Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, I’m dating a fashion model…
Hey, that must be neat.
It is, but I worry. She eats so little, and sometimes a raisin or a pea will go down the wrong way and she starts to choke.
So I figure I should learn that lifesaving Heimlich Maneuver.
Okay, first, you don’t want to use the standard Heimlich on her. You need the Size Zero Heimlich.
I didn’t know there was another one.
Yes. The normal Heimlich would never work on today’s slender, wispy models. You’d break them in half like a twig.
This photo shows the one developed for models and used at fashion shows around the world.
This was a very good month for the blog. I tried doing a few items in list form, and it paid off in page views. I did this for 10 reasons, but I don’t remember what they were.
The most popular post of the month, by far, was Top 10 things I learned in the blizzard.
Blog Guy, I’m getting married next Saturday, and I could use some advice in choosing my bridal gown.
Sure. Congratulations on the happy event! In selecting your gown, you should think about what message you want to send to your gathered loved ones, because that’s what the perfect wedding dress does.
As a blogger who watches stupid fashions all over the world, I’ve always been happy about one thing. No matter how dumb an outfit is, I only have to see it once.
Until this week, that is. Spotting the outfit on the left, from New York, I set it aside to think of a way to express my contempt. Four days later I’m looking at photos from Madrid, and THERE IT IS AGAIN!
Okay, Dr., uh, Smith, let me see if I understand what you’re saying here.
You’re telling me that you can breed fashion models that are part human and part animal, so they can show our new designs but we don’t have to pay them? Is that it?
Do they look pretty presentable, all things considered? Antlers AND fur? I guess nobody’s perfect.
Blog Guy, I was intrigued by your post about models having to get “instructions” before fashion shows. Were you able to learn anything more about what they were being told?
No, but I have learned more about how important it is to motivate folks just before a big event.
Somebody needs to help me out with this one. We have TWO photos purporting to show fashion models “listening to instructions” before presenting creations at a fashion show.
I can buy a team of surgeons getting final instructions before creating the Six Million Dollar Man, but what kind of instructions do models need to hear?
