Scrunchie Goes Bye-Bye

There was squealing this morning from the bathroom, followed by G saying “Oh, no. Oh, no”. Of course I rushed to investigate and found this sad and sorry scene. Our beloved scrunchie, the biggest and softest of the scrunchies we own, unraveled itself and sadly succumbed to scrunchie suicide.

RIP Scrunchie

We’re devastated, naturally. Visiting hours will be tonight between 5 and 6 prior to us heading out to see “BodyWorks 2” at the Science Centre. Internment will follow tomorrow morning at The Body Shop on Bloor.

G Vs. The National Post

Shinan Govani, he of National Post fame, wrote an article in yesterday’s paper (pg AL3) “Models forever, through thin and thinner” which showed a purported picture of model Daria Werbowy. My keen-eyed fashion guru G instantly noticed the picture was not Daria but Erin Wesson, and penned an email to Shinan to inform him (again … this is the second time keen-eyed G has corrected the National Post) of the error.

1) the erroneous picture

 How soon we speak again…..

I hope you are sitting down not spilling your coffee this time.
Yes, the photo of Canadian darling Daria Werbowy is actually a photo of another supermodel, Erin Wasson….unless Daria grew a mole specifically  for this photo or has been surgically enhanced to look like her.


You are welcome


p.s.- what time shall I come in for the job interview for the position of Arts & Life Photographic Proofer??

2) the rectifying email

3) today’s National Post correction

The first occurrence was back about 2 months ago when the Post published a purported picture of Desperate Housewives star, James Denton when in fact it was Stephen Culp.  G got a correction that time too! hehe

Gay Penguins … Cont’d

Yesterday I posted about the gay penguins. Today I note the Justice Minister is being urged to raise the age of consent for sexual activity from 14 to 16 years of age. I also note that currently gay men are not allowed to have sexual intercourse with other men until they are 18. I would argue this stigmatizes gay and bisexual men.

All this to say, I wonder what the age of consent for gay penguins is?!

    thanks for the suggestion — Mariah fans need all the support they can get during these very trying times.  And you can now use that unraveled scrunchie as a boa for your next costume party.
