Some bloggage.

Since I didn’t leave you with any earlier today, here you go:

Michael Musto has a picture of a vintage Raquel Welch on his site today. (With the notation, “This might be the first time there’s even been a woman in a bikini on this blog.” Probably the last, too.) There’s something weird going on with her belly button. I can’t figure out if it’s a crude scar from crude tummy surgery, or if — and I think this is more likely — it’s a surgically created b.b., Raquel Welch having been grown from seed in a wombtank. For the record, this is really the only female body to aspire to, IMO. I hope it doesn’t cause Coozledad any problems.

And Bossy has a funny story about hair products that involves spying on Jennifer Aniston’s shower. You’ll like it. (I just looked up the price for the hair product featured on Bossy’s blog. Five ounces? Fifty-three dollars. Thank God I don’t have frizz.)

    I always went for the girl I thought would be “a good provider”, and not strictly in the sexist sense. I guess Raquel’s got some money, but she looks dangerous in that picture. Her old man isn’t going to be sitting on the sofa a lot, drinking beer.
    He’s probably going to have to fight somebody, and if he’s like me, he’s going to get his ass kicked.

    My wife was telling me abut one of T-Bogg’s posts on the margin for cosmetics. 300 % and greater markups aren’t uncommon.
    Makes me glad I missed the Glam thing.

    Off topic: Any of you Canadians familiar with I’m learning all sorts of things about Canada and its history from her site.

    That was a funny story on hair products, and a pleasant remembrance of a sister in-law.

    That picture of Raquel reminded me of Bianca in the wonderful little movie Lars and the Real Girl

    if the internets are to be blvd both her kids were in their 20s when she was still posing for such shots, in which case that navel looks pretty respectable.
    apropos or no, a friend commented that, however beautiful (your call), Angelina looks like a porn star on the VF cover. thus ensued a discourse on when she got her lips. another friend claims photos of her in her teens reveal not-so-luscious smackers. like i care, really. until they started talking about it it hadn’t occurred to me her lips weren’t real. i’m such a rube.

    Angelina Jolie’s fake lips always remind me of the Joker.

    Just saw on TV that a magazine had planned a 3 babe cover with Jen, Scarlett J., & some other hottie of the moment. The dish was that Jen wielded a black marker on the other 2, because she didn’t fare well enough, cheek to cheek. I’d recently been thinking, what is it that’s so hot about Jen A.? Really. OK, she has a pretty face,without what appears to be any real flaws. Packing what looks like some B or C cups. Not carrying any extra poundage. Overall, a very nice package. But if one was to go looking around a mall, beach or co-ed educational institution,do you really think it would be hard to find half a dozen or so that didn’t equal or exceed her? Do give her props on apparently staying natural. Those Jolie lips make me want to go searching for a pin cushion.

    I am reminded of the life sized Raquel Welch poster my sophomore year geometry teacher had on the back side of his classroom closet door. I suspect teacher’s can’t do that these days.

    pincushion! ha!
    Re Jen A. I have wondered that, too, only because i find her appealing – which tells me it actually IS something that comes from within. fess!: i’ve seen all her movies, eek! she has that twinkle that makes hetero girls wish they’d been lockermates (disclaimer: i have looked into my soul and, no, even if it had occurred to me in 6th grade i have no interest in girls that way – though there are moments i wish i did).

    The hair product: Wha? Bossy didn’t pay even a fraction of that price you were quoted! Wait, she supposes she DID pay a fraction of the price you were quoted. A small fraction. Or would that be a small *percentage*? Bossy isn’t that good at math. But she is good at going to Ricky’s NYC, which is a discount beauty products store throughout new york…
