My idea of Superbowl Sunday is a clean toilet bowl. Maxine.
I am not in any way, shape, form, or fashion a superbowl fan. There are three BIG superbowl parties going on in my neighborhood right now. OMG. The one directly behind me is the noisiest and the LOUDEST. I am so tired of hearing a chorus of OON OON OON I could shit. Come to think of it sounds like a chorus of people straining to take a dump. And as the day goes on, the voices and the words are shriller, slurred, and about to run me to the movies on a Sunday. Now try to imagine slurring of OON OON OON. Its something like URNT URNTA URINTA. I have my doors windows shut as usual and I can still hear them. It is very unusual to even hear these people so I can't really complain. I just hope and pray that when they all start puking it will be in the bathrooms and not the back yard. ICK!!!!!!!
Lambda Center had it's annual Mardi Gras Parade last night. Pam was there last year. This year the theme was Greek Gods and Goddesses. The closest to the theme was Daave in his shopping cart decorated with a few green grass skirts and a bust of David. Daave had on a DIAPER, a pacifer in his mouth, and some large baby toys hanging on the float. HE WAS JUST A VISION!
Now I ask you to bear with me but I cannot see the connection to Greek anything with the next two floats, even tho they were good. One was an Incan Temple with the GOD sitting on top surrounded with other INCAN natives in all stages of undress between short short stiff grass skirts, war paint, etc. to one cute Mexican wearing a thong with the front covered with a feather. I googled Greek Incan civilization but nothing came up.
Next was another krewe, with a shopping cart decorated with a white cloth with a Guy ridning in the cart in a white toga type costume, feathers, and balloons. The rest of the krewe was also in white toga type costumes, with feathers, and other acutramon (sp) and again a good presentation, but I still did not connect it the theme.
But it did not matter. Everyone was having fun, being crazy, and totally outrageous. The MC's for the evening were a rather large lesbian in a Gold Robe with lots of feathers and a gorgeous mask, and a 6 ft 6 queen decked out as Daisy Duke. Now all of this was Mardi Gras. Lots of beads, Daave threww suckers, and a good time was had for the evening. Lots of Laughter. WE ARE NOT A GLUM LOT. WE INSIST ON HAVING FUN. And we did. and we did. SOBER.
Again the fundraisers, fromerly known as the F'ers and renamed the Lambda Gold Diggers this year, provided a fun and safe evening to be sober in and also raise over $1000.00 for Lambda. It doesn't get much better than that.
Today I am grateful for:
My Higher Power, GOD.
My Sobriety
Dolly, my Schnauzer.
My Sponsor.
Laughter, Lots of Laughter, Deep Belly Busting Laughter.
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.
