Am I too old to be a hussie?

According to the inside sentiment we should be hussies before it's too late!

The fabulous Julie gave me this card. Do you think she's trying to tell me something?

The woman on the right looks like she has cornered the market on hussy.

She's got a fur stole, big earrings, and a pink tasseled yurt on her head.

No leopard skin pillbox hat for her

And get a look at the slutty looking buckle on the blonde's hat.

I bet they're smoking off to the side.

The blonde has a full fur coat. Doesn't she know that real fur is unethical and inhumane?

Dig the tarted up blusher on both women. They probably keep the cosmetics industry in business.

I can't be consider a real hussy because I don't wear fur (or leather for that matter. Try to find shoes, ladies. No easy task.) My cosmetics budget is non-existent and though I love me some hats, pink tasseled yurt is not on my radar. My morals seem to be above board also. Damn!


P.S. So the people at Hallmark won't call the copyright police I had better say that this is a Hallmark Shoebox card. Printed on recycled paper. I am personally happy about this because I'm so eco-friendly. Julie on the other hand wants to leave a carbon foot print the size of Manhattan, damn it! Cuz, that's the way she rolls.


  1. Girl, we're never too old to tap into that "inner hussie" that we all have lurking within us :)

  2. Definitely not too old to be a hussies. There's still plently of time for being a tart if you so desire.

    Happy birthday!

  3. Reggie: "inner hussie" that is too funny.

    K: This was my valentines card. I wish it had been my birthday then I could have had cake.

  4. Love it! My 20-something-year-old daughters always give me these cards for birthdays, Mother's Day, etc., and they are hilarious. I'm so glad Hallmark has gotten past the flowery-frilly-white cardstock phase.

  5. That's a yurt? Wow, I thought someone had drizzled hot fudge all over her. That would really make her a hussy.

  6. Love the card, love your take on it!

    I enjoy reading your blog, and so I have an award for you over at my blog!

  7. I'm glad I wasn't born back then when men wore suits all the time. Sure it looked good, but it had to be a pain in the ass.

  8. Hmm, drizzling hot fudge on ourselves or drinkin' pink fizzy things. . . Tough call!!

  9. Funny stuff! Thanks for stopping by my place and leaving a comment. I'm off to checkout more of your blog!!!

  10. Hussiness is timeless! Embrace your tarty self! I do!

  11. You can't be considered a real hussy? I beg to differ.

  12. Wait, are you calling me a hussie? If so, thanks. So is today your birthday for realsies? Mine is tomorrow! We could be twins.

  13. It all depends on the degree of for me I choose to be a brazen hussy. Yeah. I also enjoy being a strumpet on certain days.

  14. I'm glad you explained that the hat was called a yurt. I was thinking of it as a 'blerk'.

  15. I am not going to be original this time, so all I am going to say that your blog rocks, sad that I don't have suck a writing skills
