It's the day I can finally tell you my big news.
I'm going to write a beauty book. Step one: Always remove eye makeup before bed. Okay, no. But if I ever go missing or you're needing a shot for my funeral program, please use this unretouched photo from eight seconds ago. I like the Big Boy swirl in my hair.
Okay, I'll stop. MY BIG NEWS IS:
It's a fancy company in LA who came up with the site, and here's what they say about it:
Purple Clover is a new site for people who hate being referred to as Generation X or “baby boomers” (or, for that matter, “sir” or “ma’am”). We’re young at heart, if not in age, and comfortable in our own skin, wrinkles be damned. If we were a celebrity, we’d be Juliana Margulies or George Clooney, only not as good looking. Although we’d never say it out loud, especially in front of our kids, we are in our prime – still cool, still curious, still a little crazy. But most of all, we are real.
And that’s exactly what Purple Clover will be: a destination that reflects the truth about how we really live today, although we’re still a little fuzzy on how we want to live tomorrow.
I knew I was gonna write for them awhile back, and I wrote that intro I linked to up there (here it is again. You get to learn my real name. Which 98% of you knew from Facebook and that newspaper article last year anyway), but yesterday I got to see the real website, and I ended up clicking on everything on that dang thing. Which is good. Because what if I were a columnist for a stupid site?
Anyway, you can see my new columns every Monday, which I will tell you about here, and yay! It's kind of exciting.
So now you know.
