Just another mascara monday.

Get excited people…I got another tube of mascara in the mail today.

This is my third surprise product that I have so graciously received from a reader and let me tell you…it does not get old.

Once again, it feels like Christmas morning!

I tore open the package, excited to see what could be inside.

To quote the dad from A Christmas Story as he lifts off the top of the fra-gee-lay box containing the leg lamp, “There could be ANYTHING in there!”

I get giddy pretty easily.

This package was from my old friend from high school, Jocelyn.
Jocelyn is a goodie.

At Gaither High School in Tampa Florida, Jocelyn and I loved the following:

• Cruising for boys in my dad’s convertible
• Being thespians (that’s THESpians…with a TH)
• Making our hair super-gigantic:

Thespian Awards.

The envelope included:

L’oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara
• Two pieces of Laffy Taffy (sour apple and banana)
• The best damn review for a mascara ever:

Jocelyn, thank you for the mascara, and for your review…I do love it.
But based on your letter I do have two tiny pearls of wisdom for you:

Please don't sleep in your make up; this kept me awake last night.


Please don't let Drew Barrymore's cuteness talk you into anything anymore. Back in the day she got me to buy some Guess? Jeans, see a movie multiple times called Poison Ivy, and in 1995 she made me pay for a Playboy Magazine. She has some secret power, I think.

You always did have beautiful eyes and eyelashes, and just so you know, whenever I hear “Circle in the Sand” by Belinda Carlisle or “The Flame” by Cheap Trick, I totally think of you.
