Uh oh…Lainey hates the Ravens! B*tch! LOL
Uh oh…Lainey hates the Ravens! B*tch! LOL
Well, sports fans, it was an ugly day in Baltimore. The weather was amazingly beautiful but the football and, I am sad to say, the fans were u-g-l-y! The Frug and I had yet another babysitter (the Frug is not frugal w/the sitters, thank goodness!) and we drove an hour up to Baltimore to meet friends of ours and see the game. The folks we met are 2 of my favorite people! Not sure if they want to be named (and their names are pretty unique) so I shall call them Gary and Mary. Great people, always ready for fun, and are just happy people…you know the couples you meet up with who snipe at each other and make you feel uncomfortable? Not Gary and Mary. I’m just sad that they are geographically undesirable and so we don’t see them all that often. 😦
So, back to the fans. You may remember I blogged about our fun anniversary night in Fell’s Point and we saw all these young, fun, attractive people? Well, apparently those people don’t go to Ravens games! 😉 The men and women dress alike. Ravens team jerseys and purple camouflage pants.
It’s a really good look. Hot actually. Heavy sarcasm. Actually, the average woman I saw today looked like this:
So, envision Edna Turnblad in a Todd Heap jersey and purple camo pants. And she’s drunk. And maybe ready to kick your ass. The Bengals pulled ahead in the 4th quarter and Edna Turnblad and her mother, daughter, and grandkids all were screaming YOU SUCK REF! at the top of their lungs. Pretty. Oh, I texted Hope (Ravens fan who does NOT look like Edna above!) and asked where she was sitting…she texted back w/the info and the helpful tidbit ‘I’m wearing my Flacco jersey’…yeah, that’ll help me find you 😉
Also pretty was the old Sea Hag in the restroom who asked me ‘do you have any eyeliner I can borrow? I’ve cried all of mine off’ Um NO, I do NOT have any eyeliner that a STRANGER can borrow. So sorry. >;-)
Btw, *I* looked cute but I felt the hate rolling off the Ravens Hags (oooh! I like that term! or would they be Ravens Whores??) They were looking at me like ‘prissy Northern Virginia beyotch in your miniskirt and Gap tee and coordinating purple scarf!’ I was scared of them.
Anyway, won’t go into too much detail about the ride home. It was as ugly as the game. I drove, the Frug cursed the Ravens and had 2 beers while balancing 7 layer dip on his lap…sexay! LOL
** Editing in–The Frug says my assessment of the Ravens fans is completely inaccurate and that they are the same as any other NFL fans. Oookkkaaaayyyyy. Anyone want to weigh in on this?**
12 years! Wahooo! Time flies in the Land of the Frugal! We went up to Baltimore to celebrate our love – a beloved tradition – and no kids! Woo hoo!
Stayed at the Admiral Fell Inn. So cute and it’s right in super-fun Fell’s Point! Trivia: we may have conceived Master Pedro there when the Ravens were in the playoffs on New Year’s Eve ’00 😉 Spent the afternoon watching college football at Max’s. Had a SURLY bartender who thought he was super funny. He was acting like I was being High Maintenance when I ordered my hamburger PLAIN and with all condiments OFF the plate! Harrumph. Irritated me beyond belief! But, after I got my Zin on, all was good! Got some great dining recommendations from our nieces, Emily and Stacey…ended up at Pazo. Had yummy tapas and sangria! And the people watching was terrific. I was surprised at how many ‘beautiful people’ were there. I was on the lookout for Sea Hags since we were at a seaport but no! When we first walked in, it looked like a SuperModel Convention! The Frug was NOT complaining! 😉
One important note about the Anniversary is that I usually get a pass to spend some $$ on a fun outfit and mani/pedi, etc. I actually wore, for the first time, the infamous SKINNY jeans! Yes, I managed to squeeze my ginormous calves into them! Paired them w/a charcoal gray semi-drapey halter top w/some fun jewels at the neckline. And, of course, wore a pair of sky-high heels…always trying to lengthen those legs! My hair cooperated, despite the rain. Life was good.
Oh, and it seems like my new skin care routine (the ‘reverse the sun damage’ plan) is starting to work! The Frug said that my skin seemed smoother and that the dark spots are less noticeable. Yeah!
So, we partied like rockstars but had to get up semi-early to get home to the kiddies. Peter had the sitter (the awesome CRISTA!) text me at 9am to get our ETA! So, home, picnic, football…All in all, a good anniversary AND a good way to kick-off the next 12 years…
Was thinking of calling this Amusing Musings but then got wrapped up in ‘well, what if people don’t think they are amusing?” (as if! LOL)…then my mind went to ‘amuse-bouche‘…know what that is? Like an appetizer — but my mind went to amused BUSH…and, then I thought, well, MINE is certainly not amused…will give the State of the Uterus in a little bit…with ample warnings for the squeamish and/or male…
So, had the Bowling Party on Sat. night. You would not believe what I wore…a denim mini skirt, some sort of tee shirt and my Aniston-esque nude leg-lengthening heels.
Honestly, what kind of an Old Whore would wear that to her child’s 8th birthday party?? Yeesh. Looked whore-ish but at least my legs weren’t tree stumps, right? LOL and sigh. Standard kiddie party…except for the Conga Line and mini-dance party 😉 Gotta love having a few little girls at a party…they *know* how to party! LOL Minor Peter issue. The child is VERY competitive. And a piss-poor loser. (btw, I am neither one of these things…Frug? You?) He won the first game…with odds heavily in his favor…used the little ramp thingy AND had one of us aiming the ramp AND loading the ball for him. Well, round #2 ended w/him in 2nd place. He had the nerve to CRY! WTH? He knows he has CP…he knows that we are loading the deck for him…and he still cries? I had to go all ‘tough love’ on him b/c I didn’t want him to embarrass himself in front of his friends. And get this…the boys were so sweet and like ‘it’s okay, Peter’ to him. What happened to a good old fashioned ‘dude, don’t be a baby!’??? LOL
Chit-chatted w/the moms while the kiddies bowled. Thanks to my inappropriate attire I wasn’t allowed to help Peter too much w/his bowling so I actually had time to chat! The discussion turned to cute moms of whom we are jealous…I found out that one fun mom gets up and runs 4 miles in the a.m. And she has 5 kids! Another mom (of 6!!!!!) gets up at 4:30a.m. to TEACH a Boot Camp class like 4-5 times a week!! Have to say that I was awed. But not inspired. Knowing that made me feel very bitchy…and tired…and HUNGRY. LOL
Finished out the weekend w/the kiddies since the Frug went to a Ravens game. We went to church (and it wasn’t even a Donut Sunday! LOL) and got a little ZING from the priest! We saw him as we came out of the church…he greeted us, and said ‘you all look so comfortable’…hmmm, comfortable? Not good! Boys were just in khakis shorts and button-down shirts…I was in a cute teal dress…shoulders UNCOVERED and perhaps a little on the short side. Imagine that 😉 The priest is one of the nicest human beings and still ZINGed me. Sigh. Could have been worse, I suppose. He could have made a comment like ‘gee, so good to see you without a free donut in your hand’ 😉 LOL
