Apropos of nothing, other than a comment yesterday regarding Lady Ms proclivity for large bows, Im doing a holiday weekend re-run of this Buttons and Bows post from 2011. It seems a long time ago doesnt it? Whod of thunk at the time that this was as good as it was going to get?
Any-hoo, if nothing else I think youll enjoy the Wons do-si-do dance steps. Welcome to the not-yet-way-back-enough machine.
ORIGINALLY POSTED SEPTEMBER 12, 2011
It is amazing isnt it, Lady Ms special gift? She can lighten the mood of any event. Take yesterday for example. What would have been just another somber day of remembrance was brightened considerable just by Lady Ms presence.
For the occasion she chose an appropriate wardrobe of buttons and bows gauged to present a nice balance between consolation and cheeriness.
We ended our day by attending the Concert for HOPE (not a campaign event) at the Kennedy Center. The concert was originally scheduled for the Washington Cathedral, but as you recall the church was damaged in the earthquake that Bu-rocked our world a couple of weeks ago:
Suicidal angels at the National Cathedral plummeted to the ground, apparently in solidarity with the Teamsters
To cap off our busy day of service Lady M tied herself all up in a big bow. Or a knot. Or a bowknot. Whatever. It was big.
Bows can be a fashion icons signature, and for awhile Lady M thought it might be hers, as well as Arethas.
Butt then we switched to backwards sweaters, boob belts and bangles.
Anyway, throughout the day of remembrance and service, MO tried to keep things on a light note by relying on musical themes to convey an air of cheerful celebration while she was performing her national service. Her two themes for the day were Buttons and Bows and, with a bow to Americana, Square Dance Patter.
Two are not like the other two (H/T: Gerard)
Youve already seen the bows, here are the buttons.
Here is the rest of the day, set to square dance patters
Swing your partner Round and Round
And turn your corner upside down.
Right foot up and a left foot down,
And make that big foot jar the ground
Bow to you partner and the corner miss,
To the opposite lady just blow a kiss
Old Ida Red she ain't no fool,
She can put a saddle on a hump back mule
Promenade round that ring so fine
Till the cows come home
And the Oxen-dine
Same old boy, same old route,
Good old shoes that won't wear out
Some girls are pretty, and some are not,
But boy, you're stuck with the one you've got
Swing with Mary, swing with Grace,
Allemande left with old Prune Face
The little banty rooster told the little banty hen,
I'll meet you around the corner at about a half past ten
We don't care just how we look,
'cause we're gonna have our picture took
A right and left around the ring
While the roosters crow and the birdies sing
Comb your hair & button your shoe,
promenade home like you always do.
Seriously, nobody knows how to do service and remembrance quite like the Wons.
Except maybe Frasier. So extraordinary, unexpected and smile inducing was Lady Ms musically inspired ensemble, that one of my bosses over at RIGHTNETWORK, co-founder and noted psychiatrist, Dr. Frasier Crane, performed a tribute to her fashion statement, by singing his signature piece from the Oscar winning movie, Paleface.
Oh yeah! I think were getting the old band back together for one more gig!
TODAYS RE-POST WAS BROUGHT TO YOU BY RERUN VAN PELT:
That’s RIGHT! The improbable fashion reign of blob belts is nearly at an end :D
Dang it, I was going to post the Frasier clip when I read the headline!
moochele is spectacularly ugly. And it has nothing to do with her being black — there are many beautiful black women.
It is the blackness of her soul.
Undoubtedly her soul is black but her gender remains in question.
Something and something, and buttons and bows!
