oh dear, Sarah.......

let me clarify.

I would ONLY remember if you wore something really ghastly and wore it again, or REALLY outstanding (like a Chanel suit), and wore it again.

If you're anywhere in between those two, I would NOT remember, honest truth.

so sorry to have caused you such duress!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, now speaking of Coco Chanel, let's remember her theory, which was something like.....if a woman walks into a room with a very busy, showy, or crazily-patterned outfit, people will say "look at that dress..." but if she walks in, carrying herself with great posture and poise in something quite simple and understated, highlighting the figger or whatever, they will say "look at that WOMAN."

Go with teh basic black, I PROMISE you no one will remember.

:)

Ooooookaaaaayyy..... Basic black, I can do... and really, was Coco ever wrong?

You wore a lab coat.

You were also trying to tell everyone that you were wearing Ugg's new fur boots but we all know you were going barefoot . . .

oh yeah...

at least my feet are finally warm

The lab coat reference reminded me that for my next audition for the musical theater I'm going to sing "I feel pretty" while putting on my very sensible shoes, lab coat, safety goggles, giant cryogloves, and putting my hair into the cabbage patch topknot.

Maybe I can start coloring my feet to improve my appearance

I am SOOO going out for a drink with you!!!! :lol::lol:

:lol: that's the spirit!!

(Wish I'd said that :angry: )

Hey! They can be female...Few people make more noise when watching hockey or football than I. Quite embarrassing, actually....even for me!

Yay!! Love this!!

How long is the lease? When does his daughter come back?

1 year lease. Lauryn WILL be here for at least a few days after Christmas!

And it's not really all that frequent w/ John. He's usually out a nearby bar while LOUD. And I think I can get him to quiet down in the future.

AND he's out-of-town on biz 4days/wk, incl now, which had a LOT to do w/ me thinking I could deal w/ a roomie.

I'd best just stay out of the wardrobe discussion.

'Cept to say gotta love Coco's take on it.

OMG I thought of somethign else......we at times can actually refer to all sodas as COKE out here. So...someone will say - "do you want a Coke" when they really mean - any kind of SODA POP :lol:

YES! I meant to throw in the all-encompassing "wanna coke?" myself!

Maybe that started for me when i went to Tucson for college. Hmmm :huh:

OMG I once scored a major fashion coup, over 15 years ago........it was a black suit, with tuxedo lapels with just a hint of satin on them........ . ..

......friends called it my Magic Suit ......... :rolleyes: and it really did have power.......

Hehehehehe Magic Suit :)

An old girlfriend, one I probably should've married :( , had some sort of tuxedo-ey yet very feminine, suit that she loved to wear.

One of my best friends of all time, and while we had a great talk and a ton of laughs on the phone recently, her husband is so against us keeping in touch, pffft it's done. :(

You wore a lab coat.

You were also trying to tell everyone that you were wearing Ugg's new fur boots but we all know you were going barefoot . . .

:lol:

Hooray for Janet!!! A sudden spike of silliness amongst a fashion/wardrobe discussion!!

Thank YOU m'dear!! :lol:

I wish I had a magic suit...To make my legs look four feet long, my bum to look smaller...you know...the stuff magic's made of... :rolleyes:

Last year to my Christmas party I wore this incredible Alfred Sung dress that I paid--ready?--twelve dollars for. Value Village. Conversation stopped when I walked into the dining room (Ha! This was, unfortunately, because the side and back of my dress was tucked up in my underwear). Indeed, my classiest of entrances... :o:lol:

Gus is post-op, still acting rather drugged. Stumbling around a bit, not eating. Big, expensive, slovenly beast!

Nope, one day as my coworker and I were walking up the sidewalk back to the hospital, a very strong gust of wind came and blew mu skirt right up to my chest. Of course, people were all over and I was facing the hospital so everyone saw me....

Well, my fingers are about to fall off. I wrote a manuscript on another thread and hit the post butten and . . . poof . . . it was gone. Had to rewrite it again. That's not funny, all my silly leaked out whilst typing.

To make matters worse, I'm in the middle of our annual Christmas letter. I pride myself on our family letter. There is no mention of any resume-type info or international trips or how our children are learning three languages simultaneously. I have people tell me that they actually look forward to it. There's so much pressure to be wittier every year. And I think I've used up all my wit on this board. The clock is tickin' and that letter is not getting funny!! Although, just so you girls (Susie & Sarah) know, the muffin-shaped projectiles and hot gravy jello have been mentioned under the topic of gluten-free cooking! :lol:

Jess, when you do your "I Feel Pretty" song, please have someone record it so we can all watch on youtube!

There's so much pressure to be wittier every year. And I think I've used up all my wit on this board. The clock is tickin' and that letter is not getting funny!!

I've suddenly had a lifesaving idea for you, Janet...print out the last 250 pages of this thread, delete all posts but yours (or not...then your loved ones will be reading about Tom's drunk roomie, my dad the chameleon, Susie's neighboUrhood zombie...which my family might just LOVE), and send it all off with a big "This has been my life over the past few months. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Spanx Higher Power Magic Knickers

:lol:

You know, I still have the Magic Suit, in the back of the closet, gathering dust.....it's too old and tired to wear, even if I had MIRACLE KNICKERS to ameliorate the situation (note repeat usage of Word-A-Day type words to ensure proper integration into Janet's Christmas Epistle) :lol:

I KNOW!!!! I keep checking, but nobody is posting. I'm going to have to pull a Carla and quote myself (whilst eating three crumbs of a donut).

Yes, however I could not find anything quote-worthy in my own posts........was wistfully reliving in my mind, however, the days when my Magic Suit was actually a necessary part of my life...... :huh: And now.......dressing up is changing from sweats to jeans.........
