Still life with mannequin, bottle, Star Trek


Oh, the tragedy of the love triangle. Who will the lotion choose? The strong shoulders of the mannequin, or the lighthearted ways of the TV?

I give this a creep factor of 10.

The really scary thing is I've seen that "mannequin" thing before and it's actually a lamp. o.O Why they chose to dress it in a shawl, I'd rather not know.

Wow ~ what great lighting inside to highlight that incredibly special bottle of lotion. That took some effort, I tell you. Plus, it shows off the ceiling angles very well. Skills, lots of skills.

So here I was thinking, "Wow, that must be one heavy bottle of lotion if the effort of moving it out of the way was that much." Then I saw the mannequin in the corner and realized ...that the time had come to run screaming.

That's really just too creepy.

The BPF (Bad Pun Factor) in this listing is almost unbearable. I ... I have to go somewhere else. Like, now.

Watching you. Wherever you go. Even though it ain't got any eyes. Brr.

This reminds me, at my friends house they had a three poster bed in the guest room - fancy, no? But from the end beam, looking over you as you slept, her mother had hung a 4 foot tall clown marionette.

Yes, we're talking about a giant clown puppet, watching you as you sleep. I begged my friend to remove it, which she did, but she didn't tell me she'd just slung it in a heap outside the guest bedroom door, and I had to step over its crumpled body in the night to use the bathroom.

Brrr.

Until right now, this very minute, I was almost able to watch Monk reruns without picturing Stottlemeyer yelling about lotion in every scene. Thanks.

Glory von Hathor: Three poster bed? Is that a bed with a solid headboard and then two posts at the footboard? (I have no idea why I want to know this, but I do, and will drive myself nuts trying to picture that piece of furniture until I know, sorry!)

Also, just a guess? Your friends mom wasn't overly keen on house guests. That's combining two fairly common phobias in one, fear of dolls (a lot of people find them super creepy) and fear of clowns.

All she needed was a spider shaped tissue dispenser in the bathroom and she'd have guaranteed never having to deal with guests again.

Sorry anonymous... Four. Four poster bed. The three referred to the number of brain cells I have left after being scunnered by my neverending thesis.

But there's a market there!

And maybe a market for giant clown lamps...

So that's why my comment about the creepy cinder block "shared outdoor space" was never approved!

Sara said...

Maybe, Emily et al, or maybe it was just my incompetence. There's always incompetence!

It puts the lotion...nevermind.
