Round One: Annual Christmas Smackdown

A party kicks off the holiday season.

Fabrizio is a godsend, and helped me with my make-up.



The boys came by -- Banjo, Ron, Kenny Mac, and Bandit.



The girls were almost ready. (Paula was all dramatic about something or other.)



Dez's Barry wanted to join us, but he was working.



The first stop was Kev's. He knows how to please the ladies.



We tried to text Laurie and Jon, but they were otherwise engaged.



Dez brought some hors d'Ĺ“uvres.




Margaret killed herself making the sausage and bacon platter.



We heard Terry whisper (when Marion was in the next room), "So many chicks, so little time..." DB said amen to that.



And we've got three parties to go! Oh yes, I've got every one of you. Carolynn, Marjie, Susan, Kathy ...

Since you're in the neighborhood, visit my new piece on Patch.

  2. Ahhh, pay no attention to me. That's just the Harvey Wallbangers talking. But I do look like a chick magnet in this cool turtleneck and my striped bell bottoms, don't I?

  4. I bet Levi's have tried to withdraw all copies of that photo. Did they ever make pants that awful? With a girl between the legs?!!! The pig one wouldn't go down well nowadays either (it made me feel sick), not to mention what Laurie and Jon were up to (naughty!). Where do you find them?

  6. soo...wait...lemme go get some of the Glenlivet before I start...this is too funny...I need a good laugh today!

    you need to look like a freak to professionally apply makeup? No WONDER I've always had trouble!

    Burton suit takes the heat off? Takes the "cool" off you too!

    Don't pay more? What, is THAT why Brit didn't wear underware?

    Keeping up with Commodore...uh, now where DID I leave my luggable Commodore? oh right, out of biz...

    Burgundy...is it me or does it look like he's dropping a latke on her plate...from the BBQ?

    Laurie, Jon...I uhm...didn't know...I'll just leave you two alone! or sell tickets!

    we know the true ID of the female version of Chuckie now!

    Hari Kari for pork products, what WILL the rabbis think of next?

    So...the green pants get a girl between your legs, the blue pants, not so much?

  8. You look good, Petrea, but you are the shortest!

    Although I love a good smackdown, I'm a bit punch drunk at the moment.

  11. Thanks for the invitation!

    Where in the world do you find this stuff? Weird and hilarious--though the pig's self-slaughter is . . . so very French? And I was gonna have a hot dog.

  12. Do you use the Max Factor micrometer every time you go out? Or just save it for the screen?

    Looks like the guys had a better time of it, in the old adverts.

  13. If Fabrizio would like to unload his Micro Meter for a reasonable price, I have a glass head filled with marbles that I think it would fit over nicely.

  18. It was a tragic ending for me, and leaving the children motherless was heartbreaking. But at least I didn't make a pig of myself.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  30. Oh, that pig. I think the only way the post could be better is to put the pig in a bullet bra.

    Thank you for making me laugh. :)
