Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
“Versace and Gucci…started their shows with men dressed in white or pale creams. Versace also showed comfort with unbuttoned tunics and safari-like jackets…”
– Reuters story from Milan Fashion Week
Blog Guy, I know you write a lot about haute couture. Where do the big designers get ideas for their creations?
I hate to boast, but sometimes they get them from me. For instance, here’s me with Donatella Versace at a recent dinner. She complimented me on my rented tuxedo and said, “Bob, what kind of crapola should I sell next season?”
“Donna,” I replied, “you can’t go wrong with whites and pale creams, unbuttoned tunics and safari jackets.”
I see you cycle couriers all over downtown areas, zipping along, always a violent curse on your lips. Do you have a slogan, like that rain and sleet one the postmen have?
Oh my God!
Ralphie, what’s wrong?
No! Nobody uses their real picture online! What does she think YOU look like?
I may have sent her a shot of Hugh Jackman. What the hell am I going to say to her? What if the OTHER stuff she told me about herself is true, too?
See, when I invited you to meet me here at the beach to cruise for chicks, and I told you to wear hats because of the bright sun, well…
Let me put it this way. You see this baseball cap I’m wearing? Well, that’s okay. Or maybe a straw hat or some such.
Blog Guy, I have a deep-seated fear of zombies. Like I was at a party and I met a nice chick but she had a dazed look and she started asking personal brain-related questions and I got scared.
You know, she was like, “Dude, that’s some cranium you got there! How much do you suppose your brain would weigh if it was freshly harvested?” Stuff like that.
Blog Guy, is it just me, or does it seem like these days you don’t see as many ferrets in fashion shows as you used to?
What about roosters? I’m not seeing so many of those, either.
I don’t know what kind of fashion shows you go to, but I’m seeing more roosters than ever on the runways. Look at this weekend show. Roosters, ferrets, snakes, porcupines…
