Misc, Employment

Every week, I run to my mother's house and get the Sunday paper. I don't actually take the local paper myself, as I only enjoy reading the Sunday edition, and I don't figure it's worth the extra money to take it full-time, especially since my mother so kindly shares her editions with me...

So, I usually grab and look at all the sale fliers to see what's going on in the local shopping world, lightly skim through all the sections, and usually land on the Classifieds. I have been looking at the Classifieds more lately for that special someone, just in case there was some sort of great tech job that materialized up here. So, I was checking computer jobs last weekend and then decided to check miscellaneous employment as well, because sometimes interesting things end up there as well...

I saw the above ad. Now, I know that it is a little fuzzy, so let me read it to you:
(hold on...got tot get my glasses, ooops...already wearing them...um, ok...)

Slumber Parties By Dawn. Why spend another evening sitting around complaining about men. Redefine the usual Girls Night Out with slumber parties and live your fantasy. For Women 18 and up.

Um, What?!

No really, WHAT?!

Now, I just had a little girlie night last weekend, and yes, I suppose we did talk about our relationships...but the entire evening didn't center around complaining about the men in our lives. We certainly discussed our current life situations, and our reactions to them, and our subsequent feelings about them...but, I don't remember complaining. And, even if we had, would an all girl's slumber party solve anything? Cause, if I need to be over 18, to have someone host a slumber party to make my fantasies come true...with my girlfriends...I may have a whole new set of problems in my relationship. Or, does this Dawn person provide the girls...I mean, my head virtually swirls with possibilities and not any of them seem like attractive alternatives to the relationship that I am currently in.

Lord, what has happened to this small town? Am I reading too much into this ad? (and I always used to complain there was nothing to do here...ha!) I mean, it's bad enough that there will soon be 3 WalMarts no less than 40 miles from each other, we have an Old Navy and Kohls...

Besides, the only slumber party I ever remember anyone getting their fantasies fulfilled happened on one of my birthdays when my mother started a chocolate ice-cream fight in the kitchen and she finally had a reason to replace the ugly drapes that she always hated that were covering the sliding glass doors...

She was super happy.

And, we didn't even need Dawn.

LOL! How choice is this?? My gawd... A bunch of strangers fed up with men together in some room for the night. How scary are THOSE possibilities?!? Somebody put me out of my misery if I ever resort to 'classified slumberparties'! Have a sweet day! : )

Um... the ad is confusing.
However. I think I know what she's talking about. Slumber Parties is actually a company that sells sex toys and the like... I don't think Dawn is actually hosting slumber parties in the - let's braid each other's hair kind of way...

Totally. Why else would it be 18 and up? Yeah. I've heard about these before. I wouldn't go, but to go with totaly strangers? NO.

At first read I thought it said "by Dean" and I was less scared than when I realized it was "Dawn". Still scared, though. :-)

I say have your own slumber party anyway. It's nice to be reminded of how fun it used to be to be able to stay up as late as we wanted, do what we wanted, and laugh and giggle, play games, do each other's makeup. Now it's even more fun when we're older. What's more fun than staying up all night, drinking wine with your best friends, in your pajamas?

Isn't it required that someone's little brother harass the invitees of a slumber party? This ad can go down so many strange paths, don't ya think???

Shari said...

Gadget, you better not EVEN be thinking of doing a panty raid!

Liz is totally right. I've been invited to these before and my sister-in-law did these for awhile..it's totally sex toys and such for women....hopefully that makes a little more sense. :) Suz
