Diehard Beauty

It’s 35 degrees with a windchill factor of about 10, as I walk to La La Nails to get my toes done, wearing tights and thongs.

I may get pneumonia, but boy, will my feet look great.

I’ll be on my deathbed having my nails done, some little woman named Ming asking ,

“What cula?”

Susannah’s last words?

Pennsylvania Pink.

At my worst moment, I’m coiffing, tears streaming down my face, getting a bikini wax.  I mean, what a better time then when you’re about to stick your head in the oven.

Like my pal Camille says, “If I’m going to commit suicide, I need to lose 5 pounds first.”

Reminds me of that Lucy episode when, she and Ethel might get arrested for stealing John Wayne’s footprints from Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, remembering she has a hair appointment.

Ricky says, “How can you think about your hair at a time like this? Mira que tiene cosa. Lucy, you got some splainin to do.”

Lucy says, “If I’m going to jail, I’m not going as a frowsy redhead.”

See, I really get that.

It doesn’t much matter what’s going on in my life, I’m always going to be cleaned, pressed and polished, because like my mother, that great Italian sage with excess cleavage, taught me, ya just never know what’s around the corner.

Could be big…:)



About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.

  2. My toenails go into hibernation from October to April. They are relaxing in my socks inside winter shoes thinking about a trip to islands.

    Pennsylvania pink nails on blue toes against the white snow sounds a pretty picture. Remember to thaw slowly. 😉

    Ha ha, Susannah! A gal after my own heart. I’ve always said that I’m willing to suffer for fashion rather than slump around comfortably. Before my Pookie and I each decided to be cremated, I made my two much younger sisters promise to oversee my makeup and hair preparations for the casket. No way was I going out with bad hair or makeup!

  7. That’s planning for the worst case scenario. It sounds like an Indian movie I saw once where the main characters watch a woman put on makeup then walk into the ocean to try to kill herself. She said she wanted to look pretty for when her body was on the news. 🙂
