Talk about togas!

New Years Eve was an evening of fun with some old friends and some new friends. Here are a few pictures to prove it.

Our original plan was to go totally red-neck to attend the New Years Eve toga party. Many of you suggested plaid flannel and that was definitely in the plan. Camo was also in the plan. Has anybody tried to find plaid flannel lately or priced camo material? Holy moly! I even went to Good Will thinking I could find castaways. It wasn’t meant to be.

No problem. Plan B was put into action. What was plan B you ask? Plan B was we have no plan. So this is what you get when you have no plan.


Jim decided he’d be a Funeral Director since he hangs around funeral homes for a living. He is sizing me up for a casket in this picture. Nice guy, huh. I think I am a misguided floozie. You can’t tell in the pictures, but my hair is in a combination of pig tails and a side pony tail. All of the plastic stuff I added covers that part up. That’s probably a good thing. I needed a scraper to remove the make up I had plastered on my face. I thought the mismatched socks, spandex, and rubber shoes was a nice touch.

If you didn’t know better, you’d think we had Halloween and toga party mixed up.


Now here is a class act. I want a zebra robe like Patti’s. It took a bit of doing for Gerard to get those beer cans tied around his head “just so”. His toga covers the rear flap on his red thermal undies. That is probably a good thing.


Here we are at the party.


The host and hostess. Kim is elegant and Drew… well let’s just say the table cloth on their table was made out of the same material as his toga… Or was it the other way around… I thought the sexy pair of socks was a nice touch.

011Don’t ask what these two are grinning about, because I don’t know (and I don’t WANT to know!)


The big question of the night was “what does Jim have on under his toga”. I’m not sure, but I don’t think anyone ever found out for sure. I was afraid to ask, myself.


Yes, we were all very classy on New Year’s Eve, wouldn’t you say?

So there you have it. Toga 101 or What Not To Wear To A Toga Party!
