Day 306 - "So I Put My Hands Up"

I'm just going to set the record straight - I am not, nor will I ever be, a fan of Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus, or whatever alias she is going by these days.

I am frustrated, though.  I've been tearing the house apart looking for something that I know I did not forget at Girls State last week, that has to be within the Anderson household, and will be extremely, extremely difficult to replace if I can't find it.   What is missing, you ask?

My eyeshadow palette.  But it's not just any eyeshadow palette - it's from Victoria's Secret, and it's special because it's a) part of a set, b) a part of a limited edition set that has been discontinued, c) the perfect colors for me, and d) it's one of the few pieces of nice, quality make up that I actually own.  Plus, the case is pretty.

You see, I got this eyeshadow palette as a Christmas present along with the rest of the make up set.  I had been enamored with the set since I saw it in Victoria's Secret's Christmas 2009 catalog, and when my mom (aka Santa) picked one up the day after Thanksgiving I was happy.  I don't wear cosmetics that often because I usually am too lazy or don't have the time to put the stuff on, so when I get excited about anything girly - whether it's shampoo, bobby pins, or eyeshadow - it's huge.  After I opened all of the make up on Christmas morning and oohed and aahed at the pretty colors, I told myself that this was going to be strictly for special occasions.  I bought the set its own make up bag and kept it in my room instead of in the bathroom with my sisters' stuff.

Well, I packed that same bag when I was getting ready to leave for Girls State because the program requires dressing up a number of times, and if I were to be the governor's floor mother again or be hob-knobbing with some VIPs in the world of Ohio and national politics, I wanted to look presentable.  I used my eyeshadow, I packed it up at the end of the week, and brought it home.  Before I left, I even made sure that there was absolutely nothing left in my dorm room.

And now I can't find that eyeshadow to save my life.

Erin and Katie have been sitting around today watching me go crazy trying to find it.  "What's the big deal," Erin said at one point.  "It's not like you wear make up anyway.  Why are you so upset over something you never use?"

Well, here's why:
1. My mother (aka Santa) spent quite a bit of money on it given that it is eyeshadow.  Money that could have been spent on something else.
2. I don't own much make up, so when something does go missing, I may not have anything to back it up.
3. Again, it's not available for sale anymore, unless I can find one on eBay, which is a little sketchy sanitation-wise.
4. The principle: it's mine, and I would like it back.

This may be a random post, but I felt like I needed to get this off my chest.  I mean, I would like to look nice when I do actually leave the house, and nice make up is expensive.  I'm just hoping one of my sisters isn't hiding it for fun - then, there may be some tears.
