such are the preferences of men...

... a good friend once told me; men practice on blonds and marry brunettes, but it's those beguiling raven haired girls you have to watch out for.

No hunny, I didn't see that red head wearing the green shirt, blue jeans, green shoes, with diamond earings, blue nail polish, and the blackberry phone, what are you TALKING ABOUT?!

My wife doesn't worry about other women... unless they have certain accents :) Your obsession over the Swiss Guards is on par with my obsession over the russian and polish accent :)

Shark Bait said...

Don't look at me. I'm only in it for the redheads. :-)

PaxetBonum said...

Yep, it's all true. And redheads are always a wild card.

Pretty lady. Are those peacock feathers attached to her headdress?

Yup the raven haired girls were the ones that used to send me head over heels.

I'm Chinese. I too am unhappy that you wide-eyed barbarians are taking our "raven-haired" women. See this video for details.

Joe, I have a thing for accents too. I can not be around a Irish or Scottish brogue without losing all composure.

My very favorite Ladies in all the world have GRAY hair! They are 65 or older and have earned every one of them!

aka the Mom said...

I'm with you on those brogues. I get weak in the knees just thinking about it.

Just another mad Catholic said...

so assuming your next hairstyle isn't completeley mad we can assume that all the men in the world will be dropping dead of heart attacks when you walk by?

Lola said...

Well, recently at the mini family reunion, I became aware that all the women I'm related to married raven haired men.

And we did good.

BTW, I thought you might enjoy the very best Scrubs evah:

Lola.... you know how much I heart Zach Braff. :-D

Just another mad Catholic said...

NOOOO not Zach Braff !!!!

BTW does anyone know what colour of Jesus's hair?

Denita said...

I hate to disagree, but every man I have cared about left me for a blonde.

Lola said...

I posted that scrubs clip with the yummy Colin Farrel. Yum.

There is something for everyone in Scrubs.

(I love the most to Laverne at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvTvsTJ8kOI.)

My eldest daughter tells me U2 would be nowhere in Christian music if it weren't for the accent. :-) She says, "Where the streets have nah name" in an imitation accent that cracks me up.

re:redheads..

When I was in Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm I worked with a gal that could have been the twin sister of Nichole Kidman...,tall, long flaming red hair, sea green eyes, clear white skin, gorgeous..the Saudi men went gaga over her :) They kept insisting to speak to her husband back in the state to negotiate a "purchase" price...they would say whatever her husband set they would double it...and they were offering MILLIONS of US dollars..she would get quite flustered over the whole thing..even the fact that she had three kids didn't slow them down..

I told her once "Ya know--there's worse things in life..you'll have money, nice house, nice clothes, maid, chauffer, your kids will go to the best schools, you'll never do without and you'll be treated like a princess.. This Prince Charming just dresses in a white sheet instead of riding a white horse.."

I wonder if she ever had any regrets, not going with the Saudi..

...and if you have any little girls with Prince Charming, they will be horrifically mutilated at a party without anesthetic when they are about four years old, and if you divorce him, you'll have to leave the little girl with him, and you'll have to cover yourself up all the time when you go out to the point of getting a Vitamin D deficiency.

But hey, we all have our problems.

(Run, lady, run back to your nice American husband!)

I like them too. It gives that smart look. I wonder why dark haired women deemed to be smarter though?
