pick a spice, any spice

I really don't like to get on a soapbox, but today I am afraid I have to. The subject: Victoria Beckham.

You can hardly turn the TV on these days without being bombarded with images and news of the Beckham's arrival in America. Ok, ok....so he's a gigantic soccer star....awesome....but what's the big deal about Posh? Is she really that newsworthy? I am so over it all, especially the fact that she never, NEVER, smiles. Evidently its her gimmick, but really, isn't there a better one?

Quite unexpectedly, Posh also made an appearance in my sketchbook this afternoon. She's such a character already that the doodle came quite naturally. Once I finished with her, I moved on to a sketch of me with, um, Posh's assets.

In other news, if you haven't already, don't forget to sign up for the *time for presents* giveaway. Currently, your chances of winning are 1 in 30, better than the lottery and equally as gratifying!

We're just going to have to start calling you "Sugar" Spice because you're so sweet. : )

Well, THANK YOU!! We've been putting up with this for years!! I just can't bear to look at the woman anymore. EEaaaaargh! She actually makes me...ooooof...aaaarrrrrgh! So I was pleased to hear she'd be leaving the country. I thought, naively perhaps, that we may see and hear about her less. Unfortunately not. You are very welcome to her! We've had her for more than long enough.

You've got that so right! What is it with America's fascination with people who really don't bring all that much to the table except perhaps looks and papparazi... Posh Spice, Paris Hilton, the list could go on and on...

Your cartoon is perfect!

Annie said...

Oh what a perfect drawing! It looks just like her. :) Congratulations on your Blog Birthday!

It's so refreshing to know that I'm not alone in my anguish! Thanks for all your comments.

Sincerely,

Everyday Spice
