Hey Neatnik!


You're On The Rug because being On The Road is kinda messy. And that would spell disaster for those tangerine lounging culottes.

She's like, totally reading Stephen Gaskin's book on the Farm. She's pretending she wants to get back to the land. Only I don't think they have espresso or Sears Perma-Prest loungewear there.

From Good Housekeeping, December 1968.

You'd have be crazy to lay on my rug.

Daughter said...

She seems kind of constipated, like she wants to leave the shoot to head for an hour long toilet session.

Chris - There is a lot of cat hair on ours, so she probably would not like that any more than yours...

Daughter - Yes, there does seem to be something she is brooding about...

Amy said...

LOL tangerine coloured culottes! Is that shag carpeting I see there?

Melanie said...

I don't think she's headed for the bathroom, I think she's thinking about pulling out the Sears catalog (which I'm sure is under that open book) and ordering a pair of those in lime green too.

With styles from the 70's making a comeback now, I hope these are not.

Lidian said...

Amy - If it isn't, it ought to be...

Melanie - She probably orders them for all her Christmas presents, too. Everyone's getting culottes!

Ettarose - They are certainly had better NOT be making a comeback! We will just send them off to a commune if they do, maybe.

On the road
On the rug
On the shag
On the rag
On the lam
On the move
On the hoof
On the outs
On the money
On the make
On the take
On the spot
On the dot
Our girl has plenty of options when she's wearing Sears Perma-Prest Loungewear.

Bill - Beat poetry and Sears ad, all in one...Absolutely brilliant!

Celia Pleete said...

I'm reviving the adjective + "-nik" lingo.

Lidian said...

Celia - It can be very useful, unlike tangerine culottes.

Hey, as long as it's not leg-warmers, I'm in!

KiKi said...

So random...is it a bad thing to admit that I've been lounging around perfecting this very pose and look?

Lidian said...

mrsmouthy - Oh, I remember legwarmers! And I am not going to wear them again (or culottes)...

KiKi - It's absolutely fine to lounge like this, as long as you are not wearing tangerine culottes from Sears.
