Got the outfit in one. A rhinestone shirt from Malena, short plaid skirt, skull and crossbone leggings ( hey, nine hours on a barstool??? YES leggings! ) and some skull shoes, with plaid bow and skull earrings .

( how very Irish of you Miss Fabulous! )

Well, my wardrobe does not run to the green hues. Like Malena, it leans twards the bruise pallet....

I did put the phinestone shamrock on my , uh, CHEST, so who is going to be looking at the rest of me?????

Happy St. Pats!:)

Thanks for the tip, rubius. Boy am I glad I switched brands recently.

Sounds like a perfectly lovely outfit Lorraine, even not being very green.
Heehee, when people ogle your shamrock you can just tell them what I usually say: "Hey, they don't talk!";)

Top of the morning to you Lorriane!
Did I read correctly NINE hours! I'm not certian I want to do something that feels good for nine hours! Your poor fingers indeed! Your outfit sounds stunning! The only thing I have green is my green jade jewelry and a green scarf I got while I was in India. Which is what I'm wearing as a wrap on my date. You're correct about green beer! Guniness is best. Have a grande Saint Patrick's Day and may a leprechaun give you his pot of gold! Namaste!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! If anyone can survive nine hours of fiddling it's you.

Sounds lovely, Ms. Fabulous! Since you survived last year's St. Patrick's Day, I'm sure you'll do well this year. :) At least you're not playing in the freezing rain.

Survived. Barely. Lots of pain.

But darn well worth it!

I'd do again. And again. And again.

we never doubted you.

Lorraine, the tribe has spoken; you are a true survivor! Did another take any photos of you performing & will you be posting them on your blog? Sounds as if you were a crowd pleaser!
My date last night was exhilarating. I felt as if I had swallowed a lighting volt. So charged up was I that I ran a bath to settle me down. I lit candles, poured a glass of white wine, put in rose petals in the water (roses grow like weeds in my back yard so I always have a bowl of rose petals, rosemary & lavender in a bowl by my tub) I even put on your CD Mirror /Mirror.
While listening to the song Dark Sonnet, I realized why I was so restless. You ladies perform that work beautifully but something about that poem rubs me the wrong way! One being that's it's impossible to believe that your boss never "been in love as such"! And a poet should never write what he doesn't feel! Also, I realized because of the following words why I was so unsettled. The thought of being in love again frightens me to the core! I've afraid to open myself up to another, only to be hurt again! I felt like J. Alfred Prufrock -Do I dare Distrub the universe? I found myself crying after the song. Still, it a lovely CD please make another soon!
Now get some rest and rest up those fingers!Namaste.

Writers make things up all the time. It's one of thier best tricks.

Speaking of writers, I had a letter from Carrie Vaughn's editor asking could they use a quote from a fan letter I wrote to her!

I was the coolest since I got an answer back from her saying SHE was a fan of MINE! The new Kitty book is our soon, go and check out the first two, Kitty and the Midnight House and Kitty goes to Washington.

Wonder who she based it on...We DO know a really lovely cool Kitty who I have never seen on a Full Moon.......

Of course writers make things up. But poetry, when it's great is more intense for at it's best it should go into and express the very core of our inner soul & being. I meant that a poet should never write an emotion he or she has not truly felt. Dante never went into the Inferno when he wrote his great poetic work BUT the truth of his pain and confusion he expressed and his deep love he felt came from his very soul & being and that what makes that work is so powerful and beautiful and a work that still moves modern man.

Yoga Gal, glad to hear your date was fun... and I always love Dante comments (the Dante course I took in uni left me breathless... and surprised at that fact)... the Prufrock reference also gave me flashbacks to uni.

Dark Sonnet is my favourite of LaM's songs, except perhaps for the live Baltimore tracks... and that is for a different reason... but musically, lyrically, and emotionally speaking it is all Dark Sonnet. While I know I stopped to think 'Gee, I hope Neil was not talking about himself when he wrote that line'... I can't help but think that the emotion expressed in this song could always come from a younger Neil, speaking through the older experienced one. I truly respect the ability of a writer to delve into him or her self and come up with subtle and exquisite details from their experience of life... and then put them into words that make those feelings come alive for others... to express that universality of emotion that is so difficult to communicate.

Lorraine, GREAT to hear about your positive experience with Carrie Vaughn... thanks for adding a few books to my reading list (it was getting short)... heh heh I was down to the last Beagle book on my shelf that I had not yet read... and then Neil went and mentioned it (I See By My Outfit) on his blog... so it definately won't last long.

if anyone out there isn't sick... please send me some healthy vibes... I have been down with a cold almost every second week since ... gee... Balticon last year. My coughing muscles are all used up.

Rubius! Sweetie! Health and healing to you - I had a nasty all-out flu last week, about 4 of us at work all came down with it last Thursday, and felt lousy til Sunday - not much of a St. Pat's day for us. But ok now, hope you feel much better SOON, and hope all have been staying healthy and having fun!

"Love is the most beautiful of dreams and the worst of nightmares." William Shakespeare

I agree with Rubuis, Dark Sonnet is one of the best songs on the Mirror / Mirror CD. It's performed with haunting beauty, which is why I like to listen to it while in a candle lit bath filled with rose buds and lavender. And considering that Mr. Gaiman was married at a very, very, young and tender age (in his early twenties I gather) I believe he composed that poem just to be dark and provocative and not coming from his heart. But then I could be wrong, only the poet knows. I do hope Lorraine posts photos of her St. Patty's Day gig. I would love to she how she looks in her rhinestone shirt and crossbone leggings!
My advice to Rubis is to rest, rest, rest and drink ginger tea!
It's the first day of Spring and it's overcast, cold and wet in Southern California! I hope it clears up Lorraine & Malena inspired me to buy a sexy black corset for round two of a romantic date but if this weather doesn't warm up I'm going to have to change my wardrobe plan.
I hope all of you have a magical Spring!

I had something I was going to say, but they're doing munitions training up the street, blowing up bombs and missles and stuff, and the rattling of the windows made me lose my train of thought.

At 6:00 PM , Blogger Rubius said...

thanks folks for the good vibes... would you believe I felt better the morning after I posted that? Hopefully this cold is on it's way out... now to discover where this wierd allergic reaction is randomly coming from....

Yoga Gal, my boss had a suggestion starting with 'G-I-N' too.. he told me to take a bottle of his gin home and drink it with Lemon. heh... I think I will skip the gin. Have fun in your new corset.
