Weekend wrap-up.


From Living Etc.


Oh weekend. Where did you go?

I went on an overnight trip to lovely and chic Lynden, WA, where you can't buy ANY alcohol on Sundays, and also where the town loves to put up those "Abortion Kills Your Baby" signs (which make me laugh... I mean, yeah, abortion DOES kill that incipient baby. Thanks for busting out the science on your scold-y road sign).

Anyhoo, it was fun. Glad it's over, though. I don't like being more than 25 miles from a Barneys, so it's nice to be back in the soulless, heathen-filled town known as Seattle.

That was it for me. What did you do?

In other news, this is Molly Ringwald now. Discuss.

Ew, Lynden. That's almost as bad as Steilacoom or Sumner or Roy!

Sigh, I miss WA. (Tacoma boy here.)

Paris Hotel Boutique said...

Sounds great. Tell me Decorno, have you been to Spokane? Going there to visit my Dad who just moved there. Never been to Washington. What to do in Spokane?

Poor Molly.

Decorno said...

Shawn: Doesn't the "Stielacoom" sound like a native word for the cooch?

PBH: I've never been to Spokane. I think it's a college town of some sort, so I suspect you're going to have more options there vs the tiny cornfield I was in this weekend. Good luck!

jozette said...

Oh, Molly. Looks like she's following in Kirsty Alley's footsteps. Poor thing. Not poor thing because of how she looks, but that it gets splattered all over the tabloids. If that were me, I'd wanna say: just let me be fat in peace.

Decorno said...

She's not even really fat. She just needs a better outfit, I think.

kerri d said...

Ah. Lynden! I was thinking Lynwood which is nothing awesome but still basically northern city sprawl so it took me a second to catch on. I get to visit Seattle (and it's burbs where my parents live) in a week! (I've been transplanted to Nowheresville, ID by my hub these several years.)

As for Molly, I always did wonder how she got to hook up with Judd Nelson. Which reminds me of this week's Psych episode. Did you catch it? It was a nice homage to Pretty In Pink/Breakfast Club.

Molly's not fat but needs some high heels and something not quite so... patterny.

Be the change..... said...

wow, she's a hot tranny mess!! Thats really her?
I spent the weekend in lovely Pittsburgh, PA -I do not mean that sarcastically!

jozette said...

Ugh, now I feel bad. You're right, she's not fat. But the outfit needs some tweaking.

Jennifer said...

That J. Crew dress is ALL WRONG on her.

K.Line said...

Love that carpet.

I don't know what happened to Molly. She used to be so sweet and well turned out. That dress has got to go...

Anonymous said...

She's still pretty (great skin, pretty red hair, nice features, etc.). Terrible dress for her, and no one looks good getting their Starbucks in the punishing early-morning sunlight.

eM said...

Dear Molly:

Dump that uglified dress NOW.
Please replace it with a nice a-line skirt that hits a few inches above the knee - this is crucial. It can have a very small print if you must -- perhaps some nice SMALL leaf or floral pattern or swirls, in tonal, NOT contrasting colors. stay away from geometrics.
pair that with a nice v-neck top - I see a form fitting sleeveless cotton tee. Girlfriend: I feel ya where it comes to the comfy feets, but just say no to the flip flop unless you are at the beach.
a spray on tan on the legs would be a nice touch.
Also, do not leave the house without lipstick and a bit of powder.
yours in size 12 sisterhood

She's in a series now. Maybe this is one of her costumes.

I like her pale skin. It suits her.

Years happened to Molly, and a bad photo, and they will happen to me and you too. Becoming a recluse blog addict helps.

portland was nice to us this weekend. we biked and i worked on being as tan as i can before the sun goes away again.
i can imagine that molly really liked that dress when she bought it. maybe she thinks she looks hot. the picture is awkward, they could have used one where she wasn't standing like that...but seriously, why is she drinking starbucks? ugh, i thought she had better taste than that.

'Splain this to me:
What in the hell does "Hot Tranny (or sometimes "Granny") Mess" mean??????

Please advise.

becky from hatch said...

When I first saw the picture of Molly, I thought "wow, Lindsey has gained about 20 pounds in her legs." Isn't Molly a mom now? She looks fine and very far from a hot tranny mess. Frankly, I'd rather see Molly than Miley anyday! I think she needs to go on Chelsea Lately to re-instate her cool factor.

Anonymous said...

Looks fine? She does NOT look fine. Her legs look like tree trunks. Fat tree trunks.

Poppy said...

I wish I could see pics of all who are so perfect in giving their opinions on this picture of Molly...

Anonymous said...

Oh please, Molly Ringwald had "cool factor"? Those John Hughes movies might as well have been written by the PTA.

Hey I wonder what Andrew McCarthy is looking like.

He is on one of those SATC knockoff shows, Lipstick Jungle. He... well, Molly has fared a lot better, I'll leave it at that.

paola said...

C'mon. Why is everyone in denial?

She's FAT. She's at least as wide as I am and my Wii Fit says I'm obese. And there are pictures on my blog for Poppy...

That is no size 12, girlfriend.

Are those stairs Lucite?!

Poor Molly, chubby and dumpy who'd have thought?

Decorno said...

Ok, see? She looks kickass. I knew she had it. Weird bad faux Pucci dress is just not for her.

Anonymous said...

I agree with Decorno. She's still got it goin' on.

Remember the pics of Helen Mirren in a bikini last week? Someone on a blog I was reading couldn't believe that she could look that way w/o a scar somewhere.

BTW , is MR actively seeking the spotlight these days? Is there a statute of limitations on celebrity stalking?

I remain, unabashedly and gratefully,

danny boy said...

i love her! i met molly ringwald when she came into town w/ sweet charity a couple years ago. so nice. she stayed at the hotel i was working at at the time

alis said...

If her pics on the URL anon posted(which she looks gorgeous on) are actually recent, than I'm horrified by how FAT a dress can make a woman look. Because I see at least 10 lbs difference in those pictures. Even the skinny should beware!

jax said...

I like the look of the glass/lucite stairway, but it's not practical. How am I to walk up and down in a skirt and not show off the goodies? The Puma store in Georgetown has a glass stairway and catwalk and I feel slightly uncomfortable using both if I am not wearing shorts or pants.

Anonymous said...

I have a certain sympathy for her, since while she's heavier than she used to be, she's not grossly rolling down the street. Its certainly happened to me despite many bridget jones like efforts. And we are all too fond of starbucks, but that dress is too young for her and would be unbecoming on 99% of us.

Anonymous said...

Oh hell, she looks like 90 percent of America. Everybody calm down.

Brittany said...

I think she looks great, just not with that dress. It was just a very poor fashion choice.

Anonymous said...

We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all.

Mary T. said...

I love those steps! I could never keep them clean, though. (there was a picture of cool lucite steps in this post, right...?)

Lamentable House of Pig Aesthetics said...

Lucite looks terrible with wear and tear on it.

becky from hatch said...

This post is responsible for the reason I TiVo'd and am currently watching The Secret Life of the American Teenager, even though I am 36 years old. I am happy to report that even I find this show unwatchable, and I have VERY low TV standards when I'm drinking a glass of wine and I'm bored.

Anyway, Molly is looking pleasantly plump, which is refreshing for Hollywood. I would wager she could fit into a 12. I'm chunked up as hell right now and I can. Thank the lord for vanity sizing. But I guess Judd Nelson was right when he said Claire was a fat girl's name in The Breakfast Club.

As for John Hughes, his movies were incredible in the time, esp. for me, who was a seventh grader when The Breakfast Club came out. I still laugh out loud when I catch 16 Candles. Perhaps they don't stand up for people who are used to today's over-the-top pornographic standards, where 12 year olds wear colored bracelets representing all the guys they've blown.

Meander said...

I'm a little scared right now - I totally thought that picture of Ringwold was me! (minus the horrid dress of course).
But let's discuss this really. . .the girl isn't fat, chubby, yes, but in reality that fair skin is gorgeous (she is a ginger people) would someone please just sign her up for "what not to wear". Gorgeous girl, fabulous actress and we're all just mad because she isn't as perky as she was in 16 candles? please! Are any of us or any "parts" of us as perky as they were at 16? I think not.
Homegirl just needs to learn that she can't go out of the house like that - seriously, she would look better in sweatpants and a t-shirt.

Anonymous said...

"Fabulous" actress?!

Anonymous said...

Sorry Becky from Hatch,

I grew up with those John Hughes movies too, and they had no more credibility then. And I am sorry to inform you that kids were blowing each other back then too.

Anonymous said...

Shit, she doesn't look too bad. But then, I'm not a skinny gal, so I'm probably not the one to ask.

pinkstilettos said...

All I have to say is that Molly certainly does not need to be wearing that dress! Daisy~
