My Spin on Lunch with Laundry

Yesterday I got up with Joann from Laundry Hurts My Feelings. Joann is a regular reader of my stupid blog. I mean, I have no idea how often she poops. What I'm saying is she reads this blog faithfully, because apparently she has a high tolerance for boredom.

Somehow she and I have become friends in real life, emailing and talking on the phone and so forth, so when she had a reason to come to North Carolina, we were all excited for a chance to meet and make out. We had lunch at the fancy hotel where she was staying, and then her poor husband had to take pictures of us acting the fool in the hotel lobby.

Lick
Here we are licking an expensive sculpture.

You will probably see more photos on her blog when she covers this fateful meeting, as her husband was using her camera and then every 15 minutes or so we'd say, "Oh! Take one with June's camera, too!"

I know at one point, we were making gang signs in the lobby, and some guy who was just trying to drink a glass of wine and read the paper said, "You'd better be careful. I saw a rival gang down here not long ago."

Everyone's a comedian.

Serenade
Here I am at the piano, telling Joann not to go changin' to try and please me. Did I mention we loved ourselves? Did I mention my effing Justin Beiber hair?

Harpies
Really, once someone strikes up the harp music, you can't help but shake your money maker.

It was about this point that security started nonchalantly strolling past us, so we struck a mature pose, finally:

Anyway. For those of you who are familiar with Joann, meeting her was as fun as you would imagine. She is a big hoot. Is what she is. And her husband tolerated us and he paid for lunch. He was a great guy, actually. And he is probably banning her from hanging out with me ever again, as we speak.

Oh! I almost forgot! She got me this!

Big
In case you didn't know.

I have to go now, because I am taking Edsel to his first half-day of daycare, with his sister Tallulah. We have eight free visits left and so far today Edsel has eaten a slipper, a tennis shoe, a bag of seeds, and Francis. It's either day care or the glue factory. Do dogs go to the glue factory?

Anyway, thanks for meeting me, Joann! Don't go changin'!

  1. Two of my favorite bloggers meet each other. LOVE! I can just imagine you two were cah-razy together. How much fun is that? Are you licking an ice sculpture, or just randomly licking a glass sculpture?

  2. A self proclaimed hypochondriac licking a glass fountain or a recycling water fountain? Dying! Looks like you two had loads of fun. By the way, your eyes in the last shot of the two of you are a gorgeous blue.

  3. I hope you don’t get all teary when you drop them off… together… at day care like other mommy bloggers.
    Glad you had a fun time with Joann!

  4. Guys? June is not telling the truth here. Well, at least not all of it. Go check out my blog to see the real deal. And yes, Justin Bieber was involved. There was also a harpist. And I forgot to mention on my post that June gave me a much better gift than a stinkin’ t-shirt. She gave me a beautiful necklace of the Eiffel tower because I’m Paris Hilton and she’s Lindsay Lohan.
    You’ll know what I’m talking about if you see the pics over at my blog. Not to be all pimpy, but check it out.

  5. I looked at the first pic three times. I’m laughing hysterically. Joann, you know I love you. June looks like she’s licking the glass. Joann looks like she’s throwing up, in her hand.
    Both of you are gorgeous. Love the outfits.
    You both took great pics to document your meeting. I’m so glad. You look like you had so much fun.

  9. Isn’t it nice to meet up with someone from internet and they’re not a serial killer? Both you and Joann look like you would never hurt anyone, other than annoying the wine guy and the security guard. Although a “June and Joann Land In Jail” post would have totally rocked.

  10. Wow. First this post made me laugh, especially making out with the glass in the lobby, and then I scrolled down through the comments. Hard to say what is more fun to read.
    There is something in the water over here. These comments are way funnier than what I get! Maybe I’ll just start telling my friends this is my site and I’m calling myself June, so they can be impressed with my internet friends. That would be less work anyway.

  11. I wish you had taken a picture of the foooood. I mean if I’m going to have my fun by reading about other people’s lives on the internet, at least feed me.
    You guys are insane. If you had come over to lunch at MY house yesterday, I would have sneezed on you and fallen asleep. Nasty head cold over here. However my engineer husband took charge and started “food Prepping” for like, seven meals, so you would have been fed. He says it saves time. His brain is weird.

  15. I know all y’all know how fantastic June is. I have to tell you how much of a sweetheart she is! I mentioned on my FB that I was feeling like crap and really could use a Sprite. Low & behold my doorbell rings and there is Ms June with a bottle of Squirt. It was like the heavens opened.
    Not only did she bring a bottle of Squirt, but Nurse June took a look in my ears with my otoscope and confirmed a diagnosis of a bulging tympanic membrane with a probable middle ear infection.
    Best of all, no co-pay charge! No, really, best of all was such a sweet act by the fantastic June!
    Thank you bunches & bunches, June!

  17. Also, June? I saw on Laundry’s site that you are definitely playing that piano while it is CLOSED, Girl! What’s the matter with you?
