If she offers me an apple, I’m outta there…

wicked stepmother

Today’s the day I’m a-sposed to be out…<koff>…clothes shopping with my stepmother.

What? You can’t see Stoaty as Snow White? Pff! You can smooch weasel butt!

Something low-cut, slinky, and highly inappropriate for a family gathering I hope.

Tends to cut down on the invites (I’ve heard).

Awww, that is so cute. You share clothing with your Madame Alexander dolls.

Fellow minions wanting updates on our patroness might like to know that I just phoned old Stoaty.

She was in a … dress shop.

With The Wicked Stepmother.

You know that pinched-up frowny face weasels have? The one that makes them look like they want to rip your liver out and eat it?

That was just how she sounded.

I hope there will be a picture (albeit faceless) or a drawing.

You know, you’re going to England. England is overrun with Pakis and Indians. You should acclimate and go to your shindig in a sari.

With a braid-hair-extension (fake hair already tied into a long braid with the requisite colorful cloth doodads).

And a nath (large nose-ring, like a hoop earring but for the nose). Lots of gleaming, golden jewelry. Kundan!

I guarantee it’ll be the last one you’d be invited to.

Stiff upper lip, Stoaty! Just hum “Some Day My Prince Will Come” (loudly) and think of Uncle Badger.

Sunday I was watching a DVD of Errol Flynn’s “Robin Hood” – I watched all the extras (as I usually do, since I have no TV) (no cable, that is – one of my cost saving measures). Anyway, there was a swell program on the birth and development of the Technicolor process that I thought you would enjoy. Have you seen it? I was reminded of it by Snow White, as that was one of the examples shown in the palette-choosing discussion.

Oh, and …

I haven’t seen it, Felix, but I’ll get it — I love Errol Flynn.

Every time we drive through London, Musli, I lust after the fabrics in the Indian/Pakistani shops. I’m not much on girlie stuff, but I love me some textiles. And, near as I can figure it, a sari is just like getting out of bed in the morning and wrapping yourself in the top sheet. Yes, I can do that!

It wasn’t *too* awful. We brought along my cousin, who’s my age. We’ve always been buddies. When Uncle B phoned, I was in a changing room having inappropriate blouses thrown at me. They were BOTH, like, “oh, you’l need one of THESE when you get invited to a cocktail party or something.”

And I’m, like, “y’all know that my friends are more like me than they are like you, right?” I only say “y’all” when I’m in the South. It’s an indulgence. Like pecan pie and peeing on the side of the road.

Re: “Robin Hood” – You have to get the “2-Disc Special Edition” for the Technicolor thingy. It’s a great movie, too!

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
