Only as Old as You Feel

My birthday weekend came and went and I had a pretty fantastic time.  I also still feel roughly 17 so it’s good to know that some things might never change.  I’m so thankful to the friends who trekked out to the…uh, interesting bar for the burlesque show and I hope they had a good time as well.  The show started much later than I thought it would so I wasn’t at my most sober when it began but since it was a bar that didn’t really matter.  We managed to nab pretty much the only tables in the place and we all had a spot for the show.  There were hula hoops, a guy dressed as a clown, a large man wearing a small g-string and women in pasties.  Lots and lots of pasties.  This photo pretty much sums up the night:


I know this is only the second photo of myself I’ve ever posted on this blog, but I kind of felt like I had to.  Also, the fact that a lovely friend of mine made an appearance in the background just made the whole thing better.  The big guy with the g-string and I danced for a moment but no one was quick enough with their camera to capture that – though if you look on my right arm in the above photo you’ll see some of his make-up that rubbed off on me.  When I woke up the next day I thought I had gotten a skin rash from him for a hot minute, which made me more nauseous than I already was.  Luckily it came off in the shower so no dermatology appointments were needed.

I also had to post the above picture because the woman I’m with reminded me of the time that I dressed up like Prince for a rock and roll themed party my old roommates and I threw in college.  I kind of feel like I have to post that too, so here it is:

See the resemblance?

Apologies to my sister because I know how much this picture freaks her out.

So yes, my birthday night was a big success.  The rest of the weekend was full of dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, more quality time with my sister and some of our friends and an afternoon hanging out at The Field Museum – obviously, a great weekend all around.  It’s even snowing a little today, which isn’t something we exactly need but it’s pretty to look at.  Although I kind of wish it was purple rain instead.
