They Actually Stopped Bringing Me Luck in 1992

Did I see that seventeen-year-old commercial for Elizabeth Taylor’s White Diamonds on TV because the fragrance’s marketers are attempting to trick the public into thinking that Taylor looks like that — with dark hair and unclouded eyes and in eternal soft focus? Or was it only because I happened to be watching Golden Girls reruns at one in the morning on Lifetime and seventeen-year-old commercials for out-of-fashion beauty products are the best sponsorship this particular network can afford at this particular hour?

Yes, I was watching Lifetime at one in the morning. I am not ashamed.
