This Is Your First and Last Chance...

To see me without makeup or any kind of primping... I'm doing this because I love Mama Kat so much.. It's all her fault. She always brings the best out of me....

Today I picked the prompt #2:

"Take a picture of yourself right this minute without primping and explain to us why it is you have not washed your hair today."

Seriously, it is time for me to bare it all to you guys, right - this is the real Maki! So ZEXY isn't she?? That's why this is your first and the last time to see me without the makeup... I can totally see my true age and it's not pretty. You see the dark spots? Wrinkles? Ewww.

I took this photo 15 minutes before midnight - ahem...what's my daughter doing up this late??? Well, she took a nap very, very late and she's wide awake!!


I so did not wash my hair because it was my day off and I didn't feel the need to get pretty. All I want was to relax and washing my hair or putting makeup was the least thing I needed to worry. I am going to clean myself up tomorrow morning before going to work...

Also, this is my first - I picked second prompt. This is your lucky day! Wooo Hooo!

For my second prompt, I picked #1.

"If you were starring on American Idol TONIGHT and HAD to sing, what song would you choose and why."

I talked about my love for singing. I love to sing. I don't care if I am good or horrible. I just love to sing. If I were starring on American Idol tonight and had to sing, I would definitely pick the song, "It's My Life", "Underneath It All" or "Don't Speak" by No Doubt.

No Doubt Pictures, Images and Photos
No Doubt is definitely one my favorite bands - it has to do a lot with the generation I was in when I listened to their music. I was in my twenties living in Hawaii. No Doubt career peaked in 90's ~ early 2000's and I had the time of my life during those years.

How cool is it to be the only girl in the band, surrounded by the cool boys? It's awesome to be Gwen Stefani!

I haven't gone to Karaoke since I moved to Florida, but I used to sing No Doubt everytime I went to the Karaoke bars with my hubs and friends in Hawaii. So enjoy the songs I used to torture my friends and strangers with.

Michelle said...

Ok, how funny......I was going to pick a No Doubt song too! :)

Dan said...

Gwen is a good choice. At least you can sing (unlike me).

And I have to agree with thamesarino - you don't need to worry about makeup.

Good post - I came over from Mama Kat's

CJ said...

It would be so nice to have a voice nice enough to sing in public. I like to sing, but I do it in my car when I am alone and the windows are up. Otherwise I might be arrested for noise pollution.

Yay for No Doubt! Listening to them completely puts me in driving-to-high-school-sneaking-in-cigarettes mode.

I'm a big No Doubt fan as well . . . although I don't get off as much on the "surrounded by guys" part. ;-)

Riff Dog: Why not, surrouded by the guys is the best part!!! lol.. That would be my dream - singing in the boy's band, like Paramore.
