You're in my heart and some nonsense about leopard print

I'm feeling poorly, looking even worse, and have more congestion up my nose than the gunk tank on Fun House (US peeps, that was a most awesome show when we were kids), but I've still got my lovely Twitteraties keeping me company. For those lovely girls (and guys, Mr Horak!) I give you Rod. (That sounds rude, but Heather, you know I would if I could).

Thanks for hanging out with me everyday.

I didn't know what day it was
When you walked into the room
I said hello unnoticed
You said goodbye too soon

Breezing through the clientele
Spinning yarns that were so lyrical
I really must confess right here
The attraction was purely physical

I took all those habits of yours
That in the beginning were hard to accept
Your fashion sense, beardsly prints
I put down to experience

The big bosomed lady with the dutch accent
Who tried to change my point of view
Her ad lib lines were well rehearsed
But my heart cried out for you

You're in my heart, you're in my soul
You'll be my breath should i grow old
You are my lover, you're my best friend
You're in my soul

My love for you is immeasurable
My respect for you immense
You're ageless, timeless, lace and fineness
You're beauty and elegance

You're a rhapsody, a comedy
You're a symphony and a play
You're every love song ever written
But honey what do you see in me

You're in my heart, you're in my soul
You'll be my breath should i grow old
You are my lover, you're my best friend
You're in my soul

You're an essay in glamour
Please pardon the grammar
But you're every schoolboy's dream
You're Celtic, United, but baby I've decided
You're the best team I've ever seen

And there have been many affairs
Many times I've thought to leave
But I bite my lip and turn around
'cause you're the warmest thing I've ever found

Oh as all things do when you're saying something for something's sake, this has now evolved into my love of leopard print. Let's all make more things with leopard print! 

Look at Rodders working that suit and that hair. Leopard print and big hair is my future, surely? Then there's old Jackie just chilling out by the pool, the contoured cheeks take pounds off her I tell you! And sweet Bette saying "yeah, I'm naked under this leopard print coat, (we'll just think it's faux for the sake of this animal friendly blog) so what?" and who can deny the queen of soap opera, Bette Lynch? And there's Liz, showing us all how to spend time in the pool. Don't swim, just pose. That picture makes me think I'll make the bombshell swim suit in leopard print. Rod's gonna love it next time we hit the South of France. Oh and look at my ex, Cary, trying so hard to give me come-to-bed-eyes in that robe. Oh Cary, we sure had an affair to remember.

So, I know Mink Deville has started this with her awesome Victoria blazer rocking the jungle like there's no tomorrow, and I think more animal print is needed in our blogosphere. There was an epidemic of middle aged women wearing it at Rod's concert last week, and I must say, it was a pleasure to see. Nothing screams, I want it, I got it and I don't care what you think, more than some leopard print. So if I feel better tomorrow, I am going to pop to Rolls & Rems in my lunch break and get me some of that hot stuff. 

Anyway, that's it from me and Rod. Hopefully soon, I'll have some updates to report on my Graceland dress, didn't know I was going to Graceland? WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? ;)


  1. You make me wish I was sewing something with leopard print Right Now!!!!

    Oh Cary, Clare's done with you so why don't you come over to my place. Meow.

    1. Is that what Cary is telling everyone? I dumped him! He's such a cad. But yeah I'm coming over, we'll make leopard print everything!

  2. I have a hankering for a shirtwaister in leopard print. I made some doll accoutrements for christmas for my niece last year out of a gorgeous leopard print cotton. It was a small print and "A-ha!" I thought, "that would be perfect for my summery dress." Can I find where I bought it, nope! I know I got it off ebay, but I have been through all my emails, history etc, but cannot find any record of it :-( I guess I shall have to go a-surfin', again. What a hard life!

    Hope you are feeling better.
