Last week I announced The Jolie Pez Project here on Blurt and created a post on her visit with me here in North Carolina. Today brings the publication of the first in a series of posts written by great friends of the blog who have volunteered to have The Jolie visit their homes and document their adventures.
Today’s post is by Betty, who writes the blog Betty’s Bubble. Betty took on a big risk in being the first to have The Jolie visit her. The result is a powerful post that documents a weekend of kidnapping, excessive drinking, violence, (attempted) seduction and sightseeing by The Jolie.
Please enjoy Betty’s work here and in The Bubble…
I should have known that The Jolie would be a troublemaker. Personally, I view her as a home wrecker. It came as no surprise that she continued her wicked ways here in Connecticut.
Upon arrival, she sprang from her, um, vehicle and immediately took a giant dachshund hostage.
Next, The Jolie ordered the dachshund into the wiener mobile.
They drove to the shores of Long Island Sound where a couple dozen members of the Class of 1979 were gathering for a mid-summer soirée. The Jolie took in the view from the observation deck of the Fayerweather Yacht Club.
She downed half a Corona in one pull, then began to dance and scope out the men.
The Jolie chose Chris as the object of her affection and decided to make her move. She quickly weaseled her way between Chris and Nancy.
In an attempt to eliminate Nancy from the picture, The Jolie delivered a swift and powerful roundhouse kick to Nancy’s arm, resulting in a bruise and snapping her neck – see the upper arm directly next to the Corona neck. The Jolie was then asked to leave the party. She spent the next day sleeping off her evening of self-indulgence.
After emerging from her hangover, she took a trip to Boothe Memorial Park. Here, The Jolie strolled by the rose garden and clock tower...
...and the Redwood House. The Redwood House is also referred to as the “Technocratic Building,” but if you Google that word, it doesn’t seem to have any relevance to architecture whatsoever. Nor does the house contain anything that might be considered technocratic.
Inside the Redwood House is simply another building, Jolie-sized, which she attempted to breach in effort to see if there were any married men in residence. Alas, none were present.
That night, she had a bite to eat with Betty and the Fairy god-daughter at Tengda Asian Bistro in Darien, CT, an annual event before the Fairy god-daughter’s departure for college. The Fairy Goddaughter is about to begin her senior year at Boston University (so proud!)
A few quick shots of sake later, The Jolie decided it was time to depart the humidity of Southern Connecticut. She considered departing by car, but there seemed to be a roadblock at the Merritt Parkway toll booth
Instead, we dropped her off at the Darien Metro North Station to catch a train heading toward westward toward New York and beyond. Happy Trails, Jolie!
The Jolie is on her way to her next destination. Where will she land? What sights will she see? What kind of attitude will she bring to that visit? Stay tuned.
Don’t forget, if you’re interested in being involved in the Jolie Pez Project, please let me know with a comment on the original post or by email and I will put you on the ever growing list awaiting the chance to be in her presence. Remember, everyone who gets a visit from The Jolie will receive a Pez! Yes, Pez! Stay tuned here kids, I’m creating a page for The Jolie to document her travels with links to each of her trips and the websites of her hosts.
Thanks to Betty and everyone for getting so into this silliness,
