Dream a little dream of me?

December 1, 2010


Blog Guy, I see they just showed the big annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on television.

That was before I started being scared of models.

Excuse me? Scared?

Yeah, haven’t you noticed it? Models aren’t just the vacuous vixen-next-door any longer.

Look at this top photo, from the Victoria’s Secret show. I’ll see that face in my nightmares.

I mentioned the same thing a couple of months ago, too, with this Oktoberfest “model” on the right, who looked like someone out of a Hogarth print.

Gosh, I do see what you mean, but I still think all fashion models are pretty hot.

Yeah? So you won’t mind if I send these chicks your home address and tell them where you hide your key?

Sleep tight.

Mugs! In two of three pics. Not too shabby BG. That chick in the last picture I may not know fashion, but I know what I DON’T like.

I still think Oktoberfest Lady looks like fun.

@Crow – Definitely! She looks way too healthy to be a “model”.

@Spin, you’ve got a point there.

Well, you managed to please some of your commentators, BG… :)
And yeah, when compared to others, Oktoberfest Lady sure is OK… 😀

Third photo could be for the off (way off) Broadway production of Tim Burton’s “The VictoriaFest Before Christmas”…
