Lime and the Blue Sausages...Great Name for a Rock Band

Well, yesterday's post seemed to generate a lot of questions among commenters. Since I have no other ideas at the moment am eager to please, I thought it fitting that I should respond. (Thanks, James, for showing me the groovy strike through thingy.)


le chat qui a peur said...
yes....but what kind of panties were you wearing!?!?
See-thru ones from Frederick's of Hollywood, where I got the corset.

lecram sinun said...
did you say corset???

Yep, I said corset. I said it loud, long, and, clear. COOOOOORRRRSSSSEEEEEET.


Logophile said...
You ARE a good friend, Limey, and you looked lovely.But seriously, why DID you save the dress?
Um, cuz I paid for it and I am deluded enough to think I may have a use for it. I also still have the dyed to match shoes which I am sure inspired Steve Martin's 'Cruel Shoes' routine. Oddly, I cannot find the necklace and earrings. I liked them a lot. I think certain teenage Limelettes absconded with them. Suggestions for uses for either the dress or the shoes may be left in the comment box. Winner may be awarded. I know how to use the corset. Mwahahaha.


M said...
lovely...how long did you wear the dress? all the way through the reception or did you rip it off and wash your face before hitting the dance floor?
I actually wore it until I went home that night. I could not, however, sit after eating dinner. I still could dance my ass off though. I removed the shoes while we were still taking pictures at the church.


Schadeboy said...
Of course, the question that obviously crops up from this post is what kind of underwear you wore for your best friend?
See response to 'le chat.'


Laurie said...
At least the dress wasn't pink with big poofy shoulders and a huge bow on the ass... :-P
Agreed. That may have ended the friendship.

I've seen the corset picture and i'm taking bribes!
Shaddup! I have India stories...

Robert van de Walle said...
You're a good friend. I know how much makeup is anathema to you!Did you mention a corsett pic? Woohoo! I'm waiting with baited breath...
See response to 'lecram.' Baited breath? It smells like nightcrawlers? I may surprise you all one day...

We will do crazy things for our friend's won't we?
Oh yes indeed. This friend is one who tried on prom gowns with me, for kicks and giggles, a month after I had my 3rd baby. She came to the hospital with toys when I broke my arm and then took incriminating photos (after she combed my hair for me). She is one of the very few people to ever see me staggering drunk (hahaha, she's the one who GOT me staggering drunk). Even though she was a bit horrified, she handled it with humor during said period of inebriation when her hubby and I discussed the merits of 'swallowing.' We've cried together till we thought no tears were left. We've laughed together until we couldn't breathe. We've seen each other through shit we wouldn't wish on enemies. She is worthy of anything she could ever ask of me. I just like to razz her about the blue sausage and make-up so she knows how much I love her.

Thank you to everyone else for the kind compliments.

So now tell me about something you've done in the name of friendship that you wouldn't have done otherwise or tell me about the friend you deem worthy of any request.

And have a happy weekend!


EDIT: Here's a pic I thought APJ and I might need if I ever make it to Fresno.

Have a great weekend all.

I once ran interference (or at least tried to) for a friend who was dating 3 women ... when they all turned up at the club he was playing at the same time. Oy!

Oh lol.....too funny!

James Goodman said...

You're quite welcome (for the strikethrough code)

Well, without going into too many details, when I was in college, I found myself in a situation where I had to bust out a driverside window and drag a person out of their car to protect somebody. That was big fun for everyone involved. I thought I was going to jail for that one, but the police officer who showed up on the scene, seemed to be quite understanding and told me that as long as I paid for the man's window, he didn't see any reason for any charges to be brought against me.

MyUtopia said...

Well i hope you had a fabulous time in your fabulous dress!

snavy said...

In the name of friendship, I put myself (physically)between step sisters and lost a cousin (well, she basically assaulted me when she couldn't reach her step sister - she actually drew blood - since then, I didn't see much need for her or her for me).

I'd do it again too.

Pole dancing on the subway!!!!
what a great place to practice....

The Village Idiot said...

Your shoes may be cruel but I want a little mood lighting, a nice blue.....

AndyT13 said...

I love that sign! Especially funny because a girl who I once banged (or was it banged once?) pole danced on the subway to the amusement of all in attendance.
Nothing like a hot horny woman showing off to make a long train ride bearable.

Logophile said...

There is actually very little I wouldn't do,
the immoral is definitely out, and
most of the illegal stuff,
but if there is a claim on my loyalty and love, that is about all that is off limits in cases of neccesity.
I've worn hideous wedding dresses and driven for miles, done things I hate doing and lost alot of sleep. I've gone to parties when I wanted to stay home, I've stayed in when I wanted to go out, I've watched sappy movies and relayed messages, I've read suggested books I wouldn't otherwise touch and worn clothes I'd never otherwise buy. And I am a richer, happier, better person for most it.
Friends are a good thing.

No Dancing = No Fun!

Solitaire said...

That picture is hilarious! I love it! :-)

I LOVE corsets! Fredrick's is ALWAYS a good choice too!

Happy Friday!

Blither said...

Gary said...

That picture is one of the funniest I have seen in a long time. Thanks for the laugh.

Charles said...

Huh...? Crap... I need to visit more often! Michelle, please e-mail me... I have a very special musical present for you!

Do the rest of you want this present, too?

xx

Tommy said...

I've told you about what I would do and described my perfect friendship so I won't repeat it there. Lets just say good friends are precious as gold and I am proud to call you mine. Now about that corset pic ... you got my e-mail. HEE!
