Like I know from fashion.
In building this stupid blog, the idea of "slack" was the theme. So I figured my blogroll should be full of slackers.
Trust me. It is.
However, the "Rack o' Slacks" sounded too good to pass up and so I'm kinda stuck with a stupid fashion statement on the left side of my blog. Mostly a statement about my ignorance.
Still, I try to make it fun and imaginative. I think it's fun for the visitor to roll over the name and see who it is. Why give anything away for free? is my motto. Make 'em work for it.
For instance, the Velocigod needs to be changed to a "Pimp Hat", a flamboyant and accurate acoutrement, and Elisson went from "chinos" to "fedora", a vital accessory. It seems I know a wee bit more about men's fashion than womens, thanks to the Manolo. Erica was easy to figure, what with a
Yankees' ball cap from some team north of Georgia (thanks, Jimbo!), but the Red Sugar Muse packs heat, and so I just let her be herself. Besides, she's too cool for the room here, so I hope you geeks go visit at her place.
And, "Picture Perfect" is Robin Starfish, proprietress of the most unique blog on the planet. It is my daily dose of beautiful pictures and thoughts. She deserves her own blog-post here about her blog. Just awesome. And so many others that I've re-discovered since I changed computers and lost my bookmarks. This blog is kind of a way to assure that doesn't happen again.
The Fug Girls have been a favorite for years and they really defy any sort of category so tie-dyed seems a good fit. Was I the only one who learned how to tie-dye in high school art class?
When I have to dress up for my little town's 442nd Birthday this Friday, I'll be all aglow as a muttering fishwife-fortune teller with her idiot oracle at her side. Fisherman's net around me waist, apron, bodice and boots, assorted shackles, a leather beer mug, a wee dram o' grog, feathers, a bag of pigeon bones for fortune telling, and a dagger in m'bodice shall make for more ideas for my blogroll.
Update: Oh yeah, the backtalk has already begun in the comments. Keep it up, and someone's gonna become a cute little cotton boatneck-shell with the most adorable Hello Kitty sequins.
Informal poll: Should I change Erica's blogroll name, or leave it like it is? Cuz now, it makes me laugh. Like I said, I don't know from fashion-- and anywhere north of Georgia is like some crazy, mysterious country from a Discovery Channel special.
