Bits/Pieces

Friday night was SO much fun! MJ & VW ended up being Britney Spears (complete with Chee-tos, pregnant tummy and much-dropped baby) and K-Fed (I swear, the guy is a dead ringer for K-Fed!). CN looked great in his Super Troopers costume. Vermont, our Rat Pack friend who happened to be in town, went as a character from Major League (please don't ask me who!). His roommate was a hunter and wore camouflage. The Runner was the Burger King and his friend (girlfriend?) was Kendra Wilkinson, one of the Girls Next Door. KT couldn't go because she was sick.

When we got to the party, there were lots of snacks and a keg. There were about 50 people there, I'd say, so it was a good crowd. Here were some of the costumes:

Little Red Riding Hood & Wolf (a couple -- cute idea, huh?)
Batman, Robin and the Joker (three friends)
Roman soldiers (complete with fake, bloody wounds)
a fairy (who smoked like a chimney, which was funny to me)
Jessica Rabbit
a witch
various X-Men characters
Indian princess (that was the hostess)
Dr. Seymour Bush (a "gynecologist" -- get it?)
cowboys/cowgirls
another Burger King guy
a female gangster
a flapper
Catholic school girl & guy (that was E & B)
Cleopatra
Coach Steve Spurrier
Dog, the Bounty Hunter
Borat

......and finally.........drumroll, please........the winner of the costume contest was a guy who dressed as this guy:

And from the moment he walked in, everyone knew he would win. The costume was just too funny. He was so tall he had to keep ducking in all the doorways.

Despite all of my Paris Hilton accessories, no one knew who the hell I was. Probably because I don't really look like her, even with a blond wig on. Oh well, it was still fun. MJ and I got into a Britney/Paris catfight and VW and CN tried to break it up. We got it on film for posterity's sake, you know. Then she and I made up and were friends.......until we got into another mock cat fight, also on film. It was fun. CN kept arresting everyone.

MJ's pregnant Britney belly was so well-done, some other girls at the party thought she was really pregnant, and when they saw MJ smoking and drinking, they were so offended, they went inside and talked smack! It wasn't until late in the party that they realized she just had a pillow taped to her tummy, so they ran out to tell us what they had thought, and we all had a good laugh.

CN was quite the little social butterfly that night, and I hardly got to talk to him! He was so busy talking to VW, Vermont, Vermont's roommate and The Runner, I didn't even realize he was getting trashed! By the time we left, he was slurring his words. He cracked me up the whole way home.

Somehow, we lost track of Vermont. Rumors circulated of he and Butter having hooked up (which bothered E, because she and Country Boy are on-again, off-again) but I am starting to think those rumors are not true. We still don't know where Vermont spent the night! There was a lot of confusion, drunkenness and phone calls going on. B & E thought we were all following them to a bar, but when we got there, we couldn't find anyone. So it was pretty chaotic by 3 am. No one knew where anyone was. We are still emailing about it, trying to get the facts straight.

CN and I crashed out hard-core and didn't wake up until about 11:30 the next day! I took a shower and then went out to lunch with his parents, who had me in stitches the whole time. After we ate, he and I were total couch potatoes for the rest of the day! I couldn't even stay awake for the USC/Tennessee football game -- CN had to keep waking me up for all the big plays!

And no, I DON'T want to talk about the game. Those refs made terrible calls and that last kick was total.......ok, that's all I'm going to say. *sniff!*

Speaking of USC, you have probably seen this in the news. Please keep these families in your minds today. It's such a sad story. My friend, Butter, knows the family that owns the house that burned down, so this hit pretty close to home for her. And please, since daylight savings is this weekend anyway, use this story as a reminder to check your fire alarms in your home.

Although I'm sad about the students and the football game, I'm going to try and focus on getting excited for Indiana Basketball!!!! The first exhibition game is this Sunday. I would like to just throw out there that the Hoosiers are ranked 9th in the ESPN/USA Today pre-season poll. So for all the UNC, Duke and Kentucky fans (my favorite teams to hate!)-- get ready!!!

But before all of that starts up, I have to say that I am the MOST excited about THIS new season, which starts tonight!!!!



I read in People magazine that there will be an episode this season where Julian McMahon does naked push ups!! Be still my beating heart!!!


Because I talk so much about Julian McMahon's hotness, I think CN is a little bit jealous! But he doesn't have anything to worry about. The chances of me ever meeting Julian are pretty slim. Besides, I highly doubt I'll ever have a conversation like this with Julian:

CN: Hey, I need to take you out on Thursday. We should do something nice.
Me: Oh....kay. Sounds good. But um....why?
CN: It's the first.

It will be our 2 month anniversary. What guy celebrates the 2 month anniversary???? I'm telling you, he's unreal. I didn't even realize the first of the month was our anniversary. Good grief.....

What? The Slim Jim guy won?!?!? I would have voted for the Kendra Wilkinson costume. You do have a picture of that and your Paris Hilton costume - don't you?

"CN and I crashed out hard-core and didn't wake up until about 11:30 the next day!"

Oh my...

Aw, how fun! No costumes for me this year - I can't make it for mid-week Halloweens!

Congrats on your upcoming two months! CN sounds like such a great guy, with all the flowers and consideration he's showing. What a keeper.

Hey, and I never got to thank you earlier for the nice note you sent when the fires were going crazy over here. Thank you! And thanks also for being so nice and offering to help send some things her way! You're just too cool. I think she's going to be okay; we've had about 70+ people reach out to her too. Sometimes people just surprise me with how kind they can be. :)

We need to see pictures!

VB,

Delurking to say: I've met Julian. In person. At a party in LA. He's hotter in real life. I didn't think he was hot on TV.... until I saw him in the flesh. Truly tall, dark and handsome. Yum.

OK, back to your regularly scheduled program!

Oh, and Happy Halloween!

Wow, VW does look a lot like K-Fed. I don't know if that's a good thing or not. lol. He also looks a little like Keanu Reeves if he shaved. I used to have a shirt signed by Keanu from when he played in his crappy band. I wasn't proud of it.

Julian McMahan reminds me of the little bow-tied dog from Garfield--more hair than person. There's a guy who needs some manscaping.

Jen said...

Sounds like a lot of fun. I agree with everyone else - we need to see some photos! :)

Virginia Belle said...

rwa-- yeah, it really was the best costume. no one knew who kendra wilkinson was. she had to keep telling everyone, as did i. it took everyone the rest of the weekend to recover from that party!

DD-- hey, let me know if you do end up needing help or whatever. i'd be happy to send her some stuff. i have a ton of unused things at my house because i have packrat tendencies. and yes, *sigh* CN is a major keeper! :)

alison & jen -- um.....i am too much of a wuss to do that. i am trying to hold on to the shred of anonymity that i have left. i suck, i know.

jane milton -- OMG. you are my hero!!! is he nice? funny? totally charming? did you make out with him? because i don't think i could control myself around him. seriously, i think i would sexually assault him and end up in jail with a big grin on my face! more details, please!!!!

PH-- yes, VW does look like K-Fed/Keanu. Weird, huh? as far as Julian goes, no, he doesn't need manscaping! he looks fantastic! manly and rugged. mmmm!

I guess I understand where you're coming from as far as your anonymity is concerned. It's just fun reading about someone, while having a mental picture of them in your mind, and then finding out they look totally different (or exactly the same) as you pictured them. But until you change your mind, I'll keep the mental picture I have (and you totally are a brunette in my mind, even though I think I've read that you're a blonde). And CN looks nothing like Farva from Super Troopers. haha
