Addendum: Pink Houses II: Invasion of the Ho Bags
So....as it turns out, the fact that the house on North Avenue was painted Pepto-Bismol pink was only the joke. The punchline is that is was painted Pepto-Bismol pink because the next season of E's The Simple LIfe, that "reality" thing where Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie pretend to be actual people, is apparently being shot in the pink house. So, yes, it's supposed to look like a cheap hooker. About two this afternoon, Spooky and I walked over to Freedom Park, because I wanted to look at clouds, and there was a television crew, a radio station's van, and many other things, including two blonde's giving out "lemonade and cookies." Were they Paris and Nicole or just interns in disguise? I didn't get close enough to find out. As we were taking these photos (below), they kept shouting, "Don't you want some cookies and lemonade?" Finally, I shouted back, "I am the Lorax! I speak for the trees!", which shut them up.
In which we realise, something's up...
In which we ask, "What the frell?"
The sordid truth begins to dawn.
We've been invaded by trashy socialite floosies.
I wish I were making this up...
I shall pause, though, to congratulate mistressmousey on the birth of Allistair. Give 'em hell, kid. Now, where's that flame thrower. I know Nar'eth left one lying around here somewhere.
