Shake your Groove Thang!

Well, this pass weekend I had the time of my life. What fun it was attending The class of nineteen cough, seven, omg, nine. It is very hard to believe it has been thirty years since I have seen these people. I am so glad I went. I wouldn't have gone had I not hooked up with the McBreakfast club girls before hand. It would have been too easy not to make the effort. I am so proud of myself for going. I know ya'll will find this hard to believe but I am extremely shy. It is very easy sitting here and being all that with the cloath of computer I wear! So, me going out is major, me going out to a thirty year school reunion..unbelievable...(and considering when I was in school I barely attended) my mother was even excited for me...how sad is that! LOL But, had a ball both nights dancing and laughing playing catchup. I had one drink each night then went to just water..but I wasn't the only one everybody was water drinking...too funny or too old!
we of course started our weekend off at McBreakfast club-aka coffee club mickey d's

Darlene, honey, they all got that same smooth Southern voice that you've got? I'm thinkin' I need me a fix of that again soon....:)) It must be all the Comfort, non? :))
x

♥ Braja said...

Oh and dear girl, I'm laughing at your Braja-isum in the sidebar :)) You sweet thing. I know I know, it's been there a while, but I keep forgetting to thank you.

It's a good saying that one; and right now? I see some of it comin' true....and believe me, it ain't all good.

darsden said...

WoooHooo l@@ky l@@ky who be first and second! My most favorite blogger and best friend. YOU Rock girlfriend :-)) Yes, we all have about the same voice..laughing..but I am so much smoother and sweeter..>LOL

darsden said...

Braja- I will be picking up a international calling card. I enjoyed talking to you so much and the time flew by, I didn't want to hang up. I loved being able to hear and talk to you in person, it was wonderful and has been way too long since then. I will get one and call you when you get back from Thailand!

darsden said...

Braja-I can't wait for you to come to the States, I might not let you leave so you better bring Jahnu, and the cow babies..I have room for all of them :-))

♥ Braja said...

Hey send me an email with your number....I will call from Thailand, I'll be on WiFi there, and I have tricks....xx

darsden said...

Braja-both numbers have been sent to you. I love a woman who can do tricks..LOL

blognut said...

Dammit! There's a friggin' love fest goin' on over here and not a one of ya' is lovin' on me!

I know where I'm not welcome!

blognut said...

Yeah, I'm just kidding.

blognut said...

But you should really know by now that I need things to be just a little bit more 'about me' or I get all whiney.

blognut said...

Kinda like Michel, huh?

darsden said...

blognut-honey the reason you are blue is because I have squeeze all the air out you by hugging and loving on you...I had to let go so you would still be around...come to town I will hug ya to death again :-)

blognut said...

And by the way, Dar, I know this is your blog and it's supposed to be all about you. I almost forgot!

I'm very glad you went to your reunion and had a great time. It's good for the soul to get out and do a little dancing!

XO, my lovely southern belle!

darsden said...

blognut-LOL kinda like Michel, rotflmao... YOU took the day off..good for you.. I know you need a lil more attention or you get cranky!

♥ Braja said...

Blognut, we love you.

Now quit bitchin'.

Pass the decaf.

Oh yeah :)

darsden said...

Good Googly Moogly when did blogland turn into Whine fest... Man, don't we get enough from Michel, just don't go bitchy on me blognut everything will be fine...

darsden said...

16 comments and only 3 names up there LOL

darsden said...

we might hit the 50 today...never been that high

Medora said...

Looks like everyone is having a great time! What fun.

Maggie said...

Seems like you had a blast!! That's awesome. =)

darsden said...

Medora-We all did it was a great time. So, ready to do it again. The weekend just went by too fast, both nights.

Maggie-Yes, YES I did and ready for another one. It was tons of fun visiting with people I haven't seen in 30 years. Can't believe how fast the time went.

Pastor Sharon said...

WOW, I missed this love fest by a couple of hours. Looks like you all had a wonderful time. . .
Dar, I'm glad you enjoyed that reunion! You guys looked like you were having the time of your lives!
YOU GO GURL!!!!!!!

Pearl said...

Dar, you goofy silly woman! :-) Looks like a great party. You graduated 79? I was 80. :-)
Were those good times or what?!
Pearl

otin said...

Darsden is older than me? I would have never guessed! I went to my 10 year reunion, I graduated in 84, and my 25 is coming up, I probably won't be able to go :( Looks like you had fun!!!!

darsden said...

Pastor Sharon-the love fest for you goes on around the clock. Had a blast :-)

Pearl-Yes, good ole days and music, we had a band that played our time music it was great. I knew you were close but not that close... :-)

otin-I know don't I L@@K Good! LOL You ought to go I had a blast :-)

Hit 40 said...

Very brave!! I also do not like going out to something like a reunion. Nice to have a pack of friends to go with.

The pictures are outstanding. You were rocking!!!

Gaston Studio said...

Great reunion pics, great love fest while it lasted, great whiney comebacks from blognut, and who says the comment section has to be about the blogger... I say it should be about the post or whateve else the commenters want to make of it. Who's with me!!!

Quint said...

Arrrgh! Thanks for stoppin" by, Matey! I see lots of babes at this get together!

blognut said...

You Darlin'! I just popped over here to see if your groove thang was still shakin' from the weekend.

blognut said...

Is it?

blognut said...

By the way, Blognuts are never bitchy.

We're just not.

blognut said...

Sometimes we're cranky.

But never actually bitchy.

Because that would imply that we were cranky for no reason.

blognut said...

And Blognuts are only cranky if you give them a good reason to be cranky.

blognut said...

I don't recommend that.

blognut said...

Because, as you know, we are a bit over-caffeinated.

blognut said...

Not that we'll ever give up the caffeine.

Not gonna happen!

darsden said...

blognut-you back honey...okay com'mere I will give you another big {hug}

I know I didnt' call you bitchy I said you would get cranky if I didn't give you some love fest of your own and that is why you are blue.. I have squeezed all the air out of you again!

blognut said...

Wait - I'll be back in a minute.

All that coffee and Diet Pepsi makes me have to pee.

Back in a flash!

darsden said...

blognut=however I would suggest maybe not drinking the caffeine late at night it could cause you to be a lil blurry..oh wait...you already are..never mind

blognut said...

Okay. All better.

Have I crossed the line of decency by talking about pee on your blog?

blognut said...

Also - you can totally hug me now without fear of me getting your shoes wet.

blognut said...

Wait! You don't wear shoes in the deep south, do ya'?

darsden said...

Blognut YEP you have officially taking my lil ole blog from G to PG rating now.. LOL I was a lil afraid to hug ya ...knowing you had to go!

blognut said...

Where's Braja? Is she drunk?

darsden said...

OMG those are fighting words...LOL I always have shoes on woman..I am not your average bare foot and pregnant redneck here...!

I NEVER go barefooted NEVER I have very tender feet :-)

darsden said...

Blognut you missed her she was over beating up the ponderosa II post...had about 20 from her..LOL Ya'll just on a different page honey!

blognut said...

I'm glad to know that you're keeping your shoes on over there!

So, Braja is not only drunk, she is also lost?

blognut said...

By the way, Dar, I'm barefoot right now and I'm not even from the south!

I guess it's just a preference!

blognut said...

Of course, since I'm not wearing shoes, it would also make perfect sense for me to not be wearing a bra either.

blognut said...

But I'd never admit that because I'm a 'proper' sort.

Pastor Sharon said...

Hey, I'm back. . . . How old did you say you are?

darsden said...

blognut-don't you take my blog to R rating I will have to have people start signing in then.

I wear shoes in my house at all times..except in the shower or bath... I wear crocs around here! Tender tootsies

Pastor Sharon said...

Rated R? Is there some sort of ratings?

darsden said...

Pastor Sharon-old enough to know better.. what did I do wrong.. I am sorry ... LOL

darsden said...

Pastor Sharon-blognut has been having personal issues she has been sharing with me tonight.. I am just trying to keep er clean.. never know when a Pastor or Guru will be popping by.

Pastor Sharon said...

I didn't see anything with that rating. . . however, now I'm going to have to go check mine! Holy Moly!

blognut said...

Pastor Sharon, it's indelicate to ask her age! Just assume she's like thirty-eleven.

blognut said...

So basically, Dar, you're saying that I should refrain from talking about peeing, or going without a bra. I'm good with that.

Can we talk about my thong? 'Cause that's kinda going places right now.

Pastor Sharon said...

Oh, yeah you have a point there. . . not a nice thing to ask a lady. . . HEY WAIT! That's my age!

Pastor Sharon said...

Darlene????? Where are you???????

darsden said...

Yep it's official I have cracked a rib tonight, Ladies ya'll are killing me...

Blognut that is hilarious and sooo true
Yes lets talk about the dental floss for your butt ... how the hell do you deal with that!

Pastor Sharon...LOL

blognut said...

She probably had to pee. She's getting up there, ya' know?

:)

Pastor Sharon said...

Blognut. . . speaking of shakin a groove thang. . . last time I danced. . . I shook my groove thang out of joint. . . :)))
thought I broke my hip!

blognut said...

You get used to the dental floss for your butt.

My theory is this:

Your underwear is going to go up your butt no matter what, right? So why not start with a thong that is 1/2 an inch wide, instead of those granny panties that are 8 inches wide, 'cause that's a whole lot of cotton to pack a crack with. Just my opinion.

Pastor Sharon said...

blognut, you have a point. However, I do hate the feeling of that floss when I'm walking. . . It's just not normal. . .

blognut said...

You get used to it. It's like American coffee. It's awful at first, and then it's all you have!

It becomes necessary!

darsden said...

Pastor Sharon-I am right here where are you am in trouble again...

Nope didn't have to go to the rest room see how polite I said that.. I havent' left but Braja is working the ponderosa II site so I am jumping through hoops for ya'll that is where I am jumping through hoops

Pastor Sharon said...

Oh I see. . . didn't give it enough time. took me 10 years to like coffee....:))))

darsden said...

Blognut-I don't have that problem with my grannies they stay where they are suppose to..course it's a wide load down there might make a difference!

blognut said...

I don't think it's going to take 10 years to like thongs. You have my permission to quit if you don't like them better after 10 days.

darsden said...

american coffee where the hell you from blognut I didn't know you weren't american ..do you have a visa to be here on my blog

Pastor Sharon said...

Darlene,
Where are you and Braja? I am at the wrong spot!

blognut said...

Yeah, Dar. But it takes 2 people to fold granny panties, doesn't it? Kind of a 'Grab one end of these and walk toward me,' deal.

blognut said...

No, I'm not a foreigner. Born and bred in these here Chicago parts.

I'm just saying American coffee tastes bad because Braja said so... I know no other way!

Pastor Sharon said...

And you know, that's worse than folding bedsheets!

darsden said...

dang I can hear ya'll talking about me!

darsden said...

Braja was at the ponderosa...she is now MIA

blognut said...

I don't fold bedsheets, Pastor Sharon, but I do know what you mean.

I just put my bedsheets back on the bed to avoid having to figure out how to fold that fitted sheet. I can't do a thing with those!

Pastor Sharon said...

You have a point there!

♥ Braja said...

OK so the last post is beyond the 50....shall we just take this up to 100?

darsden said...

she should be here shortly

blognut said...

Hey Dar! You need some help folding your underwear?

darsden said...

Blognut-have you gotten a set that has the fitted all the way around...man you haven't tried to fold till you tried one of those puppies! I make the coolest ball out of them!

♥ Braja said...

I was over at the Ponderosa....

Funny, never thought I'd say THAT.

darsden said...

uhmmm nope I got it covered.. they also make pretty cool grill covers..

blognut said...

Braja, tonight is full of new experiences!

darsden said...

LOL wait till you tell them in your post you were really at the ponderosa ...one day

blognut said...

GRILL COVERS!

I think I just peed again!

darsden said...

Pastor Sharon -Braja is here now...

Pastor Sharon said...

Good grief there for a minute I thought it was going to be all about Darlene's granny panties for the next 40 comments!

Pastor Sharon said...

Braja, it would make for an interesting experience . . . and all, you at a Ponderosa. . . kindofa western cowboy experience.

Pastor Sharon said...

Darlene,
Does anybody named Hoss live there?

darsden said...

rotflmfao

darsden said...

yes please lets leave my panties out of this braja did you know blognut wore dental floss for her undies

Pastor Sharon said...

Blognut, Where in the heck did you come up with Grill covers. . . NEVER MIND don't even say it!
Now I have to pee.

blognut said...

Hey, if Braja comes to the Ponderosa, does she need to bring along her own yoga instructor?

I'm not picturing too many yoga instructors there.

darsden said...

Pastor Sharon it would be a yogi zen cowboy experience..I think we should set that up,

darsden said...

Jus this big ole hoss ya talking to Pastor

Pastor Sharon said...

And blognut also says it takes some getting used to just like drinking American Coffee. that took me 10 years! Imagine the Pastor walking all funny for 10 years . . . just for dental floss?~

Pastor Sharon said...

I think Braja could be the Yoga instructor. . . and Darlene, when can you set that up? I'll drive to Mississippi and learn that.

♥ Braja said...

Blognut, honey, I AM a yoga instructor. Now, assume the position....

blognut said...

Pastor Sharon, if you try the thong, will you PLEASE write a post about it?

darsden said...

blognut-no twisting allowed out here

blognut said...

Oh, Braja! I'm not assuming any positions over here! For Pete's sake, didn't you hear Dar tell you that I'm wearing a thong?!

Pastor Sharon said...

Now really. . .Blognut? Do you think I could tie a good Bible study into that? I'll have to think about a title

♥ Braja said...

Are there drinks here????

darsden said...

LOL somebody get there camera...I need to see blognut strike a pose

Pastor Sharon said...

I'm wishing for a Margaritta with salt. . . please. . .

Pastor Sharon said...

I only drink one beverage per setting otherwise I'm cheap intertainment and the folks down at the church think I've fallen off the wagon. . not good really. . .

♥ Braja said...

WOOOHOOOO!!!! 107!!!!

blognut said...

I can totally strike a pose! Don't put it past me!

I'm just saying that I probably wouldn't want to be wearing a thong when I did it! :)

darsden said...

Open mini bar help your self.. your not company get your own damn drink woman...your family

blognut said...

But if you're pouring drinks now, anything is possible!

♥ Braja said...

Sorry that was 110. And now this is 111.

darsden said...

I have never been sooo High...woooohooo for sure

Pastor Sharon said...

Braja. . . assuming anything with Blognut could get outta hand. . . after all we were just folding sheets and grill covers right before you got here ::)))))

blognut said...

Aw crap! Who let Darlene get high?

darsden said...

Pastor you can wish all you want..you still have to get up and get it yourself!

blognut said...

Pastor Sharon, I think Darlene needs a little counseling.

♥ Braja said...

Blognut, no nude/floss yoga.
And we're at 115.
Should we try to hit 200? Oooooo, that sounds so much better than any other LOWER number...hit 200. I think that works for me....

darsden said...

make it legal, make it legal..oh wrong post sorry...lol

Pastor Sharon said...

200 would be better. . . this is fun!

Pastor Sharon said...

I can't councel with her if I'm drinkin, wearin' dental floss and assuming positions. . .

♥ Braja said...

cos this is now 121

Grill covers???

darsden said...

blognut-lets review shall we, dental floss butt, peeing everywhere, no bra, no shoes..I need the counseling...I think NOT

♥ Braja said...

Who let Darlene get high, you ask? Was there any other option???

Pastor Sharon said...

Scuse. . . mmeee.....I had to go get my own drink on. . .

blognut said...

LOL DAR! You're right. I do need counseling!

darsden said...

OH my now I do have to go to the lil girls room.. again blognut notice my manners.. LOL

Pastor Sharon that was hilarious

♥ Braja said...

Darsden...you forgot grill covers

Pastor Sharon said...

Oh so now we are drinking and smoking. . .wait till this gets out!

♥ Braja said...

Such a fiiiine Southern gal :)
Don't forget your grill covers.
Wait...is that part of a toilet joke? I've lost track. And my mind. Pastor??

Pastor Sharon said...

Braja you'll have to ask Blognut about the grill cover. . .

blognut said...

She didn't forget grill covers. She's wearing 'em!

Pastor Sharon said...

Yes dear?

darsden said...

wow I just realize this is my first 4 way and it's not as uncomfortable as I thought those things would be.

blognut said...

Grill covers are granny panties! Are you up to speed now?

♥ Braja said...

Pastor Sharon, it ain't gonna get out.....it's repressed, like so much else on this blog :)))

blognut said...

Oh, Dar! Now you've gone and taken your blog to an X rating, haven't you?

♥ Braja said...

Oh crap.
Yeah I'm lost.
I thought the dental floss was th....ahhh forget it....
:)

Pastor Sharon said...

Okay so if I councel two of the four of us and Braja teaches us Yoga. . . should we wait until everyone is wearing depends (or a grill cover)?

♥ Braja said...

DAR!!!!!!!!! lol.....and with a PASTOR!!!

blognut said...

Pastor, that's probably for the best.

darsden said...

I wear grannie panties and sometimes I use them as grill covers..to purdy up the place

Pastor Sharon said...

Four way? I know you didn't. . . oh wait. . .yes you did! :)))
We should just get on the phone with this party and all meet somewhere for drinks. . .

♥ Braja said...

I think I'll do the counseling. Just sayin'....
:)))

blognut said...

So, what do you tell people when you have them over for a cookout and you have to pull those frilly, polka-dotted granny panties off the grill?

darsden said...

hey braja I am not picky...LoL

Pastor Sharon said...

Okay Braja, whatever works. . .

darsden said...

I say watch this and shoot them off like a sling shot...wanna come over for a bbq

blognut said...

OMG! I'm not eating anything off that grill!

♥ Braja said...

OK 150, lights out ladies.
Goodnight.
Though it's morning here.
And I still need a drink....

blognut said...

Also?

Thongs make WAY better sling shots.

darsden said...

I only use it for my veggies :-)

Pastor Sharon said...

I'm going to a drive thru before I get to the POnderosa. . .don't take it personal. . . but the polka dots are probably like an upgraded cover for the grill.

♥ Braja said...

And counseling.

blognut said...

I'm heading to bed, too! It's 11:05 and I have to get up to pee soon.

Pastor Sharon said...

Wait, Braja. . what about 200?

♥ Braja said...

And I hope you only USE veggies....no cow babies!!! NOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

darsden said...

yea you might be able to put an eye out with a thone but I can take someone out with mine

♥ Braja said...

OK, so I think we can all say we "blogged like no one was watching" tonight...

Gaston Studio-Jane honey it was a comment love fest I am sorry you missed it too.. That lil Braja lit my world up last night and brought Blognut and Pastor Sharon with her. It was great!

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Dar you and your friends look like you are having so much fun.

I've got several blog friends who had 30 year reunions this year.

You
Vodka Mom
Smart Mouthed Broad
I think there's another I'm forgetting...

Joanna Jenkins said...

Whoa! you and your friends look soooooo much younger than me! What's your secret :-) The reunion looked like a blast!
xo

darsden said...

PHST- We had a blast, I was sorry the weekend came and went so fast. I was surprised too how many of us 30yrs running around in blogland!

Joanna Jenkins-aren't you sweet, I am sure you look fabulous. No, secret honey, laugh and love life regardless, trust God to work it all out!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

So glad you had so much fun. It gives me hope. I'm another from the class of 1979. VodkaMom too. My reunion is the end of August. Can't wait. I think.

darsden said...

SMB-I had a blast, I went in with the attitude if they weren't nice I would go Carrie on their asses..LOL but, everybody was great. We really had a fun time. I know IF you go in August you too will have a wonderful time. :-))

Fragrant Liar said...

Good lord, where's the end of the comments??? I must be the last one. Do I win something for that?

I congratulate you for showing up at your reunion and having a ball. I grad'd in '73. I went to my 10th reunion, but don't know if I'd go back. Not really interested in it.

But I'm really glad you didn't go all Carrie on anybody.

darsden said...

Fragrant Liar-yes we had a hugh love fest comment section, I kinda got roasted by these 3 wonderful ladies.

I had a blast and so glad I did go and even more happy I didn't have to go Carrie on them!

Twisted Fencepost said...

Shy? Where? When? I don't see shy.
I'm curious as to what they spiked your water with? tee hee
I'm glad you had a good time!!!

darsden said...

Twisted Fencepost-oh cher I am very shy.. Yea that was some powerful water..LOL I do look a lil questionable in some pictures don't I. I just know it was friggin hot and I have no bizzNuss wearing a summer sweater with all this.. I was HOT
