tongue tied


i really, REALLY want to post about my day today.  i wrote a draft.  it is, in my opinion, a hilarious romp through suburbia and the politics of household.  but i have conferred with ruggy, and i cannot.  ruggy is right. 

so i present for discussion this sticker spied on a neighborhood walk.  WHAT CAN THIS POSSIBLY MEAN. definitely a simpler approach than the tom selleck affair, but still... so cryptic... so intriguing.  and the sticker placement!  i feel, somehow, that they have chosen their street signage carefully. 

no fair googling, please to come up with your own explanation if prince circa 1979 moves you...

    1. love that flowing mane he was rocking, though.

      it reminds me of the black and white "obey" posters with andre the giant that were rampant in cities for a bit...

  3. Frankly, I'm more interested in the romp through suburbia and the politics of household. Being a reluctant suburbanite myself, I love the secrets it holds behind its polished façade.

  6. What? Meaning? Cryptic... I'm sorry... I wasn't paying attention - I was spiraling down the sensuous vortex that is Prince's eyes....

    Mm. Love that man. Also like Lavender's "Stop Your Bullshit" guess. Sounds like Prince circa 1979...

    Okay gotta go listen to some Pri - nevermind.

  7. I seriously have no idea about the Prince sticker on a sign. Maybe its a sign? Or a warning? Or maybe you just love surrealism and so find the little bits that people leave for others to find. I have a friend that once said "My job is to make people's days a little more surreal". We were in a band that never left the living room of the hippie house but we were still awesome. And I love him to death.

    Anyway, I find I often want to post great big scathing rants about my place of employment, but not only is that a BAD idea, I signed an agreement saying I wouldn't. And my friends and family read my blog. Hence my cryptic remarks that essentially say no more than "wow, this week kinda sucks. thank goodness for sewing!".

  12. SYB is the name of a new crew who have elected Prince their leader; they are devoted sybarites. Its so sad they didn't put a telephone number so we can sign up.

    Last night we were talking about Prince actually, came across this picture of him on retronaut. How can this be his high school picture and he looks younger NOW?

  15. "Sew Your Buttons"? "Steal Your Bacon"? "Steam Young Broccoli"? Am having so much fun making up answers to this acronym that I don't want to know what it really stands for. Prince SO rules.

  16. Of course I'm sure you all already knew what this is and were trying to be coy. But since I lack the decorum and modesty of everyone here...I decided to put it out there.

    This is a pass that Prince would give to anyone he wanted to have a rendezvous with after his show...See You Backstage...Of course, he would have one of his royal flunkies to deliver this pass to the lucky young man or woman and say the words "you've been summoned by his royal purpleness".

    Now as to how the sticker ended up on this sign...Well that's a story for another time.
