"i like speed, yellow convertibles, empty churches, food, occasional parties and dancing. i detest insects, hypocrites, giggly girls, elevators, rigid conformists and men who boast of their innumerable conquests.” - connie francis
misses jamesetta hawkins and concetta rosa maria franconero have been on heavy rotation around these parts lately. they both have an uncanny ability to sing songs about the sweet splendor of love without sounding the least bit docile. in fact, they seem like the kind of girls that could drink you under the table in a heartbeat. i get the feeling they'd make great weekend companions.
