so much for our professional lives

The scene: bb and K are surveying the dismal yard.

bb: I'm writing an ad in my head: Let me do your closet. Retired professional dresser will go through your wardrobe. I'm expensive but I'll save you hundreds of dollars in bad clothing purchases...I'm thinking fifty dollars an hour.

K: I just applied for three jobs. One of them sounds great - they send me a hard-drive and I edit and send it back.

bb: I saw that one - you can do it in your jammies.

K: Look I'm ready for work! (He's wearing his robe.)

bb: ...

K: I have to go to Home Depot.

bb: I've got to do laundry.

It's true - BB - just reading your blog is saving me 100sof dollars in bad clothing purchases. Mainly because I'm reading you a season ahead. You could consult for Australian Vogue as an US Fashion Editor at large. I'm not kidding - send them an e-mail editor@vogue.com.au addressed to Kirstie Clements. (attach some of your postings - you are more spot on than Kathy Horan of the NY Times)

Sorry - it's Cathy Horyn (just in case she reads this blog) :)

I was at Target yesterday and every single dress had the exactly same cut -- I don't know how to describe it. Know what I mean? Kind of a short sleeve v-neck kimono look? But short? Very bizarre. We went to Target before Home Depot.

second, want to do my laundry while you're at it?

I think your ad sounds really clever. Are you going to do it?
