I'm feelin it this morning....

morning campers...

so, I am going to be very very truthful with you this morning, this blog entry...well, this is a tough one for me.

You see last night we went out to celebrate my darling bubs birthday, and can I tell you...I believe I am still feeling the effects of the very strong Seven and Sevens I was drinking.

We went to Bernies last night, for those of you now in the know....Bernie's is the Columbus version of CBGB's except there is no gift shop, and 90% of the bands are terrible, just terrible.

Though last night was a rarity, some friends were playing there (and they're actually good) and also my bubs played a few songs with them in the middle of their set. So, really that's why we were there (and the ton of people that showed up to see my bubs play, as there were more people to see him than to see any of the bands).

So you see now I am feeling really tired, old actually. My ears are still ringing from the bad music, my throat sore from screaming over said music, and mostly my eyes are sore from seeing some of the dirty gutter punks all whored up and making out with the homeless men for fun.

I wish that was an exaggeration, but no....people do really tongue kiss the hobo's at Bernie's.


all in all though it was a great time, and so wonderful to see my bubs with "his people" again...though any time we go to Bernie's it kills any desire in us to have a club sometimes we miss it, but then after seeing all those people and sitting through all the crap....we realize we're way better off now.

So how are all of you?? Peachy I hope.

ok, so a couple things....

1- I am really close to hitting the 1500 sale mark in my shop, which is really unreal...I just hit 1400 after all, or so it seems.

2- I am still trying to figure out my halloween my choices are; Wonder Woman, Little Red Riding Whore, Naughty Candy Striper (I think that's actually called a Candy Stripper), and some sort of winged thing...less fairy and more arch angel.

sigh, I am open to suggestions.

ok, now I am in desperate need of more coffee and something, anything to take away the pain in my head.

congrats on the sale mile marker!
I like candy stripper for a costume idea.

oh bernies, so many memories...

I haven't been there in years but muc of my high school evenings were spent there listening to said crappy bands.
I never frenched the homeless though.

I checked out your store last night for the first time since I got back from vacation and hearted like fifty things! You have got it going on over there. You deserve 1500! Wahoo!

Sounds like you had a fab time last night. Sounds like an interesting place you went to. I'm glad that your bubs had a good birthday.

How about Wonder Woman dressed up as an archangel?

Feel better...I too have known the after effects of a night at Bernie's.

I vote for anything that's not overtly slutty. And Wonder Woman, she's always awesome.
