Um Yeah

I hope everyone has had a good week. I’m still trying to get back in the swing of things here at the evil day job. It would help if I could sleep through the night without waking up at least twice. But we all have our crosses to bear. This weekend though….Oh this weekend isn’t as innocent as last weekend. There’s no trivia night in sight. Nope. Seems that A.M. Griffin is going to be in town which means we’re going to go buck. Wild. In New Orleans.

I’ve warned Lea Barrymire she might get a phone call at some point asking for her to hit up the Cabal funds to bail us out of jail. I’ve even warned my sister she might get a call but she told me I was on my own since I wouldn’t let her stalk Peyton Manning. Whatever. Anyway, we’re going to be tearing it up in the Quarter this weekend. Just not too much I hope. I am still recovering from surgery. If we hit a strip club I can only wave my dollar bill with my left hand. Darn it.

But we’re not at the weekend yet. And it’s a three-day weekend at that which means most people are going to be kicking back chillin’ or sleeping as much as possible (the way I want to) or barbecuing and stuff. And you need inspiration to get down to your groovin’ or grilling or even your sleepin’. Which is why we’re have Freaky on Fridays.

Yup, it’s another chance for me to play DJ (and if you have songs you want to feature, let me know and I’ll add them to my list) and share songs that will kick off your weekend. Sexy songs, party songs, anything that I feel is a good way to start off your Friday night fun. I’ll also be including once a month guest posts. I’m working on getting my guests lined up now and hope to start that in September. It’ll be fun!

So…I’ll admit I changed my mind about what song I was going to play because I just heard it in the car and this song took me back to a time when I was sitting in a theater watching Channing Tatum hump a stage. It was the first time I ever found myself jealous of an inanimate object. I’ll also admit I only went to see Magic Mike for Matthew McConaughey and Joe Manganiello. Until I saw Channing Tatum perform to this song. Is it superficial? Yes. But as Lea told me, at least I’m honest. Because holy snikey, but this song puts me in the mood. Like Pavlov’s dog, I associate it with uber sexiness.

Happy Friday y’all. Have a safe weekend and sit back, let this song work on your mind…and if you’ve seen Magic Mike…picture Channing Tatum dancing on you like a good bad boy. *sigh*

Lots of Writhing Bodies

For once I’m not cranky because it’s Monday. Why? Because I had an amazing weekend.

Saturday night I headed to the Big Easy for the burlesque show and it was unlike anything I’ve ever seen. I keep thinking back and all I can say is how happy I was to see that the women who performed weren’t surgically enhanced within an inch of their lives. They weren’t ‘perfect’, but they were beautiful all the same. Probably because they were so in tune with their sensuality and their bodies. It was actually kind of empowering.

It must have been the same for the other women in the audience. Another surprise was there were definitely more females in the audience than males. And they appreciated those swaying hips, tassels whirling in one direction and then the other, the jiggling butts, and all the glitter. I saw more boobs and butts than I’ve ever seen in one place, but it wasn’t uncomfortable because the dancers made it seem so natural.

I’ve been lucky enough to strike up an email friendship with one of the dancers, Ginger Valentine, who is also the Queen of Burlesque 2011 (I believe). She’s a very nice lady who has been helpful during my research and she put on one hell of a performance. I only got to speak with her for a few minutes after the show, but she made sure to ask that I email her if I had any more questions. Hello? I’m a writer! I have a million questions! I just can’t think of them all at once. So yes, I’ll be contacting this lovely lady again.

And as if that wasn’t enough, on Sunday I headed out with the “girls” to see Magic Mike. Oh. My. God. What can I say? If they would’ve just stuck to the dancing and gyrating and all, it would have been the perfect movie. Between Channing Tatum’s sexy-oh-my-god-look-what-he-can-do-with-his-hips dancing, Joe Manganiello’s scruffy, hot as hell body, and Matthew McConaughey’s dimples and Texas drawl, I was a moaning mess. Seriously. After the movie, my sister-in-law said “I kept hearing you moan, but that’s okay because I kept blushing!”

I’m not going to give any spoilers, but seriously, this movie is hot. Oooh, hot. Don’t go in expecting to be enthralled by anything other than bulging muscles and other…things.

I had a great weekend and I’m ready to write! All that inspiration, you know. 🙂 How about you?
