I heart Lina ( & love those custom 1 of a kind Michael Kors creations she and her crew sported to the party). But more on that later.
Say, we can talk, right? I mean, we're cool like that - you and I, right? So I don’t really have to censor myself with you guys. Do I? I hope not, cause I'm about to let it all hang out for this one. *grin*
Man, this weekend I went to Fire Island to visit a friend. While I was there, I made some new friends, hung out with some old friends, and even booked a couple of gigs (event photography).
You wanna know what else I did? I went dancing with my friend Evelynn. Some of you guys might know Evelyn (or "E", as she's sometimes called). She's an international party girl. Mad fun, will party with anyone that will have her, and always on a mission to make the party better. Even if you don’t know her personally, you've heard of her, have a close friend that likes to party with her, and maybe have a few hard core opinions about her ways. It's all good. She's my friend. :)
Some of you might ask, what does Evelynn look like? Her appearance is constantly in flux, but overall, she's a little thing. I've never asked where she's from (there are rumors that she's a former CIA operative - born in
Evelynn and her erratic personality(ies)are legendary. Seriously. Some people think that she's always on. Always Up. Always on fire, but for real, she's more complicated than that. See, back in the day, I used to take Evelynn out to the clubs with me and introduce her to all my friends. During this time, we got to know each other pretty well. So let me introduce you to the 3 main personalities that makeup Evelynn, the party monster.
Rosie Perez: This is her all the time. ALLL THE FUVKIN TIME. When she's in your pocket, or you are thinking about maybe takin a dance with her, there she is. A dyed in the wool NewYOrican with extra hood tendencies. She's that friend that says shyt like "Oh cummoooon, Papi. I don't undah-stand why you's ovuh there on the wall actin like you shy. What's wrong, Papi? Let's dance!" All in that distinctive voice. This is the Evelynn that will get you in trouble, because that's what she is - a trouble maker. Evelynn is also that kind of girl that will give you the worst advise ever. "Go squeeze her titties, Papi. Wha!? She'll like it! You're cute, Papi. Who in their right mind would turn you down? Look, I help you, see?"
Jennifer Lopez: Evelynn has a different side to her also. See, she's also strives to be a little better than her past. She's that ghetto girl that's partied with the A- Listers, so she's got a taste for the glamorous life. She usually falls into this aspect of herself when we FIRST join hands and hit the dance floor. She scans the room, does a two step. Her movements are subdued, but every step is brimming with a sexual fire that threatens to explode over anyone that dares to meet her gaze. Her lips go into a pout and she takes that nasally
Charo: Some of you might not be too familiar with this reference, but it fits. Toward the end of every party, Evelyn, being the spirited lady that she is, falls victim to the drumbeat. When the music gets to goin, and the party gets to jumpin, it’s Evelyn that's encouraging you to join in with her exceptionally outrageous show. And what a show she will put on for you. This is usually about the time that she's convinced you that the best outfit to wear on the dance floor is also the most salacious. She's the one that has you bouncing around the club shouting stupid catch phrases(this weekend, mine was "I'm a Winner Baby, a Success" a'la "Mahogany" ) - More on that later.
That said, when you look at allot of these pics, I might not be the most composed. In fact, I might look like I was gonna strip down and start playin nekkid bongos, it's cause I was. If it looks like me and Whitney Houston could be good buddies, maybe make some late night cigarette runs to the 7-11, probably cause it's true. What I’m saying is, there's some H.A.M-age goin on in these pics, but gosh, we're cool enough that I can show you the scene without you being too mean. Right?
enjoy the pics.
Sunday was the Asencion Party where not only was it a beautiful day, but I got to meet and one of my fav DJ's, Brett Henrichsen (check us out below. I heart Brett) , but I had a damn good time, as you will see *laffing*.
