Daily Progress

Here's another super condensed recap of the past week's worth of dailies! ENJOY!

This is "Ken".

Ken is a really, really good man. Loyal, generous, the most honest guy you'll ever meet. Wouldn't say shit if he had a mouthful!

If he had one vice, it would be that he works too damn hard. No other addiction gets as many mixed reviews as 'workaholism' which makes it hard for those who love him to attempt an intervention. Generous as he is, it's clear that his friends would love nothing more than for him to come out and play a little more often.

He is also a ninja.

"Happy Birthday, Kandrix!" ~ ♥

This is Jacques. He's a real man's man. He's a natural mechanic, a skilled hunter, a gifted carpenter, and can somehow manage to 'make better' things that didn't even need fixing in the first place! He's always happy to help --Service with a Smile -- he's even great with kids. If it weren't for the fact that his favorite food is "sammiches", as he calls them, that he refers to himself in the third person, and that he ends every other sentance with the words "right 'dere", he'd easily be married by now.

"Jacques could really go for a sammich, right 'dere."

This is Becca. She has 5 siblings -- all brothers. She doesn't know it yet, but when she grows up she's going to be a defence attorney.

This is Susan. She's super sweet and a real cutie-pie. But, like many women who seem perfectly healthy and beautiful on the outside, Susan struggles with body image issues. She's saving up for braces...and otoplasty...Botox...and maybe a chin implant. Laser hair removal would be nice... OH! And a tummy tuck!...once she's done having kids, of course! (although she's yet to be pregnant) ;P which case a breast lift might be in order then... Hmmm...Lipo...fillers...brow lift...

This is Candace. She's a Vegas showgirl, and although she doesn't look it, she's 46 years old and just became a grandmother for the second time. She's raising both of her grandchildren because their mother is too into partying right now. Those babies are the light of Candace's life and she just wishes she could retire already, A) so she can spend every single moment with them, and B) she's getting pretty tired of this 'showgirl' act. People think her life is so glamorous, but if they only knew...!

"Rock-A-Billy & Rock-A-Betty"

They are in love :) ...with themselves! :(

This is Trent. He was a total bookworm in high school -- still is! He was bullied almost daily by boys and girls alike -- verbally, and sometimes physically, like having books thrown at him -- but he never said a word.

I'm happy to report that Trent eventually found his voice. Soon after high school, he began recording audio books. And following that, he helped develop the software behind Amazon's Kindle. He was a multi-millionaire by age 27. "Take THAT, 10 year high school reunion!"
