As I was walking through the market today, I heard the most sublime voice raising to the heights of Heaven. It happens often as the Opera House is at the North end, and they often pipe out recorded music from their performances to entice. But this was live and coming from … an Alpha Romeo? Yes. There’s a big Alpha Romeo installation in the market at the moment, and standing at the corner and leaning–almost lounging up against the tent post was a beautiful young woman with chestnut hair down to her waist. She was dressed casually, in jeans. It seems that AR had hired her to sing melancholy. I don’t really know anything about cars, but this bit of cheeky advertising made me interested to visit a site that I would never have visited had I not heard her angelic voice.

God save me. I have just discovered Green & Black’s organic dark chocolate with 70% cocoa solids (good for fair trade too). Heres how they got to me: I made a bet with R. that I could eat only foods with natural ingredients in for a solid month. R. calculated that my love of junk food would be my downfall. But no. After reading the labels of every junk food in the book, I found that not only can I eat Green and Black’s, but I can also eat Kettle Chips and organic popcorn from H&B. I dont think this is what R. had in mind when he made the bet with me. At this rate, my ass will be the size of Memphis before the month is out.

    Well then, dahlin’ do what they do in the South…make your hair bigger to divert the eye. Look at how well it worked for Tammy. (Wynette, that is. Although, just about every Tammy I have ever run across had a big butt.) ‘Course you go always go for the “Dolly” and get big hair AND big boobs – no one would EVER notice your junk food butt then!

    Yes, I should tease it up. I was forgetting my charm school rule No. 247: Bigger hair does indeed draw attention away from a whole host of meanies. My new exercise regime is running up and down the stiars of my 5 floor walk up until I collapse exhausted. My neighbors think I’m mad when them pass me lounging on the steps and eating a Green and Black’s.
