After a spirited exchange in comments on one of Barely Texan’s last blog entries regarding the disappearance of former model and blogger, Blunt Beaumont, I decided to bring Blunt in to talk about why he has fallen off the radar and I am giving him the opportunity to redeem himself.
However, before we have Blunt join us, let’s talk about me. Me. What I am wearing because really, isn’t that why you’re here? Start with this luscious snakeskin dress form AvaGardner Kungler. With a sensuous curvy sheath and a sexy snakeskin texture, this mesh dress is perfect for grilling wayward models and bloggers. Paired with a darling Valentine’s Day jewelry set from Tosy Xue and the web-enhanced skin matching shoes from Nuria Augapfel and Claire Messenger, this look pops with additions of red from toes to lips. My skin is Tricky Boucher’s red lipped, red-haired beautiful Ava.
Harper: And here is Blunt Beaumont, former male model for A Passion for Virtual Fashion. Blunt, it looks like you are wearing… sweatpants and deck shoes. And what happened to your hair?
Blunt: (reaching up to touch his hair as if he forgot it was there) Oh, uh, I let it grow out and finally went into the library to find hair. You know how hard it is for men to find decent hair in SL?
Harper: So let’s get down to it, Blunt. Why is it that you are not working with me anymore? I want to hear this in your own words.
Blunt: Well, Harper.. I have given this a great deal of thought… I have decided to come clean and tell you and your many followers the whole truth about why I left you…
Blunt: I am in love. I am in hopeless irretrievably in love and tragically so….
Harper: (speechless, for once)
Blunt: For you see, Harper.. I can never be with the person that has consumed me so. Perhaps you express surprise at this point.. confessing that you never knew…
Harper: (nodding silently, totally astonished)
Blunt: Well, Harper, you wouldn’t know. You and I have grown close over these many many blog entries and it is that closeness with others that tends to blind us to the obvious….
Blunt: The one I love is brilliant, naturally. Proud and strong. A woman of great dignity and character. With red hair… beautiful eyes… Vivacious, brilliant, creative, educated, sexy…. She is everything I never knew I wanted.…
Harper: (patting her red hair self-consciously and blushing) Oh my….
Blunt: (taking Harper’s hand and looking into her eyes) Please, Harper.. I must get this out…. I think you know who I am in love with….
Harper: Blunt.. no… don’t say it…
Blunt: Harper, I MUST! I’ll never be this brave or bold again… My love makes me want to be a better man.. or at least shower and dress better.
Harper: (squeezing Blunt’s hand, reconsidering his sweat pants and nappy hair, considering if she could possibly ever find a place for him in her life, wondering how she could get him over to Dura for new hair.) Yes….?
Blunt: It’s Julia Eileen Gillard, 27th and current Prime Minister of Australia and the Leader of the Australian Labor Party. (Sighs with relief.)
Harper: (blanching and pulling her hand back in sudden realization) And.. and where did you meet, Julia Eileen Gillard, Prime Minister of Australia?
Blunt: Well, I haven’t met her yet, but I sure have tried. But you know, they have a LOT of security at the G20. And her partner is quite a strong man for a hairdresser. That’s why my… (indicates his head) .. hair is like this.
Harper: (nodding, stunned, bewildered) Yes… ok. Well I think we should wrap this up. I think I know too much.
