I tried my hand at making a Saint's t-shirt. I came across a good logo, but just couldn't get it to the right size and position on my shirt. The cost of materials for every try was starting to be a bother so I decided to read up on some helpful hints - but I'm still not reading the directions! The reason I was trying for a Saints t-shirt is because the Saints are playing the Bucs this weekend and one of the many wonderful people I've met at Fibber's, Ajay, is a Bucs fan. We're trying to get a wager placed on the game; if the Saints win she has to accompany me to a Heath Eversham concert, but she hasn't decided what she would like if hell freezes over and the Bucs win. Heath is a very good jazz/new age pianist who has had an impact on my life, I'll try and write more about him in a future post. I need to remember to let Ajay know that I intend to wear a tux to the concert so she can plan to dress accordingly.
As good DJs pass through Fibbers I'll often join their fan groups and get notices when they're playing at different venues. I've of course joined DJ Jocelyn's group, she is a prolific spinster (tee hee), plus x5Daddie's group and a couple of others. I'll follow them to the other venues if I'm not busy, and often join the fan groups of these venues and get their notices too. I've been really getting overloaded with text messages lately, so I've gotten brutal with cutting back on the groups I belong to.
One of the venues that Jocelyn led me to is called the Nude West Nightclub. I'm not sure why they call it Nude as they get rather upset when people misunderstand and show up naked thinking it's a nudist colony or something like that. In any case it has a nice, large dance floor, stage, DJ area and tables and chairs around the edges. Their one concession to nudity is every Tuesday night they have Topless Tuesday. This is a costume-themed event; recently they've had Cowboys and Cowgirls, Oriental, and Beachwear nights. Last night was Tits and Tats - come dressed in your favorite tattoos! I went out and bought a new g-string type thing over the weekend to wear to better show off my tattoos; it was made to look like a tux and even had a little red bow-tie at the top. (And no, that's not the tux I was planning to wear to see Heath.) So I slipped it on and went through my collection of temporary tattoos trying to find the best combination. Nude West offers $1000 prizes to the best-dressed, in-theme male and female at the club each Tuesday night, and though I've never won I still keep trying.
I had about an hour to kill before the contest started so I found a Tiki bar with a live performer and sat to listen until it was time to get ready. x5Daddie was DJing at Fibber's but his show would go on well past the start of Topless Tuesday and I didn't want to miss that. I was about to start getting ready for the contest when I get a message from Ajay saying that she was at Fibber's, Daddie was playing and where was I? I bowed to the inevitable, said I'd be there in a bit, and headed over. Spent the rest of the night at Fibber's. Anutte was hostess again and she keeps things rolling. Alaska showed up too, and we all had a good time. Fibber's was crowded even though a large part of the usual crowd was over at Topless Tuesday. I sure hope Ajay appreciates the sacrifice I made!
