GIRL, it took a tube of Icy Hot, two days and four naps for me to recover from going out dancing 💃 on Saturday night, but it was so worth it. We had a blast.
Mostly, the best fun occurred between 11 – 11:30, which was shortly before we “peaced out,” because the DJ at Public Works in SF’s Mission, which is where we went, saved the ’90s hits we know and love for late in the evening.
The theme of the night was hip-hop hits from 1979-1999, but the DJ was stuck in 1979 from about 9:30 to 11, at which point Black Sheep started playing, and Naaman, Cindy and I (formerly known as “The Triumvirate”) lost our minds. 🤪
That’s also about when I took the pic at the top, which is why I’m extra dewy in it. (There’s three gallons of sweat rolling down my face.)
Some of the best parts of nights like this are the unintentionally funny ones, ya know? Like, we were dancing right next to a big group of friends, and one of the people in the group was a very tall woman who was wielding a huge black leather bag that was stuffed to the gills with something, and whenever she would dance up behind one of us, the bag would strike. Repeatedly! It turned into a game of round-robin, with a different one of getting trapped by the bag and pummeled for a while before we would switch places. “OK, it’s someone else’s turn to get the crap beaten out of them by this bag for a few minutes, haha!”
The lipstick I’m wearing at the top is MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Personal Statement (which, sadly, appears to have been discontinued, but if you want something similar, try Tailored to Tease), and I knew I made the right choice when Cindy, who isn’t a makeup person, watched me apply it, crinkled her nose and said, “It’s kinda florescent.”
And I was like, “That’s what I was going for. 🙂 ”
Oh, and please note how bright my under-eye situation is. I was actually really exhausted there because Connor was fussy the night before, and I didn’t sleep well, but Make Up For Ever HD to the rescue, baby.
Fun night! I hope we do it again, although I may need another six weeks or so for my muscles to fully repair, haha.
