Refining my Alien Look

LOL talk about the consquences of having so much idle time in daily life! This is something so damn foreign to me- I actually found myself getting Bored! On the upside though I notice so much difference in the mirror having moved back to clean air, actually having slept etc etc- I could barely recognise myself as the same face!

So anyway what does one do with so much idle time in daily life and no agenda?

To celebrate the alien-ness of this situation I got working on my neglected eyebrows...(yep, I wasn't exaggerating when I used the "B" word)...I figured my eyes are pretty wideset and I've heard your eyebrows should line up with your eyes so I tried to neaten the borders so they lined up...

cool the wide set alien look is a nice addition to the already "alien" pointy ears -now I just need green face paint! ^^

I remember asking my conventional minded makeup artist friend to make me blue for a fancy dress party. She was a really bad sport though she wouldn't do it because it made HER feel too uncomfortable vicariously to not have "pretty girl" makeup! Why do people have to be so boring?

I would have painted you blue! I bet you would have been adorable

I am not high maintenance but I am anal about my eyebrows. I don't know why, maybe it's my OCD showing

Aliens are cute and sexy, especially the clever ones :)

blue... Well that's a new thing. fascinating.
and she wouldn't do it for you.

I'm glad you got some sleep finally. Isn't it fun? Now all you need is a good book (or two) to read.

FG - I don't think cute and sexy ever qualify to be in the same sentence.

Actually I've been told several times you're too cutesy to be sexy. And that's the way I liiiike it...uh huh, uh huh! ;)However, never fear you can get all the Sexy (AND SMART) chick fix you need at Evil Shannanigans :)

HO maybe after the world cup is over- haven't opened any books but have bought lots!

You could not say cute sexy beacuse there is no such thing as a cute type of sexy (unless your Japanese, they seem quite obsessed with cute sexy - Bubble Girl is an example). But you could say cute and sexy. For example a woman might have cute ears and a sexy butt. The cute ears do not detract from the sexy butt :) The most attractive women have a unique (or alien) feature that make them special.

Photo please, otherwise how to compare the alien look of yours ?

zhen said...

haha FG thanks for the informative lesson! these finer nuances have never bveen covered before despite several attempts with obnoxious fire signs trying to make the cute sexy... Actually my friend's gay flatmate told her she had to reinvent herself as a slutty whore- that seems to be the popular line of thought for my skanky generation.

you are right though those Japanese schoolgirls do warrant cute and sexy being in one reminds me of that dumb movie my sassy girl all my mates seem to like.

Xebeche, I don't do photos(always have this creepy feeling they steal a bit of your soul!). unfortunately, it doesn't look like I'm going to get to Amsterdam this year either :(

Oh Z you are making me blush
Love ya!
And yes for the record, you can be cute and sexy at the same time. Hard to achieve but you do it!

The Zhen Master of cute and sexy :)

Your friend's gay flat mate is not giving her good advice unless she wants to make some money from her new look ;)

No offence to gay guys but I don't think they are the most qualified to give advice on what hetrosexual males want in a woman.

Hetrosexual males don't need to see skin to find a woman attractive. Think of how attractive an Islamic woman can be by only showing her eyes.

Its a woman's overall character which is made up of many many parts that makes her one to be chased. She might be chased by some guys in a sleezy pub with the slutty whore look. But I doubt that they will not be chasing her with feelings of romantic love.

I hope we all get to meet one day. Just to bury once and for all any speculation that there could be any "sexy" here. my ex possiblt put it best when he elaborated on the "cute" - like a CLOWN! HAHA. apparently if i don't open my mouth I might be able to pull off sexy for like 2s. No wonder I always had a thing for red noses and big shoes ;)

ps yeah I find gay gay guys can get on my nerves- my girly gfs like them though because they find hetero men threatening whereas gay guys make for "safe" friends...I found most of them historically so "girly" i got irritated! lol but then again most hetero men these days love their pink shirts and spend longer in a bathroom/combing their hair than me anyway :P

p.p.s true re the hijab...i was also told the ankles...i think women here show too much skin and wear way too tight clothes for me to appreciate if i were a man but HEY that is what the majority person appreciates so it makes sense to play statistics...if you're looking for quantity rather than quality

oh I don't know - I won my husband by showing A LOT of skin.


jk. but I really wanted to jump in the conversation.

Isn't there a picture of Zhen somewhere on this page? I seem to remember a picture of her with a hat a while back....
