Although I shudder to think about the inevitability of a Hillary Clinton presidency, I can think of a blazing bright side right off: I am almost positive that we’ll never see her exposing her 70something bare legs.
Almost positive. She is a Democrat after all and their prime directive does seem to be the degradation of standards wherever possible. The no-hosiery toothpaste has been squeezed for so long out and spread around so far that it might never get back into the tube.
Behold the lamb of butter:
Behold the bunnies of Lenox:
Behold the mutant ninja turtle of Easter eggs:
I’ve decided to stop pronouncing this word: fantastic as fanTAStic and start pronouncing it f’nTAStic.
That is all.
The two eggs with the darkest backgrounds were a wedding present from my uncle the priest. He gave us three actually but don’t get me started. The other four are modern creations done by my BFF by marriage. That is to say the person who married my BFF.
It’s hard to pick a favorite. But here’s something you should know about the beige and white egg: the shell was dyed and then shallowly cut away exposing the undyed surface and resulting in this design. Pretty cool.
The display plate is Stangl’s Golden Blossom and that abstract design is a flowering perennial plant known as lupine which grows in NJ. I’m thinking of selling of most of my Stangl to finance my vintage china habit but every time I look at even a single piece, I now I’ll never be able to do it.
In other Easter news, there’s a butter lamb a’comin’.
Right on schedule, Chelsea Clinton is pregnant. How conveeeeeenient! Vote wise, this is better than a dead Hawaiian grandmother.
UPDATE: Maybe I didn’t call it. I had some notes written in November for a post predicting this but I never published it. The draft is titled Mrs. Mezvinsky’s Baby. Here are the notes:
HRC run for prez
only thing missing is grandmotherhood
chelsea pregnant in 2014 then miscarrage
real baby in 2015. elderly mother. prenatal care.
Taking back healthcare. Out with Obamacare. In with “Chelsea’s Law”.
You know, , it’s happened before that I would blog about something and then within two or three days, a big name blog would be posting abut the same ting in almost the same words. It happens on Twitter a little bit I think because I don’t have very many followers but still it happens. Twitter is different from blogging though because the rapid timelines make it easier to copy something, imply its your own and then it gets buried in the crush of a million other tweets.
But this. This is big. Remember this?
Sent off to live a second life. Who knew the second life would be in Hollywood?
Now look at this. I think Mad Men bought my old luggage.
Try to focus on the suitcase.
This is a scene from the Episode 1 Season 7 that broadcast on Sunday. I admit I didn’t catch this as I was watching but it sure did jump out at me when I read the Mad Style recap at Tom &Lorenzo. I taped this show because they’re always so dreamlike that I need at least two viewings to make sense out of it, so I am going to watch again and if I see anyone walking around in that airport carrying a little gold train case, well …
I am more pleased than spooked about this. As much as I like California Pete with his floppy hair and his tennis sweater swagger, as soon as I saw him I knew that meant I’d never see him in the same room as Stangl Amber Glo again. And now, Airway Harvest Gold luggage. Very gratifying.
Apologies all around. I complain that there are not any blogs left to read and yet here I am neglecting my own blog. I haven’t been able to get anything down here because I am dealing with the worst haircut ever. That’s not true. I’m just busy . Really busy. In the meantime, here are 4 ladies who give us things to think over. The first two are from Our Department of Forget What I Said Before Pay Attention To What I’m Saying Now
- Jenny McCarthy isn’t really against vaccinations.

2.Wendy Davis isn’t really familiar with this abortion of which you speak.
3. Next, we have two lady power brokers from the O Squad. Valerie Jarret drops by Hollywood to chit chat about inserting pro-Obamacare messages into scripts. You can tell this is a friendly, casual sort of visit – take it or leave it, its up to you! – because ValJar has chosen to dress as if she just popped off the tour bus of Hollywood Stars homes.
I suppose she’s showing off her fabulously toned arms?
Although she did take the time to find matching pumps. Shorts and high-heels. It’s a look, I guess. One thing I do like about this woman is that she always has the same hairdo no matter what the occasion. America needs something it can depend on nowadays and that thing is ValJar’s hair helmet.
4. Poor little Kathleen Sibelius has left HHS. Now well never know if she was planning an information campaign about the physical danger of having a larger than normal head.
I’ve seen her in person and she is a very petite gal with an enormous head. As you can see, even some over enthusiastic eyebrow plucking on one side can be enough to tip the balance.
