Oh that's right, I have a blog!

Hello? Anyone out there? I seriously doubt it. I should start updating this again.

Faster Farms makes the news...

From an article that was sent in an email...

Foster Farms Says OK to Foster Imposter Chicken Car Racers Foster Farms, a closely held chicken processor, won’t be siccing intellectual-property enforcers on Faster Farm car racers who will compete in the Sears Pointless race in Sonoma, California, on March 6 and March 7. The Livingston, California-based poultry producer sells products that are grown in the region where they are sold and are never plumped with salt water. On Feb. 24, when calling forthe U.S. Department of Agriculture to take a closer look at poultry labeling, Senator Barbara Boxer cited a Foster Farms consumer survey about sodium additives. Part of the 10,000-employee company’s advertising features a pair of artificially plumped chickens from Arkansas trying to pass themselves off as Foster chickens. The ragged-looking pair are known as the “Foster Imposters,” and are seen in many ads driving a beat-up blue 1967 Plymouth Belvedere with a yellow door. They also are featured on a “Just Say No to Plumping” page on FacebookInc.’s social media site. Adrian Smith of Alameda, California, decided to race his 1966 Plymouth Belvedere car in the 24 Hours of LeMons racing circuit, which includes the Sears Pointless race. The endurance race series is limited to cars costing less than $500, and features teams with such names as “Jump the Shark,” “Bad Fish Racing” and “Stoic Boxwrench.” Smith modified his car to resemble the 1967 version, and decked it out with several of the stuffed Foster Imposter figures sold through the poultry company’s Web site. Members of the team also show up wearing costumes that are modified versions of the chicken suits, although they shed them for fire-retardant gear at race time. Far from claiming trademark infringement by the Faster Farmracers, Foster Farms encourages the team in its “pursuit of greatness,” company spokeswoman Heidi White said in an e-mail. In the same e-mail, Ira Brill, the company’s director of marketing, said “this iconic race team is one classic example of the crossover of the Foster Imposter advertising characters into popular culture. We wish these Imposter fans the best of luck in their race.”

Persuit of greatness - heh heh heh! I told the guys they should have called themselves the Faster Disasters, would have been very fitting.

Okay, I suck!

I'll admit it, I'm a lousy blogger. Again, I can only use Facebook as my excuse. My weak, lame, pitiful little excuse. I promise I'll get some stuff up this weekend and I will be better at controlling my A.D.D. and pay more attention to li'l Bloggie. In the meantime, here's a little something pretty for the ladies.

Okay, maybe it's only for me, but fuck it - it's my blog.

I'll try to get some actual content up soon.

Now with even more hats!

Just a few more...

Love the colors!

Feathery, I repeat, feathery!

Awesome feather job.

Poor Princess Beatrice. Doesn't she have anyone around her who cares enough to tell there that this just looks plain silly?

Love this whole outfit.

Here's a lady who wants to make a statement.

I want my hat and purse back now!


Quoth the hat...

A lot of Thneeds could be made from this hat.

Now we're talking fun hats!

Let the fun begin!

These gals look sweet.

Is this even a hat?

Heh heh, Conehead!

Pretty and convenient when gardening.


This one is fun and it has my initials so of course I love it.

This hat is just ducky!

I really like the pink hat.

This hat isn't too funky but it is really pretty.


Well themed.

I like it, this is kooky fun.

This one looks inspired by Tim Burton. Jack Skellington should be walking along the top.

Meh, nice enough.

A very chic propeller head.

Fuschia feathers? You know I really want this one!

Very pretty!

Here's a nice spring explosion.

A bit Barbie-ish but pretty.

Hmm, um, feathery!

Really feathery!

Um, yeah.

I could find some place to wear this I'm sure. So cute!

Where's the White King? (Fusies may get that one)
I'm thinking next year I should throw an Ascot Party. That would be a hoot!

Time for fabulous hats

Ascot 2009 is here and with it some wonderfully fun hats. These are just the first I've come across (as you will see, I've 'borrowed' these pics from the awesome Getty Images), I'm sure there will be more to follow.

Definitely the most insteresting hat so far.

Not sure if this is a hat or just a flamboyant comb.

Princess Eugenie

I like Camilla's hat, not out there but really lovely.

Blog neglect

Yes, I've been shamefully neglecting this site. Again, I can only blame it on Facebook. I'll get some pics up soon and try to remember to pay more attention to my second favorite child (Facebook being the favorite child at the moment).
Here's a quick bit of girlieness (girlyness?)

I'm not sure what it is but I'm really liking outfit. I don't know who this is but I bet she had a lot of fun wearing it.

Fringe fun

A quick giggle for some folks on the Fringe Division of the Fuse.
