Lyda here. Pollyanna has been busy lately. Singing. Picnicing. Wantonly creating new words.
The Random Weirdness of Pollyanna
And about damn time.
1.) Apparently one of the Pollyannas has been on a picnic. In Canada. Anna-Liza, do you have something to tell us? XUP is a very funny blog. And I’m totally stealing stuff from her bucket list for mine.
Oh wait – we haven’t published ours yet. Hey, Anna-Liza – can we publish it?
I feel a bit ill. That’s what she said.
3.) Apparently, some teens are pretending to be Pollyanna and putting out this zine. We can totally understand why teens would want to be as cool as we are.
But really, we have nothing to do with this zine.
Yes, I’m sure that Anna-Liza is not involved with this. She does not indulge in bad spelling and grammar, ya’ll.
4.) Anna-Liza might be connected to this Pollyanna, though. Because Anna-Liza is a style maven, ya’ll.
Back in the day, I totally could have rocked this dress. Mmm. Cashmere. Should a dress cost this much? My whole wardrobe – if one could call the random assortment of clothing that I have a “wardrobe” – didn’t cost that much.
My psuedo-wardrobe is so bad that I think I need an intervention. Someone call “What Not to Wear” or something. Or just send me a marguerita via a cabana boy so I can forget…
But I digress…
5.) Even Doris Day wants to be Pollyanna. Just listen; it’s there.
Do I want to know what a Pollyanna flower is? Probably…
7.) Yep, all the girls want to be Pollyanna. But no one could out-Pollyanna Mary Pickford.
Unless it’s Haley Mills. Who, of course, had the advantage of speech. And color film.
8.) And all the boys want to be with Pollyanna. Even the MCRACKINS.
9.) However, Pollyanna has a dark side, and not only if you try to take her yarn. See: Pollyanna creep.
10.) So, you can see why some people think that Pollyannaism has nothing to do with knitting, quilting, cake, or zombies.
The blindly optomistic fools!
