And I'm the one you wish you were kissin'

What? You don't eat pie after 6:00P? Even if said PIE is fresh and super sweet and perfectly flaky? You'll have some. I'd never heard of Tristan Prettyman before last night, but babies, she is super fine. She was the opening act for Chris Isaak last night and I'm a little bit in love with her. She came out in a fluttery summer dress and flip-flops, toting her acoustic guitar. And that was the extent of her gig. No band, no lights, no plugs, no fuss. I'm a sucker for an earnest singer/songwriter. I'm a sucker for some clean-scrubbed J. Crew-ness. I'm a sucker for freckles.Isn't she adorable? As was her show. She told the story, then she sang the song. She kicked off her flips and danced around a bit. Oh, and a couple times she did this accent, which can be tricky, right? Easy to be annoying. Well, I'm not sure what she was going for with it exactly, but she totally sounded like Triumph. Trust me that on her, it was charming.Finally, she is obviously crushing on Mr. Isaak, so she was instantly relatable to me. Of course I downloaded her CD when I got home. So young and sweet and breezy. Perfect summer music. It might be THE CD for the end of my summer, if it weren't for Corrine Bailey Rae.

Oh, I'm not saying I would do her, so you can heft your melodramatic ass right back up from its tasteful settee. :) I'm just saying I think she's cute.

when i clicked on your blog link, she popped up; my first reaction was 'what a beauty".
A beautiful woman like this remains always a delight to see.

cute yeah, do her? no...

You might wanna come over and have a look at recent blog of some chicks with the Hoff and Dick Clark in the 80's i posted? Shiny, bright, dolled up girls & one with cleavage alas still not my kind... but funny to look back at ;)

You're right. Very pretty sweet young thing. But a hint of lipstick would be a nice touch here. Even natural beauty needs help once in awhile.

What a cool - and difficult to live up to name. Prettyman!?
