Re: The Memories

I have a long-standing massive crush on Williams. Do not try to defile her with your weird death obsession.

Don't worry Tim, you can continue masturbating to her until she kicks the bucket.

She also sells swimsuits!

I have a distinct memory of having heard that she's LDS, but neither Wikipedia nor her website mention it.

I can't see her name without thinking of "Esther Williams at the Lapin Agile," which comes from this very funny piece in the NYRB.

You should send Tim one of your grottoshirts.

JM, this page, which--note to LB's kid--doesn't look massively reliable, says that she's not a Mormon.

4 makes me want to cry, because those are EXACTLY the kind of suits I want, and she DOESN'T DO THEM IN BRA SIZES. :(

Esther Williams did not wear a rashguard, Ogged.

Did you ask the seventysomething guy's opinion on rashguards? I'm sure he has one.

I misread this and thought you were being sarcastic to ogged, saying "this swim crap is charming."

No, but I did ask the guy who has one and he said that it's uncomfortable and that it rides up and gives him a cummerbund tan around his middle.

20: sweet!

You could get one of those full body suits. Then put LEDs in your goggles and antennas on your head and convince Glenn Reynolds you're his future robot self!

I can see a bra-size problem with the sheath, but wouldn't the bandeau be adaptable?

oh, Ogged, give it up and get a leotard. It won't ride up and you can wear your Speedo thing over it so it won't look girly. Not that they ever looked girly on Baryshnikov.

Looks like it'll be the fast skin for me, just as long as I can get "Look out, old lady" emblazoned on the front and back.

My mother, b. 1918, had a crush on Baryshnikov. "He can have me any time" she said around 1990, after the end of the mourning period for my father.
