Blow-dry me before your head explodes!

A bat-like old barber named Brown
Styled hair as he swung upside-down

hair-140.jpgBlog Guy, I’ve been watching that new HBO series, “John Adams.” You know, the one where that wine snob guy from another movie plays our second president.

Did that really happen?

When the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight.

minnie-160.jpgDear Blog Guy, I know you’ve been covering the fashion scene for years, and I’m wondering where some of those designers get their ideas.

No! Haven’t you ever seen velvet art?

Memo to fashion show staff:

I should have been more specific, I guess. I did say my vision for this creation required a model with color in her face and a flower in her teeth, but I meant fiery cheeks and a perfect red rose clenched in her inviting lips.

Runaway on the runway!
