Do you like your lips? I know that's an odd question, but I thought of it the other day when I was looking at some celebrity pictures online. Click here to see what I mean. I don't follow celebrities around much. I barely watch TV and I rarely go to the movies, but every now and then I'll look online to see what people are up to. This deal with celebrities wanting bigger lips is just the weirdest thing to me. I don't think I've seen one that makes them look better or more sexy. Most of the time, they look stupid or like something went horribly wrong. Why would anyone want to do that to themselves? I can understand other forms of cosmetic surgery, but just not the lip thing. Last fall we went to Yellowstone and I took a picture of a raven inside the Grizzly Wolf Discovery Center. I'm not sure what he had picked up, but when he turned around, he looked like he had great big kissy lips. I nicknamed him the Angelina Joliet Raven ...

I have thin lips and Rick has full lips. I suppose between the two of us, we have the lip thing covered. I don't think I'd want fuller lips myself. Do you remember those wax candy lips? I remember when those first came out in the 70s. I bought so many of those, including the ones with fangs. Those were fun. If you want a laugh, type in "wax lips" in your search engine and look at some of the pictures that come up. Some are hilarious. Some, however, look more like what these celebrities are doing to themselves. I don't know -- this just isn't my thing. If it's yours, well, I hope I haven't insulted you. I was just noticing that some celebrities have done this with less than attractive results. And all this talk of lips, of course, makes me think of this ...


  1. I have skinny worm lips, my husband has large lips - our kids have the best of both worlds ;) their lips are (like Goldilocks said) just right.

  2. My lips are probably one of the few things I like about myself. I have full ones.

    I've never understood celebrities who plump their lips via injection. It's always obvious and looks ridiculous. If you weren't born with them, then they'll never look right because your face wasn't designed to have them in the first place.


  3. I love that Larry song!
    And I love my lips, too!
    It's funny that you said injections because last night at my reunion a classmate's husband asked her if I injected my lips! She said NO! Kelly's had those full lips all her life!
    I didn't like it when I was a kid, but now that I wear lipstick occasionally, I do like my lips!

  4. I have skinny lips ,which I dislike,but would NEVER get them injected. People who do, are,in my opinion,pathetic and too full of themselves.Everyone can tell they're fake. Cute Larry song!


  5. I love that Larry song too! We sing it all the time at home.

    I like my lips. They're not big but they're full. Hubby loves them. I guess that's what really maters! LOL.

    BTW, you have very nice lips! XOXO

  6. I've always hated my full lips. Can't imagine why anyone would want them.

  7. Mine are fine, I have no problems with them. Love that Larry song.


  8. I used to love my lips (wow, that sounds weird!) lol But when I got pregnant (and ever since - damn hormones) I have gotten literally tons of cold sores. All of which have left their mark- either a small scar or changed the shape of my lips. Not pretty - not totally scary or even noticeable by anyone else but I notice it and it drives me nuts. (sniff, wallow) Thanks for bringing up a painful topic Rena. :)
