I am the type of person who is completely obsessed with my hobbies. The problem with being really dedicated to ones hobbies is that I can really only do one or two at a time. I have many interests, but the one that’s really stuck with me is my interest in people. How they act, what they look like, how they live….it intrigues me. The most interesting people are the ones that are passionate, even if their passion leads them to make decisions that are odd or even down right wrong. I am also a voracious reader. Combine those two interests and what do you get? A girl that has read way too much about serial killers and cult leaders. That’s me! Those two interests have lead me into a world that the average person wouldn’t expect, and indeed, doesn’t even know exists. The world of Mary Kay.
No, not THAT Mary Kay!!
Yeah, there she is! Mary Kay Ash, the creator of the most fabulous cosmetics company for old ladies in the free world!! That’s what most people think, right? Some people who are marginally good at trivia may know about the pink cadillacs. For most everyone in the world, Mary Kay is barely a *blip* on the radar screen of life, but for others, it IS their life. Most of those people are actually in Mary Kay. They sell the make up and go to the meetings. Then there are the others. Some of them used to be in Mary Kay and some of them haven’t. What they share is their absolute hatred of everything Mary Kay.
I don’t know how long these two factions have been at each others throats. It may have been a battle as old as the Crusades for all I know. I just found out about it a few months ago. Just like everything else, the battle has gone to the blogs. Obviously this is a more recent development. It has given a voice to tens of hundreds of women who care about Mary Kay. Their voices cry out, and usually they are shrill and filled with bitterness. The two sides are locked in a battle of good and evil. Sometimes it’s hard to tell which is which.
So I come to the reason I started this particular blog. Each side has numerous blogs in which to spew their venom. The problem is that the blog owners are totally biased one way or the other. If an opposing opinion is given it is deleted or edited. Sometimes the person may be *ahem* banned from the blog. OH NO!! On my blog, both sides are welcome to join in. Neither side will be edited. No one will be banned. In short, I’ve created a blog that will hopefully attract the crazies to a fight….
TO THE DEATH!
I’m just kidding, but thick skins are a requirement you little weepy bitches! Come and say your piece with no worries, but be ready to be challenged.
And because I have a sick sense of humor and an outlet in which to share it, I’ll be throwing some random crap in there too.
