Finding friends in the strangest places.

I totally agree.


Normally, I don't give too much thought to what I might read in a bathroom stall, but yesterday I think I found a whole new world of poosibilities to take pictures of. Ladies' toilet stall wizdom. ;-)

Obviously the person who wrote Edith Head gives great wardrobe in the ladies' bathroom at Tosca is someone I should be friends with.

Anyway, I'm sure you can tell this is not a 4th of July post. But since so many people are writing them, then I don't feel obliged to. Last night I went to Tosca to help bid Bon Voyage to a friend (and former colleague and sister layoff-ee) who is going to Scotland to live with her sweetie and start a new life in Glasgow.

We all had a grand time. But for some reason, I ended up holding court in my own little plush patent leather booth in the back, like Tallulah Bankhead, and people kept buying me Kir Royals (or else they kept magically appearing in front of me), but in either case, I kept drinking them. Must have been the blond hair, or the fake leopard fur coat, or both. People patted my hair and my coat.

Next time I'm going to start with Shirley Temples.

Be safe today and don't start any fires. I'm going to put a cold compress on my head.

In your case, OBVIOUSLY, blondes do have more fun.
Until the morning after.

You know, I can see it now. A coffee table book of bathroom stall wisdom. The stall wisdom should be on one page and an accompanying (and far more attractive) photo should be on the other. Yep. That would be a cool book.

I've long thought restroom wisdom should be photographed...I just never have a camera when there's something good to photograph! Sounds like you had a fabulous time...and your hair is blond now? I must have missed something.
