Argh! They sent my new red taffeta bustier to the wrong house!

heh…bet that gets my hit count up.

So this morning I got an email from a person. In a place. And it said,

…right up front, I want you to know I’m not judging. But I just got a package delivered from NY Lingerie addressed to me. I didn’t order anything from them. But I have — for obvious reasons — questions on whether you ordered anything from them. Again, not judging. Just let me know whether or not to open, and we’ll never discuss it again.

Oddly, it never even occurred to me at the time that sending a package from a place called “NY Lingerie” to somebody else’s house might raise … certain questions …

These are the problems you have to deal with, preferably ahead of time, when you work through a mail drop.

It’s just long underwear. Really.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    I’m sure the new bustier will be very fetching, Joel. Are you going to replace the photo at the bottom of the page (which you now admit isn’t actually you)? C’mon! Show your real self. Chaz Bono and Lana (formerly Larry) Wachowski have done it — why not you?

    New career ahead as a model for Victoria’s Really Truly Most Deep Dark Secret?

    [sarc] Thanks, Joel. [/sarc]

    Now I’m stuck with this mental image of long red, lacy underwear. Probably with sequins. And…

    ..oh, Ghu…

    …probably crotchless.

    Aaaiiigh!

    Brain Bleach!

    If you follow Claire’s suggestion and replace the pic with one of you modelling this, I will hunt you down and k/i/l/l/ y/o/u/ barf.

    Oh, great. Thanks, Claire. Now look what you’ve done…

  4. Red Bustier with an orange knitted hat (no matter how cunning) is not exactly colour co-ordinated nor easy on the eyes …..

    Heh.. the word verification is unfancy…..

  5. Joel?

    WThhodles? That’s not you at the bottom of the page????

    Where did you find that guy then? OMG it’s really Ian right?

    Joel, I think it is safe to say that YOU started it — and you’d better be fully prepared for the onslaught (which I suspect has barely begun).

    And yes, Carl-Bear, now that you mention it, I also fear that the outfit is bound to be crotchless.

    Grey Lady, knowing Joel as I do, I also fear that his color sense is going to play havoc with the whole lingerie business. But after crotchless … somehow clashing colors seem woefully insignificant.

    Camo garter belt with red bustier, orange Jayne hat and silver stockings?

    Heh the perfect Paint scheme for that raffle gun, which I’m gonna win naturally……

    Umm……Joel.
    Why did you post this where *I* could find it?
    Seriously?
    Aunty Joel. Serious mistake. I mean really; red is NOT your best color.

    Buck.

    I was wondering when Buck would weigh in. Just knew he’d have something good to say. 🙂

    It’s not what I’ll say; it’s more about what I’ll do.

    Ponder that on the tree of woe.

    Buck.

    Just curious.

    Is it really red? with a drop drawer behind? Have not seen one of those in at least 50 years. LOL

    We’d all LOVE pictures. [evil grin]

    As usual ML beat me to it.

    Lets skip the verbal descriptions … what we need, to be able to properly critique the new desert winter fashion avant garde, is Photos. Numerous photos in high definition.

    Wait ! did someone say “crotchless”?

    Awwwk …

    Never mind. NO Photos. Please.

To the stake with the heretic!
