A shout-out to my bitches

Waaaaay back in the day, back when e-mail was first starting to become available to the general public, a group of friends who studied at and worked for the University of Kentucky formed a party list. It was a list of e-mail addresses utilized to let everyone know who was going out to the Cha-Cha Palace for big fun, maybe a show, maybe some cocktails, always some scandal. Some genius whose identity has never quite been confirmed, dubbed this party list The Psycho Friends Network, or the PFN. And thus a legend was born.

At that time, I was the youngest member of the PFN, and they used to get me into clubs underage, a fact I think I could still use against them in a court of law. Not that I ever would, of course. These days we're spread out all over creation, but we still keep in touch through that same e-mail list, and now we even have our own direct marketing campaign. Today I received in the mail from Cafe Press my very own PFN t-shirt, with our logo starring Lexington legend, the Pentacostal Lady.






















Miss Penny Costal, as we call her, walks the streets of Lexington, Kentucky permanently frozen in 1973 in her fabulous polyester pantsuits and matching nail polish and big bows on her beehive hairdo. If you have ever lived in Lexington, you know who she is...she is one of those local legends that is instantly recognizable to all ages and classes of people. Just like Penny, the PFN is frozen somewhere in the early 90s, where we all lived in the same place, worked and played together, and generally had the best time I personally ever expect to have in my entire life. So, feel free to go online to the PFN Store and purchase yourself a Penny Costal thong. It is high quality stuff, and I guarantee you'll be glad you did.

Really? Damn, that's young to peak like that.

Christopher this photo makes you look like a teen-ager, young and very cuddly. You know, when I meet you someday, I would like to scream with delight and run towards you and give you a very very tight and warm hug and a kiss in your cheek but instead I would probably be very shy and just give a nervous smile.

Oh run and scream, honey...that's much more my style anyway!

Oh, and Gayprof, I just feel like I was so unencumbered with all the obligations of every day life while I was in college. I've got lots of happy times ahead I believe, but I think when I look back at my life in many years, college will be when I had the most pure and simple fun.
