Goin' to the beach, y'all.


I know, I know, I'm taking off weekends lately like it's my job.

But at least this time my hiatus is not for some lame reason like running a race, visiting my family in Michigan or heading down South to see my newborn niece. No, this time I have a legitimate excuse for taking time off, and it involves remedying a fading Summer tan and two and a half day's worth of wearing nothing but a push-'em-up-and-out bikini top and trolling the shores of St. Michael's for a man in Halliburton-logo swim trunks.

Some dogs sniff out narcotics, some sense natural disasters and still others know when there's an illegal immigrant hiding around the corner -- mine, strangely enough, has a nose for all-powerful, apple-shaped Republicans.

Don't you, smunchkin-pie?


See you bright and early on Monday morning!

Please don't use that precious dog to find Dick Cheney. For the love of Britney, Hannie, let him have his innocence!

Oh my GAWD, what a cute picture of him! How were you able to catch him in that pose?

I completely endorse the first comment. Using Monte to such ends is simply repugnant, and will undoubtedly offend his own left-leaning political sensibilities!

If Monte finds him I can't promise you that Dakota won't eat him. I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.

So sad not to be joining y'all this time around. I'll just have to urban tan it on the man's roof. If the weather is nice.

My fingers already hurt from crossing.

for the record, by comparison, *I'm* the liberal one in my little abode. That little guy may only be 14 lbs, but he's 14 lbs of pure, unadulterated neo-conservative fury.

I love you, Cynthia, but if Dakota goes near my boo, you know shit's goin' down. Like, *DOWNTOWN* down.

K- we're all sad, but you can make it up to us by having another rooftop party and wearing another T-bags maxi. Yes, that was me giving you permission to purchase another Summer-only, don't-really-need-it-but-want-it $350 dress.

Cynthia said...

You got me. Dakota's all talk. Literally. We ran into Dick at Cafe Milano a few weeks ago and she would not shut UP about her opposition to imperial expansion into Iran.

K said...

YES! I have a T-bags watermelony/orangey maxi dress in my shopbop cart right now. Or I would, if they let you keep things in there for more than 30 minutes.

So what if I already have a calf-length printed version with the same neckline and a maxi version with a different upper-half style? Sh-t is smokin'.

May as well get that Susana Monaco pleat-neck mini for fall while I'm at it...

THANKS, AUNTIE JO!

Um, K, while you're "at" shopBop, can you throw in the gunmetal bomber by S.W.O.R.D. and those fantazmical Vita stiletto pumps by Jean-Michel Cazabat?

Yeaaaaahthanks.
