No, you're just looking at your skin more closely, I don't think that we need to discuss "age management" with you for at least another 3 years.
"Three years - God, I thought you were going to say 7 or something like that, 3, I must look like shit!"
(doctor looks up and smiles)
"What about this purple line on my face, I just noticed this, what is this?"
- It's a vein, you're fair skinned, veins will start to show because your skin is so light, if it becomes a problem we can laser it out for (get this) short money. No problem.
I left the doctor thankful for the fact that I don't have skin cancer, but maybe even more thankful that in the future I will be able to fix my face for "short money" should I decide to take corrective action against time and gravity.
Well, chocolate cake sounds good right about now doesn't. Oh, smooth transition on that one JB.
As I mentioned before, CB's mom bought me the Veganomicon cookbook for my birthday last month and this is the first recipe that I made out of it and it was FANFUCKINGTASTIC. It tasted like real honest to god, full fat, animal product filled chocolate cake, without all the guilt. I'm not going to post the recipe because the book is so new and I want you to want to buy it, but if you leave a comment with your email I will send it to you. It should be in your recipe box, it's so good. How Good Is It?
