Didn't we warn you Bitches about this, years ago?

Book Report

Remember the The 2016 Infomaniac Book Challenge?



No, we're not doing a 2018 Book Challenge just as we didn't do a 2017 Book Challenge.

But we here at Infomaniac would like to know if you read any interesting books this year. And what are you currently reading?

At the moment, The Mistress is reading this...



... which is a coincidence because Charles Manson has finally gone to hell.

Sleep - It's Wonderful!

Or so I've been told.

[via]

The Mistress is experimenting with a variety of sleep techniques.

Regular posting will resume sometime on Monday if The Mistress gets a good night's sleep, for a change.

While The Mistress is sleeping, do NOT look through her diaries.

November is Wake to Music Month

Since November is Wake to Music Month...

(click to enlarge)


We here at Infomaniac want to know...

Do you Bitches wake up to music?
If not, how do you wake up? An alarm clock of another sort? An app? Someone vigorously shaking you? You awake naturally? The crow of the cock?

Looks like the merriment extends through December too...

NOTE: Infomaniac Bitch, Eroswings has published an interesting piece on classical music over at Eros Den. He's started a new series called "The Sound of Music" and it's worth checking out.

Facial Fitness

With The Mistress injured, it seemed that keeping fit was futile, aside from shoulder shrugs and stretches. Enter, this album...


FACIAL EXERCISES!

As it says on the cover, "Milady can now create Beauty, Glamour and Personality with her Holiday Magic Informative Cosmetics FACIAL EXERCISES and massage routines for skin beauty that help hold back the signs & lines of age."

The album is narrated by the accomplished Hollywood makeup artist and host of The Ern Westmore Hollywood Glamour Show, Ernest Henry "Ern" Westmore...

Ern was from a family of legendary makeup artists and his father, George Westmore was Winston Churchill's barber. Ern, considered the most talented of the Westmore Brothers, worked at RKO, 20th Century-Fox, Warner Brothers, and other film studios.

 And later in life...

Unfortunately, Ern was forced to leave Warner Brothers due to chronic alcoholism. He also "struggled in his personal life due to his vices, having been married four times." Ern died of a heart attack in 1967.

But before his demise, Ern left Hollywood to become spokesperson for the door-to-door Holiday Magic cosmetics company (masterminds of the Facial Exercises album.)


"I'm going door to door to make you this incredible offer!"

Several years after Ern's death, Holiday Magic found itself in hot water for being one of the largest pyramid schemes of all time, defrauding investors of millions of dollars.


So, where was I? Oh yes, the FACIAL EXERCISES...

If you're bursting to do the above illustrated exercises along with me (and Ern) click here to listen. Then turn your record over to hear more.



Ern promises that regardless as to whether you're young, middle-aged, or ON THE WRONG SIDE OF FIFTY, you can become a far more attractive person than you ever dreamed possible.

As well as guiding us through FACIAL EXERCISES, Ern spends considerable time extolling the virtues of such Holiday Magic cosmetic products as:

Strawberry Frappé Cleansing Cream
Fruit Tang Skin Toner
Papaya Dew Moisture Cream
Mint Ice with Honey & Almonds
Lemon Delight Eye & Throat Oil
Avocado Hand Cream
Banana Body Lotion



The infomercial portion of this album only served to make me hungry, thus piling on more pounds that I'm sure facial exercises alone cannot correct.

What about you, Bitches? Have you ever tried facial exercises? Or have you tried keeping fit by listening to an exercise album?

Be Careful What You Wish For

In a previous post, The Mistress said her idea of a perfect weekend was staying in bed. Well, her wish was granted...

(click to enlarge)

An injury on Friday confined The Mistress to her bed for the past several days. The upside, as you can see, is that she was able to tackle the stack of books at her bedside.

How about you, Bitches? Have you ever wished for something and had it come true, only to discover that it wasn't as good as what you expected?
