The Manolo Week in Review

Manolo says, here is the best of the week from the Manolosphere.

Izzy…

If women love a man in uniform, they must surely lurv a man in half of one…

Patri…

Un secreto: a todas nos gusta usar zapatos “divinos de la muerte” como los suyos, no le resto mérito, pero que a su vez sean prácticos y estéticos.

Plumcake…

Dane Cook: I AM A LLAMA IN A UNITARD! POW!

Mr. Henry…

Thus diet dominates life. Like a train wreck, the expanded waistline collides with the blue jeans which in turn degrade personal hygiene and shatter self-respect.

Raincoaster…

Oh yeah, I can totally see Gwen Stefani and JLo sending the assistants out to buy this stuff (then having their PRs “leak” it to the media).

Diable…

Ingredientes:

*Los implantes de su preferencia
*Mucho cabello artificial previamente teñido
*’Harto’ botox
*Colágeno en abundante cantidad

Francesca…

When Francesca was perhaps 11 or 12 years old, her Aunt Bianca came from America with a gift for Francesca: a book in English called Nothing’s Fair in Fifth Grade.

Diablesse…

A veces hay situaciones que no encuentran entendimiento y que dejan en los labios el sabor amargo del paso de los años.

Spirit Fingers…

If Mischa Barton’s doing it then it’s definitely worth slavishly copying too!

Never teh Bride…

Furthermore, a lot of gentlemen are not at all concerned with the outward appearance of their domiciles. All they want is a roof that doesn’t leak and working appliances.

Glinda…

I do care about the education my son receives. I care a lot. But do I care 550 dollars a month care? I’m not sure.

Twistie…

I’m a great believer in the concept that a wedding will cost precisely what you are willing to spend on it.

    I especially love the one about trying to decide if she “$550 a month cares” about her kid’s education. Because there’s super-drama here in CA right now about all these parents who claim they super-care about their kids’ education… so they’ve been “teaching” them illegally, sans credential. Because the MEAN OLD PUBLIC SCHOOLS will teach their kids about EVOLUTION and HOMOSEXUALITY iamnotevenkidding. But they won’t PAY for a private school. Or club together with other parents and pay to start their own school. Or to have a credentialed teacher come homeschool their kids. No! Their children MUST NOT BE EXPOSED TO ANY OTHER IDEAS! NOBODY MUST TALK TO THOSE KIDS!
    So it’s nice to see a parent who actually gets what her choices are and consider whether or not she wants to invest money in her kid’s elementary school or just use good public schools.

    Be CAREFUL! Some of those homeschoolers will cut you! Sometimes I wonder if their children ever meet anyone they aren’t related to.
