So to the picture…I love burlesque, I would love to have the balls to put on my fishnets and my corset and head out to the sugar club one night when a show is on. I used to love to dress for the Rocky Horror show, similar dress code. I just love it cos it is sexy but not sleazy, it’s much sexier than porn. The women who preform burlesque while playing a retro role, are more liberated and in control than the women you see in porn. It’s about seeing a bit, and then no more…oh well OK, then a little bit more, women all know this, it’s hide a bit, show a bit! I saw a really sexy basque in a catalogue and even though I know I should have said no I’ve ordered it…I just hope it gets here before next week when my wonderful boy friend and I pop away for a few days….it’s very sexy in a 50’s retro way! I think women in lingerie are much sexier than women in the nip….naturally, if you hide it a little it becomes a bit more attractive, now I’m not talking flannel nighties, that has the opposite effect, and if it doesn’t and your man gets his rocks off with flannel then I’d be worried and calling the men in white coats!
I need to have some adult fun. I am sitting in my bed, catching up with blog stuff, having drunk two bottles of Coors Light and eaten a bag of hand cooked ready salted M&S crisps…..these aren’t just crisps, theses are hand cooked by pygmies in the deepest Congo…. you know the drill! Today on the group blog i write for one of the feckless guys (he is a sweetie?) who writes for it gave a description of getting drunk yesterday, and one of my friends basically told him to cope on, and it hurt me.
Now I know why, I have been struggling with this for a while, the whole them versus me thing, it’s like I just don’t fit in the mummy mould anymore, now I have no husband I notice I am no longer asked to “dinner parties” I am not the same person I was before, I am kinda in between, I am a mummy some of the time, but a single mummy so it’s a “poor you, you are so brave” kind of thing, and then at weekends I am Midge who has a boyfriend and I go there and drink a bottle of wine, or we go out or I go out with my girlfriends, and I get drunk, it does not bode well for my liver (seeing my dads current situation) and it doesn’t work in my everyday life but I like to feel unencumbered and that I can just let go of the wheel for a night, I am in control of 3 other peoples lives all of the time, so I like the feeling of being tipsy, not worrying about what the kids have planned for the next day!
