Blah Blah Blah and Blah

Moi, LA, 1980's. 
(In keeping with our current horsey theme, I was wearing an Arabian horse t-shirt under my vintage men's tuxedo jacket)

I've been known to frequent hot spots in LA, just not frequently.  And of course in this point in our lives we actively try NOT to go anywhere that the in crowd goes.  Cuz we're not.  In.  AT ALL.   But in the 80's I was single and living in LA and riding the bus to work and . . . back up there, Vintage Christine.  Riding the bus to work with a bunch of little old Jewish ladies who screamed at the black bus driver is NOT cool.  Funny yes, cool no.  I'm not Jewish but I would've converted if it meant I'd get the balls to yell at bus drivers in LA.  Apparently one of the things they teach aspiring bus jockeys is a course called "How To Be An Asswipe and Become Deaf While Driving a City Bus".  WHAT, you rang the bell and wanted to get off back there?  Didn't hear it--so what's the big deal, get off now and walk back six blocks to the hospital.  WHAT, I just sideswiped that parked Lamborgini?  Hey, they can afford to get it fixed, stupid rich whiteass muhfuhs.  Hopefully, this has changed since the 80's but somehow I doubt it.

Are you going to get to the point here or does this free associating just go on forever?  Hey, sometimes it's refreshing to write like all those would-be already-world-weary-at-21 aspiring novelists out there in blogland!  You know, the ones who go on and on and on and on about one scene in a movie YOU'VE never even heard of and wouldn't want to watch anyway since they never even CONSIDERED Johnny Depp for the lead.  

(Sounds of Vintage Christine followers screaming and bolting for the exit door under the "Followers" heading)

Question: It's 1980, I'm surrounded by THREE cute guys, including one in a cowboy hat who was an actual bull rider, so WHY AM I FROWNING?

To tell you the truth, I can't remember, but suffice it to say that what I DO remember is the next morning I had a smile on my face and a cowboy hat on my bedpost.
Ah, the 70's and 80's.   Thank you God for letting me do all that stuff and still be alive in 2010.


  1. I know why you're frowning...actually, it's not a frown. It's a look of concentration. You were doing "eenie, meenie, miney, moe, catch a cowboy by his..."

  2. LOL@Mz Chickens!!

    There were jews in L.A. in the 80's? Ha ha. I'm half jew, so I can make fun of half my people ***snicker***

  3. Miz Chickie made me laugh so hard I snorted! And I think she's right! If you're half Jew and half Christian, does that make you a chr-jew? Cuz then we'd have to say "Bless You!"

  4. Stop already!!!!I love your blog Christine because the comments are as funny as your hilarious posts. Is there another word for hilarious because I'm tired of that word. Anyway, I have to go cook for 10 old people so I have to stop laughing long enough to put my shoes on. Mozeltoff all you muhfuhs.

  5. A cowboy hat on the bedpost? My imagination is running wild..
    what a hoot.

  6. You crack me up. I lived in New York City for years, so I know all about the hollaring old ladies with balls. Never get in the way of a granny with a shopping cart at Gristedes. It WILL hurt. Quick, send me your address by email. I have something horsey to send you!

  7. P.S. I would have picked the ginger haired one with the dimples on the left.

  8. Hahahaha oh Chris your a riot! I love your outlook and tellings on life. I cant wait to meet you at the party this summer!

  9. I will never post anything as funny as this. Ever.

    I miss those days. If I'd have known I'd go this long without sex, I would have had it several times a day, every day during the 70s and 80s. Blast. We were lucky though, with all that unprotected sex, weren't we?

    You rock my world.

  10. Damn, girl, now you got me all intrigued and I am writing a screenplay inside my head for "Whodunit" (of the 3rd dimension, or 3rd position... you got the point...) ... No worries. Johnny Depp is playing one of them. Any requests for the other two?

    p.s. btw, you rocked the tux. I've always wanted to wear a tux tailored for me. Like this:


  11. Good stuff. Love the pix and the hairdo. ;o)

  12. Oh too wonderful! I'm at work and had to stifle my laughter or else give away my slacking! Good Job!

  13. You are just really right about what you have posted in many ways.
