Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Happy New Year: belated

Army of Dad and I spent New Year's Eve with some friends who own a club. They got a package deal for hotel, limo and champagne, etc. and we had a ball. I had my first limo ride. Less than spectacular when we're all piled into the back of a limo clown-car style. But, still nice not to have to worry about drinking and driving.

Got myself a hoochie momma red dress in which I couldn't wear a bra. I haven't gone bra-less since before I had children. It was sort of empowering, I have to say. Hot Rod was at the store when I came out of the dressing room with my bra showing and he said "mom, there is something wrong with your dress." He was looking very concerned. I explained to him that mom would make sure her underclothes weren't showing when I went out. He was reassured. Didn't tell him I wouldnt' wear a bra at all. :) Then, I got to wear some "catch me, fuck me" shoes as LabKat calls them. That was cool, too. I don't usually do that either. All in all, a very nice evening. Except when my champagne flute was filled with falling confetti at midnight and I couldn't drink it.

    My, my, my. Can my wife borrow your dress?

    (Good that it's the color of merlot, because she'd have to drink most of the bottle before I could talk her into wearing it...)

    By chance that wouldn't be a strip club would it?
    Oh, by the way, that was a great caption.

    Sounds like fun. We ended up blowing off all our friends and cozying up with a fire and movie. It was great actually.

    The party scene can be fun too though. We did the big scene a couple of years ago at Navy Pier and saw - among others - the Violent Femmes. Good times.

    Awwwww, you guys look awesome! Glad you had a happy new year and I hope 2006 has wonderful things in store for y'all! :)

    Anon - I think that is a compliment and no, I'm keeping it for me! :) I think I showed my honey by wearing it, but I really liked it.

    No strip club, Bullseye. Sorry to disappoint you. :) And, I liked the caption, too. :)

    Fringe - I like quiet evenings at home, too. We have celebrated like that more than like this!

    Jenni - thanks, back at ya!

    Just looking at those unincumbered breasteses ...

    I can't help but think of the old Bugs Bunny cartoon where he we pretending to be a French chef in New Orleans, and he's teaching that you must "kaneeed the dough"

    It's psychological, I think.

    Pay it no mind.

    And it's nothing sexual.


    Believe me.

    Breasts mean nothing to me.

    Note to self: Don't comment after coming in from the bar.

    Uh huh....."couldn't wear a bra", indeed. Fortunately, I am immune to your powers, temptress! :)

    Yeah, well... I've actually SEEN them.

    Yeah, NDT, I've become aware that they don't hold much power over some guys. Others, well, look at Gadfly. :)

    I looked at that comment the next day and realized that I'd actually made MYSELF a little bit uncomfortable.

    Kat: I saw 'em the day Hotrod was born when she was on heavy drugs and breast feeding with all of us and a brass band in the room ;)

    And I'm a big proponent of breast feeding a newborn with pain medication in your system. That whole "being born" thing is bound to be a bit of a shock for the first bit. The kid can use some trace quantities himself.

    I'm the guy who said "my, my. . ." Yes, it absolutely was intended as a compliment.

    I'd have been less cryptic and more direct -- but I think AoD is WAY bigger than me.

    As long as you aren't too graphic you will be ok.

    Oh, no; I have a feeling I've said plenty enough already, sir. You have a good day.

    *evil grin*

    I love it when boys fight over me. :)

    Lab Kat: You have, eh?
    I like the parties that y'all throw! ;-)

    I'll be interested in the next Boobie-Thon, AoM!
    (I may participate, too, this time
    esp. because one of my mom's dear friends is a recent survivor, so it's been on my mind.)

    And you guys look adorable and so happy in that photo!!! Happy New Year, girlie!
