Can you hear me? I'm about 200 miles from home today.
I left for points South Thursday morning to do a little family visiting. That's why you've had the same old, same old blog up since Wednesday night. Kinda boring for y'all when you stop in, but I've been B-U-S-Y, busy! I tell ya I got some fam that knows how to talk, and eat and shop!
Oh, and for those of you who read a certain PhlegmFatale...Mom and I stopped at the Estee Lauder counter at a "Major Dept. Store" y'day. Mom had tried a spritz of Beautiful, cause she is. I was walking my way around the counter, and the Sales Consultant was going into her spiel about how if I bought Pleasures I would get the blah,blah,blah. I had already seen the posters and pics every where of DearGwenyth selling Pleasures. I stopped my stroll, looked this Lady dead in the ey and said, "I wouldn't buy anything Gwenyth Paltrow was selling if it was on sale for a penny." And she and my Mom get this scary shocked expression on their faces. The Sales Lady recovers and asks, "Why not?" I reply, "Because she's an addlepated twit who thinks Americans are ignorant,boring conversationalists. Then, when she starts taking criticism for saying this to a reporter, she says she was misquoted in a Portugese paper and needs to practice her Spanish. Which wouldn't do her much good since they speak Portugese in Portugal! Anyway, She's an ungratful, pampered, ninny who saddled her baby with a name sure to get her teased on any school playground in any country on the face of the planet." The sales Lady doesn't miss a beat. "Well, she only sells Pleasures for Lauder, you were looking at Beautiful, right?" I can't help myself. I start laughing and compliment the Lady on how good her marketing skills are.
Diamond Mair, Happy Belated B'day!!! Welcome to the Red Hat Club. We can have virtual Meetings in Google Chat! As soon as I get home, I'll either answer your invite if you sent me one, or send you one. Hope you had a SUPER HOORAH kinda day.
GBro, yeppers I remember those conversations. If we'd had Chat and computers we could've had 4-ways with you, Dave, Doris and me! Guess we were just born too soon!
