All Eyez on Me

Things have been extremely busy for me this New Year.

I’ve had dozens of speaking engagements, book tour events, communion services, and photo shoots. It’s been exhausting.

The worst part is that my complexion is beginning to suffer. The dark circles around my eyes are getting worse. I’ve started using a concealer, but it doesn’t seem to be working.

One of my Cardinals suggested that I rub almond oil and mint leaves over the dark circles. Another Cardinal told me to massage powdered Vitamin E around my eyes.

I really need to start taking better care of myself.

Dark circles are a good thing. You look like you have been spending hours in prayer, weeping over the lost and agonizing over those with dire troubles.
Don't cover up those dark circles, or you'll look like you sleep without a care in the world while the whole world goes to sh-t!

Jaime Dawn has a good point. I think you should walk around dabbing at your forehead with a hankie, too. Act like you're really suffering on behalf of the masses.

I've got dark circles to from a whole runnin' amok adventure of what I'm still trying to figure out. Maybe Pope can help me. Let me know if you get a fix for those eyes. And what the f... is up with the return of the pink panther, later...

You need better lighting and a splash of color on your vestments.

You're not getting any younger, your holy popeness, sir. It's time to clean up your act!

Sorry to say it, but the circles are starting to look a bit Evil Emperor from Star Wars.
You're not going over to the dark side, are you?

Your Holiness,
I have to agree with sinner, you need better light, try some lighting that is soft and facing in different directions.

Your Holiness,

Will you be posting about the new TV show The Book of Daniel?

Why don't you tell everyone that you're going to do some fasting, deep prayer and meditation. Then sneak into your room with some snacks and a good book (stay away from the Da Vinci code - wait for the movie). You can relax, take a nap, eat some chips... whatever. The eyes will clear up in no time.

Maybe you should go in for a day lift? I hear they can do wonders.

Try some neutrogena facial peel. It works wonders.
Maybe if you stop buying prada shoes, you can afford a better peel.

Your Holiness, being a bookworm myself I know the temptation to sit up all night reading, but you're going to have to take it easy on your eyes. Somebody's going to have to record all those weighty tomes you like on tape as audio books. Then you can put cucumber on your eyes (or try the Cardinals' recommendations, let us know how they work!) and put your headset on and listen. Also, get some sleep. The body is the temple, ya know. Peace out!

Holy Father,
Please don't change a thing,the dark circles under your eyes remind the masses of the pressures of being our Holy Father.I would suggest though that you take a weekend for yourself,get out and see a movie and have a good time,we will still be here when you get back ;)Until next time...keep on rocking in the free world.(((you)))
