Miss Mathews


Here we have a photo from historic Abingdon Episcopal Church of a lovely bench nestled in some very lovely flowers in a patch of very nice sunlight, but enough of that because GUESS WHAT I have a very exciting announcement to make and it's this:

We're having a Mini Impromptu Blog Fest this weekend thanks to Meg from Soup is not a Finger Food, and Big Hair Envy, and Noe Noe Girl, and Ann Marie who are coming to my house Saturday for wine followed by some wine refreshments before heading to Mathews High School at 7:00 for the Womanless Beauty Pageant fundraiser for Relay for Life/American Cancer Society.

Please. If you are within driving distance, please come Saturday night. Not only will you be supporting a good cause, you'll also laugh yourself silly.

Plus I'd like to show you the fruit of all my days hours of hard labor without the benefit of an epidural or Lamaze: the birth of this womanless woman known as Bayman, aka "Miss Grimstead."

Purple glitter and spandex will be involved.

If you have any questions about glitter or spandex the event, or if you're struggling to understand coconut bras the meaning of life, e-mail me at

ChesapeakeBayWoman@gmail.com.

I will definitely take pictures but dial-up internet and problems with my computer may preclude my posting them before next week, which will be approximately the same time I recover from all this.

Hypothetically speaking, if you were at a show where men were dressed up as women competing in a talent segment, what would you enjoy seeing them do that could be classified as PG-13?

Hypothetically speaking, does "one size fits all" include all sizes of men when fishnet hose the item in question is made exclusively for women?

p.s. Tonight fellow Mathews County blogger, Miss Mermaid, becomes Mrs. Mermaid on a very special piece of Mathews County land. Congratulations, Lady Mermaid. Watch out for the fiddler crabs, they are killer down that neck of the woods and will latch onto you like clip earrings.

Meg @ Soup Is Not A Finger Food said...

I am beside myself with how much fun this is going to be. And I'm not even really a purple glitter kind of gal!

Looking forward to the drive, the wine, the spandex - all of it.

Mental P Mama said...

Ohhhh I was so tempted. But I must stay up here. sigh Break a leg, Bayman!!!!!

Diane said...

Yet another moment where I wish I lived closer. May I suggest feather boas?
I would like to request a shot of Bayman wowing the audience!

Meg @ Soup Is Not A Finger Food said...

I have a white feather boa... somewhere. Not sure where. Will dig...

big hair envy said...

The offer to bring the Show Choir makeup kit still stands....but it sounds as if you have it all "covered"!! Bwahahaha!!

WV: redgine
Is that the color lipstick that Bayman will be wearing? I hope he doesn't get any on your wine glasses:/

Daryl said...

Okay .. one size DOES NOT fit all .. look for PLUS SIZE Leggs or some other brand ... and then get the largest you can find because men take things 'up' differently then even the tallest of us women....I am so wishing I didnt have so much to do and could get down there .. someone who can post those pix faster needs to be the official photo-taker ..

Ah! WV: vaimp .. male version of vamp, of course

Caution Flag said...

You "girls" are going to have some big fun!!

Why is my WV so long? undahajo

Jamie said...

I could use some wine therapy and a few good laughs. Sadly, the high school scheduled the only saturday softball game for tomorrow which is also going to be the most gorgeous day so far this spring. Figures. Otherwise I would have made the trip... but will be down at some point this month!

Meg @ Soup Is Not A Finger Food said...

I can bring photos back to the land of high-speed internet and have 'em up by Sunday evening...

Fighting Mermaid said...

Like the first mosquitos, summer fun comes early in Mathews. Thanks for the happy wishes and fiddler crab warnings...I brake for crabs...that is a bumper sticker that I'd like to have!

Girlie Man?

I am hoping that BayMan, will turn into GayMan, and I will be his mermaid after the show!

Meg @ Soup Is Not A Finger Food said...

Burly girlie-man.

Grandma J said...

This is the ultimate way to make me jealous! I'm almost ready to hop a flight to Virginia for the big event...but I can't so I'll pout instead.

PLEEEEZE take loads of pics!

Grandma J said...

Will there be any waxing involved? Like in the cleavage area? legs?

Mrs F with 4 said...

I'm home alone with just the four children... I wonder if I can make it in time? Oh, hold on, two of THEM are passportedly-challenged, also.... damn.

Promise, PROMISE you'll take pictures?

wv: chide ...if you forget your camera, I will seriously chide you!

I hope Bayman wins the Girlie Man contest!! Can't wait to see pictures....

After the trying on of costumes, etc. this evening, if my client does not win it will not be for lack of trying, and whether he wins or not there will be plenty--PLENTY--of laughter, which means we all win.

Middle Sis - the blog ladies and/or CB Son will definitely take video footage which you will not want to miss. Wish you could be here. You'd love the Isley Bros. song that will be played...plus the song that CB DAUGHTER! suggested for the talent competition, which is absolutely perfect. The song is killer. Can't reveal too much at this point but rest assured you'd appreciate the music and beam with pride that she suggested it, especially since it's a disco-era song.

HAPPY FRIDAY!
