Post-intoxicated ramblings...

The Salon Friday night was sort of a smashing success. Or maybe I should say it has the potential to be a smashing success. There were only three of us there....Reference Diva, myself, and Pat...a wonderfully intelligent former northerner who enjoys the low blood pressure way of life found in smallish town Texas. We talked about snippets of possible future conversations because we know we're going to meet again. The professor that I was looking forward to rubbing on is out of town, another integral member unexpectedly had family pop by, and most of the others didn't come because those key missing members were their link to the group. Sheep! I'm excited about the possibilities for this group. Our current array of possible topics include (but are not limited to) the meaning of feminism, misuse of language, education in general, the difference between porn and erotica, and the others slip my mind at the moment.

In other news, I went to a concert with Rachel last night. Our friend Lauren's hubby David has a band. I've mentioned them here before. They play in Dallas semi-often, etc. They rented out the bar of a local restaurant and packed the place last night. I've officially found a new favorite drink: amaretto sour. OH MY GOD! And I drank about 3 times the drinks I usually have. The selection included apple sour, amaretto sour, and long island ice tea. I will say, right off the bat, that I'm a very cheap drunk, and that was enough to get me fuzzed for a few hours.

I had a wild urge to post all about my personal business and the wonderfulness that is _____ last night, but I promptly went to bed to prevent myself from embarrassing my...self.

This morning it's off to Cracker Barrel. I'm taking my mom to lunch later for Father's Day. That's a whole other post. Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there that don't suck ass.

  1. I'm glad your Salon, even with the low numbers, was a success! It sounds fascinating to me. One of the things I miss about college is having the opportunity to talk about things like that. It seems like all I talk about now is Elmo and Barney; the loves of Ellie's life.

    Happy Father's Day to your mom too! We are the reverse, my dad got Happy Mother's Day as well as Father's Day. I am really missing him today. And my Papa. *Sniff*

  2. I wish I had at least one person I could have a salon with -- I'm surrounded by idiots here in Georgia (are you surprised?).

    Also, my daughter gave me a father's day card today. Her dad has never been in the picture. We also gave cards to my dad and my brother -- they are great father figures and don't suck ass. Cheers to nontraditional families!

    Also, I love your Anne Tanitor pics on your profile. I love Anne Taintor. I have a bunch of her postcards hanging up at work.

  4. MMMM...Cracker Barrel. They don't have a Cracker Barrel anywhere near Las Vegas, part of a vast conspiracy to rob me of all that brings me joy.

  10. Amanda,
    I understand being surrounded by idiots. Oh do I understand.

    Yay! Nontraditional families kick ass!

    There were some Anne Tanitor magnets and such that I had my eye on in NC but I didn't get back to the store to snatch 'em up before I came home. Need to get back on bust.com and see if I can find some things. :o)

  11. I'm leaving the "I'm a lying whore" comment up...even though it was an asswipe that busted into my account and put it up in the first place. It's the first time a man has ever called me a whore. Historic indeed.

  16. Maybe he is suffering from some sort of mental problem. you know, like Tom Cruise and his insanity problems :)

  17. Is it just me or does Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes look RELATED. They even have their eyebrows waxed to the same shape!

  18. It's great to hear your salon party went well. The folks I work with are either too dull (I mean absolutely no personality), can't be dragged anywhere on a weekend, or are too close minded to have open conversation. Most of the people up here are Bush sheep so all they ever ask is "Why do you hate America/God/Jesus?". It would be nice to have some intelligent debate; it's just impossible being surronded by the flotsam and jetsam of intellect known as Ohio.

  19. Fence,
    I wouldn't even compare my worst enemy to Tom. Tom freaks me out. lol

    ReplyDelete
  20. LMAO, Amanda! I have noticed that. I can just see them laying in those little reclining chairs having their eyebrows threaded together. Ahhh, love.

  21. I feel for ya cincy. The founding salon diva is retiring in November and I fear my intelligent conversation will go down the toilet after that. Hang in there! Maybe a well-developed brain will sneak up on you sometime.

  22. Free Katie!!!

    :|

    i got nothing.

  23. She's too far gone, man. She's joined the ranks of the alien-worshipping sci-fi religious nuts. Kiss her eyebrows g'bye.

  24. I wanna salon... Minus intellectual snobbery and bigotry...
    But I don't wanna psycho obsessive loser ex...
    Guess I'll just stick with what I got. ;)
    Two exes who aren't that bad and a groovy hubbie who provides me with all the intellectual convo I need.
