Yester Year -- The 90's!


Let the heckling begin. This is a step back in time. The year was 1992. Ah, a good year-indeed.
I've done a lot of things and yes, sadly I've even been auctioned off like a slab of fresh meat! True. All for a good cause. Of course.
What's even more amusing I was one of the highest bids! He must have really wanted me. In my hay day
I was a pretty "hot"commodity. Stand in line and take a number. I can't believe it that I actually got a thrill (insert poking eye out now) and enjoyed the glitz and glamour of a formal black tie event and all the blah, blah, blah that went along with it! The endless primping to have every hair in place. I actually reveled in it. Not anything I would consider today. Come to think about it I'd rather have a root canal. Too Schmancy for my "juicy wearing bum". I had been asked to donate my body for a fund raiser --Bid for Chicklette's. I was recently divorced. The ink had had barely dried on the paper . This is me with my sky high aqua net hair extensions (yes, yes I spent hours at the beauty shop to get that look and obscene $$) with my date for the evening(no he was not an escort-yes we were just friend's!)---"hot" divorced neighbor and no I don't know if he's still single. I imagine he was removed from the party circuit rather quickly and taken straight to bed. Anyway that's me dancing (with a drink in my hand?) with the oh-so famous no names mentioned--still single last I heard never been married get your hooks into bachelor of the year who bought my treasure chest!

What did he buy besides moi? My envy of all consisted of:

Complimentary free air fare (compliments of CAL) to the Dominican Republic. Another playground favorite but preferably while there is no coup attacks.

Complimentary one week stay at friends home in Dominican Republic with housekeeper and cook to boot. Neighbor's to Oscar De la Renta. ooh-la-la.

Complimentary one week stay at friends home in St Thomas perks of working the gold class line for CAL. Customer's were always throwing themselves at me.

Case of Kendal Jackson. Loved my wine back then too-hooked up with wine distributor.

20-Complimentary restaurant gift certificates to the cities top dining facilities. Dined in all of them.

Complimentary hotel accommodations anywhere in the USA--compliments of ex-husbands employer. ha ha. I was shameless. I was not going to be outdone by local radio persoanlity-. I was highly competitive. Still am.

Complimentary Zoo passes friends with the infamous zoo director-T.V. personality for a year.

Complimentary gift certificates to the top hair salon in the city. Obviously I wasn't a customer with the "Marge Simpson wig I was sporting"!

Complimentary movie passes for a year.

Gift certificates to many of the top boutiques in the area.

And many many more..... I was "well connected". Bwahahaha..... I was somebody. *snicker* no, now I'm gasping with laughter! This is so not who I am today.

Total purchase price $4,500!

So how did the guy with the cyan bow-tie get into a black tie fund raiser?

BTW: You now lost your right to snicker at my hair in my old pictures. And I'll publicly admit that you outdid me in the "OMG" category :-)

Steffie B. said...

Ok....I could compete with that "back then" I was Donna Mills all the way baby! Big Hair....so laughed at the "Aqua Net"...that big honkin can that sprayed all over. You and I would have been major trouble together.....have a similar story, but oh can't blog it! You are one hot babe Rony......sizzlin hot!

Ms. Dragonfly said...

WTF??? I just lost my comment.
Sorry now you get sloppy seconds.
OK so in your past life you were a call girl, got it. Charged $4500/night. Pricey, but I guess with the Paris hair extentions, you needed too.
Oh I'm just kidding.
But I am a little confused, R U still single with twins???
And also, I was going to post a flashback hair do thing, and you stole my idea! Get out of my head!
Love you,
Ms. Dragonfly

Ms. Dragonfly said...

PS I'm unsure, do I now call you Barbie or Karen from Will and Grace?

theghelertertwins.blogspot.com said...

First off: Stuffin Steff, you can not post a comment like that and then run! I want all the gory dets!

Secondly: Thank you Mr. Brian. I've been reading your posts for awhile on some of the ladies (?) sites.

Thirdly: Dragon Slayer, Very married over here... How do you think I get through a day?! And do you think the CCAA would have I trusted me to raise the monkeys?
I've been called both... now--don't be jealous.

Fourth: I must go as my kids have their birthday boxes on the deck with the scissors (bad mom) trying to open them pre-birthday! Where do they learn this stuff??

Fifth: D, I told you I had some scary shit!
