He Wasn’t Really Mine

He Wasn’t Really Mine published on 1 Comment on He Wasn’t Really Mine

I can sympathize with the Blonde in a Red Dress trying to drown her sorrows in a giant ice cream sundae, but what I can’t quite figure out is her odd fashion choices on this cover.

Third Time’s the Charm

Third Time’s the Charm published on No Comments on Third Time’s the Charm

It took all week to rehearse the scene, but the editor finally got the romantic cover scene he was hoping for.
(Too bad it got wasted on a confusingly punctuated title like “Little Miss Nobody Wild — By Reputation And Other Fascinating Love Stories”)

The cover editor wasn’t satisfied with yesterday’s cover and insisted they keep trying the scene until they get it right. This made the Blonde in a Red Dress become even more bored.

Jet Fury #17

Fly The Friendly Skies

Fly The Friendly Skies published on No Comments on Fly The Friendly Skies

The Blonde in Red finally returns home from her overseas vacation, after her flight was delayed by a case of “jet fury” (the airborne equivalent of “road rage”.)

Sorry for the delay in posting. The Blonde in a Red Dress got caught up in work while on vacation and was thus a little late getting back home from her globetrotting holiday.

The Blonde in a Red Dress has a vacation day off, but good ol’ Smilin’ Ed promised he’d find a suitable temp replacement. I’m sure the readers won’t even notice a difference!

Blonde in a Red (Patterned) Dress: Casual Friday?

Blonde in a Red (Patterned) Dress: Casual Friday? published on 1 Comment on Blonde in a Red (Patterned) Dress: Casual Friday?

The Blonde in Red spends the day at the fair relaxing out of her typical solid red uniform, and trying out an eye-searing mashup of checkerboard polkadots instead. (No wonder the poor kid holding the prize ribbon is so confused; he’s probably been half-blinded by the fashion mashup.)

The Blonde in Red usually isn’t this ditzy. Maybe she’s just a bit loopy from the dry cleaning chemical fumes?

Blonde in a Red (Patterned) Dress: Canoes by Moonlight published on 1 Comment on Blonde in a Red (Patterned) Dress: Canoes by Moonlight

The Blonde in Red was disappointed to learn that her new dress ranked so low on the Helen-o-meter. (If Helen-of-Troy is the quantifiable beauty standard for launching one thousand ships, then launching only four canoes would register a score of only four Milli-Helens. That’s science!)
