A Discovery


Deer and Hyundais don't make a good combination.

We are in the process of dealing with insurance companies, car dealers, and the prospect of having to use our seductive charms to get to work.


We are endeavoring to get back to fabulosity sooner than later, especially since we've had so many delays in the past few months! In the meantime, if anyone knows where we can find a 1929 Isotta-Fraschini, liveried chauffeur, and handsome gigolo strongly resembling Bill Holden, please let us know.

  3. Jill - My initial thought when car met deer was: Please, Lord, don't let my air bags inflate! (They didn't, thank God.) The last accident I had - I'm a pro at these things - my air bags DID inflate, and they scorched the gorgeous, pure-white Gucci sweater I had just had specially ordered. I was more upset about THAT than the accident! Anyway, I am fine, thank goodness...just inconvenienced. Which is, of course, far better than being dead. Or comatose. Or disfigured.

    Belle de Ville - Actually, the fact that I drive (drove?) something so unglamorous as a Hyundai was a vast source of amusement to my friends and colleagues, so I can't say that I was sorry to see it go!

  4. You poor deer, er, dear.

    Why don't you drop your pocket square helplessly in front of some big ole trucker and hitch a ride?

  5. glad you emerged unscathed from this horror. if you find that isotta-frachini, might you pick me up on your way to wherever? (and remember, if max is doing the driving, you'll also need to find a big rig & a tow bar; max doesn't drive. he only knows how to make believe.)

  6. No idea on the Isotta, but I could loan you my 1963 Studebaker Lark Regal and hand you my mother, we could slap some dark lipstick on her and wrap her up in her Persian lamb coat and you'd be in the running for a night of insane fun as I drive you about with a fake Kraut accent.

    So glad that you weren't hurt. Just remember that cars (and sweaters) can be replaced; people can't.

    Generally insurnace companies are pretty good about what happens when you bump into a deer, unless you want to keep the deer for its "venison" value. Then you get all sorts of problems - so my cousins says, and he's convinced that its a part of Obama's plot to waste perfectly good food - BLECH!

  7. TJB! I hit a deer one time, too! I was going 65 mph on the expressway when, without warning, DEER ON THE HOOD! This was in @ 1992 and my car didn't have airbags. My seatbelt saved me along with the fact that my car (a hideous Oldsmobile Achieva) had a very long hood that accordioned up, keeping the deer from coming through the windshield. I was afraid to drive for a while after.

    I feel your pain. I had bought the car THAT MONTH and hadn't yet made a payment and it was $4000 damage (15 years ago!) The deer allegedly lived. It took my license plate in it's teeth and wobbled home and hung it on its living room wall. Deer can be VERY dangerous!

  8. I completely understand the sartorial distress! I was attacked by a pitbull when I was fifteen. It shredded my favorite pair of pants. They actually made my ass look small! I was more concerned about my pants than the 20 stitches I received.

    I'm glad your unscathed...wouldn't want you to hurt that pristine face!

  12. Mistress MJ - "Why don't you drop your pocket square helplessly in front of some big ole trucker and hitch a ride?"

    I don't need a car accident to do that!

    Norma D - See MJ's comment. I'm working on that, uh, big rig.

    attc - "I could loan you my 1963 Studebaker Lark Regal and hand you my mother, we could slap some dark lipstick on her and wrap her up in her Persian lamb coat and you'd be in the running for a night of insane fun as I drive you about with a fake Kraut accent."

    Now, that sounds like the most fun I've had in ages!

    Poseidon3 - "without warning, DEER ON THE HOOD!" Exactly! Dumb animals.

    Jill - Aww, thanks, lovey.

    ilduce - You like me! You really like me!

    Jason - "around here, that's called dinner!"

    I thought that was 'possum.

    Peenee - "Anything is fresher than Norma."

    Not Steve Phillips' mistress.
