More XLO 80s Prom Thoughts

Sorry, wasn’t near a keyboard most of the day. To appease Jennie, here are a few more thoughts on the subject. Okay, here’s the deal – I didn’t think I was even going to this thing until about 4:30pm, and it started at 7. So my outfit was very much hobbled together. I took a […]

The Morning After

I only have a minute because I have to go to a Little League thingy, so I’ll post the very few pictures I have and write more later.

prom status

Okay, this is fantastic. I’m floored by how many people had a ton of 80s crap available for dressing up. The interesting thing is my date, my cousin Jacqui, is in the running for the celeb look-alike contest for looking the most like Pat Benatar. I can’t believe how funny this all is. Wish you […]

Big DumpTruck Blogs the WXLO Awesome 80s Prom

Okay, Jennie, you can stop your weeping, I’m heading out to the prom in about 15 minutes. My cousin and I will be crashing the prom in pegged pants, slouch socks and ripped shirts. I have big hair (well, as big as I could get it with medium-hold hairspray and sort of longish bangs.) I […]

After All That

I removed the two previous posts because now I’m not sure I’m going to be able to go, and it seems silly to leave a rant there if there’s not point. So what else…um. I know there was something I was going to mention, but I’m blanking.

I Love eBay

Look, according to the g00gle ad I just saw, eBay is branching out into food. I think I’d rather have the new than the used, though. I mean, if given a choice.

Little League Lead Legs

I have to figure out how to teach my son to run properly. Does that sound odd? It feels odd. He runs as if his legs are in casts. I cannot figure out exactly what he’s doing wrong, other than thinking he’s too stiff, that he doesn’t bend his knees enough. The reason I need […]

…And the Lawyer is Loopy Too

Oh, forgot to mention this nugget from the Sentinel: Mazzarella [one of the lawyers, not the mayor] downplayed the severity of the fight during an interview with reporters outside the courtroom. “I don’t know why the press is here. People get their heads kicked in all the time,” he said. “For some reason, everybody got […]
