Friday's Feast Addendum: Eat Dessert First!

366478-505306-thumbnail.jpgI've heard of the C___ F___ M_ pumps, but this chick just came up with the "Eat Me" wedding dress.

Meet Viktoriya Shtefano, in her wedding dress of 1,500 cream puffs, designed by her chef husband.  (Did you ever, as a kid, turn off the lights in your room and take a running dive into your bed??  Imagine these two on the wedding night.  He probably slid right off her and into the wall!)

I dont' have time to explain, but ever since I've started this blog, I've wanted to post a tribute to Dolores Erickson

Long ago, Dolores was The Woman Who, upon my seeing her, gave me my first inkling that things were gonna get good when I grew up.  I'm not about to get into the debate over whether sexual orientation is genetic or by influence, but if it's the latter, I've got Dolores to thank.  For those who don't recognize the name, click here for the image that launched me on my way.  I first saw it, as best I can tell, on the cover of a reel-to-reel album when I was about 5 or 6.  The album was released 40 years ago! 

So congratulations Viktoriya.  Don't forget to freeze part of the dress for your fist anniversary.  And thank you, Mrs. Erickson, wherever you are!  If I only knew where to send the card...
