Freaky Fug Friday: Aubrey O’Day


freaky-fug-friday

I’m so glad that former Fug Madness Champion Aubrey O’Day has not totally faded quietly into the good night, but continues to occasionally pop up dressed like she just fell out of a wormhole from the 70s. I’m so glad that I’m going to do a giveaway!

THE TASK:  Please name (by which I mean, invent creatively!) the 70s soft-rock band which Aubrey clearly believes herself to be fronting, judging from this ensemble.

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on MONDAY.

THE PRIZE: We are thrilled to be giving away five copies of Siege and Storm, the sequel to the best-selling Shadow and Bone, by Leigh Bardugo, along with Siege and Storm nailpolish! Per Amazon: “Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land, all while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. But she can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long.

The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.”

That sounds like a great read — I haven’t read it yet either, but I loved the first book and I can’t wait to read this one as well. This contest is open to US and Canadian residents. Get to writing!

      Sue, you totally nailed it. Exactly what I was thinking when I saw her. (I was in high school at the time and DJs wore that record out.)

      Alternately, she would also be right at home among the regulars on the Lawrence Welk Show.

    I’m pretty sure she’s fronting a Debbie Boone tribute band.

    But if I could have picked another genre, she is obviously fronting a Loretta Lynn tribute band.

    Regardless, it is a tribute band.

    And, just saying, I was around in the 70′s, and the vast majority of flower girls wore this ensemble. There are pictures of me in it. She just needs some baby’s breath in her hair.

    “We are…SAUSALITO!”

    I know I am mixing metaphors/eras, so to speak, with the “Lost in Translation” reference, but the aggressively-hennaed chanteuse from that film did such a masterful job of unleashing verbal jazz hands with her introduction of their lounge act that it has (clearly) stuck with me. It was perfect.
