Mom is turning the big 6-0 ya'll! To celebrate her milestone birthday I asked her to fly out so I could show her the sights and treat her to a fun, amazing birthday weekend, like only LA (and a slightly crazy son) can provide!
We started with The Edison as soon as she landed - my favorite new bar/club in downtown Los Angeles. It was Thomas Edison's old lab around the turn of the century, and they recently converted it into an amazing club - complete with his old restored equipment. I can't begin to describe how cool it is.
Mom of course dressed the part - it's a 1920's classy, dressy theme, and she did it up right! Performing that night was Big Willie's Burlesque!
Some people thought Mom was hired to be there for the club. So fun!
My amazing friend Peter came by to meet the infamous Mama Lowenstein, and also so I wasn't the only supertall dude there. ;)
"Doncha wish ur girlfriend was HOT like me..."
I have a love/hate relationship with Peter and Tara - they both are super amazing, fun, cool people, but dammit they can't take a bad photo to save their life. It's not fair! ;) PJ, whatcha lookin' at budddddy?
Mom made random friends! Hi peoples!
The always fun, amazing, and of course hawt Angelina and Sebastian came, my fellow Gemini troublemakers... ;)
How cute are they?? It's tough hanging with models all the time, but you know, you make do.
Sebastian's "Things To Do Before I Die" list is now one item smaller. ;)
Did I mention that girls seem to lurve his booty?
GIRLS! He's a person, not an object! Seriously! HIS EYES ARE UP... there... somewheres...
Later on Mom became BFF's with the Absinth-toting fairy girl:Who promptly gave her a free shot, in it's own little elixir glass. Fairy chicks always did like mom!
Mom figured she'd try a sip:
And it proved to be most funny. You see, Moms doesn't drink much, and well....
"WTF... What the... Darion... WTF is this? I thought you said it was lemonade made by fairies and was full of Angel rainbows mixed with hugs and bunny kisses?"
"Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee that's gooooooood lemonade! Yummm!"
"Oh... OMG... OHFMG.... WHAT IS THAT BURNING??? MY SPLEEEEEEN!"
Itrigued by the word Burning, I promptly prepared to take a shot:
"OH SHIZZ, YA'LL GON' REGRET THAT SHIZZ!"
"....Meh." "GLUG GLUG GLUG GLUG"
".... Meh. Alcohol lost all effect on me. Thanks LA."
"OMFG AFTERBURN MY LUNGS, THEY BE ON FIRE AND SUCH! LORD HAVE MERCY BABY JESUS!"
As Mom calmed down and remembered why she didn't drink, we posed for some fun group photos:
From left: PJ, Peter, Tara, Mom, TallFreakyManGiant.
Why everyone is reacting to each other and why I'm stonecold is unknown; will the records show that I am holding a bottle of water in my hands."GURL BabyMommaJ, how you be fittin' that big ass boy up in here? You just a lil thing! Dayumn."
Granted, Tara has never spoken like that in her life, but I find it's much more entertaining. Sorry T. ;)
We almost made it through the night without mom sharing an "I was in labor for 100 billion hours" story, but alas, it wasn't meant to be.
It was an amazing night and such a fantastic way to start off Mom's 60th (!!) birthday weekend! HUGE shout out to my amazing friends who came downtown to party with us - Peter, Angelina, Sebastian, Tara, PJ - ya'll friggin ROCK! Adoption papers in the mail. XO
