One of the few times I wish I had more than one source photo. This could've been a multi-parter!
Made this for Maxine LeStrange, who has a 2 for 1 caption return offer if she is placed in a pink outfit for the rest of the month. A bonus caption if its a black polka dot on pink dress. Figured I would do that as I was looking for inspiration. She has a thing for mannequins too, and when I saw this picture, I knew I could work with it.
Hope everyone is having a good Valentine's Day weekend. Saturday night sucked for us as the hallway hard-wired fire alarms in our apartment building went out due to the frigid temperatures .. for five hours straight from 3:30 AM to about 8 AM .. and has been going off every half hour since until we can whisk the cold air away from the sensor, usually without success.
Needless to say I am cranky and irritable today, but made the best out of the situation by booking a hotel for Valentine's Day in between blasts of fire alarm. Can't really afford it but we got a really good rate for a place that lets you stay until NOON! WOOO! So we'll be getting our beauty sleep, while the neighbors .. not sure what they are going to do.
Also, as far as I know, we did NOT get a visit at all from the police or fire department! That is the most interesting part of all of this! Then again, they had to come last year for the same thing so perhaps it is in their records to not visit our place if it is cold out!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: Are you doing, or already done something for Valentine's Day? Was it a fun holiday or a soul-sucking void of despair? Let us know what you did, and if it was more fun than fire alarms for 4 hours straight!
