When: Sunday May 16th
Where: Wendy Mae's house
Why: Girl's Night
The Cast: Gillian, Wendy Mae, & Leandra
(Caitlin was there too, but she left before the following conversation happened...)
Leandra: You know who died today?
Leandra: Ronnie James Dio.
Gillian: No way! Bummer.
Wendy Mae: Who?
Leandra & Gillian *together*: RONNIE JAMES DIO
Wendy Mae: Who was that?
Gillian: Lead singer of the band Dio. Heavy Metal band in the 80's.... Tenacious D were big fans. ...(I giggle.)
*Leandra begins to sing Dio... I can't remember which song. I was aching to tell Wendy Mae why Ronnie James Dio is so awesome; tell her how he replaced Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath when Ozzy left... but I didn't think she'd care about any of it. Instead I realize A LOT of people have died this week... and I say so....*
Gillian: Man, A LOT of people have died this week.
Wendy Mae: Brett Michaels.
Gillian: Brett Michaels died? No shit?
Wendy Mae: NO, but I heard he's going on tour.
(*Wendy Mae was right, I died a little on the inside knowing that...*)
Gillian: Lena Horne died this week too.
Leandra: Yeah, that's right.
Gillian: Sad about that one, I dug her.
(*I get up to go to the bathroom at this point and Wendy Mae's following words stop me dead in my tracks*)
Wendy Mae: What killed her? Drugs?
Gillian: Drugs? What? I don't think so... not really her style.
*Leandra is snickering at this point, while I stand in the doorway to the bathroom looking at Wendy Mae like she's gone crazy.*
Wendy Mae: Oh come on, they all did drugs!
Gillian: I highly doubt Lena Horne was a drug addict... wait... "they all" who?
Wendy Mae: All those bands in the 80's... you know they did massive amounts of drugs!
Gillian: (now I'm laughing hard...) WENDY! LENA HORNE!! NOT LITA FORD!!
Wendy Mae: OH!! Right!
*then I close the bathroom door while reciting: "went to a party last Saturday night, didn't get laid, I got in a fight...uh huh.. it ain't no big thing...."*
*... and scene! *
with some more awesome thrown in for good measure....
