AUGUST 17, 2010 10:13 AM ..."....I'll take a backwards baseball cap anyday over someone who parades their feet and self-aggrandizing "style" all over the internet!"
Anonymous...I couldn't agree with you more. The hubris and strident narcissism associated with those who engage in such pedal parades as you mention should be drawn and quartered in public. Bloggers who think for some perverse reason, that there are readers who will actually, with any regularity, care to read such drivel are a sad lot. Kudos to you for avoiding the perusal of such sites that display an ongoing sociopathic self-view of shoes, feet, crotch shots and blurry pictures of various "contrived style" examples. I'd love to hear from you when you announce your own blog but in the meantime, thanks for looking at mine.

Well, by Gadfrey, sirrah, if we knew a bounder of that sort we'd feel honor bound to cane him in the Piazza...or go light a bag of puppypoo on his porch

"When a true genius appears in the world.you may know him by this sign,that the dunces are all in confederacy against him"-Jonathan Swift. I admire you for addressing anony-mouses. I personally have a childish attitude towards them.

so many things to hate

Wow, that Swift quotation is a perfect fit, I'm happy to be reminded of it. "Anon" is frequently a driveby in the sphere, BYH you have given him/her spotlight attention unavailable in real life, more proof of your generosity and kindness of spirit. If Anon would settle down and read you cover to cover, he'd understand this column for the love story it is, he'd maybe agree with me that the shoes and trousers and jackets are devices around which you so beautifully write about character, love of life and family, Time and Place. And so forth. I still want the chaise. Were the layered orientals for prop sake only, or do you really have 4 stacked up as in the pic of green-painted quasi-adirondack chairs post? I have them on top of tables, folded on benches as cushions, but heck I like the layered up on floor thing you've got going on. As the great quotation goes: "Sorry my letter is so long, if I had more time it would have been shorter." With much respect and admiration, F.

I am falling out of my chair laughing.

I don't know about the GTH pants that you Southern boys feel you have to nance around in down there but please don't stop the loafer and schwantz shots. Hell. That's why half of us come here, yeah?

For two miserably hot days now I've refused to go outside, so I've used the time trying to get MaxFluent, what a rich vein you are. Your occasional links to Charlie Rose mean I sit here so much longer, and stand up so much richer. But now just getting through June 2010, I have to stop everything and scream out loud: DOMINIQUE BROWNING IS WAITING FOR YOU! You already love her, but I don't see her blog in the margin. FWIW, she's in Rhode Island wondering where you are, FCS. Further, do I gather you haven't seen her bit with Charlie Rose, ok it was taped some time ago, but after at least one viewing [riiight] you can see how she converses. You've been focusing on the eyes, did you not even notice the lips?

SFBayArea - Absolutely!
And ADG - just you keep right on self-aggrandizing in those areas we love to see rightly aggrandized and I'll go by myself a new 36" monitor.

Nelle Somerville said...

This is why I love you the most, in a non-threatening way of course. Here, here to the love story of good taste!

Good grief. Probably of the sexless trad purists who collapse at the sight of darts and pleats. ADG, more Belgians please. Belgians 24/7! Belgians for everyone!!

I do love the power of your pen. xoxo

Anonymous who originally posted..."I'll take a backwards baseball cap anyday..." I deleted your comment of a moment ago. Relieve yourself of the aggravation my friend. Stop reading my blog. Just go away.

Everyone...thanks for your comments.

Flo...yes I've seen the Domonique Browning interview with Charlie Rose...a zillion times. The rugs are piled on one another outside and they stay there year around.

Oh mercy, I might have to quit this principal gig if it is going to cause me to get so behind in my blog reading. I have apparently missed out on all sorts of fun...

ADG said...

Belle...indeed. Now catch up!

Anonymous...bye bye.

Aggrandizing? I think Anonymous learned a new word today and couldn't wait to use it.
