Blonde Bombshells

                                           Press photograph


They said 'Try going blonde'
When I was feeling down.
'Blondes' they said have much more fun
Than girls whose hair is brown'.
So I grabbed at the peroxide
And gave my hair a dose.
It wasn't the colour of ripened corn
But it was pretty close!
And lo and behold! I met him!
The one love of my life!
He, too, had hit the bottle
And now I am his wife!
We have a brown-haired daughter
And a little brown-haired son,
But when it's just the two of us
Boy! Do we have fun!

Otherwise known as a Mikado omelet.

An omelet is a healthy dish, it's light as any feather;
It's just the thing for a tasty snack when there is balmy weather.
But if something more substantial is called-for any time,
This rich and sinful omelet is quite wickedly sublime!
Beat eggs and milk and paprika, with seasoning, of course;
And the beating need not wear you out; you can use gentle force.
Heat oil in the frying-pan of course not over-fierce,
Pour in the mixture, remembering to take a fork and pierce.
Lower the heat. Allow the egg to form a well-cooked base;
This should take three minutes; it's quick, in any case.
Now comes the really sinful part, take dollops of cream cheese
And flop it across your omelet as thickly as you please.
Then lay sliced avocado across the omelet base,
But only half for, when you fold, it has to stay in place.
Roll over, briefly, omelet-wise, allowing the cheese to melt.
Isn't this the most delicious thing you've ever smelt?
Serve with hunks of crusty bread. You'll be filled with bravado!
For everyone will scream and shout......'We want more omacado!'

4 eggs ¼ cup milk 1 fresh avocado, sliced 4 tablespoons cream cheese
salt and pepper to taste 2 tablespoons vegetable oil Paprika

I heard a lot of joke about blonde and as a Filipina I wonder why and where it comes from (all the joke) hehe. Happy Monday!

Now that is REALLY yellow hair... A girl who worked at the daycare when my daughter was young had long blonde hair just like my Nyssa did. A little 3 year old boy had a crush on her... he couldn't say his "y's" correctly and would tell everyone "I just love Michele with 'lellow' hair." The little mischief maker finally graduated from college this May.

My girl friend was brunette, her life was wasted and kicked her husband out.
She became a blond, and went to another job so she started her life all over.
She said life was more fun, except people treated her as a dumb blond.
