All names tooken...Looking Back, Pressing Ahead
As you can see, I've added a mask to the wall and changed my outfit from what I was wearing in the last picture to what I am wearing now, minus the KISS makeup. I ALWAYS used to wear KISS makeup when I hosted my Blump Bashes IRL!!!
I'd usually serve one of my famous casseroles which I made the night before and kept in the freezer so all I'd have to do was pop it in the oven when guests started arriving. It usually consisted of some kind of pasta with hamburger, cheese and assorted veggies. And usually I served cake and ice cream for dessert. It didn't have to be anyone's birthday. I just enjoyed celebrating life and having all my friends here with me.
One of these days I'll have a real Blump again where I can host real parties and invite folks IRL! I've missed doing that. Alcohol was seldom served. We didn't really need it. We were just high on life. My landlady used to think surely we were high on SOMETHING because we all used to laugh so much. We'd usually get the giggles over wacky word games like Mad-Libs or the one where you pass folded sheets of paper around to finish sentences and end up with hillarious mixed-up stories. I knew nothing about Asperger's Syndrome back then, but most of my friends tend to be kind of quirky and eccentric like myself and the occassional "NT" would think he was at something akin to the Mad Hatter's Tea Party because some of us even have our own language to some extent. Examples of our dialect can be found in logodaedeli!!
I was the cook, hostess and deejay all rolled into one, not to mention providing live entertainment on my guitar while supper cooked. People got to know my songs and sing along with me.
Janette usually brought at least one or two of her stuffed animals, usually of the ladybird variety. Her oldest, and most favorite stuffed ladybird, Fluffy, particularly ejnoyed "Switched on Bach" and occassionally appeared to propel me around the premises to what we call the famous "Bug Dance"!!!
Someday I will have parties again once my life has established a predictable routine. I practised my guitar for about 20 minutes today and I'm glad this drawing did not get "eaten" by my stupid computer as did my previous attempt at it earlier today. GRRRR!!
