Christmas Party Tour is Over!

The Christmas Party tour this year was very fun. Every party was great and I have plenty of pictures from each of the events. I thought it was going to be really hard to choose a favorite picture to display on the blog until I saw this one.

This picture comes to you directly from the Phoenix Christmas party which was held on December 19th. You are probably thinking, what is so special about this picture? You are standing there laughing with Jane, so what? At first glance I would tend to agree but when I was looking at this picture I made the following startling observation:

I love this photo because one rarely gets to see what they would look like with a major deformity, for instance the loss of a limb. In this photo, which I have entitled, "Jane the Flamingo" she does a fabulous job of demonstrating that it is possible to still look good even if you have lost one of your legs in a tragic accident or mishap. Even with a missing limb she is not afraid to put on that short skirt, get out on the dance floor and have fun at parties.

Jane, your courage and positive attitude makes you a role model for amputees everywhere. You can hear more about Jane's story and see her one-legged navigation around Phoenix in the Premiere episode of the new TLC drama: "Life with Missing Limbs". (Premiers January 25th)

It looks like Kim is propping her up to compensate for the missing leg.

Kim, are you sure you have not taken this opportunity to point out jane's flaws so we do not notice something growing out of your fanny in the very same photo...

without a doubt this is the funniest thing yet. The TLC reference is great. The party also looked fun, now I wish I would have gone.

I wish you anonymous folks would show your names! At least squarebob, cap'n jeff, squidward, carl's jr, dora, jane and plankton have gotten a little creative.

This is in response to a phone call I just received from one the readers. I asked if she had read the blog lately and she said "yes, that is why I am calling I couldn't even respond to the blog because I am so upset with you."

She proceeded to tell me that I had crossed the line with using the word deformity about our good friend Jane. I said I thought it was funny and she said that at the very least I really needed to change the wording of it from deformity to catastrophe. She also thought I had lost all sensitivity and the post was cruel and mean spirited which was very unlike me. Referring to Jane as the Flamingo was rude and I should apologize. I wasn't really following any of this logic and I said so. Next she said "Well, a deformity indicates she was born without the leg. A catastrophe indicates that she lost it later" "She wasn't born without it was she?"

At this point, I died laughing. Which probably initially she did not understand. Then I told her to look closer, that I was standing in front of her and that she does indeed have two good working legs. (LOL, I am dying again and it is not helping my throat)

At this point Ms. Sensitivity says "god, I was wondering how she could get on the dance floor-I was thinking that must have been quite a sight." ROTFL

Girl, have you no shame? Now you're poking fun at the mentally challenged?

I don't want to tell you this but that's not Jane. I think that's Ileana Over Backwards from Falls City, WA. She works at the IHOP there. Her husband Bend Backwards is just like her. Being friends with them is very one sided...

Loving My Christie :)
