18 Reasons to Unleash Your Inner Babe

That's 18 days and counting until November 30th rolls around and NaNoWriMo participants everywhere fall down in an exhausted heap of novelitis.
After that, we can all unleash our inner babes.
Or the male version of whatever that is.

So, for the next 18 days I will post reasons - guaranteed to make no sense - as I count down the days. Hopefully, the word count will go UP as I finish the rough draft of my novel. With regard to a previous inquiry - Paul wrote to say "I really need to know what a pencil skirt is."

A pencil skirt, Paul, is a retro curve-hugging knee-length preferably black clingy skirt with a slit usually in the front. It tapers to a narrow hem so that it impedes the wearer's stride. Hence, pencil skirt. Think brainy Lois Lane with a bit of inner babe wanting to escape. I use the term to hopefully draw attention to a mental image of a sassy reporter - my "character" Mimi Pencil Skirt. I shall retire mine until NaNo is over.

18 Ways to Unleash Your Inner Babe on December 1, 2006:

1. Buy new red pumps
2. Take your significant other to Victoria's Secret (I hope my mother isn't reading this)

3. Bring the red pumps with you to Victoria's Secret. Color matching is crucial.
4. Find a pinstripe pencil skirt at the mall

5. Chew seductively on your pencil wearing your pencil skirt
(no, NaNos...the pencil is not wearing the pencil skirt but you can't say that the other way around because then I'd be chewing on my skirt and that's just not cool)

6. Wear your new ensemble to the dentist while he fixes your tooth

7. Accidentally trip and fall in front of a cute guy wearing your pencil skirt (No, silly. The guy is not wearing the skirt)

8. Bat your eyelashes and explain you're so clumsy because you've been writing a novel for 30 days and you can't see. It will be a very short interaction but who really cares.

9. Go dancing by yourself. In the kitchen.

10. Light candles

11. Make up for all that exercise you missed.

12. Do TaeBo in your pencil skirt. The kicks might be a little tricky but can you think of anything sexier??

13. Flirt with the ambulance driver.
(make sure the pumps match the ambulance..)

14. Go out dancing with your girlfriends or have a drink with your guy friends. No one will mind that your leg cast doesn't match your skirt.

15. Make pouty faces in the mirror

16. Place an online order for a strawberry red collagen lip-enhancer.

17. Stop crying about the red pumps. They look just fine slipped over your toe boot. No one likes a crybaby.

18. Practice answering to "Yo Babe"

Hahaha! Doing taebo in a pencil skirt sounds very interesting! Maybe even do it by candlelight in the kitchen. But not with the new red pumps, okay?

Mimi. I've been away for a few days and upon my return I find that that Gem has written a huge (and useful!) endorsement of sex and now you've become a little minx! What did I miss?

Christine said...

That's a great Inner Babe photo! I have two pencil skirts (one sweater, both black) and red pumps~ plus a red car, red coat, and red purse!
ANd of course, red lipstick, natch!

Lizza...I tried it last night. Ouch.

Mimi Lenox said...

Bazza...I apologize for most unQueen-like behavior. Mims was having a moment.

Mimi Lenox said...

Christine...You ARE a babe!

madd said...

Hey go girl..uhm..Babe..:) I'll go along with Christine..took a fun little phyc test and I am a shiny new Red I do think you need to add a wonderful massage to help release that inner Babe..take care, keep the words counting..m

Tom Atkins said...

a great laugh! But I don't think there is anything quite like the male equivelant to the inner babe. But then, most women are too smart to fall for that whole routine, whilst us guys on the other hand....


Mimi Lenox said...

MADD....I want to be a shiny red sportscar too! I think I'll take that test. And yes, a massage sounds heavenly.

Mimi Lenox said...

Guys are love smart, too, Tom. We just prefer to make you believe you're not. What fun would red pumps be otherwise??!

Jan said...

Try these.....
buy a sexy red bra at Victoria's Secret, never mind whether or not it fits, you won't actually have to do more than swing it on your fingers while standing in front of your SO naked!

Mimi Lenox said...

Aren't you that mild-mannered woman who knits shawls? You vixen you.

Dan said...

Take your significant other to Victoria's Secret.

Oh yeah! Finally a suggestion I can relate to! ;)

Ok.. when I first read the title for this post I thought it said "18 Reasons to Unleash Your Inner Bra." Made NO sense whatsoever! :)
