Dresses, Tiaras and Wednesday Worthy

The dress I ordered is supposed to come today. I’m excited to see it. So far, I’ve only seen it in this picture:


Bwhwahaha!! Okay I’m kidding. That’s Kate Hudson rocking that dress that I could NEVER wear.  The dress I ordered is much more modest, a light aqua “sweetheart gown” with sequins. We’ll see if I like it. So then I’m on a plotting phone call with my friend Laura Wright and she asked about the dress. I finally confessed I’d ordered one but hemmed and hawed about showing her. I mean come on, Laura’s a former actress and much more fashionable than I am.

Laura, “Are you going to show me or not?”

Me, “Fine, I sent you the link. But I don’t know if you’ll like it.”

“Okay,” she said, “I’m opening the link.”

I waited and chattered on about my book that we were plotting. Finally I couldn’t stand it. “Have you looked at the dress???” Seriously how long does it take?

“It’s opening…oh I love it! It’s you.” A beat of silence then, “Damn I’m glad I didn’t have to lie.”

LOLOL! I love Laura. She would have lied to me, but she’d have hated lying and I would have known she was just being nice.

Then she asked, “So what shoes are you going to wear?”

Me, “No idea. But this is my princess dress so I’m going to wear a tiara. I’ve always wanted to wear one.”

DEAD SILENCE!!! I gave it a whole four-seconds before I burst out laughing, “I’m kidding! You are too fun to screw with.”

“Oh my God I believed you! I really am fun to screw with.”

I was laughing too hard to even touch her last line. And what’s really evil is she’d just helped me with a hook I desperately needed to get my book going. Laura’s awesome and I’m…evil. So finally I thanked her a gazillion times (I have some class) and then got off the phone, when Wizard asked.

“Why were you laughing like that? It’s your evil laugh.”

So I told him.

Now he’s swearing he’s going to buy me a fake tiara and I’d better wear it or his feelings will be hurt.

I think I just got paid back for teasing Laura. I’m so not wearing a tiara. But I might have to take a fake picture with one to convince Wizard that I did wear one :-) Hopefully though, he’ll forget about the tiara.

Oh and Laura loved the premise of my new book, which is way more satisfying than her liking the Rita dress and convincing her I’m going to wear a tiara :-)

Now if you waded through all that, here is our Wednesday Worthy. I’m sorry he’s wearing a shirt, but I couldn’t convince him to take it off.  Maybe I should have worn my tiara and commanded him to take it off <g>

So is he worthy?

    :gigglesnort: That dress would so totally not be you. I’m not sure if it’s Kate Hudson either, but that’s me. I’m not into dresses that leave little to the imagination. You should definitely do the tiara, though. Even just for a little while and just for a gag. That would be a hoot.

    I’m so glad Laura loved the premise of your book. It’s going to rock, I just know it.

    This dude’s not doing it for me today. The pouty look turns me off. I feel like someone just grounded him, and he’s going to hold his breath ’til he dies. Or some such nonsense. Makes me want to take away his allowance. Gah, and now I feel old. Dang whippersnappers! Don’t make me get my cane out! ;o)

    Uhm….I have a turquoise tiara that would totally rock that dress. Just sayin’! :twisted:

    Can’t wait to see you in it. I’m totally going to the RITAs this year. (I’ve been known to skip because by the time Sat. night rolls around, I’m totally fried.) I have a couple of pics of this guy sans shirt. Oh yeah. He’s worthy! ;)

    Happy Hump Day, witches!

    B.e, I’d never wear that dress, but Kate looks good in it. Now there were a few at the Billboards Awards that made me cringe :-)

    I’m thinking I will skip the tiara, LOL.

    I’m ridiculously excited thinking about the new book, but writing it is a lot harder than talking about it.

    It’s fascinating to me that what I see as intensity you see as pouting. He is youngish, but I love his eyes and jaw. We all have a different visual filter.

    Silver, no tiaras!! This is what I get for teasing Laura!

    I totally get skipping Ritas. It’s always a long night too. Plus you’re going to have a lot to do at conference with the NRCA.

    Okay now i’m gonna have to find a pic of him sans shirt!
