I am not a girlie girl.
I’m not a tomboy either.
I’m a geeky girl. A nerd.
Not for me things that are pink & frilly, or floral or covered with hearts & I am no fan of glitter, hair dodads, makeup, most jewelry, high heels & rarely will you catch me in a dress. I prefer jeans, sandals & black tee shirts with obscure references to sci fi shows on them.
I’d be a teensy bit more girly if more of my communication was done with a paper & pen.
What you don’t realize is that whenever I mention Nathan Fillion on this blog you are spared the ‘I’s dotted with red hearts and the puffy flowers & hearts drawn all around his name with a pink glitter pen.
If I had to write his name down with a pen, that is what it would look like.
Probably their would be a “Mrs” in front of his name too & there would be a lot of giggling as I did it.
I get all girlie and 11 years old when I think of my crushes.
But I get geek points because he starred in a relatively obscure sci fi tv show and people say “who?” when I mention his name.
The only really consistent girlie thing that I do is paint my nails.
I have good nails. Strong, well shaped, a decent length, no hangnail or cuticle problem. When people ask me what my favorite body part is I always answer “My fingernails” (what? you don’t get that question on a regular basis?)
I feel good when my nails are done. Even if my hair has decided it is going to be neither straight nor curly but instead is rather fuzzy all over, I still feel good about myself because my nails look nice.
Plus, your nails do not get fatter if you eat a container of ice cream washed down with peanut butter cookies & I like that in a body part.
I like having a decent manicure, but I don’t like getting a manicure. I paint my own nails. Mostly because I am cheap & after 30+ years of nail painting I’m pretty good at it.
What makes you feel good about your appearance?
