Ageless Liz

Last night when Liz, Steve and Eileen and / or maybe Tracey (I think, I was working on what ended up being 3 glasses of chateauneuf-du-pape) were chatting in the Streetcars office about Liz possibly going to speed dating and someone made mention that Liz was 47.

Now, does anyone out there really think that Liz is 47? I just looked this up quickly on imdb, and it says that Beverly Callard (the actress who plays Liz) was born in 1957 and could only then be 48 or 49... I SHUDDER to think I will look like Liz in 10 years.

Readers, do you think Liz realistically looks 47, 48 or 49? I think she looks much older due to the state of her skin.

Liz looks like a 47 year old who smokes and drinks a fair bit. She's not exactly into organic food and yoga, is she?

And has had a lot of sun, I imagine? Like, her neck was all chicken wattles... Her hair is totally fried. Her lips are think strips of microflesh that almost point directly into her mouth. Sorry guys, it's Friday and I'm feeling particularly vain and foolish today.

"think strips" = "thin strips".
I am hungover.
MJ, hug me!!!!!

I try to look away when Liz is on the screen lest I am tempted to pluck my eyes out with a fork, especially when she is wearing one of her skimpy outfits. She looks on the wrong side of 50 to me, ridden hard and put away wet. Of course the porn MJ posted this morning had the same effect on me...

Big hugs all round for Betty. And Papasmurf, I'll post some female Corrie totty just for you in the near future to make up for the Karl porn.

Jacqueline sees Liz and immediately gives up smoking.

Liz and Jim were looking a tad geriatic last night...especially when you see the 1995 McDonald clan earlier in the day.

I've seen worse looking 47 year old women, but i think the point is that Liz has had a rough life, smoking heavily, drinking heavily, stress of having a bruiser for a hubby.

I admit the cleavage usually gets my attention

I occassionally volunteer at a homeless shelter.

Most 47 year old women there turn out to be 32.

I am not talking about her character / Corrie persona / very special Liz look, I am talking about what I see on my HDTV, which is a beat looking woman who looks the wrong side of 50 fo shizzle.

Unlike Liz, gobetty is a feast for the eyes indeed...wink wink hee hee

GoBetty said...

Ha! It's a pic of Britney Spears. Long story short of why I made this my thumbnail image, I have the dress she's wearing but think I look better in it.

Can I just point out one thing that's really sure to make us cringe?

Liz... speeddating...
