Tell Me Who Your Friends Are, and I'll Tell You Who You Are (And How Much I Love Corn Nuts)

This Saturday was Megan Jane's birthday. I am not a very good friend when it comes to birthdays, so I am three days late posting this and I am still making her gift, which should be ready some time in February (2010).

I have known Megan Jane since we were nine, better than 18 years. I'm looking forward to our 20-year friend anniversary like some of you look forward to tater-tot day in the cafeteria. And by "some of you," I mean me so, really, Megan Jane and I will probably be celebrating our two decades of friendship with tater tots. Clazzy.

I think the 30-year anniversary is marked by gifts of corn dogs.

Here is a picture of lovely Megan Jane and some gentleman's very curvy tongue, which I just ran across (the picture, not the tongue. Dernit):

I was just thinking of all my favorite Megan Jane-isms and "Hey, You with the dreads—come with us" always wins out. Oh, Megan Jane, you boxcar child, you.

Oh, wow: A nice segue photo of Me, Adelka Ann and Megan Jane to transition to this weekend's trip to Connect-i-cut, which was a resounding success.

I really spread my wings on this latest trip, my pretties. I tried the Chile Picante Corn Nuts; it's always fun to embrace new cultures.

Kids, say what you want about New Jersey, but that state had the only rest stop to offer fresh cut flowers:

Which is way, way better than what New York had to offer:

So, as is customary when hanging with Adelka Ann and Justin P., there was theatre, good food and dancing.

Except the theater was the most glittery production of Dickens' A Christmas Carol I have ever seen. (I didn't even know they had jazz hands in Dickens' day.)

Oh, and the food was fake (backstage props for A Christmas Carol, which amused me more than they should have, given my 27 years).

Fake. Fake. Fakity Fake meats. Goddman, they can do anything these days, can't they?

Only the dancing was real.

Adelka Ann and "Joe" breaking it down one time.

We mostly just hung at Adelka and Justin's farm. The juxtapositions of art and farming implements always make me smile.

Just four hours after I took this photo, I got waylaid by an ice storm, and I'm not talking Rob Van Winkle, kiddos. I had to extend my stay in good ole Connecticut, which was just fine by me.

But now, after an arduous drive home, I am back in the bosom of Maryland, and while it's always nice to be nestled in someone's breasts, I can't help but look forward to the holiday season, which will bring a friend World Tour of Greenup, KY; Cambridge, Canton and Cleveland, OH; and maybe (just maybe, if I've been a good girl) a stop in Pittsburgh, PA.

'Cause real playas know to hit all of the hotspots.

In the Comments section, tell me where you've been or where you're going.

    Awwww....Adelka Ann and Justin bring wonderful memories. You are the grooviest people.

    I couldn't really get past the tongue.

    Yay Kaos family--lady, I'm so bummed I missed the holiday lyric deadline. Will ye be hosting a Boxing Day lyric contest?

    Yeep, Scotty--Chief Visionary!

    PDW, on behalf of Megan Jane, thank you, sir.

    CRJ, it was very, very odd, but not unpleasan, much like wearing Spandex.

    Franki, love, I was just looking at those photos--what fun we had. We MUST do that again, lady. When you head up to New York again, let a sister know.

    WendyB, I suspect that tongue's caught more than a few laydees. Holla if ya hear me!

    pssst. we aren't judging until Saturday.

    Way to have photogenic friends! I tried taking pictures of mine, and we were obscured by the cloud of dust that follows us. It was like a picture of eight Pigpens from "Peanuts," which is nowhere near as good as Corn Nuts.

    Also, hear, hear for the Rust Belt Tour '07.

    I'm going to SW Kansas this weekend. Gonna bust me some cocks!

  • At 7:08 PM , Blogger Mister Underhill said...

    Wow,a nd I thought I was branching out to eat pickles on my cheeseburgers lately. Picante cornuts. Arriba!

    PS I showed my boobs to some people this weekend but they ran away :(

    I am going nowhere! I do envy your world travels. If you need a partner in crime for our trip to the burg, let me know. Ya, know I am a huge fan...Maybe we can hijack another limo!!
    I have to say that is not only one of the best meganisns, but one the best quotes of all time in my book. ( it is even better becuase he actually came with us!!!)2nd only to Bonnie's " I want to play the skin flute", oh sweet,naive Bonnie!!!

    Psst. CamiK, I think you're awesome.

    PAD, "rust belt" is fine synonym for fire crotch. Thank you, good sir.

    Woodrow, love, if only I could say the same. Sigh.

    Mr. Underhill, they were delightfully spicy. As are my boobs. Ariba, indeed. Glad to have you, kiddo.

    Kirstin, my love, you are going all sorts of exciting places, just you wait, my dear. But, that was a fine night, wasn't it. I mean, except for sleeping on hardwood floors and all. Your boy was super cute. So was mine, come to think of it. Go us!

    A banks is a financial institution that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Banks primarily provide financial services to customers while enriching investors. Government restrictions on financial activities by banks vary over time and location. Banks are important players in financial markets and offer services such as investment funds and loans. In some countries such as Germany, banks have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States banks are prohibited from owning non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a cross-share holding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bancassurance is prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients.

    The level of government regulation of the banking industry varies widely, with countries such as Iceland, having relatively light regulation of the banking sector, and countries such as China having a wide variety of regulations but no systematic process that can be followed typical of a communist system.[url=http://projectcontrol.v3host.nl]CLICK HERE[/url]
