If you have only recently tuned into Looney Tunes, this post may make you go, “HUH?” So I will give a moment of background:
I have said this before, but I love Sue’s blog. Maybe it is that she seethes inwardly when referred to as “Martha Stewart”, maybe it is that her perfect coiff was mistaken for a wig, maybe it is her hatred of bar soap.
Nah. Mainly it’s that she is just really funny and a great writer. Good traits, but the most endearing quality?
She Loves Mormons.
She has them on celebrity status, flushes when meeting one, and dreams of having her own Mormon autograph collection.
This is unusual.
I love it. Even though I am in OFF STATUS in regards to religion, this fact just makes me HAPPY. It may be because I had the world’s most anti-Mormon grandmother in existence, who knows?
You can imagine my horror when I read the last couple of posts on her blog.
Apparently Sue’s love of Mormon’s is getting slowly edged out by her increasing obsession with her job and love of her boss!
This is like, unacceptable n’ stuff.

I went to see The Devil Wears Prada last night.
maryll Streep as the Editor of “Runway” (Based on editor-in-chief of Vogue)was absolutely brilliant.
Is there anyone quite as lovely as Anne Hathaway? I think she is just gorgeous. Even though she’s called a fat-ass for being a size 6…
I found it hard to concentrate on the story line as I really wanted to just gawk at the clothing and accessories. I love looking at clothes. I ADORE watching shows like “Project Runway” (STARTS NEXT WED. YAY YAY YAY!)
Which brings my post to the issue of style, or lack thereof.
I have none. If you don’t believe me, look at this lovely collage I assembled. Some are not horrible, but SOME. OH.MY.HELL. I know corpses who wouldn’t be caught dead in some of my thrown together creations.
That is ok (Sorta). I don’t really live in a place that requires it of me, thank god. Banana republic is pretty much as chic as it gets in Utah. Not that BR isn’t awesome…it’s just really high end for the general populous here. For Logan, it’s more like Dillards is the high end unless you drive 80 miles to Salt Lake.
I’m a haphazard mess. Some days it’s due to laziness…Some days it’s due to money….Some days it’s because I think if I try too hard I wouldn’t be much good at it anyway. Who knew defeatism could go hand in hand with picking out a sweater and some earrings????
It is a damn good thing I live where I do. I could never survive anywhere that demanded competitive grooming. Just couldn’t do it. Every time I go to New York I feel like I should have a sign over me that says “I HAVE SHOPPED AT WAL-MART. MUG ME”.
I does make me feel slightly better that my friend, John Louis, WORKED in NYC and wore a polar fleece vest to work during the beginning of his employment. I think that was also the day everyone he worked with found out that he had actually *Gasp* slept outside in the wilderness before (Camping). I believe from that point on everyone referred to him as “John Denver”.
Just because I am not a fashionista doesn’t mean I don’t LOVE good stuff, admire the well dressed and have assloads of fashion-envy. Would I love for a fairy godmother to come down from the sky, wave a wand and give me a new wardrobe? HELL, YES!
Could I actually fork over the required money and time and effort to look good. Probably not.
Doesn’t mean I don’t envy the ability or commitment, though.
I suppose I will have to be satisfied that at some point in my life I hope to be able to have some really well cut jeans that don’t sag at the but and waist, count my blessings that my entire wardrobe doesn’t come from the graphic t-shirt section at Wal-Mart (Bo Knows Your Girlfriend would be a bad look for me anyway) and that my brother thinks I look fabulous and bestowed the title of HOBO-CHIC on my person.
Works for me.
