pj main ed

My absolute favorite/the only gay bar in my town has theme parties. They usually include performances by some fun drag queens and a drink special. A bit different from the pajama parties I had as a young girl. Well this past January they had a Pajama Party. Of course, I had to go, despite the snow.

In our current world this is probably extremely unusual but I’ve never went anywhere in my pajama pants. I’m not a department store shopper who goes like that. It’s not a slight, it’s just not me. So this was new, for me.

pj ring ed

Wrap Snap N Go Hair Rollers in Leopard Print-borrowed, leopard statement ring-gifted from a friend, Pornormance Tank-JamesDeen.com, pink, fleece cocktail print pajama pants-Dots, Abbey Dawn Rock On Leopard Boots-Just Fab (not pictured), Lulu by Lulu Guinness rain tote print bag-JC Penney (not pictured)

In deciding what to wear I almost immediately decided not to wear a full on two piece pajama set. I guessed that not many would be participating. Plus I wanted to be current and ya know the thing to do these days is a tank & pj pants. That’s what I did, with my spin.

I dug out some old/rarely worn hot pink pjs from the now closing Dots (goddamn I feel old) to pair with my James Deen tank. I was originally gonna include an alternate tank below in the Get the Look section but you probably already own one. Plus if you don’t know who James Deen is, get schooled. The info’s right on this site.

I have thick, curly, dry hair. There isn’t all that much you can do with it. Usually it’s just put a ton of product(s) in it and then leave it down. Not that night though. All of the sudden I thought of putting it up in curlers like people do when they are curling their hair over night. I don’t own any as I don’t need them. So I borrowed these super cute leopard print ones from a family member. Yes, it is supposed to look intentionally messy.

Ah, now there was a theme emerging-hot pink with leopard print accents. I was given a few costume jewelry rings from my sis on Christmas so I found the big leopard one and voila. Yeah, I also wore my Abbey Dawn leopard print boots from JustFab (affiliate link) and my daily Lulu by Lulu Guinness bag (both are no longer for sale). However I’d totally go with the little clutch below, if you’re into clutches. It’s fun.

Then I topped my often makeup free face with a ton of pink makeup. It had the side effect of making me appear younger, a win/win really. It was both over the top and flattering.

pj full

How was my night? Okay. Not many dressed up, as I expected. The friendly bartender thanked me for dressing up. I think a couple of girls said they liked my hair and pants. One guy did show up in a full on red onesie, which rocked! Most of my stories are just me and this one is no exception. I tried to rope a student from school into stopping by but she declined. The show was fun, as always. There was a sad group of people there celebrating a chick’s 21st birthday. While she was very nice, she was also trash drunk. This was a light drinking night for me and I just tried to step out of the way as she fell all over the place. Luckily there were couches, which you know helps when drunk people are falling/climbing all over the place. Also, I was worried she might hurl.

I didn’t stay all that long but hey, I love dressing up & watching the shows so whatever.

This post is a part of the 30 for 30 challenge.

These are some outfits that I wore in July while my sister was visiting. July’s her birthday month so she visited a couple of times. Yes, many folks in my family like a ‘birthday month’. Personally I’m good with a weekend for moi.

IDLEWILD

Harajuku Lovers This Love Is Serious tank top-eBay, Route 66 denim shorts-eBay, yellow bracelet-Dots, multicolor bracelet-Burlington Coat Factory, elephant earrings-gift

OPI shatter nail polish-gift

Rue 21 denim high top sneakers-thrifted

We’ve been going to Idlewild amusement park since we were small children. It’s a fun, relaxed family park. There aren’t any thrill rides or that sort of thing.

I put this outfit together because I wanted to stay cool but still have a little fun. It seems in the past that I either would try to look sexy (uh, youth, like any guys care about little ole me) and be quite uncomfortable or think “It’s hot & I just want to be comfortable” and just dress like shit. I think this is an improvement.

I bought the top on eBay last summer. It’s from Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku line. The tops in that line are so much fun. They often offer them during rush sales on HauteLook but I never have dough when they’re available. My go to denim shorts were also seen in this post. I added some costume jewelry including my elephant earrings (also seen here). I shot a close up of my nail polish because it was one of the first times that I used the OPI shatter polish. I was going for the fun, close up accessories pics that I see on other blogs but some of them came out creepy.

CONFUSION HILL & DIZZY LIZZY’S at HOOTIN’ HOLLER
Confusion Hill is one of those fun mystery spots. Dizzy Lizzy’s setting is a saloon/whorehouse in which you sit on a bench while a revolving room spins around you so that it seems like you are moving. This guide was pretty good too. I don’t even think that he broke character.

gray lace look top-gift, chain necklace-Target, Paulo Corelli booties-thrifted, Piper & Blue Jeans-kmart

We went out to our local bar that night after returning from Idlewild so I just threw something together quickly. The top necklace and boots were seen in this previous post. We were in a hurry to go so I didn’t take pics until we returned which explains the ludicrous angles that I thought were funny/interesting at the time. I also usually have a policy of not taking photos for things like this after drinking as your eyes will look like shit. We had some fun and sang karaoke. I sang All I Wanna Do by Sheryl Crow and my sister sang Folson Prison Blues by Johnny Cash.

American Apparel Cotton Spandex Jersey Bandeau Dress-RueLaLa

My sister told me that she was going to wear a dress on her birthday so of course I was like, heck yeah, I’ll wear one too. I chose this American Apparel Cotton Spandex Jersey Bandeau Dress that I had bought on sale from RueLaLa a while back. Apparently you can wear it 15 different ways. I tried a few ways but found this way to be the most flattering because I have boobs. I wore my yellow wedges, as seen here. My sister’s dress is from some upscale department store. The name escapes me. If you are wondering what I got her for her birthday the gifts did include shoes, “Mary, I have to practice walking in these, they are at least 6 inches, I feel like I’m on stilts”. teehee.

tank top-Dots, black polyester tailored shorts-Dots, belt-Walmart, chain necklace-Target

I threw this together to go to the dive bar again because “I like to wear colors like black because it says I’m a whore”Jenna Marbles. Just kidding. It was because it was 4,000 degrees so I was trying to wear as little as possible to deal with it. The shorts were also seen here. The necklace is the same as shown above and the belt has been seen here and here. I wore my Vivica wedges from ShoeDazzle as seen here. I do not have the picture of those as they were taken on my sister’s phone. Which is also where a picture of her would be. Oops.

It was packed so we didn’t stay very long. We did sing karaoke again though. I sang A Change Would Do You Good by Sheryl Crow and she sang something by Rihanna. I think it was Good Girl Gone Bad but I could be wrong.

Somewhat Offensive Leprechaun Joke

This used to be my all time favorite joke. I read it in Maxim years ago. P.S. I didn’t write this joke. If you aren’t of average height (some people prefer 1 term while others prefer another), I’m not trying to demean you.

A guy goes to the restroom in a bar. While at the urinal he looks next to him and sees a midget. He says “Wow, you have a big dick. I wish I had a dick that big.” “Well I’m a leprechaun. I can grant you one wish.” “Really? How?” “If you let me fuck you I’ll grant you that wish.” So while their having sex the guy yells out “I can’t believe I’m getting fucked by a leprechaun!” The midget says “I can’t believe you think I’m a leprechaun.”

Through the Years

2011-Laid Up, Writing About Weed Movies & Salivating Over Harrison Ford

(original tweet-Cuz it killed my back 2 b up 4 more than an hr earlier this is my lame #stpattys night, just 4 ford)

(original tweet-Yes, i bought it cuz of the shape n price. Xd. #whisky)-It's very important to buy Scottish whiskey on St. Patrick's Day, doh!

I was still in some muscle pain due to having recently moved a giant picnic table so I wouldn’t have to read in the rain during a sojourn (info on that in my Charlie Sheen style post). I was laid up for about a month. So I passed on going out on St. Patrick’s Day because I didn’t want to be jostled. While I was chilling I decided to do a Netflix post on my top drinking movies. I couldn’t find any aside from those that I’d written about in my Top Sex Comedies on Netflix Streaming post so I put together the choices/outline for my Top Stoner Comedies On Netflix Streaming for 4/20 post instead.

Plus I drank whiskey and watched Morning Glory for the first time.

2010-Bingo & Sarah Jessica Parker



Went to bingo in St Patty’s attire. There was a talent contest so I sang, Beer by Psychostick because I thought that it was funny. Plus I don’t know Irish songs. Not surprisingly the mostly elderly crowd was not amused. A 30+ seller in a band tee said she liked it though. My father told a joke. It went over well but he did not win. Our *completely unbiased* opinion is that he was robbed.

I didn’t go out drinking that Halloween as I hadn’t had fun solo on the previous St. Patty’s Day. When I got home I drank modified White Russians and watched Did You Heart About the Morgans? for the first time.

2009-Super Old Time Rock N Roll



That year I really wanted to go out so I dragged someone who doesn’t drink with me as a DD. I got super trashed and sang karaoke. I started out with Maroon 5’s Harder to Breathe (of course). I later moved on to Old Time Rock and Roll because I love it and thought that the over 60 karaoke DJ would enjoy it, he did. When I say super wasted I mean it. I had to prove to the bartender that I had a DD to order my first drink (yay, for having to get hammered to leave your house, thanks social anxiety!) and was later told by my DD “I’ve never seen someone so drunk” and she used to work in a bar. Yeah. Oh I also hit on and was rejected by ugly guys which is always a treat.

2008-Right To The Fell’s Point (the best one!)

That year I was living in Bmore and we had all decided to go out for St. Patty’s Day. Of course we decided to pregame before. Guitar Hero is obviously important to include in your pregaming activities. I didn’t have any money so I decided that I had to get as drunk as possible before we left since I couldn’t buy drinks at the bar.



I got pretty wasted (in a good way though) and barely remember the bar. We went to Rodos and even though they were at capacity they let us in because we were regulars.

Fuck, the list is in the back of this pic but is unreadable! If you ever partied at our place you know what I'm talking about.


After that we came home and drank some more. I remember drinking Natty Bohs and then making Jason eat a spoon of the icing I was eating which was really funny. BTW-Natty Bohs and icing don’t go well together.

Yo Boy Plumbers
The next day I was woken up by banging on the front door. There was a girl in bed next to me. I assumed it was Donna. At the door were 3 young guys who were yelling ‘Yo, let us in, it’s the plumbers”. I would later refer to them as the Yo Boy Plumbers. I let them in and 2 tall skinny guys and 1 tall fat guy entered. Our usual maintenance guy was an older short guy so that was unusual in itself. Two of our radiators had been broken for like a month and we kept calling and they had finally shown up. They kept telling me how it wasn’t even cold but we had been freezing our asses off. The thing was it was 9 or 10 in the morning and these guys were incredibly high. They kept hopping around and laughing and making jokes which is really annoying when you are hung over.

They saw the table full of cups and bottles and were like “Late night, huh?” and said they hadn’t gone out. Then I took them to my sister’s bedroom and they fixed that radiator. After they left I took care of the dog and got ready. My sister woke up and yelled at me. It turns out that my friend Jen was the one in bed with me because she didn’t want to drive home drunk. Donna had been in her room the whole time they were working on the radiator and she had been sleeping in very little clothing under her sheet.

2006-Death & Johnny Depp

Okay, according to my photo archives this is from 07 but we're at Baja & look adorable.

In 2006 my sister Donna called and invited me to visit her in Bmore (before I lived there I often visited) because she knew that I had never partied for St. Patty’s Day before (I’m a later bloomer). We went out to the now defunct Baja Beach Club. It was okay but not great that night. The next day my mother called and told me that my aunt Charlotte had been found dead the day before but hadn’t told me because she didn’t want to ruin St. Patrick’s Day for me. Donna and I wet to the carnival and to see The Libertine (great flick BTW) to take our minds off of it. Trying not to cry at a carnival isn’t fun. Another year my late brother called and asked for the above joke that I had told him when he was drying out for a week a month or two prior.
