Did you gals get enough coffee?

November 27, 2010


Lamar, get in my office, right now! You’re the one who arranged for the dressing room and backstage facilities for the models here at the fashion show, right?

model georgia face 220That’s right, Boss. You think I went overboard?

What amenities did you order?

Jeez, I’ll have to look at my copy of the contract, Boss. Let’s see. A mirror, a table, a metal chair, a fancy, deluxe, top-of-the-line coat rack, a splintered plank floor….

Oh, and one drunken chimpanzee to do hair and make-up, a bucket of red barn paint and a roller. The usual.

I see. And did you get a bathroom for the girls?

Um, hmmm. Silly me! Looks like I forgot to check that box, Boss. Why do you ask?

I’m actually surprised this is not in Krasnoyarsk. I was beginning to think Johnson/Lamar wasn’t able to go anywhere else in the FSU. That, or Reuters only had one functioning camera in that part of the world.

She definitely looks like a candidate for donut therapy.

Actually, that’s a funny story, Dave. I signed off on sending a photographer there because I saw it was in Georgia and I thought, well, you know.

I need to pay more attention next time.

Good one BG! Monkey hairdressers must be big this year. Just finished reading Janet Evanovich’s “Fearless Fourteen,” and there is a bit in the story about a monkey arranging a woman’s hair. Her characters get to stop for doughnuts, too! Saaaay, you and Janet aren’t related, are you?

She is thinking to herself: “Darn it, dressing up as my favorite Dragon Ball-Z character never looks as cool as TV!”

Yeah, BG, I’m guessing that geography is not Lamar’s strong suite either.

Good one @ifly!

Wait a second? Is she wearing … a BRA?!!?

Don’t those Russians know that the standard issue uniform for runway models specifically prohibits bras?!

Man, they are behind the times.

Perhaps those are burn marks on her face from the blow dryer that was used to create that “There’s Something About Mary” style.

I cannot stand the way my Lamar gets booted around on this blog! Hey, he checked his list, ok? Like Santa never forgot anything? (I’ve got stories…) And that shameful misquote: “Hmm silly me”. My Lamar would NEVER say anything so effete. What he said, probably, was, “Zounds,to horse! With alacrity I must forthwith right this wrong!”

@lady – Effete? You used “effete” in a comment?

*backing slowly away so as not to get any taser side effects*

Lady, I shouldn’t give away stuff like this, but keep watching. On Monday or Tuesday you’ll get a look at Lamar at home; a glimpse at the Lamar we seldom see….

@Dave – not only did she use ‘effete’ she also threw in ‘alacrity’ for good measure.

The model in the photo looks like she has a casting call for a revival of Rocky Horror Picture Show.

As for the location of the bathroom – it’s just a jump to the left.

I don’t want to see Lamar doing his “Buffalo Bill” impression. I really really don’t.

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

And Nosmo gets Pop Culture Reference of the Month for one of those last two comments – I’m just not sure which one.
