Virtual GNO - Laid Back and Independent


Easy does it. That's what we're doing so far this summer. The Pacific Northwest heatwave is hitting us now and the days seem to be a series of; open windows - water the garden - grab a popsicle. As the day gets hotter; pull the shades - close the windows - turn on the fans- grab a popsicle. Such a healthy diet!

Let's have a little laid back/Independence Weekend Virtual Girls Night Out!

First virtual party? Welcome! The original Virtual GNO is a blog-hopping party that began in the summer of 2008. I couldn't get a sitter and was in desperate need for time away from my children and some adult conversation. I decided to do the next best thing and turned to my blog friends. At least I can "get out" in my imagination.

Get Your BLOG Over Here!

To join the blog-hopping fun, check out my VGNO post then sign the Mr. Linky guest book with your name/blog link. Visit fellow bloggers that have signed in. It's a party so at a party you mingle, right? Go blog-hopping! I want everyone to connect. That's what it's all about.

Time For Some Tunes!

Now this is a song that you need to listen to in your convertible while driving down a gorgeous tree lined road, or ocean-sidled highway. Turn it up!

The Freddy Jones Band "In A Daydream"


Time For A Cocktail!

Daydream Cocktail
Ingredients:
1/2 oz Vodka
1/4 oz Triple Sec
3/4 oz Lemon Schnapps
1/4 oz Orange Juice
1 oz Grenadine
1/2 oz Half and Half

Directions:
In cocktail mixer filled with ice, combine all ingredients. Shake or stir & strain into rocks glass or large shot glass.

Dang! Just how large is that shot glass?!? I'll stick with a regular glass. I'm not so sure about the Half and Half. In this heat it might look a little funky.

OK VGNO friends, I have something I just HAVE to share with you. I don't know if I'm the last person to be aware of this product however, check out The Kush.



Um... alright. I understand how some women may feel more comfortable using this product but... um... honestly it looks like a dildo. There, I've said it. And the idea of sleeping with a dildo in between my boobs just does not appeal to me. And did you see the price?!? $50! Oh wait, they've been generous and lowered the price to $38.95. How sweet.

Time For A Question

Since this is a holiday weekend I would like to know how you are going to celebrate Independence Day?

A neighbor hosts the Bar-B-Que and fireworks so we'll be heading across the street for the festivities. Oregon has strict firework laws but Portland is right next to Vancouver, WA and their fireworks laws are more laid back. So every year you get the daredevils going "across the border" to buy illegal fireworks. Neighborhoods get pretty crazy around 9:30pm. Oh, those rebels!

So, what are your 4th of July plans?


No Giveaway this week. But, I'll try to wrestle up something good for next week. (Someone has a birthday on the 11th... who could it be? ;-> )

Alright now, go have fun! Sign in with Mr. Linky to join the Virtual GNO. Visit those that sign-in. It's a party so go mingle. Go blog-hopping! That's what it's all about. Share this party with your blog friends, post A LINK to the Virtual GNO on your blog and have them join us. Send our party into the Twitter world. (#VGNO) Leave your Twitter ID in the comments section. The more the merrier! I want everyone to connect. That's what it's all about.

And Be Safe This Weekend!!!

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
