A Week of Bloggers and Stiffners!
How can you see with all that light!!! It seems the Mistress as got into the warmth of the holiday season alot already. And there is still Christmas and New Years yet! And I have also been everywhere at once it seems. It started last week with fellow blogger and friend Howard from over at Soundtrack To My Day invited me to Manayunk, a district of Philadelphia to see a music act, the very talented Garrin Benfield, who was to be at the Grape Room. Manayunk looked beautiful too with the street looking like a Christmas town!
I also walked under this sign of a brassiere shop.I thought could you imagine if that thing fell and hit the Mistress? The authorities would have to tell the Mistress's mother that her baby boy was struck down by a over sized boulder holder!
Then it was on to the Grape Room and see Howard and Garrin Benfield. And of course some ice cold draft!
And isn't Howard just beaming here with singer/songwriter Garrin?
Thanks again Howard for a wonderful night of fun, and to Garrin for the autographed cd!!!! Friday after baking cookies all day I met a friend for dinner and to go see the Christmas village in Philadelphia. Of course it being so cold out, their was even more warm stiffeners being served up. Christmas Village in Philadelphia is an outdoor Holiday Bazaar event at Dilworth Plaza on the west side of City Hall from Thanksgiving till Christmas Eve. Vendors in more than 80 wooden booths and a big tent form a nice little village that sell European food, sweets and drinks as well as international seasonal holiday gifts, ornaments and high quality arts and crafts. The village also has special themed weekends and numerous musical performances and caroling going on. We also went to see the Love Park tree.
I also heard the cast of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia was there to promote the release of the Christmas dvd. I love that show, do you watch it? It is one of the funniest sitcoms on now I think, but I missed them. Would have been neat to get to see them.
But Sunday was definitely a Mame moment for me. ohhhhhhhh was I hung something terrible. The Mistress traveled to New Jersey to stay with one of her commenter's to attend a going away party for a another commenter, friend, and ex-coworker, the adorable Mistress Maddie's #1 Fan. He is leaving the big apple to the snow storm city of Minneapolis. So not only did we attend the party, but then lounge and club hopped till around 3. If that wasn't bad enough, we then went to a champagne brunch the next morning. If you know the Mistress it's no easy feat for me to get up early being hung over, just to start all over again. And then the group wanted to go to a tea dance- but alas, the Mistress had had enough of the hooch and cute boys, and even the lure of seeing Lady Bunny wasn't enough for me to stay for the rest of the day, and headed home to the comfy confines of her own home and bed, where I could just get comfortable and walk around in my undies and have a date with my sofa! Thank God I'm off today, I need more to time to recover! But again, DJ, I wish you all the success and best wishes for a new life on your sojourn to Minneapolis. You will be missed. Tootles!
