I'm a writer living in New York who is currently quite amused.
Excellent post. For the record, Susan Miller (in person) is like your lovable, worldly, wine-swilling aunt. I actually cannot vouch for the wine-swilling part, but she has that caution-to-the-wind vibe that seems to go hand-in-hand with goblets of better-than-average sancerre.
B&B Brilliantine is good stuff. I once wrote Bumble & Bumble Corporate a letter - on paper! - singing its praises and they sent me a box of it, along with various test-market products (including that fancy hair powder that makes you look vaguely Victorian/deranged). I was pleased.
I love this with the strength of a 5-7 ill-advised vodka sodas! Side note: I met a really cute guy in my DUI class (in SF!) in 2000. But it never worked because of the unsurmountable "how did you guys meet?" question. . .
Am normally wary of Clothes That Say Things but this witty, polite hanky has won me over.
This may expose me as An Old, but while making out with college boyfriend, "You Can Leave Your Hat On" by Joe Cocker came on the RADIO. Makeout-ender for sure. Thanks, KFOG.
Heh. World's Ugliest Jug worth a look as well.
