"I Want to Poke Your Dot...."

After three hours of getting ready....we emerge!!

So, Saturday begins with no sleep and lots of giggles at Friday night's pictures and fun times.  I ended up staying at Joy's again versus driving all the way down to my parent's house in Torrance since they were meeting Wendy (Travelngirl) at Venice Beach for lunch in only a couple hours.  We opt to wear our evening clothes for the actual TB meet since Wendy's hostel is right around the corner from the TB Meet venue.  We opt to dress it down a bit with flip flops so no one has to wear heels walking along the Venice boardwalk.  So, now we have 5 women getting ready in 2 1/2 baths for an afternoon and evening of photos.  After a few hours, the hotties all emerge from the black circles under the eyes! LOL.

Hmmmm....what is that in your hand Jillian? LOL
  Of course, there's still a number of wardrobe changes involved for Jillian and Joy.  Joy goes through pretty much everything in her wardrobe and then Jillian has her share of changes and winds up back in the white outfit that she didn't want to wear for fear she's spill something on it.  Yeah, she says, "I wanna get dirty tonight"....LOL!!!!

We hop in Joy's SUV and we're on our way.  For those who don't know us that well yet, Jillian and I are magnets for interesting people and strange encounters.  Traffic is a nightmare on the freeway and we start watching the neighboring vehicles to keep us entertained.  Sure enough we find a couple carloads of very very young men who seem to take an interest in Joy.  A little waving back and forth ultimately lands us a "full moon" from one of the rear seat passengers.

Let's Party!!! Whoo Hoo
  Yeah, uh, OMG! Tried to get the pic but they were up too far and he sat back down by the time we were close enough.  That should've been the sign that it was going to be a crazy night!

We arrive at Venice after what seems like another birthday has passed and parking is unreal. We end up driving right by the venue so we know where it's at and proceed to park in the beach lot.  We hurry to the Sidewalk Cafe where we are meeting Wendy, and also a couple of Jillian's friends are set to join us but running even later than we are.  Wendy put our name in but they won't seat us without Jillian's friends.  After some chatting with the host, they let us in if we promise to order right away.  Trust us, we are STARVING, so that won't be any issue.

A new trio of cleavage!
 

Now that we're seated we can chat with Wendy more and I can tell right off the bat, she's soooo going to fit in with us!  I'm excited as I convinced Wendy to come to the meet up after we starting talking on TB about our shared love for Belize.  Mark and I are working on her to go with us to the TB Meet in October so it was a perfect opportunity to come meet everyone! 

The Sidewalk Cafe was such a fun place to people watch and the food was pretty good. I had a California BLT which included avocado and I had cottage cheese on the side.  Figured I had to try and be somewhat good since I was blowing my entire diet to heck with the alcohol this wekeend! LOL.  We were sitting there goofing around and next thing you know, Mel disappears.

Engagement Rings!!!
  She went to take a cell phone call and comes back and announces she found the engagement rings for her and Jillian.  I am still not sure exactly what transpired on Friday night but in the midst of their TB blogging and downloading photos from Friday, they somehow announced to Facebook that they are engaged! HA HA HA. 

Jillian's friends finally arrive as we are leaving - they had been looking for parking almost the entire time we were there eating! Jillian went outside to hang with her friends and ends up finding a hot surfer guy who takes an interest in her....not surprising! LOL.  We finish up and go check out the engagement rings that Mel picked out.  Her and Jillian put on their rings with maid of honor, Joy, as a witness. Crazy TB's!

We head back toward the direction of the car with Joy's leftovers in hopes of finding a homeless person to give it to.

Two thumbs up! I love this pic of Mel and I
  We are in Venice, you'd think it would be a piece of cake, right? Not!  We finally found one and she told Joy she'd rather have her money than her food! LOL. We keep wandering around and on the way, we find another crazy who stops me this time.  Someone else had stopped me on the way in trying to get me to listen to his CD and I politely told him we were running late and I couldn't.  Well, I get hit up again and this guy did not want to talk no for an answer.  I told him the same thing that I was sorry, we were running late for an engagement.  He then tries to hand me his CD and asks me to take it with me to listen (aka pay him for it).  I told him no and he says, 'geez girl, just gimme $15 then!'.  I was like, WTF?!?!  And then, it happened.
Venice Beach
....he walks around behind me and starts looking me up and down and says something I didn't quite hear.  I said "WHAT?" and he said, "Yeah, girl, I said it....".  OMG....Joy had to tell me what he said exactly.  He apparently said "I want to poke your dot".  OMG!?!? WTF!?!?! Why me?!?!  Yeah, no, uh, eeeeewwww!

I was still stunned by that one as we stopped for Joy to do a little shopping.  She bought a new top and a hat and opted to change up her outfit some.....hilarious after all the wardrobe changes at home!!! HA HA.  We find another homeless person, opt to all stay in our flip flops since we are at the beach, and walk around the corner to the TB meet up location in Marina Del Rey! Whoo Hoo!!
