Standing on line at the checkout counter has its share of impulse buys, but when I happened to be lodged behind a brittle old check-paying patron, I can’t help but clutch the nearest reading material to pass the time. I am in no way a guru of self-consciousness, but I take pleasure in heightening my own self awareness and all the things around me, so along comes the Stars Without Makeup annual issue featuring the many faces of some of the most glamorous stars that are embedded in our daily lives through the tube, the pads and other viewable media playing devices. After soaking up a few shocking pages (Mila Kunis), I was pretty pepped up by the time it was my turn to pay for my items. Sadly, the mag never made it to the scanner, but the etched memories of some of Hollywood’s finest starlets, stripped down and bare faced, had a distinct clinging effect on my psyche as I smiled and laughed my ass off towards the parking lot.
