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,
If I hadn't written this, I would use these to tell people I'd read it.
Sweet! I think this is a fun idea, O.
Thank you ma’am, it is off to a great start isn’t it!
Aye! She done good, didn’t she?
The Jolie adventures continue!
She’s going everywhere!
Hey, is the Jolie gonna make it to Burning Man this year? She has a week to get here!
She is The Jolie, Margie, she can do anything.
I think she would enjoy a ride in a helicopter.
Betty actually lives about a mile from the Sikorsky helicopter plant. The Jolie wanted to hijack a helicopter out of CT but we discovered that Sikorsky has good coverage when it comes to photo ops. Several of my neighbors work there but there is a cell phone/camera restriction prohibiting the devices on-site because, believe me, I wanted to have a neighbor photograph her in a Black Hawk.
Oooh, yeah, having someone doing Federal Time with the Jolie would be bad juju.
Knew the Jolie would enjoy CT.& Betty. Wish I had been there when she visited. Even armed, the Jolie was no match for the the giant weiner dog fore the giant weiner rules the Bubble & has very loyal subjects. Remember that Jolie, if you should ever choose to visit the Bubble again.
I’m sure the weiner dog was biding time, waiting for the proper moment to dispatch The Jolie. I’m glad they got to the marina before anyone was hurt.
I’m betting The Jolie will be making her appearance on the golf course, come rain, sleet or snow.
Based on her behavior here, I’m thinking Tiger may be in for being chased down the driveway again.
Awesome! I really enjoyed that.
I think this is going to be a lot more fun than I realized.
Betty, you have set the bar high. I have thoroughly enjoyed this post. I can’t wait for the next one.
You’ve changed your theme, Oma. Got tired of the old wardrobe, did you?
I started playing with it last night, when I should have been sleeping because I had a long drive to make today. I couldn’t find the one I had to go back to it, so the winner is…this one.
Kind of disturbing that they had a theme with a picture of me in a kayak.
Does that sushi have cheese on it? Anyway, I’m kind of nervous now. I’m (SPOILER ALERT) next up, and I feel like I have a lot to live up to!
It does look like cheese, doesn’t it? It’s actually a shredded spicy crab salad. We were kind of shocked by the mound of it when it arrived.
It really does look like it. I was wondering the same thing but decided that even if it were on the menu, no one would order sushi au gratin.
Don’t assume anything. At the county fair, they had deep-fried Twinkies, so anything’s possible.
That makes more sense. 🙂
The “cheese” being crab makes more sense, that is.
I’ve heard of fried soda…I’m not sure how that would work. I AM sure that I will never, ever partake of it.
I cant imagine that flaming hot twinkie filling magma would be all that good for you, but I have heard of fried twinkies.
Q, don’t be silly about fried soda. What kind of jaw muscles must you have to get it up thru the straw?
The Jolie could do it, don’t you think?
She could do it. She also has the ability to fry things in her mouth.
Something else I won’t be partaking of…mouth-fried food.
LOL! That was great! Good job Betty! 🙂
It was! Good pictures, no one went to jail. How can you not like it?
can’t believe the jolie snapped nancy’s neck. what a bitch. she’s going down. send her to me. let’s see what she can do on the streets of philadelphia.
also weiner dog is my hero
You live in a Springsteen song? That is so cool! I knew I liked you, but I wish you lived in Thunder Road.
But seriously folks, I’ll put you on the list.
Weiner Dog did play it cool.
I always thought Jolle could hold her liquor better than that, or at least meditate away a hangouver.
The Jolie can make herself drunk or sober by the force of her own will. She is addicted to herself, yet is a self contained Betty Ford Center.
Oh. My. God.
I thought you were joking about this. I want to be on the list to have Jolie at my house for awhile. Let me know when I can have her. I’ll send pictures.
I am always serious. Once I smiled, but I was serious and committed to it.
I’ll put you on the list!
[…] know the people and places she will be saving from certain destruction, The Jolie stormed through Connecticut and Queens, NY. And […]
