“Standin’ on the corner, waitin’ for my hair to dry…”

Sing that to the tune of "Standing on the Corner." Ha!

I'm pretty much ready to head downtown for our dinner tonight, just letting my hair dry a little more. (I can't stand to use blow dryers...I can hear my poor little strands of hair screaming in pain as I heat them to death.) I even put on mascara, although I haven't used it for years. I discovered something. When you get to the point where you need bifocals, it's really hard to see those tiny bottom lashes. I think I managed to end up without big clumps! So as soon as I'm a little more dry, I'll head out. Oh, I think I'll put some pants on, too. I'm so traditional that way.

Ken called a little bit ago, and it sounds like they might finish up a little early, so we'll meet some people at the Irish pub, Sean O'Casey's (Or as Ken called it, Finnegan's. Huh?) I foresee a Blue Moon in my near future! Then we'll walk down to the restaurant. The weather is cooperating so far, and I hope the rain will hold off until we get back to the hotel tonight.

I'm looking forward to a yummy dinner--I'm getting the Ahi Tuna, one of my favorites, and surprisingly, that's what the majority of attendees picked! Ken is having the tenderloin. I'm sad I won't be able to get my favorite appetizer there, escargot (butter and garlic...what's not to like?), but we're doing buffet-style appetizers, and then a sit-down dinner. I have my camera ready, so I hope to get some great pictures of this beautiful place, and I'll tell you a little of the history, too.

I don't think I'll be back on until tomorrow, so catch ya on the flip side!


  1. Have fun! I wouldn't be able to be at a restaurant that served escargot if I couldn't have them. I love those garlicky little guys!

  2. Have fun tonight! I don't blow dry my hair either, don't even own a hairdryer.

  3. Have a wonder time with your guy. And I don't blow dry my hair either. I braid it while damp and when dry, it is full and wavy :)

  4. Don't forget the big orange slice in your Blue Moon!

    My hair's so thick, that if I didn't use a hair dryer it would, literally, never dry.

  5. my oldest kid took my hair dryer so i do not even own one anymore. Take lots of pics and enjoy yourself! Can't wait to hear all about it.XO

  6. Have a great time!

    OMG - As a big homo, I have blow-dried my hair every day since 1979 (when I was 12). My mother gave me a hairdryer my freshman year of college (1986) that I used every day until it finally died about a year ago. I hardly have enough hair to dry anymore, but I still use a blow dryer.


  7. Waiting for the flip side. D

  8. Hi Beth,
    Hmmm ... Ahi Tuna? I hope that woman with the deathly fish allergy isn't around.

  9. Hope you really enjoyed your night out. Sounds like a good time may have been had by all.

  10. oy beth,i think i got your got such a turn of phrase too.lolol.deary me.hope you had a great time,love mort.xx

  11. LOL at the hair dryer. I've blown my for years without incident but I know it's probably not good for your hair. Too late for me to worry about it. Hope you are having a ball.
    Hugs, Joyce

  12. It was a fine evening, with lots of fun had by all. The weather mostly cooperated, the food was awesome, the fireworks errupted as we walked by, and the cigar bar was devine. The company, especially my bride, was the best part of it all :o)

  13. Blow dried? I always have my hair done by my stylist. She does my nails and make-up too. You're sure the creative type, Beth, trying to make yourself up by hand. You must have looked like one of those home crafts folks make for the holidays.

    .....and you're proud to be from South Bend? Oh, my. That's a bit like being proud of an ingrown toenail, eh? LOL!

    Hey, Bucko--stop being a whimpy mommy and daddy's boy and tell your parents to find their own place. Where's your backbone?


I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you?
