Frowsy

Hmmm... my advice to Ursula is this: don't talk to reporters right off the airplane, or stop taking Ambien for your flights. Better yet, though, Honey, travel with your hair/makeup fairy! That way you're always fresh and girlish, like Princess Condi! Finally, though, I think it's OK for her to substitute chunky jewelry for a scarf every once in a while, but I hope she doesn't make a habit of it.

Speaking of which, however, I realize that I kinda left all of you hanging with the History of Ursula Plassnik's Scarves, but fear not! I'll resume the series tonight! Yay!

Yes indeed, you'll never see Condi looking tired. She's always fresh and perky even when she's lying through the gap in her teeth.

I wanted to believe that Ursula is a real blonde. Her roots made me a sad little Jew today. :(

You know......I'd love to see Carol in a nice Hermes scarf. I think we should get these two together.

Oh yeah, and if you talk to Ursula, there is this store called BayBreeze Jewelry in Rehoboth where they sell nothing but the chunkiest.....

OMG, I know! I was in Neiman's this weekend and saw an Hermes scarf with butterflies all over it and, I mean, who else but Carol Schwartz could pull that off? Well, Ursula, OK, but other than that?

Almighty Princess:

I think you are being a bit unkind to Ursula. In fact, I think there is something more than somewhat sexy in her naturally frazzled appearance with her un peu wrinkled look, a Central European rose that has un po' withered but still kept her original unique idiosyncrasy (beauty is too strong a word)... and then, ma
chérie princesse américaine, elle est un peut fatiguée, tu me comprends -- I mean wouldn't you, Princess, too be tired, dealing with people like the evangelical goons in the Bush regime (and that dreadful, vulgar fake "Kondi") as well as having to represent a bit of a former empire that has been reduced to selling "Mozart chocolates" and branding itself as the cultural "heart of Europe" when we all know where Hitler came from.

So at least she wears scarves, showing a little frivolity, un peu de folie, in this Walmart world, where women are reduced to pushing shopping carts or working in K-Street law firms in the name of "liberation" and wearing these awful running shoes to "work."

Sois sage o ma douleur, et tiens toi plus tranquille...

Appears madame fuhrer is wearing barbarian metal mail around her neck. Appropriate adornment for the plundering class in power in the world lately.

Whoa! The woman should of hit the loo before she left the plane. She looks like me after an all-nighter.

I'm with anonymous... I like the frazzled look... sort of rock star vibes. I'm tired of the buffed n' polished Condoloozza. She's so... antiseptic, like a big ol glass of Listerine.
