Smiling with my eyes

No matter how many times I try, I can never master the smiling-with-your-eyes trick that the lovely miss Tyra Banks of ANTM ( has made so very famous. I’ve probably watched every episode of ANTM at least twice, but still I cannot get it down. I either look like I’m vaguely squinting at something in the far off distance or else I’m actually smiling. With my mouth.

Luckily for me, Miss Tyra has given a few tips that I will go home and practice in front of the mirror tonight. (Drunk).

The Flirting-With-a-Man Smile: “Turn your shoulder to your man, move your face down, and use a sound effect, a little hmmmmmmmmm.”

The Surprise Smile: “We’re not smiling like the surprise is real — it’s not ‘OMG, are you serious?'” It’s a hand to the cheek, and a gasp. Remember, the surprise isn’t like, swine flu or an unexpected breakup; it’s more of a “I forgot my contacts at home!”

The Catalogue Smile: “Put the left foot forward, and turn your head ahead as if there’s wind whipping you that way, and smile with your hand on your head and parted teeth. So walk forward with your hand on your right cheek, and step with your left foot, so your booty sticks out.”

The Angry Smile: Save this one for “bitches.” You move a hand to your hip, look forward, “dip that booty to the right,” and let your face say “Okay, okay, okay, uh-huh.”

The Smile With the Eyes ©: “This is crucial… It’s on magazine covers, it sells perfume, it sells shoes.” Tyra recommends pulling your shoulders down, facing forward, pretending there’s a string pulling your head up and that a dentist shot you in the mouth with Novocain. She said it’s “almost like you’re in Star Trek.”

Right ya are so!

Oh sweet Jeebus…

Pray for me. Think positive thoughts for me. Cross your fingers, toes, eyes and any other crossable limbs for me.

I’m driving home from work today. In traffic. Proper scary people-trying-to-get-home-after-a-long-day-in- work-traffic.

Methinks I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. Don’t know why but I’m in a complete fouler for absolutely no reason. My auntie brought my two little cousins over and then me and the mammy brought them to Dundrum to see Bee Movie. The film wasn’t bad actually, very kiddie but it’s short and quite watchable. Then when we went to MacDonalds afterwards, I seriously questioned ever having kids. The place was a mess and full of screaming ‘children’ with ketchupy faces determined to rub it over me and my new bag. Normally, I wouldn’t give a toss but today I had to stand outside and smoke 3 of my precious Vogue Menthols until I’d calmed down a bit.

It’s very strange, I have nothing to be moany about and usually I’m a total softie for the cutesy wutesy small people. Not today however. I’m in spoiled brat mode.

Think I need to listen to this song for some inspiration:

Crzy Britney

Oh Lord – Britney rushed to hospital after 3 hour standoff with cops

Seriously… that’s pretty crazy. There are kids involved for jeebus’ sake. I was just discussing Britney with a friend last night who says she much prefers her now that she’s gone loolaa as ‘it gives her a personality’ rather than the ‘virginal – look but don’t touch’ thing she used to have going on. I agreed to an extent but not if it gets to the stage if she’s off her face minding the babies. I mean, everyone likes a bit of crazy now and then and she’s no Amy Winehouse (or is she…) but leave the children out of it please.

And does anyone else feel that daddy K-fed only wants them for the child support?

*cynical, very cynical*
