D is for ...

D is for Dorothys.

Okay, most of you thought I'd go with "dogs," right?
Nope. Covered that one with "B."

No, I got thinking about Dorothys because one of my favorite clothing sites, Dorothy Perkins, just horribly disappointed me.

They announced plans this week to retail The Kardashian Kollection (typing that almost made me throw up in my shoes) in partnership with Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian.

I must now boycott Dorothy Perkins. I am a very vocal opponent of what my friend Dimo calls the Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse (even though there's only three involved in this brouhaha). As my cousin Jennifer said, "I will not support anything with them.They just irk me. I'm sick of hearing about them; they are everywhere." Well said. I cannot in good conscience support any endeavor that serves primarily to get these attention-whores more publicity. So therefore, I must avoid Dorothy Perkins and their beautifully-styled, affordable British clothing. Dammit.

Okay. Enough of that.

Other Dorothys that I enjoy include:

Dorothy Gale
Wearing ankle socks with pumps long before ZZ Tops' "Legs" video   

Dorothy Hamill
Loved your skating, but I hold you personally responsible for all of us who suffered your haircut

Elmo's Goldfish, Dorothy
She's no Mister Noodle, but she'll do

 Dorothy Parker
"You can lead a horticulture but you can't make her think." - D.P.
Dorothy "Tootie" Ramsey
Didn't remember her real name, did ya?
And last but certainly not least, the grande dame of Dorothys,
Dorothy Zbornak
