dear james,

how thoughtful of you to write me. i feel as if we know each other already, what with you calling me 'partner' and all. have you spent time in texas? i think you'd fit in. they like people with lots of money there and they're not particular about how it's earned.

i am sorry to hear that you have a "health condition". i too have a health condition, but it's "good". if your health condition is "not good", i'd suggest you settle somewhere other than the united states. people who are not in good health don't fare so well there, unless they're rich.

by the way, does your health condition affect your vision? i ask, because you say that your account is worth twenty million u.s. dollars, but on closer inspection, it reads "20.000,000". i realise that sometimes banks and currency experts use more than the standard two decimal points in order to be exact, but it's always the placement of the decimal proximate to the first digit that is important. your account is actually worth $20.

i know that in some countries, $20usd is still a significant sum, but since you indicate that there is some risk to you in moving the money, it's possible that it may be safer for you to leave it where it is. i have no doubt that an experienced businessman such as yourself would be able to raise another $20 somehow.

however, if you are determined to get your money back, i have a better proposal to make: on this blog page, there is a button where you can make a donation. i suggest you transfer the money via this means, through paypal. after all, if you do have $20 million and sent it to my bank account, you would have no guarantee that i would transfer your seventy percent once i'd received it. this way, if you don't receive my transfer, you would be able to file a paypal grievance against me. although i appreciate the trust you show me, i think that this is a better solution, in order to avoid the appearance of any impropriety. i'll await notification of your transfer.

thank you for writing to me "partner", i look forward to doing this business together.

yours in utmost sincerity.

p.s. :: i'm surprised that your bank is questioning your principles. surely that's none of their business?

p.p.s. :: given news reports of gaddafi's vast wealth, i'm afraid that he might have been screwing you a bit on your business dealings if you ended up with $20. what business were you in, exactly? just curious.

jihadvertising?

i keep seeing this ad for tictac candies:



am i the only one who finds the suicide bomber clown at the end a little unnerving? all the nice natural things like the bunny and the [extinct] woolly mammoth and the fruit get devoured by a trying-to-appear-nonthreatening-but-obviously-psychotic clown who then blows himself up. congratulations, tictac, i think this ad has landed you on about a dozen watch lists.

oh and by the way, showing me that your product will somehow cause my stomach to explode in a rainbow of wtf makes me believe that doing consuming tictacs would be a worse dietary decision than the time i ate two raw eggs and a half a bottle of hot sauce on a dare.

making faces :: getting cheeky

blush might just be the last thing that a beauty lover comes to appreciate, seeing as it can be a matter of slight degrees that separates one product from another, and it's most difficult to tell from just swatching a product how it's going to look. and it did take me a long time to appreciate that, despite loving my refined pallor and believing that my natural rosy flush was more than enough of a blush for me, blush is my friend. it softens, sculpts, perfects and, although you might not see it at first blush [yuk yuk yuk], it is something that subtly harmonises with the other colours in a look to make it "complete". yes, it's the most tricky thing to pull off when you're wearing something that doesn't mesh with your own undertones. but it's also the thing that can take a face from gloomy to glowing with a swish of the magic wand known as a makeup brush.

highlighters are an even trickier lot, since many of the more brilliant ones have a tendency to e…

making faces :: chanel's velvet realm

who doesn't love velvet? i know when i was younger, i used to, as george costanza longed to, "drape myself in velvet" and although that phase passed with time, i still think that the plush fabric has to be one of the high points of human achievement, up there with interior heating, advanced medicine and vodka. so to me, it's no surprise that one of the most hotly anticipated launches in the cosmetic world is chanel's new "rouge allure velvet" lipstick line, because even the name immediately makes me want to put it on my lips.

on a more concrete level, chanel describes these lipsticks as "luminous matte", which is sort of like the holy grail for lipstick lovers. we all want those intense, come-hither film noir lips, the sort where young men and sunlight are lost and never heard from again, but historically [including during the making of those films], applying a matte lipstick felt sort of like colouring in your lips with an old crayon that had…
