Totally Awkward Tuesday

Thanks to Joanie's Random Ramblings for telling me about Tova's Totally Awkward Tuesdays! Tova Darling is the host of Tova's Totally Awkward Tuesday.. and they're pretty funny, so you should definitely check that out.

I've been racking my brain for a good awkward story... and let me tell ya, it's a bit hard! I think most of my awkward moments are acting related... so remembering one that isn't is a challenge in and of itself!

Working at a radio station... we get our fair share of celebrities who come in and sing for us. Some of them are up and coming, and some of them are people who we've all heard of before. A few weeks ago, Nick Lachey was here. Today, this girl Jessie James is singing for us. Two years ago, Elliot Yamin from American Idol performed at one of our events. But Elliot Yamin wasn't the only American Idol Finalist that I've met. Last year... around this time... we had another one come in. But before I get to that, I need to tell you how I spent my lunch break.

I was in desperate need of foundation... my foundation was crappy, and didn't match my skin. So for my lunch break, I went to ULTA and played The Foundation Game. To play the Foundation Game, you take off all makeup... and then you try various foundations from different brands, shades, and textures in different parts of your face and see which one looks the best. I ended up picking Stila's Illuminating Foundation 10 Watt. Now, I actually don't like it on me, but that's another story. During The Foundation Game, I had about seven different kinds of foundation. I had completely forgotten that we had an artist coming in that day.

I go back to the station with at least seven different foundations on my face. I didn't bother taking them off, because I was like "whatever, I'm just going to sit in my cubicle all day anyway," but when I go in... there's all this pizza in the conference room. Pizza in the conference room means that there's an artist. And that's when I remembered that Ace Young, who is super hot, was at the station. So I met Ace Young... and his super sugary voice... with seven different colors of foundation on my face. I felt so stupid. I was in a store with endless amounts of testers and makeup artists... they could have made me look like a flipping super model! But no... I was weird foundation girl.

Oh no! How embarassing! (PS - was he as hot in real life as he was on TV?)

Yes... yes he is. And he totally sang to me and I totally swooned while thinking "is he singing to me because he's trying to figure out what's wrong with my skin?"

No, he was singing to you because you're beautiful damn it! He was wondering how he could ask for your number. hehehehe (gene would freak if he did!)
what about the birth control story? lol
