And It Was All Yellow

I loved this Vera Wang dress from the moment I saw it at the 2006 Academy Awards. I loved everything about Michelle Williams in the dress too. The hair. The lips. The necklace. Simply stunning. No other dress has stayed in my mind like this one.

The image of her in it pops into my head from time to time when pretty thoughts are running through my brain. It’s always a welcome image.

ADDED LATER: After posting this, I was perusing Go Fug Yourself and Jessica mentions this dress. Funny.

Also, on a totally separate note, I have been trolling craigslist hoping and praying that this Saarinen oval table just pops up for a reasonable price. Big fat chance. I know. Stop laughing. However, it’s fun to look. (This is part of my goal to make this house more “Mine” and less “Look! Joann Fabrics and Suburbia got drunk and threw up all over your house!!!”)

People will sell ANYTHING, which makes me laugh.

1. No one wants your gross waterbed. Not even for $50. No one.

2. Or your pilly, stained bean bag, Gary.

2. The term “mid century modern” is WAY overused. This couch is NOT mid century modern, MFers. Not even close.

3. The chair you bought for cheap at a garage sale, painted a fun green color and then reupholstered the seat with funky fabric does NOT make it “vintage”, Lynette. It just doesn’t. Bless your heart.

Laughed and laughed, out loud ... I love your sense of humor ... poor Gary ... I bet he totally lies about his height on Eharmony ...

So you know me, I'm not a commenter. This post is hilarious though. One of the funniest things I've read in awhile. Nicely done. The picture of that sad nasty couch made me feel a bit better about my life. With black marker all over our basement couch now curtesy of Mia, and carpets desperate to be vacuumed because ours blew the f up, I can at least take pride in the fact that I will list neither of these pieces of shite on Craig's List. Oh...and that yellow dress? Perfection. Gorgeous. Everything. Michelle Williams has a special place in my heart because of that dress.

This has to be my favorite. Totally agreed. Agreedest. It makes my garage inventory look like Saks. No shit.

I always get the best laughs from reading the "will trade for" category on craigslist. Will trade keg fridge for dental work.

KT, I'm dying laughing. Really. I have to go check that out.
