The Ball


I just realized Arlo and I have matching hair. Wow.

My date Arlo Guthrie and I are headed over to the Willow Manor Ball today where we will drink champagne, hobnob with folks famous and not so much, dead and alive, notorious and not. It is THE blog event, something I look forward to every year.

Now I know I look a little nervous in the picture, but the truth is we puffed from a funny cigarette just as we were departing the Occupy Wall Street scene in New York, and now trying to dance is somewhat of a challenge! I feel like giggling, but I'm thinking I need to pay attention to what I'm trying to do. Safety first!!

How the hell did I get into this dress which was once worn by Twiggy? It's the Ball. It is magic. See y'all on the flip side. Follow the link on the sidebar and join us, please? Bring a dream date - anyone you want, the rules of marital fidelity, not to mention life and death, do not apply. On other days we can live disciplined, orderly lives. But today? Gotta dance!

Yep, today is the day we embrace our powers of imagination with both hands...giggle (pun intended. Love the matching hair and the Twiggy dress, daahling. Got any more funny ciggies?

Reya Mellicker said...

Tess I believe Arlo is packing a bunch of funny cigs. This is going to be a really fun day.

Pam said...

I see ya Reya! I do believe John Lennon has left my side yet again after even more of Arlo's ciggies having been more than generous with his own. You look wonderful.

Reya Mellicker said...

As do you, Pam. Cheers!!

Val said...

you look fabulous! hehe Arlo probably picked up that whacky tabacky at Alice's Restaurant?

C.M. Jackson said...

Reya--look at those legs--you go girll!!Speaking of funny cigs--I am thinking of that scene with Meryl Streep and Steve Martin in "it's complicated"...tee hee

Tony is now on the dance floor with Lady GaGa ...yikes

Sorry to hear that Leonard won't be joining the fun tonight --I so wanted to sing along to Everyone Knows...

Cheers and enjoy--you look mahvelous..c

Linda said...

You can get anything you want at Alice's restaurant, including Alice... and funny cigarettes. What a hoot. I love you Arlo!!! Are we sharing the puffs? Inhale.........

Tom said...

Arlo, really? I'm concerned now, because my date will most likey fall off the wagon...my bad because i promised to sponser her! Do you think Mr. Guthrie has relaxed in his aversion to pickles? If so, I'll stop at the Piggly Wiggly and pick up a jar of Sweet Gherkins.

Yoli said...

It was delightful meeting you and your date!

Carolina Linthead said...

Cyndy said...

What a pair! You and Arlo, that is. Have a blast at the ball!

junkthief said...

You two seem to be the perfect mix of scruffy and elegant. Black and silver are the perfect combo.

My date (The Duchess of Alba)and I had matching hair as well.

Kerry said...

Hey I knew I recognized that dress from somewhere! You look great!

Helen said...

Thanks for the toke ... my date and I literally flew around the floor!

You looked marvelous, my dear!

Arlo as good as ever! When he broke into 'City of New Orleans' I almost cried!

Tom said...

Did Arlo bring you to the ball on his motorcycle? Please tell me you wore a helmet, i'd hate for you to get bugs in your teeth.

Catfish Tales said...

Gotta dance, yeah! And Arlo's a great date, funny weed, or not! BTW, it's not every woman who'd attempt to slip into an old Twiggy discard. You rock :)

Margaret said...

Now that's the party spirit! I have a feeling you will be one of the last to leave!

lacochran's evil twin said...

Careful, Arlo looks a little grabby. Maybe you should grab him back!

steven said...

arlo - dude!! i love the slick grey arms and the oh-so-skinny and flexible legs you both have. never mind the hair - it rocks in its own universe!! i'm having a dawnfast with my date lee - we're showing up sometime early in the morning down by the stream out back of tess's place. maybe we'll see you there?! steven

The Bug said...

Well by now you're both buried in the kitchen eating snacks, aren't you? :)

Carrie Burtt said...

Boy can you dance Reya...us other gals can't keep up with you....just love your twiggy dress! :-)

Bee's Blog said...

Gotta dance! And you did it so well. Lovely to meet you.

Cheryl Cato said...

You are adorable in the "Twiggy" dress and I know you and Arlo had an eventful evening. The thing about the "funny ciggies" is they don't leave one with that hung-over feeling. I fear I had one or two martinis too many.

Reya Mellicker said...

Cheryl I blanked out most of the party by smoking AND drinking. What in the hell was I thinking??
