Fresh Coat

Saviour Onassis has posted photos of his bathroom, which he recently painted ultra white. When I talked to him on the phone Sunday afternoon, he was busy painting his kitchen cupboards some shade of black--I don't know if it was ultra black or just black. In any event, we had to sing the chorus of that Stones' song--you know, the one that goes, "I see a red door and I want to paint it black...."

Yeah, yeah.

Anyway, I did some painting myself last weekend: my toenails. Saturday afternoon it was FINALLY warm enough that I could strip off my socks and give my toenails a fresh coat of polish.

I admit I get very lax about pedicures in the winter: it's just too cold to be barefoot long enough for the polish to dry. Plus I like to see how long it takes for the very last bit of polish to come off on its own. Because the last pedicure I gave myself last fall involved this industrial strength black polish with bits of glitter in it, it never did wear all the way off by itself: I had to use nail polish remover to get the last persistent bit before I painted the nails up again on Saturday.

I chose a nice spring color, a pale frosted green the manufacturer calls "grass stain." My toes look great, and if I were any less lazy, I'd post a photo of them. They won't be seeing much sandal action, unfortunately, because the weather has chilled down again and I'm back to wearing socks.

You really need to figure out that camera. Oh, the lost opportoenities.

Dale, that pun is just toe, toe much.

As we discussed, painting things black is way, way, way more fun than painting things white.

I shy away from green toenail polish, but on girls like you and Sally is fabulous.

Thanks for the comparison to Sally, SO. She is not my guru in many things, but I would take her advice on style.

p.s. My magic letter combo is kpkbuik--is that a lost car model? the Buick KPK?

Seriously? The color is called "grass stain?" I don't want to imagine what other colors might be in their line.

I mean, I'm sure it looks great on you...

the color is called "grass stain," really and truly. And even though you said you didn't want to think about their colors, some are:

tragedy (dark blue)
storm (dark purple)
vegas (gold)
zombie (really dark purple)

Yo Bored, how the hell did I just now figure out that this blog exists? Where the hell have I been?

btw, I have a really awesome jpg you might want for your blogger profile. It's of a certain 50's pin up girl, not that there's any shortage of pics of her, but this one would be perfect for you, cause she's writing in her little journal-poo.

e-mail me and let me know if you want it, I'll send it.

I keep this blog on the DL, for whatever reason--I can't quite explain the logic, but there are times when I start to write something and I just know it belongs on this blog and not my daily blog.

But I'm glad you've found it.

I think I need at least a second b-l-o-g myself sometimes. Some things here, some things there, I like to compartmentalize a little. Nothing toe outrageous however, har har.

If you write more than one blog, Dale, I'll read them all.

Reese has more than one blg; SO has more than one blog; I have more than one blog. Like the saying goes, if you blog it, they will come.

For the record, this blog of yours is now known to me as Tell Me Something Dangerous And True.

I hear that everytime I click on it to wise up on more of your musings.
