the weekly survey of mundane-ness
This post marks the launch of The Weekly Survey of Mundane-ness. Inspired by survey questions being done in morning radio shows, I decided that maybe it would be fun to institutionalize it on my blog. They actually do a daily thing but well, since I'm not a daily blogger... let's do the weekly thing... and every Monday thing at that. Wait... today's a Wednesday. Hmmm. Who cares. It's the launch anyway.

How this works: There are two mundane choices. Choose one. Explain why. Remember, the explanation is just as critical as the choice (because it's the fun part). No right or wrong answers. No judgements. Just let the mundane side of you take over. Sometimes the choice involves a question, sometimes it will be just two things and you can be the one to qualify your choice. This week, we have a survey question:

What do you think men fear more?
The Eyelash Curler

The men, of course, are free to express their sentiments whether bourne out of personal experience or what have you. To start things off, I think it's the eyelash curler. Chips thinks that it's an evolved torture device from the middle ages... especially if it's the metal one. I think the fear comes from not knowing how the hell it happens. So people, what do you think?

    Eyelash curler!!! I agree with Chips, it looks totally barbaric!!! Parang pwedeng gamitin pang torture (sinong Nanay mo??? SINONG NANAY MO!!! SUMAGOT KA O KUKULUTIN KO PILIK MATA MO!!!) Doesn't it hurt? I know if somebody pulls your hair, it's gonna hurt like hell, and I'm guessing it the same with that device... I really don't know, you tell me. :)

    nio: actually it only hurts when you're too sleepy and you can't aim right... such that sometimes the eyelid gets caught... which then gets you wide awake. hehehe.

    i think waxing. but i am basing this on one instance when an altar server pulled one hair from my foot... masakit.

    waxing. anything that involves involuntary yanking i think would freak guys out. especially if it involves areas with hair... hahhaa

    hhmmm waxing cguro. kasi ung eyelash curler, maliit naman ung chance na aaray ka eh. and you can still get away with it by saying u have naturally curly eyelashes or wear a tinted eyeglass. ung waxing, ewan ko lang kung hindi mabading ung mga boys pag may biglang yanking na naganap. at hindi yata mashadong kaaya aya tignan ung legs ng isang machong lalaki na makinis.

    jeff: may bias naman ako sa waxing dahil masochista ata ako. the pain is good... lalo na kung talagang mainit yung wax hehe.

    apester: imagine a brazilian...

    kateh: matagal ko na pinipilit si Chips na try ko sa kanya yung waxing. kahit facial hair. wala lang. gusto ko lang makita kung ano reaksyon nya.

    I absolutely hate things going near my eye. The curler is scary. Whenever I think about it, I get weak - I lose my finger grip.

    I dont know how women can stand it.

    i would say eyelash curler, since i always get the look and then shiver when i start curling and theyr'e around

  • At 12:18 PM, Blogger dezphaire said…

    jayvee: didn't we ever curl your lashes during our Viare days? hehe :)

    mia d: i get that look to. also when i put eyeliner (especially if it's along the lower lashes). it's like this look bordering on disbelief and disgust.

    Today many men are becoming much more conscious about the way they look and it has become common practice and acceptable for men to visit salons these days --not for eyelash curling but for WAXING. Application of soothing tea tree lotion can help the skin recover from waxing. Some men were just challenged of the thought whether it's painful or not. Pero ang pumunta sa salon para magpa curl ng lashes??? hehe sasabihin pa syo "SUNTUKAN NA LANG!"

    Good thing I don't need that curler thing then, coz mine are beyond STRAIGHT GUY CURLED LASHES already (napa-away pa ako dyan one time). I'm thinking of having my eyebrows waxed, though... they are getting heavy again in the middle, and plucking sucks (and at the rate they're growing, tiring as well). Totoo bang three weeks ang tinatagal ng waxing? Baka naman maubos ang bushy brows ko, wag na rin lang!!! Girls get lost in them, eh... hihihihihi (lumakas ang hangin, babagyo ata, nya ha ha ha!!!)

    asked moby and pao ajero last saturday regarding this poll. and they both answered hair waxing. :) un lang.

  • At 12:14 PM, Blogger dezphaire said…

    naomi: maybe i should ask the Let's Face It staff if a guy has ever availed of their lash-perming services.

    nio: i envy your lashes... grrr.

    kateh: hehe ang ganda :) let's have a waxing party. sama si Chips.

    incidentally, i just watched 40 Year Old Virgin. that waxing scene was so hilarious.

    waxing has got to be more painful than the eyelash curler...

    i've never waxed, but got curled once or twice by my jealous cousins (i've got these nice long lashes, it seems) :)

  • At 10:08 AM, Blogger dezphaire said…

    dreaming-neko: why are guys more likely to have nice eyelashes than girls. it's unfair. look at what we have to resort to.

  • At 11:11 AM, Blogger The Blue Sixteenth Note (the dark side...) said…

    Question... do you girls really have to open your mouths when you put eyeliner on yourselves... even when you're curling your lashes??? May kakaiba bang epekto pag buka ang bibig while doing this??? :P Kulit lang. I reposted this blog sa multiply ko

    When will this discusion end???

Sometimes bored. Most of the time oddly alive. Phobic of butterflies. Creatively suppressed. Hungry for coffee and shoes. This is my subconscious talking... at times interrupted by my reality.

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
