Hurrah for cleavage and knees and boo to stripey knickers is all I can say.

ps I hope you have made a chart to plot the success of all these ventures.
Have a good New Year thing.

You can never have enough ennui as long as it's grand.
I need to go back to bed I misread satin knickers as saltine crackers.

Oh, what a good idea. I sense a geekish spreadsheet coming on...

Oh dear, Boz, you are in a bad way. Hope you feel better in the New Year.

Yours will come earlier than mine, over there in Hong Kong. Hope it's wonderful.

But...but....but... I love wine, chocolate pudding and Emo. He said I was a real hot momma once, a long time ago. Unless I read it wrong and you said Elmo, in which case, let him go!

According to Paul's blog, emo means something different than Mr Phillips over there in Merkia. It means emotional music, as in over-emotional, as in Coldplay, as in splitting up with people and whingeing and crying as you listen to emo.
Emo Phillips called you a real hot momma? Ooooooooh.

Which you want? Impotent rages, slightly over-used. Lying - past its best days. STripey knickers, two sizes too large?

Top three and bottom four, and a couple inbetween.

Oh, and satin knickers snag terribly and go crinkly within five minutes of wearing.

And Vogue missed out the fun part of those lists - The Buy More column.

And what do I do with all the apple, olive and sage greens that I was advised to buy in the Autumn?

I tend to ignore the "in" and "out" lists because things I've decided I like go into the "out" column as soon as I get interested in them. I suppose my "chic meter" doesn't work...

That was an idea culled from a friend who used to carry a printout of his resolutions around in his wallet and then hurriedly tick a box when something had been achieved.
A group of us did wonder, once, whether he'd pulled the bit of paper out after he and his new girlfriend 'intimately acquainted themselves'. We'll never know though, as I'm sure there wasn't a box for 'depressing break-up' and 'Plunge into lonerdom' about four months later in the sequence.

Gosh, that's like an entire life span of a blog in miniature in that single comment..... :o)

I think rather it's that the magazines depend upon your insecurity and lack of self-esteem to sell issues, and you confound them by having more of same than they can sell to, Kat.

Yay to sugar highs and scarlet! They kept me going in 2003... I think I'll keep them in 2004. Can I please have your answerphone and chocolate pudding? And maybe a bottle or two of wine?

Did Vogue really put Vogue in the delete list? I wonder if their loyal subscribers will loyally unsubscribe now.

And a very happy New Year to you, Vanessa!

Ah well, if it's that type of emo then it can go. I'll bin it for you!

And yes he did, and yes I am ;-)

Oh dear - I got my Mum "365 smiles from Buddha" book. Is that a keep or delete? I'm so confoosled.

I'd think it's a pretty sure thang for a 'delete' myself, wouldn't you?
Where've you been hiding for the last ten months, anyway?

According to the Washington Post's In/Out list for 2004 "Ugg boots" are in. Better sell yours on e-bay before the market is saturated.

Opening lines of the Washington Post article: "Here's your List for 2004, and it's been 100 percent metrosexualized by yet another bossy sissy. We'd stick around and explain it to you, but everything on our List has already (already?!) been griped about and refuted on somebody's smarter-than-thou blog. (Drat!)"

The list: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/style/articles/in_out.html

Bluntness, deleted? Say it ain't so? That's been my major gig since I was old enough to talk! "Aunt May, your @#%$! are too big and they're heavy, stop hugging me." "Look sweetie, when I said that shirt looked ugly, I meant it looked horrifically ugly."

YES! BURN EMO TO THE GROUND!

LMAO! Thought you'd like that Emo comment.

My God, there's a paper that listens to its audience, eh? Blogs in the UK are still weird pokey corners of the internet inhabited by twitching geeky obsessives. They sound so ... so ... acceptable and overground in the US. Weirdness.
