(not the) Pic Of The Day - Part II: Le cirque de la jambe

I'm still laughing about Tuesday night's episode of The Real Housewives of New York City.  In fact, I'm the process of re-watching it.

Today on my Instagram feed, this came photo popped up.  And yes, it is a circus.

Pic Of The Day - 07.23.14 - Sort Of

So...I realized I had not taken a picture of anything but I did remember this screenshot.  Even with the misspelling, it is accurate.

I worked late on Tuesday and as I was strolling around the 4th floor, I noticed this creature on a co-worker's desk.  It's how I feel sometimes.  Just sayin'.

(not the) Pic Of The Day - 07.22.14 - Le Leg, Le Cirque

I can't let the day end without commenting about last night's episode of The Real Housewives of New York City.  It was by far one of the funniest episodes ever.

I found it funny that Team Sonja consists of a psychic, a gossipy massage therapist and an entourage of people that we really don't know what they do but hey, they're Team Sonja.

I also find it funny that Aviva: 1) Carried around her x-rays (with her name on them); 2) She handed out her doctor's business cards for the women to call and verify that she has asthma...uh, it's called HIPPA; and 3) The leg being put on the table.

OK.  I've never been to Le Cirque in New York but I have been to Le Cirque in Las Vegas and they have high standards.  Taking off your leg and putting it on the table and then picking it up and throwing it probably isn't their good public decorum rules for the restaurant.  Granted, Team Sonja et al were in a private dining room but still, whatever happened to good manners?  I was just waiting for Countess LuAnn to say, "Money can't buy you class."

All of this reminds me of a postcard that I have somewhere in a box in my kitchen that has the saying, "In my family, homosexuality, schizophrenia, and alcoholism were a small price to pay for good manners and good public decorum."  Trust me, no one in my would be taking off their leg and throwing it.  This makes the table flipping and wig pulling look like an everyday occurrence.

Carole Radziwill said it best, "It ain't over 'til the fat lady sings . . or the crazy bitch throws her leg."

Pic(s) Of The Day - 07.20.14 - Mint Julep 2014

It was the 12th Annual Mint Julep presented by Lymphedema & Wound Care Intsitute at Limelight Houston and Kaye Sedilla made a triumphant return to the stage.  She brought the house down with her interpretation of Adele's Set Fire To The Rain.  And boy, did it ever rain money on the diva.  It was all for a good cause benefiting Legacy Community Health Services.  Special thanks to our co-chairs George Burch, Bryan Hlavinka and Jani Lopez (who made a Skype appearance from Paris, France).

Thanks to some of her adoring fans, photos were captured before and during Kaye's stellar performance.

She made a quick disappearance after her number.  Rumors started to circulate that she had to make a run for the border because Senator Ted Cruz and Governor Rick Perry were in hot pursuit with la migra.  Overheard at the bar, was that she had to make a quick return to rehab; her weekend pass was about to expire.  The more believable truemor is that Latin hunk William Levy was waiting for her at the corner of San Jacinto and McIlhenny and whisked her away to some unknown destination.  Maybe they're preparing for Dancing With The Stars?

Kaye, if you read this, PLEASE let know that you're OK and let us know if any of these rumors are true.

Pic Of The Day - 07.19.14 - Boas, sequins, and rhinestones. Oh my!

I spent the better part of Friday evening and all day Saturday prepping for Kaye Sedilla's return to the stage at Mint Julep 2014 benefiting Legacy Community Health Services.  While looking for her accessories, I found these earrings.  Perfect for a fundraiser!
