MzOuiser: (Holding out a logoed notepad from the Roger Smith Hotel) I'm sorry, I lost my program!
Hank Azaria: (Signing notepad) that was very naughty of you...
MzOuiser: I know, I should be spanked.
Other delights from my weekend with the Chicago Blondes:
A manicure for less than $10 that lasted for 5 days without chipping
Watching Perfect K try 5 or six dresses from Bebe on her perfect body, that she worked like hell to acheive
Knowing that I will never look that way... and wondering why it didn't bother me more than it did
Hearing L say, when K was in the dressing room, "When can we get outta here? This is depressing."
Dinner at Turkuaz: yummy dessert, yummy wine, and a very yummy waiter, who teased us with photos of his fantastically yummy oceanside home in Turkey
A long talk with K about spirituality and the ways in which the divine speaks to us
A long talk with L about life, and how we flucutate between relaxation and fear, and the demons in our psyches, and the blessings of our friendships
Photos of the three of us in $5 bling sunglasses from Canal street
Soup Dumplings at Shanghai Joe's, and Bubble Tea afterward
Feeling, I think for the first time in my life, that maybe I'm not the Skreech of this group
Watching my boyfriend chat with my oldest friends
Hearing them all gang up on me in the loving way that family does
Flirting with L's husband over the phone (he's irresistable)
L describing dryly that Ron Jeremy is ugly as sin but supposedly has "an enormous penis"
Realizing that the three of us haven't just gotten older, we have deepened in ways I never would have imagined
Watching all the boyz on Saturday night laugh at K's amazing self, and feeling so proud of my association with them
Getting the first faint glimpse of where our life paths will lead us next
