Just in passing – your site is an absolute inspiration, a joy to giggle through. The endless parade of those 1950’s tucked and bobbed pink-petticoated good-little-housewife cartoons is both mood-lifting, delightfully nostalgic in a delightfully non-serious way, and strangely gratifying even beyond that. It was truly a stroke of genius to build your site around witty, girlishly erotic icons and fonts that so powerfully evoke the culture that most of us sissies were raised in, or at least think of with great fondness. Behind the effortless light touch in your work lies someone of brilliant insight and creativity.
In the Boring World, where trousers are still affected, I’m in the biz of website design and dev – on an enterprise Oracle-type scale. All day long I’m forced to wade my way though utter codgwallop, and pretend to clients that I’m engaged by their clueless e-commerce. How I wish I could nominate your site for the big industry awards. Each time I land there the instant kerb appeal and giggly shock of the home page seems to switch on an unputdownable turn-the-page motor, and once I again I’m lost for the next twenty minutes (ahem – yeah right . . .), chuckling again at the same stuff I laughed at yesterday.
The only criticism I have is that by your efforts you make it hard. Yes, that’s right, hard. Hard for me to look at a client without smirking, when he/she asks me to compliment their pedestrian pages. So don’t be surprised if one of these days you see one of your pink ladies play hookey – only to be found skipping gaily across . . . oh maybe the CNN home page. Although none will admit it, there will be many people browsing – Spandex-sporting sluts all – who will know instantly where she has sallied from . . .
