12:57 pm - The New Boring
The prompt for this: "The New Boring" fashion video-feature at the Guardian.

(Ironically, I am wearing New Boring white T and black trousers at the moment, 'cept for my white All Stars and an insanely sparkly costume-jewelry necklace inherited from my mother. So -- whee, fashion!)

Favorite line from the video: "you do need a little [juss?zuss? cool possibly made-up word] to make it work."

Clearly I need a little juss/zuss/cool-possibly-made-up-word in this livejournal o' mine. Clearly.

I am therefore soliciting requests for posts To Be Made in this Summer of Juss/Zuss/CPMUW. What would you like to read about? If I can, I shall comply...

And may your day be the New Interesting! ;-)

I could do a fashion post or two, happily. Thank you, Chase! :-)

It has certainly interesting.

In the old Chinese curse sense.

Oh, dear. Politics. :-(

Well, I shan't be writing about that....

I could probably talk a bit about Shakespeare, yes. :-)

Thanks and hugs and a good end of Tuesday!

"Zhuzh", perhaps? I believe it's a Carson Kressley term, as well. :-)

And may I request a post about wine?

That must be it!! You are so wise, Cindergal.

Wine post(s) this summer for you in thanks. :-)

More thanks and hugs!

In total agreement with cindergal's take on the term (which I can't figure out how to spell either).

Just happy to see a post, any post now that my network is back up and my iMac has been raised from the dead (I adore my Genius Bar guys and Apple's decision to offer free repairs on the problem exhibited by my 5-year-old model...hooray!)

Also, bonus that last night's sudden snow/ice fall was melted this morning.

Hugs!

Hi hi! I'm so glad that your computer and network are back, and so glad that the snow-ice is gone, too! Hi!

[hugs]

I only pay attention to fashion when things I like are currently "in" so that I may buy them. Fortunately, Converse All-Stars and cowboy boots apparently never go OUT...

This is a v wise plan -- especially as I too wear the cowboy boots regardless of fashion's dictates. :-)

Happy Wednesday! Hugs!

Out here, fashion can dictate what it wants -- boot stores always make sales! (One of my goals this year is to get myself a GOOD pair -- something I haven't had in several years; my old Laredos are starting to show their age.)

Happy Wednesday to you, too!

But you'll be reading longer bits of story outside of LJ! (We hope.) :-)

However, there may be a ficlet or two included here.

You are kind, S, and I send hugs and thanks!

Since moving to this tiny village a few months ago, I pretty much wear the same thing all the time -- yoga pants with some sort of casual top. On my feet? Runners or Crocs. I'm all about fashion...not ;-)

Hee! My own interest in fashion is, shall we say, more academic than practical. ;-)

Happy Friday, C!
