I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fails, my share of losing
And now as tears subside
I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way
Oh, no, no not me
I did it my way

For what is a man, what has he got
If not himself, then he has not
To say the words he truly feels
And not the words he would reveal
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

Worst of 2004...Worst Dress

Now far be it from me to attack another woman for her style choices...oh, who are we kidding?? *flashes fashion police badge* And since I shared my picks for Best Dress 2004, it's only fair that I give Worst Dress 2004 equal airtime.

Paris, Britney, Ashlee, Christina - that was just too easy. We've come to expect those tramps to dress badly. For the most part, these are women who typically look quite stunning, but made some very, very bad choices this year.

So on with the show. Who had the Worst Dress in 2004?

OK, technically - not a dress. Still. Ugly. Beyonce, what has happened to you? You used to be so attractive. Now you look like a cheap hooker. Posted by Hello

Jennifer Garner, I'm not your biggest fan. Your dimples just don't charm me. Still, I must admit that in the past you have dressed yourself quite nicely. This, however, is a travesty. I love what the Fug girls called you - "Karate Bride." Other critics accused you of stealing your grandmother's tablecloth to wear to the Emmy's. Tsk. *shakes head sadly* Posted by Hello

Note to SJP: Do not wear dresses that make your boobs look like two little hard tennis balls. This is not a bad dress, but it looks horrible on you. Posted by Hello

OK, I know I said the cheap tramps were too easy (ha ha pun intended!) and that this was limited to usually chichi girls, but so what. It's my blog and this dress COULD NOT BE LEFT OFF THE LIST! Holy shit, what is wrong with this girl? Sad thing is, I believe she actually fancies herself as quite the princess. Posted by Hello

It was so bad I had to show another view. Notice the cathedral train and the FLOWERS ON HER ASS!! Posted by Hello

Now this one would qualify only it appears that she actually forgot to wear said dress. Posted by Hello
