About Melissa:

I’m 39 years old. I like to write about excessively bad movies, baseball, and makeup. I tend to prefer artistic and special effects makeup to glam. I reject the beauty industry’s tendency to worship youth. I don’t need to get plastic surgery. I don’t need any procedures. I’ve tried hard enough to get to this age that I don’t feel the need to hide it. That said, you do whatever you want to do. Want three breasts just like in Total Recall? Do it. Life is short.

I’ve had two kidney transplants from living donors due to a genetic disorder. I have severe hearing loss, wear hearing aids, and read lips. I struggle with my health at times. Please, be an organ donor.
