Here is a tip I learned from Thingorjus. Cut off the little golden F on your suede loafers and velcro it to a new pair of pumps! Thin used to use crazyglue, but velcro works better. That way you have loafers by day and pumps by night. N'est Pas?

Did I say catsup - oh my, I meant calvados. It was those years living in the deep south...

In case you don't recognize me, I will be the one in between the two showgirls from Maxims wearing a large carnation.

Who was that tall thin blonde with Mr. Haines? Was that pup in her arms?
Lastly, where is he partying tonight?

Hi all,

I'll be there, if only to see dutch and his two showgirls wearing only a carnation.

The missus is allergic to peaches. Does Harry's have anything else to drink?

I bring my hairdresser with me wherever I go.
Pup is a boy but loves his Tiara anyway, he knows what looks good!
I will wear my Blahhhniks and traipse around with a martini if that is alright , peaches make me itch

For Cigalechanta: Dom Perignon, indeed! For a party of this size and at this late hour, if I'm buying, they can all slurp Veuve Cliquot and bloody well like it.

You however, being a woman of exceptional class with a more educated palate, are invited to join me in demolishing a bottle or three of Moet et Chandon from my private cellar. What food do you suggest as an accompaniment? (yes, yes, I know...one usually refers to the wine as being an accompiniment to the food, but on this of all nights, let's get our priorities straight!)

And to the poor fashion victim wearing the Blahniks: sorry to be the one to tell you, cherie, but in our circle, Manolo's little creations became totally declasse the moment Oprah Winfrey starting wearing them a few years ago. Credit where it's due, though...if the big O can wear them day in and day out, it certainly
says something for their structural integrity.

And now, ma cher Cigale, back to the menu...

Since Harry's isn't really noted for the quality of their food...just the prices.. we might start with their speciality


Beef Carpaccio and then .............

Stretch...yawn...groan. "Honey, will you get me a shot of...oh never mind, make it an expresso...strong...my head is pounding! I need railroad ties to hold my eyelids up! Man, my feet are killing me. What a great party! Who dropped their pareo on the floor? I coulda killed myself tripping over it! Those carnation girls were a hoot! Oh no, catsup's ruined my Ferragamos... I can't believe the way Ciggie was flirting last night with those bartenders! Pup ate the last of the Vienna sausages, damn!

Oh well, I suppose they're going to want me to write a trip report on this one...

Calamari, thanks for inviting me to the party, but it looks as if I arrived after the festivities were over. Just as well, since the airlines lost my luggage and I don't have a thing to wear.

robdaddy, I'm not sure if you are understudying for degas or thingorgeous, but you are certainly destined for stardom. Ben Haines appearance absolutely cracked me up.

Damn, somebody owes me a raincheck, or at least a drink. I'll take whatever they're pouring.
