Did anyone see the new Bravo Godzilla commercial featuring Dorinda, Sonja, Giselle, and Karen Huger?  I wish they had tried to insert it into the show like they did with the Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson movie. Because it then goes from contrived and fake to sublime and surreal.

Dorinda: "This new Godzilla movie is really good. It really has a lot of parallels to Luann's struggle with alcohol."

Sonja: "I think Ghidorah is such a great representation of Luann's issues. One head is alcohol. The second head is her entitlement. The third head is Luann's fear of showing any vulnerability."

Dorinda: "So true. Luann should see this movie. Maybe it'll help her figure out how to summon her own Godzilla."

Voiceover: Godzilla: King of Monsters in theaters now.

Also there was missed opportunity by not using Stassi's boyfriend Beau in the commercial because he had a little dance break scene wearing his T Rex suit during Vanderpump Rules. Beau could have arrived wearing a Godzilla suit like Dorinda. They could have "a who wore it better" joke. The punchline is that Godzilla roars and they all agree the original, aka Godzilla, wore it best.

Yes, I punch up shitty commercials in my free time.

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I just checked, and it’s not there. No one else watched. Sigh. 😔 

I did. I had seen part of the videos that she did not to long after she died. I thought the show was well done and I applaud her bravery.

Can someone give me input on attire for my niece's bridal shower?  Normally, I would wear some nice pants and blouse, sandals small heel, etc.  It's going to be over 80 degrees, but, this is inside in a home.  (Upscale.)  But, do you think a dress is necessary?  Something like this, only not in white.

I'm probably the last person that should respond to bridal shower attire but I think what you have chosen is perfect.  I would be surprised if there will be many in dresses.   JMO.

That's what I thought. Being a family member, I thought I might go a little more dressy, but, I still think the dress pants are ok.

I truly think the dress pants is dressy enough. I really do.  

I’m betting others will agree, too.  😁

Being from the same state as you, I think your choice is good. It’s feminine and up to date style wise. I do see a number of women wearing dresses when dining out (ha, I’m usually one of them) but I think it’s smart. You don’t want to upstage the bride or her mother.

Hmmm Dillard’s.  Must be Florida?  I’ve lived in New York and Florida and went to many showers.  My usual is silk black pants, pretty black heels, and a Lacey white blouse with my favorite long necklace.  I hate dresses.

Thanks to those who chimed in with tips for the bridal shower attire.  It turned out fine.  It's a good thing that I did opt for the dressiest pant outfit that I had.  MOST everyone there wore dresses and pretty glamorous dresses at that. I've never seen that before.  I'm not complaining. My outfit fit in fine.   Hey, I love seeing young ladies in their very best. lol  NO jeans or causal attire at all.  NOW, I have to rethink my wedding attire plans.  I'm not sure how my niece has gotten into this clique,,.......she's always been very down to earth jeans/cowgirl boots kind of person.  lol

Well, I attend a fair amount of events and I was surprised too.  Maybe, these ladies were planning on going out to a more formal event AFTER the bridal shower.  Most of the time when I attend an event, I'm the most dressed up person there.  lol  But, this worked out fine.  She (the couple) got some lovely gifts and she seemed to love what I got her.

I am drooling over all the beautiful dresses that girls and women are wearing these days.  My daughters AND granddaughter look simply gorgeous in the flowery, frilly dresses they are making now.  The shoes are to die for.  I wish I was young again.  Damn.

Thank you all for your kind words.  Man, life is so precious. We are certainly missing an angel now.  I do have faith that I will see him again one day.  I am a little concerned that I'm going to sob through it though.  I'm NOT a very outwardly emotional person, but, with this.........omg.  It's hit me hard.  One of those things that I'm just going to try to get through it. 

I will take the suggestions into consideration.  Maybe try them and see what feels best. No one will probably notice, but, you know.  

Just a little update to the loss of my dear friend.  I recently sent his mother a card along with some photos of he and I together. She was touched and called me.  We are planning on having lunch very soon.  She sounded like she's really missing her boy.  Me too.

That is lovely!  I recently had a somewhat similar experience, but not.  Long story short, I ran into my first love / HS boyfriends mom at Christmas Eve Mass this past year.  I had not seen her in 20 years but she is friends still with my mom and I am on FB with her.  I cannot even tell you, it was like another world experience.  We were walking back from taking the Eucharist and I saw her sitting there.  I literally ran to her and said “OMG IT’S (her name)!  It took her a minute and she started crying.  

TL / DR.  Life is too short.  Find the people you need to find.  Love is all around us!!!

According to DO-RA-(mi-fa)-SO, Scott probably bought it for her.  ‘They’ have an arrangement you know. 😄

Lol, this was lame but it might work if we get two more housewives that can be mi-fa. 😏

ETA:  Lol, in continuing with my lameness, ''mi' could actually be 'BetheME" as some call her.  Need to figure out who 'fa' would be.  If we continue 'la' possibly LuLu and 'ti' for Tinsley.

Well, it was filmed before Christmas 2018.  Think of all the expensive stores in N.Y.C.  Maybe Dorinda would know as she knows everything.  If not, maybe John the cleaner would know.  I loved it too.

so - that luann tumble into the bushes?  i kinda sorta did that to myself stone cold sober - with consequences.

long story longer: my side yard is meant to deter wannabe trespassers/marauders with many soda cans hidden underneath overgrown jasmine & honeysuckle vines.  for the first time, my awesome kitty escaped out my back door as I was feeding Mama raccoon the other night (she was thoroughly unimpressed with the reunion, as was i), and he ran to said side yard.  i was in hot pursuit, and was hoisted on my own petard, taking a specfuckingtacular tumble.  My cat returned to my side with alarmed concern; then I felt a paw tentatively touching my head - yeah, that was Mama raccoon making sure I was still alive.

next day I found out i have a broken wrist (left, luckily) cracked kneecap, and some nasty wounds on the other other leg.  nurse wrapped my temporary splint so tight my fingers were turning blue, so I had to rewrap it myself.  oh, and thanks to the goddamned opiod crisis, all i have for pain relief is Tramadol, which does less than baby aspirin for me.  so i am icing everything. and typing one-handed; pardon the non-capitalization. allegedly, i am supposed to see an orthopedic surgeon, if my cheapo hmo ever gets their shit together.

fuck me!!!   it ain't easy opening cans of cat food one-handed ...   good thing my kitty stands still for his insulin shots, even without the neck pinch!   :~)

i take great pride in having a repertoire of cusswords that would make Trixie the Whore (Deadwood) blush.  Don't care who fucking hears me, either.  Houses on either side of me are currently unoccupied (yikes - i will have new neighbors for the first time since 1988!!!), and my steadfast neighbors across the street keep their windows closed  (keeping in the  AC, not keeping out my inadvertent vulgarity).  they drop f-bombs when the kiddos are out of earshot, so it's all good.

Last time I sober fell I was on crutches. Being Italian I let go of my crutch and injured the other fuckin ankle! That should have stopped the talking with my hands. 

My husband and one of our friends were standing in a creek while we were camping. I opened my tent and watched them talk, hands flying everywhere. They woke me up so I went over with some rope threatening to tie their hands together so they would be unable to speak. They are still mad about it!
