I'm a Virtual Homely Coming Dance participant!

That durn Mindy of Primitiques 'n Poetry at just had to remind me of how homely I am by invitin' me to her stupid (read: "Quite clever. Wish I'd thought of it!) blog online dance. Let me give you some history about how this first annual virtual insanity came about.

At Warrenton twice a year there's this antique and junk fair. (I know, I know - you've never heard of it and especially not on this blog.) Anyway, on the last Thursday night of each sale the Junk Gypsy Company of College Station puts on a Junk-o-rama Prom. Participants dress up crazy and act crazier. A good time is had by all, at least that's what all the pictures I've seen of the Prom suggest.

So cute little Mindy decides us homely, junking bloggers should have our own pity prom online, since we can't be at Warrenton to dance at the real one. Mindy has even tempted us with prizes to show her our weird ways.
Mindy, please take note of my high-heeled, high-topped sneakers (you may borrow, girlfriend), the Christmas-tree-skirt skirt, and the cowhide I bought at Warrenton Tuesday. Send me your prettiest durn denim bracelet as my prize.

Thank you. Thank you very much. The Texas Woman has left the building.


  1. Very original, Cher! I expected nothing less!

  2. I want a close up of those shoes! Too cute! And the skirt? To die for! Love the holster/gun. Nice touch. You look mahvelous! Tell me more about the clunky necklace. I know IT Guy couldn't help but two-step with his cutie. You are just darling! Congrats on a successful virtual dance. Your bling will be on your doorstep soon. The prettiest, of course. ~Mindy

  3. Girlfriend! You'd BE the PROM QUEEN in that get-up. I am confused...did you or did you not go to the shows? And if so WHY DIDIN"T WE MEET??????? I'm putting you on our blog list...don't know why it didn't happen sooner.
    Carry on, blogqueen!

    p.s. Isn't DOUG a hoot? He has to come to every show from now on?

  4. Haaaa! I love it! You are so cute!


Your opinion doesn't count, but I'd like to know what it is anyway! Please leave a comment!
