|Me and domestic and disco goddess, Chaz, trying on her fascinators|
Our host was the fantastic Chaz who has collections of: wigs, jewelery that drapes around your head, feather earrings and fascinators. We tried on some of her fascinators. Then exhausted, us oldies settled into the comfy sofas near the dessert table and talked about cholesterol levels and various aches and pains. Periodically one of us would rise to fill our plates with some of the 100lb of ham and turkey Chaz had cooked that day. And sometimes a young 'un would approach us and talk about their art installation at Burning Man which was very nice indeed.
There is a certain amount of madness (and oldness) creeping into my life and it has bubbled to the surface lately.
1. Mad thing one: I love all these foods below: marshmallows, tinned tomato soup, tinned fruit, saltine crackers with plastic cheese, rice pudding. Washed down with non-alcoholic beer because I'm trying not to drink so much (not that I have a problem mind you...oh-ho-no!) But all in one meal? Yes, this was Thursday dinner.

2. Mad thing two: Sat morning I booked a 9am haircut for all four kids, at the same time as their piano lesson. (To add to the fun, one child was at a birthday sleepover and another had basketball.) Instead of canceling anything, I drove maniacally back and forth between our house and the hairdresser for three hours.

3. Mad thing three: I was devastated to hear that my bum shot was not one of the three holiday pics selected to screen on Jumbotron in Times Square over the holidays. But what was I thinking? Below is one of the winning shots...It's my friend Lesley and her fam. Lesley made the costumes herself. Say. No. More.
|Need to look a little more festive, peeps....|
Pondering my weekend I mused: "Am I going mad? Madder-than-a-meat-axe kind of mad?"
Friend said: "Jody, don't you see? You're not mad. It just that you're nearly 50 - you're started to go through... um, menopause."
Oh, so not mad then.... Just menopause....Menooopa-uas-sa!-sa!-sagagh!
