seersucker, jello and funerals. typical.

Skybil: The New York Times has zeroed in on one of my fears: “Has anyone ever told you that you looked sad or tired when you weren’t? If the problem isn’t your mood, it might be your face.”
What Your Eyes Say About Your Mood – New York Times Blog
DP: oh, it’s definitely your face. just ask the ladies at dunkin donuts.
Skybil: HUMPH
Skybil: The DUNKIN DONUTS LADY WAS EXACTLY WHAT I THOUGHT WHEN I READ THAT ARTICLE
DP: ‘you look tired’
Skybil: What??? I’m not tired at all! — Her: No, you don’t look good.
DP: you need to adjust your attitude.. i have just the solution: seersucker. nobody pouts in seersucker.
Skybil: Uh huh
Skybil: Like a drunken cartoon character with a southern accent
DP: btw, been discussing jello shots with boss for last 30 min
Skybil: NICE!!! You have an excellent recipe
DP: my reputation precedes me
Skybil: I’d like to place a standing request to have you make jello shots at ALL of my parties
Skybil: Even those for small children
Skybil: Whatever … JELLO SHOTS
DP: baby showers!
DP: baptisms!
Skybil: YES
DP: bar mitsvahs
DP: (no idea how to spell.. i’m clearly not jewish)
Skybil: Funerals!
DP: YESSSSSSSSS
Skybil: Here’s to grandma!
DP: she will be missed.. tear.
Skybil: indeed
Skybil: My jello is sticking!
DP: better than being dead!

    The paisleys best step off.

    please do ask skybil how she really feels about seersucker.

    PS the paisley pants rule! as do the patchwork, the granny smith greens, the navy florals..

    Pfft! The blue dress rules all!

    PS.: Will ask skybil about the seersucker. I’m increasingly coming to the conclusion she’s loony.

    I think this passage from the story covers Skybil:

    Eyebrows made a big difference in how people perceived the mood of the woman in the picture. When the brows were lowered or slanted toward the nose, or when forehead wrinkles were added, ratings of anger and disgust increased.

  6. dpnation says:

    M++, just now you’re reaching that conclusion?

    as for the eyebrows, i wonder what they were doing the day of the dunkin donuts incident..
