Vanilla Sugar – Experiment # 3

Hey folks, sick of me yet. Trust me there’s a method to my madness. Of course it’s top secret and if I tell you well then I have to dress up like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible and hunt you down. And I just honestly don’t have time for all that. So just trust your loyal lunatic folks. I am not insane, or I am but aren’t you used to it by now?

So another experiment. This one is also inspired by Miss Paula Deen. Such a cool chick. The hair is a bit much but man can she cook.
