This is "last minute", I know, but if you're on Oahu and "midlife" and you're nostalgic for those good times doing the Bump to "Brick House", the annual "70's Nighclub Reunion" dance will be happening on Saturday night at the Ala Moana Hotel. Check out their website: http://www.70snightclubreunion.com/ I went last year and it was fun!! The reserved seats are sold out, but no problem, we didn't have reserved seats last year and were able to enjoy ourselves. I wouldn't say it was like going back in time because...uhhh...the bands were no longer a bunch of "cute guys". Nevertheless, it was a kick to see "Glass Candle" again and maybe if you close your eyes, you WILL go back in time *LOL*
I actually met my husband for the first time at Duke's in the International Marketplace where Glass Candle played. I didn't get to talk to him, but he knew my friend and sat at our table talking to her. I thought to myself, "she always knows the cute guys!" Months later we met again and ever since then, it was ME with the cute guy. *LOL*
It's hard to believe that was 33 years ago. Don't you wish you could travel back in time and do it again...the good parts anyway. As they say, "youth is wasted on the young." Imagine having the physical benefits of youth and the mental/emotional benefits of midlife. Zoweeeee! We'd be superpeople!! Less drama, more enjoyment and appreciation for sure. I wasn't into drama like some of my peers, but even so, we are all more cognizant in midlife of what matters and doesn't.
I'm still mad at the writers of "Benjamin Button" for making young-looking old Benjamin SENILE. Grrrrrr!! But HA! to them because they didn't win the Oscars for either writing or Best Picture. They might have won had they not been so lazy as to abandon aged Benjamin! Nevertheless, I'm very glad that "Slumdog Millionaire" won instead. Hurray for Bollywood (even if technically it wasn't a Bollywood movie).
