She works with an adequate amount of effort for the money...so adequate amount of effort for it, honey...

The title of this post is of course referencing my day job. The one I'm going to keep until I become a breakout country star. (My friend, Amanda, and I decided this was our true calling after seeing each other with these hairdos recently:


...and coming up with the lyrics to our first hit single "Bernanner Split" over a few hundred Bintangs one evening.)

Until then...it's business as usual, which you can read about in today's Oakton Patch Column.

I gave her a ring and she gave me the finger,
Brutalism

Oh, and here's the front view...conveniently in a sepia tone to further convey how 1953-country-singer this is. (I got a facial the day after this as I believe the 'do made me look about 20 years older. I'm still not over it...)

Sweet Jesus.

Hairstyle like THAT says a lot about a lady.

But no one can understand what is says, because of the think southern drawl.

Thick, not think.

Obviously, I am thick and wasn't "think"-ing when I wrote that comment.

I cannot believe our hair didn't fall out after that.

Bernaner split...just like my ex. He's a sumbitch. Ima gonna run him over with my tractor trailer...

I need to work on the rhyme scheme a bit more, but I think it has potential.

Please have Little Madam work up a dance routine...dual parasols.

Conway Twitty called, wants to know if you have a manager yet.

Ed - To my daughter, it said, "I can hide coins in there", which she did...

Lacochran - much obliged, ma'am, Love, Lerlene

Tante - That John Bernanner is a sumbitch. I loved him and he split. See? Genius. Lerlene, Little Madam and ? What is your country name?

Ragnar - Conway Twitty, there's a name I haven't thought about in a while. Like in the three minutes I've been at the computer and not looking at the Conway Twitty posters on my bedroom walls...

I knew you and Canetto were made for each other when your discovered your matching Conway Twitty posters.

--Vonda

(Vonda and Lerlene has a ring to it, no?)

Brutalism said...

Vonda - I like it. The name will scare Tard as much as the hair and eyebrows...

1. I LOVE the hair almost as much as the photos of the hair.

2. "So what if there is never a movie made about me and my work?" Are you MAD?!!! There are SO MANY movies about your work:

The Hangover
Spinal Tap
The Big Lebowski
Old School
Pee Wee's Playhouse Christmas Special
Animal House
Legally Blond

and most recently Bridesmaids (the airplane scene).

Give me one enjoyable flick about government middle management. One.

Brutalism said...

1. Dear Kath - the only thing the look was missing was a DSS

2. You make a fair point. 'Cept you forgot that timeless classic, "From Justin to Kelly"...

I for one am VERY impressed with both the hair and the photo. It should be titled, 'Classy & Sassy: Because if you don't have the sass, you don't have the class.' OK, maybe that title needs a little retooling.

I LOVE this post! And more modern women should be wearing their hair this way.

Sepia becomes you. It's also good for vampires. Wait.
