So...was I channeling Marilyn Monroe....

...or was it really, just a wacky kind of Wednesday?

This morning was one of those "Hot damn, but I feel good!" kind of days.
Take one good hair day....
toss in a really good night's sleep (think cool and not sticky!)
then....put on a new summer dress that was not only incredibly cheap (Thanks again, Lila-doo!) but also looked really good on me....and maybe even
put on a pair
of slinky new "undergarments"...
then to make it all come together as I am walking down the street/sidewalk/stairway, put this song in my head....
and you have the makings for, what I like to call, my
equivalent to John Travolta's "street strut".
(you know...from Saturday Night Live)


Wednesdays, I have one class in the morning that I have been teaching for a little over 5 years. They are a group of 25 (yeah, I know...big!!), but they are one of my all-time favorite classes and I love them. They make my week!
So...today...by three different people...at three different times...I was told,
"You look like Marilyn Monroe today."
Okay. I KNOW that I don't look like Marilyn...it's the hair...it was the dress...and probably a bit of the 'tude, too.

No....my looking like Marilyn Monroe (as with Meg Ryan, Princess Diana oh, yeah..uh huh I've been told that! and Goldie Hawn), I'm thinking it's more of a
"from the back...at a glance...in the dark...
after three shots of tequila" kind of looking like Marilyn.
(or Meg or Di or Goldie)
But today.....today was different.
Honey....I WAS Marilyn. Swear to you, now.
(I was even wondering if there was an air vent to stand over...you know...to test the idea. Something tells me that it was probably a good thing I didn't find one!!
The fan in our house worked just fine!! :-D )

Gosh....I wonder who I'm going to be tomorrow.......

So.....if you could channel someone....

who would it be??

You made my day. I love this...you are so darn cute.
I don't know who I will be tomorrow, but I hope she won't be wearing gym shorts and an old tshirt!!!

You make a lovely Marilyn! I'll have to think about who I could channel. Someone cool (literally), because I'm too darn hot today.

That's great!

I channel Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly every now and then.

you go Marilyn!

That picture of you is an exact copy of Marilyn!!!

Being Swedish I'd channel Ingrid Bergman.

I would venture to say you are a lot more emotionally healthy than Marilyn was!

You look great.

Hawt honey, that's what you are! Those photos are killer. Do they whistle at people in the streets of Japan? Because I would think you'd cause quite the scene!

On Sunday nights and Tuesday nights I'd really like to channel Mia Hamm! (Yes those are my soccer nights)

How about Katherine Hepburn? Or Maude from Harold & Maude? That would be cool!!!
