Monday Beauty Poll

By Glinda

84% of you are unwilling to have a professional makeover for your open casket funeral.  And it would seem that large part of that is because you are not planning on having an open casket funeral.  4% would totally do it, and 11% needed some more time to think about it.  I also do not plan on having an open casket, I’m thinking cremation is the way to go.  The one open casket funeral I did attend was very jarring in that the elderly lady who had passed had some VERY pronounced cosmetics on, and yet she didn’t wear any while she was alive. It was very jarring to see her like that, to say the least.  

And now for something completely different.

Alyssa Campanella of California was crowned Miss USA a few weeks ago, and she will go on to represent the country at the Miss Universe pageant.  I remember watching pageants as a young girl, but I don’t think I’ve actively sought to watch one in at least 25 years or so.

    A friend of mine was a recent Miss [her state] (the one that feeds into Miss America, not Miss USA). She’s going to be attending a very prestigious medical school, and did it for the scholarship money. While even the winner of Miss America only gets $50,000, which isn’t going to go very far at an ivy league med school, apparently they win other money along the way, plus get appearance fees for everything they go to.

    Still, I couldn’t do it. They basically own you for a year, and you’re constantly having to make appearances (all dolled up and in major heels), and essentially have no life of your own. No, thanks!
