The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

A blanket you wear

Kimberly Swygert got one of these as a gift, and she says it's "the least erotic item of women's clothing that I've ever seen."

I dunno. I'm pretty sure it's at least a couple of head-turns more interesting than the traditional burqa, especially if it's draped over a Major Babe like Dr. Swygert.

But even clothing at the other extreme has its limitations, as James Lileks once noted:

Let us be frank about the purpose of lingerie.... It is not normal clothing. It exists for one purpose: to be, eventually, visible for a very short time. If it is visible for a very long time — and I am trying to be delicate about this — then it is not doing its job.

Beyond this, deponent saith not.

So should you be addressing yourself as CG-down-Hill?

Nota bene, I'm already there, desperately scrabbling my way back up, with no indication of progress.

You don't get down from hills. You get down from geese.

Sheesh.
