One Burbon, one scotch and one beer

This kids, is my last post for the week. I know I know, I will hold your hankies for you while you blow.

The first day of class was good, although I appear to be the elder in the school, I mean holy shit, how did 33 get to be so damn old?

While on our trip to the ill fated Def Leppard show, I met this couple. It was a husband and wife. They were sitting on the bench outside the hotel when I saw them.

I was just walking back from lunch, and I was wearing my Def Leppard fanclub shirt, because even though the pricks bailed on me, I was still representing...cause that's how I roll.

The man says to me..hey, you going to the show too huh?

I was like.." well I WAS"

These poor people had NO bloody idea it was not happening..So we chatted for a long while cause neither of us had anything better to do.

They kept telling me how I had an accent. I'm like, do you know what an accent is? Because this gal isn't buying. it .I do not have one.

They said we sound Canadian.


Evey time we talked they just giggled their asses off. Especially when I did. It was giving me a complex.

Anyway, later that evening we ran into them again and the wife asked if we wanted to go to a comedy club. Across the street is this place called The B.O.B. which is a nightclub/bar.

One floor had a live band and the 3rd floor is a comedy club.

So we went there for a few laughs, and trust me, it was hard to get me laughing.

We saw a few comedians I had seen on Comedy Central. So that was nice.

After the show one comedian made a comment about my Lepp shirt. I told him how bummed I was and whatnot, and then he asked me out.


Holy shit. First a roadie of the band asked me out, now this yahoo.

I checked to make sure the girls were inside my shirt, because ya never know if I'm given a peep show and them thinking I'm easy...

After I turned him down, he started making fun of Def Leppard, like he was getting back at me for not going out with him.

I told him at that point if I wasn't so damn tired and so damn homicidal I would likely kidney bunch him and them serve him his balls on a platter. But since I was in a very bad mood I would leave him be, cause I may end up killing him.

He then told me he was sorry and gave me his business card.

what an asshole.

On the train ride there and back my mother and I were so stinking bored that we would text each other, while sitting right next to each other.

Now that is desperate for some attention.

I always hated texting, and thought people looked retarded doing it.

Hello, I'm Flip Flop Momma and I cant stop texting.

I am not ignoring you guys, I'm just so damn tired and don't have many minutes to spare anymore..

Im gone to school from 730am-6pm and every Tuesday 1230-9...plus an hour drive there and back..

This whole school thing is cutting into my lazy time.

Next Friday is my birthday, so Im hopin all my freinds and family have arranged a private Lepp show for me, where they can only perform shirt less and well pant less.

I mean, the fuckers owe me.


Karin said...

I would be afraid of you during a pantless private show. See you have several people confirming that you are hot and not fat. Anyway I am sorry you didn't get to see the band, I am sure they are sad about pissing off their #1 fan. Good luck with school don't study too hard.

Haphazardkat said...

Sucks about your band leaving you hanging. Bastards.
I hope they get a bad case of jock itch.

Happy Pre-Birthday!

Gette said...

Welcome to the world of commuting to school. Blech. Get good stuff for your 'pod and an iTrip. Well worth it.

CMB said...

Happy early birthday. Glad school is going well. My Mom went at 40, so you are still a youngster. I too think Def Lep owes you a private show. Get some rest.

catscratch diva said...

If I was a totally rich skank, who had a pool boy and personal manicurist.... I would sooo go and find the boys' manager and arrange a private and mostly nekkid concert just for you, Precious!

JoeInVegas said...

And, just who would be shirtless and pantless? Can I come by too?

Patti said...

Happy early Birthday!

KrazyMom said...

First off, don't go saying your 33 just yet! You have another week to enjoy being 32!!!

Too funny about you and your mom texting! That is hard up for entertainment.

Have a better week.

Rachel said...

I just read all about your trip on the previous post. Gee, how depressing to travel all that way and they don't show. I think I agree with your Dad about finding a new band to follow. Sorry!!! :)

Good luck with school. You are going to be one busy woman!

Shannon said...

Don't look at it as being the oldest in the class, look at it as being the coolest in the class. You'll soon have them saying, I wish my mom was as cool as you, after a few Lep concert stories. Teehee.

Simply Scarlet said...

Hey, I can't believe the news on Def Lepp. Hopefully, they'll make it up to you next time!

I know you'll be busy, but I hope you make time to celebrate and have a happy birthday!

So Not The Bradys said...

I get told all the time that I have an accent and that I have a very distinct voice. It gives me a major complex when people say, "I didn't recognize you, but I knew I heard the voice before." I'm also told that I sound like I'm from MI.

I'm from IN, and that's where we live. My husband is from upstate NY. His mom says that I talk funny, but that "thankfully" her grandkids don't.

I can always tell when my husband has worked with someone from the east coast. He comes home with a NY twang.

Anyway, good luck with school. Maybe you can open a salon and call it "Curl Up and Dye." Okay, you can boo me, bad joke. heh

Patti said...

Where are you going to school?

1 plus twins said...

i think it is a mid west accent cuz i get that too out here. i mean i don't hear it but i get lots of comments on it.

that is too funny that you and your mom were texting right next to each other. i hate to admit it but i have done that on occasion also.

only you would have a story like the comedy club one. too funny.

sorry i have't been bloging or commenting too much just going thru shit. i will have to email my cell to you so we can text each other next friday on our birthdays! man we are old losers. lol

Thinking Sage said...

damn 2 ask outs????
you musta had your ho shoes on!!

Hate you didnt get to see the show, that sucks!!!!!!!

Freak Magnet said...

Well, despite the huge Def letdown, you were obviously hot! :) Personally, I might've kidney punched that ass just for the anger release.... ;)

gina said...

hey- I know that (title) song. Good Luck with school and hope your birthday is happier than you sound right now. :)

pack of 2 said...

I have also noticed that you sound canadian like our friend d!

Bee Repartee said...

DUDE. That just blows about the show. Will you get your moolah back from the tickets?

I love the title nod to George....last call.....for alcohol...

cathouse teri said...

Hmmm... so who was the comedian? We gotta know!

And why are you so shocked when men ask you out? ????????

I mean you're a hot momma!

Groovy Mom said...

I have been known to text someone I am sitting right next to,...on occasion. It usually happens when I want to talk about someone else at the table, like say if they are wearing an ugly hat or something.

cathouse teri said...

Ugly hat. Ha ha.

I text people who are downstairs, because I don't wanna get up to ask them something.

Flip Flop Momma said...

so sorry for my absence, its been one hell of a week...

Only one more day and I get a break..

I will write a post tommorw or over the weekend and visit all u..

Sorry, please dont leave me in my time of need..

Janell said...

From what I can tell, it's time to wish you a happy birthday. Hope you had a good week at school.

Foster Communications said...

Yup, I'd say the fuckers do pretty much owe you...

Neurotic1 said...

I believe they were right. You do have an accent. But I still woulda drop kicked in the forehead for saying so!

When you get your pretty license can you come make me pretty?

Humincat said...

So, guess what? Def Leppard was about 10 minutes from my house Sunday. They played at the local casino. I was gonna head on over, just to see what all your fuss is about, but there was too much traffic, and I had family over. Maybe next time....
