I went to a lunch for LivingProof at the Bryant Park Hotel. They’ve got some new product called a primer that says it’s going to make your hairstyle last two times longer. A scientist explained how this worked, but there was also a picture of a model that had Veronica Lake-like hair so I spent the entire presentation thinking about how much I’d like to be friends with Robert Osborne. I thought about the kind of conversations we’d have. Great ones, probably! A lot of them would probably be about how Preston Sturges is truly a master of the art of slapstick.
This is the product they were introducing. It’s available for $20 at local Sephoras. I’ll try it out for you and see if it actually makes my Veronica Lake style last two times longer:
This is a picture of Veronica Lake’s hair:
At the end of the luncheon the scientist asked if there were any questions and, as I always do when I’m in the room with any scientist, I wanted to ask why there were no hovercars. Does it have a lot to do with city planning? I know we have the technology. I bet it would just be hard regulate so hovercars weren’t crashing into one another left and right, because there are no stop signs in the air.
“How is this different than other frizz products?” someone asked, and although I was not paying attention, I knew that had been the scientist’s entire speech, so I guess I wasn’t the only one having pretend conversations with Robert Osborne.
Then I went to get a complimentary spray tan at Spa Merge. You can also get a complimentary tan! Tonight! Do it!
It’s always awkward making conversation with people when you’re naked. I think that’s the most awkward thing about going to get spray tanned. That and the little paper underwear they give you.
It looks good, though. The tan. Not the underwear. The underwear isn’t a look.
