Trashy Friday time — update on Caron splits

This kind of thing just cracks me up. Despite whatever opinion anyone holds on this subject, the Catholic Church has had celibate priests for a millenium, and they may eventually change it since it is a discipline and not an ex cathedra proclamation, but these reporters who were supposing — since they started talking about it — they might actually change something in short order are just delusional. Good grief, there’s a reason the Vatican is in Italy, Italians take forever to do anything, and when you’re dealing with religious hierarchy, that’s an excellent thing. Do they never do their homework? Have they ever been to Italy? I love Italians, but you’ll go through three breaks and a labor strike before you can get coffee.

Speaking of people who should be celibate (the true reason for the first paragraph, I needed a segueway), FedEx is partying it up in MIami, apparently celebrating his new single status. Hasn’t Brit cut off his credit cards yet?

Nicole sent TomKat a wedding gift and a nice note. Any guesses on what the gift was? Nobody seems to know, but I think speculation would be good here.

Update on Caron split. We have the En Avion and Poivre 200 ml split full. We have close to or at least a 100 ml split on Or et Noir, but I’d love to get up to a 200 ml split. Farnesiana is actually pretty close to a 100 ml split, but it would need a few more people to get there. Not enough of anything else to be close. If anyone wanted to do a Coup de Fouet split, let me know. It’s the EDT of Poivre and is actually my favored variation. It’s quite a bit less than the Poivre, I’ll have to look up the price again.

BTW, I have the Montaigne EDT and the parfum, and the EDT is surprisingly close to the parfum and really, really lovely. It’s also a lot easier to get ahold of and much less expensive, I think about $75 or $80 for 50 mls at the Caron boutique in NYC, and they did/do have some in stock now.

Oh, hell no, Star.

    “… how do you get ashy on your chest?”

    Warning sign that her volcanoes are going to erupt.

  • Katie says:

    You know those nightmares where you’re being chased down an endless hallway with no doors, and you can’t scream, so you keep running and running but you can never run fast enough to get away?? Star Jones looks exactly like that thing that is trying to get you .@-)

  • Tigs says:

    The chest is just bizarre, but it could be a surface thing. (The world’s worst dusting powder? Many women wear that sort of thing on the chest to keep from getting sweaty…) The thing that truly creeps me out is the arms. Even her face looks utterly different, its like she’s an alien and/or member of the Jackson family.

  • Patty says:

    Victoria, agree too. She needs about a quarter inch let out of the hem she’s put in her forehead to get her eyebrows that high.

  • Patty says:

    Patricia, I’m mystified looking at her trying to figure out what she’s done. The facelift is way too tight, she’s way too thin, her arms are… I just can’t say what happened to them. She is a walking advertisement for moderation in the effort to be beautiful.

  • Patty says:

    Teri — wow! Don’t you hate how you can remember that kind of thing and can’t remember your kid’s birthday? :((

    I want on her Christmas gift list, as a minimum, that is an awesome, though fairly useless for me, gift.

  • Patty says:

    R — I absolutely agree. She was way too heavy at one time, but carrying a few extra pounds would look sooooo much better on her. She has one of those big frames. Back before menopause and my metabolism came to a screeching halt and I was at my fighting weight, I always weighed more than other people my height, fit into the same size clothes with the same measurements, and if I dieted below that fighting weight of about 135, people would get really alarmed because I gaunted out in the face and just turned skeletal quick.

    I think Star is caring too much about a number on the scale and not looking in the mirror, she looks like hell.

  • Victoria says:

    Wow, I am shocked at the photo. I only have to 2nd what violetnoir said.

  • Patricia Rojas says:

    😕 OMG what happened to her? It looks like she is imploding in on herself, the next picture will be just a head and arms. I hate to bash Star but really she is just asking for it at this point.

  • Teri says:

    Being one of those ultra-annoying people with a mind that remembers every single useless trivial factoid it encounters, I can clear up the Kidman to Cruise wedding gift. It is a $2,800 Baccarat vase from the Los Angeles Neiman Marcus store.

    (ponders how to get my name on Nicole’s gift list)

  • violetnoir says:

    Star Jones is one of the few people who actually looked prettier when she was heavy, know what I mean? 😕


  • Patty says:

    Marina, how about — “Better to be married to a drug addict in rehab than a guy who believes in little green men and pretends to not be gay by marrying ambitious young actresses.”

  • Patty says:

    Benvenuta, no deadline, really. I’ll wait until it gets full to go on it. I think I’m close to doing a 100 ml bottle split for sure, but it would be lovely if we could get to 200 mls for better pricing. You can e-mail me about it if you have more questions by clicking on the Contact Us button on the side.

  • Patty says:

    March, that’s Star Jones. You really don’t know? 🙂 Used to be on the View, lawyer-type turned talking head during either OJ or one of those big trials. Married to Big Gay Al with the multimillion dollar wedding where about everything was donated. Gastric bypass surgery, went from a big woman to what you see now. I mean, some people were NOT meant to be super-thin, they just look like hell.

    Lock up your daughters!!!

  • Patty says:

    Chaya, how do you get ashy on your chest? I’m just pondering it and coming up blank.

    Will holler if we ever can figure out how to do a big bottle of Montaigne!

  • Patty says:

    Sariah, sorry about the Star pic, but I couldn’t help myself. 🙂

    What is that stuff on her chest? I keep thinking it may be glitter or something? Except it’s not? I mean, WTH happened to her chest?

  • Marina says:

    She sent her a book called Cults For Dummies: How to Un-Zombify Yourself and Escape Before It’s Too Late. The accompanying note said, “Better you than me, kiddo”.

  • benvenuta says:

    You are seriously tempting me with Or et Noir. What is the deadline? Next week I`ll go to Zurich and I could retest it there before I decide.

    (European ladies, does anyone know a perfumery in Basel that carries Carons?)

  • March says:

    Um, who is that scary woman?

    FedX was HERE last week, with his krewe and his bodyguards at some hip club that I’ll never see. I guess he was supposed to be there to promote his album (what are they called now, anyway? promote his mp3? that sounds stupid) and instead he sat around looking important behind his bodyguard. I am not sure I could pick him out of a lineup, although $20 says somebody will be picking him out of a lineup for SOMETHING (statutory rape? drug charges?) in the next six months.

  • chayaruchama says:

    Poor Star- she’s all ashy…and cachectic, to boot…
    Seriously, Patty-
    I could go for some of the Montaigne parfum w/you- you know how to reach me !

    Hope your w/e is grand !:-?

  • sariah says:

    Gift for TomKat – a nice couch.

    scrolling down…. my eyes, my eyes! What is with Star’s chalky white chest?
