Memorial Day

In celebration of Memorial Day, we were invited over our neighbors' house... the house of Chuck and Larry.  Yes, that should sound funny to you if you're a movie-goer!  Nevertheless, it's true, that's their names and they're just great!  Larry happens to be my hair stylist and is patently hilarious and sooooooooo flamboyant. I've never encountered Larry twice with the same hair color.  Two weeks ago it was white-blonde, and as you can see, now it's bright blue. Chuck, on the other hand, is quiet and reserved and does not in any way showcase his orientation.  They balance each other out like Oreos and milk.  Here's sweet Larry, holding one of his precious Cher doll collectibles.  I could do nothing but laugh when he came prancing out of the house with three of them in mint condition boxes!  When Jimmy, kidding, asked him if we could take them out so the girls could play with them, he nearly swooned!
It's not often my Jimmy gets to spend quality time with a gay couple, so for this outing he actually went out and bought a new outfit.  When he got home he told me, "I can't very

 well go the boys' party without an outfit, so I bought the mannequin!"  No, he didn't literally buy the mannequin, but he did buy all the pieces of clothing being displayed on it.  In other words, Jimmy was going to this party LAYERED.  He has NEVER in his life layered a shirt over a shirt and I nearly choked when he showed me these clothes.  I figured, maybe he thinks he needs to compete with Larry the fashionista?  Well, let him at it then!  Of course, we got to their house and Larry was wearing a ratty t-shirt and faded camo pants.  Larry's got nothin' on Jimmy!  Three snaps!

Madison was excited to go to Larry's house because Sasha, his business partner/salon owner was going to be there, and Sasha does Madison's hair. She was so proud to be able to show Sasha that her pink hair extension was still in, weeks after it probably should have fallen out!  Plans were already being made for our next visit to Fringe, and what we all wanted to do with our hair.  Mikayla hasn't had a trim in over a year, so that's a no-brainer, but she also wants a few blue streaks.  Come to think of it, so do I.  We'll just have to figure out whether we should strip and dye, or do extensions.  Madison has decided she wants purple for the summer.  I thought Jimmy could use some highlights, but Sasha nixed that rather quickly, saying that most guys who highlight their hair look like "wannabes".  
So, no blondies for Jimmy!

I left the party several hours ago, but Mikayla and Madison are still there playing Wii, and Jimmy is
still there... drinking.  Oh, the snoring I'll have to endure tonight!
One last thing before I go.  All I want to say is Woooooooooooo hooooooooooooooo to California government for legalizing same sex marriages!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cool myspace layouts

cool myspace layouts

Until next time, Justine :o )

    What a fun group of peeps you got going on over there Justine! Is Jimmy actually going to let you colour Madison's hair?

  • SchmeckyGirl

    Oooh girl. You have a knack for writing.

    I couldn't see the layers in Jimmy's outfit!

    LMAO about the Cher doll. Most flamers love Cher! That's the only episode of Will and Grace I saw that I thought was funny.

    Glad you got the pics and stuff figured out so you can blog. I might be asking you about that soon.

    Justiine, who sings that version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow? It's a cover of a cool version done by a Hawaiian singer. Have you heard this version?

    Israel Kamakawiwo'ole -
    Somewhere Over The Rainbow
    It's one of my favorite songs.
