The last few weeks have been busy busy busy for me with work and extracurriculars. I'm still kind of sick (two freaking weeks later), and work may or may not kick my ass again this week.
No, I'm not looking for a pity party (unless of course some sort of delicious cocktail and possibly cake are involved). I'm just letting you know that I'll be a bit m.i.a. here until the weekend and once again will only have time to sporadically read the loveliness put out there on the internets by all of you, my lovely little anonymous scribes. Sigh. I hate when my stupid real life gets in the way of my fabulous fake life.
I do have time for a few random pictures, however.
#1) I took a picture of the pad thai I ate the other day so you could see the hugeness of it and understand why my belly hurt for hours after I pretty much ate the whole thing:
#2) Here's a snippet of a video I took with my camera at a drag show at a new bar in Superior, WI this weekend. The song she's singing is "My scary old whore", based on the Stevie Wonder song "My Cherie Amour". I wish the sound was better...
#3) A few more pics from the show:
#4) Yes, I know this next one is blurry, but it is the best I could do. Let me tell you what this fabulous piece of "art" is: As I was strolling through the hallowed halls of the Mall of America (total purchased: 3 bras, 3 unders, 1 dress, 3 gifts, 1 Swatch, and two glasses of sauvignon blanc) on Friday, I passed one of those stores that sells framed prints. Fine. This print however? A "painting" of some of our finest Republican leaders, dead & alive, playing poker. Yup. Seriously. Reagan, Nixon, Dubya...and the rest. I would have tried for a better shot, but the guy running the shop did not seem pleased at my taking the picture and I had to scurry off. Plus, I was a little unsettled and had to find a cocktail, stat.
#5) Yours truly, at R.T. Quinlan's bar in Duluth this Saturday after the drag show.
I stink like smoke (they still have smoking in bars in WI- gross) and I'm tired here, but somehow we still ended up staying up until after 4:00 in the morning. I'm too old for that sort of shit anymore. But it was fun?
Hope y'all had a nice weekend. And let me know if you found my pants.
Thanks so much.
You left your pants at the drag show. You decided they were "dragging" you down. Thank God you had bought those new unders.
Hope you feel better!
Love the feathery-flowery collar thing. Too bad I have no place to wear one of those. (like I could pull that off HA!)
Speaking of clothing. I thought of you when I found one of my all time fav vintage outfits in the closet this weekend. If Oldest Daughter doesn't want it for the Prom this year then its all yours.
Sounds like a WAMP kinda night. Your pad thai reminds of the vermicelli dish I just had at a Vietminese place down the street.
That picture from the MOA is scary. But it sounds like your underwear party, I mean bra shopping, went well.
Speaking of scary Republicans, my gym has CNN on one tv and Fox News on another. Seeing Karl Rove on the tv is very scary, but it does make me run faster.
Hope you get BETTER...like better! ;) And you are always stunning...
Sounds like you had a more exciting weekend than mine! I was usually asleep by 2, so you beat me there. Although, H did get really really drunk, and I did some karaoke. Still, 4 am???? Most impressive. I can't handle that these days.
Drag. Drink. Shopping.
It is Whiskey Marie's world; we're just living in it.
I could dive into that pad thai right now.
Damn, the video doesn't want to play for me but I have a feeling the performance was simply brilliant.
That might be a song I wouldn't mind being stuck in my head...who ever knows when you might need to bust out those kind of lyrics
The last time I stayed up until four in the morning drinking my body held it against me for the next two weeks. I have decided that I can only do that once every three years. This puts my next foray into drunkeness right around my fortieth birthday, we should make a date!
That Republicans playing poker picture is truly frightening! I think I'll stick with dogs...
science fiction double feature dr. x will build a creature see androids fighting.....
That picture is way tackier than the dogs playing poker one. I'd take dogs over Republicans any day.
Also, did you really just call them "unders"? I thought only my ex-boyfriend did that.
(Except whoops. I just read the comments on that post and realized you told me you used that word way back then. My memory = not so good, obviously.)
you need to let us know when you're in town next time. as christa once said, send up a bar flare. we'll find you.
Because I have no life and was curious about that"painting" I googled it. A better view is at:
BUT....they have the Democratic Poker print too!! Odd, very odd.
Hope you get well soon.
WM living large yet again IC, looks like a wild time over there.
yeah. what nanners said.
Similar to the sexyugly that Mick Jagger enjoys, some of your Queens are on the rather heftyugly side...is that rude? Should I apologize? I don't want to offend anyone - especially the ladies in drag. They tens to have a wicked bitch-slap.
I'm transixed by the drag queen with the Bret Michaels bandana. ARE THOSE SHIN SPATS? WTF? Bell bottom leg warmers? Also, I can see his/her, um, sack.
Loved the video! I don't think I've ever seen a drag show (except peeping through the windows of a club in London. I couldn't go in as I was the tour guide for 40 US teenagers, who are rather prude, I guess).
We could do some mass-analysis on the picture. Discussing questions like:
What's so funny?
Why is Lincoln facing away?
Why doesn't W get to play?
Why is the artistic skill of the painter so non-existing?
Oh, fun! NOT.
OMG... We could SO be best friends.
i had to go ahead and order that Republican painting. I am so excited, I had it sent Next Day Air.
*I am supposed to be lurking on the back-posts but had to comment this time.
*I heart drag shows. One of my favorite live shows yet was one.
*That's nasty that they still smoke inside in WI. I forgot about that and I was all excited about my Downtown LaCrosse hotel room this weekend.
*I (with all honesty) think my grandpa would LOVE that picture. LOVE. It. (I know! I'm not exactly liberal, but I wouldn't want ANY politicians hanging out in my living room!)
