Mixing Business With Leather

I realize that I may be inviting all kinds of creepy attention to my blog with that title, but isn't it great? It's a line from a Beck song called Hollywood Freaks that popped up on my iPod (working fine so far) playlist this morning while I was on the treadmill. Then later I was shuffling around some papers in my top desk drawer and came across the business card of the nice lady that sold us our loveseat a couple of years ago. Our leather loveseat. Coincidence? The woman herself was a bit leathery and wore lots of turquoise jewelry. But the best part is her name:

Bunny Leatherman

She wasn't on my list either. How did I miss that? Of course she is on it now.

I wonder what other kinds of leathery things will come across my path today. My neighbors (the elderly lesbian snowbirds) Pat and Kay haven't left for Florida yet, so maybe I'll stop over and say hey before they leave for the season.

PS, Don't type in "leathery skin" in a Google Images search. Just don't.

I don't think I could stand to see any images of leathery skin right now. Thanks for the tip.

I was looking for pictures of women that look like my neighbors and snapped up leatherface the chainsaw guy so I wouldn't have to look any further.

Thanks, Stepping! I'm thinking of changing the tag line underneath.

I am sure Googling "leather" yields some interesting results. While at work, I was putting together some ads to advertise life and medical insurance and accidently googled "nurse."

I am pretty sure that I can't use THOSE kind of pictures for the ad.

p.s. Seeing the picture of Leatherface reminded of the one scene in the sequel where he charged into the room of a radio station and skimmed the top of the head of his metal-plated skulled brother. His brother's response was:

"Leatherface, you b****h. You tore my Sonny Bono wig."

classic schtuff.

p.p.s. Nice blog you got here.

Thanks for stopping by 67 and please do so again anytime!

PS - I have never seen a "Leatherface" movie. I can't watch movies featuring people being either violently humiliated or graphically chopped to bits, so I will take your word that the scene was classic.

PPS - I'm always amused by a Sonny Bono reference.
Thanks again!!
