I am fortunate enough to be acquainted with some crazy people, you know the type, always calling attention to themselves, even when it’s unintentional. I live with a couple of those on the road, both Big and Josh could be described that way. I am the quiet one of the bunch, not to say I don’t have a good time, but I can’t manage to play quite like they do. When I left for California, I said, in my outside voice, “Ok, you have three days, a birthday, and a $1,000 spending limit – you need to behave.” But that was the only stipulation I put on them. They tend to tone down some when I’m around, I never know what kind of calls to expect when I’m gone.
By the end of the first 24 hours they had been cut off by the bartender, prayed for by a stranger and one of them had almost puked and not because of alcohol. They are just those kind of guys.
I have girls that I like to be around that are similar, today I got an invitation to join a Color Run in Colorado Springs. Now, I don’t know if they were just being nice in inviting me, but I am thrilled that they did. These girls are the kind that have a party wherever they go, and to get to be a part of the party makes me feel all kinds of special.
The hardest part about this group, so far, was deciding on a team name that wouldn’t offend anyone. I am not always successful, but I really work hard at trying not to offend, it’s not always easy, but I try. So here are some of the fabulous names that were suggested: Team Birthday Bitches; Team Aren’t We Fabulous, Team Me and My Colored Bitches, Team Color Commentary. I had to draw the line at Me and My Colored Bitches, I just couldn’t imagine what anyone not at the Color Run would think of that – fortunately, there are some awesome girls in the group who kept working on ideas – we are Team Too Too Fabulous – oh, and that’s because they think we need to wear tutus on this adventure, my ass should never be showcased in a tutu – but I’m in anyway. I am so looking forward to this, it isn’t until September, but how much fun will this weekend be! Thanks for the invite!

Miss Shelly, we genuinely enjoy being around you!! We like to do fun things with fun people and well, that includes you! I truly enjoyed the time we spent together at KOH, and Mel and I are thrilled to death that you are in for the Color Run!! Team Too Too Fabulous has turned out to be more than we hoped for. PLUS the added bonus of a birthday party Saturday before the run…it’ll be a weekend that I hope you remember fondly, in this countdown to 50. Thanks for being part of our fun!! I’m really looking forward to it. (And for what it’s worth…the tutu’s…NOT my idea! HAHAAHA!!)
