Lemon Fresh

Sorry! I've been negligent lately. Good thing I'm not a professional blogger! I'd be fired! Or my ad revenue would drop or something! Wouldn't it be hilarious is this blog was 3/4 ads like Americablog? Anyway, here's an Ursula double-header to make up for it. Yay! She's so citrussy! But Ursula, maybe your boss feels a little insecure right now? Could you please lower yourself?

Well done!

All that lemony, sunny, yellowy Ursula-y goodness just woke my ass right up.

Scarf free maybe, but check out her accessorizing if you can take your eyes off the shirt!

Love. Her.

She doesn't look too happy in either photo; is the lemon yellow sucking all the energy out of her to maintain its wattage?

Still--love. her. too!

Look, mommy! It's Big Bird!

Oh my, she looks so lovely in yellow I may have to make lemonade or lemon bars or something lemony and consume them while I gaze at these photos.

Not just lemon fresh, but with the extra big bracelets. Guess she's expecting a lot of bullets to be fired.

If she also brought her Lasso of Truth, let's all say it now to save her the trouble.

We love Ursula Plassnik soooooo much!

I think I am in love. She is absolutely delicious.

I cannot get these lyrics out of my head.

They popped in at my first yellowy glance earlier today and have persisted as an earworm of Ursulian proportions!!!

She is so fresh and so clean.

At least I hope so...

Funny! He does look relieved in the second pic!

She can so turn my world on -- with or without a smile!

The bangles and bracelets and sunny yellow garb! Magnifique!

A bit of Ursula-like yellow (yes, I am stretching things a bit) at

FranIam, what are you doing, knowing those lyrics?
Quit being a big old clit tease!

Did she get a haircut? I'm detecting a shorter 'do. And I like it.

Lemon tree, very pretty,
and the lemon flower is sweet,
But the fruit of the lemon is impossible to eat.

in ursula's case
lemon redwood

and just in case anyone forgot,
they're EUROPAISCH! Glad that's

And relieved is probably the right
word madduane. He looks like he just
put a load in his diaper.
