I am in love with this dress.

I just checked out the book Best Dressed, which has pictures and descriptions of some the exhibits from the show Best Dressed: 250 Years of Style, which was at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1998.

This one is from the "Egyptomania" page in the book. It was made in 1923.

A few of the other dresses don't look incredibly old and dated as well, but this one. Wow. I'd wear that if I could. Everything is perfect about it - the loose sleeves, the colors, the shape.

I spent most of the summer looking for a decent informal summer type dress. I found two okay ones, but this is it. Even with sleeves.

When I first saw this picture, it was being used as the wallpaper on the computer, centered on a black background. I thought it was a professional picture.

My sister took this in New Mexico in early April (I wasn't missing school) and I love it. No, I don't know who those two kids are.

Yeah. See, beck asked me if I'd mentioned this here, since I love it so much, and well, I didn't have a good excuse not to. So here it is.

Stupid commercials

The summer heat is making me slow and stupid. I could not, for the life of me, figure out why there commercials asking me to elect Steve Cohen.

He just won, says my brain.

This week, it finally hit me. He's in the House. He has to be elected every 2 years, and hey, this is connected to that there presidential race they keep going on about on the Daily Show!

Yeah, I'm an Honors student. In college. I must be passing because I'm a liberal, there's no other explanation.

Anyways, like all representatives, Cohen has an opponent - Nikki Tinker. She's had two commercials attacking his voting record. One asked why didn't he vote to change a park name and used KKK footage. It's the south.

But the second, god, the second. I actually shouted at the TV, "YOU'RE A DEMOCRAT! ACT LIKE ONE!"

Apparently, Steve Cohen voted against something that would allow prayer in school. And this is a bad thing because we're in the south. Nevermind that you can pray in school all damn day, you just can't make others do so.

But the icing on the cake was the prayer recited throughout the commercial. It's the "Now I lay me down to sleep" one. I thought the kid was going to die because of the vote.

There was an ad for a Republican running up north and until I googled her, I wasn't sure what party she belonged to - pro-gun, pro-family, pro-life. Well, it's the South.

Today's Sally Forth...

I hope I'm not hallucinating. It is 2 something in the morning.

But damn!

This rules:

However, we all have our own bowling alleys now, thanks to the Wii.

Without the league nights.
