Heh...what I got for Christmas....

Get this, you guys...

Tonight at a friend's birthday party (where we drove around in a limo for 4-5 hours, quaffing champange and looking at Christmas lights -- I could get used to that in a BIG way), this friend handed out little Christmas presents to us as well. She knows I like cosmetics, so I got a set of chocolate "makeup" (lipstick, mirror, nailpolish, etc.), but here's the *weird* part. She knows little or nothing about my U2 on-line life, and certainly doesn't know what nickname(s) I use, etc.

So what else did she get me?

A set of little colored DISCO BALLS!!!!! LOL!!!!

when I opened it, I let out this WHOOP! and started laughing so hard, wishing Pleba could have been there to see, it was so perfect! They go from the regular silver disco ball to blue, purple, red, orange, yellow and green...oooh....ahhh....

So of course, I then had to tell her the story of my "secret identity", so the cat's outta the bag!

While in the limo, at one point we made a 'pit stop', and I noticed the quickie mart we stopped at had a big sign in the window: TAMALES: 5 FOR $3.00 !!!! I was about *this close* to taking a picture of it, but would have had a heckuva time essplaining that one to my friends:

DISCO: OMG!! TAMALES!!!! I HAVE TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THAT!!!

FRIENDS: ?????

DISCO: Oh. Um...there's this girl Mona on Pleba who--

FRIEND: Pleba? What's a Pleba?

DISCO: It's the U2 forum I'm on and--

FRIEND: FORUM? You mean, *snicker* like in Playboy?

DISCO: No no, it's-- *smolder*

FRIEND: Is it a chat room? I heard those can get pretty raunchy...

FRIEND: Yeah, I hear sick men cruise for young girls in those--

DISCO: No, NO! It's not a chat room...um, well, not exactly, it's more like--

FRIENDS: what do tamales have to do with this chat room??

DISCO: Well, there's this girl Mona and--

FRIEND: Does she have a nickname too,like Disco?

DISCO: Um, no, she's just Mona, but she IS MacPhisto's loo cleaner, and she's really--

FRIEND: MacPhisto? What's that? Is that a company? Is she their cleaning lady?

FRIEND: Oh I love tamales, they're soooo good!

FRIEND: Me too, there's this place in Richarsdon that makes the BEST ones--

DISCO: No no, wait, WAIT! *FUME* See, Mona made this joke once about U2 being wrapped in foil--

FRIEND: What? U2 in foil? What kind of chat room is this??

DISCO: No, you're not listening...it's NOT a chat room....see, U2 was wrapped in foil like TAMALES, and Mona--

FRIEND: What songs does U2 sing again? And that guy Bone-oh, isn't he like, gay or something? I saw him on Jay Leno and he looks really old, and....

DISCO: Sigh....nevermind.... *feeling rather Charlie Brown-ish*

Hmmm...I think I'll hang those BALLS above my PC monitor, hee hee...

*+* Disco *+*

Two coincidences in one night! It sounds like you a had a fun time!

I hate it when I come across something that reminds me of PLEBA but there's no one around who would understand. That's what I get for leading a double life.

That's funny!
I had a similar incident happen to me...I went to a Christmas party on Friday and my friend Jeff actually got me a Be-Dazzler!!! I just about died. How it happened was one day a few weeks ago we were in Michael's, the craft store, and they had 'em there and I'm all "OMG!! Look!! A Be-Dazzler!" and Jeff is like "Uh, yeah..." and I'm like "If I had one of these I could be sparkly like the Edge!" and we laughed and went on our way.

So...I will soon be sparkly like the Edge. Who else has one!?

LMAO Disco! That is just too perfect...

My sister's all into the 70's and kitsch, so her room has the lava lamp, the beaded curtains, etc., and she just got a disco ball put up in her room! (lol) So whenever I go in there & see it, I think of you & of PLEBA

Discotheque! Boom-Cha!

Hey this just reminded me of something:

You know you're an obsessed U2 fan when the pronunciation of Bono's name is automatically the most important part of any sentence it inhabits.

MY DAD: BOW-no is so gay.

ME: It is pronounced "BAH-no!"

*Five minutes later*

ME: Oh yeah, and he's NOT gay!

*Five minutes later, under breath*

ME: Except on fanfiction.net....

OMG!!! Dicso!! that's the funniest thing ever! however, as i take pictures of odd things all the time, i don't really have that problem.

*snicker* it DOES, however remind me of one i took a while ago. even mona doesn't know about this one. i was at work in the breakroom, and saw one of those yellow triangle "wet floor" signs and it had "Attention!" written in 3 different languages around it. WELL........

lol! i'll post the pic when i finally get it developed!

*sigh* sadly, that is only ONE of the many many random pictures i've taken like that.

MOM/FRIEND(these are interchangable depending on the situation): why are you taking a picture of THAT?

ME: well, it's... you see, i have this joke with my friends.... i.... nevermind.

another example, mona cleaning the loo on retreat.

I thought this was funny...it is about the bedazzler, I found it online...(I really need to be working!)

The Bedazzler let the funk out!

So you wanted to be a disco diva, but you were to young to get out on that dance floor and strut your stuff? Pout no more…you could be the disco queen of the playground with your star-studded, Bedazzled threads. Just don’t blind your fellow playmates with the reflective glare of your denim flares.

The Bedazzler was an outrageous craft machine that allowed you to spangle all your own wear with metallic studs and glittery rhinestones. The oversized stapler featured an arm lever that was pushed down into a hollowed-out plate, in which a metal-pronged stud waited to pierce through fabric. Much in the same way a stapler works with pieces of paper, the Bedazzler waited for a jeans pocket or a t-shirt to be slipped under the arm. The pressure of the lever punched the studs or rhinestones through the cloth, folding the prongs over to hold the studs fast.

The Bedazzler promised sparkly, spangly denim jeans, jackets, vests, skirts, and even purses. Anything that you could fit under the Bedazzler lever was fair game for the disco ball effect of studding. So go ahead and be your own rock star—with the bedazzler, it was a snap.

Next nap time, Julie -- if there are no toes to be colored, let's bedazzle things.

It's like that story we read in Spanish. They thought they were gonna lose their memory so they started labeling everything, even the cows! Man I love weird stuff like that.

MI BEDAZZLER SU BEDAZZLER. I wonder if Sarverino ever had one.

OOOOOOOO We can bedazzle my camo hat.! and My Soulmate!

Well...back when Disco was king (er, QUEEN?) the first time around (shudder), I WAS the disco dancing queen...I swear I was out nearly every night, much to the death of me the next morning when I had to go to work!! (I spent many a lunch hour crashing in my little Pinto trying to catch some Z's...)

Good times.
