I know you're all thoroughly enjoying the little fashion show from the 80s John is currently posting on his blog.
So I thought it only right and decent that we got some visual fun over here, too.
Now, we all know John is good looking. And we also know he does Good Looks.
But just how do we go about classifying those looks? I feel an International Scale of Dangerous Glares* is needed.
Have a neutral, to start with, so we can then form comparisons. This is a 'fine, take my picture, see if I care' sort of look. Maybe a 0.25, as there's a touch of defiance in it.
And then we can move to a...warning look? A grade one? 1.5?
This is a sort of 'Are you going to take my photo? Seriously?' type look. (And also shows off our mutant wallpaper quite nicely.) Bit of eyebrow going on, bit of a warning glint...
Next, we move to a more serious 'Take my photo and your phone will go missing' look (except my phone is Met property, so he'd better not...)
And then onto a 'Sherlock, put that down or your chemistry set will be confiscated for a week' look. Grade 3?
I'll try to catch more, as they happen - obviously not when they're aimed at me. I can only imagine that I would suffer for that. Especially as we go up the grades.
*All Glares are subject to re-classification, as new glares are made available to us. The value of Glares may go up as well as down.
Of course, we'll also venture into the minus ranges, which include grins, smiles and generally goofy good-humoured type looks.
