The Many Moods of Farrah

cue Charlie's Angels music [ + zoom ]

I spent a chunk of the day moving things around the studio. Loading up the car with flat stacks of cardboard. Making mental note of stock levels and shipping supplies. And sorting things into piles.

So many piles.

I think Tom is secretly bringing out bins of stuff in the middle of the night.

Which, if they contain things like the above pictured "The Many Moods of Farrah," I am not only cool with it, I would encourage such additions.

I think he got this box of Farrah Fawcett doll heads a long time ago at Urban Outfitters, which I had no idea was run by a very wealthy conservative. I suppose I shouldn't let a CEO's politics bother me, but it does. (and I'm well aware it goes both ways.)

In a not so similar vein, did you hear that one about Wal-Mart telling managers that a Democratic win this presidential election would be perilous? This bit of commentary by Daniel Gross on Slate sums up why this might not make much sense:

...during Clinton's presidency, Wal-Mart's stock more than tripled. By contrast, Wal-Mart executives polled in 2000 would have been exultant at the prospect of two George W. Bush terms, especially if they were to be coupled with mostly Republican control of the House and Senate. And yet this decade has been a lost one for Wal-Mart shareholders: In the Bush years, the stock hasn't budged at all. [ source ]
Funny how that works out.

These political notions might put Farrah in a perplexed but affable mood, because that's how I like to imagine she rolls.

Noted Chuck,

I need to find the article. It didn't seem to paint a picture where every Walmart had this go down, but I'll verify and adjust.

I have a box of Farrah heads next to my medicine cabinet. They stare at me as I floss.
