Madonna State Of Mind At The Virtual Girls Night Out

Ann Again... and again Virtual Girls Night Out

You've reached the Friday night blog party where all you need to make this party complete is a beverage of your choice (cocktail recipe below for inspiration) and your fuzzy slippers!  

Going through channels recently I came upon the movie Desperately Seeking Susan.  I don't even remember how many times I went to the theater to see this.  I was slightly obsessed.  It wasn't so much that I wanted the "Madonna look" that was so popular, it was her casual, tough attitude I loved.  New York looked so cool!  I wanted to be there (and I wanted Aidan Quinn to show me around on that little scooter ;-> ).  4 years later I went to NYC and looked for that crazy Magic Club but I couldn't find it.  I did find Bleecker Street Cinema though.  (I read it closed in 1991. Sad.)  Let's have a trip down memory lane for this weeks Virtual GNO!

Time For Some Tunes!

Madonna "Into The Groove"

Love it!

Time For A Cocktail!

Tequila Sunrise

Ingredients:4 oz orange juice
2 oz tequila
1/2 oz grenadine
orange slice for garnish
maraschino cherry for garnish
Preparation:Pour the tequila and the orange juice into a highball glass with ice cubes.  Stir.  Slowly pour the grenadine around the inside edge of the glass, it will sink and slowly rise to mix with the other ingredients naturally.  Garnish with the orange slice and cherry.rup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. 

This was the first drink I ordered when I was 21.  Yes, because Madonna ordered it in Desperately Seeking Susan.  Like I said, I was slightly obsessed!  Cheers!

Time For A Question!

Did you have a movie that you were slightly obsessed with?  What was it?  How did you show your enthusiasm?

Thanks for hanging out at the Virtual Girls Night Out!  See you next Friday!  (Leave a comment, with your blog link, so we know you stopped by.  We'll visit your blog and say "Happy VGNO!")

  1. I was away last weekend on a road trip, and while we were driving the hubbie and I were talking about Desperately Seeking Susan. We were talking about how the ad would have to be either on kijiji or a dating site now vs in a newspaper.
    Obsessed movie? Mama Mia, and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.

    1. So happy you're here Mary! :->

      How bizarre that you were talking about D.S.S. last weekend. I don't know what kijiji is, I'll have to look that up.

      You're a Mama Mia girl, huh? Great!

  2. woo hoo, it's VGNO! I heart the early Madonna!
    Feeling a bit better, but for sure I don't think our drama is over!
    I just need to smile and be happy for a few!

    Visit Mom on Caffeine to find a fun drink idea for the summer!!!

    1. The drama is still around? Well, crap.

      I hope that tonight brought a bit of happiness dear Martha. You deserve it - Big Time!!!
