A little visit to the past. Everyone is decorating their page and I had not a clue what to do with mine. Then I remembered that pic of me and my pals one year …. dug out the album, and voile’ …. PAMOKC circa 1986 (my best guess).
First, let’s talk about my pink sweater.
I still have it in the back of my closet. I love/loved that sweater. It was safe and comfortable. I wore it all the time. Obviously! No wonder I was date-less for years. I was wearing turtleneck sweaters to night clubs. Yegads. And I can guarantee that denim skirt I am wearing here was just about down to my ankles. Frankly, not a come-hither vibe, was it? Not compared to Miss Jingle Bells above or Miss Gold Lame’ Jacket.
However, this particular New Year’s party … for some reason everyone went into My Friend Jamie’s closet and started changing clothes.
And if I happened to mention in a fairly recent blog post about a neighbor who thought he was cool enough to date me, well there he is creeping behind my shoulder. In fact, this might be the party of the White Russians for which I am not responsible for my actions because I kept drinking to keep from dealing with him. No wait, I don’t think it was. But I digress.
This guy doing the Bob Macy impersonation? Well, he was adorable. And you have to be from OKC to know who Bob Macy was. Anyway, this guy had moved on to bigger and better things down in Dallas and we were all jealous. And then, a few years ago, he lost his mind and did a bad, bad thing. I can’t even discuss.
The pink sweater? Everyone and I do mean EVERYONE had it on that night. But the only photos that exist are these above. Jamie. Doing a KJ impersonation. KJ has actually won a Dolly Parton look-alike contest (and might even be distantly related to her – see pic #1 above) ….. but party balloons were added for effect. I suppose wearing a turtleneck isn’t a problem if one is endowed like this?
Mike. This guy was the most eligible guy around at the time. He’s still around and he’s still eligible. In fact, we will probably see him THIS year on NY Eve. I know we saw him last year! Compare 1986 to 2009. Jamie’s still after putting her arm around him, eh, eh, eh? At least in 2009 he wasn’t sitting on her toilet. Have absolutely no idea what is going on in that pic. None whatsoever. But he gets to combine NY Eve with his birthday every year.
She has a new man this year though, so Mike .. all clear, buddy. All clear!
So tomorrow will see if I can round up some post dog-days NY Eve pics for the ol’ blog page. Obviously, these are pre-husband days. He hadn’t arrived on U.S. soil at this point.
