Manicure (106/365)

Bugs Bunny: Oh, for shame! Just look at your fingernails!
[Rushes off and immediately returns with manicurist's table and equipment and begins to do the monster's nails]
Bugs Bunny: My, I bet you monsters lead interesting lives. I said to my girlfriend just the other day - Gee, I'll bet monsters are interesting, I said. The places you must go and the places you must see, my stars! And I'll bet you meet a lot of interesting people, too. I'm always interested in meeting interesting people. Now let's dip our patties in the water!
[Dips the monster's hands into two bowls where two mousetraps snap shut on them]

Hair-Raising Hare. Dir. Chuck Jones. 1946. Warner Bros. Pictures.

TIME:  4:33 PM
PLACE:  Kitchen
SUBJECT:  DramaQueen painting my nails

DQ, StellaDella and I went to Target to pick up a few things and DQ talked me into buying her a new bottle of nail polish – Sally Henson Hi-Definition Nail Color #14 “Spectrum”.  When we got home, she then talked me into letting her paint my nails with the new turquoise color.  Why not?  I haven’t had a manicure in a couple of years. ~*~*~ And FYI? I hate - HATE! - the term “mani-pedi.”  In fact, just typing it gave me the heebee jeebees.  Why? Well, because to me, “pedi” sounds like the plural of “pedophile,”  Ick-y.  I know it’s standard for the industry, but I will just continue to say the entire word and not the shortened, “cute” version thankyouverymuch.

Well, now I'm going to hate it too, because you know I'll think of what you said every time I hear it! :)
