Tis the Season

The New York City Holiday Party scene as been severely impacted by the Transit Strike. Quite a few parties have been cancelled, or sparsely attended. However, I did make it out on Tuesday to the Improv Comedy Club party. My date, of course, was my husband Jim. He was also my official photographer for the evening.

There was no pre-arranged agreement, but boots seemed to the look of the evening. On my left, Sue Costello, is an accomplished comedian and actress. She just finished a run of her acclaimed one woman show, Evolution of a Sexy Mutha Fukhah. On my right, Linda C., is talent and club manager for the NY Improv.

I was a good girl this year. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. But this good girl decided that leather was in order. Leather mini skirt, jacket and what my Mom refers to as my "thigh high pirate boots." A friend said, "Those boots look like they come with theme music." And a catwalk too, if you please.

[On a side note, I first bought and wore these boots in my early 20's. Wayyyyyyyy before I had the ability to carry them. I walked into a candy store to buy gum, and the man behind the counter said, "Baby, in those boots, you can have anything you want." He wasn't talking about candy. Oh my. Those boots sat in my closet for quite a few years after that!

The award for the best boots of the night go to my girl, Ms. Gina, pictured here on my left. Those red boots are HOTTTTT!!!!!! Danielle, on my right, didn't get the boot memo. :-)

Happy Holidays!!!!!!

Nice to meet you Jim!!

Wow, you and Jim are "In the Know" my sistah. Ya'll-got-it-going-on! And since your hubby does sports stuff as well, please have him write some funny stuff about the Cowboys...that's the one thing that may keep me out of Heaven. I live in Dallas and do not like them, it's pure torture! :)

I'll have to agree with Brunsli, the boots are HOT and if you ever get tired of them....just send them my way! LOL!

Keep em coming, Peace!

I hate to break the news to you, but my husband is probably the only native New Yorker who's a Cowboy's fan. Sigh. I think it has something to do with those blasted cheerleaders but he will neither confirm nor deny this! :-) Actually he says it's about Roger Staubach, whoever that is.

Are you sure those boots aren't wearing you? They are pretty hot! I can see how you would keep them in the closet until you could carry them. At 20 I knew I couldn't wear boots like that. :)You go! It's nice to see your DH on the blog too.

What??? Just my luck and yes, I'm know that Roger guy! lol!

I must concur with everyone else that you are doing the doggone thing in your boots. I also really liked your friends red boots.

Thanks too for posting your hubby's website....it was nice to see the man behind the "very funny lady" (-: I bet you guys are a lot of fun to be around.

LaChanda my hubby can't stand the cowboys either and is constantly arguing with other folks here in D-town about them (lol)...you two should meet!

Hey Leighann,

Glad to know your husband is a fellow writer, photographer and comedian. Thanks for sharing his link. Cool!

I really would like to have some boots this winter, but you can't have everything, right? Lookin' good!
