Doll! Love your new squaredo!

January 29, 2009

Blog Guy, I’m off to France tonight, and I know how fashion-conscious they are over there. Any beauty tips for moi?

Well, I hope your squaredresser gave you a good squarecut for the trip.

Squarecut? You mean a haircut?

Oh, I was afraid of this. Where haveĀ  you been, girlfriend? The very latest in chic is to have your hair modeled around a geometric frame, like these models at the Paris Haute Couture show.

Oh no! Nobody told me! Now it’s too late!

Calm down. Fortunately, you have an overnight flight to correct the situation.

You need to bring an empty tangerine crate, four wire coat hangers, a large bottle of Elmer’s Glue and a can of squarespray…

Blog guy — the crime here has nothing to do with the hair — WHO DID THE CROPPING ON THESE SHOTS?

It appears that, quite likely, no one will ever notice what these ladies’ hair looks like. We want to see the dress – esp on the second one….

Well, at least if you forget to do your hair, you can just clip a Native American Mandala to the back of your head and you’re good to go!

I think you mean a “dreamcatcher.” A mandala is a totally different thing.

Oops! Yes, I mean a dreamcatcher! Curses, Bob! If you’re not going to edit my comments, I’m clearly not paying you enough!

OMG! And I didn’t even comment on that one. Looks like I can look forward to a little coal in December… Mea culpa!
