Girls Night Out!

I guess you could say it was kinda of a Girl's Weekend. 

First of all.  Friday night.  We went to see...Girls Night Out! 
This had the potential to be a lot of fun....

....but I was not the only one in our group who was disappointed.  
Yes, to make it clear, it is an all male revue.

First of all, we learned that Diesels concert venue is in a bowling alley.  And it's a dive.  It is a really small place and they seriously oversold their tickets.  One of the "entertainers" did a Facebook Live event before it started and he said there were between 350-450 people there. It was insanely packed.  it had barely started when the woman behind me poured her drink down my back. She apologized and told me it was just soda water, so at least I didn't smell like a booze factory after that.  I don't think any of us had more than 2 beers and Laurie & I had a shot.  

We got there when the doors opened and got to choose our seats.  We had 11 people in our group, so we got in the 2nd & 3rd rows. Apparently the guy doing the seating forgot there was supposed to be a VIP section in the first couple rows!  They kept announcing that those rows needed to be cleared, but nobody actually came and told us directly, so PPPPBTH!  Screw the VIPs. 
It was all about us!

The show started an hour late.  They announced that you could actually be on the stage during the routines - and the stage was mobbed with women signing up.  They didn't however announce that it was $30!  Then after each routine, they did "hot seats" where you could go on stage and pay $20 to let the "entertainer" grind on & manhandle you for a minute or so.  

So there were 4 guys & the announcer.  Which is good, because they'd do a short "group" routine, then the spotlight guy of that set would do 2 partial songs, then there would be 20 minutes or more of the hot seat business.  It got old.

And the woman who brought her significant other out with her & her friends.  Really?  Why would you make a guy go with you to something like this?  And why would he want to go?   There's a story behind that and I probably don't want to know it!

They had the Navy guy.  The "Cowboy", the Cop, the Fireman and the biker announcer (Mr. Nude North America 2015 & has been on the cover of Playgirl, but I'm not sure when. He had to have been close to 50!) 
I was distracted on how many things I saw WRONG with this uniform!  
If you're gonna play Navy, make it authentic! (I know, I'm a dork!)

None of the guys could dance.  That guy ^ ^ seemed like a jerk.  He looked bored and gave off a negative vibe & a lot of arrogance.  He was really rough with those poor drunk chicks.  None were particularly attractive - but one we decided was "cute", like a puppy. He actually smiled & looked like he was having fun.  One guy was pretty good looking and of course we saw him the least.  The guy on the right up there had a phenomenal bod.  Like WOW.  

Laurie, Linda & I were the last of our group to leave - and we still left before it was over.  Linda dropped me off at home shortly after midnight.  
  We had a heavy frost Saturday morning.

Saturday, Randy flew out to Arkansas.  We went to breakfast & I drove him to the airport. Then I came home, grabbed Angel and we met up with Mom & the sisters at the craft show we go to every year.  I was bummed that I didn't really see anything I wanted or needed this year.  I got a neat bird-seed wreath for the mother-in-law.  And I always buy something from this little old man who sells awesome hand-turned wood items.  I found a beautiful keychain that holds toothpicks made out of several types of wood.  Then I got the cats a catnip mat.
This was hilarious!  I tossed the mat down.  Soon after, Chester showed up, sniffing the air until he found it - then laid across it.  Next came Daisy (look at her face! Dying!) also sniffing the air as she came around the corner.  She didn't know what to think of it, so she was more cautious at first.  Lastly came Maddie - following her nose.  Needless to say, it was a hit.  Until they started to get rambunctious & fights broke out.  I took the mat away and had to hang the rug outside! 

Saturday afternoon, I dinked around in the yard, cutting flowers back & cleaning up the flowerbeds.  I was surprised by this big ol' praying mantis.  I felt kind of bad for cutting down his flowers, so I had to relocate him onto the bush. 
 The trees are waiting until Thanksgiving to drop their leaves!  The far one is turning yellow & losing some slowly, but the closer tree is still mostly green. 

It's going to be pretty quiet without Randy for so long.  He comes home early next week.  I'm going to finally get the house de-halloween-ified.  Aw hell.  I won't even bother with the fall stuff, other than what's out already.  I'll start with Christmas stuff after Thanksgiving.  

Speaking of Christmas - I put some stuff on layaway tonight.  I'm getting a late start this year!  I have no idea what to get for anyone, other than the usual socks & underwear package and some clothes.  Angel just texted me a pair of shoes she wants and she mentioned tickets to a Red Wings game (getting 4, she's not going without me!!)  But I have no idea what to tell Randy for me, and I haven't heard anything from him yet.  This is a struggle. 

How's your holiday planning coming along?
