and how was your Holiday?

I had to work, but somehow in their infinite benevolence, the Labor Godz positioned me in the jetstream of some FUN!!!

Wasting away in Margaritaville? Not Quite – but close enough! I was assigned outside of Wrigley Field where there was a huge Jimmy Buffet concert. I met some rather amazing people on their way out of the show…

This wonderful guy illustrates why I LOVE Men! Not only is he gorgeous – his girlfriend made him this hat and he wore it, happily and lovingly ALL DAY! It is inscibed with the message: “I am cooler than you!” and indeed that is a $1.00 styrofoam cooler on his noggin’, granished with a paper umbrella.

Here are some more Parrot Heads – I don’t really understand the origin of that phrase – anybody!?! (I thought the lady looked like Paris Hilton, cough, Parrot Hilton, and the guy, hmm, maybe, Toby Maguire?)

Now here is something you don’t see everyday on a city street -
just a guy in his Hula Skirt!

On the Concrete Runway – a girl fully-fashioned to the HILT! Cheeseburger Hat: check! Coconut Boobies: check! Hula Skirt: check!

Ok, dudes, your turn -
does Changes in Latitude = Changes in Attitude?

    Slighty a combo of Toby and AShton while the girl looks like a combo between drunken Tara Reid and drunken Paris.

    Well, actually, the guy looks like one of the guys on that Rich People cattle ranch reality show.

    What a riot!! I will never forget the Jimmy Buffet concerts I went to… WAY too much fun (and WAY too much beer!!) And the whole Parrothead thing? Just what Buffetfans started calling themselves – remember when everyone was a something-or-other head? Like a motor-head, or a muscle-head, or metal-head? It was in the 80s I think… And I guess in a nod to the Islands and the whole tropical theme – Buffet fans became Parrotheads. Who knows – but I’m sure a WAY lot of beer went into it!!!)

    Although I’m not a huge Jimmy Buffet fan (I like some songs, but am nowhere near a Parrothead), one of my favorite concerts was one of his. It was maybe 8 years ago.

    It’s was such a hilarious scene. It was at a venue called “Great Woods” in MA. This is because the arena is surrounded by woods. Great ones. And that is where everyone went to pee. People had stationed themselves with toilet paper and the entrance to the woods and were handing it out to their fellow concert-goers.

    And nowhere else would I walk by a comlete stranger, have that stranger stop me and cheerily say “Hey! Drink this!”, hand me a little plastic boat of purple liquid, and proceed to drink the liquid as ordered.

    I’ve never seen that many people in that good a mood before or since then. You could really feel the love. Plus, I took a whole bunch of drugs.

    Good times.

    Nobody and I do mean nobody knows how to party like a Parrot head. I’ve been to several Jimmy concerts and even sober (I was pregnant) they are a blast. They are the nicest most fun loving group who just want the party to go on forever.

    You have not BEEN to a Buffet concert until you’ve been in Cincinnati (She came down from Cincinnati….—FINS). The most fun, the most decadent….according to Jimmy, the Parrot Head thing—it all started there!
