Grey Days

First things first - go here

Vote for little old me, claim your pony. And now, on to bidness.

Thanks again to Thankfifi for providing some kickass inspiration, this time grey style couldn't be worse. Mine isn't QUITE as dope as hers (Target boots and a thrifted sweater, and sadly sans fox tail), but it was oh so cozy.

What IS awesome, though? The story I recalled with some old friends on Facebook yesterday, of our college days. I don't want to brag, but SOMEONE in the story drove a powder blue Dodge Aries K car circa 1986. Don't hate the playa.

Word on the streets is that this Dodge Aries K-driving B.A.M.F.* (with two friends in tow) happened to be in a bit of a street chase with some fellow college boys, and was allegedly driving like Mario Andretti through the streets of a small southwest Missouri town.

There was quite possibly a near collision with a telephone pole, but thanks to said driver's cat-like reflexes behind the wheel, the pole was avoided. What happened next, though, was a travesty on several levels. Said driver was PELTED by the driver of the other car, through the open window, with a Little Debbie Swiss Cake Roll. Right in the black tulle-wrapped fedora. And some of said Swiss Cake roll exploded onto the driver's red and gold bustier and cutoff jeans shorts, but luckily, bounced before schmearing onto their over-the-knee stockings with tiny suspender belts that attached to aforementioned denim. 

PEOPLE - do I need to stress what is wrong with this picture? First of all, the sacrilege of a snack cake. Secondly, BLACK TULLE WRAPPED FEDORA??? With bustier, no less??? That's so much wrong it's oh so right. Incidentally, I should mention that NONE of this story took place under the influence of adult beverages or other illegal substances. Oh no, that was a natural high.

I think if we can learn anything from this little story, it is don't drive and snack cake. Little Debbie's don't schmear fedoras - PEOPLE schmear fedoras.

Haahh love this! First off - voted for you! Hope you win!

I recall a driving adventure in college - we were trying to enact revenge on some pickup truck driver that cut us off - our revenge was to hang out of the car window and spray coke cans at his car from our cooler. Only when we opened the can, the coke sprayed back in our faces! We finally gave up on that scheme and resumed being cut off...
