Maximum viscosity

While the promised monkey knife fight was never to materialize last night's blogstravaganza was still the best yet. While Flea-ish memories are slightly muddled due to the more rarified air east of Yonge Street (addressed at the time with a medicinal Boddington's) I have some recollection of hanging out with the cool girls from the mainstream media (who by pure coincidence also happened to be the smoking section). Organizations represented included TVOntario, CBC and a major newspaper daily which, for reasons of propriety, shall remain nameless. The topic at hand*: visible panty-lines. I realize some have chided me for my swerve from the political to the pop cultural but when in future I let these little barbs sting I shall turn to the mpeg of memory and the sight of thong underwear. So, thanks to the spirit of Kate Beckinsale for watching over me (nice one, Kate!). I now have it on good authority that for women Calvin Klein is best. Men should consider sticking to their Cake and Cigarette Diet´┐Ż, or equivalent, a bit longer before attempting the same.

*The less said about my hand the better.

The blogosphere will fact check your ass (and how) Update: Here is the thing. While I mentioned the effects of the rarified air east of Yonge on my fragile constitution I failed to mention I was still suffering some after-effects of said oxygen deprivation yesterday morning when I wrote this post. In fact, it took me the whole day to remember why the words "viscosity" and "ha!" were scribbled on a Post-It and attached to my monitor at some time in the small hours. I hope Flea-readers and any witnesses to the events described will forgive my error in reporting the benefits of Calvin Klein thongs for women.

You are forgiven for any number of reasons for muddling your facts: the one that looms largest in my mind is that you watched two women fondle ... 's microfibre thong on an outdoor patio.

In fact, Calvin's received a negative review. The clear choice as indicated by comment and private correspondence are from the No Panty Line, uhh, line by Jockey! I think. The matter may bear further investigation.

Zut! Though I hope you will understand I was distracted and in no fit state to be taking notes.
