Men really are funny when they talk about bras :: even funnier when they wear them. Throw in flashing lights and a deer rack attached and you are asking for a giggle fit. They just light up : turning all red with mere mention of a BRA! Check out the funny photos at the bottom.
Thursday night I judged a male bra contest at Harrah’s in Tunica. It was put on by the employees there as a way to raise money for the American Cancer Society. A mixture of Harrah’s execs and local media men modeled the bedazzled bras. I’m talking a fancy Victoria Secret style stage and catwalk. I almost fell out of my chair as the guys strutted their stuff. Teams of employees did the creative decorating.
It was called Battle of the Bras. It was a first time event with many more sure to be held. In media we get asked to attend a lot of functions :: if only they were all this fun and hilarious!!
Oh, and a big shout out to my mom. She’s been here with me in Memphis about a week now. I’ve made her go all over the city with me. Concert :: Grizzlies basketball game and bra war!!! I love sharing my life with her. Hope she’s not too worn out!!!
It’s no secret my favorite season is fall — for many reasons. Maybe because it’s the season of my birth, maybe because I always loved being a cheerleader in high school and standing on the football field feeling the cool night air on my neck, maybe it’s a result of tv shows/movies showing me as a kid what fall looked like in other parts of the country. I may not be be able to trace it, but the season has become romanticized in my memories. The thought of pumpkins, spice, soup, acorns, family, and lazy days make me so happy.
Some people are more seasonally oriented. I’m one of them when it comes to perfume and music. I just the other night finished my fall playlist. It’s not a comprehensive list — just the one I made for myself this year. Had a blast writing it out — it’s a mix of old and new, happy and sad just like the autumn memories they all represent.
