remember that book the witches by roald dahl? remember the movie? that movie frightened me to no end. anyway, in the book, witches are all organized to rid the world of children and lead by the grand high witch. unhappy that children still roam the earth, the grand high witch devises formula 86 that will turn whomever drinks it to a mouse. to get this to children she plans to traffic it through sweet shops run by other witches. long story short, people get wise and the witches end up with a taste of their own medicine…literally. now, to recognize a witch there are some tricks to follow-they wear gloves to hide their claws, shoes to hide their toe-less feet (aka no sandals/peep toes), they wear wigs and they have purple eyes. the grand high witch is described as very glamorous while incognito and hideous under the surface…go figure.

following suit to the wendy post yesterday, here is peter pan. of course, he’s grown up a bit…even though that’s technically impossible. of course, peter is much more suited to spring 2010 than fall, but what can ya do. not much else to say.

oh medusa, she was one nasty customer. she was a gorgon-essentially the mean girls of greek mythology. if you messed with a gorgon, the outcome was usually pretty bad. in medusa’s case, if you looked her in the eyes you would turn to stone. ouch. eventually, perseus aided with a mirrored shield, winged sandals and an invisibility cloak (deathly hallows of greek mythology anyone?) defeated her and chopped her head off. too bad so sad.

continuing with the music theme, let’s look at roxanne. for those of you not familiar, she’s the subject of the police’s song roxanne. she is a hooker and it’s about a man who’s in love with her and saying the hooking part of her life is over. the song is posted below for your enjoyment. she’s actually not the first hooker to show up on textbook either, lady marmalade is around here somewhere. anyway, this one was pretty interesting because it’s kind of hard to look at clothes and ask yourself, “would a hooker walk the streets in this?” although i would say that this roxanne would’ve been the best dressed streetwalker on the corner. lots of short dresses, fur and crazy shoes to be seen.
