Dinner was had by BYAFGA,
B Monday, P Squirrel, and guest star Jilly. We crowded into a big maroon
pleather booth. The waitress was gruff, but good at her job, I would have
to say. We discussed topics ranging from the host of THIS AMERICAN LIFE
(is he hot or not??) to where to get the best eyeglass frames, to the
"distressed and vulnerable" state of Squirrelly's sinuses after
the rummage sale.
really comment on dinner (portobello mushroom sauce with penne) Liked
the kalamata olives in the salad.
After eating we adjourned to the karaoke room. We got a big table BEHIND the karaoke guy, which meant that when our sisters were singing we were watching their backs. Also, it meant that people in the window were checkin us out, too.
Quoth B Monday: "being downtown after dark-it feels a little like a post apocolyptic pep rally. Lots of people looking in the window-checking out music or asses or both?"
Rain", "I'm Sick of Myself" duet with Sapphitini on "Islands
in the Stream"
We were all touched by the beautiful voice of Alvin. We were mostly shocked by how touched we were. It was a humbling moment. Some of us had tears in our eyes.
We looked over Sapphitini's resume which she was preparing to take with her to galleries in NYC. We told Jilly that LUPEC is not all about having fun and drinking --- it's about overthrowing the patriarchy, too.
Lots of squishy love
was bandied about. We really are a sorority now.
We got ourselves together
to leave just as Marvin Gaye was coming on. I think that was for the best
as I was in danger of getting myself in trouble with Lionel and his friend
at the bar. I just don't even think I can go into the whole scene in the
car with the cherub, the lost ticket and Whisky Mingus(or was that Charles
Daisy??) All I can say is it is nice to know that I can always count on
laughing till I almost pee my pants when I am around my LUPEC sisters.
