Fashionable Gypsy Scholar
I guess that Gypsy Scholar is all the rage now, for I discovered a morning or two ago that my blog is being 'followed' by a fashion model . . . maybe even two of them, as we see from these two images:
I know what you're all thinking:
"Well, of course, fashion models read Gypsy Scholar! Everybody who's anybody reads Gypsy Scholar!"True, but they don't usually officially 'follow' my blog. My seven other followers don't look like fashion models.
So . . . I checked the first fashion model above. She's the one actually linked as following me. Her name is Annalee Noir, and she has a blog: Noir: A Fashion Blog. The other model -- who I think is Edward Cullen (also an actor) -- doesn't officially 'follow' me, but I'm assuming that he must be an unofficial follower.
At least, I did think these things . . . that Cullen and Noir were fashion models following my blog . . . until I looked a bit more closely at the Noir site:
Annalee Noir is also known as "Annalee Hodges."That set my mental gears whirring. Did I have a cousin named "Annalee"? I certainly have a lot of Hodges cousins, far too many to keep track of. But the name "Annalee" for a cousin struck no bells. But suddenly, something began to click. Annalee Hodges looked familiar.
"Gazer," I thought.For a moment, I wondered why I'd thought that. But I knew that I'd met Annalee somewhere.
"Oh, of course," I realized, "she's Justin's wife."Justin (the second 'model' above) is my nephew, son of my brother Tim. Gazer is his band. I met Annalee in Arkansas just over a year ago, in February of 2008, when I took my wife and kids to my hometown of Salem. Justin introduced me to her.
But they still look like fashion models to me. You can find more images at "Annalee Noir's Photostream," on Flickr, including photos of the band Gazer. The band also has its own website, where you can listen to some of its music: Jim Morrison and The Doors, at least for me.
Consider this entry a plug for Gazer.
