Conversations With My Mirror

Conversation 1
Damn, you look good!
Really??
Yeah, you look good under that lighting.
Hmm, now that you mention it, I do look quite nice…
Pity you’re at home, though. Who’s gonna appreciate that?
Yeah. Why can’t I look good like this when I’m outside?

Conversation 2
Oh my god, you look horrendous.
Tell me something I don’t know… πŸ™„
Well, I can’t help it. It’s just too horrendous not to mention. It’s amazing you can look like this. I can’t believe all those guys who used to like you actually like this.
Fuck off.
*shrugs* It’s the truth. You know it.

Conversation 3
You know, you’re not really all that bad-looking.
Humf.
No wonder you hate taking pictures. They don’t look like how you look now most of the time!
Humf.
Really. On your own you look half-decent. It’s only when you’re with other girls that your plainness is really telling.

I mean, I’ve seen uglier girls than you having boyfriends or getting pregnant, so god knows it’s not that you’re too ugly to have a boyfriend.
………………
You could definitely lose a few pounds, of course. I’m sure that will help.
I think I should break this mirror. That would be a great start to my self-esteem!

What’s your conversation like?

Comments on: "Conversations With My Mirror" (29)

  1. My mirror just cracks when I look into it… πŸ˜€

    sulz: ha ha, hence the name of your blog. πŸ˜‰ i’m sure your significant other begs to differ! πŸ˜›

  2. I have even stopped looking into a mirror myself! πŸ™‚ Others don’t usually comment ever, if they do it goes..oh u lost weight! but loads more to go I suppose…or you have become dark! Too much of sun?!

    sulz: losing weight? well, it could either be a compliment or bad news (if you stand to lose a few pounds like me, then it is but if you’re those who is naturally thin, i don’t think that’s comforting to hear!). as for getting dark, isn’t that what all the caucasians wanna get? πŸ˜‰ it’s always strange like caucasians want tans and asians want to be as fair!

  3. Hey Hi,
    I found your blog in my search and thought that you can help participate in the Life survey of what’s ultimate aim of Life.

    Please do visit my blog and participate, Thanks a lot

  4. Mirror: Damn, you look good — why don’t you have a girlfriend again?

    Me: I have high standards.

    sulz: haha… ie. too fussy huh? πŸ˜‰ i don’t even have the opportunity to be choosy, that’s how attractive i am. πŸ™„

  5. Either something like, Mirror: you’re fat and weird-looking, freak-child.

    Me: … I am?

    Mirror: yeah! Curl up and die, loser!

    Me: … as I’m evidently too hideous to live, all right… *sob*

    Or, there’s Mirror: you’re fat and weird-looking, freak-child!

    Me: you talk a load of shit sometimes. I know I’m not fat. I’m not that weird-looking, either… I just occasionally appear to be Chinese.

    Or there’s generally positive days. What fun it is to be female… πŸ˜‰

    Suzy x

    sulz: omg, your mirror is scary! but you are tough enough to handle it, so it seems. πŸ˜‰ do you really look chinese sometimes? that’s nice! chinese girls are hot these days. πŸ˜‰

  6. Hahahahaha! Although, probably not that funny if your mirror means what it says! I don’t really talk to my mirror much these days, as I know I’m fine, whereas my mirror is snarky. I just make sure my hair is combed and my clothes are on, and walk out the door—what else?
    You funny when you say “having boyfriends or getting pregnant”. Are you supposed to pick one or the other?

    sulz: those are just the pg-rated conversations! well, it just means that they have significant others, that’s all! at least, that’s the assumption. 😳

  7. The other day I realised that even though sometimes I look hot, I also don’t look hot when I’m pulling silly faces….I do that most of the time (my face is quite elastic and I enjoy fooling around with it).
    So that’s a worry. Not that I’ll stop.

    But yeah, I tend to veer between conversation one and conversation three. I might think of more later (next time I’ve got a mirror to hand).

    I’ve been thinking of getting a mirror in my room so I get more used to being positive. I don’t know why I think that’ll work, but I hope so.

    Maybe.

    I’m rambling.

    sulz: so don’t do that so often by yourself. πŸ˜‰ i’m sure your friends appreciate the silly faces better!

    it depends on how you use the mirror, i guess. a gun can be as good or as bad as the owner’s intention!

    you always do. πŸ™‚ (said affectionately)

  8. Mirror: Such swollen eyes. People would think u cried all night.

    Me: Huh. u know its due to waking up so early in morning.

    Mirror: Getting lil plump are we?

    Me: No I’m constant.

    My mirror doesnt talk much. I dont let it πŸ™‚

    sulz: you sure show your mirror who’s the boss! πŸ˜€

  9. For the record, the conversation just five seconds ago consisted of ‘damn you’re sexy’ and then running away so that nothing more was said.

    The interesting thing being that I’m not sure who said it. Still, it’s a good start to the day.

    sulz: it was you who said it, i just know it! πŸ™‚ we all have a little narcissistic streak in all of us. hence the blog. πŸ˜€

  10. Mine says: Get a bloody haircut! πŸ™‚

    (ps, you can actually see what my mirror sees if you like at this post: http://backandtothefuture.wordpress.com/2008/09/10/chest-reduction-surgery-and-a-picture-of-me/)

    sulz: well, what are you doing reading this?? πŸ˜†

    thanks, i’m always curious to see a picture of the blogger!

  11. Mirror: You’re looking good again today.

    Me: I know that. I’m a bloke.

    Mirror: Beard’s getting a little bushy, isn’t it? You know Grizzly
    Adams lookalikes get no two-person sex in this house.

    Me: Maybe this time she’ll change her mind.

    Mirror: Did you see that pig fly past the window just then?

    sulz: hah, a mirror with a snarky sense of humour! wonder where did it get that from? πŸ˜‰

  12. Breaking mirror is a great idea… I think will help us all πŸ™‚

    sulz: and risk getting spinach stuck to my teeth without me knowing? gasp!

  13. Me an Asian…so getting dark is definitely a no no.Well personally I don’t bother πŸ™‚ Just getting tanned in patches that bothers me πŸ˜€ Why can’t sun tan me evenly like those tanning salons?!?!?
    Very true about the Caucasian thing though. Had a white friend who got tanned and came telling me she was my colour with glee in her eyes. And my Asian friend next to me cribbed why can’t I be as fair as her!! And there I was in between thinking why do these women think so? They are beautiful as they are!
    About the weight, I still have lots of weight to lose 😦 to get to my ideal weight.

    sulz: tell me about it! i wore a lot of racerback tank tops in macau, and i was out and about most of the time. i came back from disneyland with a noticeable tan, but it’s fading now, haha.

    we’re in the same boat, apar. i’m currently into peanut butter with chocolate spread, mmmf. not a thin-wannabe’s best health option!

  14. I am so confused trying to find your picture…

    sulz: haha, i didn’t think you would! here are some clues: the post is in year 2006, and the day is a significant day all around the world, regardless of race and religion. πŸ˜‰ if that fails, send me an e-mail and i’ll pass the password. πŸ™‚

  15. me: who is that?
    mirror: been wondering myself…what happened to you
    me: I grew up?
    mirror: no just got old

    Hammer to mirror…

    me: so did you, time for a new mirror I think..

    lol, sulz, your post tickled me! I look forward to your blog each day as I never know what I may find next.

    sulz: haha, let’s hope the new mirror doesn’t come a new attitude too. πŸ˜›

    thanks! i can be even more random in person. πŸ˜€

  16. When I smile my eyes slant up and in photos I end up looking like I got the Caucasian hair and eye colours but the Chinese eyes and face. So I don’t really look that Chinese. Just enough for people to look at my pictures twice in surprise. πŸ™‚

    Suzy x

    sulz: even better, you have that exotic pan-asian look going on, it sounds like! they look that sort of look in modelling, you know? πŸ˜‰

  17. I don’t talk to my mirror. If I did, I imagine it would go a bit like this:

    Me: Well, hello there handsome.
    Mirror: Are you hitting on me, ugly??
    Me: No! I was just saying… I think I look… well, OK today.
    Mirror: OK? You look hideous!
    Me: Who asked your opinion? Bah, looks aren’t important anyway.
    Mirror: Yeah, you keep telling yourself that, sunshine.

    sulz: well, i don’t either! we communicate via esp. πŸ˜†

    gosh, your mirror is very um, in your face? hahaha, sorry, bad joke. πŸ˜€

  18. I love the Conversations With My Mirror and yes I have done similar.
    We usually talk about how many grey hairs my mirror has, it’s only jealous because I have none.
    Well that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    sulz: hahaha, that’s funny! blame it on the mirror, huh? πŸ˜‰

  19. @ Sulz: I’m picky, yeah, but I just haven’t found someone that seems right for me yet, someone who I have utter and complete confidence in, someone who I don’t have to apologize for — and it kills me.

    sulz: what you’re looking for isn’t instantaneous, it’s only proven over time… if given the chance. πŸ™‚ good luck, all the same!

  20. I guess I would have to use the old Mac Davis song to express my mirror escapades:

    Oh Lord its hard to be humble
    When you’re perfect in every way
    I can’t wait to look in the mirror
    I get better looking each day

    To know me is to love me
    I must be a hell of a man
    Oh Lord its hard to be humble
    But I’m doing the best that I can.

    sulz: rotflmao!! perfect song.

  21. First I was ‘unconventionally pretty’ (or something) and now I could be an exotic model.

    Is it any wonder I love commenting your blog? πŸ˜‰

    Suzy x

    sulz: well, i have a pretty wild imagination… πŸ˜€ but most important is that you are pretty inside, you know? πŸ™‚

  22. Mirror: You know, I’ve seen your mother and looking at how good-looking she is, its funny how you turned out like this.

    Me: Erm, maybe I went after my father.

    Mirror: Do you even have an idea who your father is?

    Me: Er, no. I should ask mom.

    So, er, who is it then, mom? πŸ˜›

    sulz: son, sit down. first, i’m not good-looking. second, do you know what an adoption is…

    πŸ˜†

  23. Haha reading this was fun. The blog AND the posts.

    I have terrible conversations with my head as you have read in my blog probably, but, interestingly, I kinda like mirrors. I have a few of them, a hand mirror I keep near my bed… I don’t do it for the reasons you would think either (mirror mirror on the wall… etc). I think I like playing with it, I make faces and stick my tongue out at it to see how it looks; after a while, my face stops making sense and it’s just a bunch of lines and colors. I like when that happens. Face or body I’m rather comfortable with it. I love seeing the lines in my body, even the ones you would consider ugly. I like detailing every bit. I think if I wasn’t so shy and in general bad at anything involving people looking at me too much, I would make a good actress or model, since I like using my body for something, and I’m not scared of how it would look like here or there. Just this afternoon I was playing with make up because I needed to take my passport picture, but before I went for the passport look, I played around with the make up. I like doing that, now passerbys would think I’m very strange. But there was nobody πŸ˜› Two nights ago I discovered some cellulite behind my waist. It was an object of interest rather than repulsion. And I have a belly… I think the belly is funny. And my boobs are so small I could pass for a young boy if I wanted to, but with the right bra I could also make a sexy girl. There’s just so many fun things about it… I think I like having a body to play with. For me that’s what the body is for… to have fun. I like knowing that there are girls who are three million times hotter than I am who don’t like themselves in the mirror. It reminds me that the way you see yourself in there is not directly associated with how you really look.

    Now, before you consider me the queen of self acceptance and love, I have lots of problems with my brain. It attacks itself very often, so you know, it’s never perfect.

    sulz: i think you’d make a good sex partner… not with me, of course!! i’m not inclined that way, haha.

    sometimes i like what i see in the mirror and sometimes not. strangely, i always like to see myself when i come home from somewhere than seeing myself before i go off somewhere.

    interesting that you see yourself in a pretty un-normal way! well, you’re pretty weird to begin with. :mrgreen:

  24. Asuka,
    You’re really summing up a lot of the way I feel about my body (sometimes). It’s that thing about lines and shapes and twisting and playing with them. You’re also making me miss my ex (I almost wrote mix my ess there) as that’s one of the things I love about being in bed all nude and with someone. Sure the sex bit’s fun, but it’s more fun just lying finding comfortable places and exploring the interrelations by TWO WHOLE SETS of all those lines and curves and shapes and bubbles and textures and everything.

    It all depends on how self conscious I’m feeling. If I’m thinking about what others think of me, then it’s often a problem. If I’m thinking I’m going to be judged, then I’m scared. But in and of myself, I actually love my body loads, particularly the fun we can have together (not like that…that’s another story entirely, and probably best kept tom my own blog, if at all).

    I’d quite like to spend some time with a professional photographer getting nude shots (preferably with someone else to play with). Not in a porny or even ‘erotica’ type way, but more in an abstract art kinda way. Finding odd shapes and angles and juxtaposing them to look at old structures in a new light. I always thought there was the possibility of making some wondrous art if you could sidestep the titilative taboo of arousal (as soon as someone looks at something like that, it tends to lose all other meaning, and that’s a bit crap).

    Am I making sense, or just rambling? Sorry for hijacking Sulz.

    sulz: sigh, when will you keep apologising! you know i don’t care if you go off-tangent a bit. anyway, nessa has practically offered to be said partner for this nude project, and i’m offering my services to be art director, free of charge. where can we get a photographer, now? πŸ˜†

    i hope the next guy i like and likes me back thinks the way you do! πŸ™‚

  25. I’d quite like to spend some time with a professional photographer getting nude shots (preferably with someone else to play with). Not in a porny or even β€˜erotica’ type way, but more in an abstract art kinda way. Finding odd shapes and angles and juxtaposing them to look at old structures in a new light.

    Yes! I want to do something like this! The body can be fun and in a entirely different way that doesn’t involve anything sexual. I don’t mean the sexual part is not fun… but there’s so much more to it. πŸ™‚

    sulz: you should get together with alabaster and do that! i’ll be the art director. :mrgreen:

  26. What with the ocean between, that’ll probably require a VERY wide angled lens.

    sulz: or maybe just webcams and a teleconference? πŸ˜‰ haha, now that’s pervy.

  27. Teleconference? That would keep each art form confined to its own place, no juxtaposition.

    You can let your imagination fly sulz.

    sulz: there’s always photoshop. πŸ˜€

  28. I have this idea that every mirror is different when you look at it. or maybe it’s because of the lighting? haha. anyway, we have 4 mirror at home,one in each room upstairs. Before leaving for work, i have this bad habit of visiting every mirror to check on my appearance. after the visits, i will go back to my room…take another small mirror and look at myself from both sides and also from the back πŸ˜›

    sulz: wah liow, must see yourself in all four mirrors? no wonder i have to wait for you a while whenever i go pick up you for shopping. πŸ˜€

  29. […] I’m stealing today’s idea directly from Sulz’s post of two weeks ago. […]
