The Weekend

Laurie and Darlene working the door


Friday night I went with Darlene to a local bar to watch her husband's band play. As it turns out, in a lot of smaller clubs which do not usually charge a cover charge, the band is responsible for providing people to work the door. You guessed it. I helped Darlene work the door at one of Beaumont's less glamorous clubs. I have a new respect for anyone who has to put those stupid little paper bands on people's wrists and, just because Darlene had to ask me how much change to give for a $5 cover charge from a $50 bill doesn't mean she's...um...challenged.


Saturday night we (me, Jack, Bonnie, Terry and Dan) went to Crockett Street for their annual Halloween bash. Perhaps it's because we've gone to this particular function every year for the past few years, but the costumes didn't seem very creative. I thought the best costumes of the night were my sister Bonnie who went as Steve from Ghost Hunters and my brother-in-law Dan who went as Charlie Sheen complete with blow-up doll. Bonnie was disappointed that nobody seemed to recognize who she was supposed to be but her costume was great.

Bonnie as Steve of Ghost Hunters

(Note the fake tattoos on her arms. Cool. Those aren't her sideburns and eyebrows either.)


Dan as Charlie Sheen and his "friend", Terry as Trixie Treat

and Bonnie as Steve of Ghost Hunters


Me as, I don't know, Ann Margaret, perhaps and

Jack as one of those Start Trek engineers who always get killed first on any mission

Laurie, I like you as a red-head, I think. Hahaha. What a cute picture of you and our Jack! :)

where did jack get the rick rack?

Laurie said...

Jen - Thanks! Your shower, also from this very full weekend, gets it's own post tomorrow. :)

Lorna - He'll kill me for telling you this but he had the uniform custom made. The "rick rack" indicates rank and stuff like that. Perhaps he'll leave us a comment about what it all means.

I love the pics! Bonnie's costume is great! You make a good red-head, too.

Laurie said...

Just... - Thanks! It was supposed to be a pre-costume but I just never put on the rest of it.

Leslie - Thanks!! :)

Adela said...

Great pics! I love your hair, but it clashes with Jack's shirt.

Laurie said...

Adela - Nah, we were precious.

Grimm said...

Girl, you should have been Brian from Ghost Hunters and go around calling everyone Dude.

Dude, did you see that?
Dude, did you hear that?
Dude, there is something over there.

Good grief.

Laurie said...

Grimm - Yes! I should have thought of that.
