Oh What A Night!

Image
 I had a few free hours drop in my lap Friday evening, so I did what ANY gal would do. I got all dolled up in my best dress, did my make-up extra special, and went out for a glass of wine and a bite to eat.  But that's when the fun started. I even did my nails! I headed out to a nice place located in our downtown mall - Twigs Bistro. It was probably 6 months ago when I was there last.  As I walked up, the matre d' gal welcomed me. She had piercings on and around her nose that made an interesting pattern. I complimented her on the design, and she shot back with "And I love your bangs".  I got a bar table, since I was alone, and the gal tending bar gave me a smile and a "Welcome Back". She remembered serving me last time I was in, and I replied that I was impressed, since it's been so long. Service was great, and the waiter agreeded to help commemorate the evening. Only one glass of wine - don't know why my face is so red! There was another waitress th

New Post - New Experiment - Same Results?

Image
OK, my last experiment turned in the results I expected. In that, when I post a Photo Essay I get LOTS of views in a brief period of time. Now we come to The Great Experiment Part 2. A post with no photos (well, except for the Banner of my fingers - and if THAT gets your excited response, who am I to judge)(lol)  These past 2 weeks have been fun - I wrapped up 2 major projects that took up most of my free time, which allowed very little time for Julie to get Out and About. But once they were in the history books, I wasted no time in letting my Softer Side breath again.  I had recently "come out" to a male friend who expressed interest in getting together with Julie, so we had a wonderful lunch with good conversation. Since it was Sunday I went in my best black skirt, grey mock turtleneck top, black pumps and grey pantyhose.  He was very comlimentary about my outfit and overall appearance. He runs a local theater and he encouraged me to audition for Lady Macbeth! I had o
