23/5 Meme 

Beastmomma tagged me to complete this Meme. Thanks Jaspreet!

Meme Instructions

1. Delve into your blog archive.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions. Ponder it for meaning, subtext or hidden agendas...
5. Tag five people to do the same

My 23rd blog entry is dated October 23, 2003 and did not have a title, which is weird because I love making up names for my entries. Not like I’m saying, “OK…I’ll call this entry Bob and I’ll call the next entry Larry!” However I like to put an interesting enough title out there that would make people want to read it and incorporate it into the first sentence of my entry. So, since I didn’t have a “real” title, we’ll call this my title: Do you ever have a situation where you look back at what you did or said and feel like a complete putz?

My 5th sentence was this: I know how it feels and I hate being uncomfortable, so I really do not want to inflict that on anyone else, ya know?

I can’t remember what I did, but I can remember how I felt when I wrote that entry. Weird, huh? I was so embarrassed and it takes quite a bit to embarrass me.

Another interesting tidbit is that later in that post, I said that it was the 7th anniversary of my Mom’s death. Truth be told, I can’t remember the date that Mom passed away. I just remember it was late October 1996 and my sister and I were relieved she hadn’t died on Halloween.

Isn’t it strange that a day that changed my life so profoundly cannot seem to stay within my brain? I think some of it has to do with the fact that we’re going on 9 years since she passed away and also, things were so chaotic in those days leading up to and after she died, that it was hard to hang on to a thing like a date and time.


Anway, I’m supposed to tag folks to participate in this Meme, however I’m just going to ask anyone who wants to complete it to do so. It would be cool if you let me know that you did it so I can read all about it! Just leave me a comment!

Grant Park Tour of Homes 

Before the Moth Ball, Red, the Captain and I went to a few of the homes on the Grant Park Tour of Homes. I looked at my pictures and I've come to the conclusion that I'm hypnotized by stained glass. Beautiful, isn't it?

The Moth Ball 

Red and the Captain came into town last weekend for the Grant Park Tour of Homes and the Moth Ball. What better escort to a party than you sister and her husband, I say!

The theme for the Moth Ball was "Shaken Not Stirred: A Night With James Bond." There is a table decorating contest and my sister, "Queen of All Things Crafty," was set loose on the decorations. She did a FANTASTIC job and won 2nd place which entitled her to 5 bottles of wine as her prize!

Red and the Captain also got all up into dressing for the party as well. The intent was for the Captain to dress like the first James Bond villain, who I'm told is who "Dr. Evil" is based on. It was discovered that eyelash glue does not work like Spirit gum, therefore no scars could be applied. So the Captain just wore all black and was kinda like a bald Johnny Cash type person I guess.

Sister went all out and bought a lovely black gown that was regularly like $5000 and she got it for $20. She wore long black opera gloves and shiny baubles galore and she looked just bee-you-tee-full!

Since I was the Ms. Moth Ball 2004, I was required to attend and perform. I ended up singing the same song I sang last year, which was "Proud Mary." At first I was not too happy about this, but then Sister suggested it would be a good tribute to our brothers and sisters in New Orleans, and then I was all about it. The crowd seemed to enjoy it.

Jef and I had talked Sister into performing for the Ms. Moth Ball 2005 contest. She's got a great voice, but she is not ready to use it on the world, so Jef suggested that she mix a Martini for her talent. They played the music that is the intro music to the HBO series "Real Sex" while she was putting the ingredients in the shaker and then she said, "HIT IT!" and "Conga" by Miami Sound Machine came on and she shook what her Mama gave her AND she shook her money maker and everything in between!!! At the end she drank the Martini and then said, "TA DAH!" IT WAS GREAT!!!

What came afterward was the type of stuff that makes reasonably sober people cover their eyes. A parade of people chock full o' liquid courage decided to try their hand at lip synching songs or stripping or both. The friends of those who were chock full o' liquid courage are also full o' liquid courage thus making them incredibly loud. Therefore the winner ended up being a drunk frat boy type who stripped to Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" and occasionally stopped and yelled "WOOOOO!!!" at the top of his lungs and pumped his fist in the air. He ended up having a woman's halter top and panties on and scratched his balls with his scepter. Did he remember what he did this the next day? I highly doubt it!


However a good time was had by all. We made it back to the car and then home, but not before stopping at the QT for gas and late night snacks.

I wonder what Red will do to top herself on the table decorations next year? Maybe she'll sing for her talent for Ms. Mothball 2006?

Stay tuned...
