Goodbye Hanneli.

I’m sure you remember this endearing and beautifully designed banner from my sweet blog…after all, it’s right before your eyes.

Well, it’s time to say so long.

This morning, I received an e-mail from Hanneli Mustaparta (pictured left.) She was upset I had used an image from her blog on the banner of my blog even though I very intentionally placed a page below the banner called Banner Photos that OFFER PHOTO CREDIT.

Her e-mail was adorable, her English is not very good, but hey neither is mine. She said she liked the blog but would rather not be on my banner. I’m sorry Hanneli, is there something wrong with being marketed as a Man Repeller? I’ll have you know THESE HAVE BEEN THE BEST MONTHS OF MY LIFE!

My alter ego, Philip the lesbian was sweaty palmed reading the e-mail. After all, even though she is cramping the shit out of our (Philip’s and mine) style, we have a serious girl crush on the Northern European beauty. 

My other alter ego, Philip the business lesbo was all, child please this is definitely not illegal.

At the end of the day, there’s only one thing left to say. Hanneli wore a turban, I caught her, and told the world about it. When I answered her e-mail I suggested she start wearing La Perla bras instead of wang-repelling Wang sports bras. 

Just kidding, I didn’t do that. I said “sorry, I’ll take it down, I love you.”

Hanneli, if you’re reading this, I’m not mad at you, are you mad at me?

Next time you see me walking down Kenmare and Lafayette…you should toterly take my picture. I’m hip, I’m cool, I’m with it.

NEW BANNER COMING! OBVIOUSLY! STILL IN FRANCE! TTYL!

    LOLLLLLLLLLL i love how you removed her from the banner via shoddy photoshop "cut" where you could still see a bit of her shorts.

    wow. I would be so flattered to feature in someone's banner.

    Seriously, I'm telling everyone I know about your blog. Love it and love your writing. Have fun in France.

    (You could totally have a pic of me for your banner. I asked my fiance if my jumpsuits were cute at all to him and he just laughed. And when I get a phone call, I put my iPhone in my American Apparel fanny pack so I can walk around and talk with the head phones. Functional, but definitely not hot.)

    I really liked the photo of Hannelli in her turban wearing a black dress that she put on her blog. I'm sure I qualify as a man repeller – it's so nice to find somewhere you belong.
