Okay, are you serious about the underwear job? And what are drunken noodles?

LeLo in NoPo said...

Yes, I'm serious about the sewing bows on underwear! Hey, I was in college. I had a sewing machine. It was work. I needed money! (I wasn't very good.)

Drunken noodles are tasty tasty thai street cart food. You can get lovely drunken noodles at Typhoon here in Portland.

ok, so moving away from the daddy fixation/obsession next obsession would be clinton kelly...perhaps when merchmikey and i are in portland in the next few weeks we can all take in an episode of what not to wear...mikey has a bit of crush on clinton as well as i...and hey, would you trade free tiny merch for piano lessons???????

Does Wink bark at Cesar Milan????

LeLo in NoPo said...

Clinton Kelly is adorable, but the favorite character from that show has got to be the adorable cudly Nick Arrogio (sp?). Prior to Wink coming to live with us, AdRi was set on having a dog named Nick Arrogio. As for piano lessons, that was a long, long time ago, but yes, we could talk!

RSG, Wink does not bark at Cesar, but thanks for the heads up about that show. Cesar is awesome, and amazing! Wink does perk up and is interested in the show, though. Tell Ginger to calm down: Cesar Milan is her friend! ssshhhshshhshshhhshhshshhsh. (love that technique)

you know, am fickle when it comes to nick...and a bit is all what is going on with his hair...but he is quite adorable on so many other levels if i weren't so damn shallow...

Crotchless undie seamstress. Wow!

Hey, I'm at the Mac store trying to decide whether an iBook or a PowerBook is better. Which would you recommend. I know I should send you a legit e-mail, but I'm trying to get in some practice typing on this very foreign iBook keyboard.
